We Seem To Give Them Back To You, O God

From yesterday each one of us has today moved one day closer to death. It’s our common destiny. The Mass of All Souls puts that reality in front of us in a special way even though in every celebrated Mass we always pray for those who have, along with all of the saints, gone ahead […]

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 [...]

Saint Paul Addresses The Synod

My dear Brothers in Christ, It is not unusual for people of a certain epoch to assume that in their time the culture has deteriorated to such a degree and at so swift a pace that it must be unique in history. Many of you look about your diocese and see premarital sex, co-habitation, contraception, […]
