Is this where I tell you how amazing I am and list all my impressive accomplishments? I am just a guy. On a daily basis I betray God and the Faith I claim to profess through thought and deed forcing me to beg His forgiveness on an often weekly basis. All of my talents are unearned and all of my accomplishments merit me nothing. I am completely at the Divine Mercy of Jesus the Redeemer who is willing to erase my daily sins when I am sensible enough to confess them.

It’s Spring, Let’s All Freak Out About Modesty!

[ 6 ] April 1, AD 2014 |

It finally seems like the harsh winter is coming to a close. It sure has been a rough one, hasn’t it? All those frigid temperatures and mountains of snow… Anyways, now we can look forward to warmer weather and the promise of summer peaking over the horizon. Another thing we can look forward to is […]

Catholic “Baby Machines”

Catholic “Baby Machines”

[ 6 ] March 26, AD 2014 |

We’ve all heard the comments. If you are the parents of more than 2.5 children or come from a family of more than 2.5 siblings, then you’ve heard something at some point in your life. It can be a nod and a wink with a sarcastic “You guys are busy”, as if having five children […]

Mass Confusion

Mass Confusion

[ 15 ] January 28, AD 2014 |

I’ve been purposefully sitting out of the Pope Francis media frenzy ever since it started. I wanted to watch and see what happened instead of posting a knee-jerk reaction to every gesture the pontiff made, speculating on his authenticity and whether or not he would ordain the closest lesbian he could find or banish the […]

A Different Set of New Year’s Resolutions

A Different Set of New Year’s Resolutions

[ 1 ] December 31, AD 2013 |

Is the holiday season over yet? Have we spent some good time breathlessly visiting family, getting in all those traditions, whirling from uncle to brother to cousin? I certainly have, but I have to tell ya, I’m also looking forward to getting back to the regular old routine. All this visiting and spending time with […]

As the day of Christ’s birth hurtles towards us, it is definitely easy to get caught up in the spin of things. Retailers, desperate to meet their bottom line and land a huge haul this shopping season, barrage us with seemingly great offers on all kinds of interesting items. Some are actually great gifts, others […]

Cardinal Dolan, Can You Please Clarify?

Cardinal Dolan, Can You Please Clarify?

[ 8 ] December 4, AD 2013 |

So I have to admit I’m pretty confused about something one of the leaders of the Church recently said. It seems to be the thing to do lately, so I might as well hop on the bandwagon. I’m not mad about something Pope Francis said, though. I know he’s been in the press a lot […]

God Loves You: Nobody Cares

God Loves You: Nobody Cares

[ 17 ] November 14, AD 2013 |

Disclaimer: This article is going to sound cynical. It might even sound anti-Christian. Please stick with it. There is a point. I am sarcastic and sometimes offensive. Again, there is an overall point. This New Evangelization thing in the Church is pretty cool, you gotta admit. I mean, JPII said it’s time for the Church […]

Tyrannical Charity

Tyrannical Charity

[ 1 ] November 6, AD 2013 |

Among the many things that Christ taught His disciples, charity is one of the principles focus groups in office buildings would label as a “core value.” He told us to love one another as we love ourselves, to clothe the naked and feed the hungry. Through a parable, He admonished those of us who ostentatiously […]

Catholicism: The Only True Extremism Part II

[ 3 ] August 20, AD 2013 |

“If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.”  Jesus (John 15:18-19) “Then they will hand you over to […]

Catholicism: The Only True Extremism, Part I

[ 3 ] August 1, AD 2013 |

In today’s ideologically polarized society, the term “extremist” is bandied about with increasing frequency by pundits, politicians from both sides of the aisle, and bureaucrats in order to paint those with opposing beliefs as dangerous and untrustworthy, as holding a belief that is outside the acceptable realm of “mainstream thinking.” The tactic of socially eliminating […]

The Cross of Being Pro-Life

  My wife and I recently attended the funeral for one of our children. This was the child that we recently lost in the fifth miscarriage/stillbirth in a row. After five different losses, along with five accompanying headstones in a single plot in our parish cemetery, the emotional process doesn’t necessarily get easier, but, only […]
