Our lives must be all about love or else we are nothing. Without love we are empty shells, a noisy, useless cymbal clashing in the dark.

Q: I’ve been friends with this guy for a long time. We get along great, and everyone says we’d be cute together, but there’s one problem. He’s discerning a vocation to the priesthood. How can I control my feelings for someone who’s not available like this? Classic Catholic girl problem, […]
I’m kind of a quitter, guys… I think, in my childhood, I tried almost everything once, and then quit almost everything. There was soccer, in 2nd and 3rd grade. I was the goalie because I hate running… Turns out, even the goalie has to run at practice. That was about […]
THIS is where PBMC2 (yes, I went there) really shines. There is absolutely nothing I noticed to complain about, morally speaking. There are no nude scenes, there is no foul language, and there are no inappropriate scenarios. Nada.
