KAIROS



There are very few people who realise what God would make of them if they abandoned themselves into His hands, and let themselves be formed by His grace. St Ignatius Loyola

I have recently come to the realization......that I am something of a crypto-Jansenist, or at least that I have strongly Jansenist tendencies. Too long in the camp of those who unthinkingly wander down the aisle at Communion, without regard for worthiness or the probability of sacrilege in the unprepared heart, I found myself committing an equal and opposite sin or sacrilege: refraining too

Some good things mentioned in the comments below. Let me now ask a couple of highly specific music questions:I like chant, and I agree with the idea that chant is supposed to be given primacy of place. But chant is not something most kids intuitively respond to, especially given that they've been exposed to very little of it, if any at all, in their lives. Does anyone have any specific experience

What I am looking for these days...(Youth, Ministry and Music)Amy Welborn touches on this once in a while, but I'd hope to start a serious discussion about it. My new life makes these questions of really significant professional, as well as personal and spiritual.Many, many readers and members of St. Blog's seem to agree that catechesis of the young is in appalling shape nationally, even if there

As soon as I can figure out Blogger's comments, commenting will be up and running.And for anyone who was wondering what I was depreseed about in the 3 year old post a few entries down, think back to Pedro Martinez, Grady Little, and Aaron Frickin' Boone. I'm still not really over it, in spite of the passage of time, and the results a year later.

Yeah, about that whole "never posting at blogger again" thing...I'm actually not sure how much, if at all, I will be blogging again. I have a new job that doesn't ban me from blogging, but does require in me even more prudence in what I say than I have had to observe in the past. But I think I'm going to give it a try.The version of Kairos that appeared at the St. Blog's grouping is completely

I have officially moved to the new home of Kairos. Nothing that happens here will have anything to do with anything anymore. Buh bye blogger. I appreciate your freeness, but it's time to go someplace more sophisticated.

I recently finished "War in Heaven" by Charles Williams, the least known of "The Inklings." I enjoyed it, but I confess that I find the heroes of his novels too passive. In this one, the Archdeacon is obviously a holy and good man, but he seems to have a kind of stupefied "since I can't do anything without Christ, I can do whatever with him," that seems to me reliant less on God than on deus ex

I'm wondering about the form of prayers. My most typical style of prayer is to form an intention, then recite a rote prayer, offered up as it were on behalf of that intention. Now, formerly I would get very specific about the intention, forming actual words describing precisely what intercession is necessary, and sometimes carrying on a lengthy exposition. Presently, I usually manage to imagine

Boston.com / Sports / Baseball / Red Sox / Down, of course, but never out "'This is exactly the kind of game we've won all year,' said starting pitcher John Burkett, with an air of self deprecation. 'John Burkett goes out, gives up the lead, and his guys come back to win it. I don't think we ever anticipate these things happening, but when you come feeling all bummed out, like I did, you can see

My blog will be much more boring without Kathy the Carmelite in the comments boxes, but it sounds like a pretty good deal for her.

Queen raises fears over EU constitution A dark shadow is falling once again across Europe, not this time the spectre of communism or fascism, but an ideology even emptier. For centuries, France and Germany have vied for control of the continent, and the quantities of blood shed in that contest made Europe the worst killing grounds in all the world. Now the relatively peaceful aberration of the

My recent efforts to find shoes reminds me of a commonplace, but one worth recalling once in a while. Things are worthwhile in themselves only to the extent that they help and do not hinder our Salvation. Thus, wine, for instance, is a good thing insofar as the pleasure it gives increases the joy in our lives, and bad insofar as it becomes not a means to joy, but an end itself. So it is with

The Spy Next Door (washingtonpost.com) "The Spy Next Door Valerie Wilson, Ideal Mom, Was Also the Ideal Cover " No matter what you think about women and mothers having careers (and, as you might have noticed from my stay-at-homeness, I'm fine with it), being an undercover CIA agent, using your parenthood as a cover, disqualifies you from being considered an "ideal mom." Anything that uses the

What I love in this article is the phrase "Despite his lack of formal schooling" as though 1) homeschooling is a blow-off, and 2) It's typical of public school kids to do write best-selling novels at age 15 (registration required to read the article).

For Ailing Pope, Many Projects Remain Unfinished (washingtonpost.com) This is an interesting article, but there are more than a few questionable points raised: "...his focus on the cult of the Virgin Mary..." ("Cult"??) "...the pope has found his preaching for peace largely eclipsed by events, especially the United States' war on terror..." (Umm, hte Holy Father actually acknowledged the US'

Brilliant Fox Sports Insight During tonight's ALDS game: Color Guy: When you get to the playoffs, it's a whole new ballgame! Play by Play Guy: You got that right! One of the best ALDS games in recent years, and this is the best Fox Sports can come up with? Jerry Remy and Curt Gowdy were unavailable? My goodness, Dick Vitale would have done a better job.

A student just pointed out something I hadn't considered. In the possible but improbable event of a Cubs-Red Sox world Series, one of them absolutely has to win.
