Thank you for “A man who loved” from the editors in the June 18 Sentinel [“Not guilty”]. I appreciate the editors calling out the unrelenting pressure in our culture to be sexual and think sexually. What a breath of fresh air to be challenged to break through the imagery promoted by the media and take a look at Christ Jesus, a man who deeply loved men, women, and children and “yet his love was far apart from any physical attraction. His pure sense of love really dealt with a different world from the world of sexuality.” There are plenty of lesser role models for men and women in today’s world and to have Christ Jesus as a model for real manhood and womanhood is powerful stuff. Thanks for the reminder!

I’m enjoying reading the Sentinel on “Olympics Summer 2012,” especially Tony Lobl’s article [“Spiritual participation in the Olympics”] and his invitation to all of us to “show up” through “practicing the prayerful art of spiritual discernment, and . . . flex [our] ‘metaphysical muscles’ on behalf of the common good.” His deep conviction and insightful choice of words always get my attention.

Enjoy 1 free Sentinel article or audio program each month, including content from 1898 to today.
