“The Resurrection of Jesus,” says the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “is the crowning truth of our faith in Christ, a faith believed and lived as the central truth by the first Christian community; handed on as fundamental by Tradition; established by the documents of the New Testament; and preached as an essential part of the Paschal mystery al…
 
Faithful cross, above all other, One and only noble tree: None in foliage, none in blossom, None in fruit thy peers may be: Sweetest wood and sweetest iron, Sweetest weight is hung on thee. While each time we see a cross or a crucifix and every time we attend Mass we have the opportunity to ponder Christ’s great sacrifice, during Holy Week it becom…
 
St. Benedict in his Rule wrote concerning prayer, “ ‘Seven times in the day,’ says the Prophet [psalmist], ‘I have rendered praise to you.’ Now that sacred number of seven will be fulfilled by us if we perform the offices of our service at the time of the morning office, of prime, of terce, of sext, of none, of vespers and of compline, since it was…
 
Selling the value of content in a technical B2B space comes down to understanding the perspective of the organization. B2B marketing strategist Michael Barber explains how to get the right perspective, how to use retention metrics to understand what customers are doing and not doing, how content can help sell services around a product, and more.…
 
Education, as the current US Department of Education website has it, is all about “student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness.” If that's the case, then it stands to reason that education will be entirely pragmatic, teaching skills—marketable skills—and that student success will be a function of pragmatic, marketable skills. Tha…
 
Measuring the success of conversion content, and merchandising your CTA to improve conversion, can be much simpler than you might think. Media Volery founder Zontee Hou explores the ways to create and optimize conversion content, the importance of refining your call to action, the value of auditing and refreshing older content, and so much more.…
 
We Americans are nothing if not activists. In our homes, in our careers, in our parishes we’re the people who want to make things happen. And so it may come as a surprise to read Pope St. John Paul II’s words, “In the consecrated life the proclamation of the Gospel to the whole world finds fresh enthusiasm and power.” In 1996, after a synod about t…
 
Top-of-the-funnel (TOFU) content, or awareness content, can be an incredibly effective part of any content marketing strategy.

It may be hard to believe, but the Catholic Church has a patron saint of humor: Philip Neri who noted that, “A cheerful and glad spirit attains to perfection much more readily than a melancholy spirit.” And my observation is that we can become cheerful and glad people as we laugh. Last week The After-Dinner Scholar featured Wyoming Catholic College…
 
Winston Churchill once quipped, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” Wyoming Catholic College senior, Miss Amanda Johnson enthusiastically agrees.

B2B marketing expert Pam Didner explains that it doesn't have to difficult after all. Listen to find out what it takes to get there, and the unique ways she's found success in traditional marketing.…
 
Mark Twain observed, “There are only two types of speakers in the world. 1. The nervous and 2. Liars.” I suspect that our Wyoming Catholic College seniors can relate. In the fall semester, Wyoming Catholic College seniors write theses on topics of their choosing. This week, at the beginning of Spring semester, each senior will share his or her thes…
 
In his Divine Comedy, writes Wyoming Catholic College professor Dr. Jason Baxter, Dante “intentionally gathered creatures, places, landscapes, and practices from across the world and types of encyclopedic texts and then filled his book with their imagines; and, second, the poet consistently and insistently constructs moment in which we—along with t…
 
"Pay attention!" We heard this countless times as children, right? We learned at an early age that attention is highly sought after. Neen James explains that attention is actually one of the most important considerations for marketers. Listen to find out how to earn the attention of your audience while also prioritizing your own attention to improv…
 
Most people, when winter sets in, are willing to go out now and again, but would rather sit by a fire with a hot beverage reading. No doubt our Wyoming Catholic College freshmen would enjoy that, but instead this week they’re camping in the shadow of the Grand Teton. Just as our freshmen arrive early for fall semester so that they can spend three w…
 
Regarding the civilizations of ancient Rome and Greece, Numa Denis Fustel de Coulanges wrote in 1864, “What we have received from them leads us to believe that we resemble them. We have some difficulty in considering them as foreign nations; it is almost always ourselves that we see in them. Hence spring many errors.” The ancient city, writes Coula…
 
St. James wrote, “Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick man, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.” (James 5:13-15) What with COVID, you’d expect we’d hear ra…
 
