“What are people to make of our silence?” Bishops discuss McCarrick in Baltimore


At the USCCB, Mahony showed he’s still full of it. But Bishop Biegler’s talks deserves more attention...


Dan Crenshaw: “SNL mocked my appearance. Here’s why I didn’t demand an apology...”...


To the U.S. bishops: A (friendly) call to repentance and reform...
Janet Smith
Not only the US bishops but a significant portion of lay Catholics are discussing and pondering – almost obsessively — what can be done to address the sexual abuse crisis. A vast array of “solutions” has been proposed for dealing with who knew what, when, and who did what in respect to Archbishop McCarrick and how accusations of abuse of minors against bishops should be handled...


A foolish dreamer awakens in the Church at last...
Richard Evans
Many of you reading this are familiar with much of my journey and story. If you are, you likely know that I have had more than my share of struggles in my pursuit of Catholicism at her core. That core is chasing holiness. To quote the Baltimore Catechism, which I was raised on, in question 6 of the very 1st lesson: “Why did God make you...


Raffaella Stroik, 23-year-old daughter of architect Duncan Stroik, found dead in rural Missouri lake; no foul play suspected ...


A century after the armistice...
George Weigel
I’m just old enough to remember when my elders still called November 11 “Armistice Day”—the armistice in question being that which stopped the shooting in the Great War. As a military matter, World War I may have ended a century ago, on November 11, 1918, allowing my Grandfather Weigel and millions of other doughboys to be demobilized...


Vatican shocks U.S. bishops, while some journalists keep tight focus on child abuse — alone...
Terry Mattingly
It seems like an easy question: What are the sex scandals in the Catholic church all about? If you look at the coverage, week after week, it’s clear that many journalists covering the latest wave of news about the scandals are still wrestling with this issue. Obviously, the scandals center on acts of sexual abuse and harassment by Catholic clergy...


Motivation remains unclear for Vatican request that U.S. bishops delay action...
Edward Pentin
The Vatican has said it instructed U.S. bishops to delay voting on two key proposals on handling the sex-abuse crisis because it is committed to offering the “best evaluation and accompaniment” of the U.S. episcopate on the matter. In brief comments to the Register Nov. 13, Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops...


Pray and fast for the abuse crisis, no matter how mad you are...
Tom Hoopes
Feelings are raw with regard to the sex abuse crisis, and I am in no mood to fast for it. I will anyway. This week, as the U.S. bishops gather for their annual fall meeting, many Catholics are following Pope Francis’s suggestion for fasting and prayer for the bishops at their gathering. At Benedictine College, students are participating in 72 hours of Adoration and fasting...


Feds: Mississippi priest sought sympathy and cash by telling people he had cancer instead of HIV...


Pope names Archbishop Charles Scicluna to the CDF...
Rocco Palmo
Especially as yesterday's Vatican move to nix the US bishops' votes on several crisis-spurred reforms had the effect of detonating an ecclesial bomb of confusion and outrage, this Tuesday's latest salvo from Rome is all the more significant: six years since "The Most Dangerous Man in the Vatican" was quietly slipped out of town...

I have multiple sclerosis. Here’s what it has taught me about life...

I post, therefore I am: Knowing self vs. creating self...
Jason Craig
Often, the difference between a man that believes in virtue and a man who doesn’t comes down to one distinction: is truth true or is truth relative? Most reading this know that “moral relativism” is a plague easily diagnosed and dismissed by sane men, but not truly believing in truth has more manifestations than we might think...

5 more classics of Catholic spirituality for your library...
Fr. John Cush
In my last piece, I mentioned that I would suggest 10 good Catholic books that might be good additions to one’s library. The first five mentioned were rather diverse, with titles from Doctors of the Church like Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Saint Augustine of Hippo, and Saint Gregory the Great, as well as two 20th-century writers — Thomas Merton and Walter Ciszek...

A word of encouragement from Elisha the Prophet...
Msgr. Charles Pope
There is an old saying, “Stop telling God how big your storm is and start telling the storm how big your God is.” In other words, we often need to shift our focus, building up our trust and confidence. Because we are so wired for fear, we tend to overestimate the power and shrewdness of demons, or of our enemies, or of whatever it is we fear...

Philip Kosloski
St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first citizen of the United States to be declared a saint, was an industrious missionary in America. She traveled across the United States, founding schools, hospitals and orphanages everywhere she went. Yet, throughout her missionary adventures, she possessed a profound soul that kept her close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus...

Some tough-minded questions for tender-hearted “Seamless Garment” pro-lifers...
John Zmirak
They don’t use the term “Seamless Garment” much anymore. The invention of flamboyantly pro-gay and left-wing Cardinal Joseph Bernadin, that phrase lost its luster the fiftieth time some pro-choice Irish- or Italian-American politician used it to burnish his Catholic credentials during a campaign. To hide her support for killing children to suit our sexual convenience behind the promise of more cash for Medicaid...
