Screen Shot 2021-01-29 at 3.12.18 PMClick HERE to register for free or just to learn more. My talk will be on “How to Keep Your Kids Catholic.”

I may be the oldest of the speakers with the largest family. We now have 18 great Catholic grandkids. AND, they know and defend the Faith without hesitation.

You too can raise such kids and grandkids. It takes a plan, and I will share with you the plan my wife and I developed 44 years ago when we got married.

How can we raise rebels? Isn’t “rebel” a bad thing? No, not if it is raising rebels against the Culture of Death and Relativism. Independent kids that are counter-cultural and ready to defend the teachings and morality of the Catholic Church.

Want to hear four of my teenage grandkids discuss the Catholic Truth? Check out the video below.

My Resolve as our World Spins out of Control

by Steve Ray on January 23, 2021

After commenting a bit on our dismal situation in the world, a friend wrote to me this morning saying, “Please keep doing what have been doing for many years to come!”

Screen Shot 2021-01-23 at 9.21.52 AMI responded,

When we got married 44 years ago I told my good wife we had already lost our country, it was just a matter of time how fast we would slide down the hill. I had been a keen observer of philosophy, popular culture, the media and movies, education and the “intellectual” trends.

The trend was already set and I watched the “non-thinkables” quickly become “thinkable” and then accepted, then imposed, then expected, and then we were all required to praise and celebrate the things that even in my younger years were once “unthinkable”.

Abortion was just one of many evils that sprouted like an ugly weed due to this philosophical shift.

external-content.duckduckgoPut a frog in a pan of cold water and turn on the burner. Because the heat increases slowly over time, the frog does not realize the change. He does not respond but slowly is boiled to death. So it is with our country. The changes are just gradual enough that people adapt to the increasing change and in the end….

Every time we smile with a small victory it is like climbing up a sand dune when I was a boy. It seemed like for every step I climbed up I slid back down two steps. 

downloadEven when Trump was elected I viewed it as a small victory, but said to Janet, “It is only a parenthesis — it will only slow down the decline for a while, it won’t stop it.”

It’s not about who’s in or not an office, it’s about the shifting trend of the philosophy and our willingness to except evil and socialism and the denigration of human life and freedom.

Without a spectacular intervention of God (which I pray for) we have already lost our country and the freedoms we have taken for granted. I hope I am proved to be wrong, but…

As for our family, we will fight the good fight and stand our ground. We will educate, castigate, and celebrate. We will live in the life of the Lord and his victory through the cross and resurrection. The truth is the Truth and cannot be forgotten, neglected or silenced.

So, we all do what we must even though I expect it is a losing battle on this battlefield. But knowing that in the end we win the war, Janet and I intend to stay faithful with our eyes set on the last day when “all who are in the tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who have done good to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil to the resurrection of judgment. (Jn 5:28-29).What Grandmas do

C812935F-C875-4206-972B-203FF96112E5-768x576And if we can save the lives of some babies, form the conscience of our own family and a few others, keep the flame burning, bring some souls to heaven with us, die in friendship with God, and even die as martyrs with the Creed on our lips, we will have done our part.

Alas, we are called to be faithful, not successful, as Mother Teresa said.

Disappointed with Bishop Barron’s Article on Catholic Voting

October 30, 2020

I just read Bishop Barron’s article/blog concerning voting, and frankly, I was very disappointed. Usually, I try to give the benefit of the doubt and avoid criticizing brothers in the Lord, especially bishops, but this was too much. He contradicts or at least minimalizes what the United States Council of Catholic Bishops said concerning the […]

October 22, 2020

Remember that GK Chesterton said, “The Catholic Church is the […]

Bishops Saluting Hitler?

October 21, 2020

Yes, many bishops in the last century supported, saluted and remained silent in the face of the inhumanity perpetrated by Adolf Hitler. And even now, there are bishops who support a political party who slaughters innocent babies and euthanasia. (List of cardinals, bishops, priests who are warning Catholics about pro-abortion Biden-Harris ticket) Sad to say […]

You Laity are Very Important and Should be Involved Reminding Priests and Bishops

October 3, 2020

We Catholics often think we should sit back and let the bishops and priests do everything. We should look to them to save our Church. But Archbishop Fulton Sheen has a word of exhortation for us: “Who is going to save our Church? Do not look to the priests. Do not look to the bishops. […]
