Redeeming time, plus the difference the Redeemer makes

By | August 24th, 2016|Categories: Uncategorized|

Today on Catholic Answers Live, Father Paul Scalia (the late Justice Antonin's son) will join me to talk about redeeming the time.

Welcome to the new orthodoxy

By | March 29th, 2016|Categories: Culture|

The world and its worldly way of interpreting reality is getting stranger by the hour. Consider. Jeremy Irons is acknowledged by most movie and theatre lovers to be one of the greatest living actors.  He endorsed Green Party candidate Caroline Lucas in 2015; his best man was the Openly Gay [tm] Christopher Biggins; and his big break [...]
