Review: Persuasive Pro-Life

I have been very impressed with the work of Trent Horn of Catholic Answers. I always enjoy when he is answering calls on Catholic answers and his last book Answering Atheism: How to Make the Case for God with Logic and Charity was excellent. So when I had heard he was writing a new book [...]

Lost in Translation

Maureen aka suburbanbanshee posts Worst Vatican Translation Yet at # Over the Rhine and Into the Tiber On October 27th, Pope Francis addressed the Pontifical Academy of Sciences and talked about evolution as one of God’s probable methods of Creation. News reports in English had the Pope saying, “God is not a divine being.” What the Pope [...]

Review: The Hobbit Party

When it comes to books regarding J.R.R. Tolkien and his books it has become much like scripture interpretation. Which means in this case is that you learn much more about the philosophy of the author and very little about Tolkien’s works. Famously his books have been taken up by socialists who rather crazily assumed he [...]

An Introduction to Markdown

If you blog, write notes, write articles or books, or any form of writing with formatted text you might want to consider using Markdown. John Gruber who created Markdown a decade ago describes it this way: Markdown is a plain text formatting syntax that allows you to write in an text editor and then have [...]

Marvin: An App Review

I love to read and mostly I have transitioned over almost totally to ebooks. That transition started four years ago with the introduction of the original iPad in April of 2010. At the start the apps for reading ebooks was rather limited with only basic features. The original version of iBooks was pretty good and [...]

The Synod is over for now

Well now that the synod is over until they meet again next year it is time for a little wrap up. Thankfully Tom McDonald saved me from writing an inferior post so I will just point to The “Thank You God the Synod Is Over” Post. I totally agree with his synopsis concerning the synod [...]

The Weekly Francis – Volume 77 – 20 October 2014

This version of The Weekly Francis covers material released in the last week from 2 – 19 October 2014. The Weekly Francis is a compilation of the Holy Father’s writings, speeches, etc which I also post at Jimmy Akin’s The Weekly Francis. Jimmy Akin came up with this idea when he started “The Weekly Benedict” and [...]

Write in Blessed Mother Teresa for this election

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The leader of Rhode Island’s Catholics suggests voters could write in Mother Teresa or sit out the Nov. 4 election because of a field of candidates he says isn’t “terribly promising” on the abortion issue. Bishop Thomas Tobin says in The Rhode Island Catholic diocesan newspaper that writing in Mother Teresa in [...]

Relatio post disceptationem

Today the Synod released Relatio post disceptationem which as Jimmy Akin describes (i.e., a report after discussion), which summarized the discussions held in the first week of the synod. As with most things regarding the Synod or the Church in general there are narrative reactions with people always looking for major changes in the Church [...]

Catholic Rapture

While the modern idea of the rapture as popularized in the 1830s by John Darby is a modern invention believed by some Protestants, there seems to be even a more modern version of the rapture regarding Catholics. Now this is all guess-work and not yet proven. Purely speculation, although it seems to fit some of [...]
