I have a question about the possible war with Iraq. Several leaders of our Church have spoken out on this issue, including Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and Bishop Wilton Gregory. What would be the moral teaching of our Church concerning war?  Read more...

Praying to Our Advocates in Heaven - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Pre-Marital Sex - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Recently, I read that a certain Archdiocese is no longer going to ask couples who are cohabitating - living together - to separate. Am I missing something, or has the Church stopped teaching that premarital sex is wrong?  Read more...

Preparing for First Penance - Fr. William Saunders

My child is preparing for First Penance. The director of religious education at my parish said that a person only has to go to confession when he has a mortal sin. I know children that have not gone to confession since First Penance. I was taught that a person had to make an “Easter Duty” of going to confession and Holy Communion. What is the straight answer?  Read more...

Prudence - Donald DeMarco

Pope Pius XII acted against the Nazis, but he did so prudently. Prudence is a virtue closely allied with wisdom. It is usually best appreciated in its results rather than in its execution.  Read more...

Prudence: Mother of All Virtues - Fr. William Saunders

I keep hearing about the importance of virtue and being virtuous, but no one explains what virtue is. Why don’t you do a column about this?  Read more...

Psychics and Witches - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Recently, I have been seeing more ads on television about psychic counselors. Also, there is a TV show about Sabrina, the teenage witch. How should we as Christians be relating to these issues?  Read more...

Purgatory and Prayer for the Dead - Fr. Leonard M. Puech, O.F.M.

After the feast of All Saints comes All Souls, when the Church invites us to pray for the faithful departed, that, released from Purgatory and fully purified, they may be admitted to the eternal bliss of heaven. Because the existence of Purgatory and the prayers for the dead are rejected by Protestants, it may be useful to explain why we hold both as Catholics.  Read more...

Purgatory: 'Cleansing the Lens' - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

I have been asked what is the basis for my belief in Purgatory since it is not specifically mentioned in the Bible.  Read more...

Receiving Communion (Part 1) - Father William Saunders

I was surprised to see a picture of Sen. John Kerry receiving communion at an African Methodist Episcopal Church in Boston. I thought Catholics were not supposed to receive communion in other churches. But then again, knowing his pro-abortion stance, should he receive Holy Communion in the Catholic Church? Any comment?   Read more...

I was surprised to see a picture of Senator John Kerry receiving communion at an African Methodist Episcopal Church in Boston. I thought Catholics were not supposed to receive communion in other churches. But then again, knowing his pro-abortion stance, should he receive Holy Communion in the Catholic Church?

Receiving Communion More Than Once a Day - Fr. William Saunders

How many times can a person receive Holy Communion each day? I attended a wedding Mass in the morning and then went to the Saturday evening vigil Mass, but I was not sure whether I should have received the second time.  Read more...

Receiving Holy Communion - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

We have always been taught that when you receive holy Communion, we are to consume it all and not to break it. A few weeks ago at Mass, I saw a lady receive Communion, then turn her back from the priest and break it and give part of it to her young child. I didn't know what to do. What should I have done? Can you help?  Read more...

Recent Martyrs of India - Robert Royal

Pope John Paul II visited New Delhi in November 1999 to promulgate a special document, Ecclesia in Asia (“The Church in Asia”), which lays out a vision of that continent and the Church’s future there for the new millennium.  Read more...
