More than a form of religious belief and practice, Catholicism represents not only a worldview, but possibly the most complete worldview human history has ever produced.


RIP Frank Vincent

Perhaps no other actor of recent times has injected so much pure character into so little screen time. As fitting of an epitaph as any — there are indeed no scraps in Frank Vincent’s scrapbook. Since any discussion of Frank Vincent inevitably involves shine box references (and rightfully so, since everything about the scene — both songs, the set, […]


Tis the season for transgression…

Possessed as they are of an unrelentingly secularist mindset, our mainstream media seems compelled to commemorate the Christmas season with any variety of anti-Christian content.  This year has proved no different, WaPo recently running a story condemning reverence for the Virgin Mary as a ‘celebration of purity’ that is ‘offensive’ to rape victims. Written by […]


The Asshole Path and The Principle of Compounding Stupidity

The previous weeks have seen not one, but two cases of civilian-on-civilian shootings where initially insignificant slights were escalated to the point where one party dead ended up dead with the other in jail.

And so he […]


Blue Army Chapel and St Joseph Bookstore

I was the beneficiary of a rather fortuitous sequence of events recently. Apparently, in a drive to help municipalities raise funds, the state of Michigan amended a variety of traffic laws, among them accessing turn-arounds on divided highways; where one could previously drive out of a parking lot into the turn-around directly facing the lot exit, now such […]


2016 Easter Feast

Representing as it does the breaking of the Lenten fast, Easter is far and away the most important feast day on the church calendar, with most Orthodox and Catholic ethnic communities having their own particular specialty dishes.  This is especially pronounced among the Central European nationalities so, without further ado, I present my family’s typical […]
