  • Join Me October 13 at the Arch

    Rosary Coast-to-Coast at the Arch in St. Louis We are in a spiritual battle for America’s soul, and we’ve been fighting it all wrong.
    Politics is important. Christians should engage. But politics isn’t enough. And politics isn’t…

  • Rigid vs Squishy

    The opposites of “rigid” are more unflattering than rigidity:
    lenient indulgent broken compromising easy imprecise indefinite inexact irresolute unfixed unreliable accommodating liberal permissive resigned soft-hearted
    And that’s th…

  • All (political) Problems Are Demonic in Nature

    A friend commented on a recent blog of mine that he misses my political analysis. So I need to make this clear: my political analysis is that all problems in the world are demonic in nature.
    I’ll write that again so no one’s confused: all p…

  • How to Be Unpopular

    I’ve always wanted to write a book called How to Lose Friends and Alienate People. But nobody reads autobiographies anymore. So I’ll tell you how to be unpopular, instead.
    Being unpopular is pretty easy. And it’s hard, too. It’s…

  • We Need Prayers

    Please spread the word. Tweet this. Post to Facebook. If you’re Catholic, please forward to your parish office and ask for a blurb in the Sunday bulletin.
    Our nation, the Catcholic Church, and the whole world needs prayer. Why? Just read this pos…

  • At Whom Is Bishop Barron Angry?

    I was gladdened to see Bishop Robert Barron’s tweets of anger about the Pew survey. Watch the attached video. (You will also be happy to hear the Pew survey didn’t shock the bishop.)
    I wish, though, his excellency had addressed the real cau…

  • St Lawrence of Rome

    Do you have a favorite saint?
    I try not to, but it’s hard to resist, isn’t it?
    It’s hard to resist the temptation to feel some strong pull of a saint. Which is why I feel compelled to write about St. Lawrence of Rome today, his feast …

  • Don’t Trust Father Don Draper

    This was one of my favorite episodes of Mad Men.
    The post-Vatican II Church epitomizes Don Draper’s very accurate definition of advertising. “Whatever you’re doing … it’s okay. You’re okay.”
    I’m Not Ok…

    By “go,” he was referring to Mass.
    By “they,” he meant the people who dress like tramps, talk and laugh through Mass, and know nothing about the Church’s…

  • Mass Killings Are the Fruit of Modernism

    Simple minds seek simple answers.
    A man kills innocents with a gun, and the simple mind blames the gun. When a dog sees an approaching shadow, he attacks his tail.
    Mass Killings Are Modernism In Action Modernism leads us to simple, but wrong, answers. …

  • Lousy Bishops

    (Disclosure: I am a traditional Catholic.)
    Did you know that for every person who enters the Catholic Church in America six leave? It looks like this:
    Incoming Catholics Outgoing Catholics 1 6 Why?
    Simple answers are often problematic, but on…

  • What About False Prophets (and Kooks)?

    A prophet is someone who has the gift of recognizing how current behaviors, beliefs, and trends will bring calamity in the future. Prophets tell us what not to do, and predict the dire consequences that will befall us if we don’t listen.
    And we d…
