In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit Tradition………Tradition……..Tradition! Because of our traditions we have kept our balance for many years, Here in Anetevka/Burkburnett we have traditions for everything… to eat, how to sleep, even how to wear clothes. For instance, we always keep our heads covered and always wear a little prayer shawl…This shows our constant devotion to God. You may ask how did

All Saints Sunday

The Catholic tradition has a great appreciation of the epistemological nature of the human person. Church thinkers have put a lot of time into the theory of how it is we know. After all, as the old catechism tells us right up front “why did God make you?” “to know him and love him.” This is sort of a 2-way street, we comprehend what we are, and how it is

Have Mercy on Me a Sinner

Today in St. Paul’s 2nd letter to St. Timothy we are looking into the mind of an Apostle who knows the end is quite near for him. “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Wow he could almost be reading from Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics, and in fact he likely knows it pretty well.

The saying is sure: If we have died with him, we will also live with him; if we endure, we will also reign with him; if we deny him, he will also deny us; if we are faithless, he remains faithful–for he cannot deny himself.

He knew that he would not escape punishment this time, and that he was nearing

Fight the Good Fight of the Faith

“Fight the good fight of the faith; take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” From the letter to St. Timothy, As we continue our look at the first letter of St. Paul to St. Timothy, we notice language that is rich with theology, and full of encouragement to the bishop as he ministers among

The Prayer of the Righteous

“First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone…” From the first letter to St. Timothy. This week we continue reading the first letter to St. Timothy, in the second chapter. This bit is a teaching from St. Paul on prayer.
