In the secular world we frequently hear of drug and alcohol addiction affecting almost every segment of society. Nobody seems to be immune from this scourge. However, we don’t often hear about how addiction sometimes affects our Clergy and Religious. These men and women of the Church face pressures and stress that many of us […]
Not long ago a priest shared some guidance with my wife and me that has been the cause of a great deal of conversation and reflection in our home. In response to learning that we pray every day about our oldest son’s future and that he be healed of his autism, he encouraged us to […]
Are we only called to share our faith with the faithful? Evangelize the evangelized? No, we are supposed to share the joy of our faith with everyone and sometimes that means Catholics who have fallen away from the practice of their faith. Sometimes it also means talking about our faith with Catholics who are angry […]
When I give talks around the country or sometimes in correspondence with readers of my books or blog posts on Integrated Catholic Life, I am often asked what I mean when I encourage others to “be joyful” and share the “light of Christ” with others.

I have had the good fortune during my career to meet countless men and women in the business world. They come from all parts of the country and cover most professions. Prominent among these good people are those who are unemployed, underemployed or unhappy with their jobs. Each of these represents a type of crisis […]
Feeling let down by politicians and public figures who say they are Catholic, but their words and actions are often contrary to the teachings of the Church? Do we seek good examples for ourselves, our children or our grandchildren to emulate because we hope they will demonstrate in word and deed what it means to […]
On Monday of this week I had to work for part of the day to meet a few clients, tie up loose ends for the year and do some preparation for 2014. It was challenging to be pulled away from my family over the holidays, especially with my easily bored sons out of school during […]
