Links and Things: Epiphany Edition

Bishop Robert Barron's Christmas Day op-ed in the LA Times on the "subversive nature" of the infancy narrative in Luke's Gospel. In his time, Caesar was called "son of the divine" and "savior of the world." To call Jesus such things, then, was not just a theological statement: it was treason.

Fascinating article at The Imaginative Conservative by Fr. Dwight Longenecker on a way of seeing the three Indiana Jones films as a spiritual journey. (You may think that there was a fourth film. This was a mass hallucination. Never happened.)

Mike Eisenbath on the challenge and importance of detachment in the spiritual life.

I highly recommend Big Pulpit for links to all kinds of Catholic-y things. (Full disclosure: its founder also founded Catholic Stand, for which I am an editor.)
