Pope Francis will publish results of Vatican’s McCarrick investigation by early 2020, Cardinal O’Malley reveals


Pondering our judgment, one of the Four Last Things...
Msgr. Charles Pope
There is a distinction to be made between our personal judgment and the general judgment of the whole world. In the general judgment, God’s truth and justice will be made manifest; all those who have loved evil will be seen by all for who and what they were. Further, every evil and foolish philosophy will be seen for the darkness it is...

How to love others better than you do...
David Mills
The people that had to talk, they bothered me. My sister was dying, and later died, of a cancer that created hundreds and hundreds of tumors in her spine and long bones. She suffered continuous, deep, aching pain. I could barely keep control of my feelings, and they forced me to paste on that pained fake smile, the one you have to wear when good people try to help you...


Cardinal Burke to Ross Douthat: “I’m called the enemy of the Pope, which I am not”...
Ross Douthat
In mid-October, while the Catholic Church’s internal debates were reaching another crescendo at a synod for the Amazon region held in Rome, I sat down with Cardinal Raymond Burke, best known as Pope Francis’s most vocal critic in the church’s hierarchy. Our conversations, which continued last week, covered Burke’s role in Francis-era debates about Catholic moral teaching...

How to explain Pope Francis without making things worse...
Jeff Mirus
Every seriously committed Catholic who is paying attention to Pope Francis has to figure out a way to deal with him both in their own minds, and in speaking about the Church with others. There may be as many different approaches to this problem as there are serious Catholics, but there are certainly several broad categories of response...

Fearlessness and the American bishops in Rome...
George Weigel
I once knew a Congregationalist minister — Yale Divinity School graduate, decorated World War II chaplain, veteran campaigner for then-unpopular liberal causes — of whom it was said (sometimes by himself) that “David Colwell so fears God that he fears no one else.” It was a striking statement, redolent, perhaps, of the Jonathan Edwards (“Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”) School of American Protestant Homiletics...

On opening day of the USCCB meeting, more questions than answers...
Rocco Palmo
A hundred years since the bishops of the United States – freshly gathered into an episcopal conference – made their first collective strike on the national stage with a sweeping Program of Social Reconstruction, the bench has returned to its cradle in this Premier See with a considerably less ambitious agenda, but the specter of history still hanging over the place...


A taste test, and a question: Does eating fake meat (like the Impossible Burger) violate Friday abstinence law?

Are mainstream reporters who ask doctrinal questions part of a great conservative Catholic conspiracy to attack the Pope?
Terry Mattingly
If you have been reading GetReligion for a decade or so, you have probably seen references to the “tmatt trio,” a set of short questions I have long used to probe the doctrinal fault lines inside Christian hierarchies, institutions and flocks. A dozen years ago or so, a website called “Religious Left Online” — it appears that site is now dead — even offered up a fun GetReligion drinking game that suggested that these topics...


Theology in ‘dialogue with cultures’ renews humanity, Pope Francis says...


DACA and our future...
Archbishop Charles Chaput
One of the great blessings I’ve had in my years as a bishop was serving with then-Auxiliary Bishop José Gomez during my tenure in Denver. As shepherd now of the largest and most diverse archdiocese in the United States – the Archdiocese of Los Angeles – Archbishop Gomez has brought a balanced, prudent, and articulate leadership to a wide range of difficult issues...


You and I have unfinished business...
Phil Lawler
Every morning, on our way to Mass we pass two houses that are under construction, side by side. When we first moved to this area, these two houses looked close to completion; the scaffolding around them showed that the contractor was finishing up the facades. Twenty years later the scaffolding is still in place; the facades are still unfinished...


The Earth is not my mother. Here’s why...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
One of the most disturbing things about the final document from the Amazonian Synod is the repeated and unchallenged reference to “Mother Earth.” In the desire to “inculturate the gospel” the synod organizers are infecting the Catholic faith with a religious concept which has always been incontrovertibly pagan and which the Christian faith has always steadfastly resisted...


Those martyrs who don’t make the news — a testimony from Burkina Faso...
Sandro Magister
The killing of Islamic State head Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi does not by any means allow the letting down of one’s guard on the aggressiveness of the countless armed units that take their inspiration from Islamist fundamentalism. Aid to the Church in Need, the foundation of pontifical right engaged in supporting persecuted Christians all over the world...

It's time for journalists to ask: What has happened to the Vatican press office?
Clemente Lisi
Let’s start with a loaded question. But it’s a questions that journalists really need to ask, because of trends during recent events in Catholic life. So here goes: Is the Vatican’s press office helping to push a progressive agenda that could forever change the Catholic church? Here’s the background: The Pan-Amazonian Synod that ended over a week ago wasn’t without controversy...
