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.

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 […]

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.

The End Game of Gender-less Marriage

True story: Last month, there was a writers panel in Sydney, that addressed the topic of marriage.  Titled tongue-in-cheek as “Why get married when you can be happy,” some of the participants tipped their cards rather tellingly on what the marriage re-definition issue is really about.

Old Testament Proscriptions, The Levitical Law, and the New Covenant

I was reading a piece over at the Friendly Atheist, written by the daughter of prominent Christian evangelist Matt Slick, founder of CARM.org, a christian (but not Catholic, and at times Anti-Catholic apologetic website – I could write a whole web-site dedicated to refuting that stuff, but others already have.).
