Poem: "How far above politics You are, O Lord"

Poem: “How far above politics You are, O Lord”

How far above politics You are, O Lord – high above the low-slung mud and lack of love shown for others, including our own country. Let us be a nation who dwells in You. Let Your justice reign! Let Your regard for every person be the law by which we guard ourselves from error. Bind […]

Movie Review: Hacksaw Ridge

Movie Review: Hacksaw Ridge

Mel Gibson has done it again. Hacksaw Ridge is the cinematic event of 2016-2017. Hacksaw Ridge is the true story of Private Desmond Doss, a Seventh-Day Adventist from Virginia who enlists in World War II, but — as a conscientious objector — staunchly refuses to bear arms. Literally. He won’t even touch a gun, let […]

“You Be You”

Nov 4 16 • 3 comments

I sit here listening to one of my favorite reflective CD’s (Carl Herrgesell’s Reflections in the Key of Peace), playing in the background as I attempt to put little letters together and form words on a blank page. We are days away from a national election that has stirred in me an unprecedented level of both […]

Americans Don’t Want to be Taxed to Pay for Abortions

Americans Don’t Want to be Taxed to Pay for Abortions

Perhaps you have heard the saying abortion advocates often like to repeat: ‘if you don’t like abortion, then don’t get one.’ Well, we not only don’t like abortions, we don’t like being forced to pay for them or to do anything else that would facilitate the termination of the life of an unborn child. Yet […]

Facing Death as a Catholic: We Who Remain

Nov 2 16 • 0 comments

One of my favorite scenes in Return of the King is Sam and Frodo sitting together as Mt. Doom erupts around them. When Frodo says, “I am glad you’re with me Samwise Gamgee, here at the end of all things,” my heartstrings are always tugged because Frodo is reaching for the soul friendship. Love ‘till death. Boundless […]

Dancing With God (Remembering Doris) Early one morning in the Holy Land, I gazed heavenward and smiled; An image painted in cloud, Floated in the sky. “I had the best dream,” My companion, shared; “It was so real.” “I was dancing with Jesus.” God delights to confirm the visions, He gives His friends. The heavens […]

Do Catholics Believe in Ghosts?

Do Catholics Believe in Ghosts?

When I was ten years old I had a direct encounter with a ghost. My brother and I were playing in our bedroom, which was in the attic, of our three-story house in New Jersey. There were steep stairs leading up to the bedroom from the third floor walk way. My brother and I were […]

Christians in a Culture of Death

I was diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1984. In the early 1990s a Canadian woman with ALS tried to introduce to Canada a thin edge of a deadly wedge of physician assisted suicide. Sue Rodriguez was an active campaigner from her wheelchair. “Whose body is this anyway?!” she said. I […]

In an opinion piece for the New York Times, Meredith Isaksen wrote about her later-term abortion—the death of her second child—as if it were an act of mercy for her, her family, and the preborn child who died during the abortion. Her sense of her son’s death as an act of compassion toward him and […]

How Faithful Catholics May Use the Law at the End of Life

Oct 25 16 • 0 comments

The last time I checked, the mortality rate in this country was still 100%. To die usually involves unavoidable suffering. I don’t think these things will be changing any time soon. This is not a cause for anxiety or dread. Christ our Savior has made death and suffering into pathways to eternal life. “Precious in […]

Global Abortion Advocates Dispense with Mask of “Post-Abortion” Care

A leading consortium of reproductive health advocates announced its intention to drop “post-abortion care” from its title and to begin campaigning for “comprehensive abortion care” instead. At an event in Washington announcing the shift, one advocate said that sustaining post-abortion care was never the goal.  “Post-abortion care” was meant to be an “entry point.” She […]

At the conclusion of his brilliant essay, The Weight of Glory, C.S. Lewis wrote, “Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself, your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses.” Lewis was right:  The holy Eucharist bears the body of Christ and your neighbor bears the image of God. Your neighbor may not behave in […]

That all children have a mother and a father is a biological fact.  That they have a right to know and be raised by their parents, where possible, is enshrined in the UN’s most widely ratified human rights treaty.  A UN event last week highlighted how those rights are undermined by efforts to redefine the […]

I am not an avid fiction reader. If I’m lucky I make my way through one or two novels a year. More often than not my nose can be found in theological texts, most likely Mariological in nature. My reading of novels might make an increase as I recently discovered the wonders of Audible and […]
