“Unique From Day One” — Massive crowd gathers in Washington for March for Life 2019


An incorrupt heart, 17,000 youth, and the hope of SEEK19...
Fr. Patrick Briscoe
At the same time that the bishops of the United States gathered at Mundelein Seminary at the behest of Pope Francis for a week of prayer and reflection concerning the clergy sexual abuse crisis, 17,000 young people met just 200 miles away in Indianapolis, Indiana. While the shepherds of the Church were on retreat, the Indiana Convention Center was transformed for the biennial Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) SEEK Conference...


From the Book of Proverbs, here are 3 proverbs for pro-lifers...
Msgr. Charles Pope
We who participate in the March for Life are always in need of the Lord’s strength and guidance, His grace and mercy, in order to see our goal of ending legalized abortion. To that end, I offer some lessons drawn from the 24th chapter of the Book of Proverbs. If you remain indifferent in times of adversity, your strength will depart from you...


Because I believe so deeply in the power of story, let me tell you how I came back to the Church...
Jenny Uebbing
I tend to lean pretty far in the self disclosing direction when I share here on the blog. I’ve pulled back a little bit as the kids have gotten older as far as the specifics I share about them, images, etc, but I’m still a fairly open book with my own story. I share bits about our marriage that Dave approves, but for the most part I’m a one woman show in this space...


Some sobering thoughts about why Fr. Fidelis gets himself arrested, and why we march...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
ather Fidelis Moscinski, C.F.R., goes to the front lines. He’s a Catholic priest with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal, and I run into him now and again. One of the most recent times was at a monthly Saturday morning Mass for life and healing at Old Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan. Afterwards, there’s always a prayerful procession to the flagship Planned Parenthood on Margaret Sanger Place...

Optimism and pessimism are equally dangerous because both God and the devil are full of surprises...
Archbishop Charles Chaput
This month marks the 46th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, which effectively legalized abortion on demand. It also marks another annual March for Life, this year on January 18. It’s a time to look back and look ahead. The abortion struggle of the past four decades teaches a very useful lesson. Evil talks a lot about “tolerance” when it’s weak...


Beware false doctrines — especially when they’re dressed up in traditional Church language...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
If there are problems with the foundation of the house the whole house shudders and creaks. The house that’s built on sand shifts and falls, and one of the major cracks in the modern church, one of the quickest of quicksand foundations is the modernist re-interpretation of the faith. Those who re-interpret believe the old, old story is out of date and needs to be made accessible and relevant for modern man...

The No. 1 reason average Catholics don’t evangelize...
Marcel LeJeune
The data doesn’t lie. In what they personally believe about salvation, most Catholics are closer to Universalists than they are to Catholic doctrine – that is they believe that being a “good" person will get you to heaven. Catholics aren’t alone. Many modern Christians believe in what could at least be described as a quasi-universalism...

Uncle Screwtape is delighted with our social cowardice...
Elizabeth Scalia
My Dear Wormwood, Forgive my tardy response to your last flaming missive (or—if you really want to impress me—don’t) in which you attempt to berate me for insufficiently appreciating your efforts at sowing discord within the venue of American Politics. As they say in your circles, “Goon, get over yourself.” Political discord...


At crisis’ Ground Zero, a muted March for the bishops...
Rocco Palmo
In a normal year, these days would see the Stateside church storm the nation's capital with bells on to carry out American Catholicism's most prominent act of advocacy in the public square. For the millionth time, however, these days are anything but normal. That tomorrow's March for Life was destined to unfold in the epicenter of this season of scandal was always bound to make for a tricky confluence...

Karen Pence commits heresy against New York Times editorial board...
Terry Mattingly
How did I miss this story? Apparently, there is some kind of move afoot in elite media to push for the establishment of the Episcopal Church, or perhaps the United Church of Christ, as the state-mandated religion in the United States. Have you heard about this? That’s one way to read the remarkable media response to Second Lady Karen Pence’s decision to return to the teaching at an ordinary evangelical Protestant school that attempts to defend ordinary conservative or traditional Christian doctrine on sexuality...


One answer to the abuse: Stricter seminary entrance standards...
Fr. Regis Scanlon
In late February, Pope Francis will meet with the heads of bishops’ conferences from around the world to address the clergy sexual abuse crisis which began about 50 years ago and continues to afflict the Church to this day. In a previously published article in Crisis Magazine, I pointed out the futility of this three or four day meeting in Rome next month...

Courage International is a lifeline for Catholics living with SSA...
Richard Evans
Have you heard of Courage International? It is the official Catholic apostolate for men, women, and their loved ones who struggle with SSA (same-sex attraction). I have a very dear young friend by the name of Andrés, a beautiful young Latino man who was born and raised in Mexico, where he still lives. I recently learned more about his story...

Kathy Schiffer
Temperance societies – social organizations which opposed drinking and drunkenness – were a powerful force in America by the late 19th century. In the early years of our nation's history, drinking had been commonplace for men, women and even children; and too often, drunkenness was the result. Christian denominations, from John Wesley and the Methodists...

Pro-lifers: Make the scientific argument, but make other arguments too — and make life the easier choice...
David Mills
David Mills Every now and then some pro-lifer says, with the air of a man who holds all the aces, that science shows that the unborn child is a person and therefore has the right to live. He’ll then describe the child’s unique DNA and maybe discuss embryology as well. The pro-choicers hit us with science? he says. Well, we’ll hit ’em back with science even harder...
