Amended California confession bill still targets priests, Catholic employees


Our ‘American Apple Pie Religion‘ is a blend of Oprah Winfrey, Walt Disney and Dale Carnegie...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
I am in the middle of writing my next book. It was going to be called The Way of the Warrior Priest but the working title now is Immortal Combat – Everyday Evil and the Only Solution. As part of this process I am being drawn to meditate increasingly on the reality of evil and how, at the root of it all, are lies. Lies, lies, lies...

The Lord has left a legacy of love for us to draw upon...
Msgr. Charles Pope
The title of this sermon uses the word legacy, which refers to something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor. Perhaps the most accessible image of this is money. If I receive 100 million dollars from a dying relative, I can the money to start living differently. My bills, which now seem overwhelming, can be paid with just the interest earned from my newfound wealth...


Belloc, the Bible, and a buried lede about a Franciscan...
David Mills
These words of Hilaire Belloc’s have been popping up a lot on the Web, so in case you haven’t seen it: Arriving at a posh Anglican school after a Catholic gathering, he told its Anglican minister: “The Catholic Church is an institution I am bound to hold divine — but for unbelievers a proof of its divinity might be found in the fact that no merely human institution conducted with such knavish imbecility would have lasted a fortnight...


King St. Eric of Sweden is a template for dads everywhere...
Rick Becker
It can’t be easy for kings to become saints. Most are also husbands and fathers, and so you have all the challenges that come with those callings, plus the enormous headaches and perpetual consternation associated with ruling a people. Raise taxes, lower taxes? Go to war, sue for peace? Statecraft, diplomacy, court intrigues – how do Gospel values square with all that...

The Kingdom of Love: The readings for the 5th Sunday of Easter...
John Bergsma
The Easter Season is passing quickly. Already it is more than half over, as we progress toward the great Feasts of Ascension and Pentecost. We want the Season to slow down, so that we may savor the joy and consolation of these readings from Acts and John that dominate the Easter Cycle, but tempus fugit. The Readings for this Fifth Sunday of Easter describe the growth of the Kingdom of God...

Why people don’t want pro-life women in the abortion debate...
Carrie Gress
New pro-life laws in Georgia and Alabama have elicited predictable responses from pro-abortion activists. Framing the pro-life argument as an attack on women, Alyssa Milano suggested a sex strike, while Linda Sarsour was quick to blame white women for supporting the patriarchy. With the left’s sacrament of the left under fire...

Church in Chile ‘shocked’ and ‘perplexed’ over abuse crisis, locals say...
Inés San Martín
Though it’s been diminishing for a while, more so in some places than others, the influence of the Catholic Church across Latin America is still undeniable. Chile is no exception, especially given that the Church here was at the forefront of the defense of human rights during the 1973-1990 dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet. The Church’s standing in Chile right now...


Nationalism and Catholicism collide in run-up to the European elections...
Clemente Lisi
Italians will go to the ballot box on May 26 to elect members of the country’s delegation to the European Parliament. The vote — part of elections held across the European Union — will be another litmus test regarding Italy’s two populist political parties and whether they can withstand challenges from the left. What this latest electoral test will also do is reveal Italy’s love-hate relationship with the Catholic church...


Making the best case for that open letter on papal heresy...
Phil Lawler
John Rist, perhaps the most distinguished scholar among those who signed the open letter charging Pope Francis with heresy, has explained his action in an interview with the National Catholic Register. I would strongly urge all concerned Catholics to read the entire interview. Rist is an extremely intelligent man, and makes a strong case in defense of the open letter...

George Weigel
Clement Attlee once described Winston Churchill as akin to a layer cake: one never knew which layer of his personality would be displayed at a given moment — the 17th-century Churchill, imaginatively riding across the battlefields of Europe with his great ancestor, Marlborough; the 18th-century Churchill, standing in Parliament alongside Edmund Burke; the man born into 19th-century aristocracy at Blenheim Palace; the colossus of the democratic 20th century; or the visionary of the 21st century...


New D.C. leader says of facing abuse crisis again: ‘I’m not afraid’...
John Allen
Seventeen years ago, a charismatic young African-American bishop of Belleville, Illinois, rose to national prominence as president of the U.S. bishops’ conference at a time when the clerical sexual abuse crisis exploded in Boston in 2002, and then quickly rippled across the country. In a dark moment for the American Church, many Catholics felt Wilton Gregory was a rare point of light...

With America’s Vatican ‘checkup’ on tap, the reports come due...
Rocco Palmo
Even more than usual, the last 11 months have seen no shortage of notable stories come up, only to get washed out within hours by the latest curveball on the crisis front. Among other instances, this happened last July when – at the start of what should've been a quiet summer weekend – a Friday night saw the first report of plans for the all-important ad limina visit of the US bishops: American Catholicism's first Roman "exam" in the age of Francis ...
