Holy Water - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

A Protestant friend came with me to Mass last Sunday and asked about the Holy Water fonts and why we make the sign of the cross with it when we enter and leave the Church. What answer would you give to her?  Read more...

Homily of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI - Pope Benedict XVI

As we listen to this Gospel passage, it is worth going a little deeper, not only to understand Jesus and Mary better, but also to learn from Mary the right way to pray. Mary does not really ask something of Jesus: she simply says to him: They have no wine (Jn 2:3).  Read more...

Homosexuality - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Homosexuality and the Church - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

The recent Vatican decision concerning Father Nugent and Sr. Jeannine Gramick stopping their work with homosexual persons has caused some publicity in the Post.

Hospitality - Donald DeMarco

Hospitality, for most of us, is something that belongs to the domain of etiquette. We usually do not think of it as a moral virtue. But when hospitality is animated by a genuine concern for others and is mixed with a generous dollop of social justice, there can be little doubt not only that hospitality can be a moral virtue, but that its embodiment in human behavior can be an inspiration.  Read more...

How are We Saved? - JEFFREY MIRUS

How are we saved? The best way to know is to look at the teaching of the Church, which Christ instituted to safeguard the doctrine that He gave to the apostles, and which was completed through the revelation of the Holy Spirit to the apostles after Jesus’ ascension. We cannot pick and choose what we believe about faith and salvation.  Read more...

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...

How Many Times a Day May One Receive Communion? - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

How many times can a person receive Holy Communion each day? I attended the Chrism Mass this past Holy Thursday, and then the Mass in the evening at my parish. I received Holy Communion both times. A friend, though, said that I could only receive once a day.  Read more...

How the Sea Can Help You Pray - Peter Kreeft

How to Address Church Officials - Father William Saunders

How to Explain the Importance of Praying Before the Blessed Sacrament – - Doug McManaman

I’ve been teaching high school for 20 years now, and reflecting back on those years, I can say that the easiest moments in teaching, the times when students were the most quiet and well behaved, were those times when I was teaching on the Eucharist.  Read more...

How to Keep Your Children Catholic - Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

This is surely an unusual subject for today’s conference, "How To Keep Your Children Catholic." The subject may be unusual but it is desperately important. I would like to briefly address myself to three questions, expressed in three words, Why? What? and How?  Read more...

How to Live in the Presence of God - Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

The Savior is described by St. Luke as telling His followers to pray continually. It is a universal duty applying to all believers. It means that we are really commanded both to pray always, and forbidden to cease doing so. What can the Holy Spirit possibly mean?  Read more...
