A Series of Posts – Bringing it Home – Mary as Mediatrix

http://www.unhub.com/hugodlr (for my Facebook fans!) 🙂 The titles of “Mediatrix” and “Co-Redemptrix” are not officially defined dogmas of the Catholic Church regarding Mary (I defined the dogmas at the beginning of this document). They may be used of her in an unofficial capacity, but again, like the actual Marian dogmas of the Church, they are […]

A Series of Posts – Worship of Mary & the Saints

I post on my blog using Windows Live Writer, and then that blog post gets pulled into my Facebook page using Simplaris Blogcast. But it doesn’t seem to provide a link (only the first paragraph), so I’ll see if the links I posted above go through. 🙂 And now, on to your regularly scheduled blog […]

A Series of Posts – A Scripture Passage

I’ve already written about the passages where it talks about Jesus’ siblings, but one Scripture passage also deals with family – where he talks directly to Mary, his mother.

A Series of Posts

One of the people I work with received a multi-page document arguing that the Catholic Church is erroneous in our teachings about Mary and the saints. I wrote a reply. The next several posts will be taken from that reply. Enjoy 🙂 I. Catholic Approach to Scripture My response starts with the way Catholics view […]


I found a website that consolidates info for those of us that have digital profiles all over the internet. 🙂 The site is called unhub.com, and it let’s you place a bar over your websites with links to all of your other sites. The easiest way to see what I mean is to see it […]

Energy Savings for Texans

There’s a program for Texas residents (please excuse me if you’re a non-Texas resident!) where a repair company will come into your home and do an energy assessment. If they find issues, they’ll fix some of them for free 🙂 They’re in my home @ this very moment, and so far they’ve checked my attic’s […]
