The Conquest of the Bride - Hans Urs von Balthasar

My kingdom is invisible, but I want to establish you, my Bride, before the eyes of men so visibly that no one will be able to overlook you.  Read more...

The Conversion of Elizabeth Ann Seton: First American-born Saint - Father Charles P. Connor

In Elizabeth Ann Seton, we have a saint for our times. In Elizabeth Ann Seton, we have a woman of faith, for a time of doubt and uncertainty . . . a woman of love for a time of coldness and division . . . a woman of hope for a time of crisis and discouragement.  Read more...

The Cosmic Effects of Jesus' Resurrection - Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J.

Have we become so familiar with the Christian affirmation of Jesus’ Resurrection from the dead that we are no longer aware of the cosmic implications of that assertion?  Read more...

The Cost of Loving God - Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

The Council after fifty years - Father George William Rutler

The Council was almost a synonym for newness. It is less so now, after fifty years.  Read more...

The Cross - Pope Benedict XVI

Peter Seewald: "We are used to thinking of suffering as something we try to avoid at all costs. And there is nothing that many societies get more angry about than the Christian idea that one should bear with pain, should endure suffering, should even sometimes give oneself up to it, in order thereby to overcome it. 'Suffering', John Paul II believes, 'is a part of the mystery of being human.' Why is this?"  Read more...

The Cross of Christ the Measure of the World - Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman

A great number of men live and die without reflecting at all upon the state of things in which they find themselves.  Read more...

The Crucifixion - Venerable John Henry Cardinal Newman

Unless we have a true love of Christ, we are not His true disciples; and we cannot love Him unless we have heartfelt gratitude to Him; and we cannot duly feel gratitude, unless we feel keenly what He suffered for us.   Read more...

The Cruelty of Hedonism - Anthony Esolen

A hectic competition lies at the heart of the hedonist’s life.   Read more...

The Culture of “Dissent” - Michael Novak

The reason the American Church today stands accused of hypocrisy is that it has been teaching one thing, while a small but significant body of its priests including some bishops has been flagrantly violating that teaching. How can people who studied long and prayed hard before taking vows turn in such a direction, with a full-scale ideology to rationalize it? How can that happen? It could not have happened without a culture of "dissent," a culture that has, at its heart, a teaching of contempt for "Rome."  Read more...

The Dating of the Last Supper - Pope Benedict XVI

The problem of dating Jesus' Last Supper arises from the contradiction on this point between the Synoptic Gospels, on the one hand, and Saint John's Gospel, on the other.   Read more...

The Death of Jesus - Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J.

The Debate Over Incorruptibility - Fr. William Saunders

It was reported that the remains of Pope John XXIII were incorrupt, but there was a debate over whether this was a sign of sanctity or simply due to regular preservation methods. Could you please explain the significance of this further?  Read more...

The Definition of a Gentleman - Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman

The Devil, the Fallen Angel - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

If an ordained priest does not believe in transubstantiation, do the communicants receive the Body and Blood of Christ?  Read more...

The Dormition of Mary - Fr. William Saunders

I tuned to a television station for the Rosary. When the priest reached the 4th decade, "the Assumption," they showed scenes of a Church in Israel named, "The Sleep of Mary." The Church includes a statue of Mary asleep and an empty tomb. I’ve never heard of the sleep of Mary — only that she went to heaven "in toto." What is this "sleep of Mary"?  Read more...

The Eastern Cross - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

I was visiting an Orthodox Church, and I have always wondered why their cross has, three bars with the bottom one slanted. Do you know?  Read more...

The Eastern Rite Church - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

As are many Latin Rite Catholics, I am a bit ignorant about the Eastern Rite Church. What is the differences between the rites? Can Latin Rite Catholics fulfill their Sunday obligation by attending an Eastern Rite Mass? Can Latin Rite Catholics receive Holy Communion in an Eastern Rite Catholic Mass? Is the Eastern Rite Catholic Church the same as the Orthodox church?  Read more...

The Effectiveness of the Catechist Getting "Soaked in Scripture" - STEPHEN PATTON

Most of us catechists want to do our work well, and are open to learning new and better ways to do it. But the best way of all is also the oldest and, unfortunately, often the most neglected.  Read more...
