I am currently in the middle of “The Rise of Superman” by Steven Kotler.  It shares his research over what happens when a person exhibits mastery over a skillset in a very specific moment of time.  He uses, as anecdotes, a sizable dosage of extreme sports–skiing, surfing, skateboarding, and rock climbing–and how, within the course of the last decade,... Read More

virginmary What’s the Big Deal About Mary?

Subscribe to Nick Alexander’s blog today. I’ve been hanging out a lot on reddit lately.  A non-Catholic had asked yesterday as to why Catholics pray to Mary, and why so many Hail Mary’s are prayed in succession.  What follows was my response. Noted Protestant revivalist Jonathan Edwards had a term “the scarlet thread of salvation.” That means,... Read More

test Youth Ministry Survey

Take the survey. A few posts back, I shared my desire to craft a resource that will assist Catholic youth ministers in their vocation. But for me to do this effectively, I need one minute of your time. Could you fill out a survey for me? I have embedded the survey right here, so you can just answer and be done with it. It should be easy-breezy. Your voice matters; your... Read More

disney Ten Things I Learned From My DisneyWorld Vacation

My experience was both very positive, but also a learning... Read More

stressed I Need Your Help (for Youth Ministry)

Youth Ministers are extremely stressed. Hi all! One of my passions is to find resources to assist youth workers in their arduous–sometimes thankless–tasks. These folks are on the front lines, trying to share the Gospel with teenagers, but are often met with resistance, sometimes by the students themselves, sometimes by their parents, and sometimes by their own parish!... Read More

piefight Declaring A Truce in the Youth Ministry Wars

(Or… Another Way Catholic Youth Ministers Can Help the Church) Subscribe to Nick Alexander’s blog today. It’s no secret that there is a crisis in catechesis in this country. Many teens who would otherwise be at church, are unable to attend due to their parents’ apathy. Kids are growing up without knowing the basics of the faith. When asked about... Read More

teleprompt Adventures in Video Recording

Believe me when I say that I am very grateful whenever somebody gives me some sort of occupational affirmation on LinkedIn. But some have affirmed that I am a quality video maker. Had they witnessed all the activity this morning, they’d realize they were being a little too generous. One of my goals this week was to update my CMG booking page. One of the tasks involved... Read More

holyspiritchildren Holy Ghost, Descend Upon Your Children (Video)

A couple of weeks ago, in preparation for the Pentecost-specific Prayer Meeting Podcast, I came across this forgotten treasure.

Now that Pentecost has arrived, these are times where we continually reflect upon the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We cannot accomplish anything without the... Read More

holyspiritsing Top 20: Pentecost Chants, Hymns and Songs

Now that Pentecost Sunday is upon us, it is time to reveal the results.

maryupperroom How I Discovered A Marian Pentecost Hymn

As a Christian musician, I love the opportunity to learn new songs that could help awaken my faith.  Worship songs have a tendency to get under our skin, to help remind us of central truths of the Gospel narrative, and provide color and emotions to the basic fact. As a Catholic, I love the opportunities that the liturgical calendar provide.  For a full year, we are directed... Read More
