Can Catholics Bear ‘Body Art’? - Pia de Solenni

Many good Catholic young people bear on their bodies the trendy markings of their times: tattoos, body piercings and other forms of "body art." Should the Church pretend not to notice the displays — or should Catholic adults try to steer young people away from these now-ubiquitous expressions?  Email This Article

Can prayer really heal? - Ylva Van Buuren

Twelve years ago Nancie Nicholson's two-year-old nephew, Kyle, began having problems with his balance. It took doctors a month to figure out what was wrong: Tests showed a rare form of cancer in one of his adrenal glands.  Email This Article

Catechesis of fasting - Adam A. J. DeVille

Pope John Paul has called on us to build a holier Church, and in his 1995 letter Orientale Lumen, exhorted Latin Catholics in particular to learn from their Eastern brethren so that the Church can again breathe with both lungs.

As we examine the main points of his reflections we will be able to see more clearly his insights into the meaning of the Church’s social doctrine.  Email This Article

Catholics and the Bible - CATHOLIC EVIDENCE GUILD

For a Christian face to face with a Bible passage the question “Is it true?” does not arise; God wrote it, and he cannot lie. The question in every instance is only, “What does it mean, what did the biblical author, inspired by, God, wish to convey and teach?” Now, to ascertain this the guidance of the Church is essential, and time and patience are often needed.  Email This Article
