Book Review: Voyage to Alpha Centauri

Believe it or not, before reading Voyage to Alpha Centauri, I had never actually read another thing by Michael D. O’Brien.  I know, I know. Where had I been hiding to not have been exposed to the veritable rock star of modern Catholic fiction over the past [almost] 20 years?  I mean, when I first heard […]

Finding God in the Dish Soap, Part Two

A while back I posted about the importance of recognizing one’s state in life and attempting to sanctify the mundane moments and tasks.  (You can read that here if you are so inclined.)  Recently, I had an a-ha moment regarding my own spirituality while I was, oddly enough, staring at a sink full of dirty […]

When All You Can Say Is “Jesus”

Last week, Susanna Spencer wrote about being a cradle Catholic and how it truly effects every aspect of one’s life.  Her piece, “When Catholicism Is in Your Bones,” spoke to me, in part because I am one of those cradle Catholics who knows that you can spot a Catholic church just by looking for the Bingo […]
