Fr. Rodney Kissinger, S.J. has been a Jesuit for over 74 years and a priest for over 63 years. His seasoned spirituality is the fruit of more than 60 years of making and giving the Spiritual Exercises in all of its formats to priests, religious and laity. It is presented not in the jargon of academia but in a language that everyone can understand. He is neither “old breed” nor “new breed,” he is just “half breed.” Having studied both the old theology and the new theology he is convinced that the continuity is so great that you cannot understand the new until you have mastered the old.

 

This week's featured reading is Fr. Rodney's homily, The Gospel Truth

The Church had its origin in the EXISTENTIAL Gospel, the actual life, death and resurrection of Jesus and descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Pentecost is the birthday of the Church. (1-30)

The Church is the author and compiler of the WRITTEN Gospel, the New Testament. (51- 100) Under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, which it received at Pentecost, the Church authored the New Testament.

“The proclamation of the Gospel is the reason for and the mission of the Church.” Pope Benedict XVI

COMMISSION OF JESUS “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Matt. 28: 19 – 20)

All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me

"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God…and the Word was made flesh and dwelt amongst us and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son full of grace and truth.” John 1: 1-14) “For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.” (Jo. 3:16) “This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased listen to him.” (Matt. 17:5)

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations

“Come follow me.” “I will make you fishers of men.”

“It was at Antioch that the disciples were first called Christian.”

baptizing them in the name of the Father and Son and Holy Spirit

We are all born simply as human beings with the dignity and responsibility of being human.
