Pope Francis: "The devil is no myth. He exists and we must fight against him"...


Can you trust atheist journalist Eugenio Scalfari's papal interviews?
Andrea Gagliarducci
Following the publication of a new text by Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari in 'La Repubblica' suggesting that Pope Francis believes in relativism, the Holy See spokesman has questioned whether Scalfari is advancing his own views. In a recent op-ed in the leftist Italian newspaper, Scalfari mentioned one of his recent conversations with Pope Francis...


As the days get ever darker, Jesus Christ needs men to be men...
Msgr. Charles Pope
If the ladies will pardon me (for women have their own sort of strength), I want to issue a special summons to men, especially fathers, husbands, and priests. The summons is simple: be a man. We need men in these dark days, men who will heroically speak and act, men who will announce the truth and insist upon it wherever they have authority...

7 reasons you should love Halloween...
Rachel Lu
Frank Weathers says he’s done apologizing for Halloween. I’m way ahead of him. I never started. Halloween is a great holiday! I think it’s ridiculous that so many people think they’re pious for boycotting what should be a wonderful spiritual and evangelical opportunity. Plus, a lot of fun. Here’s what I love about Halloween...

We can't have amazing parishes without amazing parishioners...


You are not empowered by being naked in public...
Jenny Uebbing
I have this pretty, funny, sort of insecure little college girl in mind when I write this. And she is smart and beautiful, and she seems to kind of know it, but she also seems to want to trade almost exclusively on her looks. So that makes me think maybe she's not as sure as she'd like to seem. Does that make sense?


The Pope is, I promise you, a Real Catholic. So chill out...
Mark Shea
“God is not a divine being”. There’s the latest panic attack source for Reactionaries filled with the dread that, say what Pollyanna fools like me will, the pope is a heretic. The remark (not sure how accurately translated...


Scrutonizing the hound: A way of understanding our Father's business...


Thank God for Albacete, who is Latin and lighthearted...
Robert Royal
Apologetics has always been a difficult business, but it has gotten even harder as the very starting points for religious argument have receded from most people’s minds. And to modern ears, apologetics sound too much like an apology—for what the clerics, or the Church, or even God have been up to over the last 20 centuries.

Some Hispanics are converting to Islam and Mormonism. Does Catholicism ask too little of us?
Elizabeth Scalia
Spent some time reading about how Hispanics are converting to Islam and Mormonism. It is striking to consider that while some in the Church are suggesting that we need to require less of people, we are losing members to religions that are perceived to require “more” of them — particularly as pertains to prayer and fasting, and even to what people wear.

This is probably one of the Devil's favorite words...


Sadly, many Catholics do not vote on Election Day. I don’t understand why...
Bishop James Conley
On Saturday, November 1st, the Church universal will celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints. On this day, we celebrate the whole Church Triumphant, the body of believers who enjoy the beatific vision of the Blessed Trinity, for all eternity. In the Jubilee Year 2000, St. John Paul II pointed out that on November 1st...


Life is short and eternity is long, so let's get real...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
I’ve worn out the keyboard on my laptop. Honestly. The keys don’t respond. Maybe my laptop is telling me something. I spend so much time on the laptop because I write, write, write. I’m blessed with lots of ideas so I clutter up the blogosphere, websites and publishers with my tappety tappings.

Pope's Wednesday Audience: "Christ is the model and the Church is His Body"


Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete was an unkempt man and a brilliant priest...
Tom Hoopes
I first met Msgr. Lorenzo Albacete on Capitol Hill. I was the Press Secretary for Congressman Bill Archer and he was the featured talent in a Knights of Columbus initiative to teach hill staffers about the Bible. He sat with us in an empty House committee chamber eating a sandwich that dribbled down his chin and onto his jacket...


The gravest danger Catholics face is not the world's hostility. It's the world's false friendship...


Could respect for the papacy mean resisting the pope?
Phil Lawler
A challenging column by Ross Douthat in the New York Times prompts me to clarify my thoughts on the recent Synod and especially the Pope’s role in the October session. Douthat kindly links to my piece, “The Pope is not the problem,” as representative of efforts by conservative commentators to assuage fears about the Pope’s involvement.


Pray for souls in Purgatory, and don't waste time here on earth...
Troy Hinkel
On All Souls Day, the Catholic Church offers prayers and liturgies for the repose of the dead. As Catholics, we are called by the Church to focus our spiritual energies to assist these poor souls, who, though saved, are still in need of purification.

Cuba builds first new church in 55 years...


Wow. Just wow. You really must watch this video. No. Really...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
I am not sure how to get hold of any of these good people, I’d be happy to come to celebrate Holy Mass in that chapel – of course with the necessary recognition of the diocese – in the older form, as this church was built to house. It would be my pleasure.
