Pope's Wednesday Audience: "Why do you still seek the living among the dead?"...


You're so touchy, you probably think this post is about you...
Matt Archbold
Who'd have thought that that a little thing like the internet could transform the greatest country in the history of the world into an army of 24-7 perpetual rage monkeys? Well, it has. Everyone's offended. All the time. The level of discourse in this country has devolved into a combox discussion.


We all want to protect babies, but this new law in Tennessee is the exact wrong way to go about it...
Simcha Fisher
Tennessee is waiting to see if its governor will sign a law which would hold pregnant women criminally accountable for drug use. If a baby is harmed by his mother's drug use, then under this law, the mother may be charged with criminal assault, with a penalty of up to 15 years in prison. Pro-lifers.

Did Pope Francis tell a divorced and civilly remarried woman she could receive Holy Communion?
Jimmy Akin
According to the press accounts, an Argentine woman named Jaqui Lisbona wrote Pope Francis expressing her concern about not being able to receive Communion due to being civilly remarried following a divorce. Her current marriage has lasted 19 years and resulted in two children. Pope Francis then called her, told her that the subject was under study at the Vatican...

This is the key to increasing vocations...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
It seems to me that if we want to see an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life, we have to start praying more specifically about what we really want and about what we are willing to give. For example, can we please stop lumping all vocations together? Marriage is sliding down the hill towards the edge of the cliff...


Catholic conversions are down nationwide, but Washington saw a record high number this year. Here's why...
Msgr. Charles Pope
There was an informative and helpful article in the Washington Post this Easter Sunday that demonstrates certain keys to success in evangelization. The focus of the article is the happy fact that the Archdiocese of Washington welcomed a record number of converts this year at the Easter Vigil. But the article also documents important factors that helped that number.

Pope John Paul II on Mary’s witness to the Resurrection of her Son...
Tom Perna
Although the Sacred Scriptures never speak of the Blessed Virgin Mary interacting with Jesus Christ after his Crucifixion on Calvary, it is highly doubtful that He would have never appeared to her or speak to her again. He does give her to Saint John on the Cross, “Women, behold your son”, who in turn represents all Christians and all of humanity...


10 reasons you should believe in the Resurrection of Jesus...
Deacon Matthew Schneider
St Paul said that if Christ did not rise from the dead we are the greatest of fools. But if Jesus did rise from the dead everyone else could be considered the greatest of fools. Now Easter is over, I thought it appropriate to present 10 reasons why the resurrection happened. For instance: If the Apostles made it up, they would have arrived before the women.

It is fitting to canonize John XXIII and John Paul II as the twin bookends of the Second Vatican Council...
George Weigel
Pope Francis’s bold decisions to canonize Blessed John XXIII without the normal post-beatification miracle, and to link Good Pope John’s canonization ceremony to that of Blessed John Paul II, just may help re-orient Catholic thinking about modern Catholic history. For what Francis is suggesting, I think...


The Catholic Church can’t win a popularity contest. She never will...
Anthony Esolen
A few weeks ago, a Catholic priest caused quite a stir in one of our local diocesan high schools. He spoke the truth about sex. Pause here to sigh, and to wish that our heresies were more interesting. Some of the parents and students objected. They did not say...

Coptic priest named personal secretary to Pope Francis...
Andrea Gagliarducci
Msgr. Yoannis Lahzi Gaid, a priest of the Coptic Patriarchate of Alexandria, has been made second personal secretary to Pope Francis. The position is among the Pope’s closest collaborators, and this marks the first time that an Eastern Catholic priest has been appointed to the position. The vacancy filled by Msgr.

Richard Cole was not much of a believer: By his own admission, he didn’t pray, he didn’t worship. He was in recovery following years of alcohol abuse. Raised Methodist, he had fled the church of his youth to dabble in Zen, t’ai chi, New Age, witchcraft. But then for his 49th birthday...

While the Church is firm on same-sex marriage, many Catholics are rejecting its teaching...
Greg Erlandson
There is probably no more divisive topic in the Church right now than the subject of gay marriage. Catholics, particularly younger Catholics, increasingly mirror the rapid change in attitudes toward same-sex marriage that has typified both popular and legal opinion. The Church finds itself pinned between its assessments that homosexual acts are gravely disordered...
