Real Catholic Men Can Play Games

The 40 Year Old Virgin

A couple weeks back I read something by a priest arguing that Real Catholic Men should not play videogames. The article was pointless and ill-informed, and proved mostly that the author had not one single solitary clue about his subject matter and only the vaguest notion about “videogames” and the people who play them. We were treated [Read More...]

Should Parents Turn Gay Kids “Over to Satan”?

mac

Since this post wound up being too long, I’ll get to the short answer to the titular question and say, “No.” And let me just add “duh.” But noted anti-Catholic John MacArthur has a different perspective . He was asked a question about how a parent should respond to a child who is gay, and [Read More...]

Look What I Got in The Mail!

  It’s beautiful and big and mine mine mine! This is me: It leads with the complete text of his central work on the topic, Spirit of the Liturgy, and then collects all his papers and homilies on the liturgy in several sections: Typos–Mysterium–Sacramentum, Celebration of the Eucharist, Theology of Church Music, and Further Perspectives.

Watch Some C.S. Lewis Doodles

  C.S. Lewis Doodle is almost completely self-explanatory: it’s a guy illustrating excerpts from the works of C.S. Lewis with doodles, and it’s pretty neat. The art is credited to Playmobible.com and the reading is by Ralph Cosham, who some might recognize from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. [Read more...]

7 Book Takes

7_quick_takes_sm1

I’ve never done one of Jen Fulwiler’s 7 Quick Takes before, but I see that Leah Libresco has turned Darwin Catholic’s Immediate Book Meme (and BTW, Darwins, your pizza recipe CHANGED OUR ENTIRE LIVES!) into a quick take thingie, and I know an idea worth stealing when I read one, so… — 1 —  What [Read More...]

Light & Bread in the Gospel of John

This essay originally was published in an online journal, now defunct. I’m publishing it here in case it’s of interest. The full title is Light and Bread: A Sapiential Reading of Two “I Am” Statements in the Gospel of John. All the footnotes got stripped when I plopped the text into WordPress, but if you’re curious [Read More...]

Leo XIII on the Role of “Amateurs” in Defending the Faith

Every now and then I come across a complaint, like this one urging the Register to fire Mark Shea, about lay Catholics who speak and write about the faith. The idea that this role should be left to the “professionals” is rooted in either clericalism or elitism. It has no roots whatsoever in the life [Read More...]

iPieta [App o the Mornin']

iPieta (iOS/Android: $3) is  huge app, both in scope and size. At 181 MB, it demands a hefty chunk of real-estate. (By comparison, Cut the Rope only takes up 22 MB.) But it earns its space by placing a staggering library of documents and prayers at your fingertips. The documents are divided into four sections: Bible, [Read More...]
