Beyond Labor Day: How To Be Catholic at Work
Last edited 1st September 2014

I say this with great trepidation, because of the aforesaid condition of my desk, but I think you’re supposed to keep your desk clean. I even once confessed my messy desk to a priest. For my penance he told me to organize my desk. I said, No, that was impossible, and he gave me a different penance.

Last edited 28th August 2014

Why I Love My Invisible Friend - By Father Robert Barron
Last edited 25th August 2014

One of the favourite taunts of the New Atheists is that religious people believe in an “invisible friend.” They are implying, of course, that religion is little more than a pathetic exercise in wishful thinking, a reversion to childish patterns of projection and self-protection. It is well past time, they say, for believers to grow up, leave their cherished fantasies behind, and face the real world. In offering this characterisation, the New Atheists are showing themselves to be disciples of the old atheists such as Feuerbach, Marx, Comte, and Freud, all of whom made more or less similar observations.

This is my Body, Broken for You
Last edited 24th August 2014

“Our hearts were made for You, O Lord, and they are restless until they rest in You.”If I had to describe my faith journey in one sentence, I would steal these words from St. Augustine. From a young age I was consumed by a desire for perfection. I strove for perfection as a student, dancer, daughter, and friend. To me, imperfection was equivalent to failure.
