A New Office and Special Message!

LOVE the Word™ is a Bible study method based on Mary’s own practice: lectio without the Latin.

Welcome Patricia and Joni, Bible Study Evangelista’s newest friends of the show! Thank you for loving and lifting me :)


Weekly LOVE the Word™ exercises are offered according to FIAT: the four personalities, or “prayer forms,” explored in Prayer and Temperament, by Chester Michael and Marie Norrisey: Franciscan, Ignatian, Augustinian, and Thomistic: FIAT! These prayer forms correspond to the Myers-Briggs personality types.

  1. Wonderful to see you in your new office! Good to know you have a dedicated space for all parts of your work. Thank you for your love for all you have been given, including all your listeners.

  2. Love the video explaining how all of this works together. This succinctly orders all the elements of your studies. Thanks for leading so many. We continue to keep you and your ministry in prayer.

  3. I sang in my church choir (Roman Catholic) last night for the Good Friday service. This year I noticed something different. In the General intersessions there were prayers for the Jewish people which seemed to imply that: one, there is this metaphysical category of jewishness that exists apart from self identification; two, that the covenant in old testament applies to these people who have in effect a separate “deal and don”t necessarily need Christ. This prayer was followed by a prayer “for those who believe in God but not in Christ a prayer I can wholeheartedly believe in. I wondered why the prayer for the Jewish people was even necessary given that such people would fall under the later prayer going by numbers isn”t Judaism a minor world religion? I suppose that the prayer in its traditional form was deemed antisemitic, and was altered to fit the “spirit of the times.

    1. I actually noticed the one just before the prayer for the Jewish people, the prayer for the unity of Christians. I was struck by it enough to swipe a missal from the church since I lost my Holy Week Magnificat.
      Here’s the prayer for the Jewish people: “Let us pray for the Jewish people, to whom our Lord spoke first, that He may grant them to advance in love of his name and in faithfulness to his covenant. ‘Almighty ever-living God, who bestowed your promises on Abraham and his descendants, graciously hear the prayers of your Church, that the people you first made your own may attain the fullness of redemption. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.'” Most of the “metaphysical Jewishness” you’re thinking of, and whether or not they need Christ (they do) is found in Romans 11. Abraham is the root from which Judaism, Islam, and Christianity all spring, so they’re somewhat inter-related that way.
      I was completely struck by these prayers too!
