Dissatisfied with certain aspects of your parish? From the blog Standing on My Head, Fr. Dwight Longenecker once again summarizes things so much more eloquently than I could with his posting on "Learning from the Liturgy."
From Christianity Today comes the article written by Nathan Bierma entitled The Shape of Faith: The Sign of the Cross is a reminder of Whose we are. It's a long article, but worth it:
After reading these two books, this previously ignorant Protestant, for one, has decided to introduce the sign of the cross into his daily prayer, as a link with the early church, a sign of God's claim on me, and a reminder of the mystery of the Trinity.
