Ecstatic love and Real Presence...
Anthony Lilles
Ecstasy is a total going out of oneself. It is an abandonment of all else save for what has captured the heart. It is a getting caught up in the beauty, the glory of something - someone outside of myself. Ecstasy is to be rendered fully present to the other - the beloved before me captures my attention until I am aware of nothing else...

5 possibilities for a grand Catholic experiment in ‘open innovation’...
John Allen
In what could either be seen as a remarkable blow for democracy in the Church, or as a craven ploy for publicity about an asset otherwise consigned to obscurity, the Salesian religious order has thrown open a choice to the public that’s usually reserved to authority. At issue is this: What to do with a property which, not so long ago...


Will everyone go to Heaven?
John Bergsma
I think part of our contemporary struggle with the doctrines of heaven and hell is that we have an inadequate idea of what each place is like. Most Americans probably think of heaven as like a Disney World in the sky, guarded by gates and either St. Peter, or Jesus, or some angels as gate-keepers. You can get into the eternal amusement park if you've done more "good" than "bad" in your life...

To found a school...
R. Jared Staudt
I’m joyfully anticipating Bl. John Henry Newman’s canonization on October 13th, a momentous day for the Church and for Catholic education in particular. Newman wrote the most comprehensive and in depth work on the nature of Catholic education in his Idea of a University. The book arose from a series of addresses he gave to the faculty of the university he founded in Dublin...

Catholic fiction has 3 problems: writers afraid to write, publishers afraid to publish, readers afraid to read...
Elizabeth Scalia
It’s been nearly a decade since poet and USC Professor Dana Gioia wrote an essay urging Catholic writers to “renovate and reoccupy” their own tradition within the literary culture, and it is a discussion that has been ongoing among Catholics since then—part of a broad pondering of what the “Christian imagination” means in the twenty-first century...


The Assumption of Mary is a historical fact with biblical roots...


12 things to know and share about the Assumption of Mary...
Jimmy Akin
August 15 is the solemnity of the Assumption of Mary. In the United States, it is a holy day of obligation (in years when it does not fall on a Monday). What is the Assumption of Mary, how did it come to be defined, and what relevance does it have for our lives? Here are 12 things to know and share...

Conspiracy theories are not as harmless as they sound...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
It’s easy to dismiss conspiracy theorists as your crazy uncle. You know... listen to them rattling on about false flags, fake moon landings, lizard people and so forth...you listen with mild interest, nod and smile then chuckle and change the subject. But what if conspiracy theories are actually not the harmless eccentricities of people with a screw loose and too much time on their hands...


There’s something about the Jeffrey Epstein story that’s just out of the pit of hell...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
I thought that before he apparently killed himself while being held in federal custody. I became more convicted of that as the Saturday-morning news broke and it seemed to be the topic of every conversation, nearly impossible not to comment on. Conspiracy theories, as we well know, filled social media and conversations everywhere...

The battle is engaged — choose your sides!...
Msgr. Charles Pope
The readings this Sunday speak of a great cosmic battle that is taking place all around us. In the Gospel, Jesus speaks of it vividly and of his own mission to engage our ancient foe and to gather God’s elect back from the enslaving clutches of Satan, who was a murderer and a liar from the beginning (cf John 8:44). As Jesus approaches Jerusalem for the final time...

5 must-have school supplies to keep kids on the path to Heaven...
Mary Jo Gerd
It’s that time again when moms and dads across this great land finish checking off a mile-long list of obscure, annoyingly specific school supplies. We scour the internet, traipse through aisle after aisle of every big box store and office supply emporium around, trying to find the correct color, brand, and amount, at the right price...


Apologetics vs. evangelization? Argument and witness for the sake of others...
Jeff Mirus
The purpose of evangelization is to make Christ and the Church known to others so that they might receive the gift of faith and choose to convert to Christianity. It is a work accomplished in close collaboration with the Holy Spirit. The purpose of apologetics, on the other hand, is to clear away obstacles to faith by demonstrating that the claims about Christ...


Heroism and priesthood, Dachau and Amazonia...
George Weigel
In late June, I visited the concentration camp at Dachau, located in a wooded suburb a few miles from downtown Munich. The camp site struck me as rather too neat: virtually all of the huts in which hundreds of thousands of prisoners lived, starved, and died are gone, and the atmosphere, despite a blistering hot afternoon, was antiseptic...

Liberal white Catholic parish vs. new conservative black priest = clumsy Oregonian story...
Julia Duin
I attended college in southwest Portland; my first newspaper reporting job was just south of town; I have multiple friends in the area and my brother was an Oregonian reporter for 36 years. In other words, I know a thing or two about the area, its people and the local media. Religion coverage at the Oregonian has had some definite highs and lows in past decades...
