Take It From Teresa

Teresa Tomeo is considered one of today's leading contemporary Catholic thinkers and teachers. Here you will find her popular Eye on Culture column published through Our Sunday Visitor newspaper as well as her thoughts and reflections on issues of the day.

  • Now More Than Ever, Please Consider the Source

    Cell phone  morgue file smRecently a listener to my radio program sent me an email. She was very upset and wanted to know why Pope Francis was suddenly telling the world that divorce was morally acceptable. This woman was beside herself because she has married children who are struggling in their relationships and she fears that the Pope was giving them just the ammunition they needed to call the divorce lawyers instead of the marriage counselors.

  • Always Be Ready To Give A Defense For The Hope That Is Within You

    Rembrandt Christ in the Storm on the Lake of GalileeAlways Be Ready to Give a Defense

    for the Hope that is Within You

    1st Peter 3:15

     

    1st Peter 3:15 is one of my top ten Bible verses. It’s a reminder that every single one of us, by virtue of our Baptism as the Church teaches, is called to evangelize. Since we are all very different that evangelization will no doubt come in all shapes and sizes, but one thing is for sure; it’s a must do for every Catholic Christian. Along with the responsibility to evangelize comes the responsibility to evangelize lovingly.

     

    Well, there is no time like the present. This week the United States Supreme Court is set to issue a ruling regarding so-called same-sex marriage. Whether the high court declares this the law of the land, or puts the matter back in the hands of the individual states, our roles will be the same. Either way as Catholics we will be challenged. Either way we will be called to witness, and as St. Peter reminds us in the rest of that beautiful verse, we will be called to witness with gentleness and reverence. Yes, gentleness and reverence. Not easy things to do in general when the discussion of faith or religion is brought up at the family barbecue or graduation party, but especially when it comes to the issue of same-sex attraction. If the ruling goes back to the state level, which is the most hopeful scenario for those who support marriage between one man and one woman, the Catholic Church and other Christian churches and organizations will be no doubt be attacked and wrongly blamed for among other things, taking the country “backwards and not forwards”, for promoting what many try to pass off as “hatefulness and bigotry”, you can fill in the blanks I am sure with a variety of harsh words and names to which you might have already been subjected. If God forbid, the justice’s rule in favor, Christians and other conservatives will basically be told in more ways than one that we have to not only accept the change but promote, endorse, and embrace it as well. In other words, either way it is not going to be pretty.

  • T's Italy: A Room With Quite A View

    Many of you have been praying for me and asking how I am doing since it has been a week since my last update. I thank you for your concern and prayers. I have been off the air for almost a month due to severe laryngitis and under doctor’s orders for voice rest. I continue to heal, the voice is almost back to normal, and God willing, I am scheduled to get back into the hosting chair June 1st. I am excited about broadcasting live from the beautiful EWTN radio studios in Birmingham, Alabama. I’ll be there all week long for the radio broadcasts, the taping of season six of the Catholic View for Women, and last but not least, to help host our first, and hopefully annual, Catholic View for Women pilgrimage. I am also grateful to Doug Keck, EWTN Chief Operating Officer and host of the wonderful and very popular “Bookmark” program for interviewing me on my latest book Walk Softly and Carry a Great Bag: On the Go Devotions.”

  • I Was Born For You

    Teresa Tomeo on May 12, 2015
    Tagged in: Prayer

    St. Teresa of Avila Pin - In Your HandWhen most of us think of famous words written by mystic and Doctor of the Church, St. Teresa of Avila, we think of her beautiful poem and prayer commonly referred to as “St. Teresa’s Bookmark

    Let nothing disturb you.

    Nothing frighten you.

    All things are passing.

    God never changes.

    Patience obtains all things.

    Nothing is wanting in him who possesses God.

    God alone suffices.

