Be a Pell

Be a Pell

The signature of our time is the betrayal of the small by the powerful. Bureau thugs with mammoth government backing surveil Catholic families; protestors fester in prison for years without a trial; bishops are stripped from their flock without canonical...
Choosing Between New and Old

Choosing Between New and Old

If I could only pick one or the other, I’d have to say I’m a Novus Ordo Catholic. It’s the Mass I’ve attended for most of my 65 years. My early childhood preceded the Novus Ordo, so I had nine years in the Latin Mass, but it was mostly prior to the age of reason. My...
Shifted on the Shift

Shifted on the Shift

When I came out of the theatre after watching The Shift, I was only thinking one word: refund. Not so much the ticket price, but the two hours.  By the next morning, I’d completely changed my mind. Talk about a shift. This is a movie that sticks with you. I must say,...
Twilight in Tyler

Twilight in Tyler

When the Cathedral bells swung five minutes before Mass last weekend, they seemed to know. The Ave sung with the Rosary was so mournful, you’d think someone had died. A light went out in Tyler on Saturday. The seat of the bishop is empty; the coat of arms will be...
Pilgrimage on the Katy

Pilgrimage on the Katy

Finding a treasure in emptiness – A pilgrimage is a journey of spiritual significance, often to a shrine or religious place. But the destination is not what makes it a pilgrimage. I could schedule a trip to Lourdes to enjoy some French cuisine and pick up a load...
Sentimentalists Go to Rome

Sentimentalists Go to Rome

OPINION –  When I was growing up, there was a woman in our parish who became a staple in our family folklore: Joan Langley (name changed). She became an icon of all things showy and sentimental. We would say, “Don’t be such a Joan Langley,” or call something...
Our Particularly American Civil War

Our Particularly American Civil War

OPINION –  Why is the Civil War the most interesting period in American history? Why has a book like Gone With The Wind been translated into dozens of languages around the world (including Korean, where it comes already loaded onto new tablets)? Why are Civil...
Sound of Freedom: See the Children

Sound of Freedom: See the Children

OPINION –  No one wants to see child trafficking. We have a duty to acknowledge it, but one imagines that looking too closely might deliver a blow to our psyches from which we couldn’t recover.  Go see Sound of Freedom anyway. It’s a grand adventure, spanning...
Never Go to the Second Location

Never Go to the Second Location

OPINION –  A maxim of self-defense, especially for women, is to never allow an attacker to take you to a second location. It’s better to go down fighting on the street, in the parking lot, at the door, than to be transported to a second location where the...
Nefarious Is…

Nefarious Is…

OPINION –  When the preview for Nefarious was run last month before a Christian movie, I wondered why anyone would advertise a horror movie to an obviously religious crowd who would never pay to see such a thing. Inefficient marketing, I thought. The movie...
