14 Ways to Help Your Child Maintain Catholic Faith in College

No doubt college is an exciting and dangerous time, a time of independence mixed with heavy doses of temptation, but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be a time of spiritual growth as well. As we send our children off to college, it is important to remember the influence we still have over them and to encourage them […]

The Catholic Church is Right on Infant Baptism

On a recent episode of the Catholic Answers Live radio call in show, a Protestant caller vehemently objected to the Catholic practice of infant baptism. After quoting Romans 10:9, “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, you shall be saved,” he […]

Threats to Catholicism on College Campuses

I was angry, but not as angry as I should have been. I was kind of curious, too: What would she say? How could the speaker justify her actions? How could my Catholic university justify its actions?” I sat in the classroom listening to the woman from Planned Parenthood and wondered again why my Catholic university had allowed this […]

Full-Time Mother: My Decision Of Vocation

I have recently taken the plunge of quitting my job and officially becoming a full-time mother. This might sound cliché on these circles of Catholic blogs, but for me, especially living in Portugal, it is outrageous. While about 29% of mothers stay at home in the USA, only 6.3% do so in Europe. Plus, Portugal […]

Culture Wars: To Whom Shall We Go?

“There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there.” -G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man It is tempting to cut and run when things get hard. As I am sure we have all experienced, what is best is not always what is easiest; what is right is not always what […]

St. Augustine: What Has Been Injured Shall Be Renewed

I had made a point of not watching the recent videos exposing the barbaric evils of Planned Parenthood and Stem Express, put out by the Center for Medical Progress. You find out what is in them without that. Why expose myself to seeing images I would not be able to erase from my mind? Why […]

Conspiracies and Catholicism: Lucifer

Conspiracies and Catholicism: Lucifer

Lucifer, the Morning Star, Satan, The Devil, ruler of hell, fallen angel . . . There are a lot of different ways to talk about the theological bad guy, and a whole lot of incorrect “common knowledge” references that are more dramatically useful than theologically sound.  Being dramatically useful and theologically incorrect doesn’t make them evil or irrelevant, […]

Why Do We Still Expect Marital Fidelity?

Why Do We Still Expect Marital Fidelity?

  The fallout from the Ashley Madison “data dump” has only begun. Much of the media attention has focused on B-list celebrity Josh Duggar, from his parents’ broken hearts to the inevitable amateur long-distance psychoanalysis and condemnations of the purity movement. However, sidebars do go into the hundreds of federal employees who have accessed the […]

Combatting Planned Parenthood: How To Serve and Protect Life

I met my husband because of the pro-life movement — I interviewed him for a radio story as I was covering a 40 Days for Life campaign. Since then I’ve attended countless 40 Days for Life rallies, prayer events, pro-life talks and parties — and all as a participant instead of as a reporter. Unfortunately, […]

Edith Stein On Becoming the Best Version of Yourself

Edith Stein On Becoming the Best Version of Yourself

Is the idea of destiny just a useful fiction, a dramatic device to move a story along or is it something more than that? Consider the classic movie When Harry Met Sally, where the man and woman cross paths over the course of years, destined to be together, but always miss the mark. Why are […]
