|Go and proclaim the good news - Make Easter an opportunity to reflect on good deeds and love
March 26 at 4:26 pm
How many of us have answered a knock at the door on a Saturday morning and looking through the peephole or window, spot two Jehovahís Witnesses coming to spread their beliefs?
What are our reactions?

|Stonecipher protects state constitution - as all should

Some of you may be under the impression that the Attorney General of Louisiana enforces the state constitution. Thatís how it should be, but the AG is a statewide elected official, i.e. politician.
|Obama should approve Keystone
March 20 at 10:39 am
The future of Keystone XL pipeline is still up in the air after some seven years of controversy over whether or not the mineral transportation facility should be completed from oil fields in Canada to refineries in Texas.
|Have the courage to be holy
March 13 at 11:07 am
What does it mean to be holy in todayís world? To some, holiness is an abstract concept that they cannot define, but will know it when they see it in someone.
|Consistent prayer leads to many blessings
March 13 at 11:00 am
Below I share a prayer experience as I entered into one of the mysteries of the Rosary. It is vulnerable to share my deeper heart of prayer because it is a very intimate and sacred time with God. And, as well, it is difficult to fully capture the extent of what I may experience; because it is always hard to capture in words the deeper heart experiences.
|Letís give Jindal a chance

|So who is responsible for wetlands damage?
February 27 at 2:31 pm
It was disturbing to learn that a judge has dismissed the suit by the Southeast Louisiana Flood Protection Authority-East for compensation from oil and gas companies because of damages to our coast that occurred during their exploration and development. The law may give them the right to do their work under permits, but it appears that most of those permits required leaving the lands and wetlands they explored in good condition when finished that would not deteriorate the Louisiana coast.

Louisianaís erosion along the coast needs more attention before it is too late. Itís time to speed up the process so our water wonderland doesnít leave the land behind completely.
|Letís not kill unborn babies
January 23 at 10:37 am
Hopefully, it is becoming less mainstream to kill human life in our world through abortion. It appears that way in our area at least as an abortion facility planned in May 2013 in the 4600 block of South Claiborne Ave. in New Orleans has yet to get off the ground.
|Driverless vehicles wonít solve problems
January 16 at 2:29 pm
Itís hard to understand how driverless automobiles will help to relieve our traffic and transportation problems. But that, apparently, is what Google and others are anticipating.
|Donít brand Scalise as a David Duke
January 09 at 9:27 am
We thought the political days of David Duke, our Ku Klux Klansman of yesteryear, were over when he disappeared from public attention after defeats in several races. One of them was in a runoff for governor against Edwin Edwards in which bumper stickers advertised ďVote for the crook. Itís important.Ē And they elected Edwards.
|Letís get countries n the world together
December 19, 2014 at 9:54 am
The United States needs to push its efforts to get other countries together on disagreements that seem to be tearing the world apart on issues such as creating a Palestinian state before a peace treaty is signed between the two countries. And there are other matters of concern, especially in the Middle East where forces of various views are trying to take control.
|Louisiana politics take a turn
December 11, 2014 at 3:38 pm
