Just a catholic girl passing through... just wanted to say I LOVE your blog!!! You're doing such an amazing job and a real credit to the Catholic youth of today! Keep up the amazing work! Much love and God bless!
Hey, you're blog is LEGIT! Keep up the good work! So my question is: Say I'm a good single 22-year old Catholic guy (or at least I hope I am) and my problem is I know TOO MANY good girls who I am just friends with. I feel like my attractions constantly shift. I pray to God and the Blessed Mother to make the right one stand out, but I feel so divided. I feel like I am just sort of wasting my time, not making the move to ask a girl out. WWYD?
Have you got yourself a spiritual director?
That’s probably a good place to start. Also: have you ever properly discerned the priesthood? It might be worthwhile to spend a year in seminary or even a week at a retreat in a monastery/seminary to see if priesthood or brotherhood could be your calling.
If you feel divided, perhaps the answer is something you’re least expecting. That’s how God talks to me sometimes.
I just wanted to say something to anon who asked about the problems of the already born- there are so so SO many Catholic charities that try to help people in need. There are entire orders of religious (nuns and brothers) who do nothing but work tirelessly to improve the lives of the poor and suffering. We don't ever forget about the babies after they're born! But making sure they get into this world alive is half the battle, especially when some don't consider an unborn baby's life valuable.
You inspire me to be stronger in my faith and a better Catholic. Keep up the amazing work, God Bless!
thanks!!! and if you ever have submissions feel free to send em to us! GB!
I think you're brave to have a Catholic blog to begin with, and leaving the anon option open shows that even more so. I don't have a Tumblr, otherwise I'd go off anon. I love your blog, I'll keep you in my prayers! - a Catholic girl
thanks you for the support! we usually dont get that much hate mail (no thats not an invite for trolls) but if we do, its just another chance to evangelize. God Bless!
Just a random Catholic girl here, to tell you that I think this blog is perfectly cute and lighthearted without mocking the faith or being too self deprecating. Keep doing what you're doing, fellas. I'll be praying for you and all the anons who don't seem to get the message you're sending.
Hi there! Discerning diocesan priesthood over here. Nice blog, following you!
this is too beautiful NOT to reblog!!!!
this is a huge GPOY if the Houston brotherhood ever served at Conference!!! lolz
So your against abortion. What's fine. But let me ask you something. All pro lifers seem to only care about the fetus and seem to forget or not care about the baby once it's born. What do you do to help the millions of starving, suffering, and orphan children all over the world? What do you do for the mother who barely has enough money to feed herself and got pregnant because of rape? What do you do for the already born?
As a Catholic Pro Lifer i would suggest you do some research on the many charities that the Catholic Church has around the world. im not gonna post them here for two reasons.
1. i have to go to work soon.
2. Im going to assume that you are a person with good intentions and is actually seeking answers and not just attacking. So i will leave you to look around and find the truth. Because that is what you are seeking. The Church is the biggest provider of charity world wide. =]

I'm the anon that asked for evidence, and this is for the other anon: you have no idea what you're talking about... "scientism" is not a religion and therefore there is no "belief structure" to account for. If you mean that no evidence is provided, then I have no idea where you've been living for the past thousands of years. Maybe under a rock.
Tumblr ate an anon’s post, but I want to say that if you want to talk about empiricism and a bunch of other things,
Please watch this video now. Father Barron is such a bro.
PS: This was filmed at my diocese, and I wasn’t there. Le sigh.
Anon, this is for you:
The problem I find with "scientism", not necessarily atheism, is that it doesn't account for its own belief structure. I've also been reading some of your answers to questions and I think you are devoting too much focus into what can be empirically proven (falling into a trap). I have two videos for you to youtube: The first is humorous but proves a good point: "Why Atheists are Wrong and Ignorant. The second is: Father Barron on the Youtube Heresies (Part 1) God Bless!
i read a while back that atheism is bad for people because its human nature to believe in something, and atheism is the lack of believe in anything. Even hippies who believe in trees believe in something.
and i think i am devoting too much time on that. its that the first anon kept asking for prove without the “faith” aspect so i just wanted to provide a few examples. Of course we gotta keep in mind the “blessed are those who believe without seeing” and also let me make sure to state that Eucharistic Miracles have , mostly of not all, been a consequence of a lack of believe by the people.
Side note: it appears to be the typical rough fabric of the tilma, but the fabric is smooth and silky to the touch. I'd like to get the thing in a lab before we say it displays any abnormal characteristics, seems about as credible as any of the other supposedly impossible feats of art that have turned up over the centuries.
actually i just saw that right now too!
ive never seent he tilma in person. My mom got robed at knife point when my fam lived in Mexico City so she never let me visit that city. But i plan to one day. And i know there is hierarchic and such, but i deff wished more religious articles would be allowed to be tested on. With respect of course, but as a believer, i also want to know that im not venerating a “fake”
