John Paul the Great - Fr. William Saunders

Many have been calling our dear Pope John Paul II "the great." Have any other popes had this title?  Read more...

Justice, Fortitude, Temperance - Fr. William Saunders

Last week, Straight Answers addressed the topic of the cardinal virtues — those "hinge" virtues that are the foundation of all virtues. Having examined the virtue of prudence, we now turn to justice, fortitude and temperance.  Read more...

Justice, Wisdom, Courage, and Moderation: The Four Cardinal Virtues - PETER KREEFT

These four cardinal virtues are not the only virtues, but they are the cardes, the "hinges", on which all the other virtues turn.  Read more...

Kakure Kirishitan - Patrick Downes

A faith, introduced to Japan by St. Francis Xavier, then hidden for 400 years, resurfaces on film before it disappears forever.  Read more...

Keeping Relics in Perspective - Fr. William Saunders

Last week, you mentioned that relics of the saints are traditionally placed in the altar. I also remember that when our church recently dedicated a new altar, relics were placed in it before the bishop consecrated it. Could you please address the topic of relics in an article?  Read more...

Kids and Holiness: Making Lent Meaningful to Children - Cyndi Montanaro

How might we apply the three penitential principles of Lent (fasting, almsgiving, and prayer) to our school-age children’s lives? What can we do to teach them (not force them) to do penance for the love of Christ?  Read more...

Knowing by Faith - Deacon Douglas McManaman

Faith is a mode of knowing, one that is not contrary to human reason.   Read more...

Knowledge and Purity - Deacon Douglas McManaman

Laetare Sunday: Rejoice and be Glad - Father George W. Rutler

Sinful anger loses its temper, and righteous anger uses it.  Read more...

Last Words - Scott Hahn

Prayer is necessary, but it's not easy. "[F]or we do not know how to pray as we ought" (Rom 8:26). We know how to pray in a superficial way, but not as we ought.  Read more...

Latin Days Are Here Again? - George Weigel

Pope Benedict wants to revive the Latin mass in Roman Catholic worship. But what exactly does that mean?  Read more...

Lead Us Not into Temptation - Sean Innerst

In this month’s installment of our liturgical Bible study, we come to the readings for the Lenten season. The 40 days of Lent are meant to replicate in the life of the Church the 40-day fast of Jesus recounted in the Gospel reading for the First Sunday of Lent. That reminds us of the operating principle of our Bible study: Jesus Christ is the central, inner meaning of the whole of salvation history.  Read more...

Lead Us Not into Temptation - Father William P. Saunders

In the Our Father, we pray, "And lead us not into temptation." This sounds a little odd, because why would God lead us into temptation?  Read more...

Lead Us Not into Temptation . . . - Scott Hahn

The Lord's Prayer is like a marathon course whose last mile winds up a steep hill. Or it's like a Himalayan mountain whose ultimate peak crowns a sheer, vertical rock face.  Read more...

Leading Students to Christ - EDWARD P. SRI

In his book The Mystery We Proclaim (Our Sunday Visitor, 1993), Msgr. Francis Kelly offers a five-step plan that provides catechists with a helpful framework for every time they teach the faith.  Read more...

Learning to love bravely - Doug McManaman

My friend's attitude towards policing is an accurate image of what our attitude in the spiritual life ought to be.   Read more...

Leavened or Unleavened Bread? - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

About a year ago, I attended Mass at a parish I had never been to before. During Communion, I noticed that the host was made of leavened bread. I thought Communion hosts were only supposed to be made from unleavened bread. Could you explain the Church’s teaching on this matter?  Read more...

Lent and Fasting - Grace MacKinnon

Dear Grace, Someone asked me with a question about why we have Lent and also why we do not fast for the entire forty days. Could you please explain the message behind Lent and why we do not fast every single day of the forty days?  Read more...

Lent: A Call to Purification - Fr. Leonard M. Puech

Lent is the annual call to purify our souls for the great feast of Easter, figure of the eternal Easter, for which the soul must be perfectly pure.  Read more...

Lent: Purification from Natural Motives - Fr. Leonard M. Puech

Man is not a pure spirit. All his actions do not spring from his spiritual nature. A good part — if not all — comes from his animal instincts, and often these instincts go to excess, passing the bounds of reason.   Read more...

Lenten Music - ERIC M. JOHNSON

Few people today would think of Lent as a season for liturgical music. This is all very regrettable because when you look back at musical history, Lent has been an enormous source of inspiration for composers.  Read more...

Do pretzels really have anything to do with Lent?  Read more...
