If God Is for Israel, Who Can Be Against Her?
By Bill Dunn
There is no doubt about it, Christians and Jews have some major theological differences, centered primarily around the true identity of Jesus Christ. Christians believe that Jesus is the divine Son of God, the Messiah, while Jews believe the promised Messiah is still yet to come.

By Rolando delos Reyes II
We hear it in the news – cases of child sexual abuse in the Philippines – rape, incest, pornography, prostitution. Added to these is the number of teenage pregnancies that happens in a year. Our government, through the Department of Education proposes a solution: mandatory sex education.
Go to Heaven. Go directly to Heaven. Do not pass GO. Do not ...
By Victor S E Moubarak
One day a priest approached the lectern on Sunday and asked: "Raise your hands if you are going to Heaven!"
New Year Resolute-Tions
By Jared Michael
Now that the dust of the New Year approaching and coming has settled, it's time to nestle back up to our work schedules, battling the tough task of writing a seven, without needing to scratch out a six before hand. It’s life as usual, but let's not forgot those goals we’re all reminded to set sometime in early December, the “r” word of course.
The Seven Heavenly Virtues
By John Laney
Most Catholics know about the seven deadly sins: pride, greed, lust, anger, gluttony, envy, and sloth. Fewer are familiar with the seven, heavenly virtues that serve as counterparts to the seven deadly sins. It’s important to know about these virtues, or good habits, so you can answer the call to personal holiness and become a saint.
A Religion of Peace?
By Rob Agnelli
In his dialogue with Euthyphro, Socrates poses a crucial question that has application even today. He asks Euthyphro “is what is holy, holy because the gods approve it or do they approve it because it is holy?” Put in other words, he is asking whether something is good because God commands it or whether God commands it because it is good?
Hoping in the storms of life
By Madeline Araujo
As I watched my own world tumble and crash, I had two choices to make; to go down with it or rise above and run to Jesus. I chose to run to Jesus. Built on my foundation of faith, this running was to the anchor of hope I have in Him. Hope is the second virtue of our faith. It is what anchors the soul when the hurricane hits.
By Samuel Matthews
What’s the big deal? This is often the reaction of Catholics and non-Catholics alike to the Church’s teaching on contraception. Unfortunately, thanks to the work of people like Margaret Sanger, we live in a culture of death that does not give the use of contraception so much as a second thought.
Care for Creation Series: Retiring in God's Abundance
By Jeff Sokol
When is the best time to plant a tree? I get this question often, and I always have the same answer, “20 years ago”.
Am I being lied to?
By Erika Wehrly
Have you ever wondered if you believe a lie? There are lots of things we simply do not know for certain. Can we trust what the majority says is right and true? I lived as a victim of a lie for many years. I became so convinced the lie was true that it became a subconscious fact. The lie I believed was that I thought it was wrong to be happy.
Care of Creation: A Catholic's Guide to God's Natural Abundance
By Jeff Sokol
Imagine for a moment, the Garden of Eden. Walk through the garden, and take in the splendor of God’s design. Discover the birds and lizards eating insects from leaves so they don’t spoil. See how He put the legume trees and beans fixing nitrogen into the soil, feeding the hundreds of different fruit varieties, with many fruits always in season.
Loving Through a Loss
By David R. Myers
A few days before Christmas, I lost my beloved friend of 15 ½ years. Eamon was a black and white cat I took off the street. We lived together in four (4) different places. When I took him in, I was living in a 547-sq-ft apartment. I subsequently moved to a second apartment with double that space, and then a third with a little more space,
Euthanasia: When It's Cruel to Be Kind
By Melanie Jean Juneau
Death is as common as birth, obviously, but old age homes and palliative care facilities efficiently remove the dying from the public eye. Consequently, most modern folks are ignorant about the process of death and dying and would rather ignore the entire subject. No wonder euthanasia is gaining acceptance.
What if St. Paul encountered Christ, but then didn't follow Him?
By Trish Irvine
Too often, I assume that the saints would, naturally, follow God's will in their lives. I mistakenly believe that it was easy for them--of course they responded correctly, they are saints.
Faith alone is faith in oneself
By De Maria
On my virtual walk through the internet, I met a fellow with whom I had a discussion about salvation. He is one of those who always asks, "Are you saved?" And then extolls the value of the false doctrine of faith alone. At one point, he said this to me. Faith in works to obtain salvation is not faith in Christ.
