Pope St. John Paul II on the Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist...
Tom Perna
Today in the both lungs of the Catholic Church, the East and the West, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist, or as it is titled in the East – Nativity of the Holy Glorious Prophet, Forerunner and Baptist John. St. John the Baptist is the son of Saints Zachariah and Elizabeth and the last great Old Testament prophet...

A discussion of the question of women deacons on Fox News...
Dawn Eden Goldstein
What to make of the arguments for ordaining women deacons? I debate the issue with Christopher Jolly Hale of Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good on Fox News religion correspondent Lauren Green's "Spirited Debate." The segment is a reprise of the discussion that Hale and I had in the New York Times's Room for Debate...


This summer, dress for church like a Roman tourist...
Carrie Gress
It is that time of year again, when skirts get shorter and necklines get plunge-ier. Last week at Mass I saw a teenage girl and her family bring up the gifts. Her skirt was so short she couldn’t bow to the priest after passing off the gifts, for fear that everything would be revealed. For the two years I lived in Rome, I was always grateful for the visual images outside of churches to remind tourists and pilgrims alike what was expected of women and men entering a church...

Tony Rossi
“We got into this to stop bad things from happening to good people.” That’s how John Reese (Jim Caviezel) summed up his work with Harold Finch (Michael Emerson) during the first season of “Person of Interest,” the CBS TV series which aired its series finale last night (and which I’ll comment on a little further down)...

Britain needs more than Brexit. It needs Jesus Christ...


When NBA Finals MVP Lebron James cited Jesus' Second Coming in a post-game interview...
Brantly Millegan
NBA star Lebron James just led his team the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA Championship, and his third. James is considered to be one of the best basketball players ever and was named MVP of the NBA Playoffs. But did you know that James believes in Jesus Christ? At least that’s what it seems like given something he said publicly in 2015...


One priest's concern about recent remarks by the Pope...
Msgr. Charles Pope
I would like to make, as a parish priest in trenches, a few remarks concerning the Pope’s recent statements in Rome at a gathering of priests and seminarians. Others have admirably remarked on his troubling remarks on marriage and cohabitation. I will not add to those. But I would like to focus on two other reported remarks the Pope made about priests to the effect that some of us are cruel...


There's a right way to fight tyranny, and a wrong way...
Philip Kosloski
During this Fortnight for Freedom, the US Bishops have asked us to “Hold firm, stand fast, and insist upon what belongs to you by right as Catholics. — Our First, Most Cherished Liberty.” Furthermore, Archbishop Lori has pointed out that we must fight for freedom in a spirit of joy, signaling out the Little Sister of the Poor saying...


What Brexit Britain could have learned from Pope Francis’s synod...


You are called to be a witness in a new age of martyrdom...
R. Jared Staudt
When we think of the age of the martyrs, the great witness against the idol worship of the Roman Empire comes to mind. The Romans did not force any kind of religious uniformity on its conquered territories, save that the Roman Emperor himself could be included in a wide pantheon of gods. In a way, the Romans were forcing relativism and tolerance on their citizens: everyone can worship whatever god they prefer...

Pin the tale on the Christian? An ancient blame game is still in use...
John Clark
It would be a terrible understatement to say that Christians received a lion’s share of the blame for Roman society’s ills. Much more than that, Christianity essentially received all the blame; indeed, that was an institutional part of the societal framework. Tertullian noted that Christians were being blamed not only for every class of crime (including...

Council of 10 Orthodox Churches sets sail on an even keel...
Victor Gaetan
Opening the first Holy and Great Council of Eastern Orthodox Churches in more than 1,100 years, Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople led a packed auditorium at the Orthodox Academy of Crete in singing an apolytikion for Pentecost: Blessed are you, Christ our God, who revealed the fishermen to be most wise by sending down to them the Holy Spirit...

Learning Lectio Divina...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
Lectio Divina, or Holy Reading, is a wonderful, monastic contribution to spirituality. It combines two aspects of the threefold Benedictine life of Work, Prayer and Reading. When we participate in Lectio Divina we pray and read. We read and pray. The essential idea is that we read the sacred Scriptures not critically or even to gather information...
