Your Next Indispensable Book for the Culture Wars

By |2019-10-03T00:11:47+00:00October 3rd, 2019|Culture|

Imagine Cicero in his study writing out his fiercely-reasoned jeremiads against a decaying Republic, which was rapidly abandoning the ancient virtues that built Roman civilization. His was a heroic attempt to stop his nation’s slide into tyranny and to bring renewal to his culture. As an enlightened pagan writing before the coming of Christ, he [...]

Drag Queen Masculinity

By |2019-08-04T10:38:21+00:00August 4th, 2019|Culture|

We live in the age of attacks on the very concept of masculinity. I do not wish to overstate the case by inferring that all effeminate male fashions and trends – such as man buns, skinny mom jeans, makeup for men, etc. – represent the death of masculinity. I do not think fashion has that [...]

Tim Tebow’s baseball career may have hit a wall this year due to suffering a broken bone in his hand, but he is still one of the most intriguing public figures in modern American life.   He is not giving up, though.  He never gives up on what is most important to him. Tebow has endured [...]

Undoing the Knot of Clerical Scandals

By |2019-07-01T01:54:44+00:00July 1st, 2019|Church, Our Lady|

The Catholic priesthood is undoubtedly experiencing a profound crisis at this moment. The vast majority of good priests are tainted by the scandals, but Our Lady, Mother of Priests, does not give up hope for them, even though the world and some Catholics do. She can free the clergy of the weight of scandal and [...]

Ascension Thursday begins what we may call the Church’s first novena. It is the nine-day period between Ascension Thursday and Pentecost Sunday in which the disciples were locked in the Upper Room, united in prayer with Our Lady, and obedient to the Lord’s wishes: “to wait for ‘the promise of the Father’” (Acts 1:4).

By now, only a comatose person is unaware of the cultural and political divisions in our country.    But just how did American society devolve into factions of people who hate each other?

Clerical Contraception – the Other Priestly Scandal

By |2019-03-07T12:53:05+00:00March 7th, 2019|Christ, Church|

Among the many hard teachings of Christ that is deeply “offensive” to the dominant secular culture today is the Church’s age-old prohibition of the use of all forms of artificial contraception, which is a clearly-defined doctrine of the Church. How many people have left the Church or formally rejected the Church’s teaching on artificial contraception [...]

Unraveling Our Personal History

By |2019-03-06T13:01:08+00:00March 6th, 2019|Motivation, Our Lady|

While the Blessed Virgin Mary has a very visible role to play in the season of Advent, she is less prominent in Lent.
