The Pain of Loneliness

by

There can be a fine line between loneliness and solitude. In solitude, there is a quiet joy — time spent by yourself in nature or at eucharistic adoration, an opportunity for contemplation and prayer and just basking in a peaceful presence. I love solitude. Like so many, however, I dread loneliness. And unfortunately, I have […]

Yoga: What is So Bad About Feeling Good?

by

I’ve always had some sort of exercise routine—even if it wasn’t much of a “routine,” per se. Eating well and staying fit has been part of my life more out of necessity than desire. It rises from chronic illness rather than vanity. The catalyst for me “working out” has been my calling to live out […]

Catholic Insights Into Depression

Being father to five young boys and maintaining both a university teaching post and a busy clinical practice would seem to be a prescription for physical and emotional meltdown.

Intentional Dementia

During Mother’s last few months, conversations were extremely difficult to follow because her mind seamlessly switched from one decade to another.

Why Your Annual Appointment Matters to Your Domestic Church

I spent this morning at my OB/GYN’s office having that joyful annual experience — my gynecological exam. Oversharing? Perhaps.

The Apostolate of Suffering
