San Francisco Archbishop Cordileone Bars Nancy Pelosi From Receiving Communion Over Her ‘Advocacy for the Legitimacy of Abortion’


Archbishop Cordileone teaches Pelosi and the world: If abortion is not wrong, then nothing is wrong...
Regis Martin
When Lady Astor first went to the Soviet Union back in 1931 in the hope of meeting Josef Stalin, she committed a cardinal breach of protocol by asking the dictator, “When are you going to stop killing people?” A perilous question, one would think, to put to someone who already had enough blood on his hands to rival Attila the Hun...


Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Communion Ban: 5 Key Takeaways...


Goodbye (Hotel) Columbus — hello to Bill Gates’ Four Seasons chain?
Edward Pentin
The Order of the Holy Sepulchre has said it is still considering which company to choose to run a hotel in a renaissance-era building it owns just outside St. Peter’s Square, casting doubts over Italian media reports that it had decided to give the contract to a luxury hotel chain majority-owned by the American billionaire Bill Gates...


Roe v. Wade was never a ‘law’ in the first place...
John Clark
“Roe v. Wade is the law of the land.” This phrase has been uttered millions of times since Jan. 22, 1973. Whether they want Roe upheld or struck down, Americans largely agree with that assertion. Problem is, the statement is 100% wrong. Roe was not law in 1973. It is not law now. Judge Harry Blackmun’s majority decision in Roe v...

The power of the new feminist fairytale is highly compelling, but it comes at a cost...
Carrie Gress
Fairytales have been told across cultures and continents for millennia. More than simply an entertaining story, fairytales are a culture’s vehicle to share its values and underscore its most prized virtues. We know many of their familiar themes and patterns, having heard them since early childhood. One recurring fairytale plot is the evil queen or matriarch...


Here is something about which a husband (and wife) can be intentional, to do marriage more fully...
John Cuddeback
There is a beautiful phenomenon especially noticeable in some couples. Upon seeing one spouse you immediately think of the other. Somehow, where there is one there is also the other. This calls for a closer consideration. There is an objective spousal bond constituted by the marriage vows. Once formed, this bond transcends how the spouses happen to feel or act at any given time...

Take a lesson from the early Christians: It is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the Kingdom of God...
Msgr. Charles Pope
The first reading from Sunday Mass this week (5th Sunday of Easter) is very Catholic, and it’s too informative to just pass by. It presents a Church as rather highly organized and possessed of some the structures we know today in full form. Granted, some of these structures are in seminal (seed) form, but the are there. One can detect qualities of the original kerygma that are at variance with what some modern thinkers declare should be the methodology of the Church...


Do not underestimate a person’s need for spiritual healing when proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ...
Marlon De La Torre
The sincerity of his eyes offered a striking glimpse into the pain he had endured as a child. Left with spiritual scars and wounds that can only be described as demoralizing to any child who experiences a life of abuse regardless of the matter and form, there was still much left to address after I first met this particular gentleman...

The reactions to Cardinal Zen’s arrest were notable — and for different reasons...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
In the 10 days since Cardinal Joseph Zen was arrested in Hong Kong, interrogated for hours and then released on bail, pending charges, there have been a variety of reactions — on the global scale and my own. The Holy See Press Office noted the arrest of Cardinal Zen with “extreme attention.” The secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin...


Sigrid Undset saw modern man’s false hope, and became a Catholic...
David Mills
It’s a “This, not that” kind of convert story. Sigrid Undset entered the Church in 1924, having already become famous for the novel Kristin Lavransdatter, a profoundly Catholic story set in medieval Norway. She received the Nobel Prize in literature four years later. She told the story in an essay titled “Beyond Human Limitations...

We need a new Pentecost. Remember that. Give your lives to that...
Archbishop Charles Chaput
I’ve been retired now for two years. Retirement gives you a lot of time to think. And lately I’ve been thinking that if an Oscar were given each year for “Best Catholic Performance in the Role of a Reformation Protestant,” half the Catholics in Congress, not to mention the White House, would qualify. I’m overstating things...


Why it’s so difficult to figure out what the Vatican thinks about Ukraine...
John Allen
Next Tuesday will mark three months of war in Ukraine. Many things remain unclear about the conflict, perhaps chief among them what Russian President Vladimir Putin’s endgame may be. In Catholic terms, however, the great unknown at the three-month mark is what, exactly, Pope Francis and his Vatican team make of the situation...

40 years before Fatima, Our Lady appeared in Poland...
John Grondelski
The shrine of the Mother of God of Gietrzwałd (GIETCH-vald) is about 135 miles north of Warsaw. It marks the one site in Poland where the Church has approved an apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Our Lady appeared in Gietrzwałd from June 27 to Sept. 16, 1877. Two Polish peasant girls testified to seeing her: 13-year-old Justyna Szafryńska...

7 things you should know about St. Titus Brandsma...
Kathy Schiffer
The miracle for his canonization involved a fellow Carmelite. When Florida Carmelite Father Michael Driscoll received a diagnosis of stage-4 melanoma in 2004, he knew where to turn: He began praying for the intercession of Blessed Titus Brandsma, who had been martyred in the Nazi concentration camp at Dachau. A fellow priest gave Father Driscoll a second-class relic...

Michael Warsaw
In the wake of the unconscionable leaking of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s draft decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade, the response from pro-abortion-rights politicians and their supporters has been deplorable. President Joe Biden’s words and actions have been particularly disturbing, given the office that our nation’s so-called “devout Catholic” president occupies and his frequent public claims to be deeply engaged with his Catholic faith...
