A Lesson on Love from Ronald Reagan

03/11/2016 Comments (2)

President Ronald Reagan was in love with several women at the same time, and he was completely unabashed about it. In fact, he wrote about them in a Christmas letter to his wife, Nancy.

That’s because Nancy was all of those women.

The letter, dated December 25, 1981, was read at Mrs. Reagan’s funeral service in the White House by Former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney. That was the Reagans’ first Christmas in the White House.

In the letter, President Reagan described his admiration for all of the women he’d come to love so deeply—mother of his children, First Lady of his presidency, the sentimental and fun woman, the “peewee powerhouse” that worked beside him on their ranch, and...READ MORE

Surrogate Parenting Damages Families and Offends Human Dignity

03/11/2016 Comments (3)

A disturbing trend we hear more and more about is “surrogate parenting”, where a woman agrees to carry someone else's pregnancy.

In a bizarre case out of California, a set of triplets was born two weeks ago to a surrogate mother and a "father" who is a 50-year-old deaf postal worker living with his parents and is the sole caretaker for his disabled mother. His mother is completely bedridden and in need of constant nursing care. Additionally, his elderly father has said the children cannot be raised in their home.

Melissa, the surrogate mother, agreed to carry the pregnancy, unaware at the time of the agreement with the man seeking fatherhood that she would carry triplets. When the...READ MORE

Lent in a Time of Remodeling

03/11/2016 Comment

John Everett Millais, “Christ in the House of His Parents” (1849-1850)

Lent this year may just go down as simultaneously the most ambitious and what-were-we-thinking yet.

I have eight children--which, let’s be honest, is fairly wild in its own right regardless the liturgical season--and an old house, and several months ago my husband and I said to ourselves, “Why don’t we pretend we don’t have a bunch of small children running around everywhere, and remodel our old house?”  “Yes, that seems like a fantastic idea, because our dishwasher doesn’t so much wash anymore, and as nice as the duct tape looks on the kitchen peninsula, it’s probably not a good long term solution.”  

Now I’m at least self-aware enough at age 34 to know that I don’t have the bandwidth or...READ MORE

The Cost of Grace

03/11/2016 Comment

Somehow many people have the strange notion that the Old and New Testaments are opposed and that Jesus supposedly came to get rid of all that Law stuff and preach a gospel where "all we have to do is love each other." In reality, Christ did not come to abolish the Law, but to fulfil it. And we who hope to follow him, though we certainly do well to rejoice in the freedom of Christ, must also remember that Christ frees us to transcend the Law, not to break it.

Evidence for this is seen in many Scripture readings. Wisdom essentially says, "If it's tough just keeping a bead on mundane earthly matters, who can possibly hope to know anything about heaven?" We can all relate to this....READ MORE

Waiting for 60 Minutes to Help Us “See” the Unborn Child

I agree with 60 Minutes' Scott Pelley. And I hope he eventually thinks through all the ramifications of what he stated last year in an important interview about his decision to air what CBS has characterized as the program’s “most disturbing footage in its 47-year history” related to the mass killing of Syrian men, women and children with sarin gas.

Pelley stated:

We wanted the world to see what this was, in all of its ugliness. They killed more than a thousand people, 400 children! You can read about that all day, but if you don't see it, I don't believe the impact truly hits you…Our hope was to put together all of the available evidence in one place, in one story, so people could truly...READ MORE

Did You Know That Jesus Had No Faith?

03/10/2016 Comments (15)

The Christ Pantocrator of the Deesis mosaic (13th-century) in Hagia Sophia (Istanbul, Turkey)

Answer this question: "Did Jesus have faith?" Most will respond with an enthusiastic, "yes!"

I think many of us would naturally respond likewise. The answer is actually the opposite, and I’ll explain why, but first we have to understand the person of Jesus.

Jesus has two natures. That might be news if you're a Jehovah's Witness, but it should be nothing new to Catholics. Jesus has a divine nature (that of God) and a human nature (that of man). These two natures had to be joined in some way. This question, where the two natures are united, earned many heretics their reputation. Some were even punched in the face. (I'm thinking of you, Arius.) The answer is that Jesus' two natures are...READ MORE
