In regards to the child sex abuse allegations directed at the Church, there are two problems that are often overlooked, two problems that would in no way compromise the truth if a person were to point them out, but which would be devastating to the mainstream progressive—and a large part of the Catholic—media's narrative of the whole scandal; devas...

People often say the Bible is a love story between God and humanity. It's a very beautiful, heartfelt analogy. However, what isn't often acknowledged is the fact that if the Bible---and subsequently life itself---is about a romantic relationship with God, then why don't we talk more about how our hearts can be broken by God?

Heart, mind, and soul, when you get to the truth of the matter, are one and the same. Why do we separate them? Why do we appeal so much to the heart one day, the mind another day, and our moral sense another day?

We live in an age of seekers, and the time is ripe for Catholic journalists to s...

Every now and then I like to chime in on what's happening in the political arena. This time around, can I afford to ignore the rumors spinning around this "net neutrality" legislation that is expected to be approved tomorrow? I'm not going to get into the detail of net neutrality and the use or misuse of the term. Instead, I think it's better to lo...

​​On nature's eve, Winter arrives with a performance that can only be hers. The characters who once stood in the spotlight have all removed their lively, colorful costumes and have stepped aside. Many in the audience think this is the intermission, the time to rest and refocus. Nature's stage is empty, or so it appears. For the acts of Spring, Summ...

In recent years there has been constant chatter in the Catholic Church about the New Evangelization. Every now and then, amidst the chatter, someone asks, "What exactly is it?"

I recently heard a brief description: Spreading the Gospel with new ardor, expression and methods. Since there is so much emphasis on the millennial generation's use of soc...

It's too simplistic to say big government is the problem, yet there are too many factors contributing to the bureaucracy's inefficiency and scrutiny that you can't really point to any individual -- even if that individual is an IRS agent who admonishes you for your tax return being a few hundred dollars off. It is, after all, the government's job t...
