Pope Francis breaks Vatican convention, shakes up CDW with Madrid and Valencia appointments...


What did the Pope mean by "sins against unity"?
Simcha Fisher
Dorothy Day saidthat we only love God as much as we love the person we love the least. This means that it doesn't matter if we happen to enjoy being with a certain person, or if even the thought of him makes us break out in angry blotches: we are to treat him with love -- to behave generously with him, and to leave the personal judgments of his soul up to God...

The Holy Bible is packed with tips for designing houses of God...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
God is not “the Great Architect,” and he doesn’t deal in blueprints and building committees, but did you know God told us how to build a church? It’s in the Bible. If we believe the sacred Scriptures are the inspired word of God...


Abortion hurts women and robs men of their fatherhood...
Katrina Fernandez
Once I saw a bumper sticker, “Having an abortion doesn’t make you un-pregnant. It makes you the mother of a dead baby.” The same could be said for a father whose child has been aborted. Little attention is given to men when the topic of abortion is raised. Many believe since men don’t have a uterus they don’t have the right to an opinion on the matter.


People need people, as seen at the beach...
Msgr. Charles Pope
I spent a few days at Bethany Beach (in Delaware) this week with four other priests, thanks to the loan of a house from some very generous lay people. In Washington we speak of going to the beach. But in nearby Baltimore they say, “We’re goin’ down-e-ocean.” I think in New Jersey they call it “going down the shore,” as in the Jersey shore.

Western elites still struggling to see the suffering Eastern Church...
Terry Mattingly
At first glance, there was a bizarre gap in the proclamation Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi issued as his forces rolled to victory after victory in their rush to rebuild a caliphate in Iraq, Syria and beyond. The modern world, he said, in a July 1 statement circulated on Twitter, has "been divided into two camps and two trenches...

What if Padre Pio and Niels Bohr had met?
Stacy Trasancos
I came across two unrelated stories and had a thought. What if St. Pio of Pietrelcina and Niels Bohr had met? The brilliant Thomistic philosopher, Mortimer J. Adler, told a brief story in his book, Angels and Us.


We are reeling from a moral revolution so destructive that we cannot understand its final implications...


The beauty of prayer, brought to life with 37 impressive photos...
Garrett Johnson
A great author once said – referring to a monk that was praying on his knees– “there is a dense presence. That man is never more a man than when he is prostrate and immobile…” Man is never more man than when he prays. Because prayer is, without a doubt, the activity that enables, accomplishes...

160 years after its original publication, Denzinger is still filling the void...
Russell Shaw
Heinrich Denzinger had a good idea. So good, in fact, that his idea is still going strong after 160 years. Father Denzinger, a German theologian of the 19th century, saw a need for a collection of creeds, ecumenical council decrees and teaching documents of popes to help theologians...


10 things to know and share about St. Augustine...
Jimmy Akin
St. Augustine was born in A.D. 354 in Thagaste, Numidia (modern day Souk Ahras, Algeria) into an upper-class family. His father—Patricius—was a pagan, though he converted to Christianity on his deathbed. His mother—St. Monica—was a Christian and raised Augustine in the faith, though he was not baptized until he was an adult.

Censoring the Little Flower: 5 things you didn't know about Saint Thérèse of Lisieux...
Joe Sparks
Once a story is told wrongly, it is hard to set right. In the case of the life of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, it is not so much that her story was wrongly told, as much as partially told. When, in 1898, her edited autobiography was published, it became an instant classic, captivating the imaginations of millions. Yet...

Bishop Paul Etienne
When the numerous day journeys into the diocese begin, it is a clear sign that summer has reached its end.
