Welcome Message

Welcome to my blog about Catholic life and family values.
This blog will center around the beauty of Catholicism and how to raise families, evangelize our faith, and fight the ongoing spritual battles that challenge us daily.

You are invited to share your wisdom on these pages with all the readers. Together we will address important life and faith issues and how to enhance our Catholic identity.

Key areas that you will find me addressing regularly will be about important Catholic doctrine and beliefs and how they help us raise strong Catholic Christian families. My hope is that you will learn, enjoy, and be challenged by my posts. You may be informed, amused, or even annoyed, but I hope it will in some way improve your Catholic faith.

Welcome Home to Family...

My daughter Mindy is home for spring break from Franciscan University in Steubenville. We are currently getting the house ready for a big family gathering this Sunday evening. As I help Barb clean (a miracle in and of itself), I hear my two daughters and their boyfriends laughing and having a grand old time playing with the Wii (R) and enjoying each others company.

That reminded me of days when I was at my wife Barb's house when we were teenagers. The shouts and clamor of a full house is a truly joyful sound for a family. I remember it then and it's ironic how I'm now the parent in the scene. Now that Mindy is gone nine months out of the year, it reminds me also of how much I miss having her around.

No matter what stage in parenthood you are, feel blessed and happy with what God has given you. It passes by very fast. You are a steward of your child's life. Make sure you are giving it your all...

Vivat Jesus,
