Rhyming Lives: How to Be Jesus' Disciple (2004)

Oct. 9 issue column: Mary is Jesus’ greatest disciple. She shows us not what Jesus would do, but what a disciple of Jesus would do. Her life is not identical to Jesus’ life, but, rather, rhymes with Jesus’ life. Jesus calls us to follow him; Mary shows us what following him looks like. So do the saints.

Jesus calls us to rhyme our lives with his, just as the New Covenant rhymes with the Old.

In past years, the WWJD (“What Would Jesus Do?”) phrase has become popular in some circles. It’s well intended and, to be sure, sometimes we are indeed to do what Jesus would do. So, for instance, when somebody sins against us, we must forgive them as Jesus would. When somebody is hurting, we must comfort them as Jesus would. When somebody is hungry, we must feed them as Jesus would.

But we must also remember that we are not Jesus. We are his disciples. We are to be like Jesus. We cannot be Jesus, and, therefore, we cannot always do what Jesus does.

The Miracle of the Sun 94 Years Later (5541)

Father Andrew Apostoli says Our Lady of Fatima's message is needed more than ever in increasingly secular society.

10/13/2011 Comments (12)

NEW YORK CITY (EWTN News)—The author of an exhaustive study on the Virgin Mary’s 1917 appearances in Portugal says her words are being fulfilled by the rise of aggressive secularism and loss of religious freedom in the West.

“Mary, as I see it, pointed out at Fatima that these things were going to happen,” said Father Andrew Apostoli, a Franciscan Friar of the Renewal and the author of Fatima for Today (Ignatius Press, $19.95), in an interview one day before the 94th anniversary of the last apparition in the Portuguese city.

“She said that an evil will begin in Russia and will spread its errors around the world,” Father Apostoli noted, recalling Mary’s words in 1917.

Father Edward Danylo Evanko was ordained a priest of the Ukrainian Catholic Church in 2005 after a 40-year career as a supporting actor on Broadway, television and film in the U.S. and Canada.

Shortly after ordination, he started performing one-man plays, first Damien, about the recently-canonized “leper priest,” by Aldyth Morris, and then two of his own creation, Holodomor: Murder by Starvation, about the Ukrainian famine of 1932-33, and Blessed Nykyta, about Canada’s first Ukrainian Catholic bishop who was murdered by Josef Stalin. Father Evanko has performed these plays in the United States, Canada and Europe.

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Pope Benedict XVI reminded Christians Oct. 12 to thank God for the good things in life, instead of only bringing problems to him.

“Dear brothers and sisters, in our prayers, we should look at how often, in the events of our lives, the Lord has protected us, guided us, helped us,” the Pope said at his general audience in St. Peter’s Square.

He encouraged Christians to “be more attentive to the good things that the Lord gives us. We are always attentive to the problems, difficulties and almost do not want to see that there are good things come from the Lord.”

In his latest discourse on prayer, Pope Benedict dwelt on Psalm 126. It charts the joy of the Jewish...READ MORE
