Duc In Altum – Put Out Into the Deep

  What would it look like if we submitted our entire will to God? What kind of an impact would we have on the world? How fulfilling and peaceful would life become? While these are difficult questions to answer, they are worth considering. The Saints are examples of those who embraced God’s will for their […]

Frassati, Gonzaga, and the True Nature of Rebellion

It’s no secret that young people are abandoning the church. The reasons behind the rebellion and abandonment are complex. No one seems to have a full understanding of the reasoning behind the millennial generation’s denial of the Catholic Church and their subsequent association as “Nones.” As a young person from the millennial generation, even I […]

The Astounding Humility in Jesus’ Human Nature

Humility is considered by St Augustine to be the foundation of all other virtues – the trait that lays the groundwork on our journey toward holiness. During his own conversion, “he came to see clearly that only a person with humility can follow Christ.” We can often spot when humility is present in someone’s life but […]

Musings of a Young Parent

Having only been a parent for four years now gives me a relatively limited view of parenthood. On top of that, I am part of one of the least religious generations in history- millennials. I don’t think, however, that my perspective is valueless because of my age or experience. My wife and I strive to […]

Finding Our True Identity

It’s amazing how much Christian imagery can be found in society today if we look hard enough. Many modern movies and songs indirectly portray the Gospel message by illustrating themes like self-sacrificial love, forgiveness, and finding our identity in something other than societal norms. I want to focus on that last theme – identity – […]

The Allure of the Catholic Church

As I was making my way into the Catholic Church about 5 years ago, my priest at the time said something that still echoes in my mind today- “The Catholic Church is a treasure chest of spiritual resources. You can skim the top and experience only the basics of Christianity, but there is so much […]

Athletic Spirituality and Competition, Part II

In my previous post (Athletic Spirituality and Competition, Part I), I discussed the idea of “The Competitive Christian” and God’s call to use our competitive nature on our journey towards heaven. We recognized our opponent, identified the importance of practice, emphasized the transference of competition to the spiritual realm, and touched on the idea of striving […]

Athletic Spirituality and Competition, Part I

I was privileged enough to play collegiate baseball for four years and professionally for two years before riding into the sunset of retirement where the real challenge began- figuring out how to relate my athletic experience to everyday life. My whole athletic life was spent striving for goals that were physically attainable if I put […]

Poor in Spirit but Rich in Life

Poor in Spirit but Rich in Life

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:3) Poor in spirit. It is amazing how easy it is to gloss over Jesus’ epic red letter words in the Bible. We read his exhortations and commandments through our tainted human lenses and forget that He wants nothing more than […]
