Hangin’ With A Hermit →
LOL Awesome! Meet Brother Rex, my good friend, and a bona fide, real-deal hermit. Yep, he’s a Franciscan, diocesan hermit, completely legit under canon law yet something of a walking contradiction. He’s the most gregarious hermit I’ve ever met. OH YEAH!
Snoop Dogg the Reincarnation of Bob Marley?... →
WTF? So apparently this is his new thing. I doubt he knew that Bob Marley died an Ethiopian Orthodox Christian. Anyways, MID-LIFE CRISIS?
fatherangel asked: Hello Bro. Mark: Wassup? My priest friend Fr. Frank is visiting and he's going through my dashboard and found your post asking why you never get trolled, attacked, etc. I agreed it was your ninja internet skills. He started laughing and said to send you quote, "Woe to you, when men speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in just the same way!" All in good...

catholicmemes: We’re some Cool Catholics :)
Am I not doing internet right? I am not getting much trolling, vitrol, or general or even mild hate? I don’t get rude comments in my tumblr, twitter, or facebook, or any other internet venue (with only one exception). Must be my ninja skills.
talitha—koum: I really want to work for the Church, but I am not drawn to Youth Ministry. Any thoughts on what I could do? This is going to take too long to write a response in your post.

Your average parish might have an Administrative Assistant/Secratary, Director of Finances, and...

For anybody who knows that I deleted my facebook profile, and is now here looking for answers. For anybody who either misses me, or might be hurt by my absence, I ask for your understanding and forgiveness.

The couple across from me in panera are working on seperate laptops, ipads and iphones and earbuds, like machines, and people ask me why I’m deleting my facebook.

bennj831: After being told repeatedly by a friend, I decided to yell uncle and create a Tumblr page. I’m not sure what I’ll end up posting; I’ll prob post the randomness found within the mind of a wanderer. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

marylikesbagels: “What is NFP?” you ask? It stands for Natural Family Planning. It is a method of spacing and planning pregnancy through periods of abstinence and sexual activity. Here’s what you need to know: 1. It’s completely natural. It’s based on the individual woman’s natural bodily cycle. (Which means… dude check it out its pretty awesome.

Thank you tumblr peoples
Thank you tumblr friends, and followers. I know I’m old, and don’t get all the memes. I know I barely interact, or don’t even follow back. I know I might appear to be a self-absorbed seminarian. Thank you for tolerating all my rap music promotion for the time being. Every little bit helps. And also thank you to everyone who follows me, and does not give care for any rap music...
Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And...– St. Augustine (via karlitay) I have seen this quote making the rounds on tumblr, attributed to Saint Augustine. I do like the quote, and would love to give credit where it is due. As an Augustinian, I just want to make it clear that it is not indeed from Augustine, but from Captain Corelli’s...

I am currently working on my next hip hop album project. Please pray for me! I currently do not have a title for it.

Jennifer Fulwiler: Open-Minded about Religion →
Jennifer Fulwiler asks whether it is possible or not to raise one kids to be open-minded about religion. For some parents, open-minded means never committing to anything specific. Jennifer challenges that: If being in a state of open-mindedness means that you’re asking questions, seeking knowledge, and attempting to evaluate data without bias, it seems that that should be a transitory...
O Lord my God, let my soul praise you
O Lord my God, let my soul praise you that it may love you, and let it recount to you your mercies that it may praise you for them all. And all Your creation praises you and never lapses into silence. You are praised too by every person whose lips are turned to You in prayer. Animals and even lifeless matter never cease to praise you through the mouths of those who give them heed. With...

To Be or Not to Be I am not opposed to Agnosticism in the same way that I am opposed to Atheism. Atheists are just as adamant about the nonexistence of God as theists are about the existence of God. Skeptics and empiricists should be just as wary of atheists as they are of theists. Both have their philosophical proofs, their rational arguments, and their experiences —and both claim to speak the...

The Existence of Jesus →
From the Huffington Post (via kenosis-theosis) Contrary to some circles on the Internet, very few scholars doubt that Jesus existed, preached and led a movement. Scholars’ confidence has nothing to do with theology but much to do with historiographic common sense. What movement would make up a recent leader, executed by a Roman governor for treason, and then declare, “We’re his...
