[Announcement]: Need Help for Book on Youth Ministry
Over the years, I have seen the news when it comes to participation in youth groups. In many places, it is plummetting. And many who do spend a good amount of time in these groups are, sadly underprepared of knowing our faith, knowing why we believe, and knowing how to make the Catholic faith come alive for them.
It’s very disconcerting.
I know my experience in participating... Read More

Wisdom – The Gift God Wants To Give You
This past Wednesday I had been invited to be the main speaker for a senior class day retreat. The theme for the retreat was “Praying Our Decision,” and in talking with the organizers, it was determined that, being seniors, they were on the cusp of making life-long decisions that would determine their life journeys.
One thing I know about this generation: they have... Read More

Too Many Songs! How to Master the Hymnal
A few weeks ago I was speaking to a member of the choir at my church about the state of our music choices during liturgies. I am only a guy in the pew with my young family, but I thought there were certain times when the music choices reflected poorly in some liturgical seasons. Songs during the season of Lent, for example, should reflect a tone of repentance and personal... Read More

Memories of A Giant: Fr. Benedict Groeschel
I am really shaken right now.
One of the modern day unsung saints of our times has just passed away. Fr. Benedict Groeschel, founder of the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, author of dozens of books, television and radio host, commentator, and public speaker has passed away last night from an undisclosed illness. He was 81.
I first became aware of him in my college years,... Read More
Gospel Lessons from The Wizard of Oz
I have to share with you all a personal anecdote that has affected me of late.
Reading the Book
Over the last few weeks, I have been reading to my daughter “The Wizard of Oz”, the book by Frank L. Baum.
This has been made possible because of three factors: first, she is familiar enough with the 1939 movie of the same name. Luckily, she has yet to see any of the... Read More

Review: Ragamuffin (2014)
In the summer between my high school graduation and my entry into college, I have vivid memories of working in a dull office building in New York City, where I lived. From my commute, I was able to finally hear the strains of Christian contemporary radio, which had a spotty reception in certain parts of the city.
Imagine my joy, then, when I had heard “Awesome God”... Read More
