Fr. Rodney Kissinger, S.J. has been a Jesuit for over 71 years and a priest for over 60 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 from Fr. Rodney's Booklet The Church Changing and Changeless, Last Chapter - "Nohing is he Same Anymore"

“Nothing is the same anymore.” This is the complaint of those who think that the Church has changed too much. It would be a tragedy if that were true. But it is not true. The Church is changing and changeless. All of the essentials are still in place. To reassure them and ourselves let us take a quick inventory of what is left. We still have the:

TRINITY: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit haven’t changed. Jesus is the same and the Holy Spirit today gets more attention than the Holy Ghost ever got;

HIERARCHY: We still have a Pope, Bishops, Cardinals, Priests, Deacons, (both permanent and transient) and we have Religious Brothers and Sisters and the Laity;

BIBLE which is understood and read more by Catholics than ever before. The Church is still the official interpreter of it;

CREEDS, we have both the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed which give us all of the essential truths of Christianity. Not one single word has been changed;

WRITINGS OF THE FATHERS OF THE CHURCH, those early Christian writers, who expressed clearly the belief and practice of the early Church, and we still have the Catechism of the Catholic Church;

SEVEN SACRAMENTS, the NAME of two of them may have been changed but the RITE of Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Marriage and Holy Orders are still the same; CLICK HERE for the entire chapter.

Fr. Rodney has spent most of his priestly life giving the Spiritual Exercises, as a preached retreat, a guided retreat, the personally directed retreat, the 19th annotation retreat and the email retreat. The Joy of the Spiritual Exercises is the fruit of these retreats condensed into a single EBook. As Fr. Rodney states, "Pope Francis exhorts us to proclaim “The Joy of the Gospel.” The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is a proclamation of the joy of the Gospel."
