Let’s Talk About Money

Hopefully, this will be my last word on the scandals that erupted in the Catholic Church in 2018-2019. People frequently ask me what we, the laity, can do about it. I always tell them the same thing. The laity have no ecclesiastical power over the hierarchy. So there really isn't much we can do at... Continue Reading →

Why Do Regular Catholics Join Ordinariate Parishes?

Incarnation Catholic Church, Ordinariate Parish in Orlando, Florida with Bishop Steven J. Lopes on October 23, 2016. What is an Ordinariate parish?

A Challenge to Bishops

Your Excellencies, this is meant to be read as a friendly challenge, with nothing but love and respect as the tone and subtext. Please don't interpret it any other way.

Keeping Your Kids Catholic

As a trained catechist, and Catholic apologist, I'm frequently asked by Catholic parents how to keep their kids Catholic. Let me begin by saying you have to do it yourself!
