Did You Run Out of Sins?

by

Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman once said: “Faith is illuminative, not operative; it does not force obedience, though it increases responsibility; it heightens guilt, but it does not prevent sin. The will is the source of action.” If the will is the source of action and faith is illuminative because it comes from God, then […]

Movie Review: Gravity

by

“Just when you thought it was safe to go back in space…,” a terrifying movie like “Gravity” hits you in the face. “Gravity” is one of those films that’s truly an experience that one undergoes: one of the tensest time periods ever spent in a cinema. This is an extremely uncomfortable film. Space is the […]

Reflections for Sunday, November 17, 2013

Meditation and Questions for Reflection or Group Discussion (Malachi 3:19-20; Psalm 98:5-9; 2 Thessalonians 3:7-12; Luke 21:5-19) Joining All Creation in Praising the Lord Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth. (Psalm 98:4) Rivers “clapping their hands.” Mountains “shouting for joy.” What extraordinary images these poetic descriptions of nature evoke for us! These […]

We Must Evangelize

by

It’s the great dilemma for Catholics. We know that we are to share Christ. We are to go into the highways and byways and even into the Internet superhighway and tell the world about Jesus Christ and His Church. But we don’t know what to do about that troublesome word: proselytizing. Evangelism is good. Proselytizing is bad. […]

Abortion Advocates Vocally Frustrated at the UN

by

Advocates for abortion at the UN are vocally frustrated with their lack of advancement since the Cairo conference on population twenty years ago. This becomes increasing evident as they gear up for two big events in the coming year. Next year will see not only the twentieth anniversary of Cairo but the negotiation of a […]

Named Haiyan (or Yolanda), the typhoon is reportedly the strongest ever recorded in history, with winds of 195 miles per hour and gusts up to 235 mph. Early reports coming out of the country say that as many as 10,000 people lost […]

Defeating Autism: Joseph at Year Three in Boy Scouting

by

This is a story about defeating autism, the practical attainment of hope for devastated parents, and a whole new way of approaching a scourge upon our beloved children. Our son, Joseph, happens to be its protagonist; but the joyful hope in this story resides in the certainty that it is a template into which parents […]

Sinner’s Guide to Natural Family Planning: Interviewing Simcha Fisher

by

Simcha Fisher’s book, The Sinner’s Guide to Natural Family Planning, is still sitting pretty in the Top 10 on Amazon’s list of Catholic books. The incredible interest in the book isn’t surprising since frank, balanced conversations about natural family planning –- the only method of spacing children approved by the Catholic Church –- are desperately […]

The Ways of God for Fathers – Foreknowledge

by

St. Thomas Aquinas writes: God foresees with prudence all future things, good or bad. Before they happen, He knows them and sees the good or evil that will result from them. This would seem pretty difficult to imitate at first glance; after all we can’t predict the future. On the other hand, I recently read […]

Creating a Monastery in your Catholic Homeschool in 10 Steps

When I was in college, I prayed and discerned a vocation to become a sister or a nun.  I was enthralled by the Carmelite Sisters of the Sacred Heart, since I had had the honor of working with and forthem at a Catholic School in Florida.  Fortunately for me, I was assigned to work with […]

ObamaCare: Advancing the Abortion Industry

by

On a Friday night back in December 2009, Senate Majority Leader Reid was in tense negotiations with then-Senator Ben Nelson of Nebraska, as Reid desperately needed Nelson’s vote to secure Senate passage of ObamaCare. Finally, Nelson had what Politico described as a “breakthrough” that lead to a deal, as Politico reported a few days later. […]

Sing to the Lord a New Song

by

“Sing to the Lord a new song” (Psalm 98:1). A reflection on today’s Sacred Scripture: Today’s Responsorial Psalm speaks of the freshness of prayer we experience with a new life in Christ. Our prayers of petition become enhanced by prayers of praise—that is, God becomes the object of our prayers and we begin to honor […]

Syria – Death and Destruction in a Christian Town

Horrific details are emerging of atrocities carried out in a Christian town in Syria in what is being seen as the worst act of anti-Christian persecution since the war in Syria began. Inhabitants of Sadad, near Homs, who fled the largely Syrian Orthodox town when rebels attacked last month, are now returning home to discover […]
