I say you haven't written about the real meaning of Christmas if it can't be properly illustrated with a nice corpse painting

What about your kids?  How do you raise them Catholic in a church that's full of wretched sinners?

"Catholics have wide latitude in making prudential judgments about public policy and firearms.  It is to be absolutely acknowledged that because Gunlandians view firearms as ordinary household items, no more problematic than a truck or a dog** or a water heater, we tend to dismiss out of hand concerns about gun ownership as so much noise.  Planning to ban pipes and nails, too?  Huh? Huh?

"It’s a bias to be conceded.

"But at the same time, Gunlandians have difficulty not scorning people who get shocked, just shocked, to discover that meat comes from animals, and that furthermore you must kill the animal to get at the meat part.  It is challenging to take seriously policy proposals from people who are living a life so utterly divorced from reality as we know it."

Talk about the blind being made to see . . . today was the day my Gospel reflection ran at CatholicMom.com.  These are written way way way in advance, so it's always interesting to see what happens when I re-pray the same passage when the date comes around.  Or, as in today's case, when that other thing happened.

A priest we know did something very good for our daughter recently, and my husband asked me to tell the story.  So here it is.

The Immaculate Conception is about the order of things.  My dog is good at that.

People sometimes ask what it takes to be a professional writer. This is the one trait that determines whether or not you're employable.

Can a working university have a rule that it must teach the Catholic faith?  It's not a working university unless it does.
