  • Inspired
    on Mar 7, 2010 in Lent
    Lent is not my favorite liturgical season.  Something happened yesterday that inspired me, however, and gave me a fresh perspective.  My 19 year old son was home from college on Spring Break and we had lunch with a neighborhood friend of hi...

  • Haiti
    on Jan 17, 2010
    Obviously, what happened in Haiti is horrific. Tragedies like this punctuate our responsibilities not only as Christians, but as Americans in possession of most of the world's wealth and resources. Christ commands us to feed, clothe and care for ou...
  • Brit Hume: Tiger Woods should become Christian to be forgiven
    on Jan 5, 2010
    Provocative, shocking and even refreshing to hear a newsman have the gumption to make such a statement. He will be lambasted by many for it and I personally think it shows bad judgment to trash Bhuddism to make a point that could just as easily (and...

  • The Secret is in the Preparation
    on Jan 2, 2010 in Incarnation Grace Christmas Advent

    on Jan 2, 2010 in Chesterton Christmas
    I heard Christmas music on the radio and in the malls this year -- a day or so before Thanksgiving. I saw some weird lawn art too: Santa in a bass boat, the Grinch, and even an inflatable manger scene. I don't know where a person buys that stuff, but...
  • "To suffer and be despised for Thee"
    on Dec 14, 2009 in John of the Cross Suffering
    Today, December 14, is the memorial of St. John of the Cross (1542-1591).  He was proclaimed a doctor of the Church by Pius XI in 1926.  Teresa of Avila persuaded John to help her reform the Carmelite order and in so doing, he suffered...
  • Encountering the Numinous in the Sacraments
    on Dec 13, 2009 in Sacraments Numinous Grace
    In the past weeks, I have had a few occasions to relay to friends my personal experiences of having received grace through the sacraments.  Their verbal and non-verbal responses to what I said revealed their incredu...
  • Encountering the Numinous (continued)In a recent post, I mentioned the three things that all of the major religions have in common from the Introduction to The Problem of Pain, a classic C.S. Lewis work.  They are: [1] an awareness of the numinous (or supernatural) e...
