‘We are an Easter people and Alleluia is our song!’

  “We do not pretend that life is all beauty. We are aware of darkness and sin, of poverty and pain. But we know Jesus has conquered sin and passed through His own pain to the glory of the Resurrection. And we live in the light of His Paschal Mystery – the mystery of His […]

What is Christmas and why should you care?

What is the meaning of Christmas and why should you care? The answer might surprise you. John Barnabas asked me that question on his radio program Happiness, Opportunity & Technology or HOT. John’s Phoenix program airs Tuesdays at Noon on KFNN Money Radio 1510 AM & 99.3 FM. Please click here for his Christmas special with […]

Pope Francis: Welcome to the USA on Facebook

I received spectacular photos of welcome signs to Pope Francis in New York City and Philadelphia. So far, the ones in Washington are on a different scale. At first I planned to write a story about these signs, but the layout of many news websites is not optimal to display them. Then, at Sunday evening Mass […]

We are not alone

We who believe in God are not alone. The most compelling speech I heard was by Terrisa Lopez of Secular Pro-Life … “This morning, the pro-life movement is united because it doesn’t matter your religion. … We all feel the same emotion when we watch those videos. Horror. Shock. Anger. And most of all grief for those who have lost their lives.”

The miraculous photo of Father Lange’s house

Father Robert Lange was pastor of my parish. He was a great, gentle, profound and loving priest. I cried when he left our parish and now I cry because he died. LORD God Almighty, please rest your humble servant. The photo of Father comes from The Arlington Catholic Herald Born: June 13, 1944 Died: May […]

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.” (John 20:29) The Gospel of Matthew: Chapter 28 Now after the sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Mag’dalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel […]

‘Today you will be with me in Paradise’

Good Friday To me, the so-called good thief, whose real name is Dismas, represents sincere Christians. If we are honest with ourselves, we will take the LORD’s words to heart and mind. We will be ever mindful of what He says several times in John 14: If we love Him, we will keep His commandments. […]

The Wexford Carol performed by Alison Krauss and Yo-Yo Ma

Here’s the tender and deeply moving 12th century Irish Christmas carol separately sung by Alison Krauss and Libera. “With Mary holy, we should pray, to God with love, this Christmas Day…”

Joy to the world!

Many people become depressed during the holidays. I hope you’re not one of them, but if you are, maybe this will help you or maybe it will help someone you know. LORD knows that in the past I’ve had my own bouts of depression at Christmastime. Years ago, I was invited to hear Randall Wallace […]

Christmas for cat lovers

Obviously, Christmas is the birthday of Jesus Christ Almighty, the Alpha and the Omega, our Creator and Redeemer. Look at the photo of Benny, my beautiful Maine Coon, and celebrate the fact that Christ is also the generous Creator of cats. Except for a baby’s giggle, can you think of a more delightful sound than a […]

IN DULCI JUBILO

Beautiful! IN DULCI JUBILO is one of my favorite Christmas carols. Merry Christmas to you! The original German/Latin song was written by Dominican monk Henry Suso, circa 1320. The English version by Robert Pearsall (1834) follows the original Catholic German “macaronic” style of mixing Latin with the vernacular language. Pearsall was an English composer living […]

‘Messenger of the Truth’ comes to Washington

“Justice and the right to know the truth require us, from the pulpit, to repeatedly demand a limit on the tyranny of censorship.” –Father Jerzy Popieluszko

One of my creeds

This is one of my creeds. It was written by the great Edith Stein, who became Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross. It grieves me that her sister Rosa is forgotten. They were double prizes for the Nazis because they were Jewish converts, and I hope you will read the books Edith wrote before she became […]

‘I am the light of the world’

John 9 was today’s Gospel at the Roman Catholic Masses. Every single time I hear it or read it, I become a weepy mess. I weep because the young man cured of blindness fearlessly proclaims the truth. I weep because he’s humble and the model for critical thinkers. But I also weep because I think […]

New film puts Christ back into Christmas

Today, however, a sweet uplifting movie premiers. “The Christmas Candle” opens November 22 in […]
