You Went to the Wedding. Now What?

Life is close to idyllic this time of year. Summer temperatures are not quite at their peak. Barbecues are held every weekend. School is out for many children. Teenagers work days then head to beaches for fun with friends. Families load up cars and head for adventures yet to be determined. Birds sing. Music plays. […]

“It is Finished” — The Witness to the Culmination of a Promise

“It is finished!” (John 19:30): three of the most wonderful words in all of Scripture. Though we read them and rejoice, I sometimes wonder if we truly grasp the awesome significance they have for us. There is high theology in those words, and yet their message is as simple as the faith of a child. […]

The Wounded Healer

In last week’s column, I shared a most painful and debilitating event in my family’s life. I waited two-and-a-half years to publish our story; not for publicity or tabloid sensationalism, but to serve as a testament to how God the Father, God the Son and the Holy Spirit uses our wounds for a greater purpose.

Catholic Writers: Stand Up for the Truth in LOVE

Let us witness then in love, without sinning against those who have yet to experience the joy of the Eucharist or a deep relationship with their Heavenly Mother. I am proud to proclaim I am a Catholic writer. A Spirit-filled lover of Jesus who expects to be accepted by Protestant lovers of Jesus, because I am […]

OpEd: “There’s No Cursing In Evangelizing!”

Recently, I have witnessed a rather disturbing trend on social media, and in comboxes at the end of articles, that suggest Christians really do not understand their purpose at all. Profanity. Condemnation. Humiliation. Arrogance. Pride. The whole matter is quite troubling. And I am only referring here to the Catholic Christians! New Evangelization Run Amuck In […]

Encountering God In Daily Life

New York City can be a daunting place for a Catholic, or anyone who wants to live a religious or moral life. While it is a most materialistic and secular city, I have managed to find inspiration and people who share my love for God. They are rare and very precious to me. Some I […]

Witness: “Viva Cristo Rey!”

In a time when organized religion and freedom of conscience seem to be dwindling on a daily basis, we as Catholics must make every effort to remain undeterred. We know that during times of great difficulty, the Church has always responded with great men and women, who rose to the occasion. Blessed Miguel Pro is […]

NYC Cabbie: Sharing Scripture in the Taxi Garage

I wish Catholics were as devoted to reading the Bible as frequently as some Protestants. Granted, many active Catholics do read the Bible regularly, or a daily devotional of Scripture. And to be fair, not all Protestants are pouring over the Holy Book all of their time. But recently, while walking through the taxi garage […]

May It Be Evident to Everyone

May It Be Evident to Everyone

St. Paul reminds us in his Pastoral Epistle to live out our faith so that it “may be evident to everyone.”  [1 Timothy 4:14-16] How is that working for you? For example, while waiting for Mass to begin, do you analyze the people around you? Critique their choice of clothing? Hairstyle? Makeup? How they worship? […]
