The past couple of days I have looked at the most popular and most commented posts of 2010. Both of these reflect what you, the readers, have found most enlightening/uplifting/entertaining about this blog this past year. But now I’d like to select my own ten favorite posts from 2010:
- Is God searching for you? – This post is actually a video I created called “Divine Love” which was based on the “Parisian Love” Google Super Bowl commercial. It chronicles God’s call in a man’s life through his Google searches.
- The Nine Levels of Prayer – Actually a seven-part series, in these posts I delve into the Catholic tradition on the various levels of prayer.
- What if the Gospels were blogs? – I often think about the impact the “New Media” is having on our culture and the way we communicate and even think. So I decided to speculate what it might have been like if Matthew wrote his Gospel as a blog.
- The difference between a TV confession and a sacramental confession – Here I analyzed the difference between the typical modern media confession and sacramental confession.
- And batting first for the Jerusalem Apostles… – I combine my love for early Church history with my love for baseball in this fun post.
- Verbum Domini and the challenge of Catholic Scripture interpretation – One in a series of posts on Verbum Domini, in this post I reflect on the background for understanding the Pope’s very important document on Scripture.
- You might have a big family if… – Once you have more than three children in our culture, you have moved into foreign territory in the eyes of most people. This post has fun with that fact.
- Analysis of the joint Catholic-Orthodox document on the role of the pope in the 1st millennium - In a long post with a long title, I tried to analyze an important, albeit unofficial, document from the joint commission discussing Catholic-Orthodox relations.
- It is necessary to use words – In this post I challenge the misuse of an alleged quote from my favorite saint, St. Francis of Assisi.
- Fifth era of Catholic-Orthodox relations – My deep interest in ecumenical relations with the Orthodox led me to analyze the history between the two Churches over the centuries.
I had a great time writing this blog this year and I hope that it has been enlightening, uplifting and entertaining for all my readers.
May you all have a blessed new year!
