Carmelite Friends of Pope Francis in Spain to Leave Convent After 400 Years


‘Brethren, What Shall We Do?’...
Raymond Cardinal Burke
The seed of Christ’s life planted in your souls at baptism is meant to flower in the gift of your entire being to Him through your vocation in life, whether it be to the conjugal life of marriage, to the dedicated single life, to the consecrated life, or to the priesthood. The daily conversion to Christ which leads, in adulthood, to the knowledge and embrace of your vocation with a faithful, generous, and pure heart...


The Hard Reality of Disagreement in Marriage...
John Cuddeback
Open disagreement between spouses, or even just not seeing eye to eye, can be very painful. It is also quite common. Central to the art of marriage is to be able to accept this while also addressing it. Experience shows that it is to be expected. To some extent then, disagreement need not mean that anything has gone wrong...


120 years ago, divers discovered a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera. Hidden inside was an ancient ‘computer’ that simply shouldn't exist...


‘The Trinity Is the Source of Mercy’: Vatican Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith Recognizes ‘Trinity Fount of Mercy’ Messages...


The rumors about this new suppression of the TLM? Stay tuned...
Phil Lawler
For the past several weeks a rumor has been circulating that the Vatican will issue new restrictions on the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass (TLM). We could not confirm those rumors. But several ordinarily reliable journalists insisted that the reports were true: that the document had been prepared, and only awaited final approval and release.


Was the National Eucharistic Congress a ‘revival’?


What just happened in Indianapolis is going to transform the entire Church in the United States...
Marcel LeJeune
The National Eucharistic Congress (NEC) is going to be the seed planted, which I believe will grow and ultimately bear untold fruit. This fruit will ultimately transform the Catholic Church from a Church of decline, maintenance, and lukewarmness into a unified Eucharistic Church on mission. When I left the National Eucharistic Congress, I flew to South Dakota...

Philosopher David Solomon Enters the Catholic Church...
Christopher Kaczor
David played an indispensable role at Notre Dame over the course of his long career, especially as a mentor and dissertation director. He directed more than forty dissertations, many related to virtue ethics. His influence as a teacher and mentor was vast and deep on me and so many others. I was especially grateful that he took me under his wing while I was a graduate student at Notre Dame...


The National Eucharistic Congress Provided a Reprieve and a Chance for Catholics to See Politics Differently...


California runs roughshod over parents’ rights, allowing public school officials alone to direct the lives of their children...


Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin Visits War-Torn Ukraine...


God, Providence and the Trump Bullet...
Terry Mattingly
I don’t have solid poll data backing me up on the following. But, in my experience, if you walk up to church-going, scripture-quoting evangelical Protestants and Pentecostals and say that you are trying to think of a Bible verse defined by “6:11” many, if not most, will say, “You mean Ephesians 6:11?”


This Sunday, Walk Tall in the Dark Valley — Jesus Is At Your Side...
Tom Hoopes
It’s providential that as Catholics flock to Indianapolis for the first National Eucharistic Congress in the United States in 83 years, the Church offers the readings for the 16th Sunday or Ordinary Time, Year B.The readings offer enormous hope, but it’s Christian hope — that means that the hope for peace is available to anyone willing to take up Christ’s offer, with its cross, and follow.

J.D. Vance is a Catholic ‘post-liberal.’ Here’s what that means — and why it matters...
Jonathan Liedl
J.D. Vance is an election away from becoming the first Catholic vice president from the Republican Party. But the Ohio senator, who is running alongside Donald Trump on the GOP ticket, is not your typical Catholic conservative — at least not the kind that has been the norm in American politics over the past half-century.


The Congress, the Olympics, and Cocaine Sharks...
J.D. Flynn
Today is the 16th Wednesday in Ordinary Time, and you’re reading The Tuesday Pillar Post. If you’re not sure why you’re reading The Tuesday Pillar Post on Wednesday, well, I sent you a note about it yesterday. But the long and short of it is that Ed’s on vacation this week, I’ll be on vacation next week, and so we’re doing things a bit differently to adjust to being short-staffed...


God’s Providential Plan for Us Embraces Everything We Do — Even Politics...
Russell Shaw
A chorus of populist theologizing greeted the attempted assassination of Donald Trump. Much of it was along the lines of “Considering that the shot missed killing him by only a couple of inches, God must have been looking out for him.” I fully agree. God certainly was looking out for the former president. So what else might we say about what happened? Although pushing too hard to explain God’s ways can be presumptuous...


Here’s the Early 20th-Century Catholic Modernist Crisis in a Nutshell...


Newly opened Vatican archives shed light on Maciel and Legionaries of Christ; Pius XII was planning crackdown before 1958 death...

Bread Left Over: A Reflection on the Seventeenth Sunday in Ordinary Time...
Scott Hahn
Today’s liturgy brings together several strands of Old Testament expectation to reveal Jesus as Israel’s promised Messiah and King, the Lord who comes to feed His people. Notice the parallels between today’s Gospel and First Reading. Both Elisha and Jesus face a crowd of hungry people with only a few “barley” loaves. We hear similar words about how impossible it will be to feed the crowd with so little...


National Eucharistic Congress Ends With Prayer for ‘New Pentecost’ for U.S. Church...


The Knights Got It Right With Marko Rupnik’s Art...
Shannon Mullen
The opaque fabric will rest on the chapel walls of the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C., like a dressing on a wound. It’s a fitting image, since the artwork beneath that material has, for many, become a symbol of grave harm — in what ought to be places of hope and healing. The announcement July 11 that the Knights of Columbus will, for the time being...


Was St. Mary Magdalene a Former Prostitute?
Clement Harrold
If anything can rightly be said about St. Mary Magdalene, it is that she remains a mysterious and oftentimes elusive figure. Over the centuries, her identity has been debated and disputed endlessly, with the result that today many Catholics are left feeling very confused. What exactly do we know about her on the basis of the Gospels? And was she a reformed prostitute?


What to Do When Catholic Teaching Brings Marital Tension...
E. Christian Brugger
The moral norms protecting the marriage bed are not “rules” created by the Church, but truths that we discover by attending to the natural law, which is inscribed on our hearts and has God as its author. It is important to understand that the Church does not legislate morality. Rather, the Church guards it and faithfully hands it on so that men and women in every generation will be able to make choices that lead to authentic human freedom and fulfillment.
