Easter Sunday (April 20)
8.15 AM and 10.30 AM
 
----
 
Read my Maundy Thursday sermon on John 13 HERE.
 
“Heresy” is a word that gets used a lot in some circles. My hope is to provide some guidance about when not to use it (part of our Lenten discipline!) and when we very much should use it... and when we do, that we mean what we say. In the 5 Sundays of Lent, I will go through the “Top 5” heresies, guiding us to a fuller and better appreciation of the huge events that await us after Lent. - See more at: http://www.peterpaulottawa.com/heresy#sthash.5BIHCwEu.dpuf

"The intellectual snobbery of conspicuous atheism"
by Emma Green
Conspicuous atheism proposes that "because a group of smart, respected, insightful people thought and felt their way out of believing in God, everyone else should, too. Because intellectual history trends toward non-belief, human history must, too. This is problematic for several reasons."
 
"Study Theology, even if you don't believe in God"
by Tara Isabella Burton
... and to study the humanities, here's why you should study the "Queen of the Humanities"? 
 
Review of Benedict XVI, "A reason open to God: On Universities, education and culture"
by Leonard Franchi
"In a society, in a culture, which all too often makes relativism its creed -- relativism has become a sort of dogma -- in such a society the light of truth is missing; indeed, it is considered dangerous and ‘authoritarian’ to speak of truth.”
