The mystery of the betrayer - Pope Benedict XVI

"After receiving the morsel, he immediately went out; and it was night" (13:30). Judas goes out – in a deeper sense. He goes into the night; he moves out of light into darkness: the "power of darkness" has taken hold of him.  Read more...

The Myth of the Pedophile Priest - Philip Jenkins

I am in no sense soft on the issue of child abuse. My concern over the “pedophile priest” issue is not to defend evil clergy, or a sinful church, but I am worried that justified anger over a few awful cases might be turned into ill-focused attacks against innocent clergy.  Read more...

The Nature of the Church - Peter Kreeft

The New Mass Translation: Just Going through the Motions? - Edward Sri

The New Paganism and the Culture of Death - Robert P. George

Let no one imagine that the temptation to idolatry and paganism is a matter of the distant past when primitive peoples offered sacrifice to the sun or prayed to stone outcroppings and golden calves. Remember: false gods always demand innocent blood. The evidence that a culture is descending into paganism is always manifest in the body count. This was true in ancient Babylon and it is true in modern America. Who can deny that everywhere today the false gods of liberal secularism are exacting their toll of carnage?  Read more...

In the Nicene Creed, after professing belief in the Holy Spirit, we go on to say that he “proceeds from the Father and the Son”.  Read more...

What was Mary's life like before the angel Gabriel appeared to her?  Read more...

The Other Catholics: A Short Guide to the Eastern Catholic Churches - Kevin R. Yurkus

As millions watched the funeral for Pope John Paul II, many were confused by the concluding Panakhyda celebrated not in Latin, but in Greek and Arabic by hierarchs in black hoods, turbans, crowns, and unusual vestments. Was this not the responsibility of the cardinals? And were those clerics even Catholic?  Read more...

What do we mean by the passion of Christ?  Read more...

The Passion of Jesus Christ - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

What do we mean by the "Passion" of Christ?  Read more...

The Paternal Order of Priests - Scott Hahn

There is a famous homily of St. Augustine in which he refers to the fathers in his audience as "my fellow bishops." He startles his congregation, which certainly included many busy fathers of families, by telling them to be faithful to the duties of the priesthood.  Read more...

The Path to the Papacy - Fr. William Saunders

Last week, Straight Answers began its discussion about the election process for the successor of St. Peter, including the timing, place and need for secrecy. Now we will continue with the actual election process.  Read more...

The Patristic Age - Father John A. Hardon, S.J.

The Fathers of the Church were those saintly writers of the early centuries whom the Church recognizes as her special defenders of orthodoxy. And the Patristic Age is the period during which they lived.  Read more...

The Peace of Christmas - Fr. Leonard Puech

On the occasion of Christmas we are going to hear again the song of the great throng of angels over the manger of Bethlehem: "Glory to God in the highest and peace to men whom he loves" (Lk. 2,14).  Read more...

The Permanent Relevance of Newman - LOUIS BOUYER

What struck me at a first reading of Newman's works and what has remained my personal interest (throughout many years) to this day is how Newman manages to develop in both his personality and teaching an immediate and spontaneous union between fidelity to God and intellectual integrity without these being in conflict.  Read more...

The Pervasive Reach of Pornography - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

The Postmodernist's Progress - IAN HUNTER

Only a fool would deny that tolerance can be a virtue. There are issues on which we should be broad-minded; there are circumstances that require forbearance. In matters inessential, live and let live is wise counsel. What is anathema to modern sensibilities is that there are other circumstances that call not for tolerance but for condemnation and rejection.  Read more...

"They have no wine”  Read more...

The Practical Power of Public Prayer - Father Dwight Longenecker

The Practice of Natural Family Planning - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

A question for you regarding Catholics who practice artificial birth control: What is their status in the Church? Are they committing mortal sin? I feel that this is a much misunderstood question by most Catholics, including myself. To further muddle the issue, what is the Church 's position when one's spouse does not want to practice NFP?  Read more...
