Our ‘Separated Brethren’ Are Loved by God
In recent months, I’ve discussed many
faith issues, and presented the Catholic view on these topics. Of course, that
only makes sense, since this essay series is titled “The Merry Catholic.” For
example, a few weeks ago, the subject was Catholic apologetics...

Apple Watch Part 2: Jealousy and Betrayal
Last week I discussed my new Apple
Watch. The main focus of that column was the financial implication of the
purchase; that is, whether it made much sense to spend $400 on a tiny wrist
computer that does a few interesting applications along with telling tim...

Judgmental Hypocrite in the Mirror
Twain once said, “It ain’t those parts of the Bible that I can’t understand
that bother me, it’s is the parts that I DO understand.” Well,

previous day I did something strenuous, such as help a friend move, whic...

Receiving Communion: Irreverence or Ignorance?
Ever go to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles?

Celebrate Until It Hurts
If you read last week’s column, you know
the topic was the proliferation of “look at me!” show-off athletes in sporting

old-school approach, epitomized by the player who simply hands the ...

Who Is Jesus, and What Did He Do?
A friend of mine has a four-year-old
grandson, and recently the little boy attended a baptism at my parish. In our
church, there is a huge crucifix above the tabernacle, in the middle of the
sanctuary. It’s a gorgeous sculpture, and the lifelike image of Je...

Fuddy-Duddies vs. Look-at-Me Generation
Of all the wise lessons about life I
learned from my father, the most important thing he ever taught me is this:
“When you score a touchdown, just hand the ball to the ref, as if you do it
every day.” This was not simply advice to avoid
being one of those e...
