Go From Your Country and See - Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa

The theme of the meditations that the Papal Household preacher, Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, gave to John Paul II and his aides in the Roman Curia this Advent was: "For this is the will of God, your sanctification (1 Thessalonians 4:3): Reflections on Christian holiness in the light of the experience of Mother Teresa of Calcutta."  Read more...

Elderly people often think that some of their recollections are unimportant in the grand scheme of things.   Read more...

God Our Father - Kenneth Baker, S.J.

In the Christian tradition, we are accustomed to call God our “Father”. Jesus himself taught us to pray, “Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.”   Read more...

God's Calendar - Father George Rutler

Christmas celebrates the birth of the Second Person of the Holy Trinity, which is what Christmas is, though that may be beyond the grasp of many nice people gazing into the windows of Macy's and Lord & Taylor.   Read more...

Why does God give the moral law?   Read more...

God's ways are not our ways - Father George W. Rutler

In the forty days between the Resurrection and the Ascension, our Lord appeared to numerous individuals and to various groups, including some five hundred on one occasion, and at last to the group who witnessed his ascent to glory in a cloud of light.  Read more...

Going to Heaven - Grace McKinnon

Dear Grace, I come from a large Catholic family and some of us attend Mass every week. There are also those who never go, but they are not bad people. They are prayerful, but never attend church. What I want to know is, if they died in the state in which they are living, would they go to heaven even though they never attended church, yet lived as good people?  Read more...

Good Friday - Grace MacKinnon

Dear Grace, I have never understood why the day Jesus died a horrible, painful death on the Cross is called "Good Friday." Please tell me why we call it good.  Read more...

Gospel Authorship - Rev. William Saunders

With so much talk lately about the Gospels, I wonder, who wrote the Gospels and how do we know?  Read more...

Graciousness: a Cardinal Virtue - Donald DeMarco

Gratitude - Donald DeMarco

There can be no happiness without gratitude.   Read more...

Gratitude is the heart’s memory – A Thanksgiving Reflection - Father Thomas Rosica, CSB

Thankfulness is much more than saying “Thank you” because we have to. Thankfulness is a way to experience the world, a way to perceive, a way to be surprised.   Read more...

Growing in Virtue - Fr Augustine H.T. Tran

When you enter into the Basilica of St Peter in Vatican City, one of the first works of art that you notice off to the right is that of Michelangelo's famous Pietà, his depiction of the Blessed Mother holding our Lord after He has been taken down from the Cross. This sculpture was the only work of art that Michelangelo signed, and here's why.  Read more...

Guardian Angels - CHRISTINE J. MURRAY

The guardian angel simply has one task that has many facets — to lead the human to the Passion and Cross. Embracing the cross is the only way human beings reach heaven. He does this mainly through pricking our conscience so we can follow the will of God.  Read more...

Guide of Souls - Saint Padre Pio

Many books have been written on the life and works of Padre Pio, but Words of Light is not a book about what others think or say about him. Here, he speaks for himself. If you are interested in the complexities and challenges of contemporary faith, you will benefit from these short teachings, counsels, and recollections culled from some of Padre Pio's most personal writings.  Read more...

Hallowed Be Thy Name - Scott Hahn

Whenever we pray the Lord's Prayer, we acknowledge God's name as "hallowed" — that is, as holy or sanctified. But what do we mean by this? Do we mean what Jesus meant?  Read more...

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...

Hinduism - Fr. John Hardon, S.J.

Hinduism can better be described than defined. It is less a religion than a religious culture, and less creedal than ethical or racial.  Read more...

Holding Hands During the Lord's Prayer - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

In one of your previous columns, you addressed the reason for gestures at Mass. I am puzzled however by a seemingly new gesture: that of holding hands during the Lord's Prayer. I feel very uncomfortable doing it. I heard it is actually a violation of Canon Law because it assumes an intimacy or communion before the "real communion," the Eucharistic celebration. Why do pastor's allow it?  Read more...
