On The View last Tuesday, Stephen Colbert made a few headlines for making fun of Whoppi and Joy Behar for walking off the set after a heated argument on air with Bill O’Reilly the previous Thursday. But it’s what came after his mockery that actually deserves attention. Changing the subject to his faith and family, Barbara Walters asked the comedian … Read More

Be Not Afraid of the Cross

ChelseaFaith, Hope, Suffering2 Comments

I’m preparing to give a talk to a youth group in Ellisville MO later this evening. This quote from Pope Benedict sums up the message I hope to get across: Dear friends, the Cross often frightens us because it seems to be a denial of life. In fact, the opposite is true!
