We Need the Voice of St. John Paul II

We need the voice of St. John Paul II in this day of superficiality, where we seem to care about how things look more than how they actually are, we experience the breakdown of the human person to the point of public approval of the objectification of men and women as a form of entertainment, and […]

The Great Lie: Relativism and False Freedom Left Me Depressed

The saddest I have ever been was when I was living on the beach in Destin, Fl. I had the beach as my front yard with the Gulf of Mexico beyond that and nothing between my view of the water but the white sand. On top of that, I had money, drugs, alcohol, parties, and […]

God Can Even Overcome Our Imperfect Parenting

God is interested in your love life

The Wedding Feast at Cana miracle is a manifestation of more than just Christ’s power. The story also allows us to see our Blessed Mother’s intercessory influence, Jesus’ approval of human marriage, and His care for humanity to the point of assisting us even with the more mundane items such as wine at a wedding […]

A Christmas Carol & Detachment

I recently attended a live performance of the Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol. The cast did an excellent job portraying the well-known tale in a new and creative way while remaining diligently faithful to the book. This fidelity to the authentic work allowed for the original themes, the ones that Dickens intended to highlight, to shine […]

Read the Bible By Going To Mass

I remember an impactful talk given by Dr. Scott Hahn in an Atlanta home a little less then a year ago.

Parents Are An Image of God

The image of God that parents can portray is meant to make a mark in the hearts and memories of the children it serves. In this way, parents will do much more in the lives of their kids by leaving with them a living impression of God in a way that is impossible for anything […]

One Rule To Follow To Grow In Holiness

The Theological Virtue of Hope helps us to see that we are not made for this world and our true home is waiting for us in heaven. However, we are not meant to simply sit on the side of the road and wait until we are called home. We are meant to know, love, and […]
