Planned Parenthood PR firm circulates memo, requests halt to media coverage of videos


What can we do to combat Satan's influence?
Philip Kosloski
The Devil made his public appearance this past weekend as the Satanic Temple of Detroit unveiled their nine-foot-tall, 2,000-pound bronze statue during a hedonistic party at the Lauhoff Corporation building on July 25. This public display even required participants to literally sign a document that gave their soul to the devil. Needless to say...


This animated map shows how religion spread across the world...


The mind-bending science of awe...


The amazing, and now Venerable, Father Al...
George Weigel
At an inch or so over five feet and weighing, I would guess, something on the underside of 100 pounds, Sister Winnie, a soft spoken Filipina, is not your typical dinner speaker. Yet a few weeks ago she held a room full of Washingtonians spellbound with her story – which is also the story of a largely unknown American of whom the Church in the United States should be very proud...

The death of God and the loss of human dignity...
Bishop-Elect Robert Barron
I am sure by now that many of you have seen the appalling hidden-camera videos of two Planned Parenthood physicians bantering cheerfully with interlocutors posing as prospective buyers of the body parts of aborted infants. While they slurp wine in elegant restaurants, the good doctors — both women — blandly talk about what price they would expect for providing valuable inner organs...


Welcome to the quietest square inch in the United States...


Are you spiritually neglecting your own child?
Marlon De La Torre
Blessed Cardinal Newman once said that “Faith is illuminative, not operative; it does not force obedience, though it increases responsibility; it heightens guilt, but it does not prevent sin. The will is the source of action.” When you take a moment to analyze Blessed Newman’s words, they can easily be directed toward the spiritual relationship between parent and child...

Avila to Aspen (Day 54): My 3,600 mile journey has come to an end...
Fr. John Hilton
My last night’s rest was at an inn in Seaport, built about 1860 by Captain John Nichols. At one time, ten percent of all sea captains in the United States lived in this small seafaring town. A brother and sister, the owners of Homeport Inn, gave me a warm welcome and treated me with great kindness. Thank you, Anita and Herb! I also saw the Penobscot Narrows Bridge and...

What every pro-lifer needs to know about the U.S. Senate and Planned Parenthood...
Rebecca Hamilton
They’re like a giant ball, rolling through the hallways, with wiggling arms and legs sticking out and yells and screams emanating from within. Who? Why, the majority party of the United States Senate, of course. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked amendments to the necessary and tough-to-veto Highway Bill. Among those amendments he killed was language defunding Planned Parenthood...


Hunger and hallucinations: How the stages of starvation describe the decaying West...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Yesterday’s post dealt with the capacity of this world, by God’s promise, to provide sufficient food for us. While hunger does exist, it is due more to human sinfulness than insufficient resources. But even more prevalent these days than physical hunger is spiritual hunger, if not outright starvation. As is the case with physical hunger...

"Senseless" violence and ideological warfare...
William Kilpatrick
Soon after the murder of five servicemen in Chatanooga, politicians and government officials began to refer to the massacre as “senseless”. Defense Secretary Ash Carter called it a “senseless act of violence,” Hillary Clinton pronounced it “an act of senseless violence,” and Tennessee Congressman Scott DesJarlais concurred that it was a “senseless act of violence...


Why Christian leaders are really going green...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
Laudato Si’ took its title from the Canticle of the Creatures of St Francis of Assisi. It has inspired a cataract of conferences in a feverish burst of Vatican activity to stop global warming. From April to September, it is the Holy See’s summer of Brother (Jeffrey) Sachs and Sister (Ban Ki-) Moon, as all manner of people who vigorously promote what St Francis’s Canticle calls “mortal sin” have been welcomed to make common cause on climate change...


‘Kandhamal’ tells the whole story of anti-Christian persecution in India...
John Allen
Because of the dramatic events that unfolded there, certain places have come to symbolize entire movements or chapters of history. “Gettysburg,” for instance, immediately evokes the American Civil War, just as “Tiananmen Square” is now universal shorthand for non-violent protest. In similar fashion, in terms of contemporary anti-Christian persecution...

Is the United States of America an "evil empire"?
Fr. C. John McCloskey
My opinion is that it may well be one at this moment. However, there have certainly been many evil empires in the almost twenty centuries following the life, teaching, crucifixion, and resurrection of Our Lord and Savior. Only God knows when Jesus, having ascended into Heaven, will return to judge the living and the dead. Ultimately...


What does Satan fear most: Saints or sacramentals?


What are Gregorian Masses?
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
By "Gregorian Masses" we usually mean the celebration of thirty Masses for thirty consecutive days for the soul of someone who has died. It is thought that Gregory the Great spread this practice, which was already a tradition by his day. Pope Gregory had these Masses said for, at least, a fellow Roman monk named Justus...

A simple reminder: Pray for police...
Simcha Fisher
Whenever we hear a siren, I tell the kids, "Let's pray for whoever is in trouble," figuring that covers anyone who's had an accident, anyone whose house is on fire, anyone who's the victim of a crime, or even anyone who's committed a crime. The other day, a police car went by our van, and my husband said...


Fishing with a poverty of spirit...
Seth DeMoor
Poverty of spirit, what is it? Reflections from Fr. Michael O’Laughlin reveal a humble way of examining our daily life. The Byzantine Catholic tradition flourishes in this video from a faithful servant of God in Denver, Colorado.
