Pope arrives in Thailand to encourage Catholic minority


7 reasons for hope after David Daleiden’s recent loss...
Patti Armstrong
The $2.2 million jury verdict against David Daleiden and co-defendant Sandra Merritt on Nov. 15 for exposing Planned Parenthood is disheartening. Planned Parenthood sued in San Francisco’s U.S. District Court for trespassing and other alleged illegal investigative methods for the 2015 video recordings of officials bragging about trafficking in baby parts...


Democrat John Bel Edwards wins again in Louisiana — but some journalists totally ignored his anti-abortion stance...
Terry Mattingly
There was a joyful moment the other night — as in special election night — for people who oppose both Donald Trump and the current leadership of the woke Democratic Party. I am referring to the victory of Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, who survived a hard push by Trump to defeat him. Democrats rarely get elected as governors in Southern states these days...


Fr. Dominic Valanmanal, please stop attacking autistics...
Fr. Matthew Schneider
Fr. Dominic Valanmanal is at it again. This priest compared us autistics to animals and blamed our existence on our parents’ sins. This priest is back at it offering counseling to families with autistics in them. This is problematic as he clearly misunderstands autism. I already covered why sin does not cause autism in relation to Fr...


Hell has to be...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Today we come to the final of the Four Last Things: Hell. I have written extensively on this topic over the years, largely in response to the widespread dismissal of the revealed doctrine of Hell. In contradiction to Scripture, many presume that Hell is an unlikely destination for most. Never mind that Jesus taught just the opposite...


Church troubles: What good Catholics may and may not do...
Jeff Mirus
I always get a little tense at this time of year, so I’ll admit that up front. This commentary is not about our Fall Campaign, but this campaign—being the largest and most important one each year—always makes me tense because...well, because I don’t have perfect trust in Providence. I do not yet fully trust in God’s perfect freedom in the service of perfect love...

History viewed through the lens of the Incarnation reveals God’s Providence at work in the world ...


For “Blessed Fulton Sheen,” Peoria races to beatification day...
Rocco Palmo
As last week in Baltimore was marked by a general mood of siege mentality among the US bishops, these last weeks of 2019 will bring a rare feel-good moment for the bench: for just the second time ever, the elevation of one of their own to the altars... and the Big One at that.


Vatican finance guru’s exit suggests ‘Back to the Future’ dynamic on reform...
John Allen
Logically speaking, it may be contradictory to call something both mystifying and utterly predictable, and yet that seems to be a near-constant when it comes to the Vatican’s handling of sensitive or potentially embarrassing news. The latest case in point comes with the departure Monday of René Brülhart, the Swiss lawyer who...


Pope Francis and the American bishops...


Chick-fil-A to stop donating to Salvation Army as LGBT pressure continues...


Pope Francis, is the Secretariat of State strengthened?


What is eternal life?


Pope criticizes deacons who act as “wannabe priests,” says, “Move deacons away from the altar... They are custodians of service, not first-class altar boys” ...

“Gotta Serve Somebody” — Kanye West and Bob Dylan...
K.V. Turley
The internet was buzzing last month with the sound of conversion. Kanye West had declared himself a Christian. News reports told how the 42-year-old rapper had definitively nailed his colors to the mast — or more correctly, to the Cross. And to emphasize the point, last month he released an album entitled: Jesus Is King. It all sounds very familiar...


Myths about the Crusades that too many people believe (maybe even you!)...


Why did the Wall fall, 30 years ago?
George Weigel
November 9 marked the 30th anniversary of the peaceful breach of the Berlin Wall — the symbolic high point of the Revolution of 1989, which would be completed seven weeks later by the fall of the Czechoslovak communist regime and Vaclav Havel’s election as that country’s president. A few days before the actual anniversary...


The dark beast of resentment...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
If you want to understand 98% of the unhappiness in the world–whether it is on the stage of international politics or the stage of your kitchen or bedroom or wherever your arguments happen, continue reading... The book I have finished is called Immortal Combat- The Way of the Christian Warrior and my thinking for this book has been much influenced by Rene Girard and the German philosopher Max Scheler...


Deep in your soul, you long for things higher, warmer, and purer...
John Cuddeback
Solzhenitsyn’s speech is uniquely gripping. When he analyzed Western society in 1978, coming as he had from communist Russia, he offered a unique angle of insight. He reflects on various aspects of the impoverished state of Western culture, and how inadequate it is to fulfill the deeper desires of the human soul—especially the souls of those who had suffered under communism...


After Chick-fil-A capitulation, stay tuned to see if there is a backlash...
Bobby Ross
The headlines came fast and furious after Chick-fil-A revealed Monday that it will capitulate to the gay-rights activists who have attacked it for years. The Babylon Bee declared that the fast-food chain, known for its mouth-watering chicken sandwiches, had traded its adoring Christian fans for an outraged mob that won’t be appeased until its every demand is met...

Shock: Lawsuit filed over funeral homily...
Deacon Greg Kandra
You may remember this story from last year, about a family being upset at the homily preached at the funeral of a man who committed suicide. Now, an update, with this press release from a law firm: On November 14, 2019, the law firm of Charles E. Boyk Law Offices, LLC announced that it has filed a lawsuit on behalf of Linda Hullibarger against The Archdiocese of Detroit...

This is spiritually more beneficial than fasting, according to St. John of the Cross...
Philip Kosloski
Spiritual writers have always stressed the importance of fasting, but St. John of the Cross would argue that there is one spiritual discipline that may be even more beneficial than fasting. He writes in his Sayings of Light and Love, “Conquering the tongue is better than fasting on bread and water.” What he is referring to is the ability to use our words to build up others...
