What Does It Mean to Impose One’s Beliefs On Another?

OK. I realize that I am coing to the Hobby Lobby discussion a little late. Still, I wanted to weigh in and finally found the time. Those that side with Hobby Lobby, and yes I am one of them, say that the Supreme Court’s decision was correct because the government …

Anointing of the Sick

Great article at the Homiletic and Pastoral Review website about it. This is about the over use and abuse of the sacrament, but it also explains perfectly why Deacons ought not to be able to do this sacrament as I have heard many suggest, both in class and on teh …

Less Than 100 Days

That’s how much time until my Diaconal ordination into the Permanent Diaconate. Seems like just last year that my class got together for the first time. I still can’t believe they let me in, much less let me get this far! In these last four years, I have gained new …

Logos Bible Software

Many of you have probably already heard of Logos and what a wonderful tool it is for study, research and learning. They have a couple of  awesome Catholic packages that are truly the best I have seen in Biblical studies. Yeah it’s a little pricey for casual studies, but they …

Enjoying My New Toy

OK. I indulged somewhat, but I am really enjoying the Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 that I picked up through AT&T with the data plan. It has the benefits of being about as portable as an iPad or other tablet, but with a full blown version of Windows 7, a really …
