Priest faces trial after alleged assault of San Diego seminarian


Indian bishop accused of rape steps aside, requests leave from Vatican...


Here is your prescription for peace in a world of woe...
Msgr. Charles Pope
First, make the journey to Nain, a place called fair and beautiful. That is, let the Lord open your eyes to the beauty and blessings all around you. Come to see the magnificence of His glory on display at every moment. It will give you peace and serene joy. Ask for the grace to accept that we currently live in a “paradise lost” and that life is hard...


It’s time to recover the Ember Days fasts...


Christ wants each of His priests to be an angry dad who protects his family — not an aloof coward who tells lies...
Fr. Roger Landry
In the last two weeks, there have been ongoing developments in the clergy scandals that erupted with the revelation of the sexual abuse committed by former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, widened with the publication of the Pennsylvania grand jury investigation of sexual abuse of minors, and mushroomed further with the publication of testimonies by Archbishop Carlo Viganò...

Take-aways on the latest twists in the clerical abuse saga...
John Allen
When a news cycle goes supernova, generally developments come far too fast and furious for anyone really to absorb them in anything other than bite-size, superficial form. Over just the last 72 hours, there have been at least three new twists to the clerical sexual abuse scandals once again rocking the global Church.

Where is Jesus in the sex abuse scandals?
Daniel Philpott
Where is Jesus in the Catholic Church’s sex abuse scandals? Absent, some Catholics say. The Church’s priests and shepherds have proven that the Church is not really the Body of Christ. These Catholics will leave. Others reassure us that the Church remains the Body of Christ despite the sins of its members. Even the gates of Hell will not prevail against it...


If the mother of the Maccabees knew of atoms...
Stacy Trasancos
Social media shoves us all up in each other’s faces in unprecedented ways. Where national politics was once metered in through newspapers and the evening news, now people of all ages have access to global details of immeasurable variety. Through the internet, we can see what friends on other continents had for dinner. We have a finger incessantly on the pulse of global events...

What you need to know about this Sunday’s readings...
John Bergsma
We have been getting a number of rousing challenges from Jesus in the past several weeks, as our readings have followed the progress of his ministry, and Jesus repeatedly makes clear that following him is not going to be easy in any way. This Sunday we get another challenge from Jesus to “fish or cut bait” in our relationship with him...


The love that moves the sun...
Archbishop Charles Chaput
Last October, the journal First Things carried my comments on the encyclical Veritatis Splendor. In March, it published my thoughts on Fides et Ratio. Each text needs the other. They’re a diptych. And both mark anniversaries this year; 25 and 20 respectively. I went into a lot of detail in each of those First Things pieces...

New York Times flashback: Is hiding sex scandals among bishops just the ‘Roman way?’...
Terry Mattingly
When you read the lede on the following USA Today report, it’s pretty clear which issue the editors think is at the heart of the 30-plus year long scandal in the Roman Catholic Church. Yes, I am sorry to bring this up again, but this information is important for reporters and editors who are trying to understand the current divisions inside the world’s largest Christian flock...

Prominent Australian politician renounces atheism, is baptized in the Catholic Church at 85...
Fr. Matthew Schneider
Some amazing news came out of Australia today with a famous atheist politician receiving baptism. Bill Hayden had been the leader of a major Australian political party, then was the Governor General of Australia for 7 years. The Governor General is the one who signs bills into law in the Queen’s name in 16 Commonwealth countries...

If there were secret sanctions on McCarrick, it wouldn't be a first...
Inés San Martín
Three weeks after a bombshell accusation of abuse cover-up against Pope Francis by an ex-papal ambassador, an element of that charge still remains an enigma: Were there, or were there not, secret restrictions on former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick imposed under Pope emeritus Benedict XVI? It’s been a tough claim for some to swallow...


Pope issues new apostolic constitution Episcopalis Communio on Synod of Bishops...


Here are some ways to save Synod-2018 from itself...
George Weigel
Anyone looking for a remedy for insomnia might try working through the Instrumentum Laboris, or “working document,” for the XV Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, to be held in Rome next month on the theme “Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment.” The IL is a 30,000 word brick: a bloated, tedious door stop full of sociologese but woefully lacking in spiritual or theological insight...


12 years after Regensburg, why you need to learn more about Islam...
R. Jared Staudt
On September 12, 2006, almost five years to the day from 9/11, Pope Benedict XVI delivered a watershed lecture at the University of Regensburg. He argued that Islam and the modern West hold a significant tenant in common: a voluntarism that puts will above reason. For classic Islamic thinkers this meant that Allah was not bound by any restraints of reason...
