Catholic Canines

[ 1 ] October 22, AD 2014 |

It’s a very long story, but suffice it to say, my husband and I are planning to bring home a dog at the end of this week. Many people have expressed interest (to put it nicely) in why we are bringing home a dog when we do not yet have and are not currently expecting […]

Slow Down and Think

Slow Down and Think

[ 1 ] October 21, AD 2014 |

By the time this post will actually be present on the good old internet, the Synod on the Family currently taking place in Rome will have concluded. While it might to you, then, seem a bit dated for me to write a commentary on a Synod that is over and probably will have fallen out […]

The Grace of Yes: A Review

The Grace of Yes: A Review

[ 1 ] October 20, AD 2014 |

The cover appropriately displays a fish out of water. Ever felt like that? Like you were in over your head? Like you were way outside of your comfort zone? Then this book is for you! Part spiritual memoir/part advice book, like many of Lisa Hendey’s writings, it takes you to the heart of a life […]

Gratitude, Whos, and Whats

Gratitude, Whos, and Whats

[ 1 ] October 19, AD 2014 |

Everyone likes to hear the words, “Thank you.” Here is why deep down we all recognize a personal God.

I first came across the artistry of Eliot Morris when I attended a talk by Matthew Kelly from Dynamic Catholic. In between Matthew’s intriguing prose, Eliot Morris graced our eardrums with his poetry and guitar strumming. Throughout the day, the two preached with incredible melody, so much so I couldn’t decide which one my soul […]

Pope Francis Marrying Sinners Is No Surprise

Pope Francis Marrying Sinners Is No Surprise

[ 3 ] October 18, AD 2014 |

Last month Pope Francis seemed to shock the world by marrying twenty couples in a ceremony at St Peter’s Basilica. Aside from the fact that Popes don’t get the opportunity to preside at weddings all that often, what provided the real shock value was that amongst the couples, some had cohabited, one had a child […]

Death With Dignity or Assisted Suicide?

Death With Dignity or Assisted Suicide?

[ 5 ] October 15, AD 2014 |

Last week, a viral story started making the rounds about a young woman named Brittany Maynard, a 29 year-old newlywed who was diagnosed with brain cancer in January. After an initial diagnosis of having possibly ten years left to live, her doctors later revised the estimation (in light of the severity of her cancer) to six months. […]

Flawless or Holiness; What’s a Parent to Do?

Flawless or Holiness; What’s a Parent to Do?

[ 2 ] October 15, AD 2014 |

As a new parent, I have quickly noticed that everyone has an opinion about the best way to raise my child. Authors, other parents, parishioners, and even strangers on the street are quick to offer advice or criticism of my parenting. As if this were not enough, society tells parents that they are not smart […]

Hawking and the Heavens

Hawking and the Heavens

[ 6 ] October 14, AD 2014 |

Chesterton once observed that men generally have two attitudes towards dogma: some consciously recognize their reliance upon it, and others attempt to deny that reliance. He concluded that, ironically, it is the latter who are ultimately the more dogmatic. I was reminded of this observation a few weeks ago [1], when I saw the latest […]

Synod Psych Up

Synod Psych Up

[ 1 ] October 14, AD 2014 |

Much has been said about the Synod on the Family, underway in Rome right now. Ink has been spilled, opinions made, worry and confusion abound. We hear the drama between bishops, opinions from both sides of the spectrum. Frustration, fear, hope and excitement, all tied together in these historic weeks. As a young, newly married […]
