Only the Good Die Young

Posted by:

Billy Joel wrote a very popular song back in the 70s named Only the Good Die Young. It is a very upbeat and catchy song in which he sings about prayers, rosaries, confirmation and Catholic family life.  The only problem with the song is that the author is not very happy about his encounters with one or more catholic families. Apparently the Catholics he met did not do a very good job of spreading the gospel or ministering to ...

Courtship is not the Answer

Posted by:

I absolutely love the courtship approach to dating for my children, but it isn’t enough.  Courtship is the idea that young people should only enter into an exclusive relationship when they are ready to get married.  I have discussed in a previous blog post exactly what Dating with Purpose looks like, so go check it out for more details if you wish. In short, Courtship, or Dating with Purpose, establishes a set of guidelines or best practices that should ...

Wow, that is a long time!

Posted by:

This past New Year’s Eve, my wife and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.  We decided to make it a big deal and so we let our adult children throw us a party to celebrate the joyous event.  They rented a nice hall, brought in our favorite live band, had the event catered, bought a wedding cake, and invited a ton of our family and friends.  It was a very nice evening of fun, fellowship and dancing and a celebration ...

Family Life is Unpredictable

Day 4

Making New Friends

The fifth day of our pilgrimage and the fourth day of the World Meeting of Families has come to a close.  Each day was filled with blessings (for a recap, see the daily articles), all according to God’s providence.  On Friday, the last day of the #WMF2015, we were so tired and the vendor area was closed down by the Secret Service for security reasons, and we barely made it to morning mass and we sat very ...

Day 2

Settling into our Groove

Our second day of the conference and the first full day was a lot of fun.  We found our groove and discovered a part of why we are here.  We decided to keep the kids with us for morning daily mass and drop them off at the Youth Conference afterwards.  We decided to forgo the keynote and instead spend some time walking through the vendor area.  Our kids had a great time at the Youth Congress and ...
