Us, Them & God

In a post-9/11 world, in a suspicious world, in a world where we hide what we have incase a stranger might take it, in a country where we are nervous of immigration, God can remind us of our duty and the standard which we are set in relation to “us” and “them”.

Breastfeeding: Shameful? Hardly!

The story of “Roman Charity” (Caritas romana) is recorded in De Factis Dictisque Memorabilibus Libri IX by the historian Valerius Maximus as an example of Roman honour.

An Example of Manhood

I thought I would share this article written by a man I now know to be a prime example of what many have been calling for: an example for little boys of how to grow into men. I do not say this lightly, but recommend you continue to read his article, and works on his…

Money: the Second Master

Everyone has to think about money at some point. Some may be lucky and have so much money that thinking about it doesn’t worry them too much. Others may have so little that their lives must run a different way, through trade, or sadly out of life. I think the majority of the West are…
