The Prayer to St. Michael - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Why has almost every Catholic Church in Northern Virginia suddenly acquired a statue of St. Michael and suddenly added the prayer to him as part of the Mass? Was this an edict handed down from the Bishop?  Read more...

The Problem of Evil - PETER KREEFT

The Prodigal Son As Heard in Jesus’ Day - Tim Gray

The story of the prodigal son captures the essence of the Gospel for the Holy Father, so much so that he never seems to tire of drawing forth rich insight and encouragement from this timeless tale.  Read more...

The Psychology of Atheism - Paul Vitz

The title of this paper, "The Psychology of Atheism," may seem strange. Certainly, my psychological colleagues have found it odd and even, I might add, a little disturbing.  Read more...

The Question of Incorruptibility - Rev. William Saunders

It was reported a few years ago 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 Resurrection - Fr. Leonard M. Puech

On the occasion of Easter, it may be useful to consider what the Resurrection of Jesus reveals to us about the future life, about its existence and its nature.   Read more...

The Resurrection - Charles E. Rice

That Christ rose from the dead is an article of our faith. But we tend to overlook the fact that the resurrection was an historical event, just as much as the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.  Read more...

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

“On the third day he rose again.” With these words the Creed moves from the earthly life of Our Lord to the glorious state in which he now lives.  Read more...

The Resurrection, Our Hope - Pope Benedict XVI

Saint Mark tells us in his Gospel that as the disciples came down from the Mount of the Transfiguration, they were discussing among themselves what "rising from the dead" could mean (cf. Mk 9:10).  Read more...

The retreat of liberation theology - Edward A. Lynch

Few intellectual movements have begun with more immediate, favorable attention than the theology of liberation, developed by Latin American scholars in the 1960s and 1970s.  Read more...

The Revenge of Conscience - J. BUDZISZEWSKI

The Rite of Election: RCIA - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

A few weeks ago, there was a picture showing the Rite of Election at the Cathedral. The text did not tell what the Rite of Election is or what it leads to or that it is part of the RCIA. Perhaps you could answer the question, "What is the RCIA?"  Read more...

The Role of Permanent Deacons - Fr. William Saunders

In my parish, we have a permanent deacon and also a deacon who will be ordained a priest. What is the difference? Why are some deacons "permanent"?  Read more...

The Roman Primacy and the Spiritual Life - Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

Until recent years, we would hardly have written on a subject like “The Roman Primacy and the Spiritual Life.” But much has happened to call for some inquiry into the relationship between faith in the papal primacy and growth in the spiritual life.  Read more...

The Rules of Fasting - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Recently I was discussing the Lenten fasting and abstinence regulations with a friend. He told me that a person is supposed to fast one hour before receiving Holy Communion. I honestly have never heard that before. Can you clear up this matter for me?  Read more...

The Sacred Heart and the Eucharist - Father Richard Neilson

May is the month of Mary, our Blessed Mother, and June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. As May leads to and introduces June, so Mary brings us to the love of her Son, the love symbolized by His Sacred Heart.  Read more...

The Sacrifice of the Mass - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

A friend of mine who belongs to an evangelical Church was asking me about the Mass. She read a quote from Hebrews which seemed to say that the Mass could not be a sacrifice. Can you help me in this matter?  Read more...
