The Difference Between Hockey, Football, and Soccer is Catholicism

[ 22 ] April 1, AD 2014 |

*Warning* I’m an unabashed fan of hockey. I am biased, and I do believe hockey is not only the best sport but the most analogous to Catholicism. Imagine my delight when I discovered Alyssa Bormes book, “The Catechism of Hockey,” which is published by The American Chesterton Society. It’s a delightful book, but maybe more […]

Proclamation, Gathering and the Obstacles of the New Evangelization

Proclamation, Gathering and the Obstacles of the New Evangelization
