The Gospel Of “Us Against Them”

The gospel of “Us Against them” in which our enemies become our footstools- with God’s help- is an intriguing mindset.

Talk about answered prayers as we spill blood and […]

Prayer Quote For The Day

It is not possible to engage in the direct apostolate without being a soul of prayer. We must be aware of oneness with Christ, as he was aware of oneness with his Father. Our activity is truly apostolic only insofar as we permit him to work in us and through us with his power, with his desire, with his love. […]

How Can I Believe In A God I Can’t See?

It may seem reasonable to trust in only those things detectable by the senses. However, upon serious reflection, this position lacks the explanatory power to account for even the most fundamental realities of life. The viewpoint that “seeing is believing” assumes that all reality is comprised of physical matter. This idea represents a crass form of  materialism. In other words, for something to exist, […]
