Good Pope, Bad Pope: Their Lives, Our Lessons - Mike Aquilina

The popes whose stories you'll read here show us how Christ kept his promise to his bride, the Church, not only in her health but also in her sickness. That's why, even in its darkest moments, the story of the papacy is a story of triumph. And that's why it's worth knowing these twelve popes.  Read more...

Great God, It’s the Great God Debate - John O'Callaghan

Handling Issues of Conscience in the Academy - J. Budziszewski

One doesn’t become confused about wrong and therefore start committing it; rather one commits wrong, knows it is wrong, and therefore finds a way to confuse and reassure himself about it. My personal conviction is that half of the issues of conscience in the Academy have their origin right here.  Read more...

Hell - Peter Kreeft

The hell with hell! says the modern mind. Of all Christianity's teachings, hell is certainly the least popular. Non-Christians ignore it, weak Christians excuse it, and anti-Christians attack it.  Read more...

Helping Jehovah's Witnesses Get the Picture - Joel Peters

Jehovah's Witnesses want you to live forever with them in paradise on earth. To entice you into accepting their offer of a "free home Bible study", they will show you brightly colored pictures of idyllic garden scenes, beautiful lakeside homes and children romping with lions. The Jehovah's Witness will ask: "Wouldn't you like to live in conditions like these?"  Read more...

Heroes and Saints - Donald DeMarco

How Does the Weakness of the Cross Make Us Strong? - Peter Kreeft

"When I am weak, then I am strong"; "power made perfect in weakness." Such verses are often cited as key to spiritual growth, but do we really understand what they are talking about? Can anyone ever understand?  Read more...
