As I recover from eye surgery, it's a good time to pray to St. Raphael, patron of healing. http://seasonsofgrace.net/st-raphael-patron-of-healing-pray-for-me/
On September 29, the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of the three Archangels who have been venerated throughout the history of the Church: Michael (from the Hebrew Who Is Like God?), who defends the friends of God against Satan and all his evil angels; Gabriel (the

I hereby endorse Donald J. Trump for President of the United States of America.
Back in March, before the field of presidential candidates had been narrowed to two (ignoring the minor party candidates who have no chance of winning), I published a post titled "What If the Choice Comes Down to Hillary or Trump?" My conclusion at that time--which I repeated in print and on the radio--was that

No One's Saying This--But Brad and Angelina Don't Have to Divorce!
There is trouble in the Pitt-Jolie household. Actress Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from her husband, actor Brad Pitt. The couple, who met in 2004 on the set of "Mr. and Mrs. Smith", have had a seven-year relationship, and married in 2014. They have six adopted

I cannot imagine maintaining a marriage in Hollywood. The pressures internal and external must be so profound. I am not surprised that reporters that cover it have seen the tragedy and come to predict it, eating people up and spitting them out, ready to move on to the next story.

It's terrible that they then normalize the divorces of Hollywood as indicating the pressures of the average family, normalizing divorce as an expectation and not an exception.

I think there have been many public views into the family's cracks, but they've also been mostly protected from the media's outright criticism. The lack of reporting is no indication for the reality of their life. You yourself reported a separation, with separate rooms. What a noble length to go to to keep the family together!

I make no claims that the divorce is prudent because I don't know their story. But that's the same reason I make no claims to rashness, either.

I think the only Christian response to the concerns of strangers' lives is to pray for them and grieve for the tragedy we can see and to build up our own community in tangible ways so that they don't face the struggles of Hollywood couples.

In Belgium, the first-ever euthanasia of a child. What a tragedy!
There's a terrible story out of Belgium today: A young child has been euthanized in what's being hailed as a "landmark case"--the first time Belgium's two-year-old "mercy killing" legislation has been applied in a case involving a minor. No details have been released regarding the child whose

Bishops Rebuke "Catholics for Choice" for Deceptive Pro-Abortion Ad 
Bishop Joseph E. Strickland, bishop of the Diocese of Tyler, took to Twitter last night to correct the assertion by pro-abortion lobby group Catholics for Choice that “Public funding for abortion is a Catholic social justice value.” The abortion advocacy group ran a full-page ad in dozens of newspapers around the country under the heading

It's Autumn--Time for Super-Duper Crockpot Cookery! This is how I turn out great meals with almost no effort. http://seasonsofgrace.net/its-autumn-time-for-super-duper-crockpot-cookery/
I am a lazy cook. There was a time when I spent a lot of time poring over cookbooks, fine-tuning shopping lists, experimenting with bananas flambeau, stuffing a rainbow trout and stitching it closed. That was Then, this is Now. Then, I was learning to separate eggs to create
