I saw this syndicated article in my local Catholic newspaper. It is an excellent article from Father Robert Barron on goodness’ dependence on God. – A must read!

I wanted to share the following article from Saint Joseph’s College of Maine’s Theology Blog, written by Dr. Carmina Chapp, an instructor in the Theology program, and follower of this website. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!

Each professor will cover different topics, based upon their expertise. I highly recommend this new site to my followers. You can read the inaugural blog post at:
