Legatus suspends nearly $1 million in donations to the Holy See


Abortion will end when it loses its cool...
Carrie Gress
For most of human history, the killing of other human beings was most often soldier against soldier in combat. With the exception of civil wars and familial conflicts, strangers were killing strangers. This all changed with the arrival of Second Wave feminism. Suddenly, abortion was what the cool girls were doing. Almost overnight...


Cupich denies he and Wuerl hatched rival plan before Baltimore...


I want, before I die, to see bishops with scars from the wolves they wrestled to the ground...
Anthony Esolen
“Do you not know,” says Saint Paul to the lax and factious Corinthians, “that we shall judge angels?” They had ceded to the unbelievers around them the authority to judge a controversy between Christian brothers. But Jesus says, “Judge not, lest you be judged,” because the criterion by which we measure others will be our measure too...


The other Gettysburg Address you probably haven’t heard of...


“If it be your will, O God, glorify our beloved Sister Thea...”...
Rocco Palmo
Lest it wasn't already clear, Church, Plenary Week always takes a bit of recovery and time to process... given this one, all the more. While the scribe's putting the 600-piece jigsaw back together, however, what's arguably the lone "God-moment" born of these last days – by far the meeting's happiest turn – is already springing to life: later this morning...


Melinda Henneberger’s cri de coeur is a scorching rebuke to Catholic bishops...
Elizabeth Scalia
After the Vatican ordered US Bishops to refrain from voting on episcopal correctives to their failures on the sex abuse front (a February bishop’s gathering in Rome will now address it), American bishops left their bi-annual conference with little to show for their time beyond approving a the promotion of the excellent Sister Thea Bowman’s cause for sainthood...

The Final Judgment: Readings for the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time...
John Bergsma
“Tempus fugit,” the Romans used to say. “Time flies.” It’s hard to believe that we are already at the second-to-last Sunday of the liturgical year. Where has the year gone? How can it be so close to the end already? Yet these feelings are very appropriate for Mass we will celebrate this Sunday, whose readings encourage us to count time carefully...


After Baltimore, here’s where things stand on the sexual abuse crisis...
John Allen
Now that the dust has settled on the U.S. bishops’ fall meeting in Baltimore - which was keenly anticipated in the run-up, and which turned out to be massively anti-climactic in the aftermath - it’s time to take preliminary stock of where things stand in the bishops’ efforts to respond to the clerical sexual abuse crisis. The agenda for the meeting was waylaid late afternoon on Sunday...

A hopeful sign amid the U.S. bishops’ failed Fall meeting...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
The most dramatic meeting of the U.S. bishops since 2002 ended in failure. Except that it did not entirely fail. It may in fact have signaled a critical turning point on the road to reform. The failure was evident. For months the leadership of the U.S. bishops have declared that the November plenary assembly was the time when concrete actions regarding accountability for bishops would be taken...

I would walk 500 miles, and I would walk 500 more...
Rick Becker
Katharine, my preteen, sent me a link to a song she’d happened across. “It’s my new jam,” she wrote, and I eagerly clicked on it to listen. What dad of a preteen wouldn’t? Imagine my surprise when Kath’s new jam turned out to be an ad for a cleaning product. The accompanying video was fun and eye-catching, and there was no doubt that the tune was catchy as well...

The Book of Revelation: Regardless of what you think is going on, this is what is really going on...
Msgr. Charles Pope
In daily Mass we are currently reading selections from the Book of Revelation—not a bad choice as the end of the liturgical year swiftly approaches. While many suppose that the Book of Revelation is merely about the end of the world, it is about far more; it is also about what is happening right now. It was not written only for the end of the ages but for all ages...

Pope Francis dines with 1,500 poor at the Vatican...
Edward Pentin
Pope Francis’ enjoyed a Sunday lunch today of lasagna, chicken nuggets, mashed potato and tiramisu with 1,500 people in need, less well-off, and poor (see photos below). The event in the St. Paul VI Hall was part of today’s World Day of the Poor, an annual observance Pope Francis established in 2016 at the end of the Jubilee Year of Mercy...

Would Jesus recognize Catholic worship?
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
You’ve seen pictures of splendid traditional Catholic worship. The clergy and servers are robed, the incense is billowing, the church building is magnificent. Would Jesus recognize such worship? The assumption is that Jesus is a simple, wandering preacher — a rustic carpenter from Nazareth. Jesus is the equivalent of Pastor Bob from the Backwoods Bible Church who has studied for two years at Buckboard Bible College and then set up his little church in an old shop front...

The desire for human respect can lead people to hell...
Jason Craig
Hell is an uncomfortable subject to say the least. It is not a perfect motivation for loving God either – He wants us to trust Him as a Father and return to Him, not to merely flee from the fear of eternal torment. Yet “the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity [for] those who die in a state of mortal... (Catechism of the Catholic Church...
