I too took my inheritance from my Father in an untimely fashion. It was 1980 and my Father, who was serving in the Army, had just been stationed at Fort Sam Houston, in San Antonio. I was six years old, and I began to recognize the very peculiar, and confusing behavior he had towards my mother.
Who is the first person in the Bible to be called the “son of God”? If you answered Jesus, you would be incorrect.

I want to thank the men of the “Catholic Men’s Retreat” of Wyoming for inviting me to speak to them about one my favorite subjects… typology! In this series of 6 lectures we attempted to examine the question… why did Jesus have to suffer and die just to redeem us from our sin. If Jesus is God, then why not just will our redemption?

If Jesus is God then why the cross? The death? The suffering and agony? And why was he so careful to do it all in the garden? In September, 2011, we journey back in time to the first man in a garden […]
At the age of 7, I was dreaming big… playing army most every day, pretending to be John Wayne or Sgt. York. It was 1981 and Radiers of the Lost Ark was out in the theaters, although Star Wars was by far my favorite… I always played the role of Hahn Solo, and had every […]
