Good explanation of the Most Holy Trinity. 

Good counter argument against non-Trinitarian Christians. 

Even better demonstration of the association fallacy.

The truth is, most of the Trinity haters have never really thought through the scriptural problems of the alternatives. Even if there were some other "imitations" in mythology it wouldn't change that the Trinity is the only formulation that fits scripture.

Had a great conversation with the Kindergarten class today. 

Kindergartner: Did God make toys?

Me: Yes, He made toys. 

Kindergartner: Did He make the earth?

Me: Yes, He made the earth. 

Kindergartner: Did God make us?

Me: Of course, He made us. 

Kindergartner: Why did God make us?

Me: Because He loves us and wanted someone to love him back. 

Kindergartner: How did He make us?

Me: He made us out of love... and lots of chemistry. 

When they're in 2nd grade, I'll start telling them we were also made out of dirt. :)

I was teaching in the Religious Education today....

Me: St. John Paul II died during the last year I was in college.

4th grader: When was that?

Me: 10 years ago.

4th grader: amazed Did you have a mullet back then?

Oh those kids. :)

Apparently when you reach a certain level of mathiness, you stop liking Pi day. I personally just like pies.

An article about Volko Runkhe, designer of Fire in the Lake, a game that I wish to play more. This article really captures the experience of the games he designs.

Good read for those who want to understand a little bit about the wargame hobby.


CIA analyst Volko Ruhnke has found a way to bring the true war experience to board games. Is that a winning formula?

Blaise Pascal: Do little things as though they were great, because of the majesty of Jesus Christ who does them in us and who lives our life; and do the greatest things as though they were little and easy, because of His omnipotence.

Does anyone want a 5$ coupon for Comixology? If you use it (in a 10$ purchase), I'll get a coupon, too. http://refer.comixology.com/v2/share/6143855039392697113

Comixology is website where you can buy digital comic books. You can read them on your computer or on your phone or tablet. I find it very handy because I found as I get older having physical books are a pain when I have limited space and the duty to move them when I move. So, I find it a good service. 
Read over 50,000 comics and over 700 free comics available from publishers such as Marvel, DC, Image, BOOM, IDW, Top Shelf, and Oni Press on your iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire, Android, Windows, browser and more.

7th grader: Can you really sell your soul to someone?
Me: No, it's like saying that you can own a cloud or a star. You couldn't possibly even contain them.
7th grader: But, if you were able to touch a star, would your hand go right through it?
Me: No, it would be way to hot. You'd burn up. 
7th grader: But, aren't they small?
Me: No, stars are like suns of their own solar system! 

And then I realized this was the first time someone told her what stars were.

I have been assigned by Bishop O'Connell to be the chaplain at Notre Dame High school, Lawrence, NJ. This assignment is in addition to my normal work at Our Lady of Sorrows-St. Anthony parish. While I look forward to this challenge and even fun of being a chaplain. Please, pray for me, my parishioners and now my students for this upcoming year.

A video about thought germs. 

I don't think I agree with the notion that thoughts have agency in themselves. But, it is an interesting idea.

There's a serious lack of board games in my day today. I think I'm having con withdrawal.
