Today on Kresta - October 7, 2010

Talking about the "things that matter most" on Oct. 7

4:00 – Adventures in Daily Prayer: Experiencing the Power of God's Love
For the past forty-five years, beloved author Bert Ghezzi has begun each day with prayer. At first he had to work at doing it consistently, but eventually he couldn't imagine starting his day without it. Through his discovery of the gift of daily prayer, he came to see God's connection with us as a bountiful and permanent act of love. In this delightful book Ghezzi shares his adventures in prayer, offering readers a winsome invitation to experience the promise and power of this faithful daily practice. For those who have struggled at cultivating a strong prayer life, he provides practical help for overcoming obstacles. He also covers how to pray, praying for and with others, and persevering in prayer. The book includes questions for further reflection and group discussion at the end of each chapter.

4:40 – Female Without Apology / Marriage Without Adjectives
Dr Jennifer Roback Morse will be speaking at a women’s conference in Kalamazoo, MI speaking about being female without apology and married without adjectives. She will discuss the essential public purpose of marriage and four key points same-sex marriage will undermine. She is here to offer a preview and encourage you to attend.

5:00 – Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary
With today’s feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, we turn our attention to the Blessed Mother and the power of the rosary. Fr. Dwight Longenecker is here to help us discover the parallels between our lives and the Mysteries of the Rosary while experiencing the healing graces of Our Lady. Where our lives are characterized by trauma, stress, pain, or sadness, this ancient contemplative prayer can bring acceptance, understanding, and joy.

5:20 – Who Is Jesus Christ? Unlocking the Mystery in the Gospel of Matthew
Christ's contemporaries ascribed many names and titles to Him, as we see recorded in the New Testament. Each one tells us something different about who Jesus is. Eric Sammons joins us to frame a series of thoughtful reflections on the names of Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew with references from the Church Fathers, saints, and Doctors of the Church. He translates the depth of the mystery of the Faith so we can discover new dimensions of the person of Christ and new ways to recognize and welcome Him into our lives.

  1. There was discussion on today's program regarding the term 'Son of Man' as Jesus most often referred to himself. Is it possible this expression is better translated as the Son of Humanity or the Human. Jesus is referring to himself as the human Incarnation of the Word of God. We were all made in the image and likeness of God. I think of the human nature of our Lord Jesus as 'The Human'. Meaning - He is, so to speak, the 'Gold Standard' of humanity and we are all modeled from that perfect standard. It makes better sense to me when I think of Jesus referring to himself as 'The Human' rather than just plain, 'a human'. "Son of Man" loses meaning in the translation from his spoken Aramaic. Jesus our Lord, who is the human nature of I AM (and the divine nature of I AM) , who is the incarnation of the Word, is 'The Human' which might be the real way Jesus referred to himself most often. I feel 'The Human' (with the word 'the' in use)is a better translation than the expression, 'Son of Man.' I am not into making up my own dogma, I do not know if what i am saying is true, I am merely offering a few thoughts where I am unaware of any church teaching. These are just thoughts, not beliefs.
