Wise Men, The Nothingness of Eastern Religions, and the Somethingness of Christianity

A brilliant and valiant teacher named John Senior is continuing to be discovered by those startled by today’s shadowy darkness, especially through a newly published biography. Interestingly, Senior could be described as an apostle of shadows, not because shadows are not real but because they point to the fact that things are real. How else could ...

Three Simple Ways To Evangelize (And Grow in Faith)

If you clicked on this article because you thought you had stumbled onto a list of “silver bullet” ideas for easily evangelizing your friends, co-workers, and family members, I am sorry to say you are going to be disappointed.

Purpose. Meaning. Destiny.

My conversion to the Catholic faith came about largely through the witness of one of my (public) high school teachers. He is a man of God who understands profoundly that the knowledge of Truth is the end goal of all education. There were many things my teacher said that stood out to me and remain in my memory to this day. Few of them stand out as m...

The Brown Robed Man

Over the years, St. Francis has borne more than his fair share of controversy. As a provocative figure in his time, he used his popularity/notoriety to reinvigorate and rebuild the Church. In the centuries following his death, the nature and scope of his personal mission and that of the religious order he founded became points of heated debate. The...

Founding Fathers – Isaac Jogues and John de Brebeuf

Most often when an American thinks of the Founding Fathers names such as Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, or George Washington are the first to be considered.

The Lesser of Two Evils: A Drinking Game

It’s been a complaint of that small but admirably spunky demographic of Christians Who Care About Being Christian that, every election, we are forced to pick between the lesser of two evil candidates. This, at least, is the rallying cry of the oddly unconflicted pro-Trump Christian pie-slice, who cry -- now on sidewalks, now on Facebook -- that w...

Where Have All The Reasonable MEN Gone?

“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth—in a word, to know himself—so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.” (Fides et Ratio, Encyclical Letter, Pope S...

The TRAUMA of Divorce and The Struggle of Pornography Addiction

When Chris came to me for help for his pornography addiction he sincerely wanted to uncover and resolve the root causes of his addiction.  He had read stories about people addicted to pornography and sex who as children had been abused, neglected, or were raised by alcoholics.  Because he had experienced none of these traumas in his life he could...

The Little Flower Is Tougher Than You

There’s a rumor that Pius XI, a pope with a deep devotion to St. Therese of Lisieux – the young, bourgeois, French girl who became the sweetheart of the Catholic world shortly after her death in 1897 – once said of the little saint: “This is a manly soul, a great man.”  I don’t know if that’s exactly true (in fact, I can’t find any...
