But his tomb had been lost to history. Now, funded anonymously by a wealthy American, a small army of workers embarked on the dig of a lifetime.

That’s a lot like your spiritual life. You can take the wheel of your faith, get out there, and go. And just like a good road trip, your spiritual life can be full of adventure, joy, and exhilaration. But there are also signs to watch out for and hazards to avoid.

Bored Again Catholic: How the Mass Could Save Your Life
Are you BORED? Not likely, given the endless opportunities today to see, share, post, watch, and like. So are you bored? No way!
(Except maybe at Mass.)
We want the Mass to entertain, make us laugh, give us foot-tapping music and sound-bite theology, and get it done in under an hour. Yet every Sunday many of us tune out.
Author Tim O’Malley, in a series of reflections on every part of the Mass, challenges us to turn the idea of boredom on its head, calling boredom—the “good” boredom that opens us to the quiet interior space where we can encounter God—a “sweet gift.”
It is there that full participation in the Mass becomes possible—the potential to be transfixed by a ritual, to contempl...
