Amen….

This Is My Body, which will be given for you

Conception in the Fallopian Tube Virtually all conceptions of human beings occur within the fallopian tubes of a female. The sperm pierces the single-cell egg only recently released from the ovum. The moment a sperm breaks into the egg, there is no longer the sperm and the egg, but rather a single-cell person, or rather a person in the embryonic stage known as a zygote. This is the moment; rather, this is the instant that there is a new person…

How do you know you end the pain?

An Expansion of the Death Culture During these past two weeks, the Massachusetts Legislature held two separate Committee Hearings, each for a different proposed law encouraging and state-sanctioning the killing of human persons. The first bill, the Roe Act, is to expand access to and permissible circumstances for abortion, including death beyond birth. The second bill is to open our society to the permitting and normalizing of suicide through prescriptive poison. Each bill is more than disturbing. Abortion Expansion The…

The Crucifix Speaks Presence

The Crucifix Speaks Presence

Suggested Practice: Provide a crucifix in each bedroom of your home, and anywhere you may have children sit out their disciplinary timeouts. A statue or image of the Blessed Virgin Mary is also a near equally good idea to include with each Crucifix. Images of Saints and other spiritual subjects are good to include in the children’s bedroom. Depending on the age and knowledge base of your child, explain as needed that Jesus always suffers greater than we. Mary, our…

Its A More Intentional Culture War

Its A More Intentional Culture War

Intro Among the most insightful books of the current American culture is Aldous Huxley’s, Brave New World along with its companion book, Brave New World Revisited, the latter books errors on overpopulation notwithstanding.

To Know Your Parish Church

To Know Your Parish Church

Suggested Practice Consider remaining in your church for five or ten minutes after Mass one Sunday a month to walk about explaining one piece of art in the church with a short, quiet stay before the Eucharist in the Tabernacle.

A Temple Not Built By Human Hands

A Temple Not Built By Human Hands

Intro Nearly $1 billion was pledged to repair damages the Notre Dame Cathedral sustained from its April fire.  Rich, French individuals pledged the bulk of the money.  By a quirk in French law, the Cathedral, identified as owned by the Catholic Church, is in law owned by the government of France.  It was also pointed out that French tax law provided substantial tax breaks to those who pledged large sums of money toward the cathedral’s rebuilding.  These factors prompted some…

Blessing Your Child Often is Simple and Essential

The Challenge In such a secularized culture, it is not unusual for a parent to wonder how to ensure there is enough spiritual formation for their children.  A parent has the responsibility of being the primary educator and formator of their children, but where do you go for your formation as a Catholic parent?  What practices should you integrate into your family life that are not a pretentious and superficial ritual that is more intrusive than nurturing the faith life…
