UPDATE

It’s been 91 days since Michael Schumacher’s skiing accident. Put into an induced coma for a craniectomy, Michael has not regained consciousness.  Please continue to pray for his recovery.

 

I found out early this morning that Michael Schumacher, the 7-time Formula One Champion (1994, 1995, 2000, 2001, 2002,2003, 2004) who retired for a second time last year, sustained a head injury while skiing a few days ago.

Please say a quick prayer for his full recovery, ok? I’ll provide you with more details on his accident and condition in a moment, but let me, the resident gearhead at the Patheos Catholic channel, beg you your prayers. [Read more...]

Andrea Doria, Lepanto, and the Power of the Rosary

When I was a kid, I really enjoyed reading history. Usually, I wasn’t reading the history that I was supposed to be reading in the classroom.  I really didn’t do that well in school until I served two hitches in the Marines and then decided to get out and go to college. Grade school and high school? Homework, schmomework! [Read more...]

A Science Fiction Action Movie With A Heart, Go See “Gravity.”

The normal day at the office is about to get more interesting…

You, and your entire family, will be the richer for it. Empty nesters? Go see it. Newly weds? Go see it. Single, unattached, and happy with that? Go see it. Parents of a young family? It may be too intense for your young ones, but get a sitter and go see it.

For The Good Of The Culture, More Catholic College Professors Like This, Please.

Gonzaga University

Before I wade in too deep here, just know that I am a product of a state college, not a Catholic one. All the same, there are Catholic professors in state supported schools, and in non-Catholic private colleges as well, whom I believe our culture could benefit from if they spoke up like Dr. David DeWolf did recently.

In adoration before Our Eucharistic Lord…

It’s been a week since World Youth Day wrapped up and everyone checked out of Rio and headed back from whence they came. Pilgrims from every clime and place, reinvigorated after resting awhile with their peers, their Church, and the Lord.

“That our own government is knowingly displaying such a lack of tolerance for faithful Christians is outrageous”

Still at it, I see…

So says attorney Erin Mersino. I agree. I’d also agree if our government displayed a lack of tolerance for the teachings of  faithful Jews, Muslims, Quakers, Mormons, Hindus, et al, too.

So a couple of lawyers are throwing another log on the HHS Mandate lawsuit bonfire. Catholic News Service has the skinny, [Read more...]
