62 clergy and lay signatories issue former ‘filial correction’ of Pope Francis


12 quotes from the great Padre Pio of Pietrelcina...
Tom Perna
Today in the Latin Rite of the Catholic Church, we celebrate the memorial of the Great Saint of Pietrelcina, otherwise known as Padre Pio. If you are not familiar with this amazing 20th century Catholic Saint and Franciscan, I would encourage you to read up on him and learn as much as you can. He is one of my favorites and a favorite of many Catholics I know...

In Vatican trial, witness calls spending on Cardinal Bertone's apartment 'anomalous'...
John Allen
In the latest hearing on Friday of the Vatican’s first-ever trial for financial crimes, an official of the Government of the Vatican City State testified that a remodeling project for the private Vatican apartment of Italian Cardinal Tarcisio bypassed the normal bidding process, and was “singular” and “anomalous.” That remodeling project is at the heart of the case...


Has South Korean President Moon Jae-In's Catholicism influenced his diplomacy?
Victor Gaetan
Earlier this month, U.S. President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize the South Korean leadership for “appeasement” of North Korea. In a dig at South Korean President Moon Jae-in days earlier, Trump likewise cautioned that “Talking is not the Answer!” in reference to Moon’s preference for negotiations with Pyongyang...

Is it big news when liberal Lutherans say the early Church was wrong on sex? Why not?
Terry Mattingly
When it comes to lesbians and gays in the ministry, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America speaks with a clear voice. So that doctrinal stance really isn't news anymore. When it comes to ecclesiastical approval for same-sex marriage liturgies, the ELCA – at this point – leaves that decision up to local leaders. So it really isn't news when an ELCA congregation backs same-sex marriage...

How to stay human while arguing on social media...
Simcha Fisher
Like many Catholics, I spend a lot of time on social media. Some of this is for my job: I need to find out what people are talking about. Some of this is for my own entertainment: I want to know what’s up. Some of this is for my own sanity: I need to talk to someone who is not a toddler or a kitten or a parakeet. And some of this ...

That’s not right. That’s not even wrong...
Edward Peters
According to Fr. James Martin, although the Church teaches that “LGBT people must be celibate their entire lives” this expectation “has not been received”, by lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and/or transgender people, and therefore it has failed to become “authoritative” in their regard. I am reminded of a furrowed-brow comment a friend once made upon hearing some speaker bungle several ecclesiastical terms: “That’s not right...


Meet the man who helped build the pope's brand on Twitter...
Inés San Martín
Pope Francis today is acknowledged as one of the most influential leaders in the world, including on Twitter. Catholic layman Gustavo Entrala, one of the few people in the world who can say they taught a pope how to tweet, defines the “Pope Francis brand” as one of the most consistent in the world. The pope, Entrala believes...

After centuries of exile, a Grey Friar returns to Walsingham...
K.V. Turley
If you have ever visited Walsingham, England’s National Marian Shrine, you may have seen the poignant sight of a ruined friary standing upon a small hill just outside the village. It forms part of a private property now, and so is not normally accessible to the public. At the entrance gate, one July day, there stood a figure dressed in dark gray...

I must confess: Building a habit of the Sacrament of Reconciliation...
Jenny Uebbing
When I was a Catholic kid growing up, like most Catholic kids I’ve ever known, I hated going to confession. I hated the sinking feeling in my stomach as I stood in line, palms sweating and heart speeding up as each penitent in line ahead of me disappeared behind the door with the red light overhead. I hated coming up with a list of things I was ashamed of and having to whisper them aloud to another human being...

A review of ‘The Unknown Girl’...
Deacon Steven Greydanus
“Listen.” It’s the first word of dialogue spoken in the Dardenne brothers’ The Unknown Girl, as Dr. Jenny Davin (Adele Haenel), stethoscope held to the back of a heavyset, older patient, presses her intern Julien (Olivier Bonnaud) to diagnose the condition of the man, whose heavy breathing dominates an otherwise mostly silent opening shot...

When you're defending the truth, do it with class, because bad-mouthing the other guy only makes things worse...
Archbishop Charles Chaput
As I write these words I’m looking at an untitled cartoon from the National Catholic Reporter in the Wojtyla-era 1980s. It’s an image of an elaborate canopy with praying angels draped over a Chair of Peter—in this case, a toilet with the papal insignia. It’s tied to a column that argues, among other things, that the “Catholic church is uncomfortable with two things...

All roads lead to Rome, and Rome leads to Jerusalem, and Jerusalem to a New Jerusalem...
Nicholas Frankovich
As social conservatives, we embrace Western culture and defend it, although what we mean by it is necessarily vague. The closest thing to it in the Middle Ages was a notion of Roman culture, sustained by the late form of Latin that served as the lingua franca for scholarship, religion, and official communication across the continent...

On Jesus’ merciful call of St. Matthew, a great sinner...
Msgr. Charles Pope
On this Feast Day of St. Matthew, we must acknowledge a great mercy in Jesus’ call. As a tax collector, Matthew was considered a great sinner. In fact, the term “tax collector” was a biblical euphemism for great sinner. Yet despite this, Jesus called him to be an Apostle. In our times, many set mercy and the fact that we are sinners in opposition to each other...
