The Scapular of Our Lady of Mt Carmel

The Scapular of Our Lady of Mt Carmel

I am pro with my scapular. Yes, many faithful Catholics wear the scapular, and I am ever so proud whenever I see it creeping up someone’s back, or I see it hanging out of a child’s shirt. But let me ask you this, how quickly can you knot it so it won’t fall off whileContinue Reading

Father’s Day

Father’s Day

So today I am going to do something entirely different. I want to tell you about my Dad. My mother was very young when I was born, and unfortunately, that marriage did not work very well for her. I have never really gone into it with her, to be honest it really isn’t any of myContinue Reading

Never Forget

Never Forget

I am a patriot. Now that doesn’t mean I feel our country is the greatest nation in the world or any of that nonsense. We have our problems, and those problems are very real ones. I have often commented on the slow steady decrease of morality in our nation, I’m not all that happy withContinue Reading

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

The single most important day of the year. Let me rephrase, the single day you must never forget. Seriously. If you forgot, right this second, get off the computer or phone or whatever, go out in the yard and pick the prettiest flower you can find. (The neighbor’s will do in a pinch) Take itContinue Reading

Learning to Bilocate

Deacon classes are always challenging, but my latest task has taken the cake. I am currently studying bi-location. What the heck is bi-location you ask? Well, to be honest I’m not really all that sure, not having really accomplished it yet, but as I understand, many of the Saints were able to be in two placesContinue Reading

Praeconium

This is the night. There are so many things I would love to share about this most beautiful night, but as a man aspiring to the deaconate, there is something so special this night that I fell odd talking about anything else. The Praeonium, or Exultet is the most beautiful song that has ever beenContinue Reading

Adoration of the Cross

Good Friday is a tough day to live through. On one hand, it is a celebration of what Christ did for us, but on the other hand, what he had to endure was so traumatic, that celebration just doesn’t seem the right thing to do at all. So we starve ourselves to help unify withContinue Reading

Finally Lent is Over!

Well, it will be tonight anyways. First things first, yesterday I talked about what I feel is an abuse. I want you to put that out of your head. Forget about it. Don’t let it mess with one of the most beautiful Masses of the year! Tonight is Holy Thursday, and only the Eater VigilContinue Reading

The Washing of Feet

“He took a towel and tied it around his waist. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and dry them with the towel around his waist” John 13:4-5 This post is not being written so that you can run up to your clergy and tell them they areContinue Reading

Spy Wednesday

Tomorrow we celebrate betrayal. Sounds funny doesn’t it, to “celebrate” betrayal? Tomorrow we remember Judas going out to the chief priests to sell out Jesus. Guess what? All the apostles sold Him out. You and I have also sold Him out. There is so much betrayal here that there is no way I could putContinue Reading
