What Is Love? Tools And Resources

by | Mar 24, 2021 | Chastity, Dad, Help, Husband, Love, Man, Nick's Notes

If you haven’t noticed, this topic of Love and Sexuality is very important to me, and I know I have a calling to share an understanding of it that is helpful to anybody who finds it on the vast reaches of the Internet. Aside from my observation and instruction, I want to provide tools to you to further research and use to help align your Love with that of The Lord’s, no matter which Greek meaning you are struggling with or want to grow and develop in your life and the lives of those you influence.

Some of my articles planned for the future are below. They will be linked when they are published, but in case we forget, you can look for them in the tags or categories of this series. Also, be sure to check out the resources page of the web site, and follow the web site path for Vocations, the Twelve Righteous Virtues, and Perfection.


  • In future articles, I wish to develop in greater detail the romantic love imagery in the Mass; how we can apply to our personal lives the spiritual truths of God’s love for us; and how we can grow closer to Christ.
  • Keep an eye out for a set of articles in a different series that I will publish expanding in further detail on feminine beauty from a male perspective, and the distinction between the genders.
  • It is my plan in future independent articles, to develop in more detail tips on how a man can pray the spiritual form of romantic love.

Tell me what Love is to you?

Family – Episode 71

Family – Episode 71

What do we do about Family interactions during the holidays?

In perhaps our most fun episode to date in terms of just rolling with it, Beth tries to make a point while Kristofer goes off into la la land.

Music, movie, cartoon, disco, philosophy, sitcoms and saint references seem to come easily when one person comes from a solid family of origin and another comes from the family that put fun into dysfunctional.

But, seriously, this is good stuff with some actual pointers. And even Larry gets into it…

LOTS of show notes with timestamps here, too.

Prepare The Way Of The Lord

Prepare The Way Of The Lord

“Prepare the Way of The Lord” is an urgent call not unfamiliar to us. But how do we do that? What exactly is “the Way”? Is this something we do on our own?

We look into this familiar yet mysterious calling we all receive from John the Baptist in this week’s Mass readings, and we recognize the call in the first reading from Baruch, Psalm 126, and Paul’s letter to the Philippians – so it must be important!

And it is most appropriate to look into this as Advent gears up. The Lord is coming, and amidst the hustle and bustle of getting ready for Christmas, this is the time for a gut-check to learn how to prepare the way of The Lord all year, and to kickstart that renewed effort now.

There’s a fun activity the kids can help setup, and some discussion questions perfect for donuts after Mass or Sunday dinner as you plan your holiday season!
