An IPhone App for Confession?

Yep, there’s an app for that!  “Confession: A Roman Catholic App” is out now and it helps you find the needed focus to make a spiritual inventory (called an examination of conscience) so you can go to confession with a real priest and feel prepared.

Can technology help us find God, or Faith? Well, Pope Benedict XVI has encouraged priests to get involved in at least one aspect of online ministry, whether blogs, podcasts or something else, so the Catholic church is already embracing the God through technology idea.

This little blog you’re reading here is an attempt to revive personal piety through technology as well. It is an encouragement to pray and build up you faith through the praying of the Lord’s Prayer. Will it help? I hope so!

The National Anthem

For the umpteenth time I saw someone butcher the National Anthem on national television. It amazes me how we can sing this song all our lives at every Friday night football game, and then ask someone without that experience to sing our song.

Granted, the melody is horrendous! It starts unreasonable low and then soars unrealistically high. But, the song is just not that long. How hard can it be?

Believe it or not, I once heard a pastor get halfway through the Lord’s Prayer and then switch off to the Pledge of Allegiance. And it wasn’t even Super Bowl Sunday!

Learn the Lord’s Prayer. Use it every day.
