Prayer for the conversion of a loved one...


The ministry of angels, as seen in a commercial...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Most of us struggle with the fact that God allows bad things to happen to us. Why does He not intervene more often to protect us from attacks of various kinds and from events that cause sadness, setbacks, or suffering? While mysterious, the clearest answer is that God allows suffering in order that some greater blessing may occur...


Canon law and Catholic common sense...
Edward Peters
Asmall but intense drama unfolded last week in the Catholic Diocese of Richmond, Virginia. Thanks largely to the graciousness of the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia, the matter was resolved in the least painful way possible. Even so, it warrants a few words of reflection. The Episcopal diocese was seeking a large, convenient venue for the upcoming consecration of Rev...


On day of March for Life, VP Pence and Pope Francis discuss US pro-life movement during Vatican meeting...


What St. Francis de Sales can teach us about charisms...
Marlon De La Torre
Identity I argue is a very important term within the context of leading a person to Jesus Christ. Whether the intention is to introduce the concept of God, guide someone toward developing a relationship with Jesus Christ or simply introducing a genuine life in steeped in prayer, these elements are intimately united toward a central theme of introducing and guiding a person toward Jesus Christ hence identity...

The Lamb from the ‘Ghent Altarpiece’ is worrying art lovers...


A plea for Pakistan’s Christians...
Archbishop Charles Chaput
Many Pakistani Catholic families currently live in the Greater Philadelphia region. They are a great blessing to our community. These are very impressive people, grateful for their Pakistani heritage, whose Catholic faith was nourished in Pakistan. However, the hardships now faced by Christians in Pakistan profoundly concern them...


This is a war we’re in. Get used to it...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
During my recent bout with the flu I had the chance to re-read Evelyn Waugh’s Sword of Honor trilogy. One of the criticisms of the books is that they are uneven, dull at times, confusing and disjointed. On re-reading I realize much of that was intentional. Waugh was showing the reality of war. I’ve also been reading more Church history...


A pilgrimage to the world’s oldest house church — which is in Connecticut...
R. Jared Staudt
My family spent Christmas back in my hometown, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Some of us took a pilgrimage of sorts to visit ancient and medieval art in New York City and Yale University’s Art Gallery in New Haven. Connecticut may seem an odd location, but a team from Yale helped to excavate the Roman colony of Dura-Europos in Syria in the 1930s...

Father Leo Heinrichs, Denver priest shot at Mass in 1908, could be declared a saint...
Philip Kosloski
When Joseph Heinrichs fled Otto von Bismarck’s Kulturkampf in Germany, he thought he was escaping persecution. He didn’t know that shortly after being ordained a Franciscan priest and taking the religious name Leo, he would be shot because of one man’s hatred for the Catholic faith. Fr. Leo Heinrichs initially served at various places in New York and New Jersey...

This Sunday is the first “Biblemas” ever! Here are the readings for the Sunday of the Word of God...
John Bergsma
For the first time in the history of the Church, we are celebrating the Feast of the Word of God this Sunday, the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time. By his beautiful motu proprio “Aperuit Illis”, Pope Francis established a new feast day to be observed every year on the Third Sunday of Ordinary Time, celebrating the Word of God...

Tim Tebow marries Miss Universe: It’s tabloid heaven, but there's a deeper story there...
Terry Mattingly
Let’s face it. A New York City tabloid is going to do what a New York City tabloid is going to do. So, if you had to make a prediction, what do you think would be in the lede of a New York Daily News report about Tim Tebow marring a woman who had been named Miss Universe? Think it through. What aspect of Tebow’s life have more than a few journalists (and activists with lower motives) probed ever since That Press Conference during his playing days at the University of Florida...

HBO’s ‘The New Pope’ serves up plenty of sin, but no substance...
Clemente Lisi
There is often a Hollywood fascination with all that’s morbid about religion. It has traditionally had a profane approach when it comes to the Catholic church. That it loves to dramatize reality into what can sometimes be an ugly trope, this is exactly what we get with HBO’s new TV mini-series The New Pope. The series picks up from The Young Pope...


Parish in Rome opens doors to the poor, 24 hours a day...
Inés San Martín
Despite the fact that Rome has some 900 Catholic churches, finding one that is open for prayer at any given moment can be quite challenging. Some keep office hours, but most open only around Mass time. Yet as of last December, there is a church that is open 24/7, with Eucharistic adoration and a team of 8 to 10 volunteers who, together with the parish priest...

How Communist cruelty and Western folly built a ticking underpopulation bomb in China...
Ross Douthat
In recent days both this newspaper and The Wall Street Journal have carried reports on one of the most important geopolitical facts of the 21st century: The world’s great rising power, the People’s Republic of China, is headed for a demographic crisis. Like the United States and most developed countries, China has a birthrate that is well below replacement level...

How do parents make travel easier for children with hidden disabilities?
Julia Duin
You’ve seen them at the airport, at the beach or in a restaurant. A child is thrashing or kicking or on the ground while a desperate parent hovers nearby, trying to ignore angry glances from passersby. I know because I’ve been that anguished parent. On display are “cognitive disabilities,” invisible handicaps related to how children’s brains work...
