Married Priests - Matthew Pinto

Why are priests not allowed to Marry?   Read more...

Mary and the Moslems - Fulton J. Sheen

Mary is for the Moslems the true Sayyida, or Lady. The only possible serious rival to her in their creed would be Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed himself. But after the death of Fatima, Mohammed wrote: "Thou shalt be the most blessed of all the women in Paradise, after Mary." In a variant of the text, Fatima is made to say: "I surpass all the women, except Mary."  Read more...

Mary, Holy Mother - Scott Hahn

There is probably nothing more disturbing to Protestants than the profound devotion which Catholics have for the Blessed Virgin Mary.   Read more...

Mere Spirituality - Donald DeMarco

“I believe in spirituality, not religion,” says TV’s Bill Maher, as he punctuates the “R” word with a sneer. He speaks for many. But mere spirituality, unprotected by a sound religion, will marry itself to whatever is in the neighborhood. And the first thing lurking in the neighborhood is usually the ego.   Read more...

Mere Theism: The Case for God - Mark Shea

Mark Shea says that belief in the existence of God is eminently reasonable.  Read more...

Miracles - Father Dwight Longnecker

Catholics are people who live quite easily with the possibility of miracles, while not being that impressed by them.  Read more...

Missing Mass for No Reason - Rev. William Saunders

I was visiting relatives over Easter, and sadly they do not attend Mass. I went to Mass, and reminded them that missing Mass was a mortal sin. They said, "Oh, that was in the old days. Missing Mass is no longer a mortal sin." What do you say? Please give me some ammunition.  Read more...

Mission Britannia. The Sun Shines in Glasgow - Sandro Magister

The journey of Benedict XVI begins in Scotland. The meeting with the queen. The Mass with the people. A celebration of faith in the kingdom of the incredulous. With a prologue on the scandal of pedophilia.  Read more...

Monasteries and Madrassas: Five Myths About Christianity, Islam, and the Middle Ages - H.W. Crocker III

Does Islam need a Reformation? Not unless you think it would benefit from additional dollops of Puritanism; further encouragement to smash altars, stained glass, and other forms of “idolatry”; prodding to ban riotous celebrations like Christmas and Easter; and support for fundamentalist Islamic schools that insist on sola Korana and sola Sunnah.  Read more...

Mushy Christianity - Michael Novak

One of the greatest of recent seductions by that wily devil Screwtape -- perfectly fitted to the times -- is to puff a tiny sugar crystal of Christianity into sweetish airy cotton candy. "IN-clusiveness!" he will insist. "Christianity is about nothing if not IN-clusiveness."   Read more...

My Journey out of the Lefebvre Schism - Envoy Magazine

If you’re a Catholic who’s faithful to the Church’s teaching Magisterium, you’ve probably met up with followers of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre’s 1988 schism, known as the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). They’re filled with devotion to the Blessed Mother, extremely conservative with regard to most moral issues afflicting the Western world today, and quite reverent before the Blessed Sacrament during their old Latin liturgies. In short, on the surface, adherents to Archbishop Lefebvre’s schism appear to be devout Catholics.  Read more...

My Path to Rome - Ian Hunter

The story of my conversion is the story of four men: Pope John Paul II, my father (albeit, an unwitting guide), C. S. Lewis, and Malcolm Muggeridge. It is the story of the Church's decision to publish a comprehensive Catechism of the Christian faith, and of a priest willing to go beyond the requirements of his office to fetch one lost sheep out of the wilderness. It is the story of faithful Catholics who prayed. And above all, first, last, and always, it is the same old story that it always is – a story of God's grace and forgiveness and love. Deo gratiasRead more...

My Take: Why Christians should pray for Christopher Hitchens - Father Robert Barron

I think it's fair to say that Hitchens is playing today the role that another brilliant Englishman, Bertrand Russell, played nearly a century ago, namely that of religion's public enemy No. 1.  Read more...

Myth 1: Atheists Are Smarter - Father Thomas D. Williams, L.C.

It is a common myth of our day, not surprisingly propagated by atheists, that religious believers are undereducated folk who have abandoned the use of reason in favor of blind faith.   Read more...

Myth 2: Religion Does More Harm Than Good - Father Thomas D. Williams, LC

In their attacks on God and religion, the neo-atheist authors such as Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris are especially vehement in their accusations concerning the effects of religion on the public order.  Read more...

Myth Become Fact - Mark Lowery

One need not accept the historicity of the Gospels on blind faith. It is eminently reasonable to believe that in Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem, the deepest yearnings of mankind, expressed in so many various mythological modes, have been fulfilled.  Read more...

Myth No. 4: Jesus Didn’t Found the Church - Father Thomas D. Williams, LC

The neo-atheist authors attack the foundations of Christianity as well as its doctrines, in an attempt to undermine both its historical roots and its internal consistency.  Read more...

Myth No. 5: Atheist Aid - Father Thomas D. Williams, LC

Atheists often claim to be "just as moral" as religious believers.  Read more...

Myth No.3: Religion Is Opposed to Science - Father Thomas D. Williams, LC

Navigating Today's Insane Educational System - J. Budziszewski

Nazis and Church Locked Horns Early - Zenit

While the Nazi regime is most often identified with anti-Semitism and the systemic murder of some 6 million Jews, Hitler's regime was also responsible for creating untold numbers of Christian martyrs.  Read more...

NFP: The Myth of the “Contraceptive Mentality” - Father Ryan Erlenbush

It should be clear that a couple who uses (or even misuses) natural family planning will never be in danger of a falling into a contraceptive mentality.   Read more...

Nietzsche’s Deeper Truth - R.R. Reno

At the outset of On the Genealogy of Morals, Friedrich Nietzsche reports that his polemical book of pseudo-history, pseudo-anthropology, and pseudo-psychology is an exercise in knowing ourselves.  Read more...

No wise man, and no great artist, leaves God out - Paul Johnson

I can perfectly well understand why someone should be an agnostic. But to be an atheist — to deny flatly and without qualification the existence of God — is to me wholly unsympathetic.  Read more...
