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


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.


4 Notable Christian Dimensions of the Trump Assassination Attempt...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
The attempted assassination of former president Donald Trump Saturday has far-reaching personal and political consequences. Many commentators took it as a worrying indicator of the state of U.S. culture, or at least political culture. Yet beyond the personal, political and cultural, there were also notable Christian dimensions to that terrible evening in Butler, Pennsylvania. Four are worth noting.

An attempted assassination, democracy, and the risk of civil war...
David Mills
“Do you think we’ll get into civil war?” he asked, a few hours after a twisted young man tried to kill Donald Trump. My late-thirty-something friends — he an admirer of RFK Jr. and she firmly on the left — were worried about their country. She said something about how divided Americans are and how easily people could be set against each other.

America’s Last Eucharistic Congress Was Held in 1941. Here’s What It Was Like...
Aaron Lambert
The year 1941 was quite a year in U.S. history. Franklin Delano Roosevelt was president. The average price of a new house was $4,075. Citizen Kane was released. World War II, the greatest global conflict the world has ever seen, was on the verge of breaking out. It also happens to be the last time the U.S. held a National Eucharistic Congress...


What’s the Vatican saying about alleged apparitions?
Luke Coppen
Since the Vatican unveiled a new streamlined process for evaluating alleged apparitions in May, a steady stream of rulings have followed. The judgments, issued by the Vatican’s doctrine office, are written in somewhat technical language and address supposed supernatural events that may be unfamiliar to English-speaking Catholics. Here’s a quick guide to the statements issued since the publication of the new norms...

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.


National Eucharistic Congress: ‘In the History of Christianity, You Can Never Have a Revival Without Repentance’...
Zelda Caldwell
In his keynote speech at the National Eucharistic Congress Thursday evening “revival session,” Father Mike Schmitz, host of the popular “Bible in a Year” podcast, used a word that one doesn’t hear very often these days. He called on the Catholics gathered in Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium to repent.


7 Verses Every Catholic Should Know...
John Bergsma
Here are seven Bible verses that prove that Catholicism is indeed biblical and even more biblically grounded than what some of our Protestant brethren initially think. We’ll break it down by looking at the context of the passage and the original translations. Some of the topics these verses cover are the meaning of “the church,” tradition vs. teaching, Sola Scriptura and the interpretation of the Scripture, the sacraments, Mary, and relics.

How to cultivate a Benedictine spirit for the summer...
David Deavel
The summer is now fully upon us. It is the time when many are traveling on vacation and taking part in “leisure” activities. Yet, as many of us have discovered, it can be just as hectic as the rest of the year—perhaps more so. How many times have we returned from a vacation only to exclaim, “I need a vacation!” This isn’t to say that vacation time is bad. It’s just to say that if it is truly to be leisurely, it has to be done in a certain way.


After Long Preparation, National Eucharistic Congress Set to Begin in Indianapolis...


Do I Really Notice Each Child?
John Cuddeback
Every person requires truly individual attention. Especially a child; especially today. Among the greatest tragedies is a neglected child, more so even than a sick, injured, or hungry child. Of course there is neglect, and there is neglect. Let’s focus on the lesser and more pervasive form. I don’t want to be overly dramatic. Yet I honestly think that some form of this often plays out, rather unnoticed, under our very noses. Perhaps in our own home.


Guadalajara Archbishop to Pope Francis on Latin Mass Ban: ‘Do Not Allow This to Happen’...


The devil hates telling the truth, but sometimes he just can’t help himself...
Tom Nash
Jesus proclaims that Satan “is a liar and the father of lies” and “when he lies, he speaks according to his own nature.” Our Lord adds that the devil “has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him” (John 8:44, emphasis added).Does this mean that the devil is incapable of telling the truth?No, because Scripture teaches us that the demons accurately identify Jesus as “the Son of God”
