The Splendor of the Catholic Church - Scott Hahn

Sometimes we see the Church in less than holy conditions. We see ourselves, we see other people, we see priests and sometimes we see bishops whose lifestyles are not up to the Gospel standard. Yet as Chesterton said, "The Catholic faith even when watered down can still boil the world to rags." The Catholic Church is strong with divine power.

The Ten Commandments - Grace MacKinnon

Dear Grace, My son and I were discussing the importance of the Ten Commandments and how they are to be used as a guide. He says they are part of the Old Testament and therefore we need not focus that much on them. His attitude towards them is that they are just a lot of "Do Nots." Can you help me explain why God gave us these commandments and why they are still important for us today?  Read more...

The world needs a redeemer - Father Raymond J. de Souza

After every act of creation, the Book of Genesis sings the refrain: "And God saw that it was good."

Thoughts on a New Knighthood - The Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.

There is no neutral ground. C.S. Lewis once said that Christianity is a "fighting religion." He meant that Christian discipleship has always been – and remains – a struggle against the evil within and outside ourselves.   Read more...

Three Simple Truths - Thomas C. Reeves

Three statements I often hear and read, especially from leftist sources, need brief clarification. All three are essentially about the same vital issue.  Read more...

Thy rod and thy staff - Jonathan Kay

Atheism has been an accepted creed in the West since the French Revolution. But surely its champions weren't always this obnoxious.  Read more...

Tools for Thinking Sensibly About Scripture - Mark Shea

For some folks, it takes a lot to dispel the myth of the hyper-controlling Church that only permits Bible study among the faithful after the insertion of the Vatican Orbital Mind Control Laser Platform chip in the frontal lobe of the brain.  Read more...
