    What happened? How could so many people vote for Trump? If you want to fight hatred, the first step is to stop embracing it so much.

    Jesus’ message was one focused on hope. He repeatedly talked about how we are made for something beyond this world. That his kingdom was different from that of Rome. And his followers took him seriously. Many of them, martyrs from the 1st century through the 21st, cast aside their fear even in the most horrifying of situations and have died recognizing the truth that no matter how bad life gets here on earth, they will be with their Lord in the next. This realization helped them keep all of the events of this world in their proper perspective, just as we should today.

    Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will win today’s election. More people will be upset about it than are happy about it. Let’s get back to loving them all, looking towards heaven with a grin on our faces, and recognizing that no matter who is our president, Christ is still our King.

    When mass shootings happen, we are quick to use them to further our own political values. But what can we do to really help people in need after tragedies like this weekend’s in Orlando?

    The Stations of the Cross can feel so far removed from our 21st century world. This Good Friday, I invite you to experience Christ’s passion through new eyes, the eyes of our homeless brothers and sisters living in our own neighborhoods.

    The death of a great man who was a part of my life for just a brief moment reminded me that I often fail to grasp one of the greatest realities that Christianity shows us.

    The refugee crisis in the Middle East presents a difficult predicament, how do we care for those fleeing persecution while keeping ourselves safe? Jesus’ answer is pretty straightforward.

    After all of the talk from Pope Francis and Catholic bloggers about marriage and the family in recent month, I decided it was time to try it out for myself.
