National Eucharistic Congress Begins in Indianapolis: ‘We Did This for You, Lord’


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.


Social scientists take a dive into the data on the Traditional Latin Mass — here’s what it reveals...


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.

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.

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”


National Eucharistic Congress: ‘We’re Ready’ for Security in Indianapolis...


Yes, lots of colleges are closing these days...
Terry Mattingly
If you are the parent or grandparent of a young person who is nearing college age, you may want to sit down and grab an adult beverage (even if you are Baptist) before reading this weekend “think piece.” Ready? It has been 20 years since I heard my first in-depth (and depressing) lecture on the demographic and lifestyle trends that were going to force the closing of many, many liberal-arts colleges, seminaries and even universities in the decades ahead.

R. Jared Staudt
Temptations in a fallen city, memories of a beautiful woman, a poisoned chalice, the attacks of an envious priest, curses from a pagan priest, a rock that won’t budge, another that falls on a young monk, a kitchen in flames, a dragon that lurks to devour a fleeing monk, threats from Gothic warlords, and the prospect of a destroyed monastery...

Poor Preaching Isn’t Only Due to the Preacher...
Msgr. Charles Pope
We sometimes think that if only Catholic priests were better preachers, all would be well, but that is only half the battle. The Catholic faithful must also have ears to hear and hearts that are open and eager to receive the truth. I have preached before congregations that were expectant and supportive, and saw my feeble words catch fire. I have also preached in settings where “I couldn’t hear nobody pray.” And oh, the difference!

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...

Scott Hahn
As the Twelve return from their first missionary journey in today’s Gospel, our readings continue to reflect on the authority and mission of the Church. Jeremiah says in the First Reading that Israel’s leaders, through godlessness and fanciful teachings, had misled and scattered God’s people. He promises God will send a shepherd, a king and son of David...

Jeff Mirus
Five years before his death, Archbishop Fulton Sheen mentioned that he planned to write a separate book on the demonic, but at the time of his death in 1979, no such book had appeared. Fast forward to 2016, and the newly ordained Fr. Dave Tomaszycki (Archdiocese of Detroit) became very interested in this intention of Archbishop Sheen’s

John Clark
For all their differences, it is clear that President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump agree that the unborn are not — and should not — be federally protected. Though President Trump has objected to Florida’s and Arizona’s recent statewide protections for the unborn, he notionally argues that abortion is a state government matter rather than a federal one...
