This web log is a place to conduct a conversation on the elusive nature or features of listening to and following God’s will. That is, it is concerned with the “how and why” of seeing with Eyes of Faith. Besides the “how and why” it is also about the “what.” What does one see in the world through Eyes of Faith? This component of the weblog is, alas, likely to be the preponderant content for some time. Seeing with eyes of faith is ultimately about viewing the world as a creature of a personal God.
A parishioner asked me to review a new product of National Geographic, written by Jean-Pierre Isbouts, who is an historian of the times of Jesus. The work is called "The Story of Christianity - A Chronicle of Christian Civilization from Ancient Rome to Today"
VATICAN CITY, 29 May 2015 (VIS) - Pope Francis' universal prayer intention for June is: "That immigrants and refugees may find welcome and respect in the countries to which they come".
His intention for evangelization is: "That the personal encounter with Jesus may arouse in many young people the desire to offer their own lives in priesthood or consecrated life".

You think, I dare say, that our chief job is inventing new words. But not a bit of it! We’re destroying words — scores of them, hundreds of them, every day. We’re cutting the language down to the bone. ... Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it.
