“Some of you will be become priests”…

Jose_Benlliure_y_Gil_GIJ013

... I can tell my son about the importance of prayer and lead by example all day long but my words and actions will never have the same deeply profound impact as it would coming from his father. The reality is his father was rabidly anti-Catholic and hasn't been around in eight years. It's been a hidden suspicion of mine that he'll view practicing his faith as womanly, since I'm his only example. And I can be a poor one at times. St. Monica I am not.I am always immensely grateful when … [Read more...]

The Africa eBook Project…

In Cameroon, Africa, books are scarce--especially the good ones. Which means few Catholics have access to quality spiritual reading. Fr.

We've learned nothing from countries destroyed by Socialism, … [Read more...]

... I hear this question every now and then. I wonder, but highly doubt it.I'm not a consecrated single person so being single, in my opinion, is not a vocation. I just sort of ended up in this state through various life circumstances but I never actively sought to be single. I think most singles are like me in this aspect. When I think "vocation" I don't think of some transitory or temporary state, which I hope and pray my singleness is.So I ascertain that being an unconsecrated single … [Read more...]
