Why Hating Others Is Really Only Poisoning Your Own Soul

“I hate…” has become perhaps one of the most common utterances used by men and women in today’s society.  It has become especially en vogue, recently, to apply these sentiments toward people who do not share our belief systems (political, social, religious, etc.). This is a great failing on our part as a society,  that we have allowed ...

How Family Life Conquers Chaos and Death

The other day I was stuck in traffic on the highway and I happened to look down at the grass growing in the median between the two sides of the highway. The beauty of the living grass softly swaying in the wind brushed a chord in my soul. This was not any special grass, it wasn’t even particularly aesthetically pleasing, it was just there, and al...

Suffering From and Thinking About Suicide

My father was the best man I ever knew. As a man, he was everything I ever wanted to be.  He was an outdoorsman par excellence, he loved his wife (my mother), and he always made me feel loved and spoke to me as one person to another, imparting his wisdom with kind firmness. Dad was also a very troubled man and struggled with depression for year...

“Striking the Balance” Between Truth and Love

People say you should never talk about religion in the workplace.  I failed on this front last week, but I’m glad I did.  The conversation between me, a coworker and my boss—though uncomfortable at times—was fruitful.  It’s difficult to admit, but the temptation for me in such conversations is to either recoil in fear, to act from a post...

Against Lukewarmness: Fighting the Temptation of the Familiar

Lukewarmness is an inescapable temptation of the Christian faithful, and every person in every vocation at every stage of life must deal with it at one time or another. It can come as a consequence of making God a central part of our daily lives, a consequence of making God and the mysteries of the Christian faith common, so to speak. It seems quit...

Counter the Technological Encroachment into Education with the Bosco Method

In my last article, “Relativism and Devices Are Dulling Your Kids’ Minds,” I addressed the issue that technology brings to the imagination of the young mind. The desire to know and seek truth is hindered by mobile devices that effortlessly provide children with the answers that instead should be answered by their parents and teachers. I am no...

The Talk: Make It an Ongoing Conversation

As rules of some kind, the following things stand out in my memory from my youth: I was never to ride on a motorcycle. If I ever ended up in handcuffs, I’d be spending at least one night in a cell before help arrived. Sex outside of marriage is wrong. I never thought of those “rules” as linked in any way, but they were obviously...

A Lesson for Fathers from My Son with Down Syndrome

I can’t say that I am envious of my two-and-a-half year old son, but I desire to have the faith and love that he exudes each day. Fulton is blessed with Down syndrome, which I’ve come to realize means that he’s got an extra chromosome crammed with genuine love and a basic wisdom about life that most of us either lose or have difficulty attain...

Three Secular Maxims for the “New Evangelization” Evangelist

It’s odd to me that the term “New Evangelization” has yet to catch real fire in the Catholic Church.  What I mean is that it has yet to become a common enough term that the vast majority of Catholics not only recognize it but that they also know what it means. In a nutshell, it carries forth the evangelical mission of the Second Vatican C...

Defending Humanae Vitae: A Bishop Stands Up for the Truth

When facing the difficulties of secular culture, we have two major options: to accommodate the culture or to hold fast to the truth. I think we now have enough evidence to certify that the first option leads to death. Literally, Christian churches are dying out because they have lost their faith and their commitment to the truth. When we as ind...
