The Law - Tim Gray

The Pentateuch, or first five books of the Bible, is a mixture of narratives and laws. Quite often a series of laws will be sandwiched between narratives. If there is no integral relationship between the two, it would have made much more sense to put the law code after the covenant ceremony or even at the end of the Book of Exodus. But since this was not done, there must be some strategic reason for the juxtaposition of law and narrative, which happens frequently throughout the Pentateuch.  Read more...

The Lifetime Catholic Reading Plan - book review - JAY MCNALLY

The Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary - Fr. William Saunders

I have a tape with the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary on it that I use as a daily prayer aid. In the litany are some phrases I don’t get, like Tower of David, House of Gold, Ark of the Covenant, Tower of Ivory, Mystical Rose, Morning Star, and Star of the Sea. In this month of May, could you please explain them?  Read more...

The Lord of Heaven - Father George Rutler

As there would be no concept of darkness if all were light, no sense of vertical if all were horizontal, no notion of male if all were female, so would there be no intimation of separation from God if all were united with him.   Read more...

The Lord of History - Father George W. Rutler

Today was a crowded date in history.  Read more...

The Lord's Day - Grace MacKinnon

Dear Grace, Why did the Christian Church change the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday? As you well know, the Jewish people still recognize Saturday as their Sabbath.  Read more...

The Lord's Prayer - Fr. William Saunders

Recently a Protestant friend asked me why Catholics do not include, "For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, now and forever," at the end of the Our Father. I really do not know. Can you help me?  Read more...

The Magisterium's Imprimatur - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

I have often noticed in Catholic books "imprimatur" and "nihil obstat." What do these terms mean? Do they show that a book teaches what the Church teaches?  Read more...

The Making of a Cardinal: In person: Avery Dulles - Brian McGuire

Born into a devout and powerful Presbyterian family in 1918, he converted to the Catholic faith at Harvard and was ordained a Jesuit priest in 1956. Pope John Paul II plans to make him a cardinal Feb. 21, the first ever American theologian to be so honored. He spoke recently with Register staff writer Brian McGuire.  Read more...

The Making of a Modern Missionary - Joe Bollig

We think we know missionaries. They sport the tonsured look, wear Jesus sandals and do good in distant lands. But when you meet Sr. Barbara Schrader, you´ll realize that modern missionaries are nothing like that.  Read more...

The Man Mary Loved - National Catholic Register

The Church celebrates the feast of St. Joseph this week on Monday, March 19. This saint, often described as “the man closest to Christ,” has been the subject of lifelong devotion for Holy Cross Father Roland Gauthier.  Read more...

The Man of the cloth - Mary Jo Anderson

The first thing you notice is that the linen is so ordinary. An eggshell-colored rectangle of coarse linen, now dirty and discolored with blood, lymph and sweat, it is nonetheless a remarkable testament of the passion of Jesus Christ.  Read more...

The Marian Paradigm for Welcoming the Word - Father Thomas Rosica, CSB

On Tuesday afternoon when Carl Anderson, supreme knight of the Knights of Columbus, and papally appointed auditor, finally addressed the full Synod of Bishops, he touched upon two very important topics that have emerged at this synod, and which can reveal either the full flowering or complete failure of the impact of the Word of God on the lives of ordinary faithful people.  Read more...

The Marks of the Church - Father George W. Rutler

Just as it is more than appropriate, even necessary in the classical understanding of piety, to give thanks to parents on one’s own birthday, so the Church worships the Holy Spirit on the Feast of Pentecost for giving it birth.  Read more...

The Marriage Feast - A Story - DONALD DEMARCO

The good people of Ulm had much reason to honor their king. During the terrible drought fifty years past, when the citizens of this peaceful hamlet had literally nothing to eat, King Karolus supplied them with enough food until God deemed it was time to shower their farms once again with nourishing rain. This story charmingly dramatizes the importance of preparing ourselves for our journey home.  Read more...
