The Key that Fits the Lock, Part One - Anthony Esolen

One day a friend and I were discussing the fruitful relationship between faith and reason. He said that he held the Catholic faith because of, literally, "everything," or as I like to call it, The Everything.   Read more...

The Key that Fits the Lock, Part Seven - Anthony Esolen

Let's take a look at the story of Noah, alongside the account of the incident at Sodom.  Read more...

The Key That Fits the Lock, Part Six - Anthony Esolen

And the proud men in the valley of Shinar said, "Go to, let us build a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the earth." (Gen. 11:4)  Read more...

The Key That Fits the Lock, Part Ten - Anthony Esolen

There are two things to remember about Abraham, as he stands upon Mount Moriah, knife in hand. Abraham is a receiver of gifts. And Abraham is obedient.  Read more...

The Key That Fits the Lock, Part Thirteen - Anthony Esolen

Before I leave Father Abraham, I'd like to dwell upon what anyone familiar with heroic literature would consider the oddest feature of his story.  Read more...

The Key that Fits the Lock, Part Three - Anthony Esolen

On the Fall of Man, recounted in but a few verses in the third chapter of Genesis, one might well fill many shelves full of books, so rich is the mythic presentation of what Newman called the aboriginal calamity, a disastrous turning away from God wherein we are all involved.   Read more...

The Key That Fits the Lock, Part Twelve - Anthony Esolen

"I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed." (Gen. 22:17-18)  Read more...

The Key that Fits the Lock, Part Two - Anthony Esolen

On the sixth day of creation, God made the "beasts of the earth according to their kinds, and cattle, and everything that creepeth on the earth," and He saw that it was good. But the day's work was not done.   Read more...

The last acceptable prejudice - Michael Coren

It was as predictable as an Orangeman putting on his sash or a latte coffee-drinker buying but not actually reading the latest risible volume from one of the new, inflated atheists.   Read more...

The Limits of Secularism - Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks

Religion survives because it answers three questions that every reflective person must ask.   Read more...

The Locus of Hatred, Part 1 - Anthony Esolen

It is a commonplace among our ruling class that religion is irrational and inherently divisive, fostering hatred of one group for another.   Read more...

The Male Priesthood: The Argument From Sacred Tradition - Mark Lowery

In May of 1994 John Paul II promulgated “Ordinatio Sacerdotalis” which declared definitely that the Catholic priesthood is reserved for males. Hence, the question “Why can there not be women priests?” has now been answered in a definitive way. While Catholics are not to question the teaching of the Magisterium on this matter, the time is ripe for all interested to come to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the Church’s teaching.  Read more...

The Mother of the Son: The Case for Marian Devotion - Mark Shea

It has to be one of the strangest things in the world: So many Christians who love Jesus with all their hearts recoil in fear at the mention of His mother’s name, while many who do love her find themselves tongue-tied when asked to explain why.   Read more...

The Myth of Religious Violence - Benjamin Wiker

One of the enduring myths of the secular state is that religion is so dangerous, so volatile, so likely to burst into conflagrations of violence, that the only protection we have from societal destruction is the erection of a wall that separates religion from the state.  Read more...

The Nature, Power & Limitations of Apologetics - Peter Kreeft & Ronald K. Tacelli

We are writing this book because we have been besieged with requests for it.   Read more...

The Passion of Pope Benedict. Six Accusations, One Question - Sandro Magister

Pedophilia is only the latest weapon aimed against Joseph Ratzinger. And each time, he is attacked where he most exercises his leadership role. One by one, the critical points of this pontificate.  Read more...

The Pope in Portugal - David Warren

He has made a headline already; and typically by saying something that is a commonplace of Catholic belief, to astounded media reporters. On the plane from Rome he mentioned that the worst persecutor of the Catholic Church is her own propensity to sin. Her worst enemy is inside, not outside.  Read more...

The Pope Strikes Back - Theodore Dalrymple

It is a nice question as to whether a true or a false accusation provokes more outrage in the accused.   Read more...

The Power of the Religious Habit: A True Story - John H. Ballentine

Sister Z herself says that her habit is a daily reminder of her vow to God. Since a religious habit is a sacramental, it is an outward sign disposing the wearer (and others who see it) to receive graces.  Read more...

The price of easy money - Father Raymond J. de Souza

The good news for hockey fans in Pittsburgh came last week not from the hockey team, but from the Pittsburgh Gaming Task Force.  Read more...

The Problem of Evil - Peter Kreeft

If God is so good, why is his world so bad? If an all-good, all-wise, all-loving, all-just, and all-powerful God is running the show, why does he seem to be doing such a miserable job of it? Why do bad things happen to good people?   Read more...

The problem with being good - Father Dwight Longenecker

The idea that being good is enough is the most persistent and pernicious heresy within Catholicism.   Read more...

The Protestant Achilles' Heel - Tim Staples

Sola Scriptura was the central doctrine and foundation for all I believed when I was Protestant.    Read more...

The Real Issues of the Reformation - James Hitchcock

An informed person, asked what lay at the root of Martin Luther’s theology, immediately answers, “Justification by faith alone.” Logically, and in Luther’s own mind, this is true. But it is questionable to what extent this was the actual driving force of the Reformation. The doctrine of justification is subtle indeed, provoking fierce arguments even among people who ostensibly share the same beliefs. It is likely that relatively few people in the sixteenth century really understood the issue, much less was it the crucial question for most of them. What then was?  Read more...

The Real Problem With Darwinism - Dinesh D'Souza

The real problem with Darwinism in the public school classroom is that it is often taught in an atheist way.   Read more...
