Illustrated Resources (RC & RCL)

  • Pour Out Light Unshadowed

    by Michael Simone, SJ
    The show “Hoarders” profiles individuals whose obsessive fear of loss causes a compulsive accumulation of unneeded things. In every episode, a mental health professional tries to help the individual break this cycle. For many, hoarding started with a catastrophic childhood loss. Memories of that death darken every succeeding event; a lifetime of reinforcement drives them to cling to anything that might protect them from another loss. They only find relief when they overcome their fear.
  • A Dead Man Named Jesus

    by Dan Clendenin
    I hadn't planned to see the movie Risen (Sony Pictures). The story is about an agnostic Roman centurion named Clavius who is tasked by Pontius Pilate with debunking the rumors that a crucified criminal named Yeshua had risen from the dead. It sounded like an easy job — after all, Clavius himself had given the order to spear Yeshua in the side as he hung from the cross, so all he had to do was to identify the dead body. But in one important regard I really liked Risen — it helped me to imagine that in real history and in real human lives something like the story about Clavius definitely happened after the death of Jesus. Rumors and denials. Fear and confusion. Doubt and incredulity. That's exactly what we read in the gospels.
  • A Miracle Morning

    by Steve Goodier
    ("In her poem Aurora Leigh, Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote: 'Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God: But only he who sees, takes off his shoes, The rest sit round it, and pluck blackberries.' Along the early morning path, my friend had removed her shoes. For her, earth was "crammed with heaven" and "every bush afire." It wasn't just perkiness; she had eyes to see what I had completely missed. I was, as Browning might say, sitting around plucking blackberries...")
  • Easter Sunday

    from Sacra Conversazione
    In his sweetly provocative essay Noli me tangere!: On the Raising of the Body, Jean-Luc Nancy considers in considerable detail the encounter in John’s narrative between Mary Magdalene and the Risen Christ. In his essay he notes the significance that every major artist in Western art has been captivated by this encounter. His text reproduces many of them and he provides a list at the end of more than fifty of the most notable from art collections around the world. And, of course, he also provides his own unique interpretation of this encounter only in John’s gospel.
  • The Evil Underpinning Easter

    by Peter Woods
    Approaching the pivotal Christian feast of Easter with its themes of death and redemption, I am aware of how much violence is a feature of our daily news. Whether it be in domestic and child abuse, street violence, or brutal murder, violence stalks us like a hungry wolf.
