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.

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

Nazis and Church Locked Horns Early - Zenit

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

On Preserving Our Catholic Faith - Archbishop Timothy Dolan

In the end, of course, our challenge is not to change the teachings of Jesus and His Church to conform to our whims, but to change our lives to conform to His teaching.  Read more...

On Spiritual Warfare - Peter Kreeft
