A Reader Writes…

I am currently ill, and am happy to say a certain Paul Fahey has taken up the task of actually writing something. It is reasoned, wonderful and far more structured than anything I've managed to put down. Enjoy the second guest post BadCatholic has seen, and remember I'm always willing to put up anything reader's write, unless they are advocating liturgical dancing.Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of i … [Read more...]

Part of what's great about being Catholic is that it makes things deeper. For instance, I was giving blood at my high-school the other day, and, happily watching it drip from my veins into a bag, I remembered that I had gone to mass that morning. Then that blew my mind, because I drank the blood of God at mass, which was assumedly running through the same veins that now had needles sticking out of them, giving blood. The sacrifice he made for me was, in a very real way, giving me the grace and … [Read more...]

If This Is How We Lose….

Do Something Crazy

Wear a hairshirt. Get a backpack full of rocks and run to your church. Organize a Eucharistic procession through the streets of your town. Build a massive bonfire in honor of an obscure saint you found on the Internet in your backyard. Because I don't know if you've noticed, but this world has gotten boring, and could use some Catholics violently expressing their faith.For example, check out this story that I posted on facebook awhile back. What coolness. That judge was on to something. We … [Read more...]

Pro Freaking Life

"When the revolution happens you won't read about it in the newspapers." It is a sad state of affairs, when battles fierce and important are politicized into meaningless drivel. The best way to ruin a good fight is to let the media lock it into a stalemate, and to publicize the whole situation as a social phenomena - an example of differing views. From the level of discussion the media grants the abortion debate, you'd think we were arguing over a tax break. The revolution is … [Read more...]

Nothing Worth Sharing More…

I'm not usually big on sharing spiritual experiences, but I figure I should follow my own advice as explained in the Joyful Mysteries post, and let you guys know about something beautiful.I was on a retreat last weekend, and it was fantastic. My friends and I were leaders, goodness knows why, instructed to bring kids closer to God. Part of the retreat was handing out spiritually affirming letters written by our parents, friends and leaders. Basically, it was a time to recognize the … [Read more...]
