Whose Feet Will You Wash?

Holy Thursday | | By Patrick Weston

The Mass is full of order and sanctity. It can almost feel stuffy at times. Having people expose their bare feet and have them washed is the complete opposite of formal. As a result, I absolutely love it.

We, much like Jesus

Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion | | By Zinzy Nev Geene

We, much like Jesus towards the end, are what some would call a security threat. Ripping the fabric of Biblical interpretation simply by being a person. A gateway drug to the end of an era. A little life taking shape against the backdrop of fading commandments.

Whoever Serves Me Must Follow Me

Fifth Sunday of Lent | | By Teresa

Too often we look to a vague, distant future when we talk about the end of marginalization and poverty, the inclusion of all in families and communities, and the installment of ways of living and being based on solidarity and love. The time to bring about this kingdom of God is now.

First Sunday of Lent | | By Jordan Kennedy

Lent is always hard. It’s always a little trickier to really get into then we think, especially this year. The ease we prayed would come in 2021, the respite we so anticipated from the hardship of 2020 has not yet come, at least not for most of us. I am finding Lent particularly hard this year.
