St. Joseph exemplifies authentic masculinity. His life offers invaluable insights for those seeking wisdom and inspiration in their walk of faith. Here are four lessons he teaches about true manliness.
Jesus commands to us to love our enemies. Why? How it sane and just to love someone who has hurt you gravely? What does loving such a person entail? How can we love them? Vir Christi answers these difficult questions and more.
What does an intimate friendship with Jesus in the midst of ordinary life look like? How can we cultivate such a friendship, surrounded as we are by so any distractions? Author Serafina recounts how Jesus drew her into such a friendship through simple, natural means that everyone can employ.
A crucifix is a reminder of God’s radical, limitless love. It also confronts us with a daunting challenge as we recall God’s command for us to love as He does. How is this possible for a mere human being crippled by sin? Serafina reflects on all this in her meditation upon Jesus Crucified.
Discouragement is one of the most insidious of temptations. Left unchecked, it can lay havoc to your entire life.
Amber reflects on her recent experience with discouragement and how she draws inspiration from the conversion of St. Peter, a great sinner-turned-saint.
Modern man is sunk in boredom and indifference. But what if there are aliens? How would that affect the way we see ourselves, our place in the universe, and God’s unique Presence among us? Would we finally wake up and reclaim our sense of wonder?
Jesus promises that we will set free, by following Him and believing in Him. What does that mean? We are given free will. How is it freedom to submit our will to Christ’s?

Jesus invites each one of us to follow Him. Sometimes, though, we wonder how to find Him or hear His voice. Author Serafina proposes Adoration as the answer and offers practical suggestions and encouragement regarding spending time with Our Eucharistic Lord.
Seeking God in ordinary life is often a struggle. Lucy Mervin reflects upon how during a trip to New York City, God spoke to her through the discomfort she felt amidst the noise and turbulence of bustling city life.
The Eucharist is the great sacrament of unity in the Church. Oftentimes, though, unity sounds like a lofty, abstract goal.
Here, Vir Christi delves into the unity the Eucharist calls us to and how we can live out this unity in practical ways in our daily lives.
War is a tragic part of the human condition. But there are some wars that are justly fought and others that are not. Here Vir Christi outlines the conditions the Church deems necessary for a war to be just.
Is your prayer life rightly ordered? Over time, I’ve gained some insight into the benefits of ordering the different kinds of prayer we pray a certain way. Here is what I’ve learned.
On this feast of St. Joseph the Worker, I thought it fitting to share some reflections on an short, potent prayer written by Pope St. Pius X.
In this prayer, St. Pius X mentions the virtues necessary to employ in our work, the specific faults we’re inclined to commit, and the spiritual mindset with which we should approach our work.
Our hearts ache for God. Too often, we satisfy this longing with passing earthly pleasures—food, frivolous purchases, even exercise. In our best moments, we turn to God in prayer.
