I have always gotten a kick out of sports coverage for Catholic schools. The headlines are often a kick:

HOLY FATHERS DISMANTLE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
Whole theological texts could be written on sports headlines.

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first
