The Call To Folly: Discerning God’s Plans For Your Life

A central fact of the Christian message is this: we Christians serve a foolish God, who calls His followers to a life of folly.  “Whoever wishes to come after me”, He says, “must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me” (Mt 16:24).  To where must we follow him?  To Golgotha, the Place of the Skull.  Sounds foolish, does it not? ...

Do You Want to be Educated?

Mr. Brian Jones There will be many of them soon, and only a few, in retrospect, will be worth listening to or reading. Of course, I am speaking of the college commencement address.

Scrupulous? Be Obedient.

As one who has struggled intensely with scrupulosity, I can attest to the fact that it is a dreadful experience.  Any seriously scrupulous person, I think, would admit that preoccupation with fear of sin, questioning whether this or that act was a sin, feeling at practically every moment a need for confession, etc., so engrosses him as to deprive ...

Why Can’t I Hear God?

God does speak to us. No, I don’t mean in an apparition or with an audible voice. God has His own voice and we have to attune our hearts to Him to be able to hear it. Robert Cardinal Sarah speaks of the importance of silence in hearing God’s voice: At the heart of man there is an innate silence, for God abides in the innermost part of ev...

You Must Encounter Christ Immediately

You must encounter Christ immediately, but it doesn't have to be right away. As with all things, it should happen, and can only happen, in God's timing. Make sense? If not, allow me to explain. Consider this definition of "immediately": "without intervening medium or agent; concerning or affecting directly" (Dictionary.com, 2016).  By this defi...

The Popes have told us: “Go to Joseph, Son of David.” Devotion to St. Jo...
