Jesuit Philosopher Recounts Time with Mother Teresa - Clayton Berry

Jesus Vasquez - Rev. George W. Rutler

As I was unfamiliar with the Spanish convention of naming boys for the Savior, it startled me upon arriving in my new parish to read on the bulletin board: “If there is no usher at the 7:30 Mass, Jesus will take up the collection.”  Read more...

Jim Balmer: Lifelong Conversion - Molly Mulqueen

Dawn Farm in Ann Arbor, Michigan is a place where addicts and alcoholics recover the lives they lost to drugs and alcohol. “Recover” is an innocent-sounding verb for the grueling, gut-wrenching metamorphosis that takes place in the human body and spirit as it separates from the chemical demons that possess it. But close to 75 percent of the people who undergo treatment at Dawn Farm really do reclaim their lost lives and achieve long-term recovery.  Read more...

John Paul II — preparing the 21st Century - George Weigel

John Paul II's Master Class to his 'dear young friends' - Fr. Thomas Rosica, C.S.B.

John Paul the Great - Peggy Noonan

The pope proceeded down the line, nodding and patting, and when he got to me I jerked into a kind of curtsy-bow and touched his right hand with my hands. Then I bent and covered his thick old knuckles with Chanel No. 23 Red Raspberry lipstick. I couldn't help it. I think I said, "Papa."  Read more...

John Paul’s Spiritual Testament - Father Alfonso Aguilar

Joseph Ratzinger, Christ’s Donkey - Rev. Richard John Neuhaus

Born in Bavaria on Holy Saturday of 1927, Joseph Ratzinger’s life has been entirely within and for the Church, which, he is convinced, is the way of greatest service to the world. This and much else become evident in his remarkable account by Ignatius, Milestones: Memoirs 1927-1977, which takes the reader from his childhood to his appointment as Archbishop of Munich. (note: this review was originally published in January 1999).  Read more...

Leading from the Cross - George Weigel

Lent — Have You Given Up on Giving Up? - Susan Vogt

A year ago, I was facing Lent — again.  I was ready to repeat the routine of what I usually do for Lent:  no sweets or complaining, extra prayer, and the usual fasting and abstinence.  I realized, though, that I wasn't growing or being challenged.  Read more...

Lent and its Discontents - Matthew Lickona

When I was confirmed at age fifteen, I took St. John the Baptist as my confirmation saint. ‘A voice crying out in the wilderness,’ I thought, full of adolescent pride. By Lent of 2003 I was a little older and a little more humble — if only as a result of years of sin and failure to do much crying out...  Read more...

Leo and John Paul are like brothers - Father Raymond de Souza

For 50 difficult years, from Hitler’s invasion in 1939 until the communist crack-up in 1989, Polish Catholicism fought tenaciously and successfully for its independence, and Poland’s, by emphasizing the liberating power of the truth. That brilliant accomplishment must not be compromised now by a stubborn reluctance to face the full truth of those five decades.  Read more...
