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 patience of the Christian - Father George W. Rutler

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 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.

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...
