I offer some of my thoughts on the present insanity at The Everyman: In fact, we are wedded to the idea that any given problem is solvable, and that we – those fortunate enough to be born in the age of science and reason – do not have to put up with what our poor … Continue reading Everyman Corona Thoughts
Everyman Piece on Notre Dame
After watching Notre Dame Cathedral burn, I wrote up some of my thoughts, which are running today at The Everyman. We are the heirs of Christendom. We have inherited treasures beyond belief; Notre Dame Cathedral is only one jewel among hundreds of such cathedrals and churches, living prayers in stone and glass, not to mention the … Continue reading Everyman Piece on Notre Dame

I bring it up because I think that parable … Continue reading On Being the Prodigal
Where We Go From Here: The Reconquest of America.
If I have learned anything during this election cycle, it’s not to make any predictions involving Donald Trump. So I’m going to say that I don’t know what he plans to do, or what kind of President he’s going to make. Only thing I can say for sure is that we’re probably in for an … Continue reading Where We Go From Here: The Reconquest of America.
