Life Update 3: Evangelization with Miraculous Medals

What is Marian Evangelization? If I were on a flight, perhaps 20 years ago (this was shortly after my conversion, you see) I might share the Gospel with a person next to me on the airplane as if I were to answer to God for that soul in my particular judgment.  In other words, I would share the Gospel with the hopes by the time they landed they were willing to accept Jesus as Savior.  I might even throw heaven and hell in there... I don't regret that zeal.  (In fact, I wish I had more of it now.)  Now, I don't even regret the approach, for the Holy Spirit [...]

When Politics Becomes A Religion

The above is an 8 foot by 8 foot tin face outside a suburban liquor store (where I now regret having purchased anything.) It was while driving away that I realized a semi-new world religion is forming: The image and likeness of God as a human face is covered when a mask is on it.  Although we men and women most reflect God first and spiritually in having an intellect and free-will, the face is the physical part of the human person that most clearly reflects the fact that every person was made in the image and likeness of God.  (Gen 1:26) The Rainbow Flag is a mockery the fact [...]
