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...

The Meaning of Martyrdom for Christians and Muslims - Donald DeMarco

The meaning of martyrdom is radically different for Christians and Muslims. This difference is based on how, according to their religious beliefs, they look upon each other.   Read more...

The Meaning of Prayer - Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

How well do we communicate with the other world when we pray?  Read more...

The Meaning of the Terms Nun, Sister, Monk, Priest, and Brother - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Is there any difference between a nun and a sister? What about a monk are they priests or brothers? I have always been confused by these terms.  Read more...

The Medical Account Of Christ’s Last Days And The Cross - Dr. C. Truman Davis

Dr. C. Truman Davis, an ophthalmologist in Mesa, Arizona, has researched the medical sufferings of Jesus on the cross. He has published them in medical journals in Arizona, Florida and Alabama and has traveled extensively across the nation giving lectures on the subject. His findings are printed here.  Read more...

The Miracle of Lanciano - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Recently, one of our parish priests mentioned the Eucharistic miracle of Lanciano in his sermon and also mentioned some scientific studies that had been performed. Could you please provide a little more information concerning this miracle  Read more...

The Missing Books of the Bible - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Last week, my friend who is a Baptist was visiting and came with me to Mass. The first reading was from the second Book of Maccabees. She had never heard of that book. I said, "It is in the Bible." She said, "It is not in my Bible." Is there a difference?  Read more...

The modern place for faith - Father Raymond J. de Souza

We need faith, but are suspicious of it.  Read more...

The Mortal Sin of Blasphemy - Rev. William Saunders

The Mother of God - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

I was visiting an inner-city church one day and in the vestibule some graffiti was written on the wall which said, "Catholics, God has no mother," obviously referring to Mary's title as "Mother of God." How does one respond to such an objection?  Read more...
