A Sacred Look: Becoming Cultural Mystics – Theology of Popular Culture
Nancy Usselmann, FSP
How should a follower of Christ engage the popular media culture? By becoming a mystic! Sr. Nancy challenges Christians today to delve deep into the rich theological tradition of the church as the root and foundation for recognizing the beauty of God present in all that is truly human.
The artists of popular culture sometimes unwittingly seek transcendence while grappling with some of humanity’s most profound existential longings. The cultural mystics of today point out those needs of humanity in the culture’s artefacts in order to enter into dialogue with those who seek something beyond what this world satisfies.
The anthropological-sacramental-incarnational paradigm presented gives us this ability to take a sacred look of the culture and offer the joy of the Gospel, Christ who is the answer of all humanity’s yearnings!

A Christology of Religions
Gerald O’Collins adopts the person and saving work of Christ as the master key for organizing themes commonly treated by theologies of religion. But he does so through the lens of Christology to examine important themes that these theologies typically ignore: the relevance of the theology of the cross for thinking about “the others”; the impact of Christ’s priesthood on all men and women of all places and times; the efficacy of prayer for “the others” inspired by love; and the nature of faith available for these “others.”
This “Christology of religions,” can help break the current stalemate widely affecting the theology of religions, and breathe new life into thinking about religious “others."
