Easter: Tomb as Womb

By | April 25th, 2017|Categories: Spirituality|

BY PCM | ORIGINAL SOURCE: National Catholic Register The Resurrection is not a metaphor for the need to “rise above” life's difficulties or a well-meaning myth about fulfillment. Rather, Christ's resurrected body is a solid thing. As mysteries of the Faith go, even apart from the Easter Bunnification of Easter, the Resurrection is one of the hardest [...]

Transformed By Beauty ebook

By | April 25th, 2017|Categories: Culture, Spirituality|

The good people at Covenant Eyes have produced a thought-proving four-part ebook titled Transformed By Beauty, which points toward the antidote for compulsive (or causal) porn use. Edited by Sam Guzman and Amanda Zurface and strung across four interviews, I guarantee you haven't come across a treatment like this.  We dive deep with (in order) Father Thomas [...]

Four Takeways from the Holy Land

By | April 25th, 2017|Categories: Spirituality|

I just got back from a 12-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land with 30 on-fire Christians including our spiritual director Monsignor Charles Pope of Washington DC. And what a trip it was. Bathed in the clement Israeli sun, we saw Magdala, Capernaum, Caesarea Maritima, Cana, Nazareth, Bethany, Calvary, Qumran, Jericho, Bethlehem – stunning and quite impossible [...]

I landed at Franciscan University of Steubenville, in the fall of 1994 as, in the University nomenclature, a "grad non-trad" [...]

  For those who care deeply about celebrities, no matter how "has been," the bloom was taken off Christmas this year with the one-two loss of singer George Michael on Christmas Day and actress Carrie Fisher just hours ago as I write this.

Movies for a Christmas Eve

By | December 24th, 2016|Categories: Movies|

You have no doubt seen the greatest film ever made, It's a Wonderful Life, starring James Stewart and Donna Reed and directed by Frank Capra. Stripped down to its essentials, it's a story about the intercessory prayers of a woman named Mary... Imagine my astonishment when I got an email from a daughter (I'll preserve her [...]

Porn free!

By | April 19th, 2016|Categories: Culture, Spirituality|

A lot of effort is expended by Christians talking about the problem of pornography (we hear of the scourge of porn, the  and damages of porn ) and so little effort on what to do about it, at least on a personal level.       Last week on  Catholic Answers Live, I interviewed a young man [...]
