Like von Glasersfeld, I am a radical constructivist. I believe each person’s actual knowledge and thought processes are fundamentally unknowable to any other individual. We can only know what's on ...

A great excerpt from St. Theophan the Recluse's writings on prayer.
Contemplation of God is the pious reflection on divine properties and actions, and about our necessary response to them.

And now for something a wee bit controversial. 
Historians estimate that Cromwell oversaw the destruction of 97% of English art and cultural artifacts. Thousands suffered brutal beheadings and executions because of his treason laws. ISIS is the ...

What may be the most vital innovation of the 21st century? The iPhone? Internet?
Probably the Flow Hive.
If bees go extinct, the consequences for global economies would be dire. Luckily, Cedar Anderson and his father Stuart have come up with a rather ingenious invention that could literally help save ...

Sin, more than a moral fault, is a spiritual disease. Like leprosy makes the body numb and prone to injury and decay, sin deadens the senses of the soul and draws it into deeper and deeper sorrow. Jesus alone can cleanse us of our sin.

The eyeless cat is always watching you. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. It's the reason why little kids like to think they're invisible when they close their eyes. Because they can't see you, how could you possibly see them? That'...

"But Catholics worship saints!"

Yes, yes, in fact, we do. And you probably do too whether you realize it or not. Let's take a look at the Old Testament and see what idolatry really means in the context of the culture and time period. Only then can we properly assess what does and does not constitute idolatry in the modern context.
We do not in fact worship statues, but rather the people they represent. We do this in the archaic sense of the term "worship," which means giving honor to someone, usually through a symbolic gestu...

Right. You might want to tag your comment onto the post at the blog. It's a really good addition and great clarification.

Thanks!

A slight correction to my earlier controversy.
The Protestant Reformation was necessary and inevitable. It was a lot like a forest fire. It cleared room for new growth, but it didn't do a whole lot of good in and of itself. Also, we need to hel...

Space is not the final frontier. There is a greater one we will all face, and we will face it together.

What is the rationale behind Jesus’ commandment to forgive others? Is forgiveness always the wisest or best path? 
We are commanded by the Lord to forgive fully, for each offense committed, no exceptions. But why should we forgive? What is the rationale behind Jesus’ commandment?

Introduction
Geoffrey Miller is a catechist, cantor, and subdiaconate candidate at Our Lady's Maronite Catholic Parish in Austin, TX. He is also a Camaldolese Benedictine Oblate. As a twenty-six-year-old graduate student at Texas State University-San Marcos, he lives the evangelical counsel of poverty by force of circumstance, not by choice. When not consuming ramen noodles or writing papers, Geoffrey enjoys learning about theology, especially as it pertains to living out an authentic Catholic spirituality in the modern world. He also has one of the creepiest, most demented imaginations you will ever encounter.
