The Joy of Vocation: A Look at the Grown-up Version of Fun

The Joy of Vocation: A Look at the Grown-up Version of Fun

Dec 8 16 • 0 comments

Shortly after I got married, a good priest gave me some sage advice: look at all your daily frustrations as a source of holiness. Later that day, my husband did something that irritated me, so I said to him through clenched teeth: “You are making me so holy right now.” Of course, this made us […]

What is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception?

What is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception?

“I am the Immaculate Conception.” These are the words our Blessed Mother spoke to young Bernadette Soubirous when she appeared at Lourdes in 1858. On December 8th, we celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, yet it often seems to leave many people confused. What exactly are we celebrating on this holy day? Contrary to […]

With all the fluff and noise about the elections, two reports came to my attention recently that may have missed your roving review of the news. We have learned that in the Netherlands the government will kill you at your request, even if what you’re suffering from is alcoholism or depression. One report reveals that […]

Abortion Advocates Seek to Sway Trump to Keep Foreign Abortion Funds

Abortion Advocates Seek to Sway Trump to Keep Foreign Abortion Funds

The biggest names in international abortion advocacy are looking for ways to convince the incoming Trump administration not cut their funding by reinstating the 1984 Mexico City Policy. The policy requires that grantees of US foreign aid for family planning do not perform or actively promote abortions. It was rescinded under Democratic administrations and reinstated […]

Forgotten Children: Singles in the Church

Forgotten Children: Singles in the Church

Dec 5 16 • 4 comments

A question that occasionally comes up when the topic of single Catholics is raised has to do with priorities. Some would say that the Church is too busy addressing the many moral evils in today’s society to be concerned with single people. This line of thinking, however, prevents the Church from seizing a great opportunity. Assisting […]

Unborn Sanctuary Cities and Prenatal Immigrants

Dec 2 16 • 0 comments

There is much debate since the presidential election about the status of sanctuary cities across our country. “Sanctuary city” is a name given to a city in the United States that follows certain procedures that shelter illegal immigrants. A sanctuary can be defined as “a place of refuge and protection,” and sanctuary cities claim to […]

Movie Review Don't Breathe

Movie Review Don’t Breathe

DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER! GIVES TOO MUCH AWAY! Don’t Breathe is a much ballyhooed suspense-thriller from 38-year-old Uruguayan horror-meister, Fede Alvarez, that I was very eager to see. I don’t do straight-up horror/slasher films, but I could tell that Don’t Breathe had more of the air of a thriller, and I wasn’t wrong. It’s […]

General Assembly Rejects Controversial Sex Ed Programming, Launches Anti-Bullying Campaign

General Assembly Rejects Controversial Sex Ed Programming, Launches Anti-Bullying Campaign

A three-year campaign to have the General Assembly endorse “comprehensive sexuality education” programming fizzled out during negotiations this year. Sponsors of the annual General Assembly resolution on the “Rights of the Child” did not include “comprehensive sexuality education” in the draft resolution that is being considered for adoption, resulting in a kind of ceasefire on […]

Poem: "La Misericordia Bulla"

Poem: “La Misericordia Bulla”

La Misericordia Bulla Mercy for you, mercy from me. Hosanna, mercy! Hosanna, me ! Dogma says “don’t”, doctrine says “whoa”! Tradition says “halt”. Serviam? I say Noa. Sin can be virtue, but virtue be sin. But mercy is mercy, Voila! Sin again. Obstinate, harsh, hateful justice is wrong. Mercy the prize, dance to my song. […]

“Do old men have dreams?” asked Jeanette as she watched her 88 year old father through the window of the cottage they rented for a week in the Rocky Mountains. Bill Richards was standing alone on the deck looking across a pristine aqua-marine lake after a rainstorm. It was dusk and a beautiful rainbow arched […]

Giving Gifts to God Babe of Bethlehem, Your Star still lights the way. You are the loveliest flower, Your Father’s good creation, A wondrous bouquet.

Taking Our Thanksgiving Further

Taking Our Thanksgiving Further

Nov 24 16 • 0 comments

I found myself traveling with nothing to read, so I wandered over to the airport kiosk to find something to occupy me for a few hours. Having a small mountain of unread books at home, I couldn’t justify another, so it had to be a magazine, and who can resist National Geographic? The cover was […]

I was talking to my Dad one Sunday evening while I stood in the backyard flipping burgers on the grill. “How was your weekend?” Dad asked. “Fine,” I said.  “We didn’t do much; the lake yesterday in the morning then cooked out some steaks in the evening.  Today it was church in the morning, then […]

Poem: “On the Disastrous Spread of Aestheticism in all Classes”

Nov 22 16 • 0 comments

On the Disastrous Spread of Aestheticism in all Classes Impetuously I sprang from bed, Long before lunch was up, That I might drain the dizzy dew From the day’s first golden cup. In swift devouring ecstasy Each toil in turn was done; I had done lying on the lawn Three minutes after one. For me, […]

Trump’s School Choice Plan Could Impact Catholic Schools

Trump’s School Choice Plan Could Impact Catholic Schools

Nov 21 16 • 5 comments

It’s no secret that Catholic schools have seen a continual decline in enrollment since the 1960s, and the threats to Catholic education perpetuated by the Obama administration certainly haven’t helped schools thrive. Trying to stave the flow of student attrition, Catholic schools are implementing new business and financing models, collapsing and consolidating school systems, and […]

The world’s most powerful family planning groups announced a “contraceptive crisis,” calling for more funding and “sounding the alarm over the unmet contraceptive needs of hundreds of millions of people.” A look at their latest report, however, shows the opposite: a glut of contraception in a world where unsatisfied demand has sharply fallen.

By Maria Lozano NEW YORK—According to a leading Iraqi prelate, the country’s displaced Christians currently stranded in Kurdistan are unlikely to be able to return to their homes on the Nineveh Plane until Mosul is liberated and the region is completely pacified.
