by Kathleen Glavich, SND on July 20, 2016

in Blogs

Human trafficking is one of the largest businesses in the world. People unscrupulously make money from enslaving others, even young children, and selling them for sex. According to the U.S. State Department’s annual report, in 2015 there were 6609 convictions for human trafficking and an estimated 20 million victims. How long will God tolerate this […]

What’s in a Name?

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on July 13, 2016

in Blogs

Names are important because they stand for who we are. It’s said that hearing someone say our name is the sweetest sound to us. And how embarrassing when we forget someone’s name or misspell it! Sometimes children hurt each other by making fun of their names. People have their loved one’s names tattooed on them. […]

Just Who Are the Laborers?

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on July 6, 2016

in Blogs

Jesus’ exhortation in Sunday’s Gospel “ask the Master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest” usually is interpreted to mean pray for more priests, deacons, and women and men religious. But look at the context of his words. Jesus is sending out seventy-two disciples. None of these followers are priests or consecrated […]

Pray Always and Pray All Ways

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on June 29, 2016

in Blogs

At first glance St. Paul’s exhortation to pray always (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18) seems to be a mistranslation. Maybe what he really said was, “Pray a lot.” Praying ALWAYS is a mental impossibility. When I’m writing a book, for instance, my mind is 100% focused on the ideas I’m typing, not on God. The only way […]

Perseverance Pays Off!

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on June 22, 2016

in Blogs

Lately I’ve been receiving lessons on perseverance. The most dramatic one was the incredible victory of the Cleveland Cavaliers with odds against them. After a 52-year drought, they clinched the NBA championship to the delight of their many diehard fans. Closer to home, I could not get the DVD player to work with the new […]

The Bible: You’ve Got Mail, Part 2

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on June 15, 2016

in Blogs

Here is an excerpt from Chapter 2 of my latest book, Praying with Scripture. Come to the Bible, not to study the history of God’s action, but to be its object; not to learn what it achieves throughout the centuries and still does, but to be the subject of its operation. ~ Jean-Pierre de Caussade, […]

Why Silence Is Golden

by Kathleen Glavich, SND on May 25, 2016

in Blogs

As I was working on a book about teaching prayer, it occurred to me that the chapter on silence would make a good blog. So here it is with a few adaptations . . .  All of us have memories stashed away that bear out the truth of the saying “silence is golden.” Maybe you […]

Belief in God as One in Three, a Mystery

May 18, 2016

Yesterday on “Jeopardy” the contestants were asked the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, also the name of two churches in England. No one could answer. This is rather surprising since the Trinity is the foundation of Christian faith. This Sunday we will celebrate the only feast in honor of God: the feast […]
