The Last Best New Year’s Resolution

by

I suggest making one last resolution for the New Year: stop making them.  Within the first month, most people have broken their resolutions anyways.  Ask any health club manager about the January spike that levels out by February.  You don’t need the first day of January to improve your life; you need God.  Life is […]

Our children are often the impetus that draws us closer to God.  In between diapers, sleepless nights and planning for college, parents contemplate something more. For many poorly catechized Catholics, however, the “something more” is a bit intimidating. Our children have souls that need more than the ABC’s and a good college fund, but where […]

Suppose your son is a sixth grader and his male teacher just married another man.  If it happens at a Catholic school, the teacher would be fired as has happened at schools in Ohio and California. If it is at a public school, it is likely a non-issue to administrators. In the latter case, you […]
