From high society to a higher calling - Adair Lara

The San Francisco socialite had it all — 10 children, friends, wealth — but she traded it in for life in a convent. Fifteen years later, Ann Miller remains steadfast in her vows of seclusion, poverty, chastity and obedience.   Read more...

Fulton J. Sheen, Catholic Champion - Thomas C. Reeves

In preparing America's Bishop: The Life and Times of Fulton J. Sheen I discovered a brilliant, charismatic, and holy man who has been underestimated by historians, largely overlooked by the contemporary mass media, and forgotten by too many Catholics. Indeed, I came to the conclusion that Fulton J. Sheen was the most important Catholic of twentieth century America.  Read more...

G.E.M. Anscombe - Rev. George W. Rutler

A bishop and a professor told me that in separate audiences, the first thing John Paul II said when they mentioned Oxford was: "Do you know Professor Anscombe?"  Read more...

G.K. Chesterton and Malcolm Muggeridge: A balance of opposites - Karl Schmude

Curiously, if I can risk a paradox so early in discussing Chesterton and Muggeridge – for both of them had a love of paradox – it is in the similarities between these two men that we find the differences.   Read more...

G.K. Chesterton: Champion of Orthodoxy - Joseph Pearce

Chesterton's reputation as one of the key figures in Christian literature during the 20th century is linked inextricably with the concept of "orthodoxy."   Read more...

God, the Hound of Heaven - David Scott

‘Everything comes from love,’ St. Catherine of Siena reminds us. This is the great paradox of our Father’s love. In a world filled with evil and innocent suffering, how can we believe in God’s love? These questions gnawed away at Eugene O’Neill. ‘His whole life’ was consumed with ‘the problem of evil and God’s permissive will,’ Dorothy Day said.  Read more...

God’s Secret Agent: Interview with Sue Thomas - Barbara Nicolosi

At the age of eighteen months, Sue Thomas was watching television with her family when she suddenly went deaf.

Good Sportsmanship - Donald DeMarco

We are all aware of the fact that media images and reality do not always coincide. In fact, the image that the media presents to us can be the polar opposite of the reality it replaces.  Read more...

Graham Greene: Doubter Par Excellence - Joseph Pearce

It was both apt and prophetic that Greene should have taken the name of St. Thomas the Doubter at his reception into the Church in February 1926. He doubted others; he doubted himself; he doubted God. Ironically, it was this very doubt that so often provided the creative force for his fiction.  Read more...

Hauled Aboard the Ark - Peter Kreeft

I was born into a loving, believing community, a Protestant "mother church" (the Reformed Church) which, though it had not for me the fullness of the faith, had strong and genuine piety.  Read more...

Hauled Aboard the Ark – The Spiritual Journey of Peter Kreeft - Peter Kreeft

I was born into a loving, believing community, a Protestant "mother church" (the Reformed Church) which, though it had not for me the fullness of the faith, had strong and genuine piety.   Read more...

Haunted House - Mark Gauvreau Judge

This Halloween, when I go trick-or-treating with my nephews, I'm dressing as an 18th-century Russian-born priest.

He Taught Us Who We Are - Janet E. Smith

In his letter marking the close of the Jubilee year, Pope John Paul II wrote, “I have often stopped to look at the long queues of pilgrims waiting patiently to go through the Holy Door. In each of them I tried to imagine the story of a life, made up of joys, worries, sufferings; the story of someone whom Christ had met and who in dialogue with Him, was setting out again on a journey of hope.”  Read more...
