by Steve Ray on July 20, 2018

86BED823-3D51-4CE2-A605-9EFA3A4A123DI’ll be landing in Omaha Nebraska very soon and meeting up with Jim Carroll from Spirit Catholic Radio. They are beginning the celebration of their 20th anniversary on the air. I am proud to be their kick off event!

I will be speaking Friday night in Omaha and on Saturday in Lincoln and Grand Island Nebraska. We are also providing an informational meeting prior to my talks at each of these locations for the Spirit Catholic Radio Holy Land Pilgrimage. My wife Janet and I will be leading this exceptional pilgrimage in November 2019.

29FEEF06-B506-4A43-A374-BF8A5ACEF76FJanet and I are proud to be leading the 4th Pilgrimage for Spirit Catholic Radio over the last years.

The theme for the 20th Anniversary is “Journey to Sainthood” which has been a topic burning in my heart for awhile. Looking forward to finally be sharing the most important and essential topic for Catholics and other Christians!

Two Relevant Quotes from Two Brilliant Minds

by Steve Ray on July 17, 2018

Christopher Dawson (@cdawsonquotes)

“Protestantism, Liberalism, and Communism are three successive stages by which our civilization has passed from Catholicism to complete secularism. The first eliminated the Church, the second eliminated Christianity, and the third eliminates the human soul.”
 

Hilaire Belloc (@bellocquotes)

“The Catholic Church is an institution I am bound to hold divine — but for unbelievers a proof of its divinity might be found in the fact that no merely human institution conducted with such knavish imbecility would have lasted a fortnight.”

July 13, 2018

Are we too conservative for our own good?

July 9, 2018

Conservatives are conservative by their very nature. But we must get over being so conservative and start being real and vocal Conservatives. Conservative silence is no longer acceptable. We are in the middle of a cultural war! If we stand idly by, our grandkids will someday ask, “What did you do Grandpa? Where were you […]

I Just Broke the Law and the Pharisees May Come After Me

July 7, 2018

What Should Catholics Say When Accused of Worshiping Images?

July 5, 2018

From Taylor Marshall’s blog. Images “Thou shalt not make unto thyself any graven image.” If you look at the context of the commandment, you’ll see that it speaks to worshiping an image. This is wrong because God is invisible and without form. He is so transcendent that even His name is simply “I AM”. So […]
