Resurrection Year: Turning Broken Dreams Into New Beginnings

Those who suffer from infertility bear a special sort of cross, and it’s one that breaks my heart. It’s among the pain I wish I could bear for those I love. I don’t wish it on anyone. Our world got so tiny, our vision got so small—confined to the walls of our problems. For us it [Read More…]

Mysterious Albion (Vatican Vampire Hunters)

While I am not enraptured over the current vampire fiction phase I found Mysterious Albion (Vatican Vampire Hunters) by Paul Leone to be a fairly decent read. The author had contacted me regarding reviewing it and I acquiesced only after he assured me the vampires didn’t “sparkle.”  The author mentions a creative debt he owes to [Read More…]

On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century

When I got my hands on a copy of On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the Twenty-First Century, I knew I’d be reading it. I assumed I’d be whipping through it (which, yes, is always my assumption). I was wrong. I actually read it rather slowly, and it was [Read More…]

Francis: Man of Prayer

Like so many others, I’ve been really taken (smitten?) with Pope Francis. Maybe it’s that I’ve become more and more of a Catholic Geek since 2001.
