Why modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers...
Philip Kosloski
The world around us will not listen to our Gospel message, unless we live a life of Christian beauty. If we boldly proclaim the truth, but fail to live a life a holiness, our message is empty and has no weight. It does not affect the people we meet and they dismiss it without giving it a second thought. We can not simply teach the truth boldly and expect that everyone will flock to the Church...


5 extraordinary Eucharistic miracles that left physical evidence...
Brantly Millegan
Catholics believe that Jesus Christ is really, truly, and substantially present in the Eucharist. There are many stories of miracles throughout Church history that seem to confirm this important teaching. It’s important to note that no Catholic is required to believe any of these stories. Even if they have been investigated and approved by the Church...


Vatican releases itinerary for Pope Francis’s U.S. visit...


Waiting to convert...
Richard Becker
Becoming a Catholic is a huge deal for evangelical Protestants, and it frequently leads to disrupted relationships – family, friends, co-workers, you name it. Nonetheless, once you’re convinced that the Catholicism is true, and you start craving the Sacraments, and it’s so hard to not receive the Eucharist, you’re raring to go – full speed ahead...


A scriptural guide for our troubled and confused times...
Msgr. Charles Pope
There’s an old hymn that says, “In times like these, you need a Savior, in times like these, you need an anchor. Be very sure, be very sure, Your anchor holds and grips the Solid Rock.” And indeed, there are very few faithful Catholics who are not astonished and dismayed at the rapidity of decline into confusion (sexual and otherwise) of a culture we once described as Judeo-Christian...


Avila to Aspen (Day 27): We live in unsettled times, but have confidence in Christ...
Fr. John Hilton
I started in a little town called Mercer, in the North Woods area of Wisconsin. A lot of people come here on vacations from Green Bay, Chicago and Milwaukee, and you can see why. Beautiful trees, rolling countryside, gorgeous blue skies. We found some fire pits in the woods, so we might even start a campfire tonight...


We delude ourselves if we think we are expanding our freedom by driving the Faith into retreat...
Mark Shea
The mindset that puts no brake on the power of the strong over the weak is the root of slavery. It is the inevitable corollary of the destruction of the Christian tradition. Slavery is the normal room temperature state of fallen man. It took centuries for the Christian tradition to beat it back and the victory has always been tenuous and provisional...

Recently Pope Francis made some impromptu remarks about weapons manufacturers at a meeting with young people in Turin. These were poorly misreported in the press and have resulted in a number of questions being asked.

The Church will survive gay marriage if it sticks to its guns...


The (Roman) Empire strikes back...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
After my most recent visit to Rome I’ve been reading more about the history of Rome, and the parallels with twenty first America are fascinating. Many people know about the fall of the Roman Empire and follow the usual narrative that Rome collapsed from within because of moral decadence. Of course, the story is more complicated than that...


We've been here before: Marriage and the Room of Tears...
Fr. Robert Barron
Just last week, I had the privilege of spending four hours in the Sistine Chapel with my Word on Fire team. Toward the end of our filming, the director of the Vatican Museums, who had accompanied us throughout the process, asked whether I wanted to see the “Room of Tears.” This is the little antechamber, just off of the Sistine Chapel...

Francis is not the only pope facing a divorce dilemma...
John Allen
As Pope Francis gears up for a showdown over divorce and remarriage at October’s Synod of Bishops, marking the latest chapter in a polarizing debate that’s left some Catholics delighted and others disenchanted, he can take consolation that he’s not the pope in the hottest water over the issue. The world’s other major Christian leader who holds the same title...


Ecco Papa: At long last, Francis' U.S. dance card...
Rocco Palmo
After a notably longer wait than usual, this morning the schedule for the Pope's late September swing through the Northeast was released by the Holy See and the USCCB with some 90 days to spare before the journey takes place. For the Vatican, the 22-27 September Stateside trek is the second leg of a tour that'll first see Francis spend four days in Cuba...

Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
In the wake of the June 26 U.S. Supreme Court opinion that legalized same-sex "marriage" throughout the United States, everyone should review the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’s document from 2003, which is called Considerations Regarding Proposals to Give Legal Recognition to Unions Between Homosexual Persons...

Sights, sounds and stories from a five-country European speaking tour...
Dawn Eden
So much has happened since I last updated you on my life and apostolate! I returned June 12 from my three-week European speaking tour, and my heart is full of gratitude as I look back upon the wonderful people I encountered and the beautiful experiences I had speaking in five countries. Most of what I will share here are the public highlights; omitted are many of the friendships I made or renewed on this trip...
