NCR Today: Last night's "Chicago Med" offered a bit of what I like to call "canine theology."
Faith & Parish
The Field Hospital: Billboards urging confession; Pittsburgh closures; Rochester parish counts prayer hours; fish fry tradition roots; mass mob descends again on Detroit church.
Celebration Publications: This May, preachers are invited to preach on four sets of scripture readings pertaining to the person of Jesus -- both the historical and risen Jesus.
Religious leaders gathered in prayer to mark the one-year anniversary of riots that spread through Baltimore after the death of a man injured while in police custody.
The Field Hospital: Parish collaboration in California; being present with the homeless; increase in Catholic involvement with Habitat for Humanity.
The religious freedom campaign of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops took on a new urgency, wrapped in ominous tones and a foreboding script, in a newly released video.
Young Voices: This is Easter joy -- a little confusion, a little courage, caught by surprise, but feeling quite deeply the presence of the spirit in these relationships.
The Field Hospital: "The prudence needed to be an effective priest cannot be taught, it can only be earned through actual life experience."
The Peace Pulpit: "That's what you, now being confirmed, are committing yourself to be -- a witness to Jesus."
Simply Spirit: Gifted women are serving the church in diverse and ecclesial ministries, but their work often goes unseen. Opening the diaconate to women would change that.
