Evangelicals and Catholics Together Again

In an America increasingly hostile to both evangelicals and Catholics, we need to not only reinforce the ecumenical qualities of the pro-life movement, but we need to expand out into other areas.

Proclaim Inclusivity to All the Nations

Diversity and inclusion have completely replaced the Gospel as the raison d’être of many protestant denominations, and that ideology threatens to infect Catholicism as well.

Don’t Wait for the Teachers

As we approach another school year, I’d argue we as parents need to do much more to educate our children. To put it bluntly, we shouldn’t wait for others, no matter how professional, to intellectually form our kids.
