The family is in jeopardy in unprecedented ways...
George Weigel
The Catholic love affair with the United States of America is heading into rough and uncharted waters – and not only in this 2016 election cycle, but for the foreseeable future. U.S. Catholics have, in a sense, been there and done that, given that the history of the Church in this country includes fending off anti-Catholic bigots like the 18th-century Know Nothing Party (about which 99% of Catholics today know nothing) and the late-19th century American Protective Association (another puzzler...


The amazing mystical visions received by Muslim converts to Christianity...
Brantly Millegan
Naeem Fazal was born and raised in Kuwait in a Muslim family. After the first Gulf War, his family emigrated to the US, where he was exposed to Christianity for the first time. Then, while in college, Jesus mystically entered his life: “I had a supernatural interaction one night in which I experienced Jesus in my room. That encounter forever shifted the course of my life...


The Holy Spirit gives you charisms to build up the Catholic Church...
Fr. Don Dietz
We need our merciful Father through His Child, our Jesus of Mary and Joseph, to breath anew His Breath in us brothers and sisters together and singly, to make us His family of friends to Their image and likeness. We need His Holy Breath and His charisms, our blessings directed to our brothers and sisters. We need His charisms of life/state and mission/office (ST II-II...


The Eight Beatitudes at the movies...
Fr. Victor Feltes
At the start of his Sermon on the Mount (in Matthew 5) Jesus lists qualities which describe the blessed in his Kingdom. These eight Beatitudes are models for living our lives. On the silver screen, the fictional characters in these eight classic films manifest the Beatitudes: Phil Connors in Groundhog Day: “Blessed are the poor in spirit...


Fr. Daniel Berrigan: A radical priest Neuhaus called “remarkable”...
Deacon Greg Kandra
Back in 1972, the poet laureate of Forest Hills, Paul Simon, wrote a song about two young guys who got into trouble and ended up in prison, “Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard.” He described what happened: “A radical priest come and get me released / and we was all on the cover of Newsweek.” The “radical priest” was a reference to one of the most complicated and controversial figures of the time...

Dear Priests: This is how to survive Mother’s Day on Sunday...
Simcha Fisher
I wish I had a dollar for every time I’ve said, “Quit telling priests what to do.” You guys are super busy and already working harder than anyone could reasonably expect. But I’ll give one of those imaginary dollars back today, because I’m going to tell you what to do this Sunday. Trust me, it’s for your own good. This Sunday is...

Pius XII gets hammered for actions for which Mannerheim rightly gets praised...
David Mills
He allied his country with Nazi Germany and never said a word to defend the Jews. His relations with Hitler have been described as “chummy,” and in appreciation for his alliance, Hitler gave him a Mercedes-Benz, which he accepted, as one writer put it, “graciously.” He spent his 75th birthday in a secret meeting with Hitler...


‘Captain America: Civil War’ is all good. Well, mostly good...
Steven Greydanus
Captain America: Civil War is a big ol’ slice of thick, cheesy, Chicago-style deep dish, heaped with absolutely all the toppings — and while as a New York boy I might prefer a more refined thin crust, there’s no point being a snob about these things. It’s all good. Well, mostly good. Civil War has nearly all the strengths of the best Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movies so far...


How the Leonine Prayers helped create the Vatican State and crushed the Soviet Union...


Now, here is a REAL religion...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
Having just returned from a fantastic parish pilgrimage to Poland, I’ve been busy catching up in the parish and at home. I’ve jumped back into the details of building a new church, organizing a growing parish, finishing our fundraising efforts and then dealing with family life on top. As a result I have not had the chance to blog very much...

Bl. Nunzio Sulprizio: The poor kid who could never catch a break...
Brian O'Neel
There almost was never a time when Bl. Nunzio Sulprizio’s life was not difficult. The blessed was born just after Easter on April 13, 1817, during a time of great famine in Pescosansonesco, a village in the province of Pescara, Italy, and he was named after his paternal grandfather. When the child was just three, his beloved father died...

The days are long but the years are short, and all things are passing away...
Jenny Uebbing
America has a political hangover this morning. And I probably would have been partaking in the social media grousing myself, had I not woken to a text message alerting me to a tragedy closer to home and far more important. A family we know is being asked to walk a way of the cross that takes my motherly breath away, and as I sat this morning...


What on earth is a Catholic to do this election cycle? First, don't despair...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
A lot of people went to sleep Tuesday night or woke up Wednesday morning wondering what to do. Neither presumptive candidate for the major political parties appears acceptable to many people of conscience. What this amounts to is a wake-up call and an opportunity to get serious about politics as a noble pursuit that requires loving devotion on every level...

7 things you may not know about Vivaldi...
Msgr. Charles Pope
One of my favorite composers is Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741). While I love his secular pieces (such as The Four Seasons), I am especially fond of his Church music. It is so light, bright, and tuneful! Vivaldi loved to go up and down the musical scale, varying the theme a half step at a time. Ah, Vivaldi, he’s right up there with Handel...
