Pope's Sunday Angelus: God is faithful – trust him and don't worry


The priests who sacrificed their lives for their daughters...


Pope Francis helps SSPX take over church, complex, in heart of Rome...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
Il Foglio today as a story about how Pope Francis was a decisive factor in handing over a neo-Gothic church in the center of Rome, Santa Maria Immacolata all’Esquilino, to the SSPX. It is going to be a center for studies and, perhaps, their HQ. It is a pretty large complex.


Suppressing Jesuits, suppressing Jesus: Fr. Sosa’s surprising words on Christ’s own words...


Dear converts: How did you deal with impatience while waiting to become Catholic?


Marriage prep should be more than just a few courses, Pope tells priests...


No, Pope Francis did not say it's better to be an atheist than a bad Catholic...


What being a country Catholic is really like...
Jason Craig
Humanity is a part of nature, we are nature’s stewards, and living in close proximity is living in the most “normal” of settings. As G.K. Chesterton once noted, the city is the only habitat where people have to leave (i.e. visit the countryside) to have a retreat. Living close to it helps us to see and feel our relation to it...

It is sometimes necessary to risk giving offense...


Abbey and Trappist beers are not the same, don’t taste the same, and are not “kinds” of beer...


6 reasons why Bl. Columba Marmion is such an important figure for our times...
R. Jared Staudt
Fr. Aidan Nichols in his book, Christendom Awake, rightly points out that we have lost the cultural foundation of the spiritual life. In the modern world, God is perceived as absent and there is an intense focus on the individual. Nonetheless, he insightfully recognized the emergence of a new spirituality witnessed by the likes of St...


Do our faces reflect the divine signature of Christ?


Vatican to crack down on illegal sale of papal symbols, coats of arms...


Where you should start looking for your lost keys...


I’m convinced that we need good arguments, but I’m even more convinced that we need saints...
Bishop Robert Barron
Anyone even vaguely acquainted with my work knows that I advocate vigorous argument on behalf of religious truth. I have long called for a revival in what is classically known as apologetics, the defense of the claims of faith against skeptical opponents. And I have repeatedly weighed in against a dumbed-down Catholicism. Also, I have...

The whole world is more Catholic than you think...
John Clark
The world is Catholic. All of it. When I was asked to write an online world geography course two years ago, I wondered if I were the right man for the job. After all, I rarely travel more than 100 miles from my home; the only foreign country I have ever been to is Canada, and I haven’t even been there for over 30 years. But I’ve learned a lot since I started writing...


The Martyrs of Damascus of 1860 knew the difference between heroic and casual Catholics...
Rick Becker
“The days in which we live now require heroic Catholicism, not casual Catholicism,” declared Peoria Bishop Daniel Jenky in 2012. “We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead be Catholics by conviction.” This is especially the case when religious tolerance is lacking and when faithfulness to Christ can – and often does – lead to death...


How one soldier used beer to fight off 6,000 Chinese Communist troops...


What does it mean to be salted with fire?
Msgr. Charles Pope
To apply the image of salt to the Christian life, we should see that the Christian is charged with purifying, sanctifying, and preserving this wounded and decaying world by being salt to it. The Christian is called to bring flavor to life in a world that is so often filled with despair and meaninglessness. With that background...

Social media is slowly driving Americans insane...


The Modesto Statement: Playing politics, bishops are conned again...
Phil Lawler
The statements adopted by the First US Regional Meeting of Popular Movements are, for the most part, fairly predictable leftist boilerplate: a condemnation of President Trump, a focus on the evils of racism and exploitation, a claim that the few are growing rich on the suffering of the many. Nothing that we haven’t heard before...

Promoting Christian religious freedom, to the exclusion of others, could end up harming Christians...
Daniel Philpott
Nearly 3/4 of the world’s population lives in a country where religious freedom is strongly curtailed, and Christians suffer persecution and discrimination more than people of any other faith. The advocacy group Open Doorsreports that persecution only increased in 2016, when some 90,000 Christians were killed for their faith and some 215 million Christians faced persecution...

Attention New York Times copy desk: It's time to buy more reference Bibles (and use them)...
Terry Mattingly
Truth be told, the Bible is a very complicated book. It also doesn't help that there are many different versions of it. Why bring this up? Well, it's time to look at another error abut the Bible found in a story published in The New York Times. Another error? Click here for some background. This one isn't quite as spectacular as the famous case in which the Gray Lady published a piece on tourism in Jerusalem that originally contained this rather infamous sentence...
