Am I my brother’s keeper? 

By David M. Carollo – When God asked Cain where his brother Abel was, he responded: “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Knowing that he had murdered him, motivated by jealousy, God allowed him to contemplate his deed. Cain knew that his action was wrong, but more profoundly, he knew that this act had ramifications far […]

The Rosary is a ‘Weapon’ of Love

by David M. Carollo – I am dismayed at the assertion in the article written in ‘The Atlantic’ by Daniel Panneton, that devout Catholics use the rosary as a weapon of hate. There is no greater act of love that exists beyond the Mass than the recitation of the Rosary. The 20 decades follow the […]

The Annihilation of the Soul

by David M. Carollo – Perhaps the most ominous prediction made by Our Lady at Fatima in 1917 was a warning that nations could be annihilated. Pictures of a nuclear holocaust dance through our heads when we think of this possibility. War in any age has disrupted society, but war in the nuclear age has […]

The Need for Courage Founded on Charity and Righteousness

by David M. Carollo – In the movies, we often see the heroes laugh in the face of danger by rushing into an impossible situation to save the lives of others or to slay the bad guys.

Post-Pandemic, Not Post-Catholic

by David M. Carollo – In 2020 and 2021, in response to the directives of government officials, businesses and churches were closed to stop the spread of the Covid virus. Many felt that this was a stronger response than necessary, and that alternate solutions could have been found to assure the health of the populace. […]

United with Mary for Peace Among the Nations

by David M. Carollo The United States/Canada border was long considered the longest non-border in the world. Traveling from Upstate New York to Michigan, for example, one finds the most direct route to be through southern Ontario.

Overthrowing Evil in Our World Will Take All of Our Efforts

by David M. Carollo – In the last days it is said that there will be wars and rumors of war. Are we at that point in history? Only God knows the answer, but I hope not; perhaps for a reason that does not seem apparent. “Go and make disciples of all nations,” He told […]

The Imperfect Saints Model Our Lenten Journey to Holiness

by David M. Carollo I have always related to St. Peter. How many times do we hear of him as an angry man who overcomes his faults and moves closer to perfection? A trip to the Holy Land is not complete without a visit to the Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu. It is built […]

The Road to Eternity is a Road to Perfection

by David M. Carollo – As 2022 began, I was hit with many difficulties, both personally and business related. “Could 2022 be a year more difficult than 2020 or 2021,” I thought? Oh, poor me. Stress and pressure are part of life and I typically manage this well but this time I felt a bit […]

Patriotism means adopting an attitude of selflessness

by David M. Carollo – As we approach the Independence Day holiday, the thoughts of patriotism come to mind.

Without this, it is impossible to understand the motivation of those who […]
