For my husband and I, finding the right church has always been a struggle. I’m not proud to say that we’re Goldilocks Catholics, who often find this church too hard and another too soft before settling on one that’s just right.

Aleteia — Catholic Spirituality, Lifestyle, World News, and Culture

There is a common, and I’ll admit somewhat understandable, interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy that sees the great work as a celebration of the virtues of the Shire, that little town where the hobbits dwell in quiet domesticity. Neat, tidy hobbit holes, filled with comfortable furniture, delicate tea settings, and cozy fireplaces are […]

I know a secret about your husband, the notes read. I had scant time to contemplate them. Anyone here to mark my reaction would notice a prolonged absence.

Jayce Ran's Sweet Insanity

Exposed brick line the pealing walls of the dingy apartment.  Three men and a girl spread a pair of floor layouts atop a ratty table. “I am telling you, it’s the perfect time to strike.  There is already an anti-police demonstration going on.  It will be a turkey shoot.”“I don’t like it.” a younger man […]

This is one of my old stories I told here as I looked back at the longest 31 days in the year; that was 2016. You would be amazed to see what I found out. I stood up and stretched my arms, holding my fingers and pressed them together. They made a cracking sound to allow the circulation […]
