  • 05/24/17--00:00: Hope: A Misunderstood Virtue
  • We all face difficult moments of darkness and anxiety when things can become difficult. Some may become disillusioned with life and lose hope. During these challenging times, hope can also be misunderstood. We may think that it is having a positive attitude or being optimistic. We may place our hope in things of this world, […]

  • 06/06/17--00:00: Your True North
  •   Many today are getting lost amongst the busy consumer culture, bogged down with appearing successful and fitting in with those around them. This culture tells us that the newest and fanciest cars will make us happy. It tells us that having a multimillion-dollar home will finally bring us that satisfaction that we have been […]

    Harry Potter and the Cursed Child has a host of artistic problems, but its most profound failures are of moral understanding. Whereas the original novels by J.K. Rowling embraced the Christian sanctity of life, understanding that death was an evil, and expressed hope for repentance and forgiveness of sins, this late coming play, written by […]

    “If you want to change the world, make your bed.” No, these ‘words of wisdom’ are not my mom’s. This is lesson #1 on Retired Navy Seal and Commander of the US Special Forces Admiral William H.

    There are a number of things that distinguish Catholics from Protestant Christians.  One of these things is a belief in purgatory. Protestants think that simply accepting Jesus Christ as their savior (Solus Christus, Sola fide) guarantees that they will go to straight to heaven. Catholic Doctrine, however, says there are no guarantees. Purgatory might best be described […]

    What will the future be like? Our inability to answer this question with certainty has never stopped us from wondering and guessing, both about our personal futures and the future of the world. During the past century, the speculations about the latter have grown more numerous, diverse and elaborate than ever. Stories set in some […]

    I once had a priest tell me, after I spent a while explaining to him all the concerns I had running through my head as a college senior, that God does not compartmentalize. Every day, every decision that I make, and everything that happens to me in that day, is for a greater purpose. I’ve […]

    Once upon a time there lived three theological virtues named Faith, Hope and Love. Their house was modest, and just the right size for them to dwell and exercise their respective entities while living in common. They moved in a way that accommodated each other in a wonderful choreography. They deferred to one another in […]

    I entered the Catholic Church in 2010, but my wife and I turned slowly away from the popular ideological goals and dreams of this world a few years before that. She has leapt ahead of me now in this progress towards eternity, which is fitting as she also lead me in life by her understanding […]

  •   “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”  Sun Tzu- The Art […]

    Feeling alone. We all have felt it. The sense that no one cares or needs you. Though one might be surrounded by dozens of people, the feeling still may creep up on you. I felt this way in the middle of Marine Corps boot camp. I was 18 years old and though I was part […]

      Fear and faith are not two sides of the same coin as that would make them binary, either or, all, or nothing.  Rather, they would be more easily seen as always being present, but in different proportions.  Take the example of the “glass half full”; the glass is always full if you expand your […]

    November 11, 2017 marks the fifteenth (15th) anniversary of the shooting death of my son, Aaron Dougherty. More essentially, this date also marks the 15th anniversary of my yearning for hope for Aaron in the Resurrection of the Paschal Mystery. Aaron had been severely depressed for most of his 26-year-old life. He died in a […]

    These days we hear a lot about “snowflakes.” These are young adults who must be protected from the least slight, whether real or imagined. Fortitude is the virtue that opposes this weakness. In one word, fortitude is strength. But of what kind? Fortitude has two sides: courage and toughness. Courage is the strength that one […]

      Looking back on my life I can truly say, God has been very patient with me and also very gracious toward me. But it took me quite some time to be able to see and understand that. I was fortunate, while growing up, to have good parents who both had a strong Catholic faith. […]

     “There are difficult moments in life, but with hope the soul goes forward and looks ahead to what awaits     us.” – Pope Francis  When we are happy and feel accepted and loved, life often feels positive. When we feel alone, rejected and insecure, life feels challenging. Faith is not about feelings; we always have to […]

    December 13th—the Feast Day of St. Lucy, I stood aside a grave of another unborn child. It is unnatural for a father to bury his child. Standing in a cemetery after the funeral Mass for your miscarried child is truly a surreal and somber experience. When humans encounter death—especially the loss of a family member […]

    BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII.  SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

    In my younger days, I was always a dreamer. I was, and to a certain extent still am someone who enjoys dreaming about all kinds of things. On one level there is nothing wrong with having big dreams. It’s natural for anyone.  But if it becomes a habit, like it did with me, it can […]
