There is nothing quite like the love that a mother has for her child. She pours herself out for her child day in and day out, from infancy, to childhood, through adolescence, and into adulthood. Our mother’s love for us, Mary’s love for us, began at the Annunciation – it […]

Greatness; that’s our goal as men, right?
Whether we want to be a scientist or a lawyer or a football player, we want to be great. That’s a good thing because we are called to greatness by God.

What I found up in that attic shocked me. There were empty boxes from our Christmas presents. This may not seem all that weird – except these were boxes from the Christmas presents we received from Santa Claus… and Santa didn’t bring them in boxes.

Why does the Catholic Church… in the middle of Advent, while preparing for Christmas… throw in yet another holy day?
Why pause to honor Mary while we’re prepping to party with Jesus? What is the Immaculate Conception… and why is it a big deal?
