Posted on December 29, 2020 in: ACA

'Be Still and Know That I Am God'
Of the many Scripture passages that I love, I think my favorite is the one I have framed in my office which reads, “Be still and know that I am God.” (Psalm 46:10). It is ironic because Psalm 46 was most probably written during a time of war. When God speaks, He is telling those caugh...

Her heroism as a soldier exemplified for us what Confirmation commissions us to do on the spiritual level as public witnesses of our Lord. While Confirmation is intrinsically connected to bein...

Late last night, a plan of reorganization was filed with the United States Bankruptcy Court in the District of Connecticut, to settle the Diocese’s Chapter 11 reorganization case.

Knights Templar March For Life in Nation's Capital
The 50th Annual March For Life in Washington, D.C. was unique for me on several levels. First and foremost because it was the first post-Roe March, and the joy of the marchers celebrating that fact was palpable. Also unique was the theme for this year’s March for Life, “Next Steps: Marching into a Post-Roe America” emphasizing the need, despite the absence of Roe v. Wade, for pro-life advocates to continue defending the unborn, both on the state and federal level. It was unique because Jesus spoke there -  well, at least the actor who plays Him ...
