My Plea For “Unknown Heroism”

My Plea For “Unknown Heroism”

When I was a child, my parents never fought in front of me, never anything stronger than a cross or stern word now and then. That doesn’t mean they didn’t occasionally argue. My bedroom was next to theirs; we shared a wall. I could hear them raise their irate voices with each other late at […]

Laudate Si and Birth Control

<em>Laudate Si</em> and Birth Control

There is a fundamental difference between our generation’s world view, which is heavily influenced by utilitarianism and consumerism, versus the Catholic world view in which everything is given to us. This difference in viewing things touches upon all aspects of our spiritual life and earthly life. Pope Francis mentions this again and again in his […]

Contemporary Culture Wars: Is History Repeating?

Lately, there is a lot of talk within Christian circles how to live the Faith in the midst of a morally-decaying (and increasingly hostile) Western culture.[i] I would like to join the fray and add some of my own observations. There is an old saying, “Every analogy limps” and another that says, “History does not […]

The Trail of Fetal Body Parts in Scientific Papers

The Trail of Fetal Body Parts in Scientific Papers

Maybe the undercover investigation conducted by the Center for Medical Progress needed to happen so people could see and hear the gruesomeness of Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of fetal body parts. Maybe it was too easy to ignore without video-taped evidence in plain, gory language. Maybe it is not enough to be outraged at […]

Is Marriage a Lifestyle or Something More?

Is Marriage a Lifestyle or Something More?

The Supreme Court’s recent rendering on same-sex marriage continues to be met with mixed emotions. Many feel this was the correct decision since those who practice a same-sex lifestyle should be entitled to the same rights as heterosexuals. Others feel that the institution of marriage was dealt, yet another, critical blow. Regardless of one’s position, […]

Pope Francis Has Single-Handedly Destroyed Catholicism AGAIN

I’ve previously written about how Pope Francis had single-handedly destroyed Catholicism, and now it’s happened AGAIN. I’m sure you’ve heard about Pope Francis’ recent encyclical Laudato Si’, in which the Holy Father commands that every Catholic, upon pain of excommunication, MUST believe that climate change/global warming is a scientific reality, caused entirely by Catholics, and that only the Democrats […]

My Answers To Questions About Gay “Marriage”

With regard to gay “marriage”, here is a list of the questions I come across most often, with my brief answers: -1- “Why are you against gay marriage?” It’s not that I am against gay “marriage” per se, it’s that gay “marriage” is an ontological impossibility. It’s like asking why I am against square circles. […]

However, take heart, hope is never lost. God has a plan to deal with the evil unleashed in this world. Inspired by The Lord’s appearance to an African bishop […]

One Simple Way to Follow Laudato Si

The new Encyclical Laudato Si is being widely discussed, and obviously contains some controversial sections. I would like to draw attention to a totally positive point, which easily escapes attention. Here’s the final part of paragraph 26: “Investments have also been made in means of production and transportation which consume less energy and require fewer […]

Keep Calm and Rely on Sound Doctrine

The times, they are a-changin’. It can arguably be said that we are in a moral crisis mode unequalled in history. Certainly, there have been depraved and godless societies before us – even to the extent of the sexual perversion and idolatry of riches (and power) rampant today. But what we haven’t seen in times […]

Go into any fitness wear store, and you are guaranteed to see multiple t-shirts and posters advertising the importance of a good attitude when trying to achieve a goal. “Attitude changes everything,” and “Success is 80% attitude, 20% hard work,” are a couple of examples of popular motivational phrases, meant to help athletes and fitness […]

When You Need to “Love Yourself”

When You Need to “Love Yourself”

Of the types of most-frequently-shared memes are those that convey the message, “Love yourself just the way you are.” That message always makes me squirm. Which part of “the way we are” are we supposed to love? The way we feel? The bad habits that we enjoy? Love our sins? These words about love are […]

How to Bury Your Baby After a Miscarriage

The loss of a child is a nightmare for every parent. In the first few hours and days of grief and shock, it’s hard to know what to do. It’s especially hard when the loss occurs in early pregnancy, since our culture isn’t accustomed to treating unborn babies as human beings — and this happens […]

Today’s Man: Recreating the Garden of Eden

We had it all in the Garden of Eden. Everything we relentlessly seek today was ours then, and we lost it. We lost it through one act of disobedience. One tree, one rule, one empty promise, one bite, and an eternal fall.  We lost it by seeking to change the status quo, hungry for more than what […]

Ignore Those Walls!

We live in a hectic, deadline driven world. Whether at work or home, things are either speeding towards us from all sides, or we are flying headlong into one event after another. At the office we are in a constant state of managing the expectations of bosses, peers and customers. At home we rush kids […]

Beware, These Aren’t Your Parents’ Scouts!

This isn’t your parent’s scouting! As if it’s not bad enough that the Girl Scouts of America are in cahoots with abortion giant Planned Parenthood, enter the push within the Boy Scouts of America for openly homosexual leaders. As it is, they already accept openly gay scouts into the fold. But now we have more, deeply troubling developments […]

It Takes Two to Two Step

“To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak” – Hopi Indian Saying I’ve been dancing a lot lately – two step, cha cha, waltz, triple step, triple two step. These dances are different from line dancing, different from the kind of dance I do around my living room when my favorite song comes on, […]
