This week, I made the biggest announcement yet on Breaking in the Habit: Fr. Tito and I will spend summer 2022 traveling the US to visit every MLB park and preach at churches. It’s going to be amazing. More details in this week’s video and on our new page. If you’d like to invite us to speak at your parish or organization, let us know by filling out this form.
Life is like a box of Chocolates…
… is a really weird famous saying. You always know what you’re going to get with chocolates. It’s on the box. But it’s said by a wholesome simpleton, so we let it slide. Such is Forrest Gump in a nutshell. Wholesome. Endearing. Memorable. And filled with things that just aren’t right. Fr. Tito and I like much of the movie, but there are definitely some problems with it.
What would you ask God?
This is the question posed by the Christian movie An Interview with God. Admittedly, it’s not a great movie by cinematic standards (I did say it was a Christian movie…) but it does pose some interesting questions worth discussing.
What Vatican II Actually Did
Vatican II is blamed for a lot. Last year I made a video called Stop Blaming Vatican II in which I defended the council against the ways it’s misinterpreted and used as a scapegoat for all of the Church’s ills. In this video, I try to get to the heart of the council, arguing that its aim was simple: to commission the laity.
Worth a Repeat
Every once in a while, it’s great to go back and rewatch an old video. This week, I want to recommend one of my favorite videos, Christianity. Pure and Simple. Too often we get caught up in things that don’t matter, and I want to challenge us to focus on what does.
Hope everyone has a great week! Peace and good,
