The Trauma of Sin

Posted by:

We recently moved to a new city and found an awesome Catholic community that we didn’t think possible (We moved here for a secular job). The Pastoral staff and fellow parishioners are incredible and even in the midst of the COVID pandemic restrictions we were able to meet some great people and get involved in activities with other Catholics. One of those activities for me was to work with another man to organize a Lenten based men’s fraternity in January ...

What is Love?

This is a question that has been asked throughout all of history.  Many poets, songwriters and philosophers have sought to provide an answer to people of every age and yet people continue to ask and to seek a love that will fulfill the deepest desires and longings of their hearts. For we were made to love and to be loved, and our hearts are restless until we find it.  God is love and thus we should look to ...

The Family at the Foot of the Cross

Posted by:

Lent has just begun, a season of reflecting upon the suffering and death of the Lord and go with him to the foot of the cross.  Many of the faithful offer up a token sacrifice for 40 days to better learn how to love.  These sacrifices have meaning, these little daily sufferings in a small way, prepare our mind and bodies for any real sufferings that will inevitably come our way.  For most adults, suffering is nothing new, anyone who has lived past ...

Let’s Bring Back Family Game Night

Posted by:

While my family was living in Galveston, TX last year, we discovered a pretty nice little cafe named “Board Game Island“.  The food was pretty good, but that isn’t why our kids loved the place.  They served alcohol and coffee, but that isn’t why we liked it.  We loved this place because it provided an opportunity for our family to spend time together playing games.  We could have eaten at restaurants serving great seafood, places with better views ...

Bearing and Sharing the Burden

Personal and family trials are difficult and are very hard to deal ...

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 ...
