The Answer: Hi Danne, Part of the reason this question is tough is that there are a few kinds of marriage mentioned in scripture (at least 3 or 4), though there is really only 2. The for kinds are: 1) Natural Marriage – From the beginning, one man and one woman, each possessing half of […]

Restoring Love: One Man’s Antidote to Pornography

I’ve been cautiously encouraged by some recent posts on GirlsAskGuys (I’ve mentioned them before).  In the last few weeks, I’ve seen an upsurge in posts about pornography.  Two were from male users asking how to stop.  One even identified himself as an atheist. It’s not enough to simply point out the harm that porn can […]

A Confession Reflection for the Season that is Lenten

I spoke in my previous entry about Pope Francis’ enthusiasm for the Sacrament of Confession.  According to Catholic Radio, he decided to pursue his vocation to the priesthood while attending Confession. The majority of Catholics rarely, if ever attend Confession, a sacrament about which I am very passionate.  In a shared objection with non-Catholics, many disagree […]

Pope Francis: Year in Review

In a time when the Catholic Church is under seemingly constant attack from a secular world that denounces her as irrelevant and out of touch and that also seems to suffer from internal disconnect, I can think of few people more vital today than Pope Francis. Where credit is due We needed Popes John Paul […]

Shrovetide and The International Pancake Day Race!

The day before Ash Wednesday has many different names and traditions, to include Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras.  However, there is one fairly recent pre-Ash Wednesday tradition that actually takes place right here in Kansas.  It began in England with the observation of Shrove Tuesday.  This tradition is what we know today as the International Pancake […]

Pope Francis, President Obama, and Social Justice

With all the talk during the Conclave about a pope from the United States, I’m sure President Obama breathed a sigh of relief when that did not happen, especially since Timothy Cardinal Dolan had given him more than a few headaches about his unconstitutional (and unjust) contraceptive coverage mandate.  I imagine he was also excited […]

“My Porn Addiction”

From the folks over at LifeSiteNews: November 26, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – It was in the mid 90s that we began to hear a whole lot about this new thing called “the Internet,” which could answer all of mankind’s deepest questions. At around the same time I hit puberty and began to spend my time moping […]

Evolution As It Relates To Human Sexuality

One common objection to religious belief is that science can explain everything.  Perhaps the most intense discourse today is between evolution and creation.  Many militant atheists assume that we do not accept the facts of history and science, but this is false.  The Church simply states that everything did not happen by accident; we are made in […]

Q: Does God Want Only A Contrite Heart?

A reader asks: I . . . came across the daily readings. They seem to contradict themselves. . . . Hosea 6:1-6: The last couple versus are, “what am I to do with you, Ephraim? What am I to do with you, Judah? For your love is like morning mist, like the dew the quickly […]
