The Gospel of Matthew, in which we find this story of the Annunciation, starts with a genealogy in order to direct the reader to the point that the Jesus movement was not only a continuation of the received (Jewish) heritages but also an intensification of that received traditions (“you have heard… but I say to you…”) in the grand scheme of the salvation history. St. Joseph’s situation, with his irregular family and expecting a baby out of wedlock, was outside of the norms of the time. However, God’s will and the new law override these perceived deviations and intensify the expected norms to give new meanings in the context of the New Law. In light of potentially being ridiculed, ostracized, or persecuted, St. Joseph responds by risking his life to be true to his vocation as a father, husband, and disciple. That history continues today. Religion is often perceived as feminine in the American society. This is particularly important for KAC men as their participation and involvement continues to decline in recent years. They can mirror the attitude, characteristics, and actions of St. Joseph (Three J’s: an attitude of a <em>Jangin</em> (<em>Tekton</em>), <em>Jasang-ham</em>, and <em>Jashin-gam</em>) to discover their own religious place within Korean American Catholic churches. This method may take them beyond Joseph’s stories to the Catholic liturgical tradition and, indeed, Jesus himself. In the process of their own version of the intensification of today’s received norms, however, they may also need to risk being ridiculed, perceived as deviant, and even being ostracized by some members of their own community and/or society at large.</p> Hoon Choi ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-10-16 2018-10-16 31 1 1 10 Preaching as Praying http://newtheologyreview.com/index.php/ntr/article/view/1419 <p>Recent criticism of Catholic preaching centers on a dichotomy between religion and faith, considered to be an outmoded remnant of Counter-Reformation thinking.&nbsp; This article proposes, on the contrary, that one of the great Counter-Reformation preachers — St. Francis de Sales (1567-1622) — can serve as a source and model of sacred eloquence for preachers today.&nbsp;&nbsp; By adopting the complementary methodologies for praying and preaching expounded by St. Francis de Sales, homilists will have at their disposal an inspired means for effectively communicating the Good News of religious faith. By preaching as they pray, they can realize what Pope Francis means when he says, "The homily can actually be an intense and happy experience of the Spirit, a consoling encounter with God’s word, a constant source of renewal and growth" (<em>Evangelii Gaudium</em>, no. 135).</p> Thomas Francis Dailey ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-10-24 2018-10-24 31 1 11 17 Performing a Just Spirituality http://newtheologyreview.com/index.php/ntr/article/view/1444 <p>This article explores worship as an act of public theology.&nbsp; The focus is the beatification liturgy of Solanus Casey on 18 November 2017.&nbsp; Stage in a football arena in Detroit before 71,000 people and live streamed to approximately 240 million viewers, the challenge was to craft a liturgical event that was not only participatory and met the key criteria for post-conciliar worship, but that also respected the spirit and ministry of Solanus Casey.&nbsp; A simple friar who was ordained a simplex priest and served as a porter for decades, Solanus served the poor by feeding them literally and spiritually. &nbsp;&nbsp;This article introduces the life and spirit of Solanus and traces the cult that developed around him.&nbsp; Particular attention is given to the Solanus Casey Center built in 2003, that rehearsed many of the aesthetic principles that came to bear in the beatification liturgy.&nbsp; Consideration of that liturgy is achieved through reflection on the people, music and environment that framed the worship.&nbsp; The contention is that the worship yet stayed true to the spirit of Solanus and his Franciscan tradition, publicly announcing inclusivity, simplicity and justice at the heart of the worship.</p> Edward Foley ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-10-24 2018-10-24 31 1 18 36 Interculturality as an Eschatological Sign http://newtheologyreview.com/index.php/ntr/article/view/1388 <p>The diversity found within the church often mirrors the changes of our society. Just as multicultural churches reflect the settlement of different cultures into our neighborhoods, today’s intercultural worship space is being transformed by intercultural marriages. What the rise of these marital unions teaches us is that both church and society are not simply a place where different cultures coexist. Rather, the intimacy of interculturality reveals that the coming together of different cultures and peoples expands our encounter with God by looking at the sacred space created by these unions. Also, by looking at Jesus’s command to go forth after the resurrection as well as the Pentecost event as an intensification of his own upbringing in the Galilean region, we can understand that the call to a new intercultural way of believers to come together was not a new concept but was always a vision within the life of Christ.</p> Simon C.

This article offers a glimpse into that permeating affirmation. &nbsp;It endeavors to demonstrate through a brief consideration of key scriptural texts how these Abrahamic traditions call adherents to go beyond a confined theology of welcome or hospitality to embrace a more radical, inclusive theology of belonging: a political theology that makes way for regarding the stranger as citizen, or, more perfectly, as a full and equal participant in community.</p> Aaron Tyler ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-10-24 2018-10-24 31 1 46 56 Catechesis and Faith Formation http://newtheologyreview.com/index.php/ntr/article/view/1452 Fatima Lee ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-10-16 2018-10-16 31 1 57 60 New Voices http://newtheologyreview.com/index.php/ntr/article/view/1465 Gustavo Amell Sanes ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2018-10-22 2018-10-22 31 1 61 64 Signs of the Times http://newtheologyreview.com/index.php/ntr/article/view/1464 Thomas M.
