Jesus was a Feminist: Catholocism and Gender Equality
Last edited 1st October 2014

An ideal feminism incorporates the virtue of humility. It’s saying we all have something valuable to offer whether male or female but neither of us have everything, therefore we respect our differences and build each up. We need each other (Genesis 1:26-28).

Last edited 29th September 2014

Pope St. Gregory the Great distinguishes between angels and archangels: "Those who deliver messages of lesser importance are called angels; and those who proclaim messages of supreme importance are called archangels." The Catechism explains: "From infancy to death human life is surrounded by their watchful care and intercession. 'Beside each believer stands an angel as protector and shepherd leading him to life.' Already here on earth the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men united in God" (No. 336).

Catholic Movie Reviews: The Maze Runner
Last edited 22nd September 2014

Yet another young-adult, high-concept novel makes a splash on the big screen hoping to capitalize on the success of The Hunger Games and Divergent. In a visually impressive debut, director Wes Ball gets to show off his action chops and handles a lackluster script with the confidence of a veteran.

Cartoony, Colourful and Happy - Prayer Cards of Saints
Last edited 23rd September 2014

Graphic Designer Jane Maisey was inspired to do the cards when she was seeking the intercession of St. Rita for personal reasons. She looked at what was available and found seriously gloomy cards. “The imagery out there is quite depressing and very old fashioned. It’s not enticing to people, it’s not joyful,” she said.

The Call to Fraternal Correction - A Homily for the 23rd Sunday of the Year
Last edited 8th September 2014

We live in times in which there is a widespread notion that to correct sinners is to “judge” them. Never mind that it is sin that we judge, not the sinner. Never mind that in accusing us of judging, the worldly-minded are themselves doing the very judging they condemn. Never mind any of that; the point of the charge is to seek to shame us into silence.
