Peter’s Pence Donations Fell by Around 15% in 2021, Says Vatican


“The first thing you can always do is thank God” [must-watch video]...
Tom Neal
“I can write no more. All that I have written seems like straw,” said St. Thomas Aquinas to his stenographer after having a mystical experience, only weeks before his death. When I post these videos, I feel I have surpassed any words I could ever conjure here. St. Thomas and I are on the same page.


A shelved USCCB doc, ‘ad orientem,’ and offended dignity...
Ed Condon
Happy feast of the Angelic Doctor to all our Dominican friends. St. Thomas is, of course, one of the great minds of the Church. The Thomistic Summa, or the odd rogue volume from it, is one of the truly indispensable pieces of Catholic interior decor. Though, in an illustration of the law of inverse relevance, usually the more prominently his work is displayed on a home’s book shelves...


Why Catholics believe in the Real Presence, beautifully explained in infographics...


4 questions about your worldview: Why is there something rather than nothing? What's gone wrong in the world? Is there any hope? Where is all this headed?


Don’t accuse pro-lifers of ignoring women’s health just because we are opposed to killing babies in the womb. That’s just foolishness...
Rick Becker
The other day, I posted a short piece by Patrick Kelly from the Knights of Columbus that appeared in the Wall Street Journal. The piece was timed to coincide with weekend Roe v. Wade commemorations, and it celebrated the magnificent contributions pregnancy resource centers have made toward promoting life and supporting pregnant women over the years – a compassionate...


Science confirms something the saints have always known: Reading books (not the internet) will help you to pray...
Jason Craig
It is fully accepted that junk food tastes good but isn’t good. Its bodily effects may teeter into immorality when we consider how it harms our health, and how preserving our health for the sake of others is no small matter. Fat fathers (and I’m not lightweight here) deal with that nagging realization that if they were to face death due to being overweight it would not be light on their conscience – especially if they could have just cut out the junk and live longer...


Milwaukee’s Gender Theory Document Receives High Praise for Pastoral Tone and Clarity...


The ‘Game of Thrones’ history of the papacy...


Living in times you did not choose...
John Cuddeback
I have seen a lot of suffering lately. It seems to be springing up all around me, including in people very dear to me. There are diverse causes, and to some extent it doesn’t really matter what they are. Yes, some of the suffering has been preventable—either by the people themselves, or by others. But much of it, like the times in which we live...


‘Shedding their blood’ — The popes, Ukraine and Russia...


Russia, Ukraine, and moral reckoning...
George Weigel
There have been vast improvements in the techniques and technology of filmmaking since 1961, when Stanley Kramer made Judgment at Nuremberg. But it’s difficult to imagine any cast today improving on the extraordinary performances of Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Maximilian Schell, Marlene Dietrich, Richard Widmark, Judy Garland and Montgomery Clift in that gripping courtroom drama...


‘It’s like he came back to me’ — World War II letter found in USPS facility, delivered 76 years after being sent...


20 years after the clergy sex-abuse scandal erupted, reparation and rectification continues...
Fr. Roger Landry
As we mark the 20th anniversary of the beginning of the toxic avalanche of revelations about decades of clergy sexual abuse of minors in Boston and beyond, two headlines are clear. The first is the unfathomable scope of what had happened and remained hidden prior to that apocalypse: tens of thousands of victims, thousands of clerical molesters...


Here are three underappreciated acclamations of Eucharistic piety...


To tell the Catholic story this week, you need both Munich and Mustafa...


On the wonder of the Word of God...


What is Christian joy, and how can it be yours?

Backs to the wall: Can bishops ban ‘ad orientem’?


3 examples of the insanity and incoherence of ‘gender identity’...
Amy Welborn
TGIT. Well, not thank goodness, but yes, because apparently every freaking day is Transday. If you have been reading me on this for a while, you know that one of the primary lenses through which I see this issue, aside from the basic one of...uh, no, you can’t change sex, idiots, is in terms of the impact on and reflection of the experiences of women and girls...


This resolution is bold and hard to keep, but it will change your life. What is it? Resolve to become God...


Orcas found to kill blue whales, the largest animals on Earth, for the first time...


A restaurant in D.C. barred a pro-life group. Here’s why that shouldn’t shock or offend us...
David Mills
You’d think they’d be OK. Demanding action on climate change, speaking against systemic racism, advocating expanded health care, rejecting the death penalty, upholding universal human rights — they’re Democratic down the line. Except for this one thing. One deviation that apparently means everything to mainstream liberals...


Ecclesiastical newspeak and the hatred of Catholic tradition...


I pray that I will stop listening whenever it is time to preach Christ and Him crucified...
Jeff Mirus
Sorry, my cork has just popped — after reading Pope Francis’ insistence that we “learn to listen” in his statement for World Communications Day. My cork has popped because Pope Francis himself has never given the slightest evidence of listening to those throughout the Church who have pleaded and prayed that he would help the Church to combat the infection of worldly values in her highest offices...


This town in southern Spain has appeared in ‘The Good, the Bad and the Ugly’ and 170 other movie Westerns...


Driving the Dempster Highway, Canada’s toughest road...


U.S. Seminaries Grapple With Secret Transgender Applicants, Falsified Sacramental Records...


‘A Direct Attack’: Knights of Malta Delegate Locked out of Order’s Constitutional Committee...


Episcopal beats, a papal “error,” and praying for peace...


The conversion of St. Paul...
John Grondelski
If anybody wonders how much Christianity has shaped our culture, just consider the phrase about “being knocked off your high horse.” It means that somebody who was acting haughtily, among the high and mighty, found himself dethroned from that position. One source suggests that the phrase dates, at least in English, from the late 14th century...


NYC Pro-Abortion Activists Curse at Churchgoers, Beam ‘God Loves Abortion’ Onto St. Patrick's Cathedral...


Pope Francis was right about pets and kids...


Benedict XVI Confirms He Attended Disputed 1980 Meeting in Munich...


God has an announcement to make: The days of exile are over!...
Tom Hoopes
The days of waiting are done. He is here, among us, ready to do the things he promised he would do — mighty deeds he will do for us and through us. Sunday’s Gospel reading is a supreme moment in human history, and the Church gives us a huge hint as to how we should receive it. Jesus, the incarnate God, bursts onto the world stage in a number of dramatic entrances...
