See Your Job and the World from the Bright Side and Not the Dark Side

--> For about as long as I can remember, I’ve been taking one course or another about different subjects every several months. I take courses in just about every topic you can imagine and love taking these courses. Typically, the courses I take are three or four-day affairs, and executives from one company or another are always flown in for these events by their companies to attend. I’m at one of these things today that’s about to start within the next couple of hours. Incredibly, for the next s...

10 Ways Creation Can Move Us to Prayer & Gratitude

Let us always begin with a keen awareness of the glory, greatness, and love of God as Creator in  our own person. Never should we forget our destiny and our dignity that flow from God’s loving kindness and abundant mercy. You were created in the image and likeness of God. Then, as a result of God’s infinite bounty, He endowed you with one of the greatest gifts: the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. From this you entered into a deep and intimate union with the Trinitarian Family—the Father, the Son, and...

Spiritual Warfare is a Daily Reality

As 2018 dawned, I was excited about life. My wife was pregnant with our first child, I had received a Christmas bonus and a hand-written note from the boss. I was ready to grow the company’s communications presence after a successful 2017. Sure, there were challenges. My wife had just left a position with a company that was downsizing because they didn’t have enough revenue. She was the most expensive and last-hired employee, and she was dealing with morning sickness. We figured she would find a...

Jobs For All Now! Some Truths About Diversity and Inclusion

  “People are tired of talking about D&I, frustrated by the lack of results and overwhelmed by the number of issues to be addressed.” That’s downright abysmal – and frankly, disheartening. For a long time, diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives took a backseat to other business priorities. Companies claimed to have their reasons, valid or not, […]

Ever wondered why violins have f-shaped holes?

Instruments have gone through hundreds and sometimes thousands of years of refining to the form we recognise them in today. So why do guitars have a big circular hole in the centre whilst violins have fanciful f-shapes on either side of their strings? The earliest known depiction of a lira. Carving found in a Byzantine ivory casket (900 – 1100 AD) Over 1000 years ago the fiddle, or ‘fithele’, was spreading across Europe as string instruments became more complex and sought after.

The connection between MLK and recruiters

We’re off today, but we’ll leave you with this: if, as a recruiter, you’re obsessed with finding flaws in candidates to reduce your funnel, shouldn’t you also embrace that Dr. King, who we celebrate today, was a flawed man — and maybe that’s the point? Isn’t it time we looked at candidate profiles and backgrounds […]

The rightful heirs to the British crown: Wales and the sovereignty of Britain

The Mabinogion is a collective name given to eleven medieval Welsh tales found mainly in two manuscripts – the White Book of Rhydderch (c. 1350), and the Red Book of Hergest (dated between 1382 and c.1410). The term is a scribal error for mabinogi, derived from the Welsh word mab meaning ‘son, boy’; its original meaning was probably ‘youth’ or ‘story of youth’, but finally it meant no more than ‘tale’ or ‘story’. The title was popularized in the nineteenth century when Lady Charlotte Guest trans...

Models of Purity: St. Thomas Aquinas’s Devotion to St. Agnes

St. Thomas Aquinas’s feast day (January 28) is the octave day of the feast of St. Agnes (January 21). While this may seem inconsequential, there are many points of connection between these two great saints. First, they are both from central Italy: St. Agnes from Rome and St. Thomas from just south, Aquino, between Rome and Naples. Second, they both were from influential aristocratic families, Agnes from a noble Roman family and Aquinas from a mixed Germanic and Italian family, related to the Hol...

What We Can Learn from the Old Testament’s Runaway Prophets

Who wouldn’t want to be a prophet? Well, a lot of the people who were actually prophets in the Old Testament. Moses, when called out of the burning bush, essentially responded by asking ‘Why me?’ (Exodus 3:11). Elijah, fresh off vanquishing all the prophets of Baal, is unnerved by Jezebel and flees in the wilderness, asking God for death (1 Kings 19:4). Most infamously, Jonah literally ran away from his calling (Jonah 1:3). Other Old Testament prophets sometimes resisted their vocation as well. ...

La Canicule: A Portrait of Travel in Provence

July mornings arrive in Provence like a gentle pouring of milk into a black cup of coffee. The nocturnal meanderings of feral cats and sanglier acquiesce to shaded rest in the brambles and underbrush. Spiders, scorpions, and small lizards man their stations in anticipation of the diurnal insect menagerie which will soon come to life. Day bugs and night bugs: a changing of the guard ceremoniously observed. An hour after sunrise, the heat has settled like a weighted blanket on the recently cool l...
