Vatican releases itinerary for Pope Francis’s U.S. visit


Ticking time bomb: Why Obergefell is "Roe on steroids"...


Waiting to convert...
Richard Becker
Becoming a Catholic is a huge deal for evangelical Protestants, and it frequently leads to disrupted relationships – family, friends, co-workers, you name it. Nonetheless, once you’re convinced that the Catholicism is true, and you start craving the Sacraments, and it’s so hard to not receive the Eucharist, you’re raring to go – full speed ahead...


A scriptural guide for our troubled and confused times...
Msgr. Charles Pope
There’s an old hymn that says, “In times like these, you need a Savior, in times like these, you need an anchor. Be very sure, be very sure, Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.” And indeed, there are very few faithful Catholics who are not astonished and dismayed at the rapidity of decline into confusion (sexual and otherwise) of a culture we once described as Judeo-Christian...


Avila to Aspen (Day 27): We live in unsettled times, but have confidence in Christ...
Fr. John Hilton
I started in a little town called Mercer, in the North Woods area of Wisconsin. A lot of people come here on vacations from Green Bay, Chicago and Milwaukee, and you can see why. Beautiful trees, rolling countryside, gorgeous blue skies. We found some fire pits in the woods, so we might even start a campfire tonight...


We delude ourselves if we think we are expanding our freedom by driving the Faith into retreat...
Mark Shea
The mindset that puts no brake on the power of the strong over the weak is the root of slavery. It is the inevitable corollary of the destruction of the Christian tradition. Slavery is the normal room temperature state of fallen man. It took centuries for the Christian tradition to beat it back and the victory has always been tenuous and provisional...


U.S. Supreme Court upholds use of controversial lethal injection drug...


Pope officially paves the way for Saint Thérèse's parents to be canonized...


From despair to deliverance: The journey of Jairus...


Pope Francis on weapons: 12 things to know and share...
Jimmy Akin
Recently Pope Francis made some impromptu remarks about weapons manufacturers at a meeting with young people in Turin. These were poorly misreported in the press and have resulted in a number of questions being asked. First we will take a look at what he said and then look at some of the questions that have been asked. Here are 12 things to know and share...

The worst result of the SCOTUS marriage opinion won't be persecution...
Brantly Millegan
As everyone knows, the U.S. Supreme Court recently ruled gay marriage is a constitutionally protected right. Christians around the country have already lost jobs and businesses because they believe in traditional, one-man one-woman marriage, and many fear that this ruling will lead to more persecution. That may be so. But even if that does happen...

Everything is not fine...


Francis is not the only pope facing a divorce dilemma...
John Allen
As Pope Francis gears up for a showdown over divorce and remarriage at October’s Synod of Bishops, marking the latest chapter in a polarizing debate that’s left some Catholics delighted and others disenchanted, he can take consolation that he’s not the pope in the hottest water over the issue. The world’s other major Christian leader who holds the same title...


Ecco Papa: At long last, Francis' U.S. dance card...
Rocco Palmo
After a notably longer wait than usual, this morning the schedule for the Pope's late September swing through the Northeast was released by the Holy See and the USCCB with some 90 days to spare before the journey takes place. For the Vatican, the 22-27 September Stateside trek is the second leg of a tour that'll first see Francis spend four days in Cuba...


Legal marriage is not the endgame of the gay agenda. It never was. Moral approval is the endgame...


Pope's rules of the road to new metropolitans: "Teach prayer by praying, proclaim faith by believing"...


We are obliged to resist! “Clear and emphatic opposition is a duty”...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
In the wake of the June 26 U.S. Supreme Court opinion that legalized same-sex "marriage" throughout the United States, everyone should review the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s document from 2003, which is called Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons...


Pope's Sunday Angelus: "What is faith? Faith is to touch Jesus and draw saving grace from Him"...


John Kerry needs a lesson on anti-Christian persecution in Egypt...

Sights, sounds and stories from a five-country European speaking tour...
Dawn Eden
So much has happened since I last updated you on my life and apostolate! I returned June 12 from my three-week European speaking tour, and my heart is full of gratitude as I look back upon the wonderful people I encountered and the beautiful experiences I had speaking in five countries. Most of what I will share here are the public highlights; omitted are many of the friendships I made or renewed on this trip...


What's the best way to love those with same-sex attraction?


How do you convert your friends and family?
Greg Willits
Years ago I worked in the IT industry, leading teams to develop software systems, which gave me the awesome opportunity to work with a wide and diverse range of people. Around that same time (late 90’s/early 2000’s), I was experiencing a re-awakening of my faith, and an absolutely unquenchable desire to save souls for Jesus Christ...


The next step: Punishing those who wish to withhold cooperation from same-sex marriage...
Russell Shaw
Far from ending the conflict of moral and cultural values at the heart of the same-sex marriage debate, the Supreme Court’s June 26 decision declaring its discovery of a previously undiscovered constitutional right to same-sex marriage propels this struggle onto a broader front. Given the long-range goal of the ideology driving this movement...


Vatican panel recognizes Oklahoma priest as first possible U.S. martyr...


The marriage battle was lost in the culture long before it was lost in the courts...
George Weigel
The New Normal will not leave the Catholic Church alone. Like everyone else who contests the New Normal’s ideology of Anything Goes, the Catholic Church will be aggressively attacked for daring to oppose that ideology. So the Church must learn, fast, how to play good defense, defending the right of our people and our institutions to be themselves; it will do a service to America in the process...
