Pope Francis Changes Rules for Major Superiors of Religious Orders


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...


Pope Francis: ‘St. Charles De Foucauld’s Spirituality Helped Me Through a Crisis’...


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...

The President’s recent remarks about abortion were a new low for Joe...
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...


Christ crucified in the modern world: The priest as sacrificial witness...
R. Jared Staudt
The evils of the 20th century hold a strange fascination. We cannot help but read and reread accounts of totalitarian oppression, such as Elie Wiesel’s Night, Anne Frank’s Diary, Viktor Frankl’s profound Man’s Search for Meaning, and Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s Gulag Archipelago. Something about these experiences, primarily relating to the horrors of Naziism and Communism...

What I saw when abortion enthusiasts blocked the front door of Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Lower Manhattan last Saturday ...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
“God killed his kid, why can’t I kill mine?” A woman in a white bathing suit, stuffed to simulate pregnancy, has a few baby dolls attached — they were the babies she was aborting, she told us. “Help me abort my babies.” After dancing and spinning on the grounds outside the church, she later complained, “My aborted babies are all wet...

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...

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...

J.D. Flynn
Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine began almost three months ago, on February 24. A lot has changed in the country since then - and in the world: Sweden and Finland are aiming to join NATO, inflation is climbing, and the war is expected to cause major food shortages in the places dependent on Ukraine’s grain exports - especially Africa and the Middle East...

This Sunday, don’t fall for good feelings. Only real love will ‘make all things new’...
Tom Hoopes
Jesus gives us a new commandment this Sunday, the Fifth Sunday of Easter Year C, but it is easy to get this new commandment wrong. It is the night before his death. Jesus washes his apostles’ feet — 12 apostles, 24 feet. Then he announces that one of them will betray him. It turns out to be Judas, who promptly walks out, dirtying the feet his best friend and Lord just cleaned...


A hostage, a resignation, and something completely different...
Ed Condon
And a reminder on this feast of Our Lady of Fatima that the bishops of the United States have asked all Catholics to pray the rosary today, given the strong possibility that we could soon see the overturn of Roe v Wade. As we’ve discussed before, the prospect that real limits on abortion could soon be possible in many states would be a serious win for the cause of life in this country...


A Catholic journalist is being canonized this weekend — Titus Brandsma, a new patron saint for Catholic journalism...
George Weigel
As of May 15, Catholic journalists around the world will be able to count one of their number among the saints, as Titus Brandsma, a Dutch Carmelite killed at the Dachau concentration camp in 1942, is canonized in St. Peter’s Square. At a moment when Catholic opinion journalism is in danger of falling victim to the ever-present dangers of trivialization...
