The Final Judgment: Readings for the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time...
John Bergsma
“Tempus fugit,” the Romans used to say. “Time flies.” It’s hard to believe that we are already at the second-to-last Sunday of the liturgical year. Where has the year gone? How can it be so close to the end already? Yet these feelings are very appropriate for Mass we will celebrate this Sunday, whose readings encourage us to count time carefully...

The desire for human respect can lead people to hell...
Jason Craig
Hell is an uncomfortable subject to say the least. It is not a perfect motivation for loving God either – He wants us to trust Him as a Father and return to Him, not to merely flee from the fear of eternal torment. Yet “the Church affirms the existence of hell and its eternity [for] those who die in a state of mortal... (Catechism of the Catholic Church...


Wise men, flattering, may deceive us...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Judas Maccabeus was Handel’s most famous oratorio during his lifetime, more popular even than the Messiah. There are many wonderful moments in it, especially its bold and brave choruses. Written in 1746, it covers the biblical events of 170–160 B.C., when Judea was ruled by the Seleucids and the people were compelled to worship Zeus...

5 more classics of Catholic spirituality for your library...
Fr. John Cush
In my last piece, I mentioned that I would suggest 10 good Catholic books that might be good additions to one’s library. The first five mentioned were rather diverse, with titles from Doctors of the Church like Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Saint Augustine of Hippo, and Saint Gregory the Great, as well as two 20th-century writers — Thomas Merton and Walter Ciszek...

St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, the first citizen of the United States to be declared a saint, was an industrious missionary in America.

Yet, throughout her missionary adventures, she possessed a profound soul that kept her close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus...

After Baltimore, here’s where things stand on the sexual abuse crisis...
John Allen
Now that the dust has settled on the U.S. bishops’ fall meeting in Baltimore - which was keenly anticipated in the run-up, and which turned out to be massively anti-climactic in the aftermath - it’s time to take preliminary stock of where things stand in the bishops’ efforts to respond to the clerical sexual abuse crisis. The agenda for the meeting was waylaid late afternoon on Sunday...

A hopeful sign amid the U.S. bishops’ failed Fall meeting...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
The most dramatic meeting of the U.S. bishops since 2002 ended in failure. Except that it did not entirely fail. It may in fact have signaled a critical turning point on the road to reform. The failure was evident. For months the leadership of the U.S. bishops have declared that the November plenary assembly was the time when concrete actions regarding accountability for bishops would be taken...

To the U.S. bishops: A (friendly) call to repentance and reform...
Janet Smith
Not only the US bishops but a significant portion of lay Catholics are discussing and pondering – almost obsessively — what can be done to address the sexual abuse crisis. A vast array of “solutions” has been proposed for dealing with who knew what, when, and who did what in respect to Archbishop McCarrick and how accusations of abuse of minors against bishops should be handled...


A foolish dreamer awakens in the Church at last...
Richard Evans
Many of you reading this are familiar with much of my journey and story. If you are, you likely know that I have had more than my share of struggles in my pursuit of Catholicism at her core. That core is chasing holiness. To quote the Baltimore Catechism, which I was raised on, in question 6 of the very 1st lesson: “Why did God make you...

A century after the armistice...
George Weigel
I’m just old enough to remember when my elders still called November 11 “Armistice Day”—the armistice in question being that which stopped the shooting in the Great War. As a military matter, World War I may have ended a century ago, on November 11, 1918, allowing my Grandfather Weigel and millions of other doughboys to be demobilized...


Vatican shocks U.S. bishops, while some journalists keep tight focus on child abuse — alone...
Terry Mattingly
It seems like an easy question: What are the sex scandals in the Catholic church all about? If you look at the coverage, week after week, it’s clear that many journalists covering the latest wave of news about the scandals are still wrestling with this issue. Obviously, the scandals center on acts of sexual abuse and harassment by Catholic clergy...


Motivation remains unclear for Vatican request that U.S. bishops delay action...
Edward Pentin
The Vatican has said it instructed U.S. bishops to delay voting on two key proposals on handling the sex-abuse crisis because it is committed to offering the “best evaluation and accompaniment” of the U.S. episcopate on the matter. In brief comments to the Register Nov. 13, Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops...
