Do you have questions about women empowerment in the Church? Wonder when education in America began and how? Learn about the fascinating history of the Catholic Church in this noteworthy lecture by George Weigel, author, theologian and Distinguished Senior Fellow of the Ethics and Public Policy Center.Weigel gave this presentation in a distinctly Catholic setting — our church — in celebration of St. Ann's 150th anniversary as a church this year (2019-2020)."The Church in the United States was largely run by women and has been for the last 150 years. Women ran the schools, women ran the hospitals, women ran the social service agencies... This was one of the few venues prior to the last 50 years in American life where intelligent, service-oriented, assertive women could find a leadership role in society.""The faith has to be proposed. People have to be invited. And they have to be engaged."See photos: with us! Follow #StAnn150Read Weigel's biography:
"The moment you think you're more righteous, you just sinned. That's the beauty of it, in paradox. Christians rejoice in their sinfulness: 'O happy fault, O necessary sin of Adam, that has gained for us so wonderful a Redeemer!' Had it not been for sin, friends, there would be no need for a Savior."
"We all have a vocation to be a saint, but no one has a vocation to be a saint in the same way you do."
“God ordered friendship as a natural good for us,” Msgr. Watkins says. “If that is true in the natural order, it is also true in the supernatural order. We need *friends* in heaven. This is the communion of saints.” #AllSaints
From the Gospel of Luke 18:9-14:Jesus addressed this parableto those who were convinced of their own righteousnessand despised everyone else."Two people went up to the temple area to pray;one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself,'O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity --greedy, dishonest, adulterous -- or even like this tax collector.I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.'But the tax collector stood off at a distanceand would not even raise his eyes to heavenbut beat his breast and prayed,'O God, be merciful to me a sinner.'I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former;for whoever exalts himself will be humbled,and the one who humbles himself will be exalted."
He did everything right. What was his mistake?
"When the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?" (Lk 18).
"We are extraordinarily blessed by Almighty God to be here today."
Ten lepers were cleansed — but only one returned to give thanks in this weekend's Gospel.Do we delay our gratitude? If you really mean gratitude, show it, so that one day Jesus can say to us, too: "Stand up and go; your faith has saved you" (Lk 17).
How do we balance discipline and emotion?