     

    That’s why you might be as surprised as I was to learn that the theme for the celebration marking 500 years since her birth is not based on this particular prayer, which can be commonly found on the back of holy cards bearing her image. Instead it is based on another prayer; one even more powerful, because it shows the depth of her dependence on God and her total trust in Him, come what may. The poem or prayer is entitled “I was born for you,” also known as “In the Hands of God. You’ll find a link to it at the end of this blog, but here are a few of the moving verses that should stop us in our tracks in terms of those of us who truly desire to do God’s will no matter what the cost.

  • When God Made Mothers

    Mom w BabyPsalm 139:14 “You are fearfully and wonderfully made.”

     

    People often ask me at speaking events whether I get nervous before giving a presentation or before going on the air. My reply is always the same. I don’t get nervous on the microphone in the radio studio or behind the podium at a major conference; not about the mechanics. God has trained me well. I have been speaking in public in one way, shape, or form since dirt. Well, more specifically since the third grade. That’s when the poor Sisters of St. Joseph at my Catholic grade school didn’t know quite what to do with this Chatty Kathy so they put me on the stage and in front of the class; performing in small productions or reading our English assignments out loud.

     

    That said (no pun intended) there is something very important about what God has assigned me to do that causes my knees to shake, and frankly sends me down on my knees regularly in prayer. Every time I am ready to do another radio show or interview, and every time I am about to speak at a parish gathering or a retreat, I realize the massive responsibility that comes with the platform. People look to those of us on the front-lines in ministry as voices of truth and guidance. It can be daunting at times when you stop and think about it.

  • This Didn't Take Very Long

    Sad womanJust days after the release of the violent porn film Fifty Shades of Grey, the culture is seeing what some insist is only meant for fantasy being played out dangerously in real life. In Chicago, a 19 year old bio nuclear engineering student from the University of Illinois is behind bars. He was arrested after allegedly raping a young woman and claiming he was inspired by the movie. Nineteen year old Mohammad Hossain is charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault; accused of bounding and gagging the woman, beating her with a belt and his fists despite pleas for him to stop. He told police he was attempting to re-enact scenes from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. He is being held on $500,000 bail. Whatever happens criminally in this case, the lives of these two young people have been forever altered.

  • "Fifty Shades of Grey" Counteraction Plan

    Boycott 350We’re Not Alone When It Comes to Countering the Counterfeit Messages in Fifty Shades of Grey

     

    UPDATE: Let's keep boycotting Fifty Shades of Grey because the boycott is having an impact. Although the movie that glorifies the abuse and objectification of women is still making money it made a lot less during it's second weekend at the box office dropping 73% in terms of ticket sales. Meanwhile the beautiful film Old Fashioned continues to gain in popularity opening in another additional 100 theaters. So keep spreading the word and reminding women and men everywhere that they deserve better than "Fifty Shades of Grey.

     

    The stories keep coming. Over the past few weeks on my radio show I’ve been discussing the opening of the film Fifty Shades of Grey this Valentine’s Day weekend. I wish I could tell you that it’s only a book or a movie; that even though hundreds of millions of people are familiar with the names Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, that their twisted relationship is not having any impact and followers of the fictional characters can simply walk away from the sadomasochistic scenes after they're done reading the books or watching the trailers that have been running since last summer. But I can’t. Unfortunately, it’s quite the opposite.

  • It Really Is A Baby After All. Who Knew? Kate Middleton - That's Who

    Timing is everything and God’s timing of course is always perfect. Here we are in Respect Life week. Hundreds of thousands are gathering in Washington D.C., San Francisco, and other major cities to stand up for life from womb to tomb. We should always be ready and willing to defend life. But given all the pro-life activities and discussions taking place this month, what better time than right now?

     

    Maybe it’s just coincidence, but thanks to Kate Middleton and the mass media who follow the Duchess’s every move, we have just been handed a golden opportunity for witnessing to the cause of life. Just look at this headline that has been plastered on major news web sites including ABC News and Yahoo:
