The Atlantic slips — somehow — inside the mind of Benedict XVI...
Terry Mattingly
During the annual pre-Easter season of snarky or mildly negative religion stories, I think that I received more personal emails about the Pope Benedict XVI vs. Pope Francis story in The Atlantic than any other item (even more than the Mrs. Jesus media blitz, if you can believe that).


5 things you didn't know about Easter...
Taylor Marshall
Despite what the “experts” in Time, Newsweek, and the History Channel say, Easter was not a pagan holiday baptized by the Catholic Church. Also, according to Saint Thomas Aquinas, the priest in the old Latin Mass turns around and faces the people in the pews five times. Why five times?

It is fitting to canonize John XXIII and John Paul II as the twin bookends of the Second Vatican Council...
George Weigel
Pope Francis’s bold decisions to canonize Blessed John XXIII without the normal post-beatification miracle, and to link Good Pope John’s canonization ceremony to that of Blessed John Paul II, just may help re-orient Catholic thinking about modern Catholic history. For what Francis is suggesting, I think...


The Catholic Church can’t win a popularity contest. She never will...
Anthony Esolen
A few weeks ago, a Catholic priest caused quite a stir in one of our local diocesan high schools. He spoke the truth about sex. Pause here to sigh, and to wish that our heresies were more interesting. Some of the parents and students objected. They did not say...

Coptic priest named personal secretary to Pope Francis...
Andrea Gagliarducci
Msgr. Yoannis Lahzi Gaid, a priest of the Coptic Patriarchate of Alexandria, has been made second personal secretary to Pope Francis. The position is among the Pope’s closest collaborators, and this marks the first time that an Eastern Catholic priest has been appointed to the position. The vacancy filled by Msgr.

Alabama Supreme Court: Unborn child has ‘inalienable’ right to life ‘at all stages of development’


Cutting through the confusion in the Telegraph story about Pope Francis and divorce/remarriage...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
Here is the big problem at the core of this article. It is true that a "divorcee" can receive Communion. In the last quote, that is the main element to attend to. The problem enters when you add "remarried" to "divorcee". Get it? So what's going on? If the Pope called...


The bells draw me back...
Sarah Reinhard
Bells calling you to prayer sure seemed like a good idea. So good, in fact, that I’ve had my phone set to remind me for a couple of years. It’s a ringtone I’ve learned to explain in different ways. “Oh, it must be time to think about dinner!” “Ah, yes, this is what we work-at-home moms do, lest we lose track of time!


The latest salvo in the push for legalizing euthanasia is to kill kids...
Rebecca Hamilton
What was once supposed to be all about putting down people who were suffering horribly and in the last stages of terminal illness and who requested their own death has now become killing people who can’t consent and are nowhere near dying. It has evidently occurred to a few people in America that we’ve got an euthanasia gap.


Detroit-Area priest indicted on theft charges; could face up to 20 years in prison...
Kathy Schiffer
A five-count indictment was issued today by U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade’s office in the theft investigation of Rev. Edward Belczak, former pastor of St. Thomas More Catholic Church in Troy, Michigan. Father Belczak and his parish administrator, Janice Verschuren, have been accused of stealing nearly $700,000 from parish funds...


You're so touchy, you probably think this post is about you...
Matt Archbold
Who'd have thought that that a little thing like the internet could transform the greatest country in the history of the world into an army of 24-7 perpetual rage monkeys? Well, it has. Everyone's offended. All the time. The level of discourse in this country has devolved into a combox discussion.


We all want to protect babies, but this new law in Tennessee is the exact wrong way to go about it...
Simcha Fisher
Tennessee is waiting to see if its governor will sign a law which would hold pregnant women criminally accountable for drug use. If a baby is harmed by his mother's drug use, then under this law, the mother may be charged with criminal assault, with a penalty of up to 15 years in prison. Pro-lifers.

Did Pope Francis tell a divorced and civilly remarried woman she could receive Holy Communion?
Jimmy Akin
According to the press accounts, an Argentine woman named Jaqui Lisbona wrote Pope Francis expressing her concern about not being able to receive Communion due to being civilly remarried following a divorce. Her current marriage has lasted 19 years and resulted in two children. Pope Francis then called her, told her that the subject was under study at the Vatican...
