Truth, Freedom, and Relativism

In New York City we have veins of subway lines and bus routes that helps you get to where you’re going. While riding on the train or bus, you’re not thinking about the complex system, you are focused on where you have to get and if you’re running late. But given the chance to freely choose a destination with no time constraints or obligations, your mind begins to see the complete picture of the subway system. Life is very much like this. While you’re in the grind, you are really not as aware of your...

Remembering Those Before Us

Remembering Those Before Us

I have so many favorite prayers that I like to pray, or thanks to iTunes, sing to.  One of my favorite ones is the Litany of Saints?  What is so great about the Litany of Saints.  Well, it’s calling on all the Saints to pray for us. Have you met someone who is going through some problems in life (or maybe you are that person).  What is the first thing that we usually say to them, “I’ll pray for you.”  Well, this is like that.   One of my favorite prayers is the Litany of the Saints....

Making Sacrifices as One

Things in my home is starting to get back to normal.  I have been quiet for the past two weeks because my household has been sick.  It seems like one after another, we’re coming down with something (a cold) and we’re out of commission.  Homeschool had to pause for a week, but I thank God everyday that we’re a head and not behind. I am also very thankful that the children are feeling well enough to continue Monday. My household coming down with a cold that required multiple doctor visits (and ended with one...

Year End Reflection 2014

First of all, I hope everyone had a Very Merry Christmas!  Not only do I hope you got everything you needed, but I hope you were able to celebrate the true meaning of the Christmas season with your family and loved ones. As 2014 comes in to a close, I have plenty of time to think and reflect about where I am headed, what my plans were for this year, and how well did I meet them. In the beginning of this year, I had some very bold plans, not just for online, but for offline as well.  I hoped to have more exposure, and do far more...

Born In Poverty

Born In Poverty

Next week, we celebrate Christmas.  We are retold the story of how the Holy family had to go back to Bethlehem because of a census.  We learn that the city was full, and Mary was in labor.  We relive the birth of Christ in a stable and how even in not the best conditions (to our high standards), our King and Savior was born into this world. Will we be filled with joy because of Christmas?  Are we going to celebrate the Birth of Christ with praise and thanksgiving, or are we going to feel disappointed...

Season of Peace

Season of Peace

Have you noticed how often we use the word peace?  We are at peace.  They keep the peace.  I’m looking for peace and quiet. We throw around the word so much these days, that we forget what it means to be at peace.  In the worldly sense, peace means tranquility.  But can we be in tranquility all the time?  Can we wake up in peace, not have any disturbances, and end our day in peace?  Nope.  Honestly, it just doesn’t happen. The toil of daily life calls us.  Frustrates us.  ...

Would The Real Saint Nicholas Please Stand Up

I look back on some of my older posts, and I laugh to myself about myself about how I was going to defend or refute the infamous Santa Clause. I laugh because I always seek truth. I didn’t want to lie to my children in the name of a holiday tradition, nor did I want to take the fun out of the season by saying he’s not real. A few years ago, I came to the beautiful conclusion on how to handle it, and this year we are just taking it further.   The Catholic Bishop   Not many people are aware of this but Saint Nicholas...

The Deadly Seven – Greed

I think Biggie Smalls said it best, ” Mo Money, mo’ problems.”  This week we are going to take a closer look at Greed.  Welcome to my series of the Deadly Seven.  If you are new here, you can click here to get a list of all the ones we’ve covered so far. *** Gimme, gimme, gimme.  The words that parents do not like to hear.  In fact, I’m sure that some of us even said that to ourselves when we see something that we feel that we must have.     We can define Greed as the...