If you come to Lander, Wyoming, it’s hard not to notice the landscape: cliffs, rises, canyons, and the high peaks of the Wind River Mountain Range. College for Wyoming Catholic College freshmen begins by studying God’s first book: The Creation. During their three-week freshman expedition they drink in the beauty, majesty, and power.. When they retu…

C. S. Lewis told the story of his brother's experience on a bus. As they passed a church with a creche outside, a woman remarked “Oh Lor’! They bring religion into everything. Look—they’re dragging it even into Christmas now!” That was way back in 1959. Even then Lewis found the commercialization and secularization of Christmas revolting contrastin…
 
“I sometimes ask myself,” said Albert Einstein, “how it came about that I was the one to develop the theory of relativity. The reason, I think, is that a normal adult never stops to think about the problem of space and time. These are things which he has thought of as a child. But my intellectual development was retarded, as a result of which I beg…
 
While there are many novels in our era and prior to our era that have unhappy endings, novelist Jane Austen did not write any of them. Austen’s novels end, for the good characters, just as we would hope. “I am the happiest creature in the world,” writes Elizabeth Bennett about her engagement near the end of Pride and Prejudice. “Perhaps other peopl…
 
Summing up the reign of Israel’s first king, 1Chronicles 10 tells us, “So Saul died for his unfaithfulness; he was unfaithful to the Lord in that he did not keep the command of the Lord, and also consulted a medium, seeking guidance, and did not seek guidance from the Lord. Therefore the Lord slew him, and turned the kingdom over to David the son o…
 
Novelist Fredrick Beuchner wrote, “In the silence of a midwinter dusk, there is a sound so faint that for all you can tell it may be only the sound of the silence itself. You hold your breath to listen. You are aware of the beating of your heart. The extraordinary thing that is about to happen is matched only by the extraordinary moment just before…
 
“First of all, then,” St. Paul wrote in 1Timothy 2:1-4, “I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all men, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life, godly and respectful in every way.” We might have expected St. Paul to tell Timothy to pray “for kings and all wh…
 
In 1959 Oxford University Press published a 200-page book containing 451 translations (half of them in English) of a single 16-line Latin poem, Ad Pyrrham or “The Ode to Pyrrha.” The poet—now nearly forgotten—was perhaps the most influential poet of all time. His name: Quintus Horatius Flaccus, known in the English-speaking world as Horace. For 2,0…
 
Beginning the second semester of freshman year, Wyoming Catholic College students begin studying Euclidian geometry. Students prepare for each class carefully waiting to be called to the board to demonstrate one of this week’s propositions. Euclid wrote his Elements in about 300 BC. Beginning with the definitions of a point and a line, he construct…
 
In Homer’s Odyssey, Odysseus, struggling to get home from Calypso’s island, is shipwrecked. Naked, destitute, looking for all the world like a vagabond, he is nonetheless welcomed by Alkinoos, king of the Phaiakians. Alkinoos and his people treat him like a king, take his story to heart, and transport him to his home Ithaka with a vast trove of gif…
 
We’ve all experienced walking into a church in which the architecture and/or the sacred art was… let’s say "unpleasant" to the point of distraction. And we’ve all had the experience of entering a church whose beauty draws us into the mysteries of the Faith and upward to God and to worship. Sacred art can and should have a profound effect on our spi…
 
“Ours is an education of immersion,” we say on our college website “immersion in the Western tradition, immersion in the beauty and challenges of the wilderness, immersion in the treasures of our Catholic spiritual heritage.” When planning a time to record this interview our Latin rite college chaplain Msgr. Daniel Seiker, Monsignor pulled out his …
 
Poet Sally Thomas in the August/September issue of First Things wrote, “It is one thing to talk about the Resurrection. It is quite another to see the Easter fire struck in the night, the candle lit, the light of Christ filling the tomblike darkness of the waiting church. As a Catholic, I live and relive that liturgy every year; every year it aston…
 
In an op-ed column in USAToday last week, Wyoming Catholic College senior Anthony Jones wrote: “I gathered with the entire student body of Wyoming Catholic College on Sept. 17, 2019, for a mandatory celebration of Constitution Day.
