More Than a Cranky Priest

More Than a Cranky Priest

I grew up in the 70’s in a diocese that had a shaky grasp of the The Faith.  My last childhood memory of the sacrament of Penance, was going to a reconciliation service. There were readings and a homily about forgiveness and then at one point the priest invited us all to meditate on our […]

Something in the Water

When I was an itty bitty baby Baptist, I remember “accepting Christ as my saviour” (the seven-letter spelling of “savior” was VERY important to a fundamental Baptist) when I was seven years old.  The “one and done-ness” of it all didn’t sit well with me and I had severe bouts of doubt in the teachings […]

Day to Day Ways to Love

Jesus names love for God and love for others as the greatest commandments. We love God by obeying His commandments and by accepting His grace. But how do we love others? This can be a huge challenge – especially when faced with people that aren’t all that lovable. Fortunately, the church helps us out. Instead […]

Mind Your Own Business

Nothing will draw you back into a homily like a reprimand. All it took one morning at daily Mass was for my pastor to say, “It’s none of your business,” and any eyes that were fixated on the ground, the stained glass, or the back of someone’s T-shirt shot forward to Father. And I don’t […]

Papal audience

Is the Pope Catholic?

When non-Catholics encounter the claims of the Roman Catholic Church, questions about the papacy are often some of the foremost in their minds. They may think that Catholics are asked to submit to a mere man instead of directly to God, or that the Pope is a sort of theological dictator who can invent doctrines […]

Most Holy Name of Mary

Today is an extremely important day for me. It’s my daughter Rachael’s 10th birthday. Double digits! Remember what a big deal that was when you were a kid? But that’s not the only special occasion I see inscribed on our calendar hanging in the laundry room. It also happens to be the Feast of the […]

Planned Parenthood Exposed – Again!

For years Planned Parenthood (PP) has had a stranglehold on the abortion racket. Anybody who has researched  PP knows about their racist founder Margaret Sanger.  PP’s reign of endless aborted baby blood has been strewn across this country’s legacy. Choice! Choice! People cry! Some may even see the evidence in pictures of aborted babies and […]

Going Through the Motions

I work night shift.  I go to work at 7:00 p.m. and clock out at 7:30 a.m., three nights a week.  Sometimes my shift falls on a Saturday, which means I end up going to Mass after I’ve been up all night.  Often, I will find an early Mass at a parish near where I […]

It’s Only Between Me and God

The biggest lie I ever bought into was that sin was just between me and God. It was so much easier to look at sin as a private affair, something no one had to know about. It wasn’t like I was a murderer or anything. My sins were small, secret affairs. No one had to […]

Got Indulgences? Q & A: Part 1

“As soon as a coin in the coffer rings, a soul from purgatory springs.”   This is the quote which was attributed to the German Dominican friar and preacher, Johann Tetzel (1465–1519).  Tetzel was an “Inquisitor” and later the “Grand Commissioner” for indulgences in Germany.  It was Tetzel’s preaching on indulgences that got Martin Luther […]
