Our Mom of Guadalupe

anxiety faith parenting Feb 18, 2020

Our Lady of Guadalupe is such a fascinating apparition of the Blessed Mother. First of all, she poses a real problem to non-believers as she left behind scientifically scrutinized, undeniable proof of a miracle. There is no honest way for “I’ll believe it when I see it” atheists to exist (or protestants who don’t believe in the importance of Mary for that matter). If you don’t know what I’m talking about, Google is your friend. Look up “scientific...

The Darkness of Time and the Light of Faith

faith Jan 20, 2020

In Pope Francis' encyclical On Faith (Lumen Fidei) there is probably enough material to keep me writing for weeks. Obviously I read it with my psychology lenses on.

St. Therese

faith Jan 05, 2020

St. Therese is generally regarded as a cute saint.  She happened to be a very cute little French girl, who wrote with the boldness of someone who just didn’t seem to care what anyone else thought.  She said the types of things that make adults look and go, “kids say the darndest things, isn’t she adorable?”  She said she wanted to spend her time in heaven sending roses to people on earth.  Cute.

If you take a few minutes to look past the flowers...
