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 […]

By guest writer Benny Seah. Public life began for me in a neighborhood public school. Two years on, my father transferred me to his former school at the behest of an aunt; she chided him for not having enrolled me in St. Joseph’s Junior School (SJJS) which offered a better education. On the third year, […]

A Journey Home

By guest writer Louis Felix Figueroa. My body was strung out on the couch and pain filled every part of me. This was the changing point of my life.

Novenas: The Mathematical Harmonies of Prayer

And which of you, if he ask his father bread, will he give him a stone? or a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he reach him a scorpion? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, […]

The Magnificat had included a reflection of hers that reads: “Those who seem to be spiritually dead are not always those least accessible to the divine Word; when wood is dead, […]

Evangelization and Hope

Why are we so bad at evangelizing the culture? I’ve seen this question pop up time and again, mostly in the context of asking why Catholics in particular are so bad at evangelizing, indeed at sharing the Faith at all.

Do Not Fear Gay Marriage

Gay “marriage” will threaten, snarl, huff and puff, but we should not fear. For, upon this rock Christ built His Church. It will not fall simply because evil huffs and puffs a little louder.
