can non-Catholics pray the rosary…

... while the Rosary may be a strictly Catholic devotion that certainly doesn't exclude non-Catholics. In fact, I firmly believe that non-Catholics can benefit from the practice, so much so I recommend the Rosary to anyone regardless of religious affiliation.In 2003 I was first introduced to the Rosary, years before my conversion to Catholicism. Since then I have given away Rosaries to people suffering from insomnia, recovering in the hospital, dying in hospice, or merely struggling with … [Read more...]

I like straight talk…

... hardly anyone employs the use of blunt straight forward talk anymore. Suddenly it has become more acceptable to verbally tip toe, side stepping offense. As a result people are afraid to state their thoughts emphatically with conviction, preferring to hem and haw. Mr. Roach has no such qualms.

St. Francis was not a hippy…

... I don't how this Disney version character assassination happened or when it began to gain popularity, but St. Francis is not a hippy.Blech! Hmm, this scene looks familiar.Look, you don't get stigmata by recycling plastics, refusing to wear leather, and driving a Prius. The simple fact is, St. Francis lived a life of extreme poverty and devout prayer. He walked to Egypt to convert the muslim Sultan, albeit unsuccessfully, but offered himself up as kindling in a trial-by-fire in … [Read more...]
