    • What Does it Mean the Church is “Apostolic”? February 24, 2017
      One of the lines I love most about the first Eucharistic Prayer is the prayer for the Catholic Church and all bishops who ‘preach the Catholic faith that comes to us from the Apostles.’ In the creed we profess “One Holy Catholic and Apostolic” Church, and in my discussions with non-Catholic Christians from Reformation communities, […]

    • Critiquing the Trump Cult February 18, 2017
      During the election cycle I was pretty outspoken in my dislike of both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Since Trump’s election I’ve commented in (I hope) a balanced way here and here. One of the most disturbing things about Trump’s presidency is not Trump himself, but the seeming inability we have to treat the situation […]
