A Missing Virtue

Friday, August 31st, 2012
Last week I told you that there are two virtues that we as baptized Catholics have that Jesus neither had nor needed.  The first is the virtue of faith.  The second is the virtue of hope.  Our Lord did not need the virtue of faith because He had the beatific vision.  He did not need the virtue of hope because he was already in possession of the heavenly kingdom. The Modern Catholic Dictionary defines “hope” as follows:
The confident desire of obtaining a future good that is difficult to attain.  It is therefore a desire, which implies seeking and pursuing; some future good that is not yet possessed but wanted, unlike… Read More

Engaging In Conflict

A client (I’ll call him Joe) recently agreed to do some home improvement work for a couple.  Joe called me after he was almost finished with the job and told me that the couple was accusing him of not doing the work in accordance with their agreement.  Although he had an initial proposal that was signed by the couple, they had changed the plans a few times and added several new items to… Read More

Capturing Jesus on YouTube

Friday, August 24th, 2012
Have you ever wondered why Jesus chose to come to Earth during the time of Herod rather than now?  Wouldn’t it have been better if his sermons were recorded so all of us could see and hear Him on television and the Internet?  Wouldn’t it be a lot easier to convince others to become believers if we could show them online videos of our Lord’s miracles?  And wouldn’t we benefit from watching before-and-after videos of individuals who were mentally and physically healed by Jesus? Why did our Lord decide to come live among us at a time when there were no video recorders, cameras, cell phones, movie theaters, televisions, copiers, or Internet? … Read More

I recently settled an auto accident injury case for a university professor.  For purposes of discussion, I’m going to call him John (not his real name).  John told me that he originally came to the United States in the early 1980s to attend college.  After graduating, he accepted a job offer from a large U.S. corporation.  He eventually became a naturalized citizen of the United States. John… Read More

A Mother and Her Son

Thursday, August 16th, 2012
In 451 bishops from throughout the Mediterranean traveled to Constantinople for the Council of Chalcedon.  At the council Marcian, the emperor of Constantinople, asked the patriarch of Jerusalem if he would provide the emperor with some relics of Mary, the Mother of God.  The emperor wanted to enshrine the relics in Constantinople.  The patriarch had to explain to the emperor that no such relics existed. There were no relics because after Mary died, her body was placed in a tomb and, as was the case with Jesus, the tomb was later found to be empty.  The apostles who were present when Mary died concluded that her body had been taken up (assumed)… Read More
