In the absence of a real deadly pandemic, tricky wording and white lies are enough to fool people. In Texas, a month ago hospitals were at capacity. That seems alarming, but a surge in deaths did not follow. We only heard about the cases. A hospital administrator and a mayor say they need refrigerator trucks for the dead bodies. This is just a shoc...

The burden of proof is on those who say COVID-19 is too dangerous for our healthcare system to handle. The original measures to slow the spread were meant to prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed. The only places that were overwhelmed were inner city hospitals where, arguably, there was widespread malpractice: putting patient...

Even as states and nations continue to open up while not seeing a spike in COVID-19 cases and deaths, lockdown measures are still in effect across the nation and world. How is it that COVID-19 justifies just about everything a socialist state would do to its people? Is it just a coincidence that this virus is allowing authorities to:

You would think the right to not wear a mask would be obvious, but in today's world, fundamental liberties are being trampled upon, so I need to explain why I will not wear a mask. 

  1. It spreads bad germs worse and good germs less. Masks cause me, and most other people to touch our faces more than we normally would because masks itch and need...

There is so much information regarding SARS-CoV-2, I think it's necessary to share the info that flies below the radar. Here are some widely-respected doctors who are saying the lockdown of our society is a bad idea, and providing the data to back up their position.

Masses are canceled in dioceses across our land due to a pandemic that needs no introduction, but apparently the other causes of death in the U.S. need re-introduction: heart disease - about 655,000 deaths per year; abortion - about 638,000 per year; cancer - about 600,000; the common flu - about 59,000; pneumonia, which has a death rate of 10 perc...

Just as a refresher, I'd like to give a brief overlook of what Rambling Spirit magazine is about, and its unique role in young adult communities and the new evangelization.

Catholicism is not just about faith and morals -- it's not something that can be confined within our church walls on Sunday -- rather, our religion offers a full worldview tha...

Catholic culture is an elusive term. It is -- by definition -- the most nuanced, most diverse, most complex culture on the planet. Catholics practice their faith freely in some areas and underground in others. They're among the poor and the rich. Indian Catholics are completely different from American Catholics. In fact, Filipino Catholics have dif...

A man walks down the main street of a traditional American town. He sees a pharmacy, a bank, a few restaurants, a police office and a church. Does it occur to him that a grand history of ideas has come together in the place that is right before his eyes? Or does he just see it all working together by chance? 

We could go into deeper detail abou...

Many of us millennials chose a profession at a young age, pursued the pertaining academic path, and then began a career in that profession that will consume the greater part of our life. We went to college to learn a trade, not to become educated. Our true education will come from life experience, because our academic education just gave we what we...

The Giants lost yet another close game to end their season 5-11. As upsetting as this is, there are still some positive things to remember. I strongly believe that those who have gone through adversity together grow stronger together. Seven of the Giants' 11 losses this season were by one score or less; so if any team knows adversity, it's this 201...

There are countless articles online about how to write well, and most of them recommend starting with some sort of structure, outline or formula. Sure, you can follow their advice, but to me it’s all just a bunch of poppycock.

Here’s why. First of all, it makes no sense to start with a plan for your article because you need to have an idea to write...

Have you ever noticed how people like to plan just about everything? I mean everything from what we’re going to do for a career to where we’re going on vacation next year; it all hinges upon our plans.  Even things we know are out of our control, like the weather and sports scores, are fair game when it comes to harmonizing our will with the future...

Future me, I hope you still kneel and pray before bed at night.
I hope you’re still pursuing your dreams, so my mentors turn out right
when they say you have a gift that needs a lot of love;
a gift that can only shine forth if you let that girl go,

because eventually you’ll have to choose one

or the other. My God, it’s about time to move on.
Good rid...

One of the criticisms I've gotten about Rambling Spirit is that it will inevitably have a slant or spin to it, like so many publications do. But I say that doesn't have to be the case. I truly believe a publication can wholeheartedly, objectively and impartially represent any point of view it chooses, and offer comprehensive articles on any topic t...
