Body of Father Patrick Ryan, Tennessee Priest on Path to Canonization, Reburied in Knoxville Basilica


God sees all the beauty of the universe at a glance, but He didn’t die for the universe. He died for you...
Chris Stefanick
God sees all the beauty of the universe at a glance — the sun, the ocean, the stars, the sky. He made it all. But he didn’t die for a galaxy, or the clouds, or the whales, or the stars. He died for you. You capture his heart. You are the apple of his eye. You — not the world in general, but you. And at every Mass, the Body and Blood of Christ are still there for you — not just for the world in general, but for you.


Is Jesus your Savior or your friend?
Marlon De La Torre
Catholicism as a viable religion is an objective reality that owes its identity in the Trinity. More specifically, it is Jesus Christ who instituted the Catholic Church as His direct representation on earth to carry on His salvific mission. As a universal truth, Catholicism is a very important educational concept for anyone involved...

Forget self-appointed preachers and gurus — here are 5 authentic ways that you can know you have received your “daily Jesus”...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
In Sunday’s gospel Jesus declared himself to be the Bread of Life, and this image must be linked to the phrase in the Lord’s Prayer where we are told to ask for our daily bread. Therefore we can ask ourselves where and how we get our daily Jesus. There are plenty of preachers and teachers who may offer ways of getting your daily Jesus.


10 ways you might be letting the devil slip in without even realizing it...
Patti Armstrong
God is the ultimate power, so the devil need not be feared, but he should be always be avoided for our own spiritual well-being. Hearing people say, “It’s no big deal,” is music to the devil’s ears. He likes to work undercover to ensnare people in his traps. Here are 10 things considered harmless by many that are ways that the devil has slipped into the culture.


Life lessons from Simone Biles: Throw stones or give thanks?


MUST READ: When a priest is unchaste, his priestly work becomes barren. Our silence isn’t doing these men any favors anymore. The solution is simple...
Carrie Gress
The recent unsavory revelations about Msgr. Jeffery Burrill and his resignation as general secretary from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops have led to much hand wringing about privacy, tabloid tactics and distracting allegations, despite the legal avenues used to expose him. There seems to be precious little discussion about the spiritual cost to the Body of Christ...


How to measure success in a parish...
Marcel LeJeune
When I was in college, I took several semesters of archery. I loved shooting arrows at targets, but what ultimately won me over was the nature of archery; you immediately know how you are doing, based on where you hit the target. Still, there was one time that I hit the bulls eye and yet I scored a zero, because I was aiming at the wrong target...

The bishops, Donatism, and President Biden...
George Weigel
In an article first posted at Commonweal and republished on July 7 in La Croix International, Professor John Thiel of Fairfield University, while criticizing the U.S. bishops’ decision to prepare a teaching document on Eucharistic coherence and integrity in the Church, performed the not-inconsiderable feat of striking out four times (swinging).

To mark 800 years in Britain, four Dominicans are walking through southern England — send your prayer intentions and follow the pilgrimage here...
Fr. Samuel Burke
This year, the Order of Preachers is celebrating the 800th anniversary of the death of St. Dominic in Italy, and the arrival in 1221 of the Dominican Order in Great Britain. To mark the occasion, a group of British Dominicans are following the footsteps of their predecessors on a walking pilgrimage in England, starting at Ramsgate on Aug. 1 and arriving in Oxford on Aug. 15...


The Pope’s “August surprise” could be most counter-cultural stand of all...
John Allen
In American politics, the term “October surprise” refers to the possibility that an incumbent president trailing in the polls may use executive authority to try to shake up the race late in game. Going to war would be the classic scenario, but it could also be some major economic, social or foreign policy twist.


Exorcist Diary: Evil spirits thrive on anger, unforgiveness, arrogance, disobedience, self-hate and pervasive fear. Don’t feed the demons...
Msgr. Stephen Rossetti
We always have a few cases which go too slowly or are stalled. The Team faithfully prays with the afflicted person but progress is virtually nil. So, we know it’s time to discern: what are the demons feeding on? Demons especially thrive on anger, unforgiveness, arrogance and disobedience. As long as these are festering in the afflicted person’s heart, the demons are not going to leave...

The Pope’s motu proprio places a new burden on bishops — particularly on Cardinal Gregory...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
Being a bishop is not easy. Being the Pope’s man in Washington, D.C., is more difficult still. And the recent liturgical changes have added to the challenges. Just ask Cardinal Wilton Gregory, who in June took the lead in attempting to delay the U.S. bishops’ discussion of a document on the Holy Eucharist...


The Pillar stories do raise questions — but not about journalistic ethics...
Phil Lawler
Journalistic ethics: That’s not a topic often discussed by Catholic media outlets, and for two good reasons. First, most Catholic media outlets are heavily subsidized, and therefore reliant on the goodwill of their sponsors. A diocesan newspaper, for instance, is reporting on the institution that pays its bills. There’s a conflict of interest there—albeit one so obvious that it doesn’t really require disclosure.

Terry Mattingly
Truth be told, I am not prone to flashbacks — even though I did come of age in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Anyway, I had a big flashback recently while reading a very interesting New York Times feature that ran with this headline: “Facebook’s Next Target: The Religious Experience.” In this case, the subhead is also crucial...


Disney’s ‘Jungle Cruise’ is an underwhelming ride to nowhere...
Deacon Steven Greydanus
There’s a back story involving Spanish conquistadors cursed with immortality by wronged natives. A swaggering captain with a dark past who is both more and less than he seems. There’s magic involving the rays of the moon, but also a quest for a mythical source of life deep in the jungle and a magic MacGuffin that points the way. We have supernatural antagonists whose deteriorating bodies have assumed...
