Jesus on occasion woke early and went to a lonely place to pray.

The church has always encouraged Catholics to go aside to reconnect with the Almighty.

In the 21st century, retreat leaders say, it's even more important. Because of digital devices, silence and emptiness are at a premium, even though those are conditions for becoming aware of God's presence. Here is an overview of retreat opportunities in western Oregon.

Archbishop Sample's Column
Toward a theology of the body

In this series of columns containing a catechesis on marriage, before we go on to address the final two “hot button” issues current in our time, we need to discuss something very fundamental to marriage and even to the human person. This is the purpose and meaning of the gift of human sexuality.

More on the question of divorce, remarriage
In continuity with my previous column in this catechetical series on marriage, we are now looking at the sensitive and challenging issues facing people today. We will continue in this installment to examine the issue of divorce and remarriage, and what that means for Catholics who find themselves affected by this reality in their lives. It would be extremely important to review my last column, “But from the beginning it was not so,” in preparation for what follows.

But from the beginning it was not so

In my last column before Easter in this series on marriage, the foundation was laid for why the Church has anything to say at all on these issues of marriage and family life, and why the faithful should rely on this teaching as solidly revealing the truth. The Church, by the will of God himself, teaches with authority and with the mind and heart of Christ himself on matters of faith and morals. This is an authority that the risen Christ gave to the Church through the promised gift of the Holy Spirit.

The Ascension of the Lord (observed)
In today’s Gospel Reading, Mark provides the sort of literary structure with which most of us are familiar. Listening to the commissioning of the apostles, we know what is expected of us. Today’s Gospel becomes the light that illumines the Church in this age.

Pondering the implications of three-parent embryos
We risk trivializing our human procreative faculties and diminishing our offspring by sanctioning these kinds of “eggs-as-Lego-pieces” or “embryos-as-Lego-pieces” approaches. Ultimately there is a steep price to be paid for the ever-expanding project of upending our own beginnings and rupturing the origins of our children.

Fifth Sunday of Easter
Those who are received into the Church at the Easter Vigil are special for me. I like hearing their stories and learning how they were introduced to the Lord. More often than not, they were brought to the Church because they observed a Catholic whose life they admired. In a sense, they come to this community of believers with the recommendation of another. Often, this person is their sponsor.
