  • The blog header depicts an important and yet mis-understood New Testament scene, Jesus flogging the money-changers out of the temple. I selected it because the faith that gives us consolation can also make us very uncomfortable. Both Divine Mercy and Divine Justice meet in Jesus. Priests are ministers of reconciliation, but never at the cost of truth. In or out of season, we must be courageous in preaching and living out the Gospel of Life. The title of my blog is a play on words, not Flogger Priest but Blogger Priest.

The Ultimate Homeschooler Video Game?

Although this promotion exhibits a false game for a real one (Dante’s Inferno), what else does it communicate? Is it simply a fun parody which should make us laugh (at ourselves)? Or does it inadvertantly imply that Mass and church attendance is boring? Are traditional Catholics being mocked?
