Check out this clip of one of his speeches where he helps us to understand the introduction of Playboy into our society and the beauty of our bodies.

How Much is Jesus Worth to You?

Posted by sevensorrows on 12:42 PM in ,
You are a Catholic Nerd when you get excited by things such as this...jesustile

This may be a time of recession, but if you are feeling generous or frivolous, I could use $150,000. Yes, this is the starting bid on eBay for this 18"x18" tile that appears to depict Christ's crucifixion. If you do actually visit the eBay page it says "The more you look at it, the more you see." Is it my mind playing tricks on me, or is God showing me something?

Here is what I saw: (you can play along at home)

  • Jesus looking down

  • Holy Spirit (dove)

  • Angel/ghost

  • 2 more possible faces (on on Jesus' chest and one to the right of him)

Ok, yes I am a nerd and I actually love this type of stuff. Yes, I loved Mary in the grill cheese too.

But seriously, what if this was real? What if this was purposely made by God? Who was it made for, and why? What would a miracle be worth?

Hoax or not, coincidence or not, if it brings us to think of Jesus and his suffering and sacrifice for us, isn't it worth it?


May - The Month of Mary - Rosary Videos

Posted by sevensorrows on 12:36 PM in , ,
It is May, the month of Our Lady and what would please her more than to draw closer to her son by praying the rosary. It is such a beautiful prayer. Simple, yet profound. Life changing. Miracle working. My life would not be the same without it. Here are 2 short videos to help motivate you.

This second video has a slow start, and a few strange translations, but please don't let this discourage you. It is profound.
