God’s love, burning its way through history, is harsh and dreadful and merciful...
George Weigel
The Paschal Triduum this year seemed like a return from exile: Holy Thursday’s Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper, in church; Good Friday’s Commemoration of the Lord’s Passion, in church; Saturday evening’s Easter Vigil, in church – what a blessing. Thanking God, I could only be aware of those for whom the exile continues...

Happy Birthday to the pope emeritus Benedict XVI, who turns 94 today. History will remember the theologian formerly known as Joseph Ratzinger for many reasons, but for me he will always be the pope who came to my office one day and changed my life. In 2010, I was working in the House of Commons and Pope Benedict was making a state visit to the UK...

3rd Sunday of Easter: “You are witnesses of these things”...
Msgr. Charles Pope
This Sunday’s Gospel speaks to the necessity of becoming witnesses of Jesus’ resurrection Jesus. It begins with the necessary foundation of the Church’s proclamation: The Lord has risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon! This solemn declaration forms the doctrinal certitude of the resurrection. On this foundation of the truth, the personal witness of every Catholic must be built...


For these working stiffs, it’s ambivalence rather than amore from the Pope...
John Allen
One of Pope Francis’s signature innovations is the World Meeting of Popular Movements, a kind of Davos from the bottom up intended to give voice to grassroots organizations, including workers who are at risk or lack job security, all striving to correct what the pontiff has called an “economy of exclusion and inequality.”

Terry Mattingly
It’s a short scene from second season of “The Crown,” but certainly one the illustrates what the creators of the Netflix series thought of Prince Philip Mountbatten-Windsor — at least at one stage of his dramatic life. In 1955, while Graham was in Scotland leading a crusade in Glasgow, the Billy Graham received a note from Buckingham Palace...


4 lessons on fishing for men...
Marcel LeJeune
My 13 year old daughter and I went fishing recently. I was looking forward to this time with her, but after about 30 minutes of not catching any fish, she gave up. No coaxing could get her to fish anymore. Since she wasn’t catching anything, she thought fishing was pointless. Of course everybody who fishes will have times when no fish are caught...


15 uplifting quotes from Benedict XVI to celebrate his 94th birthday...


This Sunday: Jesus spends half of the Gospel proving the resurrection, and the other half explaining what it means for us...
Tom Hoopes
After “Divine Mercy Sunday,” think of the Third Sunday of Easter, Year B, as “Trust Jesus Sunday.” The readings urge us to make a real break from sin — and it is a message badly needed in our time, which has been defined by nominal Christianity, and so many have claimed a Christian identity without changing their lives...


In open challenge to Church, German Catholics plan large blessing of gay unions on May 10...
Inés San Martín
Continuing to openly challenge the Vatican, several Catholic leaders in Germany are openly supporting the blessing of same-sex couples, with a massive blessing service scheduled for May 10, in direct opposition to Rome’s chief doctrinal office. Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck of Essen said that the priests in his diocese will face no canonical consequence if they decide to bless gay and lesbian couples next month...
