Keep Your Chocolate this Lent. Give Up Your Heart.

“What are you giving up for Lent?”  We are often asked this question by fellow Catholics as the Lenten season approaches.  In response, many of us are tempted to hang our heads in shame, as we experience a rush of “Catholic guilt” come over us.  “Oh no!”, we think, “Lent is less than a week out and I haven’t decided what to ...

A Marriage Creed: Professing and Defending Truth in a Time of Confusion

Listen to the audio version here! Creeds help us not only to understand what we believe, but also to profess it, strengthening our faith. One tenant of Catholic belief suffers attack more than any other right now: marriage and family life. Not only do people attack, both within and out of the Church, but many are just downright ignoring ...

A Catholic Man’s Response to #MeToo

Let’s begin this article with a controversial statement: Toxic masculinity is real and has been since near the beginning of human existence. (Note: so too has toxic femininity, but it’s not the topic of this article.)  Many men hate this indictment and resist it.  After all, who wants to be painted with the same broad brush that touches sexua...

How Will You Respond to Christmas?

Msgr. Romano Guardini said of the birth of Christ that “the glorification of that joyous happening will never be muted on this earth” (The Rosary of Our Lady, 89).  Even while Christmas has become highly commercialized, highly secularized and highly sentimentalized, Msgr. Guardini’s words nonetheless remain true.  There will always be humbl...

Are Feelings Right or Wrong?

Catholic intellectual giant G.K. Chesterton famously wrote in Orthodoxy that “[t]he madman is not the man who has lost his reason.  The madman is the man who has lost everything except his reason.”  Most serious Catholics who have heard these words would say they agree.  Yet, many of us (myself included) make an idol of reason—clinging tig...

Let’s Talk About Sex: Moral Decay and Hope

Pope Benedict XVI once famously wrote: “What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too...” The Holy Father’s wise statement was made in the context of allowing for wider use of the Traditional Latin Mass, although his words can be applied more broadly. This maxim is nowhere more evident than in the shamefully fla...

A Call to Pastors: Reach Out to Your Men

You guys all know, if you happen to go to Mass on a regular basis, that the majority of faithful Mass goers are women…especially at daily Mass. Chances are, the parish is run by women as well, apart from the pastor. I remember my first assignment as a missionary and realizing there was only one or two women that would serve daily Mass. Where are ...

Dialoguing with Muslims: Where to Start?

“If someone had invited him to their church, would he have still gone out and done what he did?”  A good friend of mine posed that question to me recently about Sayfullo Saipov, the Muslim man charged with murdering eight people in the recent Manhattan terror attack.  My friend’s own answer to the question: “I don’t think that he would ...

What’s the Real Problem with the Boy Scouts Today?

Society is going to regret dissolving and confusing masculinity.  The Boy Scouts have announced that girls will be allowed to join, and will even be allowed to become Eagle Scouts, which, of course, caused a ruffle with, ya know, the Girl Scouts.   I think many people will, again, blame feminism, but as I’ve argued elsewhere, I think there are...

Fr. Miguel Juarez, A Hero for Christ

Miguel Augustin Pro Juarez was ordained a Priest in Belgium on August 31, 1925.  Already by 1926, however, due to his poor health, Fr. Miguel’s superiors sent him back to his homeland of Mexico.  Thus began his story of heroic suffering for which he is known.  Less than a month after his arrival home, “an order suppressing all public worship...
