I know it’s Lent, but man, there were a lot of things to celebrate this week.
Baseball is Back!
Let’s start right off with baseball. MLB and the MLBPA accepted terms on a new collective bargaining agreement, ending the 99 day lockout and saving our trip this summer. It’s with that joy that I can share the list of events we’ll be hosting this summer. There are still more to come, but this is what we have at the moment.
Time of Confession
For many, Lent is anything but a time of celebration, but it really is if you think about it. How wonderful it is that God allows us to do penance, that he forgives us of our sins! The sacrament of penance isn’t supposed to be endured, it’s celebrated! This week, Fr. Patrick and I discuss the good, the bad, and the ridiculous images of confession in media.
Finding Hope in Affliction, New Book
What do we do with poverty? Hunger? Persecution? Violence? For many, these are things to be avoided because they mark a tragic, downtrodden life. And yet, Jesus is very clear that those who experience these things will have future glory. What do we make of the Beatitudes, and how can they help us right now? That’s the topic of my new book, releasing April 6. You can enter to win a free copy by clicking here.
Superheroes Among Us
What if Superman grew up just an ordinary guy and slowly learned throughout his life that he was “super”? In a way, that’s what Unbreakable is about, and it might very well be the best comic book movie ever made.
Off to LA!
Hope everyone has a great week! If you’re attending Los Angeles Religious Education Congress next week, look for me among the masses!
Peace and good,
