Dignity USA Latest News

August 9, 2023 | by Tom DeVoyd | We are surrounded by noise, bombarded by information. Perhaps unwittingly, like Elijah and Peter in today’s readings, we instinctively believe God will shout over everything and everyone else. But today’s reflection reminds us that Love generally does not overpower others, rather Love whispers from within our hearts.
August 2, 2023 | by Marianne Seggerman | The meaning of Jesus’s transfiguration has long been debated among Scriptural commentators. Today’s reflection invites us to see it as a statement of continuity – a path given by the Law, the Prophets, and affirmed by Jesus that we would do well to walk along.
July 26, 2023 | by Lori Ranner | Scholars have long debated what Jesus meant when he spoke of God’s Reign. Today’s reflection invites us to focus on an even more important reality: we have been empowered and entrusted to bring about this reign of love through the Divine gift, and responsibility, of our choices.
July 19, 2023 | by Jeff Vomund | The problems of the world can feel so overwhelming: climate change, bigotry, poverty. Where does one even begin to make a difference? In today’s gospel, Jesus suggests that the scope of the problem does not change the pathway to a solution.
July 12, 2023 | by John Falcone | It is tempting to see God as distant from the world. As if the Divine is to be encountered only when we have completed our stint in creation and “get to” heaven. But this week’s reflection reminds us the Scriptures see our world as infused with the Divine. Only in the union of Divine Love and creation does our true vocation as disciples emerge.
