Wella Moments

Next Step #754 – November 17, 2022 – Pre-thanksgiving messages to the questions of robots with souls and worshipping with AI creatures. Not too far off considering Disney gave a soul and personality to a rodent named Mickey.  Carl Perkins helping Paul McCartney grieve John Lennon. Pope Francis and the World Day of the Poor: a challenge from the pages of In His Shoes. Baptism as a candle of hope.

Children Unheard

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #732: Whether children of war or those who suffer the effects of autism, it’s the Church that is the Body of Christ in this world today. Pope Francis, Little Red Riding Hood and the bad wolf: WW3? Jesus and the problem of unchosenness. Fr. Vazken discusses the challenge of a war that is forgotten and points to a new ministry initiated in the Western Diocese, to families challenged by autism.

Jesus Eyes

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #721: All the beauty of this world can be wiped out with the push of a couple of buttons. Playing by the rules of humanity instead of the rules of politics. You’d like to believe war is good for “absolutely nothing” until you stop and think how it grabs your attention. Conflict resolution with new metaphors. Imagine a modern day R&R prophet. Francis consecrates Ukraine and Russia. Tears shed over a rose in the rain. Dilemmas of the ethnic church(es). The cheap route of genocide recognition.

Communication: Metaphor for Life

Next Step #559: Communication breakdown and the Opportunity to explore and hope. From the Mars rover to the Pope’s visit to the United Arab Emirates, Fr. Vazken discusses the need for relevance in any relationship and entity, especially the Church. Twists and turns will take you for an interesting and thought provoking discussion about the limits of life when communications break down. Canadian Diocese communicates beyond themselves with “Diversity.” Jesus: the timeless communicator.

The Peter Trap

Next Step #421: Missing the point: Peter sets up a tent for Christ, Armenians give the Pope an Ark and we remember Vardavar!… did something go unnoticed?  Reflections on the historic visit of Pope Francis to the First Christian Nation: An alarm clock and wake up call. The Papal Mass and distribution of Holy Communion: A personal confession and an understanding of distribution to Catholics and Orthodox. The successors of Sts. Peter and Thaddeus meet: it’s more than a Genocide remembrance. Finding Armodoxy today.

The Other Side of the Cafeteria

Next Step #420: Pope Francis’ visit to Armenia begs the question why? Take this step of the “cafeteria” from the other side. Catholicism and Orthodoxy, or validation of the obvious? Fr. Vazken explores with two stories of “defrocked” weddings and sacraments. Pandora beware.
