Touched by the Celibates

By Erich Wallace. I know the title of my blog is a little edgy with the sexual abuse scandal being a hot topic, but I thought it appropriate to share some experiences I have had in the recent months with some amazing celibate people and how they have affected me. I hope to show that celibacy for the Kingdom of God is not the source of scandal but is rather a beautiful giving of oneself to God and His Church with abandon...

Pro-Life. But Why? (Part 2)

By Erich Wallace. It’s good to be back writing after a long break, and I’m thankful for the responses to my last blog on the pro-life issues! There was a lot of support, but there was also some great dialogue from differing viewpoints...

Pro-Life. But Why?

By Erich Wallace. A few weeks ago, I attended the March for Life in Washington, D.C. with 76 other people from the Diocese of Superior and 650,000 people from across the nation. I have never really done anything “pro-life” per-se, except attend a “Right to Life” banquet several years ago because of a last minute invitation. Saying that, I was excited to get educated about the pro-life movement through this trip...

Is God Real? Is the Bible Credible? Is Jesus Really God?

By Erich Wallace. I hope you’re entering into the new year with renewed joy and passion for life. The Diocese of Superior’s monthly challenge for January is to remain joyful even amidst difficult circumstances, and I just heard a talk by Chris Stefanick from #SEEK2019 about how to keep “The Joy of the Lord” in your life. I have been trying to take these challenges to heart, but I’ve also been encountering the fact that many people are leaving the Catholic Church in our country and missing out on the opportunity to experience this joy...

Preparing the Way

By Erich Wallace. John the Baptist was destined to be one holy dude from the get-go. His birth was foretold by an angel, and the angel said about John: “He will be great before the Lord… and he will turn many of the children of Israel to the Lord their God, and he will go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just, to make ready for the Lord a people prepared,” (Luke 1:15-17). Not bad, huh?...

Putting Christ First: Is It Really Possible?

By Erich Wallace. This last month was busy. I’ve been coaching the high school boys’ soccer team the last couple months, on top of working full-time, trying to run some youth ministry events, and all the while attempting to have a little bit of a social life. It’s been difficult and exhausting, but it’s also been rewarding and life-giving. In the midst of it all, though, something has suffered: my prayer life...

Dying to Oneself

By Erich Wallace. AKA “How to Die (to Oneself) in a Healthy Way (and a Not So Healthy Way).” When I was in college and was just starting to actually read the Scriptures and to learn more about the life of Jesus, I began to encounter some pretty serious struggles...

The Importance of a Personal Invitation

By Erich Wallace. Do you have one of those friends that just has no shame in inviting people to things? Especially Catholic things? These people are changing others’ lives because they have the courage to invite them to a place where they can encounter the risen Christ...
