Remembering lives of consequence...
George Weigel

A Catholic approach to diversity, equity and inclusion at Notre Dame: 10 Theses...
Daniel Philpott
Like many other universities, Notre Dame is promoting diversity, equity and inclusion in the aftermath of the killing of George Floyd on May 25, and of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and many others. Unlike most universities, Notre Dame is a Catholic university whose mission statement holds that “our Catholic character informs all our endeavors.” How can Notre Dame manifest its mission in these efforts?

‘London Has Fallen’ — How COVID-19 is changing the global city forever...
K.V. Turley

Catholic leaders have been falling prey to Silver Bullet Syndrome, but it doesn’t work. There are no silver bullets...
Marcel LeJeune
If I told you that you could transform your parish culture in 5 easy steps, would you want to know how to do it? Even if it was hard, would you be willing to work at it? Would you be willing to pay a steep price to access the steps? If you respond “yes”, then you have “Catholic Silver Bullet Syndrome”. We all want easy solutions to difficult problems, the problem is, that isn't how Catholic renewal works in real life.

The Pope’s acceptance of Cardinal Sarah’s resignation probably wasn’t adversarial, but it likely was political...
J.D. Flynn
For most Vatican observers, it was nearly a foregone conclusion that Cardinal Robert Sarah would not remain in the Vatican much beyond reaching retirement age. Therefore it was hardly a surprise that Pope Francis accepted the cardinal’s resignation from Vatican service on Saturday.

Fr. Raymond de Souza
At age 75 and in evident good health, Cardinal Robert Sarah likely has many fruitful years ahead of him, but his retirement as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments concludes one of the most remarkable series of assignments of any prelate in the Church.


“Somebody needs to be dad” — Some surprising things I learned from confidential talks with 28 bishops...
Francis X. Maier
For Catholics, the Second Vatican Council (1962–65) stands as the key event of the last 60 years. It renewed the Church’s self-understanding. It reimagined her relations with the Jewish people, other Christians, and the world. It also acknowledged in a new and powerful way the importance of the lay vocation.


The devil wants to isolate you from Christ by taking you through these three steps. Don’t let him...
Marlon De La Torre
The basic identity of civilization is built on an understanding of family and the community built from it. Man’s ability to know and understand his relationship with God stems from the very image and likeness God created in him. This means that our original identity with God was meant to be uncorrupted.
