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

Terrorists

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

Statue of St. Paul in Front Courtyard, St. Paul Outside the Walls, Rome

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

CatacombInterior

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

New

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!)

While the fall of Rome was tragic in the sufferings that were caused, should not the history books perhaps remember it more as an almost apocylptic cleansing of an immoral and decaying world?

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?

Detail: Agnolo Gaddi: Madonna Enthroned with Saints and Angels. c. 1380/90. Wood, 80 5/8 x 96 5/8". Andrew W. Mellon Collection.

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 […]

Introducing “The Age of Illumination: A Reclaiming the Sacred Mini-Series”

Manuscript1

At the risk of sounding a little overly passionate, there is something that I want to debunk right here and now, because it is a preposterous, nasty, ugly little lie that has been perpetuated for far too long. So without further ado (drum roll please), here is my grand, earth-shattering, lie-debunking announcement of the 21st […]

Discovering the Age of Illumination: The Récupération

BookofHours

I have a confession to make. It is one of those jaw-dropping, shock-inducing, “I cannot believe she just said that!” types of admissions. Something that no one in our modern world would ever admit to. But here it is, in all its gory truth: I am a fan of the Middle Ages. Gasp. I know, […]

Abuse & The Sacred: What Is Sacred?

Heart

Some posts back, I asked the timeless question, “what is sacred?“ I had some really great responses, and it was good to know that it is a question of interest to others, as well as to myself. To be honest, however, I wrote it because I was tired of dealing with abusive people. Abusive people? […]

Life: From A Single Person’s View, Part II

KeepCalm

In my last post, I wrote about life from a single person’s view. Well, at least it was from a single person’s view who is actually passionate about being single. The reason that I wrote that post was twofold, and I believe both reasons to be equally, and very, important for our world today. Double […]
