What is a witness to the truth? “A witness to the truth is a man who in poverty witnesses to the truth—in poverty, in lowliness, in abasement, and so is unappreciated, hated, abhorred, and then derided, insulted, mocked—his daily bread perhaps he did not always have, so poor was he, but the daily bread ofContinue reading “Witness of Truth”
“What impends. They alone understand that while the family is the primary social unit, the community comes next. And there is no sound and righteous and enduring community where all its members are not substantially of one mind in matters of the spirit– that is to say, of religion.” Peter Maurin
It’s kind of hilarious and incredibly sad to think that if we lost our phone or the ability to access the internet that we would lose our so called “community.” In addition, to the fragile tie that binds us to our “friends”, I ask you to think about why neither Facebook nor any other socialContinue reading “The foolish man built his house on the sand”

“What is the good of words if they aren’t important enough to quarrel over? Why do we choose one word more than another if there isn’t any difference between them?

More than ever, we must either learn or remember that to recover our health requires us not just think differently, but to be completely different and to live completely differentContinue reading “Fed A Lie”
A philosophy of work is essential if we would be whole men, holy men, healthy men, joyous men. A certain amount of goods is necessary for a man to lead a good life, and we have to make that kind of society where it is easier for men to be good.” ― Dorothy Day, TheContinue reading “Dorothy Day, witness of truth”
