  • Can I Live Without The Internet For A Month? I'm About To Find Out. | The Catholic Gentleman — Since I was sixteen, nearly two decades ago, I have gone online almost every day. Starting August 2, for one month, I’m going off. No email, no social media, no keyboards, no podcasts. No audio books, no video memes, no texts. Not a single smiley-face emoticon. Nothing. Smart phone powered down and stuck deep in a drawer. How is that going to work?
  • ESPN's 30 for 30 - Broke — Ya broke
  • Philippians 4:11 RSVCE - Not that I complain of want; for I have - Bible Gateway — Not that I complain of want; for I have learned, in whatever state I am, to be content.
  • Sports Guy: Ewing Theory 101 — I have a three-word explanation for you: "The Ewing Theory." It's bigger than the "SI Jinx." It makes the "Curse of the Bambino" look like child's play. It's creepier than the "Curse of the 'Spinal Tap' Drummers" and the "Curse on the Careers of Everyone Who Leaves 'NYPD Blue' " combined. Quite simply, it's the most life-altering sports phenomenon of this lifetime. Here's everything you need to know about the Ewing Theory, in the form of a Q & A: What's the Ewing Theory? Where did it come from?
  • Lordship salvation controversy - Wikipedia — The "lordship salvation" controversy (also "Lordship Controversy") is a theological dispute regarding key soteriological questions within Evangelical Christianity, involving some non-denominational and Evangelical churches in North America at least since the 1980s.[1] The dispute spawned several books, pamphlets, and conferences. According to one website advocating Lordship Salvation, "the doctrine of Lordship salvation teaches that submitting to Christ as Lord goes hand-in-hand with trusting in Christ as Savior. Lordship salvation is the opposite of what is sometimes called easy-believism or the teaching that salvation comes through an acknowledgement of a certain set of facts."[2]Another website critical of it, defines it similarly, however: "As defined by its own advocates, Lordship Salvation could more properly be called "Commitment Salvation," "Surrender Salvation," or "Submission Salvation" since in actuality the debate is not over the Lordship of Christ, but the response of a person to the gospel and the conditions which must be met for salvation."

  • Consistency Will Make You Holy - Fr. Mike Schmitz — Have you ever wanted to become really good at something, but then quickly became discouraged as soon as you realized how much time and effort you would have to invest in it in order to master it? Well, in this video, Fr. Mike talks about one important thing that makes these aspirations more attainable. Consistency is not just a rote disciplinary measure forced on us by teachers and coaches. In the end, Fr. Mike points out, it’s about faithfulness toward whatever it is you are aiming to achieve—including holiness.
  • Getting out of the Sacristy: A look at our pastoral priorities – Catholic World Report — We once could trust that many people would come to our institutions—schools, seminaries, and parishes—to be evangelized, but we absolutely cannot assume that today. -Bishop Robert Barron
  • Liturgy and depression. . . | CPYU — This got me thinking. I wonder if we hurt ourselves and our children deeply when we remove the more formal liturgy and replace it with nothing but spontaneity? When the storms of life come, will our kids be able to weather those storms by reciting and reminding themselves of the “this I know,” if they’ve never had the opportunity to regularly repeat the “this I know” with a regularity that cements those truths and makes them so much a part of themselves that they can’t help but be recalled?
