This isn’t going to work. How could it? My mind is made up. I’m done with God. If it wasn’t for my mom practically begging me and my former youth minister’s persistence, I wouldn’t be at Catholic Heart Workcamp right now. I tried to explain to them it’s a waste of their breath and a [...]

Growing up, I looked at the homily as a halftime break. After all the standing and singing and listening to readings, I could relax and sit [...]
