Locking myself away

July 6, 2009

I am under pressure to finish the CSS Bible Study course on 1 and 2 Corinthians. I told Gail I’d have it done this summer. I am in the middle of chapter 1 and will be locking myself away a good part of the summer to get it done. Janet is the jailer with the [...]

Sign of the Cross

April 13, 2009

This study was originally a part of a letter written to an “ecumenically-sensitive” Catholic who was part of a group that abandoned certain Catholic distinctives (such as crossing themselves, displaying the crucifix, venerating the Blessed Virgin, etc.) in an effort to “not offend the Protestant brethren”. The end result was an emasculated Catholicism, a group [...]

Almost done with Genesis

May 30, 2008

I have been in semi-seclusion for the last month and it has paid off. I have finished 26 out of 28 Lessons on Genesis and I am half dne with the 27th. Genesis is more fascinating than I realized. It is one thing to read it and quite another to dig deep and see how [...]

Loaves & Fish: Was it a Miracle?

April 6, 2008

I was furious when the priest said Jesus didn't do a miracle at the multiplication of the loaves — he said Jesus taught everyone to care and share. Instead of standing up and saying "Excuse me Father!"  — I decided to write — and I did. Hopefully my article will help put that 60's faddish nonsense to [...]

How Long was Jesus on the Cross — Do the Gospels Conflict?

March 19, 2008

Do the Gospels Conflict?How Long was Jesus on the Cross? The question intrigued me sufficiently enough that I spent the best part of a day working on it. There seems to be a contradiction in the Gospels, mentioning different times for the crucifixion. Maybe someone forgot to check their watch! Mark says Jesus was crucified at [...]

Loaves & Fishes: the Miracle that Never Happened?

February 20, 2008

Jesus didn't really do a miracle, right? He just taught everyone to care and share, right? You've heard that homily, right? The people had all brought picnic baskets which they kept hidden up under their robes. Jesus convinced them all to pull out their picnic baskets to share with everyone else. The REAL miracle was [...]

The Great Luther Quote Debate

February 14, 2008

Several months ago I was accused of using a quote from Luther out of context and for shock value. It was stated that I, and many other modern Catholic apologists who used this particular Luther quote, did not do our homework. There was a assumption that Catholics can't and don't do serious research on these matters. [...]

Critics of My Books

December 14, 2007

I was made aware of two critical comments on my book Upon this Rock. I generally tend to defend my works if I have time. I have briefly addressed each for anyone interested. The comments were made by Michael Whelton in his book Popes and Patriarchs. He was an Anglican turned Catholic, who was then disallusioned by [...]

My Response: Defending the Assumption & Queenship of Mary

August 21, 2007

The Assumption of Mary always ruffles the feathers of anti-Catholics. I understand why. I used to be in their camp — I joined them in lockstep chanting the same slogans and mantras against "Catholic Tradition" and "man-made dogmas." But now I turn my guns on my old impoverished theology and anti-Catholicism and its lame attack on [...]
