A few weeks ago I was able to attend a great seminar on porn addiction through the Archdiocese of Los Angeles (ADLA). The seminar discussed the causes, the use, and the treatment of pornography addiction and how pastorally it should be addressed. The reality of pornography is that addictions to it are...

“They are restless until they rest in thee” – St. Augustine. The book Peace of Soul was written by the inspirational Venerable Fulton Sheen in 1949.  It’s easy to think that a lot has changed in society and the field of psychology since 1949, but his words...

Here we are on the threshold of Lent, with decisions to make. Perhaps we’ve been asking ourselves every year what it is we’ll be giving up this time around. But I dare say it’s time to stop asking that question. Or at least to ask the question in the right way. It’s not merely...

Figure out your vocation and what you will do for the REST OF YOUR LIFE 2. Get an education accordingly. 3. Be able to support...

Despite only being here for a few months, one of the ways I have felt quite “blessed” is the sense of community with which working at CATUC and living here on the archdiocese grounds has filled me with.  My experience here in Cameroon so far might actually be better described as a sense...

The other day I met a man who claimed to be Jesus. Every time I walked by this homeless man, I felt a tug at my heart.
