Why I Should Move to North Dakota

by

I don’t have a paying job at this time, but I am very busy. Even though I no longer homeschool and my girls are over ten, my house is messy. I spend most of my day on Facebook and Twitter. Why? Christina, my daughter, is growing up in a world where no one invites her […]

The Fallacy of Solo Scriptura

by

I must have been around four years old when I was first paraded in front of the church to sing with my sister.  The song was “The B-I-B-L-E,” and I belted the words out with all the zeal I could muster.  The B-I-B-L-E, yes that’s the book for me; I stand alone on the Word […]

Will Advancements in IVF Ever Lead to Acceptance By the Church?

by

For many years now, pro-life leaders have pointed to the massive loss of life that comes with in vitro fertilization (IVF) as one of the key evils of the procedure.  Additionally, the extreme cost of the procedure, the likelihood of multiple embryos implanting resulting in selective reduction abortions, and health risks to both mother and […]

Helping the Poor Through Catholic Microfinance

by

One of the constant themes of Pope Francis’ pontificate is his emphasis on reaching out to the poor and the marginalized. Those who are “least” in this world are dear to the Holy Father’s heart and he uses every opportunity to exhort believers to go out from beyond the four walls of our churches and […]

The Religious Art of Daniel Mitsui

by

Intricate details and deep meaning characterize Daniel Mitsui’s religious art, which he renders by hand using ink on paper or vellum. Mitsui draws biblical subjects and saints according to the conventions of traditional iconography. More than being just representations of scenes and persons, Mitsui’s works are visual theological treatises. For example, his Pentecost shows not only tongues […]

Ten Suggestions for Being Contemplative in a Busy World

I sat in my kitchen on the morning of Labor Day, watching and listening to the activity around me. My husband and I, along with our three youngest children, had arrived home on the previous evening from a three-week vacation in Newfoundland and this was the first time that the family (nine of the ten […]

Why I Can’t Go Back to Being Pro-Choice

-Where I was ten years ago- I told my future husband on a date in 2004: “My sister had half of her thyroid removed because she had parasitic cells growing on it. Was she wrong to have the surgery done so that she could live? Of course not and it’s the same with abortion.” I […]

A Person’s a Person, No Matter How Small

by

“Imagine in a thousand years someone doing IVF with a long-frozen embryo just to see what a 21st century – or, in this case, 20th century – human being was like. Just keeping them frozen – kicking the can down the road a little farther – seems wrong to me. . . . If you […]

The Cross Focuses the Human Condition

by

The lesson of Dostoyevsky’s works can be summed up like this: It is the Cross that focuses the human condition in all its bitterness and all its horror, and it is the Resurrection that proclaims the final response of God; His promise of freedom from sin, the overcoming of death, and abundant life at last.

The Church is Our Mother

by

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Today I wish to continue our catechesis on the Church by reflecting on an image used by the early Fathers and the Second Vatican Council: the Church as our Mother. By reflecting on the human experience of maternity, we understand that the Church is like our own Mothers. First, like our […]

"Thank goodness our government hasn't taken over any pencil companies yet."

“Thank goodness our government hasn’t taken over any pencil companies yet.”

by

A Pencil’s Point Now is a good time to revisit the 1958 essay in which Leonard Read examined how a pencil is made — and how it is miraculous that a pencil is made at all. The standard pencil begins when a cedar is cut down. Ropes and gear tug it onto the bed of […]

U.S. Supreme Court to Look at RU-486 Drug Abortions

by

When RU-486, the abortion pill, was approved in the U.S. — after a scandalous campaign of political arm-twisting, media-pressure, and fudging of trial data by abortionists — it came with strict regulations. Now the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether states can require abortionists to follow those safety measures. A fascinating history of the multi-year […]

Christian Love Soars to the Heights of Mountain Peaks and the Realm of Angels

If you go into western Canada’s Jasper National Park, you may see the beautiful and majestic Mount Edith Cavell.  The mountain’s namesake was the daughter of an Anglican vicar. Edith Cavell (1865-1915) was a British nurse and patriot during the 1st World War. Although she tended wounded soldiers on both sides at the Berkendael Medical […]

She told the press that she explained to him that “hundreds of children” had been killed in Syria and that her defense of going into that country was that the killing […]

Bad Reviews are Good for the Soul

I vividly recall the first really negative review I received on a book. It was for a particular title in the All Things Girl series and the young person who wrote it was fairly scathing in what she said. She identified herself as one of three sisters who ranged in age from 10 to 15. […]

What I Learned About Marriage at the Nursing Home

by

Working at a nursing home, I met a married couple that really defined for me what marriage means. He was wheelchair dependent. He had had a stroke and lost all movement in his right leg and arm. He was still alert though. He’d tease the staff and tell us all sorts of stories. He’d rant about how […]
