Francis Cardinal George: ‘A man of peace, tenacity and courage'


3 ways to distinguish between God's voice and Satan's voice...
Philip Kosloski
The devil hates the Sacrament of Confession with all his might and will do all he can to tell us how miserable we are and that we could never receive God’s Mercy. On the other hand, God will always tell us how beautiful we are in His eyes and how we must never be afraid to come to Him. He is the Father of the Prodigal Son, always ready to embrace us after we have fallen and lift us up...


Traveling to the World Meeting of Families?
Thomas McDonald
When the Pope arrives on Saturday, Sept. 26, for the “Festival of Families” closing events and a papal Mass the following afternoon, that crowd is expected to balloon to 2 million people. It’s important to note that the World Meeting of Families and the papal events are separate events. The meeting is at the Convention Center and requires admission...


Make no mistake about it. Assisted suicide is murder. In fact, it is murder done twice...
Rebecca Hamilton
Poor Brittany Maynard. Brittany Maynard was a young woman who had terminal brain cancer. She opted to kill herself. She used assisted suicide as her method. She did this in a highly-publicized way that made her the poster girl for assisted suicide advocates everywhere. As if that wasn’t bad enough, her actions have inspired a number of states and one municipality to jump on the assisted suicide bandwagon...


Cardinal George is now where he has always wanted to be...
George Weigel
Francis Eugene George was many things: a dedicated missionary priest; a first-rate intellectual; a shrewd observer of the public square; the first native of the Windy City to be named archbishop of Chicago; a great reformer of the Archdiocese of Chicago. But when word of his death came early this afternoon, my first thought was that he was...


"He opened their minds to understand the scriptures": Readings for the Third Sunday of Easter...
Michael Barber
Two themes are underscored by this Sunday's lectionary readings. First, Jesus' passion was anticipated by the prophets. Second, Jesus died for a purpose, namely, the forgiveness of sins. As the lectionary will also make clear, however, recognizing these truths is not simply the result of rationalistic biblical interpretation...


LCWR agrees to abide by Vatican’s corrections...
Ann Carey
The reform of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) mandated three years ago by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has been concluded, according to an April 16 bulletin from the Holy See...

How J.R.R. Tolkien can save your soul...
John Zmirak
Last weekend at New York’s Lincoln Center, I got some idea of what the Last Judgment will be like. You know, the Day that each of us is looking forward to, when all the sins of all the world will be exposed, including our own. There were angelic choirs, infernal screams, brash trumpets, kettle drums — and amidst all the murk and evil...

11 images that capture the incredible vastness of space...


Sr. Joan Chittister's soul evolves, jumps around on Oprah's couch...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
From the Huffington Post comes this jewel: Sr. Joan Chittister and Oprah! Take in this incomprehensible babble, perhaps with some popcorn. I like the expression on Oprah’s face at one point. You can tell that she has no idea what Joan is rambling about. But she soon recovers and nods meaningfully.


"You are my legacy"...
Rocco Palmo
Over 17 years as cardinal-archbishop of Chicago and the American hierarchy's intellect-in-chief, there's precious little in the life of the nation's largest religious body that Francis George didn't somehow touch. Yet even as every aspect of that massive contribution will be pored over everywhere you look over the next few days...


Francis Cardinal George, RIP...
John Allen
His views were not always shared by others, even at times disputed by members of his own flock, but few would question the cogency and resolve with which Cardinal Francis George expressed them.


San Francisco’s dissident Catholics publish ad attacking Archbishop Cordileone...
Kathy Schiffer
A group of more than 100 dissident Catholics in San Francisco have published an “open letter to Pope Francis” in today’s San Francisco Chronicle. In a shocking display of bad etiquette, improper protocol, and ignorance of Catholic teaching, the full-page letter calls on Pope Francis to replace their archbishop, who dares to insist that Catholic schools consistently teach the Catholic faith...


10 things Planned Parenthood doesn't want you to know...
Shaun McAfee
Planned Parenthood recently killed a woman named Tonya Reaves. She went to them for a legal abortion procedure and died. She didn’t have to die, but Planned Parenthood didn’t call an ambulance. They let this woman bleed out on the abortion clinic table for FIVE hours before they finally dialed 911...by that time, it was too late...

The DMV is a snake pit of despair and hidden saints...
Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble
I went to the DMV yesterday. Yes, feel sorry for me now. One of the sisters in my community had cheerfully told me that she went to renew her license at the DMV by our house recently and NO ONE was there. She zipped right through in ten minutes. I hoped against hope that this would be true, but I should have known that this strange...

This is why I could never be a Catholic...
David Mills
Note to my Protestant friends: When you begin an item with “This is why I could never be a Catholic,” you slightly undermine your point simply by saying it. It tells us that “Should I enter the Church?” is a question you feel you must answer —and answer definitively in public too. When someone assertively answers a question no one is asking...
