Ten Thousand Places: Where the Rubber Meets the Road, Gospel-Wise

Fr. Denis may have stolen my tag line to use in his most recent post, but I'm flattered that he expresses so well its intent. As always, his writings on 'Ten Thousand Places' is well worth the read. Click on the link below to check out this latest offering from a very wise man from Madonna House.

Ten Thousand Places: Where the Rubber Meets the Road, Gospel-Wise


  1. Oh, all right, I gave you a link now! Blessings to ya.

  2. From my own perspective I see far more confusion and chaos inside the Catholic Church than what exists outside. The insurmountable problem with any group ( such as 'we' the Catholic church or folks at Madonna House) that closes in on itself is the need to protect the established order at all cost which ironically ( given the theme in the above reflection) leads to a judgmental attitude toward anyone outside or even individuals inside who question some of the 'moral laws', interpretations or traditional values. Anything an individual has to say that contradicts the groups idea of what is " right" has no value, is rejected and not tolerated because it is perceived as a threat to disturb the established order. There is no need whatsoever for a capacity to reason in such a place. The need for certitude in such a milieu increases as the fear of 'confusion' and 'chaos' increase.
    It doesn't seem to me to be a system that can sustain itself much longer and there is a great deal of evidence to indicate that it actually is falling apart.
    That might not be the truth, but it's my truth.
