Awaiting an Apology from POTUS = Crickets Chirping, and Other HHS Mandate Tidbits

Though I’m on leave, I sheepishly came back aboard the good ship YIMCatholic again to do some light housekeeping. And I was also looking for the keys to my Mustang. I found them hanging on the hook in my stateroom. Go figure.

So since I’m here for a few minutes, I figure I’d pop off a tiny post on stuff I’ve seen on the HHS Mandate in between my break of deep reading and Lenten reflections. The first item to share is this great cartoon that I saw this morning. Bill Maher, and many others, don’t see the truth is this, [Read more...]

Ash Wednesday and Lent, in Two Minutes…

I had to come back aboard real quick to trash some spam comments. Since I’m here, I’m gonna share this awesome example of using new media in the New Evangelization. Busted Halo’s awesome video on Ash Wednesday and Lent. [Read more...]

This is your Captain speaking. I have to inform you that the cruise we’ve been on since October has come to a close. All ammunition, food and water was expended, and we made it back to port just in time for a wee bout of shore leave. [Read more...]

Because of the Lie of Overpopulation

Looking at the map above, I recall the whole Blue State/Red State trope here in the U.S., but with a twist: if you live in a Blue State in the map above, you are facing extinction. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

I almost titled this post, “The Myth of Overpopulation,” but I didn’t because I think the word myth would have been used improperly if I did. Checking the Merriam-Webster dictionary, I find the following definitions for the word, [Read more...]

Why We Should Follow Our Bishops Now And Lead Them Too

But we also have to lead them by example. Sheep leading the shepherds? Bear with me a minute.

The other day, I wrote a post on why we should fight the HHS Mandate. Today, I return to that theme, and expand upon it while clearly sharing the not so earth shattering information that many Catholics in the pews do not care one iota for what the Bishops say about contraception, much less the HHS Mandate.

Why We Must Fight For Our Right of Religious Freedom UPDATED

Should Catholics fight the HHS Mandate, and the other moves by the Administration that seek to remove Catholics from the public square? Absolutely. Should we do so only because this issue is a matter of principle? Well, not just for any principles, but for first principles. For God-given principles, and God-given freedoms. [Read more...]

Thoughts from the “Tao Teh Ching” translated by the “Chinese Chesterton”

My Chinese Catholic friend, John C.H. Wu wrote several works that I have enjoyed reading over the past several years. I’ve shared posts with you from several of his books, namely Beyond East and West, The Science of Love, and Interior Carmel, the Threefold Way of Love. It is not for nothing that Frank Sheed called John “the Chinese Chesterton.” [Read more...]

Praying the Novena with the Dominican Sisters of Nashville

Nothing tells your children that you believe in the power of prayer more than praying the rosary with them. And nothing tells them how powerful you think prayer is than praying a novena and the rosary every evening after dinner. [Read more...]
