A Toast to J.R.R. Tolkien!

January 3, 2020
A very happy 128th birthday to the great myth-maker and devout Catholic (and one of my favorite writers), J.R.R. Tolkien! Tolkien’s writings are richly textured and immersive. He was more than an author. He was a “sub-creator” of an incredibly complex world, replete with exotic and unforgettable creatures, invented languages, histories, and characters. His legends […]

UPDATE: The Catholic Gentleman Book

April 24, 2019
For some time now, I have been talking about the release of my book, The Catholic Gentleman: Living Authentic Manhood Today. I originally was informed by my publisher that the release would take place at the end of April, around Easter. Amazon also reflected this release date, and many of you who pre-ordered the book […]

What Jayber Crow Can Teach Us About the Priesthood and Celibacy

Book Review: The Beer Option

December 19, 2018
I have to be honest, there’s something so empty to me in big, grand Catholic evangelical efforts. You know the type – “transforming your family with 3 easy things;” “an evening workshop that will change your marriage forever.”  The more dynamic it claims to be, and the grander the promise of impacting the entire society, the […]

You Can’t Buy Holiness

July 10, 2018
I don’t have a book problem, I tell my wife, I have a bookshelf problem. Our home is overflowing with books on every conceivable topic, with nearly every bookshelf double stacked. Yet, despite this superabundance of tomes, my wishlist remains filled with hundreds more books I would like to buy in the future. No matter […]

Book Giveaway: An Immovable Feast

April 3, 2018
For the past several years, I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know author, poet, and musician, Tyler Blanski. Tyler was an Anglican seminarian when I met him, on the road to becoming an Anglican priest. There was only one difficulty: He had recently had a crisis of faith and was increasingly drawn to Rome.
