The Greats Make a Comeback - George Weigel

Although my high school years coincided with the Age of Aquarius, I was spared the kind of reading lists that now imagine Dan (DaVinci Code) Brown to be a serious writer, or that ignore the great twentieth-century authors whose fiction reflects the Catholic sacramental imagination: Graham Greene, Flannery O’Connor, Walker Percy, and Evelyn Waugh, to name just the all-stars.  Read more...

The happiness in their hearts - Barbara Kay

One of the greatest challenges of being a parent is figuring out what and how to teach your child about religion. Here Barbara Kay extols the virtues of children thinking about God.   Read more...

The High Cost of Coddling - Caitlin Flanagan

The Holy See’s Teaching On Catholic Schools - Archbishop J. Michael Miller, C.S.B

The Holy See, through its documents and interventions, whether of the Pope or of other Vatican offices, sees in Catholic schools an enormous heritage and an indispensable instrument in carrying out the Church's mission in the third Christian millennium. Ensuring their genuinely Catholic identity is the Church's greatest challenge.  Read more...

The Importance of the Classics - LOUISE COWAN

The great books speak to us of honor and love and sacrifice; but they do not always speak in familiar phrases. They do not tell us what we already know. Transcending current opinion and fad, through symbol and metaphor they reveal a clear and uncluttered access to the realities that determine our lives.  Read more...

The Language Police - Diane Ravitch

The Late, Great St. Ignatius Institute - Tom Hoopes

For those who graduated from the St. Ignatius Institute, the most important thing that needs to be said is that it was, in many ways, exactly what Catholic higher education should be. It was truly alma mater — a “nurturing mother” — to scores of students like me. It trained our minds, our hearts and our wills, and it literally changed us forever.  Read more...

The Law and the Constitution - James Hitchcock

A loose, but comfortable, working relationship between religion and the public order was accepted by almost everybody until at least World War II.  Read more...

The Liberal Arts and Sexual Morality - Peter Kreeft

Are the liberal arts and sexual morality connected? There is strong evidence that they are, for if we graph their development over the last half-century, we will see an almost identical curve of accelerating decline. Although this proves nothing, it certainly suggests something worth exploring more deeply.  Read more...

The Limits of Tolerance - Tim Drake

When the president of a Catholic university, Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., refused to allow a pro-abortion speaker to appear on campus, he touched off a lively debate about the nature of academic freedom and the implications of a school’s Catholic identity.  Read more...

The Lord loves a good game - Deacon Douglas McManaman

I don’t know how many of you saw the hockey game between the U.S and Finland, but I watched about 4 seconds of it. That’s how long it took for me to see the score after the first period: 6–0.   Read more...

The Neutrality Principle - James E. Ryan

The law regarding vouchers is in the midst of fundamental change.
