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 Literal Truth - Carson Daly

To the unchurched and the unbeliever, many religious doctrines seem far-fetched.  Read more...

How did the celebration of Advent come about?  Read more...

The Lord hears the cry of the poor - Deacon Douglas McManaman

Homily for the 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time.   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 love of the saints - Father George W. Rutler

No generation has had more saints to intercede for them than ours has.   Read more...

The Magi - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Who were the Magi?  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...

The Mass Explained - Cormac Burke

The following commentaries on the Holy Mass — one for each day of the month — were first prepared for school use. They can easily be adapted for other uses.  Read more...

The Mass Is What We Do - Cardinal Donald Wuerl & Mike Aquilina

"This is an ingenious, deeply satisfying exploration of the Mass — its history, its elements and its meaning. The authors blend the best of priestly and lay wisdom about the central act of Catholic worship into a volume that is simultaneously rich in detail, wonderfully readable in style, and a marvelous resource for nourishing one's faith." - Archbishop Charles J. Chaput  Read more...

The Mass of Vatican II - Rev. Joseph Fessio

With regard to the Mass we have now two extremes and a moderate position. One extreme position is the kind of informal Mass, all in English, facing the people, with contemporary music, which does not at all correspond with what the Council had in mind. But it is legitimate, it is permitted; it is not wrong. And we have on the other extreme those who have returned, with permission, to the Mass of 1962 and, as others have noted, it is thriving and growing. But it is not what the Council itself specifically had in mind, although it is the Mass of the ages. Then you have the moderates.   Read more...

The Meaning of Christmas: Look Deeper - PETER KREEFT

While Christmas is so familiar that we sometimes wonder whether anything fresh and true can be said about it, there is a way to explore its meaning that may seem new to us today, yet is in fact quite traditional, dating back to the Middle Ages and the ancient Fathers of the Church.  Read more...

The Meaning of Holy Week - Grace MacKinnon

Dear Grace, I hear Catholics talking so much about Holy Week. What exactly is going on during this time?  Read more...

The Meaning of Love - Donald DeMarco

No other word in our language is more abused, misused, and confused than the word “love.” Yet, its essential meaning is not difficult to understand. The weight of the entire Christian tradition tells us, quite simply, that love is a tendency toward the real.  Read more...
