If Fr. Z requests...

Voting for the 2010 CINO Awards is underway here.

Serviam made the choice pretty hard.

  • Nancy Pelosi
  • Doug Kmeic
  • Joe Biden
  • National Catholic Reporter
  • America Magazine

For those unaware, CINO = Catholic In Name Only.

As Peter Kreeft says, "There are lots of Kennedy Catholics and not many Catholic Kennedys."

Written by the founder of the Society of Jesus, the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is a powerful book. Derived
mostly from St. Ignatius' conversion experiences in 1521-3, Spiritual Exercises has provided guidance and encouragement to its readers for several hundred years. The aim of Spiritual Exercises is to assist people in finding God's will for their life, and to give them the motivation and courage to follow that will. It is not a continuous piece of writing, but more like a program of sorts, containing a collection of thoughts, rules, encouragements, readings, meditations, prayers, warnings, and notes. Nevertheless the condensed writing is organized into four "weeks," or periods of time, with each week focusing upon a different theme--the first, human sin; the second, Christ's life on earth; the third, Christ's death on the cross; the fourth, Christ's risen life. A key theme throughout the Spiritual Exercises is discernment--the need to discern between good desires and evil desires in one's life. It is by following the four weeks, and by utilizing such discernment, that a person can better realize God's will for his or her own life. Although more profitably worked through with another person or spiritual director, Spiritual Exercises can be extremely beneficial for private personal study.

UPDATE: I'm having trouble fixing the links. The original page can be found here.

There are a few weeks left in the year, true, but I'm still calling it. The Best New Podcast of 2010 for Catholic types is....

*drum roll*

...Catholic Stuff You Should Know.

Run by a couple of Colorado seminarians, this podcast is funny, humble, pius and informative. Plus, the last one had a surprise e-mail by Archbishop Chaput!

So go, listen and enjoy learning Catholic stuff you should know.

P.S. - I recommend starting with the one about Stylites. Crazy, man. Crazy.
