How I Pray: A Peek Into My Prayer Routine


My friend Tom McDonald, who blogs over at God and the Machine at Patheos, recently interviewed me for his series on how people pray. Read a part of the interview below and then click over to Tom’s site for the rest. Enjoy!

Who are you?

In order of importance, I’m a Catholic, a husband, a father, the Content Director for Fr. Barron’s Word on Fire, and a dabbler in writing, blogging, and speaking. I hope to be a saint.

What is your vocation?

Thérèse discovered it before I did: “My vocation is love!” And more specifically, to love my family. I’m convinced the first two questions God will ask at my judgment are how well I loved my wife and how well I loved my children.

Bishops for the Digital Age


At noon time this morning (6:00am ET), Pope Francis named Bishop Christopher Coyne the new bishop of the Diocese of Burlington, Vermont.

Formerly an auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, Bishop Coyne is probably best known for his media expertise. He was the first blogging priest to be named a bishop back in 2011 and remains one of the most active bishops on Twitter. At November’s meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Bishop Coyne was voted chairman-elect of the Committee on Communications.
