Deacon Steven Greydanus
Greater has three surprises, which is three more than most faith-based films, particularly of the inspirational sports-movie variety. First, while the film’s hero is the celebrated Arkansas Razorbacks offensive guard Brandon Burlsworth (Christopher Severio) — possibly the greatest walk-on player in college football history — the protagonist is not Brandon but his brother Marty...

Kathy Schiffer

The sisters, both nurse practitioners, were not shot; but authorities have not yet explained how they died. One was apparently a member of the Kentucky-based Sisters of Charity of Nazareth. The other belonged to the School Sisters of St...

Kathryn Jean Lopez
There’s a genocide of Christians going on in the world today, with ISIS rallying to “take down the cross,” according to its English-language magazine.

Msgr. Charles Pope

Lord, make me happy — but not yet...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
Sister Mary Lucy was a Poor Clare nun who suffered greatly. She lost her eyesight and had a degenerative bone disease which caused her spine to crumble. The doctors could do very little to help her. I used to visit her regularly, but never once heard her complain. Instead she had a huge radiant smile. I asked her, “Sister, do you ever feel angry at the Lord because you have lost your sight...

Carrie Gress
Amatriciana is the beloved signature sauce of the Italian town of Amatrice, which was razed in an earthquake on August 24. Restaurateurs throughout Italy are showing support for the people of Amatrice by donating 1 or 2 euros to Red Cross relief efforts for every Amatriciana dish sold. For those outside Italy, I offer the recipe below...
