They cannot, however, be understood without some knowledge of the faith which passed so entirely into their life that in its growth it lost some of its own infant traits and took on others, rooted, no doubt, in the beginnings in India, but expanded and changed as the features of the child may be forgotten in the face of the man and yet perpetuate the unbroken succession of heredity. Whatever centuries may pass or the future hold in store for her, Japan can never lose the stamp of Buddhism in her outer or her spiritual life.< Less

More > exhorting husbands to “love their wives as Christ loved the Church”. Now there are all kinds of arguments as to the different types of love such as phileo which is brotherly, eros which is erotic, agape which is godly, and storge which is devotional. I don’t want to beat that horse on this one. I am not trying to give a long discourse on what love actually means, I simply want to explore what love really is and how it can be practical to the Christian life at all times and at all levels. As with other writings that I have this book is a journey that I want to take the readers on with me as I look to define in a clear way “Love”.< Less

Thus, she writes of the Gods (Neteru) with both scholarly background and personal experience.

More > Rosary devotion. According to tradition, the occasion was the Albigensian heresy which ravaged Christendom, particularly in southern France during the latter part of the 12th and the beginning of the 13th centuries. St. Dominic was distressed at his lack of success in his preaching in countering this heresy, and in his desperation turned to the Mother of God for help. She appeared to him (according to the tradition) and told him to use her Psalter in conjunction with his preaching of the mysteries of our salvation, as an instrument in combatting the great heresy of his day. We do not have any historical documents dating from that period expressly referring to St. Dominic and the Rosary. We will endeavor to show, however, that there are a number of things that could be responsible for that silence.< Less
