Good Friday in Sugar Land

Our parish community in Sugar Land, TX, always does the Triduum very well. Our liturgy for Holy Thursday last night was standing room only and went over two hours in duration. Tonight's mystery of the Lord's Passion promises to be even longer, with confession lines out the door. I wish you all a blessed Triduum!

Ancient Heresies and their Modern Forms

Online talk from the Dominican Province of St. Joseph:
On February 6th, Fr. Austin Litke, O.P. gave a Theology on Tap lecture in Alexandria, VA entitled “Ancient Heresies and Their Modern Forms.” In his talk, Fr. Austin examined the different ancient heresies of Gnosticism, Arianism, and Pelagianism. He then compared them to the modern world by examining the Church of Scientology, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the tendency of some modern American Catholics to live as if they have control of their own salvation. He explained the foundational principle that discussions of heresy are not simply about condemning others. Rather, they are for the purpose of healing those who have fallen into error. Given that, Fr. Litke concluded his talk with a proposed remedy for healing these modern problems.
