• Our Blogger

    Fr. Joseph Jenkins

  • 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: Use of the Archdiocesan Webpage

Sharing a few personal thoughts…

The archdiocesan webpage could become more varied and interactive. The day has long passed from when stagnant or passive pages were enough. Videos and audio talks could be stored as files for people to download. With appropriate permission, local talks or lectures could be archived. Important Masses, religious devotions and other celebrations could be covered and presented as video files. Some of this could become the media extension of The Catholic Standard as we shift away from the “paper” format. Youth pages with games and animation for children could be added. We might also include a QUESTION BOX section to the archdiocesan site where both Catholics and non-Catholics could ask questions. This dialogue could be archived for others with similar concerns. Queries could be separated under various headings, for instance just as Msgr. Peter J. Vaghi delineated in his four books:

(1) The Faith We Profess;

(2) The Sacraments We Celebrate;

(3) The Commandments We Keep; and

(4) The Prayer We Offer.
