The "Nuclear Bomb" Christ Gave Us

Friday February 24, 2023

In warfare, the nuclear bomb is the weapon of desperation. It's the choice when political and military leaders feel they have no choice. In one way, Jesus gave the Christian something similar, minus the destruction, as we see in the…


What the Devil's Voice Sounds Like

Thursday February 23, 2023

In the summer of 2004, my bags were packed, all my affairs were in order and I was shipping off to seminary. Years of prayerful discernment had finally come to an end -- God was calling me to the priesthood. Yet weeks before leaving, a…


Spiritual Battle Begins With Ashes

Wednesday February 22, 2023

Lent has begun! As we enter with Jesus into the desert for the next 40 Days, the false claimants of our hearts will be unmasked. St. John called them the "lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and the pride of life." (Cf. 1 John 2:15-16).

YOU Are the Light of the World!

Saturday February 4, 2023

One of the greatest gifts of being a Christian is that we are no longer beholden by what people think of us. Often times we can place our dignity on silly things -- my job title, how my body looks, how much money I have, etc. Jesus breaks…


Live The Faith Boldly

Fun fact: the first Christian nation on earth is Armenia. In the year 301, King Tiridates III converted, along with the entire nation. Why is always the question. There was no earthly benefit at the time.
