How to Be a Humble HERO in 2017

It seems that in the mind of many Christian men today, the ideas of humility and heroism are mutually exclusive. Meekness and humility are praised highly, as indeed they should be, but magnanimity and the virtues of soldiers are more or less swept under the rug. This is a great tragedy of our time. For, as Longfellow puts it in A Psalm of Life, ...

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. When it comes to living and sharing our Catholic faith, there is no “easy” way to do it. The martyrs who died for t...

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 ...

A Voter’s Guide to The Apocalypse

These are tough days to be a voting Catholic. It was easier when we could pull the “intrinsically evil” card, and feel morally justified because we had avoided voting for anyone who supported an action which -- as the American Bishops put it in their document Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship -- is "always opposed to the authentic go...

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. And indeed, they are the true Founders of the American Republic in which the Constitution and ideals of endowed rights of the individual coming from God were written into law. However, in...

Morality and Religion – The Enemies of Tyranny

This article has been submitted by guest contributor, Mr. Sean Mitchell. John Adams famously said that “our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  If we wish to to have any substantial hope for our nation’s future, we must believe these words with deep convict...

Fathers: Raise Saints

Mr. Sean Mitchell “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it” (Prov 22:6).  These words from the Holy Scriptures are especially meaningful to me, as mine and my wife’s first child, Elijah John Mitchell, was born in January of this year.  I thus find it appropriate that I should reflect on the...

Faith – The Greatest Expedition

In the late spring of 1924, George Mallory ascended the North Face of Mount Everest, attempting to be the first man to stand at the top of the world.  Whether he reached the summit is not known, because he never returned to tell us. Before departing on the expedition, a reporter asked Mallory a rather elementary question:  “Why do you want t...

The Mountains Are Calling, and I Must Go

There are few things more difficult for the climber than attempting to answer the question of why he climbs. Yet there are few things more intuitive for him than the need to do so. He remains a paradox to himself. What follows is an attempt to resolve the seeming contradiction of his existence. A climb is a response. It is an action in response...

The Trap of “Man-Culture”

There is a great temptation in all of us to reduce all of our lives to a checklist. All I need is to get this or that set of things done, and then my life is complete. I will be a millionaire by the time I am 30. I am going to get married (or not get married) until my late twenties. I will retire by 55.  I know a whole lot of people that live by...
