I’m a devout Catholic, and I fully accept and support all of the Catholic Church’s teachings on social issues that divide the world today.

“Why sports? What’s so good about a few dudes and a ball? Don’t you have better things to do?” Questions such as these have been leveled at me for years. Every time, I roll my eyes, smile to myself and shake my head because the silly person asking any of these questions just does not [...]

Bikram yoga is basically yoga in [...]
