New Catholic E-Magazine Joins the Culture War

There's a great new Catholic website joining the raging spiritual battle and I like the way they think. Dr. Peter Kreeft who teaches at Boston College (one of the few sane voices there, I think) is a contributor and has this to say on how to win the culture war:
To win any war, the three most necessary things to know are: (1) that you are at war, (2) who your enemy is, and (3) what weapons or strategies can defeat him.
You cannot win a war (1) if you simply sew peace banners on a battlefield, (2) if you fight civil wars against your allies, or (3) if you use the wrong weapons.Here is a three point checklist for the culture wars.
1. We Are at War...
2. Our Enemy...
3. The Weapon...

Patti Maquire Armstrong has an excellent article on contraception calling for Catholics not just to oppose it, but to "want more children." Openness to life, no not just openness, but the celebration of life should reflect the Biblical imperative that they will know we are Christians by our love. And love is fruitful. Armstrong puts it this way:
I am not telling you to have more children if you do not want them. I am telling you to want them....If our homes and hearts are not open to more children, then we need to go back and open them. We do this by putting God at the center. Whatever stands in the way of openness to life, needs to be pushed aside. Souls, life, God, eternity….these are of the greatest value. The rest will fade away, just as it should. For it is the world that should be fading away and not us. Read the rest here....

There are numerous articles on faith and family, angels and saints, philosophy and practical living. A hungry soul longing for the truth could spend hours on this site filling himself with the nourishing food of the true faith.

So add The Integrated Catholic Life to your favorites and visit often. And if you know someone exploring Catholicism, send them to a place where they will find something they can chew on rather than pabluum or poison.
