rediscover the adventure of faith

our mission

God regularly gives unique moments of grace and calls us to Himself. That is an invitation for the Church to continually rediscover the hidden treasure of our Catholic faith, rekindle a passionate love for it, and allow it to renew our lives.

reCatholic is a response to God’s personal call for us by creating resources for groups and individuals that inspire and challenge Catholics to rediscover, rekindle, and renew their faith so it becomes a life-changing adventure and the greatest source of fulfillment.

A Rushing Wind

A Novena With the Holy Spirit

A Rushing Wind is a novena steeped in Scripture, the saints, and the teaching of the Church, and is designed to rekindle our love for the Holy Spirit and let Him renew our lives.

Join us in praying this novena starting on May 10th and culminating on Pentecost!

rediscover

The faith is an inexhaustible treasure. We must allow ourselves to be struck again with awe as we experience its beauty, wonder, and richness.

rekindle

Moments of deep encounter with God spark the flame of a passionate love.  We need to make a place in our hearts for His transforming presence.

renew

Living faith can radically transform us and change our lives. We embrace the challenge and adventure of a life with purpose and meaning.

See, I am doing something new! Now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? In the desert I make a way, in the wasteland, rivers … for I put water in the desert and rivers in the wasteland for my chosen people to drink.

Reflections on Renewal

Big and Little Discernment – Part 1

Big and Little Discernment – Part 1

The goal of discernment is to be able to distinguish God’s will from our own desires or temptations. We do this in order to make choices and live in union with God’s will.

Catholic Culture

Catholic Culture

The personal conversion of individuals deeply influenced Western civilization’s moral and spiritual fabric. It is this transformation that comes through a personal encounter with Jesus Chris which we need to rediscover in today’s secular world.

The Gospel and a Theology of Kitsch

The Gospel and a Theology of Kitsch

Few people have been presented with the fullness of the Gospel. All they know is a tame, domesticated version. The Jesus they know is not demanding or incompatible with their already established hierarchy of values.

The Grinch, Communists, and Baby Jesus

The Grinch, Communists, and Baby Jesus

Every year I turn into the Grinch. “I must stop Christmas from coming…” till the 25th anyway. Advent has been entirely pushed out by holiday celebrations that start even before Thanksgiving leftovers can be put away.

Wandering & Intentional Holiness

Wandering & Intentional Holiness

Taking responsibility for our life and living intentionally is a tremendous challenge, but it’s the only thing that makes life worth living and embracing that responsibility is the necessary first step to holiness.

Finally Home – Parish Renewal

Finally Home – Parish Renewal

St. John Paul II describes the parish as “the family of God, a … welcoming home.” Do these words have any meaning today? Is the average parish an experience of home? And what does it mean to be a “home” at all?

Radical Holiness – Personal Renewal

Radical Holiness – Personal Renewal

It’s easy to interpret “radical holiness” as something strange and extreme, but nothing is further from the truth. Holiness is “radical” because it touches the deepest parts of who we are.

Hidden Treasures – Seeing Like Christ

Hidden Treasures – Seeing Like Christ

Lessons from a priest who restores brass items from churches around town. “People look and only see the tarnished, but I see what they can be. To me, they are beautiful already.”
