When evil appears to win, turn to the Eucharist

August 20, 2015

This week I want to share with you two important themes that have come to me in prayer: the need for prayer and reparation for the atrocity of abortion, and the way that Christ sustains and builds our faith through the Eucharist.

Isn’t it better to know what’s going on in the world than be close off? This is an extremely important question. Not only is… Read more »

We’ve Been Here Before: Marriage and the Room of Tears

July 02, 2015

Just last week, I had the privilege of spending four hours in the Sistine Chapel with my Word on Fire team. Toward the end of our filming, the director of the Vatican Museums, who had accompanied us throughout the process, asked whether I wanted to see the “Room of Tears.” This is the little antechamber,… Read more »
