11 Questions Every Twentysomething Should Ask

“Our twenties can feel like being smothered in questions, but if we don’t ask the right questions, we will forever remain stuck.” So check ’em out and ask away!


Disciples pray …

5 Aug

Disciples pray with passion. Disciples worship. Disciples love the Church and serve her with energy and joy. Disciples give lavishly. Disciples hunger to learn more about their faith. Disciples fill every formation class in a parish or diocese. Disciples manifest charisms and discern vocations. They clamor to discern God’s call because they long to live it. Disciples evangelize because they have really good news to share. Disciples share their faith with their children. Disciples care about the poor and about issues of justice. Disciples take risks for the Kingdom of God.

“God created us…

“God created us without us; but he did not will to save us without us.”

St. Augustine

For many people, both believers and non-believers, take the film to be an atheistic tract, with Truman as a kind of Promethean Freethinker, shaking his fist at a Controller God and breaking away into Secular Maturity.

This is, however, to profoundly misread the film. For what is attacked is not theism, but happy-face secular utopianism. And the attack draws heavily on Catholic images to land its devastating blows.

Check out the rest in this post by Mark Shea on the Truman Show.


“Don’t you long…

25 Jul

“Don’t you long to shout to those youths who are bustling around you: Fools! Leave those worldly things that shackle the heart – and very often degrade it – leave all that and come with us in search of Love!”

-St. Josemaria Escriva


Purpose of Life

24 Jul

“An educated man will seek truth. The purpose of education is to acquaint us with truth. One basic truth that we have to learn is the truth of our own existence. We would not have a gadget in our house five minutes without knowing the meaning of that gadget and yet some people will live ten-twenty-fifty-sixty years without knowing why they are here or where they are going. What is the use of living unless we know the purpose of life?”

—Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen
