Why do we obsess over the latest tech, the newest toys, and the hottest ideas? Is the fascination with novelty a virtue or a vice?
The most recent letter accusing the Pope of heresy was left open for anyone to append his name; this is a problem. Not only is it out of place for the laity to correct the Pope in matters of doctrine, but the "heretical statement" itself can quite naturally be interpreted in an orthodox manner.

But a really huge one is feminism. This philosophy is the root of so many... Continue Reading →
In the final part of this series, the challenge of balancing social media in the Christian life receives a serious look.
The recent trend of Catholic schools celebrating "Pride month" is but a natural symptom of a progressive rot in the morality of Catholics. When the three goods of marriage are already cast into doubt by common practice, how can we expect to prevent open homosexuality?
