Who Am I?


I don’t know what it is about tough subjects, but sometimes I can just be really drawn to them. My latest sketch is one such topic; Mary Magdalene, perhaps the most famous sinner to walk the face of this earth. “Who Am I?” is the title of the sketch. (Scroll down to see the entire […]

A Spanish Awakening


Art. It is one of those topics, besides the Catholic Church, that seems to perplex me almost endlessly. The questions that it can provoke are perhaps even limitless in their myriads of unique shades and original intensities. Questions such as: What is good art? What is bad art? Why is it good, or why is […]

Without A Place To Belong: Finding a Home in the Church Today


What I have to say is probably going to come as a shock to some, especially those who have followed my site since its earliest days. You know, back when I was the Catholic Nomad, rambling about the country, trying to do some good. It might seem as a shock, or even a radical surprise, […]

A Prayer from the People of the Cross for ISIS: Could You Dare to Adopt a Terrorist TODAY?

Could you dare to love ISIS? It is both a startling and thought-provoking question that is beautifully (and painfully) presented in a new video by the YouTube channel¬†Mighty, entitled, Who Would Dare to Love ISIS? (A Letter from the People of the Cross). If you have not seen the video yet, or heard of it […]

The Calm After the Storm: The End to the Silent Crisis of the Early Christian Faith

I have to admit – I am absolutely fascinated with the concept of knowing what the history books never tell. Combined with a bit of an obsession for reclaiming the sacred, within hearts as well as in the overarching landscape of our world, I suppose it is almost inevitable that I am frequently striving to […]

The Path to Happiness: Hidden Messages In Early Christian Art

History, when told through the eyes of its heroes, has the power to change our lives. You might ask how a mini-series on the past can help make your life better today, but that is because so few know how to tell history as it ought to be told, and that is a shame. Much […]

Why We Need A “New” Foundation For Our Christian Past: Lessons From Our Words & Presentations

Ok, so I bet that some of you might be wondering why on earth I have spent so much time yammering about new names for the “Middle Ages,” some of the shoddy ways that it has been represented in the past, and the “fall” of Rome. Blah, blah, blah…where’s the good stuff, right? Yeah, I […]

How the Fall of Rome Was a Blessing For the West (Wherein I Question History, Yet Again!)

Here’s the thing about the “Middle Ages” – it has nothing to do with the middle of anything. At least, not in the way that we have generally been taught. Unless you consider it as a rather pointless time between a predominantly pagan world that had never seen the light of Christ, and the “rebirth” […]

3 Secrets of Misrepresenting the Christian Past Exposed: Have You Been Fooled?

I have to admit, I am excited about this new mini-series on the Age of Illumination. So excited, in fact, that I might have to force myself to behave like a proper young lady and remind my brain that I hold three university degrees, worked for a business in NYC, and know how to present […]
