Interactive iPad app that explains the Catholic Mass and more
I refuse to pay more than 99-cents for an app — normally. Usually, I only download the free ones.
This new Catholic app, “The Mass Explained,” is so brilliant and so useful, it’s not only worth the $25, it’s worth buying an iPad just to have it. How could you justify paying $25 for an iPad app? I’ll get to that in just a moment. First, you need to watch this video: More…
Agios Theotokos of the Inexhaustible Chalice
I asked a simple question in a Catholic/Protestant discussion group yesterday, knowing it would spark mixed reactions:
Jesus is God; Mary is the mother of Jesus; Mary is the mother of God. Any objections?

While I don’t think the crisis facing marriage in America can be fully and accurately assessed from a purely economic standpoint, I found this video entertaining, insightful, and More…
“After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?” was a the title of a serious medical paper, published by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva in the Journal of Medical Ethics, last year on February, 23.

Opponents of Alabama’s proposed fetal heartbeat bill see it as an attempt to strike a blow against legalized abortion. If that sounds like an understatement, it is. There’s way more to it than that.

If passed, Alabama would become the third state, after North Dakota and Arkansas, to make it illegal to perform an abortion once a heartbeat can be detected. More…
