Screen capture of Vladimir Putin kissing the relics of St. Nicholas

Is this Why the West Hates Putin? (and keeps telling us to hate him?)

Do you ever see those “meanwhile in Russia” memes on the internet or social media?  They make me laugh because they depict some aspect of Russian life that is so different than ours. They are East versus West settings. For instance, this picture: It makes me think of the old “In Soviet Russia…  bear drives you!!!” jokes. So,…

Runaway Memes: Pumpkin Spiced Sacrilege on the Feast of St. Gennaro

Numbstruck over Fatima: If you are blaming the Pope, you’re doing it wrong

Yesterday was First Saturday and the Feast of the Transfiguration. I tend to have a post on First Saturday, and I missed it yesterday, but it gave me a chance to consider something. Things are awful today — in the Church and without. Just look at politics and the shenanigans of the candidates. Worse, look at the inane things…

Man-Made Climate Change has Nothing to do with Nature Videos

This week there was a nature show projected on the face of St. Peter’s in the Vatican. I agree with many of the criticisms of the event, most importantly because St. Peter’s square is recognized worldwide as the place from which the Pope and the Church speak on the things of God. Sure, nature is creation and…
