Catholic Critique

Why Catholic Critique?

To confess the Faith to any who wish to hear or see.

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved” (Rom. 10:9)…” “If you continue in my word, then you are my disciples…” (Jn. 8:31)

This website is a small, sometimes crude attempt to do a little of that.

But then there is something else.

Young people must reflect.

Christians pray. Sometimes we pray with great feeling and emotion, whether in church, at Mass, or at home in our beds. In such moments we are grateful beyond words.

At other times we pray in a kind of pain, into what sometimes feels like the void. And we know that the Void hears us. He assures us that we can be certain of that. He is why anyone even wonders about this, and strives for Him, even in the darkness. He asks us for faith even when He seems to sleep amidst our difficult storms.

What a grace we have been given: to know the Cross as we get older.

 “…when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” (Jn. 21:18)

We have much to do as we prepare to take leave, whether we have many or few years left. We can offer up our sufferings (Col. 1:24), for our own sins and for the needs of others.

One thing we cannot deliberately do is to distract ourselves constantly to the neglect of our souls. We all have an appointment we cannot avoid.


Catholic Critique is politically Independent and will advocate for traditionally liberal or conservative causes and candidates depending on the objective truth and morals of the issues involved. SH
