Courage in Scandal - George Weigel

An interview with George Weigel followed by an excerpt from his new book "The Courage to Be Catholic: Crisis, Reform, and the Future of the Church". "In the first months of 2002, the Catholic Church in the United States entered the greatest crisis in its history. When Lent began on February 13, the penitential ashes imposed that day on millions of Catholics felt leaden. Something had gone desperately wrong. Something was broken. Something had to be fixed."   Email This Article

Cranky in Life, Saintly in Death - JOHN BENTLEY MAYS

John Paul frankly described Pius as “much loved, but also hated and slandered.” Why?  Email This Article

Crime and Punishment - JAMES HITCHCOCK

In the nineteenth century the therapeutic approach to crime was an aspect of genuine moral progress, forcing society to be more compassionate because it was more aware of the realities of criminal behavior, distinguishing for example between a brutal thug and a starving young mother. But this compassionate effort at understanding has become debased to the point where it is nothing less than a denial of human freedom and moral responsibility.  Email This Article

Critics Turn Up the Heat on Jesus Seminar - JOHN BURGER

The Jesus seminar is trying to create a new myth of Christian origins which leaves people free to construct their own postmodern spirituality. That spirituality has Jesus instructing his followers to “do your own thing.”  Email This Article

Cults, Movements, World Religions - Mary Kochan

To many of us, the modern religious landscape appears increasingly confusing, even strange or frightening. No matter how strong in faith and regular in religious practice our families may be, we are not insulated from contact with a bewildering variety of religious expressions, a Babel of “prophetic” voices and a dizzying array of competing world views.  Email This Article

Culture of Vice - ROBERT R. REILLY

As society justifies personal moral disorders, it threatens its own survival.  Email This Article

Decisions of Conscience - Grace MacKinnon

Dear Grace, I am confused about something. If the Church teaches that we should follow our conscience, but then turns around and teaches us that we must obey Church teaching, then what is the difference? Who am I supposed to follow, the Church’s teaching or my own conscience? How will I know what is the right thing to do?  Email This Article

Deliver us from evil - Scott Hahn

“Deliver us from evil” is a somewhat misleading translation. In the Greek New Testament, there is a definite article before the word evil. So Jesus actually commanded us to pray for deliverance from “the evil” or, more precisely, “the evil one.”  Email This Article

Depending on Prayer - Douglas McManaman

The first sin of man, from which he needed to be redeemed, was fundamentally a rejection of his status as “child”.   Email This Article

Diary of a Country Bishop – a book review - Charlotte Allen

Those who think that today’s Catholic Church has problems reining in its errant clergy should read Craig Harline and Eddy Put’s summary of the new code of conduct that Mathias Hovius, Archbishop of Mechelin (not far from Brussels in today’s Belgium) from 1596 to 1620, laid down for every priest in his diocese.  Email This Article
