The Catholic Stance in a World Off Its Axis

We sat under the moon at Monreau Seminary on the campus of Notre Dame; seven college men from the University of St. Thomas and one holy priest. As we re-hashed our weeklong conference on leadership in Catholic education, our conversation led to many cultural tragedies that find rationalization in academia: man-hating feminism, gender identity co...

Four Tips For Discerning Your Vocation

One of the blessings of teaching religion to high schoolers is that I get to witness to how God has transformed my life. This comes up in various ways through a myriad of lessons in all the grades I teach. Over the years, one particular topic, one special piece of advice, has resurfaced in various contexts: discerning one’s vocation. Everyone mus...

Take Up Your Cross

One of my favorite quotes from G.K. Chesterton – or from anyone for that matter – accurately distills the distinguishing characteristic of essentially every critique of the Christian paradigm and unapologetically defends that very paradigm in the space of less than twenty words. In fact, my description of the quote is already longer than the qu...

As The Family So The Church

Mr. Brian Jones The political philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre once observed that the contemporary breakdown of communal and familial life in the West is frequently attributed to the wrong cause. Many commentators have argued that the disintegration of our culture, and its rapidly increased secularizing power, has been the result of the loss of re...

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 ...

What My DAD Taught Me About Strength

Four hundred pounds is a lot of weight by any estimation. When loaded on a barbell resting on one’s back, four hundred pounds is unquestionably heavy. Now, do a set of squats with that weight. Such a feat relatively few people ever have the strength, ability, or desire to even attempt. Yet, this was the goal my dad had set for himself for his ...

Catholic Churches to Men: “You’re Not Welcome Here.”

  This article is an excerpt from "Answers to The Catholic Man Crisis" available HERE   Intrigued by something called the “men’s rights movement” I ordered some books by the activists of the movement (all by women, interestingly). Offering an alternative theory for why men are absent, aloof, and irresponsible, they claim men are n...

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...

Transgenderism and the Last Acceptable Phobia

Americans are accustomed to trans-truth. Politicians openly lie. The media regularly fabricates. Moral relativism commonly falsifies. It is all part of the plan. Part of the agenda. And high on the trans-truth trajectory is transgender normalization and discrimination. From North Carolina’s bathroom bill, to retailers like Target establishing pol...

The Public Square Needs Catholic Men

Unless you have been hidden away in a cave for the last year, you probably do not need me to tell you that our body politic is facing a serious crisis. The political events of the last year have been, in large part, disheartening. The reasons for this are many and varied; notable among them is a decline in religious faith. Of great concern also is ...
