How Overturning Roe v. Wade Can Fix Our Catholic Lives

On the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court voted to overturn Roe v. Wade. While this decision will prove to be far less significant on the ground than both sides imagine, it draws attention to many problems in American life that we need to reflect on. If we use this opportunity, we can also fix our Catholic lives, which in America, are confused and broken. Understanding Authority The Supreme Count was established by the U.S. Constitution as one of the three branches of the federal government. Its purpose is to interpret the … Continue

Elementary Tutoring with Mrs. Michael

Among the old schoolmasters, it was said that “The beginning is half of the whole.” The first years of education set the tone for all that follows. However, parents often assume that the early years are “easy” and they can teach their children themselves. Some parents certainly can, but many parents cannot–and they learn this the hard way.

It occurred just as the Mass was about to begin, but I knew there was something really important there. The words that struck me were these: Loving Father,as on my earthly pilgrimageI now receive Your beloved Sonunder the veil of a sacrament,may I one day see him face to face in glory,who lives and reigns with You for ever. As I read that prayer (which I read … Continue
