Pope Francis calls June 28 consistory to create 5 new cardinals from Mali, Spain, Sweden, Laos, El Salvador


Living the lessons of love: A homily for the 6th Sunday of Easter...
Msgr. Charles Pope
In the Gospel for today’s Mass, Jesus gives us three lessons on love meant to prepare us for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. They also go a long way in describing the normal Christian life. Too many Christians see the Faith more as a set of rules to keep than as a love that transforms—if we accept it. Let’s take a look at the revolutionary life of love and grace that the Lord is offering us in three stages: the power of love...

6th Sunday of Easter: We are simultaneously risen, rising, and about to rise...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
Allow me to digress a little about the concept of “memory”. St. Augustine of Hippo (430) makes a connection between recordatio and memoria in a letter to his childhood friend and fellow convert Nebridius (ep. 7). For Augustine, memory was the place of encounter between the self and God in what he calls beata vita, the “blessed life”...

In the Church’s eternal wisdom, the feasts of Easter and Pentecost fall around the start of baseball season. Some might be tempted to pass this off as “coincidence,” but I tend to favor providence in this matter. My favorite baseball memory occurred on June 10, 2005. The Cubs were playing the Red Sox and Greg Maddux took the mound against Bronson Arroyo...


Young people who support abortion? The problem might be in the imagination...
Jason Craig
The modern mind is sure that its conclusions and persuasions have been rigorously reasoned to, relying almost exclusively on science and statistics. It thinks it is thinking. This is obviously not true. Without the litany of examples, the sheer fact that today’s fashionable thinking directly contradicts universally held beliefs – truth perceived by men of varied and distant cultures and times – reveals that something isn’t quite right...

WYD Panama has a terrible, terrible logo. Take a look...
Simcha Fisher
What is a logo, anyway? You know what it is: It’s an image, often simple and stylised, used by a business or organisation. It’s supposed to be instantly recognisable, preferably eye-catching and memorable, and it’s supposed to convey what the business or organisation is about. Colour, font, and composition all contribute to the design...

What the bishops can learn from Hillary Clinton's arrogance...
George Weigel
Perhaps it was being “overcome with Paschal joy” (as the Prefaces for Easter put it). Maybe it was my guardian angel whispering in my ear. Perhaps I’m just getting older and thus less crotchety. But for a brief moment, at around 0730 EDT on the morning of May 3, I felt a blush of sympathy for Hillary Clinton for the first time in twenty-five years...


It's time to exercise the “mom brain”...
Susanna Spencer
I have made same the excuse again and again since I had my first baby, and I have heard other mothers do the same. I have mom brain. Maybe when I my kids are grown up I will read again. I just can’t think anymore. And sure there is evidence that mom brain is real, but it is no excuse to fail to form our minds and be fully flourishing human persons...

Another scarlet jolt: With firsts all around, Pope adds 5 more red hats...
Rocco Palmo
With the new additions, the electoral College will be restored to 121 members – one over the now-traditional limit of 120 set by Blessed Paul VI in 1975. Of the total group, 49 (40%) will have been elevated by Francis. Even for their nomination today, cardinals-designate don't enjoy their voting rights until their names are published within the Consistory itself...

SDG reviews ‘Alien: Covenant’...
Deacon Steven Greydanus
With Prometheus and now Alien: Covenant, Ridley Scott is pursuing three goals, none of them well. First, he’s out to restake his own claim to his great 1979 classic, salvaging it from the diminishing returns of various sequels and crossovers, not to mention spoofs, comic books, video games and who knows what all else. To succumb to a regrettable but practically inevitable coinage...

Does believing in the Creed invoke hostility?
Marlon De La Torre
Blessed Cardinal Newman once said “we can believe what we choose. We are answerable for what we choose to believe.” There has been a current trend by some within the Church to deem the Catechism of the Catholic Church as either too offensive, demeaning or that it simply invokes hostility by way of the language within the text...
