Vatican knew about Bishop Zanchetta’s “obscene” selfies in 2015, say Argentine Church officials


There seems to be more to the Steubenville kerfuffle than meets the eye...


There seems to be more to the Covington Catholic kerfuffle than meets the eye...
Rod Dreher
Good morning from Dublin. It is really interesting to observe US public controversies from outside the American bubble. I am startled by the massive controversy that has erupted over the Covington (KY) Catholic school boys and the Native American man, Nathan Phillips, in the aftermath of the March For Life. Several video clips of the confrontation between an elder of the Omaha tribe and a large group of Catholic high school boys wearing MAGA hats have gone viral...


Covington Catholic, rage and civil war...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
The incident with the boys from Covington Catholic at March for Life echoes ominously in our culture. It indicates the fragility of our society and the divisions that run deep in our country. It reveals the levels of rage and blame in our society and there are several problems with what happened: First of all, the mainstream media jumped on the story and promoted the anti-Catholic...

The readings for this Lord’s Day highlight Jesus as our spiritual bridegroom...
John Bergsma
This Sunday we remain in the afterglow of Epiphany, the celebration of the “manifestation” of Jesus’ divine glory. [Greek epi – phaino = “shine upon” = “reveal, manifest.”] Epiphany, which once was its own season (like Advent or Christmas), has often been associated with three events from the Gospels: the Magi, the Baptism...


The age of deference by bishops toward the Holy Father has taken a decisive turn...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
As depicted in the television series The Crown, a member of the House of Lords publicly criticizes the Queen’s old-fashioned and “priggish” ways as out of keeping with a “new” Britain. In a bit of creative license, the Queen meets secretly with Lord Altrincham to seek his counsel. What is it that has changed? What is part of the old Britain that no longer holds...


St. Sebastian, pray for us!...
Rick Becker
If you have (or ever have had) children in Catholic schools around here, chances are good that they played sports at some point. And if that’s the case, then the chances are even better that you know the Inter-City Catholic League (ICCL) Athlete’s Prayer by heart. It’s recited before every Catholic school match-up, and it ends with this enthusiastic invocation: “Saint Sebastian...


Father James Schall reflects on life and death...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
A few weeks ago, the word was that Father James V. Schall, S. J., was in his final days. At 91, that’s not too shocking. At the same time, the “retired,” storied Georgetown politics professor remains more productive than many of us. So I sent him a few questions the other day about life and death, and he answered. It’s a mediation on everything — all of the things we really ought to be thinking about more...

My Dear Wormwood, Forgive my tardy response to your last flaming missive (or—if you really want to impress me—don’t) in which you attempt to berate me for insufficiently appreciating your efforts at sowing discord within the venue of American Politics. As they say in your circles, “Goon, get over yourself.” Political discord...

Covington Catholic students at the Indigenous Peoples March: What we know...


Why March for Life? “They’re only babies...”...
John Zmirak
A right-wing atheist I knew at Yale liked to get under believers’ skins. At 22, he sported a prophet’s hipster John Brown beard. He taught some younger members of the Party of the Right to channel Nietzsche, swig bourbon, and target shoot beer bottles just off campus. I thought him pernicious. As an angry Catholic culture warrior from Queens...


Rumors of the death of detente with traditionalists may be exaggerated...
John Allen
As expected, Pope Francis on Saturday formally abolished the “Ecclesia Dei” commission, ending its over thirty-year run as the Vatican’s primary forum for relations with the Society of St. Pius X, founded by the late French Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, and the broader traditionalist galaxy in the Church. First reported by a series of traditionalist blogs in December...


Biblical basics about Mother Mary...
Msgr. Charles Pope
In this Sunday’s Gospel passage of the wedding feast at Cana, there is a theological portrait of both Mother Mary and prayer. Let’s look at the Gospel along five lines: The place that Mary has, the prayer she makes, the portrait of Mary, and the power and product of her prayer.


Former athlete Katrina Gallic found strength in her paralysis — and call to join the March for Life...
Stephen Beale
When Katrina Gallic was entering high school, one of the things the future pro-life advocate was most excited about was being a sprinter for the track team. “The thrill of being able to run very quickly — I loved it when I was a kid. I thought it was so fun,” said Gallic, now 23. Running was one of the few constants Gallic had...

Pope Francis suppresses Ecclesia Dei, transfers duties to CDF...
Edward Pentin
As had been widely expected, Pope Francis has issued a papal decree suppressing the pontifical commission charged with bringing separated traditional Catholics linked to the Society of St. Pius X back into full communion. In a motu proprio signed Jan. 17 and published today, the Pope decreed that the Pontifical Commission ‘Ecclesia Dei’ is to be abolished but that its work will continue in a “special section” of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith...

An incorrupt heart, 17,000 youth, and the hope of SEEK19...
Fr. Patrick Briscoe
At the same time that the bishops of the United States gathered at Mundelein Seminary at the behest of Pope Francis for a week of prayer and reflection concerning the clergy sexual abuse crisis, 17,000 young people met just 200 miles away in Indianapolis, Indiana. While the shepherds of the Church were on retreat, the Indiana Convention Center was transformed for the biennial Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) SEEK Conference...
