Catching our breath

I seem to blog in fits and starts these days. After a quiet February, I’ve had a bit of a blogging frenzy this week, with four fairly heavy posts inspired directly or indirectly by James Alison.

I’m about to launch off on another series of posts, this time on an essay by Tim Keller, but in the meantime here’s a summary of the last few day’s posts before they get swept further downstream:

  • Relating to Jesus: on breaking up with “Jesus the boyfriend in my head” and instead seeking a liturgical and sacramental encounter with him in the Lord’s Supper, the daily office and the Jesus prayer.
  • No more scapegoats: on RenĂ© Girard’s concept of the “scapegoat mechanism”, with particular topical reference to the Jon Venables case.
  • Mary as Ark and Tabernacle: how Mary “definitively and triumphantly” fulfils Old Testament “dress rehearsals”.
  • Magic Eyes to see: looking beyond the wavy lines of bread and wine to the 3D presence of Jesus’ body and blood.
