  • Paying Taxes to Caesar
    on Jun 4, 2013 in Christian Living
    Today’s Gospel reading comes from Mark, wherein the Pharisees begin by complimenting Jesus and then in their duplicity asking Jesus if it is lawful or right to pay taxes to Caesar.  Mark tells us that Jesus knows “their hypocrisy”...
  • Man’s Hunger for God
    on May 30, 2013 in Christian Living
    In anticipation for the Feast of the Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I was reflecting on the line from Mary’s Magnificat.  A whole book could be written on this canticle, but this line in particular hit me: “He has filled the hung...
  • Pope Benedict XVI Shocks the World, Resigns
    on Feb 11, 2013 in Christian Living
    This morning, much to the shock of the world, Pope Benedict XVI announced his resignation from the papacy (only the ninth Supreme Pontiff to ever do so).  Let us begin by thanking the Pope for his wonderful 8 years of service and praying for his det...
  • What Went Wrong in the Presidential Election?
    on Nov 8, 2012 in Uncategorized
    Many Christians are pointing fingers after the presidential election – at Christian/Catholic voters who voted third party, at lower than expected voter turn-out rates.  But I know exactly whose fault it is that the United States chose a pro-aborti...
  • Archbishop Fulton Sheen becomes Venerable Sheen!
    on Jun 28, 2012 in Catholic Living The Saints
    Today the Vatican announced that Servant of God Archbishop Fulton Sheen has been recognized as Pope Benedict as Venerable!  This an exciting development because it brings him one step closer to canonization.  For those unfamiliar with the Archbisho...
  • Why Do We Pray to Mary?Since Catholics pray to Mary we’re sometimes accused of mariolatry, or the worship of Mary.  Yet nothing could be further to the truth.  Everything that begins with Mary always ends with Jesus, and so it is with prayer as well. We pray to the...
  • St. Francis de Sales On Living For and Loving God
    on Jan 24, 2012 in Catholic Living
    Today the Church celebrates the life of St. Francis de Sales.  If you’ve ever read anything by him (he’s most famous for Introduction to the Devout Life and Treatise on the Love of God), then you’ve experienced his infectious love...
  • Jesus’ Call from the Cross
    on Jan 15, 2012 in Christian Living The Cross
    Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about the Cross and how painful it must have been for Jesus.  Not just physically, and not just because of the seeming separation He felt from His Father which made Him cry out, “My God, My God, why have Y...
  • Mary, Mother of God
    on Jan 1, 2012 in Christian Living
    Today the Church celebrates the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God!  It’s so fitting that a week after we celebrate the birth of Christ our King we then celebrate our Queen Mother, who gave Him to us.  Just as certain Old Testament figures fore...
  • The Power of Prayer for Those We Love
    on Dec 19, 2011 in Christian Living prayer
    For most of my life I didn’t understand the point of prayer.  God knows the future, I can’t change His will – why bother praying?  In Making Time for Prayer I talked a little about why prayer matters for us as individuals, but jus...
