The cost of commitment

The recently canonized Henry Newman was born on this date in 1801. Criticized by both liberals and conservatives, he disliked hierarchical triumphalism, but found bedrock truth in Catholicism. In fact, he gave up social support in the Church of England to convert. Because he upheld the laity’s role, the primacy of conscience, and the intellectual life, he’s called a forefather of Vatican II. Today is also the feast of Southwell, a Jesuit and poet who ministered secretly in England when it was forbidden, under the reign of Queen Elizabeth I—and died in 1595 for his faith. Read a bit about both of their lives to learn what integrity means.

TODAY'S READINGS: James 2:14-24, 26; Mark 8:34—9:1 (339). “What could one give in exchange for his life?”

The Irish pastor said, “Everyone who wants to go to Heaven stand up!” and the whole church stood up.  And he said, “And those who want to go to hell, remain standing!” At the back of the church, old Murphy remained standing.   The pastor said, “Murphy, do you want to go to hell?”  Murphy said, “No, Father… I just hate to see you go there all by yourself!”
