  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

Faith Formation: Partnerships to Promote Faith

Sharing a few personal thoughts…

I think we need to do more with partnerships, as with the suppliers of catechetical materials but also with trusted Catholic organizations, like the Knights of Columbus. The Catholic Information Service offers wonderful booklets on the faith that could be stocked in the pamphlet racks of parishes. The incentive for the Knights would be that new and more “practical” Catholics would also constitute potential new members for their order.

A new effort for youth that shows great promise is available at https://outsidedabox.com. Their videos are short but pointed and entertaining. Given the short attention spans of youth today, it may be a way to insert the Christian message into their lives. Videos are available on YouTube.
