Commentary: When religious leaders equate religion's ancient mythologies with demonstrable facts, faith will suffer, and religion will become increasingly irrelevant.
Although I am a male religious, I too have focused on "conscious evolution." The more I investigate its premises, the more I find it helpful.
Essay: As we approach Easter, I think the time is ripe to reclaim the earliest articulation of an experience of the Resurrection: that which is noted by Paul.
In early June, Bishop Leonard Blair of Toledo, Ohio, posted a video on the Toledo diocesan website quoting me. He also wrote virtually the same comments in his June 8 Bishop's Corner column in the Catholic Chronicle, the diocesan newspaper. The video went viral and his print comments were reported in diocesan papers throughout the country, including my own Archdiocese of Milwaukee. However, after extended reflection, given the widespread but unilateral way his references have been disseminated, I came to believe I needed to respond.
