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


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...


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...

Episcopal beats, a papal “error,” and praying for peace...
Ed Condon
This morning, the daily bollettino of Holy See Press Office included some news for New York, with the announcement that Pope Francis has appointed two new auxiliary bishops for the archdiocese, both native sons of the city. Both are priests currently serving as pastors in the archdiocese. Msgr. John Bonnici is a NAC graduate with a doctorate from the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for the Sciences of Marriage and the Family...


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...

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...


How to literally read Scripture literally...
Joe Heschmeyer
One of the most common questions about biblical interpretation is how much of the Bible ought to be taken “literally.” That’s a tricky question to answer, because the word literal actually has two distinct (but related) meanings. When the Catechism of the Catholic Church talks about the literal sense of Scripture, it’s referring to “the meaning conveyed by the words of Scripture and discovered by exegesis...


Sex, marriage and babies are now topics too hot for preachers to handle?

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...


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...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Let’s consider three rather humble but important moments that are often lost in the minds and hearts of the faithful – the Mystery of Faith, the Amen, and the Agnus Dei. They rise in importance because they are moments that belong especially to the faithful rather than the clergy. First, in the Ordinary Form of the Liturgy...


To tell the Catholic story this week, you need both Munich and Mustafa...
John Allen
Over the centuries, the Catholic Church often has led the pack in two distinct specialties: Breaking your heart, and then stitching it back together again with a fresh infusion of hope. This past week brought classic examples of both. Out of Munich, we got a report from a law firm commissioned by the archdiocese documenting almost 500 cases of clerical sexual abuse stretching over 74 years...


On the wonder of the Word of God...


What is Christian joy, and how can it be yours?
Fr. Victor Feltes
A subtle theme threads throughout this Sunday’s readings: the theme of joy. When the Jews return to Jerusalem from the Babylonian Exile their leaders read the Old Covenant to them. And the crowd weeps as the scrolls are read because they realize they have not been keeping God’s laws. But Nehemiah the governor, Ezra the priest...
