Affordable Catholic Theology Classes


Dr. Taylor Marshall has a fantastic idea a while back. He wanted to make higher level Catholic theological studies available to more people, with a reasonable time commitment, and at an affordable price. He started the New Saint Thomas Institute. Each class lasts just a month and takes very little time commitment. This is not an accredited college/university. While they do offer 4 certificates, the purpose it to provide affordable and accessible higher education in Catholic theology rather than a degree. They only accept new enrollment once a year, and that is happening now. Take a look.

Fantastic Catholic Parenting Podcast

Two dear friends of my wife and I, Mike and Alicia Hernon, have started a podcast on parenting after much urging from friends and family. Their podcast is called Messy Parenting. Mike and Alicia have 10 kids and Mike is the Vice President of Advancement at the Franciscan University of Steubenville while Alicia is the On-Site Director of Domestic Affairs for the Hernon Household.

What I really love about this podcast, besides hearing the voice of old friends, is their realistic approach to Catholic parenting. They do not water down their efforts to help their children grow up to be Saints and yet they are realistic and don't believe that being a Catholic family means your kids are perfect 24/7. They are very honest in sharing their own struggles.

I encourage you to take a listen:

Play Pac-Man in the Vatican!

Google Maps has a new feature that you may have heard about allowing you to play Pac-Man on just about any map you pull up. It's a very cool idea that someone with too much time on their hands created for the rest of us to get sucked into playing and waste our time as well. Did I mention how cool it is?

One place you can play Pac-Man is on the map of the Vatican... and I know you want to try it! A video clip from Rome Reports below gives you some details. Start at www.maps.google.com and once you find the location that you want, click the Pac-Man link on the bottom left corner of your screen.
