Gambling with Love

“Father, I’m ready to throw in the towel,” Brad stated. “How long am I suppose to take this?” -- A story that shows the power of  prayer to renew marriage.

Shuffling through the mail, Brad Kremmer pulled out several envelopes from credit card companies and ripped them open.  His muscles tightened as he skimmed over the new balances.  
She’s lied again,” Brad realized.  His wife, Jennifer, had promised to stop gambling at the casino and going on out-of-control buying sprees.  She seemed to understand the seriousness of their mounting debts when she tearfully promised to quit.  Instead, she had gone through at least another two thousand dollars.

A Prayer for the Internet

The Internet has it all: the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Like everything in life, it is a battleground of good and evil, best navigated by staying near to God.

Defend Priests Against Bullies

‘Yeah, well your priests, like little boys.”
There it is. The slap in the face meant to silence a Catholic and degrade the priesthood.  You would think it had been enough already, but the priest/sex scandal card still gets played, often in comments under articles or on Facebook posts. It has shown up a few times in comments under my articles.
Too often, Catholics cringe and duck out. It was the goal all along of the one who spit out the vitriolic attack; to silence his opponent and chalk up one for the anti-Catholic team.  Should you end it and walk away?  As the saying goes, “Don’t fight with fools, they’ll beat you with experience every time.” But wait, priests act in the place of Jesus Christ. Will you not defend Christ?
