Are Your Children Open to the Miraculous or do You Unwittingly Stifle Their Faith?   Our Lady of Fatima (Week 2 of 8) What interested Jacinta most was the story of the Passion of Christ, which Lucia, with the native talent that shows sporadically in her four memoirs, must have made graphic enough. Jesus praying alone in the Garden while His friends slept and His enemies plotted; Jesus being scourged while His Mother looked... Read More

How to Confront “The New Morality” with Truth and Beauty Seeds of the Word (Week 11 of 11) How well do Christians know the theories of their intellectual enemies?

Do Americans believe that Christianity is as Violent as Islam? Seeds of the Word (Week 8 of 11) Take out of consideration the Creator, who made every person in love and destined each for eternal life, and properly inalienable rights promptly disappear.  And individuals become, in very short order, the objects of political manipulation and domination. To see the truth of this, all we have to do is look at the totalitarianisms... Read More

The Light of Faith – How I was Converted by Two College Classmates I Never Knew   Seeds of the Word (Week 7 of 11) In “New” atheist and secularist circles today, faith is regularly ridiculed. It is presented as a pre-scientific mumbo jumbo, Bronze Age credulity, the surrender of the intellect, unwarranted submission to authority, etc. Time and time again, the late Christopher Hitchens, echoing Immanuel Kant, called... Read More

Original Sin, Confederate Flags, and the Politics of Social Reform Seeds of the Word (Week 5 of 11) The source of the greatest suffering throughout human history is the attempt to deal with original sin on our own, through our political, economic, military, or cultural efforts. When we try to eliminate conflict and sin through social reform, we inevitably make matters worse. As Pascal said long ago, “He who would turn himself... Read More

What Do Your Want with all Your Heart? Seeds of the Word (Week 3 of 11) In the Gospel of John, Jesus turns on two young men who are following him and asks, “What do you want?” It’s an indispensably important question. Many people go through life not really knowing what they most fundamentally want, and accordingly, they drift. The correct answer to Jesus’ question is “eternal life” or “friendship with God” or... Read More
