Do You Really Believe?

“Do you really believe that when a priest blesses a wafer, it turns into the body of Christ?” he said, ridiculing Catholics. “Are you seriously telling me you believe that?  Are you seriously saying that wine turns into blood?” – Richard Dawkins, atheist I read an amazing article by Little Catholic Bubble in regards to Richard...

Playing the Race Card: Dr. Alveda King Calls Out Jackson and Sharpton

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, knows violence very well.  The assassination of her uncle is only the tip of the iceberg of violence to plague her family. I found this article about Dr. King calling out Revs. Jackson and Sharpton on “playing the race card” in the Trayvon Martin case.  I don’t... Read more »

Reflections Toward the End of Lent

I’m sitting here with my morning “joe” reflecting on the fact that Lent is almost over.  My daughter reminded me the other day that in the beginning of the season I groaned, “This is going to be a long Lent!”  And now Easter is a mere ten days away! This Lenten season was different from... Read more »

A Rush to Judgment: Camera Hounds Rev. Al Sharpton & Rev. Jesse Jackson Jump on the Trayvon Martin Case

Over the years, whenever Rev. Al Sharpton or Rev. Jesse Jackson got involved in a high publicity story, I would start cringing.  The self-serving and so-called “black leaders” ignore so many things going on in the black community that their shameless bandwagon of self-promotion is pathetic. Have you ever seen either of them at a... Read more »

No one speaks for the Catholic Church quite like Mother Angelica!  She started EWTN with $600 and a determination that God wanted her to build a Catholic broadcasting station. Illness has silenced her, but her legacy will live on and these “classics” will be teaching Catholics for generations to come!    

And With One Yes, She Changed the World

Can you even imagine it?  You are a young woman (bear with me guys for a minute) and an angel appears to you to tell you that you will become pregnant. And the baby will be the Son of God. And you’re still a virgin. I don’t know how Mary kept her cool.  This was... Read more »

Fr. Maletta was at the rally Friday.  He is a powerful speaker and we are blessed to have him! Some priests are afraid to speak the truth during homilies.  Fr. Maletta is not one of them.

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, has had an interesting journey in life.  I recommend you read her book “How Can the Dream Survive if We Murder the Children? for the full story.  This video in her own words is a chilling telling of the impact of abortion. My daughter and I attended... Read more »

We Are All Catholic in Chicago! The Stand Up For Religious Freedom Rally!

My daughter and I attended the Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom held at the Federal Plaza (50 W. Adams St.) here in Chicago today.  The weather did not deter the 2500 people who showed up nor did the refusal of the Federal Building to turn on the power so the sound system could be turned...
