    WILD HORSES

    5 Oct 2020 | Blog | PASS

    One of the most majestic of animals is the horse that runs wild and free. It breathes in nobility through its wide nostrils. It paints freedom wherever it moves and hooves the ground with thunderclaps. It pounds out fortitude and strength with every beat of its heart. It is brother to the wind and oozes grace at full gallop. It loves its freedom and finds refuge in its large family. It may follow a great stallion who strides and struts, but its nature is one of wanderlust. Traveler, stargazer, survivor; the horse is a striking beauty of strength and speed, but governed by a docile [...]

If there is a bigger mystery than this one, I am unaware of it. There is none that could be any deeper. In some sense it was really a matter of curiosity. The question intrigued me from my earliest forays into rational thought. Though my radar was always up for any discussion on this topic, I never felt I encountered a convincing answer to this problem. Why does a loving God permit so much suffering and destruction? This is [...]

    Introduction

    2 Nov 2019 | Blog | Frank

    It’s important to take stock of your life – all the time. It’s easier if you know who you are and what you want out of life. From an early age, I found the heart of Jesus and the pageantry of his Church very compelling. I liked the way they worked together with reverence and humility. I liked the way they made me feel. These images drew out of me an abiding sense of the need for moral clarity. They spoke to me in words and ideas that could be searched, probed and tested endlessly. They have provided a well of hope and strength in me that has not run dry. Moral clarity [...]
