Raised from the dead - Father Raymond J. de Souza

Reading the Word Sotto Voce - Deacon Douglas McManaman

Reading the word of God in the context of a Mass is radically different from public speaking.   Read more...

Real Americans - Mark Brumley

What impact will Catholicism have on America? These "American" Saints present a model for bringing holiness to American culture.  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...

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...

Rejoice - Father George W. Rutler

Joy is more than happiness if you take happiness to mean feeling good. Joy is a fact beyond feeling, and the fact is the actual possession of what is good.   Read more...

Rejoice Jerusalem - Father George William Rutler

It is ironic that the scintillating Graeco-Syrian Saint Luke was martyred, according to tradition in Boeotia, a humid and swampy part of central Greece whose people were said to be not interested in philosophy or much of anything beyond their uneventful daily lives.   Read more...

Religion big part of all sports for many athletes, including gymnasts - Brent Miller

Religion. The mere utterance of the word sparks controversy. However, religion is a big part of some people's lives.  Read more...

Religious Diversity Deserves a Place in the Public Square - JOHN LEO

The traditional ACLU belief system—that the no-establishment clause must be read as a mandate to cleanse the public square of religion is based mostly on the notion that religion is divisive and toxic, something that lawyers and enlightened judges must work to protect the people from. This belief system has been dominant in the courts for 40 years, though its support among the populace has always been minimal.  Read more...

Religious Freedom in a Time of War - Richard John Neuhaus

An essay by the estimable Samuel Huntington in The Influence of Faith recounts the ways in which, for more and more governments in the world, religion is the chief source of, or threat to, their legitimacy. Contrary to secularist expectations in the West, we are witnessing what is aptly described as the desecularization of world history. States seek to control religion, if necessary through repression and persecution, precisely because religion is becoming more important. Christianity in particular is, around the world and in almost all its forms, the carrier of democracy and political liberalization.   Read more...

Remembering in November - Father George William Rutler

The autumnal days of November, with the falling leaves and early darkness, are reminders of the edge where time meets eternity.   Read more...

Remembrance of Past Mercies - John Henry Cardinal Newman

"I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which Thou hast showed unto Thy servant." (Gen. 32:10) The spirit of humble thankfulness for past mercies which these words imply, is a grace to which we are especially called in the Gospel.  Read more...

Renewing the Church and Her Mission in a Year of Faith - The Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap

My comments today will be simple. I want to focus on just three points.   Read more...

Repenting of the Failure of Parish-Based Catechesis - Barbara Nicolosi

It's long past time for the Catholic Church in the United States to acknowledge and address the fact that in many, possibly most, dioceses, parish-based catechesis has been an abject failure.  Read more...

Repercussions of Suicide - Fr. William Saunders

The son of my neighbor recently committed suicide. He wasn’t Catholic, but I wondered if the Church still taught that suicide is a mortal sin and if a person who commits suicide could have a funeral Mass.  Read more...

Responding to Terrorists - Fr. William Saunders

With the awful tragedy this week, many have called for military reprisals against the terrorists. How do we respond as Christians?  Read more...

Restoring a Church tradition - Michael Coren

It’s seldom the case that Christian liturgy makes the front pages of the international press.  Read more...

Resurrection Means a Glorious Existence - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

In the Apostles Creed we say, "I believe in the resurrection of the body." I have never really understood what this means. Will we have the same body? Please explain.  Read more...

Resurrection of the Dead - Fr. William Saunders

At Easter, we celebrate that Jesus rose from the dead. In the creed, we believe in the "resurrection of the dead." Could you better explain these beliefs?  Read more...

Rich and Humble Temporal Means within the Church - Father Tadeusz Dajczer

Jacques Maritain divides temporal means which may be used for spiritual ends into two categories: rich temporal means and humble temporal means (cf. J. Maritain, On the Philosophy of History, 1957, p. 70).  Read more...

Roman Catholicism - Fr. John Hardon, S.J.

Not the least difficulty in writing about Catholicism is the problem of isolating the subject. The history of the Catholic Church is so closely woven into Christian civilization that the one cannot be told fairly without the other.  Read more...
