As simple as this topic should be, unfortunately today it can not be so. This specific topic has been on my mind since I was a student in college and one I have wished to write about since the beginning of this very blog. I chose to write now partially because of the provocation of … Continue reading Hookup Culture and the Life of the Church in Todays Youth
I am a 21 year old man who is single and without children. I cannot address this topic from the biased front to which I am inherently placed in a position to protect those who are dependent on me. I am able to speak on behalf of the vulnerable. I have had my fair share … Continue reading Shall we protect those who cannot speak for themselves?
I was stuck in bed, staring at the ceiling like most of us do when we can’t sleep. I had words running through my head without a clue as to what they meant. Two of my buddies were lying on the floor below me fast asleep so I couldn’t ask them what they thought so … Continue reading Food for thought, looking for feedback
I do believe that this topic is awfully subjective. The value of home is different for everybody. Some like to live in a van and see the country in it’s entirety and richness of beauty while others find security in being home. I find myself thinking of this often. How great it would be to … Continue reading Why is the sense of home so important to us?
I do not intend for the title of this post to mislead you. I am not telling you to go outside and hug your large oak tree for dear life.

A conversation with a good friend of mine provoked my interest in writing on the topic of fear. I fell down a rabbit hole of conversations I’ve had in the past of why it seems that I don’t fear anything. The words I used to explain what goes on in this wild head of mine … Continue reading Why it’s difficult to let go
I have always wondered why so many people believe that a conversation is more inclined to lean in your favor when you are visibly angry. It could be argued that in format of discussion, not debate, can emotion play into your favor. Emotions such as pity in the event of a desperate plea or zeal … Continue reading It’s a New Age Mister
Before I continue with the topic of my previous post, I feel the need to express into words the experience I had just an hour ago. My morning was dreadful and not for any particular reason. I woke up at 5am for no apparent reason only to find three gut wrenching text messages. With the … Continue reading Riding shotgun with my Guardian Angel
As a witness to the magnificence of European wonders, I have a unique testament to the state of the world in relation to Holy Mother Church. I have witnessed the Church’s greatest wonders, from the grotto of Sainte Mary Magdalene to the supposed universally devoted Route de Compostela ( Santiago, Spain). I have struggled, fought, … Continue reading The beginning of everything that hasn’t been done
