What I Teach My Kids About Evolution

by

People ask me what I teach my kids about evolution. The answer is, “I teach the science, but not the ideology.” The Evolutionists say, “You are failing your kids as an educator!” No, I’m teaching my children to keep a view of reality firmly in place, the very first thing a scientist ought to do. The Creationists […]

FILTHY: obscene, vile, impure, indecent, lascivious, lewd, pornographic, raunchy, vulgar In other words, not a very nice wish for the new year.

There have been certain times in my life when I felt uncomfortable about my relationship with Mary. And by Mary I mean the mother of God. I felt that I was supposed to be close with her, as a Catholic, but I just wasn’t sure what that was supposed to look like. When my sister became pregnant […]

The Christmas Metamorphosis

by

I’m like a Christmas caterpillar. During the holidays, I put on a fuzzy sweater and eat my way through the season. By the Epiphany, the sweater is a little snug. But that’s ok. I think of it as just a phase in my evolving yuletide metamorphosis, as I pass through different stages of development on […]

Filling Soles on St. Nick’s Day

by

Growing up, Saint Nicholas Day meant three things:  the fireplace, stocking caps, and the biggest pair of shoes you could find. It started the evening before, when we finished the family rosary.  We always ended our rosary with the ‘blowing of the candle.’  Well, actually it wasn’t a candle, it was a little oil lamp […]

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 […]

The Changing Celebration of Halloween

by

Over the years of my childhood, I experienced a transformation of Halloween.  When I was young, we donned costumes and wandered the neighborhood with Dad trick-or-treating, and always had a good time.  Mom’s seamstress skills and ninja-mad crafting capabilities helped create some fantastic Halloween-night ensembles.  She sewed Dracula capes and fuzzy Daniel Boone coon-skink caps.  […]

The Ways of God for Fathers – Consistent Discipline

Thomas Aquinas writes: In God there is a primary perfection, which is that He never changes His nature. … Let us strive therefore to acquire a stability of spirit… God does not change.
