It’s time for another lesson from Luther’s Small Catechism. Today we consider the Commandment to honor our parents. Lutherans number this as the Fourth Commandment. Here is the Commandment, from Exodus Chapter 20: 12 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land that the Lord your God is giving […]

In three previous posts I wrote about the Ten Commandments. The first Commandments apply to the relationship we all have with G-d. The second table of the Commandments applies to the relationships we have with each other. This is why you see the Ten Commandments illustrated with three Commandments on one tablet and seven Commandments […]

The outcome of the November election is irrelevant and was already decided long before any of the presidential candidates declared for the primary races. It was decided before the current president took office. The American people long ago decided to turn away from God and enter into evil on a scope and scale that insured […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. The Night of Fire

 

Blaise Pascal, mathematician, scientist, inventor, and philosopher, a man who from the age of 16 had been making historic contributions to mathematics and the physical sciences, who, despite a sickly constitution and a capacity for intense abstraction nonetheless oversaw the material construction of his experiments and inventions with great zest, was barely past 30 when saw something unexpected one raw November night. He saw fire. The vision of it so branded him that he sewed the record he made of it, his Memorial, into his coat, carrying it with him the rest of his life:

Memorial, Pascal

The withdrawal of Ted Cruz from the contest for the GOP nomination for president must have come as a shock to those who had been assured by Glen Beck, by various Cruz family members, and by the senator himself that his candidacy was ordained by no less an entity than the Supreme Being. Here’s Cruz’s father […]

Father Barron produced the PBS miniseries “Catholic” a few years back and was recently named an auxiliary Bishop for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. In this clip he discusses the mystery of God and how Christians owe it to our culture to confront the false notions of God advanced by atheists.   More

A little bloodletting is good for a body. I understand the spleen is strengthened by the body losing a little blood. The immune system is also healthier with (the right amount) of blood loss. Peter and Rob: Thanks for all the good that you have brought into my life. More

Brothers and Sisters, I have had a recent revelation. While listening to thunder roll across the sky, I was shocked by this bolt out of the blue, as it were, of what that sound truly was. Brothers and Sisters, it is obvious to me that this sound has nothing to do with lightning. It is […]

Does Hell exist? This question arose in another thread this week, one which the O.P.’s author had really hoped would focus more closely on what is beautifully and uniquely Catholic when it comes to sex and birth control. She didn’t want her thread to get highjacked, especially by people determined to explore the unlovely matter of eternal damnation. {http://ricochet.com/the-beautiful-and-unique-teachings-of-the-catholic-church/#comments) More

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Moral Facts, Opinions, and Suppositions

 

478px-Vitrail_de_synagogue-Musée_alsacien_de_StrasbourgDiscussing a New York Times op-ed by a college professor about how young people are taught that all value statements are matters of mere opinion, Dennis Prager blamed the problem on a lack of religious faith. He went on to say that the kids have the logic, if not the conclusion: without religion, all moral statements have no truth claim:

If God doesn’t say “Do not murder,” murder isn’t wrong. Period, end of issue… Morality [becomes] just an opinion for “I like” or “I don’t like” if ultimately, there is no moral God in the universe that makes morality real. Without religion and God, there is no moral truth…
