Dignity USA Latest News

November 15, 2023 | by Jon Schum | It is so tempting to look for “the” meaning in a Scriptural passage. But today’s reflection reminds us that Jesus’s parables are not intended to offer easy solutions so much as upend them. We are invited to discern what meaning today’s Parable of the Talents might hold for us, a process grounded not in human cleverness so much as in awe at Divine love and majesty.
November 9, 2023 | by DignityUSA | The Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (formerly the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) has declared that some transgender people, including those who who have undergone medical gender affirmation, can be baptized.
November 8, 2023 | by David Jackson | There is a strand of Christian piety that sees life on earth as a short prelude to our “real” life after we leave this world. But Jesus’ words do not bear out such a quietist perspective. Instead, as today’s reflection reminds us, waiting for the disciple is an active, engaged state of being in which we are not only preparing for the life to come, we are cooperating in bringing it about.
November 1, 2023 | by DignityUSA | DignityUSA invites you to participate in our Advent Reflection Series for 2023. We are celebrating Pope Francis' welcome to all and his prophetic words given at a World Youth Day address: "Todos! Todos! Todos!" Todos means "all." All are welcome to join us for an advent-themed reflection on the week's readings, followed by group discussions.
November 1, 2023 | by Ann Penick | It is always tempting to hear Jesus’ diatribes against hypocrisy as intended for other listeners. Today’s reflection reminds us that we, too, are an intended audience. If we hope to be nourished at the Table of Love’s Law, then we must let it penetrate deeper than mere observance.
