We recently had a funeral for a family member. I was a bit annoyed by how much the priest talked about Jesus and how little he talked about the person who died. Isn’t the funeral supposed to be more of a celebration of the person’s life?
You bring up a phenomenal point. Most funerals are exactly what you were expecting. They are either crafted to be a “celebration of life” or as a way to “formalize” one’s goodbye. But this isn’t what a funeral is primarily about.Read More

Apologetics as a form of teaching and defending the Catholic faith is very ancient. In fact, many Scripture scholars believe the Gospel of Luke was originally written as an apologetic teaching. In the earliest Christian period, apologetics was a way of responding to pagan accusations, so the earliest apologists were defending the church from pagan persecution.

On Election Day, I made a Holy Hour at my parish, sitting with Jesus for a while. I didn’t pray for any specific outcome in the elections, but rather, I held up to him all the rancor, all the division, all the evil talk, all the scandal, all the weaponized ideology, all the difficult problems facing us, all the hardheartedness, all the barely suppressed contempt and hatred, and asked his mercy on us.
