Father James Martin, a Jesuit priest who’s written numerous books, blog posts and appeared on Comedy Central, describes “a longing for a connection with God and for a way to make that connection real in the world,” in today’s USA Today. In ancient days the church told Gospel stories with pictures in stained-glass windows. Now it’s the Web and TV. Says Martin, 49: “Everyone needs a medium. Mine is popular culture.” Read more insights from Father Martin along with a discussion of his new book, The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything: The Spirituality of Real Life, here.
