Pope warns world is one step away from nuclear war, says ‘I think we are at the very limit’


Vatican responds to outcry over papal award for pro-abortion politician, says Order of St. Gregory is routine gesture...
Edward Pentin
The Vatican has said a papal honor given to a militant pro-abortion Dutch politician was standard “diplomatic practice” when someone is part of an official delegation with their head of state, and in no way was meant as a sign of support for her politics of abortion or birth control. In a statement released Monday evening, the Vatican said the honor awarded to Lilianne Plouman — as Commander in the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St...


Dear Mr. Bible Guy who tried to convert my son and his friends...
Jennifer Fitz
Dear Christian Bible Guy, I want to thank you for coming up to my son and his friends at our state’s March for Life and trying to talk them out of the Catholic faith. You were bound to talk to someone. The pro-life movement is the place of all places where serious Catholics and serious non-Catholic Christians spend lots of time together side-by-side...


Of sports radio, squabbles, and signs of life...
Rick Becker
I’m what you’d call a “fair-weather runner” – which means I’m not running these days. Come spring, however, and the thaw (God willing), you’ll find me out there on the street almost daily: Putting in my miles, getting ready for my 5Ks, running my 5Ks, chasing my younger kids on their bikes when they let me. It’s my annual endorphin spree...


Pope to face fallout from abuse scandals in both Chile and Peru...
Inés San Martín
A top papal aide said on Thursday that Pope Francis’s upcoming trip to Chile and Peru next week would not be “simple,” in what may qualify as an early candidate for the understatement of 2018. Among many other challenges awaiting the pontiff, he’ll have to face the fallout of sexual abuse scandals in both traditionally Catholic nations that have divided and demoralized the rank and file...

The metaphysics of democracy...
Fr. Thomas Joseph White
Liberalism began as a political project that sought to curtail the role of religion in public life. Religious impulses haven’t proven easy to expel, however, even in secular societies. Contemporary secular liberalism aspires to be a universal project that supplants traditional religion and relegates it to the private sphere. Paradoxically...

One of the Church’s most significant relics is making a pilgrimage across Canada this January.

An interview with Bishop Michael Yeung Ming of Hong Kong...
Victor Gaetan
Twenty years since Hong Kong’s passage from British colonial rule to Chinese central government rule, 20 years since the application of the “one country, two systems” formula, Beijing is dropping the pleasantries. The communist giant has increasingly exerted its power over education, the judiciary and the electoral process governing the island’s 7...


When it comes to the law of God, there are 2 ways to err...
Msgr. Charles Pope
In the Gospels we are reading this week at daily Mass we see Jesus coming into conflict with the religious authorities of His day, who accuse Him of violating the law. Perhaps a way of summarizing Jesus’ replies is in the old Latin expression Caritas suprema lex (Charity is the highest law). In other words, laws are meant to regulate our relationships with God and with others...

Matriarchy demeans men and polygamy demeans women...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
Why are modern men such layabouts? It’s simple. When the family declines, men decline. A couple of years ago Rod Dreher wrote a column about this phenomenon. You can read it here. Quoting various articles, Rod concludes that men who are disassociated from family life soon become de-motivated, shiftless and underachieving. I’ve known men with severe self-esteem problems...

Father Francis Canavan: Jesuit priest’s wisdom is in ‘Fun is Not Enough’ collection...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
Here’s how I endorsed the new collection Fun Is Not Enough — a compilation of columns Father Francis Canavan, S.J., wrote for the old Catholic Eye newsletter — which was published by the same people responsible for The Human Life Review: “In a world that often fails to recognize true values, those of us who seek to evangelize the culture run the risk of drowning in incoherence or submitting to the temptations of worldly idols...

Bishop Brian Farrell, Secretary of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, gave a talk Tuesday night at Notre Dame’s Global Gateway facility in Rome addressed to ecumenical and inter-faith experts, which laid out the Church’s post-Vatican II approach to ecumenism and the new directions the press to bring Christians together is getting from Pope Francis...

American moviegoers aren’t necessarily the most demanding viewers in the world, but it seems we have our limits, if dire movie-ticket sales for 2017 are any indication. Not since 1992 have so few Americans gone to the movies; it was the worst year for moviegoing in a quarter century. The punishment wasn’t equally shared in Hollywood...
