An Examination of Attitudes

Our pastor gave an interesting sermon on yesterday's Gospel that involved the concept of "thinking about how we think" and how important this can be for our relationships with God and neighbor. It occurred to me today that this concept provides an interesting and fairly straight-forward way of looking at this project we're tackling here during the Year of Faith.

Fr. Robert Barron's Catholicism gives us the opportunity to consider the way we think about the Catholic Faith.

7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess is a wonderful place to examine our attitudes toward our belongings.

The Reed of God has lots of great discussion fodder for considering our relationship with Jesus through the help of His Blessed Mother.

The Anatomy of Peace is a very careful hashing out of the way we think (and don't think!) about our neighbor.


  1. That quote about loving and using people vs things grabbed my attention too the other day when I saw it on Facebook. I love the way you've applied it here.

    I like the way you've broken down the project here into various ways of thinking about how we think. Very helpful.
