The Ego-Project God: How people often shape God into a reflection of their own ego

This gallery contains 1 photo.

A common issue in today’s society is the tendency to project one’s wishes and desires onto an imagined God, which I term “The Ego-Project God.” Everyone who engages in this project is entirely at home with the “god-of-his-own-making.” It seems the comfortable place to be–but it won’t last. At the root of this problem is moral relativism Continue reading

The Election Is Over, But Moral Principles Remain A Priority

The human person, as a moral agent, helps to positively determine the character of the nation in which he lives by participating responsibly and in a morally coherent way in the election process. At stake in every election is whether a nation will be characterized by the culture of death, becoming hostile to life and human dignity and authentic goodness, or by the culture of life in support of human dignity, fostering authentic goodness and true human flourishing.

Let us pray for our nation and for our new commander in chief, President Donald Trump, that during his period of leadership he will work to restore some of what has been lost in America due to the blatant and direct hostility shown by the previous administration, associated politicians, and the Clinton network toward human life, unborn children in the womb, the right to religious freedom, and the Catholic Church herself.

All Saints: Why are the saints important in our everyday lives?

This gallery contains 1 photo.

The saints are models of human excellence, perfected by the life of Christ and the communication of his Spirit. They demonstrate by their lives how to really live and how to really die. They consistently point to the horizon of love which leads to the fulfillment of all human desire: eternal communion with the Holy Trinity. By our devotion to our heavenly brothers and sisters who have gone before us in Christ, and by their prayers of intercession, fraternal charity is exercised which contributes to the unity of the Church and aids us on our pilgrim journey.

St. Ignatius of Antioch Teaches Us the Goal of Human Life is God

This gallery contains 1 photo.

The life and teaching of St. Ignatius clearly points to the sublime and lofty goal of human nature: eternal communion with God. Man is made for something—Someone—infinitely greater and higher than creatures or created things. The thirsty human heart can only be satisfied by Christ who is himself the life and light of humanity (Jn. 1:4). Further, since we find our origin in God, our end and perfect happiness is found in God alone. As man attains his destiny in God, whose perfection of goodness, love and beauty is the desire of his heart, the fulness of human life is thus also attained.

St. Teresa teaches us above all that the goal of the human person is union with Divine Beauty: our loving and wondrous God and Father. It is only in and through and with God that we can attain perfect happiness, human fulfillment and total completion. In fact, without God, as she so often emphasizes, we have nothing and are nothing. However, he who has God possesses everything. St. Teresa proclaims: God alone suffices! Continue reading

The Moral Dimension of The Catholic Vote

Over the years, I’ve often wrote of the moral weight of voting in America within the context of the plight of the unborn under the gavel of abortion and its intrinsic evil. There is no greater voting issue in America today than the abortion issue because a nation that fails to value its children and thus intentionally kills them is a nation fallen prey to the anti-life forces of evil.
