Bearing Witness to the Truth

My latest post is up at New Evangelizers, the fourth in a short series of meditations on the rosary in light of 40 Days for Life. In Bearing Witness to the Truth, I consider Jesus' words:
“Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I have come into the world, to bear witness to the truth.'” (Jn 18:3)
It’s rare, if ever, that one can make another person see the truth, yet we are called to make the truth visible to those who would seek it.

Take Up Your Cross, Parents

At New Evangelizers, I'm continuing a short series of meditations on the rosary in light of 40 Days for Life. In Remain Here, and Watch with Me, I consider Jesus' words:
“If any man would come after me, let him deny himself. And take up his cross daily and follow me.” (Lk 9:23)
It’s a difficult reality that Christmas leads to Good Friday. The joyful birth leads to the sorrow of the cross, and we all have our crosses to bear. But it’s easy to forget that Good Friday, likewise, leads on to Easter Sunday, and that is, ultimately, why we're called to carry them.
