By now, you've figured out that I have a growing addiction to all these cooking shows that are on cable. Tonight, it was the season finale of TheNext Food Network Star. You'll have to find out who got their own show, but this last episode was pretty engaging. I didn't watch the show each week, but just catch it from time to time.

The funny thing is, I'm not interested in most of the food that is...

Grace in Every Season.

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." To be poor in spirit does not mean to give up all things and embrace holy poverty with one swoop. Nor is this meant for priests and religious only. No. It is a beatitude for all of us, for it detaches our hearts from earthly possessions and places them into Christ's Sacred Heart.

Sometimes things seem so unfair. How many times have we asked, "why me?" when faced with even the smallest things that come our way? The reality is, there's plenty of people who have it far worse than us. We can either choose to be bitter and angry about our issues, or we can attempt to overcome them.

Not even twenty-one yet, he'll be affected by the decision he made for the rest of his...
