When I was a kid, I used to have a set of Bible storybooks. Appearing throughout those volumes were artistic depictions of heaven. I’ve seen pictures like them all my life, in all sorts of Christian books. I’m sure that most of us have. See if this doesn’t sound familiar. In the foreground of this painting is an idyllic park setting. Beautiful flowers and trees dot the landscape. The footpaths weave between lush, grassy meadows and crystal ponds. Lions and lambs and all sorts of animals cavort about with little children. Men and women, all clad in white, stroll about, conversing with angels. Just behind the park is the shining…

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Glory to Jesus Christ! [Glory to him forever!]

Anyone that’s been to my house… I know all of you are always invited, especially during the Paschal season when we have our parish-wide gathering at our home in Moon Township, but at other times, when people have been there, they know that I have a dog. We have a dog, Jax, and Jax is our family companion. In fact, he’s probably as much of a member of our family as anyone else. Those of you that have pets at home feel the same about your pets.

This is John Maddex of AFR, and today I’m hosting The Illumined Heart so that we can turn the microphone on our regular host, Kevin Allen, because our topic today is on catechizing Eastern religion and New Age inquirers. Catch that title very carefully: Eastern religion and New Age inquirers.

Just by way of a background, Kevin Allen, with the blessing of his priests, recently developed a special catechism module for a group of seekers and inquirers for his own parish,…
