By Mark Danis, Integrated Catholic Life - We should each make one firm decision right now, even before we finish reading this reflection. Let us all agree that we are going to make this the single best Advent of our entire lives... Go ahead, just say it to yourself. “I am absolutely committed to making this the best Advent of my life.”
By Spencer Lindquist, The Federalist - While documenting my former high school’s attempt to indoctrinate me with critical race theory six years ago, I remarked that now, several years later, “the situation has undoubtedly worsened.” Worsened it has. Now, Campbell Union High School District has promoted more than 100 “equity resources” to students and staff, including a document that taught students how to put a curse on those who say “all lives matter.”
By Rev. Peter M.J. Stravinskas, The Catholic Thing - Advent is a season concerned with developing particular attitudes more than prescribing certain actions. One difficulty of modern man is not that he does wrong things (although he does) as much as that he thinks wrong thoughts. Correct thinking leads to correct behavior. In theological language: Orthodoxy brings about orthopraxis.
By Philip Kosloski, Aleteia - If you want to win someone over with your words, go to the source of all words, Jesus Christ... Sometimes it may seem that our words do nothing. We try to talk with someone on Facebook, or in real life, and the person we are conversing with does not appear to be listening... It can be a frustrating experience, one where we can easily lose our temper and start hurling insults.
