Micah Murphy

A cradle Catholic from Omaha, Nebraska, Micah’s work in Catholic New Media began when he was still a teenager. After spending 9 years in Catholic school, he entered public high school to find himself challenged in his faith by his non-Catholic classmates. Seeking the truth, Micah scoured his parents’ Catechism, read Patrick Madrid and Catholic Answers, and learned the faith by debating it through online apologetics. At the same time, he began to appreciate the patrimony of the faith as he studied Latin.

Excited to serve the Lord, Micah became a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Omaha. While studying at Conception Seminary College, he grew in his love of Catholic tradition through his exposure to monastic life and study of Biblical Greek. He also grew in his experience of Catholic New Media with the online apostolate Phatmass. Discerning a call to marriage, he left for a very fruitful year getting acquainted as a student with the work of FOCUS at the University of Nebraska, which inspired him to make evangelization his life’s work. After transferring to Franciscan University of Steubenville, Micah graduated in 2007 with a BA in Theology & Catechetics (with a Latin minor).

Micah married his wife, Jennie, in 2007, and they have four children. They live in Shreveport, Louisiana, where Micah teaches Scripture at Loyola College Prep.

What is the Catholic Response to the Illegal Immigrant Children Crisis?

Something tragic is happening in this country of ours. Tens of thousands of children are pouring over the border and our president has done nothing at all to stop it. In fact, while it happened, he fundraised. And fundraised. And fundraised some more. I’m pretty sure he’s not planning on using the revenue to help […]

America’s Other Border Crisis

While millions of Americans share their concerns about our southern border and the rapid influx of illegal immigrants, Catholics have been sharing their views more than most I’ve seen, with a sharply divided approach between our theological need to care for the less fortunate – in this case the orphan and the foreigner – and […]

Catholic Families, NFP, and the Upcoming Synod

Patheos is hosting a symposium on the upcoming Synod on the Family and blogger Calah Alexander has some frank, honest points about the Church’s teaching on procreative generosity in practice. It’s worth reading. Calah observes: Even so, what rankles the most is never the lack of material help. I don’t expect the Church to pick […]

Shreveport Times Ignores Homegrown Vocations

There’s a new article on vocations circulating in the Catholic blogosphere. I saw it first at Deacon Greg Kandra’s blog, then Elizabeth Scalia posted it on Facebook. It’s a great story. Any increase in vocations is good news that needs to be shared, especially after years decades of hearing about the priest shortage.  For many […]

10 Tips for Not Breeching Birth & Baby Etiquette

My wife delivered our 4th child last week. Like all pro-life Catholics who’ve been blessed by God with more children than bedrooms, we get a little nervous and perhaps even self-conscious, despite the fact that we know, in the end, we’re doing the right thing. Keeping our anxieties in mind, here are a few points […]

An Open Letter to Harvard’s Satanic Cohort

To whom it may concern at the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club, The Catholic blogosphere exploded today with news of a Black Mass – I shudder even to dignify the notion with capital letters, but alas, it is a proper noun – under your auspices. You claimed at first to have a consecrated Host for […]

BREAKING: Smoking Gun Evidence Jesus Was Married

Patmos – Scrolls recently discovered at an archaeological site on the Island of Patmos reveal smoking gun evidence that Jesus, considered by many Christians to be the Messiah – was in fact married. The find comes at a time when other recently discovered texts have been called forgeries. Catholic theologians quickly dismiss such claims in […]
