Overview


Father Michael Himes offers a collection of interesting and provocative reflections on ten major Catholic topics and invites us to consider them from a new perspective.

  • Trinity: The Trinity is not one just doctrine among many; we believe in everything in terms of the Trinity.
  • Grace: When we look for God’s loving presence in all things, we acknowledge that all of creation is sacred.
  • Incarnation: The Incarnation is the highest compliment ever paid to humanity. God has chosen to become like us and, in doing so, invites us to become fully human.
  • Salvation: Salvation is the story of God entering the world to reaffirm the first judgment: We are good.
  • Church: The Church brings us together, and in coming together we discover what it means to love God.
  • Baptism: Our being baptized is never finished until we have been fully and completely raised with Christ.
  • Eucharist: The Eucharist both makes us who we are and reveals to us where we are going.
  • Sacraments of Vocation: Matrimony and Holy Orders can each be a rich source of joy, a meaningful use of talents and a way to give oneself away to others.
  • Reconciliation: Reconciliation is not about how wicked I am but a celebration of how good God is.
  • Tradition: The only way we can truly live the faith is by developing it, passing it on and allowing it to grow.
