- College is not for everyone. And, it is certainly not good for everyone to go to college, as there are now 6 million more college graduates (bachelor's degrees only) than jobs available for them.

- Blessed Mother Teresa would be unimpressed by our current "pastoral" approach to sin (which is also a retreat from holiness).
- Our "daily" bread?
- A related note regarding Kim Davis.
- The secret to success without hard work.
