Sand Creek, Wounded Knee, Roe v. Wade — Native Americans Resist Progressive Threat to Force Abortion Clinics on Indigenous Lands


“What is truth?” — 10 Catholic responses to pro-choice objections...
R. Jared Staudt
Truth has been eclipsed in our culture — this much should be obvious. We no longer accept even the most basic aspects of reality and refuse to affirm that we can even know them at all. Life, the most basic tenet of reality itself, has become a flashpoint in our flight from reality. In opposing the specious arguments of the pro-choice movement...

Virginia schools’ new rules to punish “misgendering” are designed to create compliant, fearful children...
Noelle Mering
The Fairfax County School Board recently approved a policy expanding punishment for students who misgender classmates. Pronouns that accord with reality now constitute “discriminatory harassment” and can result in weekslong suspension or even a referral to law enforcement. This decision is a harbinger of things to come and precedes an impending Biden administration regulatory proposal expanding the definition of sex discrimination to include sexual orientation and gender identity...

Initial impressions of ‘Desiderio Desideravi,’ Pope Francis’ new document on the Mass...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
After a year of barbed commentary directed at liturgical traditionalists from many quarters, the Holy Father’s apostolic letter Desiderio Desideravi, dated June 29 for the solemn Solemnity of Sts. Peter and Paul, takes a rather different tack, both in tone and substance. Desiderio Desideravi takes its title from the words of Jesus at the beginning of the Last Supper: “I have earnestly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer” (Luke 22:15)...


Dobbs, Roe and the vindication of American democracy...
George Weigel
Prior to June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court’s most important civil rights decision was handed down on May 17, 1954. Then, in Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, the Court declared racially segregated public facilities unconstitutional, effectively reversing its 1896 decision in Plessy v. Ferguson, which upheld state-mandated segregation laws...

Raising a child like the Little Prince...
John Cuddeback
A merchant is selling special pills—one pill will quench thirst for a whole week! A person will no longer need to find something to drink. “Why are you selling those?” asks the little prince. Answer: Experts say they will save us fifty-three minutes per week. “And what do I do with those fifty-three minutes?” “Anything you like...

Robert Reich dropped 7 old errors about human nature — only to replace them with new errors...
David Mills
He seems weirdly naive for a former cabinet member, professor at a prestigious university, and major public intellectual. Robert Reich admits that the world of the 21st century didn’t turn out the way he expected. What did Reich expect? He expected the world to get better. More peaceful. More cooperative. More democratic. Basically...


Four priests, one religious sister murdered in one week...
Inés San Martín
The past seven days were among the deadliest for Catholic priests and religious in recent years, with one violent murder every 33 hours. Just last Wednesday, June 22, Pope Francis condemned that week’s killing of two Jesuit priests in Mexico. By Sunday, June 26, the pontiff was once again lamenting the death of a religious, this time at the end of his weekly Angelus: Sister Luisa dell’Orto...

Have you have seen the logo for the 2025 Jubilee? It’s really something...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
You have seen the logo for the 2025 Jubilee? It’s really something. I can’t tell you what that makes me think of. A lot of people submitted designs. Giacomo Travisani is the fellow who designed it. His name is Giacomo Travisani. Someone today mentioned an additional fact about him, so I looked around. Same guy? I think it may be...


How debating Pentecostals led a Baptist mom to Catholicism...


Where have you gone, Jacques Maritain?
Daniel Philpott
On the sixth of the month, far-right agitators assaulted the national legislature, leaving several dead and many more wounded. The next month, amid a public debate so fractious as to elicit warnings of civil war, a group of Catholic philosophers signed a manifesto pleading for the common good and saying no to anti-democratic forces...

Vatican inconsistencies: A Tale of Two Bishops...
Edward Pentin
The contrasting recent handling by the Vatican of two bishops has highlighted concerns about discrepancies in the disciplining of bishops, with no explanation available why one of the two bishop was dismissed while the other has been allowed to remain in office. The two cases involve Bishop Daniel Fernández Torres of Arecibo, Puerto Rico...


Still we march! Thoughts on the overturn of Roe v. Wade...
Msgr. Charles Pope
I like many of you will always remember where I was when I heard that Roe v. Wade had been struck down. I was in Wichita, Kansas, preaching a priests retreat and preparing for Mass on the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Tears welled in my eyes as I ran to share the news with the bishop and priests. I have been marching in the March for life almost uninterruptedly since 1975...

Apostolic Letter ‘Desiderio desideravi,’ on the liturgical formation of the People of God...
Pope Francis
My dearest brothers and sisters, with this letter I desire to reach you all – after having written already only to the bishops after the publication of the Motu Proprio Traditionis custodes – and I write to share with you some reflections on the liturgy, a dimension fundamental for the life of the Church. The theme is vast and always deserves an attentive consideration in every one of its aspects...

The 10 commandments of reverencing the Holy Eucharist...
Msgr. Charles Mangan
To attend Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation. This serious obligation begins for children when they reach the “age of reason.” We adore the Eucharist by our full, active and conscious participation in the Mass. To prepare well for every Mass we attend. The holy sacrifice of the Mass is “Calvary perpetuated” because it is the representation of Christ’s sacrifice on Good Friday...


‘Roe v. Wade’ is still overturned, and other news too!...
J.D. Flynn
It’s no overstatement: Dobbs v. Jackson has begun a new chapter in American political life. What comes next, politically and culturally? I don’t know. Neither do you. Dobbs does not make abortion illegal across the United States; it localizes the issue to state legislatures — and eventually, to state judiciaries. Twenty states are unlikely to prohibit or strictly regulate abortion...
