What is the Goal of Dating?

Most of us have grown up with dating being a part of our lives or a part of the lives of people we know and love.  When we think of dating many may consider it to be an integral part of finding a spouse and for the most part that is what it used to be and perhaps our society has lost sight of that end goal in the past 20 years.  Today it seems ...

After Action Report: Prom

Posted by:

Two weeks after my daughter attended the High School Prom, we wrote up our collective thoughts on her attendance.  We wanted to take some time to sort through our emotions, analyze the decision and then write the comments down (and still be a good husband and Father to our nine children).

Pope Francis recently said that “Children’s tears are the best sermon” and he encouraged parents to bring their children to mass even though they may cause a disruption from time to time.  I agree with the Pope completely, too often parents stop bringing their children or stop coming to Church all together due to ugly comments or dirty looks by fellow parishioners.  While I do think that it is ok for children to have an occasional outburst during ...
