The kingdom of God is supported by an even greater force, the one that created the universe, God's kenotic, self-emptying love. In order to function, it needs people who will heroically place themselves at God's disposition, at whatever the cost to themselves, so that God's power can flow through them. Central to the establishment of this kingdom is Christ's own vocation, whose way is the way of obedience to his Father, even under the most extreme ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2016/03/on-palm-sunday-church-celebrates-main.html

IN PRINCIPIO ERAT VERBUM - March 3, 2016 The recent headline regarding the potential of permitting women to preach in the Catholic Church during the Liturgy of the Eucharist raises quite a few eyebrows, if not a few theological considerations. Preaching at the Liturgy of the Word has been reserved to deacons, priests and bishops for almost eight hundred years.
