I was recently listening to Dr. Peterson's podcast, and he has multiple times now challenged as to why anyone would dare claim to believe in God. While I do think he makes some very solid points, there's a couple subtleties that his response is lacking. I haven't yet heard anyone give a great response, so I decided it was time to surface the podcast boat and send out an episode.

I do think that Peterson actually raises a very accurate and compelling points that all of us who claim to believe in God, and who claim to be Catholic, should take seriously. We are all, in a way, challenged to step up our game. To put our money where our mouth is - so to speak. I mean this both literally and figuratively.

I believe there is a path to understand both the value and truth of an ideal (or set of ideals), while differentiating our various levels of efforts and striving towards them. That's what this episode is about.

We've all heard "Love the sinner, hate the sin." Turns out that this is actually really hard. We connect the sinner and the sin, not only slightly, but pretty strongly together. The last time I got punched, it took a long time for me to separate out the sin from the sinner.

In this episode I discuss 5 steps to helping us to really love those neighbors who are super annoying. Sometimes those neighbors live next door, while sometimes we're married to them. Whoever it is that annoys you, you have a Christian duty to love them - directly from our Lord Himself!

I'm really excited, I think this is an organization that everyone needs to know about. Young Catholic Professionals (YCP) is a Catholic apostolate that builds the faith in the younger generations. When I consider the statistics concerning the faithful of that generation, this organization has a crucial mission!

Jennifer is the head of the organization, and a delightful person as well! I really enjoyed my discussion with her, and learned a lot. We talk about the challenges this generation is facing, as well as what YCP is doing to help. There are several ways to get involved!

Mini episode this time, just want to throw out a thought I had today. We all like to think that, especially as Christians, we can stand on our laurels.

Truth is we really can't, we all must cling to the blood and sacrifice of Christ for our worth and merit. When so doing, we find the deeper ability to actually be our brother's keeper.

I've encountered several actual tragedies recently, and have been asked the question "What am I supposed to do? How do I keep my faith?" These are really hard questions to answer

I've been thinking a lot, and I propose 7 thing to consider when facing a tragedy. None of these make it "OK" or can take away the truly terrible feeling of facing down a huge amount of suffering. Suffering sucks, no matter how holy one is.

The opportunity with suffering, however, is different. It gives us an option to try to really become something new. It gives us an opportunity to participate with Christ.

In this episode, I try to come up with some really practical things to think about in the face of a tragedy. Whatever level of suffering you may be facing, you will hopefully find some help here.
