Bishop-elect in Chile resigns after controversial statements on sex abuse crisis...
Inés San Martín
Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of an auxiliary bishop-elect in Santiago, Chile, after he made controversial comments on the sexual abuse crisis, women in the Church, and the Jewish community. “The Holy Father has accepted the resignation of Father Carlos Eugenio Irarrázaval Errázuriz as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Santiago...


French politicians divided over how to rebuild Notre Dame...
Clemente Lisi
It has been two months since a fire at the start of Holy Week destroyed the roof of the famed Notre Dame Cathedral. The large gothic structure now sits, enveloped in scaffolding, as a part of the low-rise Parisian skyline. The 300-foot spire that once appeared to stretch out to heaven is missing. These are constant reminders of that April 15 blaze and the hard work that lies ahead...

Vatican to publish Amazonian Synod’s working document next week...
Edward Pentin
The Vatican has announced it will publish the working document for the upcoming Amazonian synod Monday. The document, known as an instrumentum laboris, will act as a basis for discussion for the synod of bishops which will be held in October on the theme “Amazonia: New Paths for the Church and for an Integral Ecology.” It follows publication last summer of a preparatory document on the synod...


The unexpected answer to Islam: Evangelize!...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
You’ve probably heard the horror stories. Muslims are crowding into Europe. They’re going to conquer the continent by stealth. London has a Muslim mayor. Muslims are calling for sharia law. There are so many Muslims in England you might as well call the capital “Londonistan.” Muslims are swamping France, Italy and Germany...


U.S. Bishops authorize reporting mechanism for episcopal abuse cases...


Day 3 of the U.S. Bishops’ meeting: At last, the votes...
Rocco Palmo
Normally, the end of a USCCB plenary tends to be more whimper than bang. For the millionth time, however, these days are anything but "normal"... and indeed, seeing a good few of the bishops trying to mask themselves underneath floppy fisherman's hats while off the Floor has only underscored it. Fifty-one weeks since the exposure of the then-cardinal...

How to cope when suicide touches your life...
Jim Schroeder
A few months ago, I got the news that an extended family member had died by suicide. As someone whose family had been blessed not to experience this before, the news was met with quite a shock, which was soon replaced with deep sadness in the days and weeks that followed. Of course, his immediate family continues to try and cope with it...

The Strange Case of Dr. Biden and Mr. Hyde...
Fr. George Rutler
Bishop Miler Magrath (Maolmhuire Mag Raith) of Ireland (1523-1622) wrote his own epitaph for the tomb in Cashel in which he was finally laid in his one hundredth year. The syntax is convoluted as was his life: “Here where I am placed I am not. I am not where I am not. Nor am I in both places, but I am in each.” It was his way of recalling that he managed to be a Catholic bishop and a Protestant bishop at the same time...

Cardinal Cupich’s rationale for not taking canonical action against prominent pro-abortion Catholic politicos is as unconvincing as ever...
Edward Peters
No one thought that Chicago’s Blase Cdl. Cupich would follow Springfield’s Bp. Thomas Paprocki’s example in calling upon Catholic state legislators, who had supported Illinois’ express attack on the basic rights of pre-born babies, to refrain from holy Communion until they repented of their evil deed (Canon 916), further directing that his ministers withhold holy Communion from two specific legislators based on their protracted and public support of such measures (Canon 915)...

Marital relations after a tubal ligation 22 years ago out of fear of pregnancy...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
Friend, be at ease about this. Life is messy and the situation of the Church in the last few decades has been crazy. It is greatly to your credit that you wondered and worried about these questions enough to consult. I’m just sorry that you had to be in a conflict of conscience for any length of time because you didn’t get a straight answer from the priests you asked...


Would the new U.S. bishops hotline have caught ‘Uncle Ted’ McCarrick?
Terry Mattingly
Would abuse accusations against former cardinal Theodore “Uncle Ted” McCarrick have reached the public without the existence of the Lay Review Board in the Archdiocese of New York? Would the New York Times have published its bombshell stories about McCarrick — one of the most powerful U.S. Catholics ever, in terms of media clout — without the knowledge that this Lay Review Board existed and could report its findings...


Beware the 5 progressive stages of sin...
Msgr. Charles Pope
We are living in times when many are doubling down on their sin. As the darkness grows, many fiercely defend their sinful practices. This is especially evident in the matter of abortion. The science could not be clearer that there is a unique, beautifully formed, distinct human life in the womb of a pregnant mother, with a heartbeat...


Analysis: At USCCB meeting, will words speak louder than votes?


You probably know high school classmates who gather for their 30th or even 50th reunions. How about their 70th?
Jim Davis
Whenever alumni of Sts. Peter and Paul School hear of 20th or 30th anniversary reunions, they just smile. In early April, they held their 70th. Many of them became friends in first grade, just after World War II. They studied, danced, played ball, tossed water balloons, went to movies together — and kept in touch after graduation...

We must pray, even for the difficult...
Kevin Tierney
As we continue the June meeting of the USCCB (where they will discuss and implement norms on how to best address the latest round of the abuse crisis in the Church), there are a lot of different emotions Catholics are feeling. There will also be a lot of different suggestions for ways the laity can help contribute to the discussion...

High Noon in Poland, 30 years later...
George Weigel
Thirty years ago last week, Poland began to self-liberate from communism through the first semi-free elections held behind the iron curtain since World War II. The memorable 1989 election poster created by the Solidarity movement’s graphic artists featured Gary Cooper as Marshall Will Kane in the western epic, High Noon: the lawman was wearing a red-and-white Solidarity pin over his badge while striding purposefully toward the bad guys...
