    On the Demise of the True Love of Friends in an Age of Lost Innocence Msgr. Charles Pope • January 3, 2016 • One of the casualties of the sexual revolution has been the love that is friendship.The Greek language has several different words for love. The love between friends is phileo, and is different from eros (physical, sensual love), storge (family love), and agape (selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love of God or another). Modern English sadly lacks such distinctions. However, in the past we were pretty well able navigate the different types of love and not read inaccurate motivations into...

    We're taking Larry deer hunting this weekend. After 35 years in the woods with Larry, sadly, this will be our last together. After 40 years at the same job, he finally had enough and retired this past spring. He's a mere 62 years old. He left his job on a Friday and started his new job the next Monday. Working at a local golf course. Cutting grass, doing maintenance, free lunch everyday and free golf on Mondays. He was in heaven. About three months ago, his eyesight was suddenly failing him. The eye doctor said that there was something affecting...
  • Theres a Way to Stop Mass Shootings, and You Wont Like It.

    There’s a Way to Stop Mass Shootings, and You Won’t Like It.That’s right. You’re not going to like it because it’s going to require you to do something personally, as opposed to shouting for the government, or anyone to “do something!”You ready? Here it is:“Notice those around you who seem isolated, and engage them.”If every one of us did this we’d have a culture that was deeply committed to ensuring no one was left lonely. And make no mistake, as I’ve written before loneliness is what causes these shooters to lash out. People with solid connections to other people don’t indiscriminately...

Also on the program, we will discuss how Jesus Christ provides a template for friendships, as the perfect model for them, on this edition of...

Noah Van Vooren of Little Chute, Wisconsin now has a chance to attend Edgewood College and it seems he could not be happier. What is most incredible is that when Noah was born he was not expected to walk according to his doctors. Noah reads his own letter, despite an offer from his dad to read the letter.

The first love we shared was Affection, which is best exemplified in the love of parents for offspring and offspring for parents. It got lots of likes, though more from females.

So I grabbed the school directory and called up my best friend at the moment, Sean. Hi? Hey, its Billy Okay The call was over in seconds.

    (CBS News) Just weeks after the 100th anniversary of President Richard Nixon's birth, a new exhibit at his presidential library is raising eyebrows. It contains newly declassified documents that reveal Nixon's correspondence with President Bill Clinton, and a surprisingly warm relationship between the two. The correspondence includes a personal, handwritten letter from Nixon congratulating Clinton on surviving a tough primary and general election to win the White House. That letter was the beginning of an unlikely union between the former Republican president and the newly elected Democratic chief executive.

It's part of what makes Acacia, Acacia. "Some people say they feel sorry for me. I tell them not to be," she said. "I don't care that I'm different. I like that I'm different."

    LifeSiteNews ^ | June 14th, 2012 | Patrick B. Craine
    June 13, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - When close friends are presented in film or literature today, the conclusion is often: Oh, they are gay. One of the tragedies of our culture, in its vigorous acceptance of the homosexual agenda, is the corrosion of a true understanding of friendship. What is Friendship? Have we lost our concept of it? Today, Friendship is considered either mere casual companionship, or, if it is something deeper, a latent sexual urge. But traditionally, Friendship was neither of these things. In The Four Loves, novelist and philosopher C. S. Lewis describes Friendship as a love in its...

    SAN ANTONIO -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry remains one of the front-runners for the Republican Presidential Nomination, and depending on who you ask, many think he'll get it. John Sharp, the recently confirmed Chancellor of Texas A&M University who ran against Perry in the 1998 general election for Lieutenant Governor, gave his take on the race while visiting Texas A&M- San Antonio on Tuesday. "It's a full time deal running against Rick Perry, and anybody who sells him short is an idiot, because it will be a tough campaign," Sharp said. Sharp has known Perry since his college days, where...

    Unprecedented accusation against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: a Muslim cleric accused the Iranian president of wanting "friendship with Israel," an Iranian website associated with the opposition reported on Thursday. According to religious scholar Mahmoud Nubian, Ahmadinejad's top adviser Esfandiar Rahim Mashaei stated three years ago that Iran should have "friendly ties" with the Jewish State, but Ahmadinejad has refrained from reiterating this position in public because of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei's fierce objection. Nubian further claimed that the Iranian president personally told him that he supported Mashaei's statement, but couldnt say anything out of respect to the leader.

    Girls ask themselves this question. Guys ask the same thing too. Movie stars ask this question. First grade teachers ask it as well. This question greatly troubles some individuals, while others dont struggle with it too much. Yet, the question is there. There are people who make this the objective of their life. It does not matter what they have to do, they will do it to bring about the desired result. Many parents worry about this with their children. They do so to their own detriment. Politicians typically dont care about this as long as they get votes. Someone...

    Friendships are an important part of our lives. Ever since we were young, we have formed these relationships with other individuals and they have brought us times of sadness and happiness, exhilaration and frustration. Some of these friendships have been more shallow and superficial while others have been much more strong and long-lasting. As we grow and mature, we discover that these strong, fulfilling friendships require much effort and work to maintain. Thats probably why most people have so few of them. Ive heard many individuals say, on a number of occasions, that they can count the number of good...

    Dear Friend or Foe, I'm kind of a geeky person and have never had many friends. When I graduated from college, I moved in with a female roommate who monopolized my social life. Eventually we both moved on to romantic relationships without any drama. But she suddenly manufactured a huge fight, and we stopped speaking. Then I married, became involved in my husband's church, and made friends there. After I divorced, the church took the attitude that "nice women don't do that." My husband, who had never even attended regularly, was suddenly invited to eat Thanksgiving dinner with the minister,...

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, Virginia Republican, suggested the relationship is tepid, telling the Politico that Mr. Obama does not appear to be a "true friend" to the Jewish nation. Some beg to differ, however. "Mr. Cantor has decided to position himself as the arbiter of who is and who isn't pro-Israel in this country. Setting aside Cantor's lack of sterling professional foreign-policy credentials, is it wise for him to set himself up as such a figure?" asks Ira N. Fornan, CEO of...

    This time of year we hear of many people writing list of goals for the new year, a New Years Resolution. The problem most people face is that mid-January they stop working towards those goals. Why do people lose track of goals like this? The answer is the simple fact that they lack the ability to commit. A commitment is a vow you make between you and someone else. Whether it's just for yourself, or between a spouse,a friend, or the Lord. Commitment is by definition:
