Pan-Amazonian pandemic: A pivotal moment in the Catholic Church...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Western culture has brought great blessings to this world! Though Western culture draws deeply from the fonts of the Old Testament and ancient Greece and Rome, it is in the Christian era that it especially flourished. The emergence of the powerful gospel vision led to the rise of monasteries that preserved scripture and other knowledge...


What the devil did the Jesuit superior general just say?


These are the signs of a good education...
Joseph Pearce
As the new school year gets under way, it’s a good time to be thinking about the quality of education that our children are getting, or in all too many cases the education that they are not getting. The first test of what constitutes a good education is the way that one of the most important questions is asked and answered. It is Pilate’s famous question to Christ: Quid est veritas...


A little take on the Catholic Twitter working mom controversy...
Jenny Uebbing
She rises at dawn to lace up her running shoes, logging hard-won miles in the gray light of morning. She is up before the sun with a sick baby, a nursing baby, an anxious kindergartener, making toast and oatmeal and gestures of comfort. She is still asleep at dawn because the baby nursed four times last night. She leaves the house by seven to get the kids to school...

Aussie headaches on Pell case could be child’s play compared to Rome’s...
John Allen
Up to this point, the ire of those who believe Cardinal George Pell is innocent of the charges of child sexual abuse brought against him in his home country has been directed largely at the Australian judiciary, most recently at a Victoria appeals court that upheld his conviction on Wednesday in a 2-1 split decision. Assuming that ruling holds up...


The Queenship of Mary is deeply rooted in Scripture...
Kathy Schiffer
Pope Pius XII established Aug. 22 as the Memorial of the Queenship of Mary in 1954; but Mary’s role as queen over the universal Church finds its roots in the Scriptures. At the Annunciation, the archangel Gabriel announced that Mary’s Son would rule forever on the throne of David. At the Visitation, Elizabeth called Mary the “mother of my Lord...

The conviction of Pell is an outrage — the case against him could not be proved beyond a reasonable doubt...

What happens when Christian dialogue ignores the Creed?
Marlon De La Torre
Soon to be Saint Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman once commented that “true development occurs when Christianity is able to assimilate the surrounding environment, informing and changing its culture, whereas corruption happens when its instead the environment that assimilates Christianity to itself.” A central premise of this statement is the idea that genuine dialogue is based on revealed truth and not an inquiry to truth...

Don’t underestimate the Vatican’s power in Italian politics...
Clemente Lisi
The Tiber River cuts through Rome in the shape of a serpent, splitting the ancient city in half. On one side is the Vatican, home to the Catholic Church with the large dome of St. Peter’s Basilica looming over the city’s skyline. Directly across from the Vatican is Palazzo Montecitorio, seat of the Italian parliament. It is a place many Italians despise because it houses bickering politicians...


Fr. Sosa’s remarks on the devil warrant an official response from Church authorities...
Edward Peters
The existence of the devil as a personal reality, and not merely as a symbol of evil, is an article of faith (Ott, Fundamentals 126-131; CCC 395, 2851). Denial of an article of faith is an element of the canonical crime of heresy (1983 CIC 751), an act punishable by measures up to and including excommunication, dismissal from the clerical state...


The ‘ring of truth’ is all it took to keep Cardinal Pell in prison...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
The “ring of truth.” The two justices who denied the appeal of Cardinal George Pell Aug. 21 said that the complainant’s testimony had the “ring of truth.” If so, they were able to detect the tinkle of a sanctuary bell, even though contradictory evidence was pouring forth from the cathedral organ at top volume, with all stops pulled...


Mary Queen of Heaven? Where’s that in the Bible?
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
Calling Mary the “Queen of Heaven” seems to most non-Catholics a title too far. How can the simple girl from Nazareth be “Queen of Heaven”? Isn’t that a pagan term? In fact, isn’t the “Queen of Heaven” actually condemned in the Bible? In Jeremiah 44 the Hebrews are blamed for turning back to false gods and they admit that they were making cakes and burning incense to the Queen of Heaven...


Where are the young? Familiar religion ghosts in Washington Post report on Maine’s aging crisis...
Terry Mattingly
If you have followed international news about abortion and demographics, you are used to seeing headlines such as the following in the New York Times, focusing on a side effect of China’s infamous one-child policy. That headline: “Teenage Brides Trafficked to China Reveal Ordeal: ‘Ma, I’ve Been Sold’.” Selling brides...


Ruling cements Pell’s profile as the Dreyfus or Hiss of the Catholic abuse crisis...


This astonishing decision calls into the gravest doubt the quality of justice in Australia...
George Weigel
There will be much more to be said in the weeks and months ahead about the rejection of Cardinal George Pell’s appeal of his conviction for “historic sexual abuse,” by the 2-1 vote of a three-judge panel of the Supreme Court of Victoria. For the moment, this astonishing, indeed incomprehensible, decision calls into the gravest doubt the quality of justice in Australia—and the possibility of any Catholic cleric charged with sexual abuse to receive a fair trial or a fair consideration of the probity of his trial...

Mary in History: Our Lady of Prompt Succor...
Fr. Victor Feltes
Mary as Our Lady of Prompt Succor (which means, “rapid aid”) has been celebrated in New Orleans, Louisiana on this date for more than 200 years since a famous military victory. The Ursuline Sisters in New Orleans had honored a statue of Mary by this title for several years in their chapel, but when the British army threatened to capture their city during the War of 1812 these nuns and many townsfolk spent the night beseeching her help...
