The Sanctity of Human Life - Fr. William Saunders

I had an argument with a friend about the Church's teaching on abortion. She said that the Church was not against abortion until the 20th century; I said that the Church has always been against abortion. Am I right, and if so, what evidence is there to give to my friend?   Read more...

The Scholars and the Goddess - Charlotte Allen

WICCA, sometimes known as the Goddess movement, Goddess spirituality, or the Craft, appears to be the fastest-growing religion in America. Thirty years ago only a handful of Wiccans existed.

The Sign of the Cross - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

My friend is Greek Orthodox. In his Church, they make the sign of the cross crossing themselves from the right shoulder to the left, but we do the opposite. Why is there a difference? When did this come into practice?  Read more...

The Sin of Suicide - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

The Son Is Equal to the Father - Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J.

The Spirituality of St. Thomas Aquinas - ROMANUS CESSARIO, O.P.

We see Aquinas's spiritual self-understanding reveals his deep personal love for Jesus Christ in the words that he spoke before receiving the blessed Eucharist for the last time: "I now receive you who are the price of my soul's redemption, I receive you who are the food for my final journey, and for the love of whom I have studied, kept vigil, and struggled;  Read more...

The Stages of World Religion — part 4 - Christopher Dawson

This concluding section of The Stages of World Religion, as shown in the different books of Christopher Dawson, deals with Stages VI and VII, the period from the Renaissance and the Reformation down to the 20th century. Because of the breakup of the Catholic synthesis which had brought the Hellenic and Hebraic traditions together in a common unity, the culture of the West is now vulnerable to the invasion of alternative syntheses of thought and culture.  Read more...

The Strength and Compassion of Shania Twain - DONALD DEMARCO

In helping to reverse the misfortunes of others, Shania Twain is doing through music, what Charles Dickens did through his novels. Her identification with compassion for hungry children has not abated because, as she tells us, “I was that hungry kid.” Shania Twain’s adversity formed her compassion and her strength, and it is to her honor and credit that it retains priority in her heart far above all the trappings of her extraordinary success.  Read more...

The Three Most Profound Ideas I Have Ever Had - Peter Kreeft

Ideas are more precious than diamonds. The three most precious ideas I have ever discovered all concern the love of God. None of them is original. But every one is revolutionary. None of them came from me. But all of them came to me with sudden force and fire: the "aha!" experience, the "eureka!" experience. They were all realizations, not just beliefs.  Read more...
