The Everyday Catholic’s Guide to the Liturgy of the Hours

It’s so easy to think that there’s not time for prayer. There’s so! much! else! to do…whether laundry or bills or writing or a thousand other projects.

A Primer for Philosophy & Education

About seven years ago, my husband took a philosophy course as part of his first year of undergraduate courses. It was great to listen to him talk about it and it got me really interested in the subject in a more scholarly way. Somehow I had avoided an actual philosophy course in my own college [Read More…]

Caravans by James A. Michener

Caravans by James A. Michener My rating: 5 of 5 stars I read one Michener book, The Source, long ago … in fact, long before I became Christian … just as a compelling way to travel through the history and people of a region. I still recall much of it vividly. Michener was brought to [Read More…]

The Quiet Light by Louis De Wohl

The Quiet Light by Louis De Wohl My rating: 5 of 5 stars Having finished G.K. Chesterton’s The Dumb Ox for my book club, I thought it would be good supplementary material to read a more straight forward biography of this saint.

Youcat Youth Prayer Book

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the newly-released Youcat Prayer Book, and I wasn’t even sure how I would review it. Even if *I* love it, is it something I’ll share? Give? Promote? As it turns out, I had nothing to fear. It’s done well and I’m really enjoying the journey I’m taking through [Read More…]

Shakespeare on Love: Seeing the Catholic Presence in Romeo and Juliet

In both cases instead of exegesis and drawing out of the text, we get eisegesis and a reading into the text. interpretations that say more about the commentator than the text. Just like “the [Read More…]
