Whoops?!?

Chirst the King

This Sunday is the Feast of Christ the King . . . if you were to find yourself at the Pearly Gates and St. Peter asked: "Why should I let you in?" – what would be your answer?

“I believe in God, never hurt anybody - everyone knows I am good person!”

 This Sunday’s gospel hints that people who answer this way may be in for an unpleasant surprise.   Come to The Crossroads Initiative to make sure you are not one of them!

Advent - Prepare the Way

The Feast of Christ the king means we have a mere week before the Advent wreathe comes out of the attic.  Let’s take this last week of Ordinary Time to think about how to make this Advent more than just the “shopping days before Christmas!”

Come to The Crossroads Initiative and check out all the incredible resources we have assembled in our Library for your family, study group, or religious education class, to make this your best Advent and Christmas season ever!  Many of them are available for download and printing to share with your friends and family over Thanksgiving!


Prepare the way -

Christmas 2014We want to keep the THANKS in the giving and the CHRIST in the Christmas, but often the gifts we give are all about the latest gadgets and gizmos, and fail to reflect the Reason for the Season.

So this year, let’s do a pre-emptive strike on Black Friday madness and get early gifts online that bring those we love closer to the Savior whose birth we celebrate!  Then maybe you can settle down into Advent . . . and not let this great season morph into the “shopping days before Christmas.”

 Ear of the Heart

Ear of the Heart
"Listen and attend with the ear of your heart." - Saint Benedict.
Dolores Hart stunned Hollywood in 1963, when after ten highly successful feature films, she chose to enter a contemplative monastery. Now, fifty years later, Mother Dolores gives this fascinating account of her life. Dolores was a bright and beautiful college student when she made her film debut with Elvis Presley in Paramount's 1957 Loving You. She acted in nine more movies with other big stars such as Montgomery Clift, Anthony Quinn and Myrna Loy. She also gave a Tony-nominated performance in the Broadway play The Pleasure of His Company and appeared in television shows, including The Virginian and Playhouse 90. An important chapter in her life occurred while playing Saint Clare in the movie Francis of Assisi, which was filmed on location in Italy.
She entered the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Connecticut, at the peak of her career, not in order to leave the glamorous world of acting she had dreamed of since childhood, but in order to answer a mysterious call she heard with the "ear of the heart". She abandoned everything to become a bride of Christ.

 Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth

Exploring Advent with Luke: Four Questions for Spiritual Growth
This creative exploration of Advent guides readers to rediscover the power of the events leading up to the birth of Christ. The four questions of Luke 1, as posed by Zechariah, Mary, Elizabeth, and the people in the Temple, spur readers to personal reflection on disappointment, inadequacy, openness, and trust.
In this fresh, new contemplative Advent companion, Timothy Clayton deftly shows how Luke composed this first chapter of his gospel to deepen understanding of the birth of Jesus and how meditation on the questions posed by its main characters can help resolve issues that hinder the joy of Christmas. Designed to be used on a weekly basis through Advent and during the Twelve Days of Christmas, this reflective guide is ideal for individual and small-group use. Clayton's insight is reminiscent of Henri Nouwen or Thomas Merton and brings the story of Christ's birth to life anew.
