Practice What You Teach

By Adam Minihan | June 3, 2014

My family and I were blessed this past weekend to attend the Ordination to the Transitional Diaconate in our Diocese. A young man, whose journey to the priesthood we have been privileged to witness and be part of, was being ordained along with three other men. The Ordination Mass was just heavenly. There was so…

7 Lessons from Max Lucado’s “You Are Special”

By Adam Minihan | June 3, 2014

 Max Lucado’s children’s book You Are Special (Max Lucado’s Wemmicks) is a favorite of mine and a beautiful story with many facets to it and much to be learned from it. It is a sad story of judgment; of pride and slavery; of sin and brokenness.  It is also a beautiful story of witness and hope –…

By Adam Minihan | June 3, 2014

At a Sunday afternoon Regina Caeli address, Pope Francis instructed the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square to:“Bother your pastors, disturb your pastors, all of us pastors, so that we will give you the milk of grace, of doctrine, and of guidance.” (watch the short 2 minute video of his address below)The Pope spoke these…

Someone proposes swapping members of Congress for POWs

By Adam Minihan | June 3, 2014

It’s a idea with a lot of merit, but I think we have to stipulate that the POWs be given their seats in Congress. Otherwise our Congresscritters might return to continue making war on us.

Unguessed Genius

By Adam Minihan | June 3, 2014

So this past weekend, I put up a little silly game about taking a single letter from a book, TV show or film title and seeing what you wind up with (“Lord of the Rigs: Lure fishing in Middle Earth”).  Lots of people responded with some very funny stuff.  But one reader, JJG, has gone…

A reader passes on a couple of pieces about the Dark Enlightenment Racialists

By Adam Minihan | June 3, 2014

Mouthbreathing Machiavellis Dream Of A Silicon Reich …and a little follow up by the same guy: Give Dictatorship A Chance? She writes: I think your past concerned postings about this lunatic group are vindicated even though most readers (myself included) dismiss them as educated lunatics. However, they do seem to have some influence on billionaires…

Our Insane Culture of Death

By Adam Minihan | June 3, 2014

‘Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.’ – G.K. Chesterton It is astonishing enough to me that a non-Christian like Steinem can be so stone blind to the obvious connection between violence against the unborn and violence against the rest of…
