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 […]

Pat Buchanan: Is the sun peeking through the war clouds?

Published: September 19, 2013 Prussian Chancellor Otto von Bismarck is sometimes credited with the proverb, “God has a special providence for fools, drunks and the United States of America.” Observing the unfolding of the Syrian crisis, the Iron Chancellor was an insightful man.

‘Hating Breitbart’ and loving justice

Published over the weekend @ RenewAmerica.com… “The left pits people against one another: divide and conquer. I don’t want to live in that world – I’m sick of living in that world.

Michael Schiavo’s web of deceit

March 31 marked the eighth anniversary of Terri Schindler Schiavo’s horrifying execution. The most chilling detail of this case is Dr. Cranford’s boasting about how he got Terri killed via propaganda and my article was originally published December 20, 2005. Please see Bobby Schindler’s memorial column @ WND and visit the Terri Schiavo Life & […]

The live Host

Many of my friends (and I) are distressed because Vice President Joe Biden took Holy Communion at Cardinal Dolan’s Palm Sunday Mass. Prior to Election Day 2012, I wrote about the gravity of this sacrilege over @ WND. Now that it’s Holy Week, please consider scientific proof that someone is alive in the Holy Eucharist. […]

Mixed emotions on the movie ‘Les Misérables’

Thanks to a friend and diehard “Les Miserables” fan, I saw the movie musical but have mixed emotions about it. Hugh Jackman is a fine Jean Valjean, but the Victor Hugo story is highly misleading on the French Revolutionaries; the musical by Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg, with lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer, is mostly mediocre; […]

Wow – I’m in a saint’s book!
