PROBLEM: Suicides, depression, and drug-overdose deaths tragically exceeded all previous levels in 2022.1 85% of Catholic kids openly abandon their faith by age 22!2 The average age a child makes the decision to reject faith in God is…age 13!3 The Root Cause? We’ve fallen for the lie that true happiness comes from anything other than knowing, loving and serving God in this life and being happy with Him forever in Heaven! We’ve lost sight of the family as the fertile sanctuary where intimacy with God and one another either takes root and grows strong… or withers and dies. PROMISING SOLUTI ..read more

5 Things That Will Devastate Your Family If You Miss Them!

If 85% of our kids were being drugged, kidnapped and murdered, parents would rise up to battle the Goliath that dared consume their offspring. Yet, spiritually, this slaughter is upon us! Today, 85% of Catholic children abandon their faith by age 22! The Church is bleeding out. Our Catholic Faith is the path to Heaven. It is the way to divine intimacy, freedom, and abundant life. If our children reject this life of grace, they become… prey… easily seduced by worldly pleasures, enslaved by passions, and then suffocated by sin. He who does not experience spiritual joy necessarily becomes add ..read more

How can we turn the tide when it is rising into a tsunami relentlessly pulverizing the Christian foundations of our culture? It’s time to mount up! The odds appear stacked against us.

3 Ways I Failed as a Catholic Father

I didn’t sign up to screw up my kids. Fatherhood was going to be GREAT – adventures, hugs, and giving better than I got. 27 years, 10 kids, 6 months of couple’s counseling and 1 year of Catholic psychotherapy later, it’s the break of dawn before my eldest daughter’s college graduation and I’m a mess. I’m jogging and crying, hoping no one sees me. The weight of my failures as a father, failures I can only now see clearly, is crushing me. Sure, clarity has its advantages – I can change things going forward – but the devil is in the flashbacks. Moments where I misfired and wounded. I can’t go ba ..read more

PROBLEM Disorder in society is the result of disorder in the family. Unless parents prioritize intimacy with God and family, the home and society self-destruct. SOLUTION God gave us the 2 keys to survive and thrive: 1) Love Him with all our heart and 2) diligently teach our kids this love at home. -Deu 6 God promises joy, peace, and security, if we seek first His Kingdom. He warns that those who don’t will ‘surely perish.’ The Family Conquest program is a free, easy and impactful way to grow in intimacy with God and each other, at home.

Our Christmas Mass Was Empty

“Unknown Caller” appeared on my phone. I knew it was either spam or Fr. McCarthy. Father wants to make sure people call the parish office, so he keeps his cell number private. Since it was the morning of Christmas Eve, I took a chance and answered. Father’s business-like voice launched into a request: “Would you and your sons be ushers for tonight’s 5:30pm Mass?” “Sure, how many do you need?” He replied that he had 3 already and needed 3 more, adding that the ushers got a pew reserved for their family. Now that was great news! With 9 of our kids home – plus a new son-in-law – we needed seatin ..read more

***Serious and Disturbing Warning to Parents
Strong Catholic Dad
by Michael O'Rourke
1y ago
As a Catholic father of 10 and grandfather of 3, I have been deeply disturbed by our current crisis. My concern has grown further after reading the December 17, 2021 letter of Dr. Robert Moynihan. I have been following for years his weekly reporting: The Moynihan Letters. In this letter, he reprinted the serious and disturbing statement of Dr. Robert Malone. I included it below. Dr Malone is an internationally recognized physician/scientist. He is the inventor of the very technology about which he speaks. As parents, his statement needs our careful consideration. &nbs ..read more
