Do We Live in the Worst Times?

People genuinely ask, “do we live in the worst time in human history?” The typical response, to diminish this thought, is summed up well by Bl. John Henry Newman, in his sermon, “The Infidelity of the Future”: “I know that all times are perilous, and that in every time serious and anxious minds, alive to the honour of God and the needs of...

Facing “Reformation Day” This Halloween

In an unhappy convergence, the Reformation began on the vigil of All Saints or All Hallows Eve 500 years ago today. Not much happened that day, just a public communication of a bunch of theses. The Germans did not dress up or enjoy bobbing for apples. But, maybe a few spooks did get out of the bag. Martin Luther faced difficult choices as he fac...

Can a Catholic be a Conservative?

One thing about the 2016 election that I am especially grateful for is how it caused principled conservatives to do some soul searching.  Faced with a candidate who was neither principled nor—let’s be honest—all that conservative, they could not help but question how far they would extend their allegiance. Some, I presume, even questioned th...

What’s Wrong with the Church

It is widely reported that when posed the question “What’s wrong with the world?” by a British publication, Catholic author and commentator G.K. Chesterton responded simply: “I am.” If only we all had such clear-minded humility. Of course, the question posed to Chesterton was no more significant in his day than it is now, or at any ...

Aside from his commendable taste in cigars (smoking a stogie at his recommendation as of this writing), Michael is a man of faith and in the richest sense of the phrase, he is one of those Catholic ...

Proud to Be A Papist!

Since the time of the English Reformation to even this day, Catholics have been derided as “Papists” for their loyalty to the pronouncements of the Pope and the Church’s Magisterium—over and above, say, the pronouncements of other Christian confessions or the supreme law of the land (i.e., our constitution).  Even in our own country the te...

Dear Class of 2017…

Dear Men of The Class of 2017: Somehow it’s already June, so most of you have been through commencement by this point. Your high school classes, teachers, and friends are already a distant memory. You’re likely enjoying the long summer days doing anything but school work. Many of you are now looking ahead to college, or perhaps a job. You pr...

One Key to Success in All Things

Walking through the door and hearing “daddy’s home!” is a tremendous experience. Whatever the circumstances of my day, or entry, they are immediately required to disappear. What matters in that moment is being present to my family, and being fully present is a task I hope to take into every area of my life. I have often heard stories about...

A Place on Earth: The Desire for Land and Its Limits

Land has a central place in the Bible. We spring from it and are placed within it deliberately by God: Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being. And the Lord God planted a garden in Eden, in the east; and there he put the man whom he had formed (G...
