Technician details harvesting fetal parts for Planned Parenthood in latest video


A simple reminder: Pray for police...
Simcha Fisher
Whenever we hear a siren, I tell the kids, "Let's pray for whoever is in trouble," figuring that covers anyone who's had an accident, anyone whose house is on fire, anyone who's the victim of a crime, or even anyone who's committed a crime. The other day, a police car went by our van, and my husband said...


Fishing with a poverty of spirit...
Seth DeMoor
Poverty of spirit, what is it? Reflections from Fr. Michael O’Laughlin reveal a humble way of examining our daily life. The Byzantine Catholic tradition flourishes in this video from a faithful servant of God in Denver, Colorado.


Jesus wins again. He always wins, always...
Rick Becker
“You have your swimsuit on,” my son Nicky observed. “Does that mean you’re going to swim?” “May-be,” I replied, adding a bit of upward lift to the second syllable. Nicky correctly interpreted this as an affirmation. “Yes,” he hissed with a fist pump, and turning to Katharine, “Papa’s going to get in this time...


It's time to end this national nightmare...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
“The most disgusting part of this to me is these folks lied, lied to gain access to clinics,” Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards said on This Week Sunday, in reference to the undercover videos showcasing Planned Parenthood executives talking about selling fetal body parts (including a now-infamous Lamborghini reference)...


Following end of ban on gay leaders, will religious Boy Scout Troops be tolerated?


The pro-life moment is here...
John Paul Shimek
The Weekly Standard is reporting that US Congresswoman Diane Black (R-TN-06) has introduced the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 (H.R. 3134)into the House of Representatives. Some eighty original co-sponsors are supporting the legislative effort, which would have the result of placing “an immediate moratorium on all federal funding of Planned Parenthood for the span of one year while Congress conducts a full investigation into the organization’s activities...


What’s the cure for a case of Stifling Museumishness? Take your kids to the museum with you...


Paper or plasma? How are you reading this summer?
Sean Fitzpatrick
Summertime is a favorite time for some favorite reading—but in these times, and in these summers, the issue is not simply, “What is to be read?” but “How is it to be read?” Readers are not only what they read, but also how they read; and civilized readers should not read like boors. Thus, they face a bizarre, if not boorish...


What I learned after losing my comb...
Fr. James Schall
Though I keep my hair quite short so I do not need it, I place a small pocket comb on a shelf next to the washbasin. It has been there for several years now. It is black in color, quite obvious there beside the toothbrush, drinking glass, and other small items. Usually, one does not consciously notice these things separately, but knows they are there nonetheless...


Behold, the ancient Christian art of the Roman catacombs...


I'm afraid that we're in the midst of the grandest of lies, and one that's in full force...

What every pro-lifer needs to know about the U.S. Senate and Planned Parenthood...
Rebecca Hamilton
They’re like a giant ball, rolling through the hallways, with wiggling arms and legs sticking out and yells and screams emanating from within. Who? Why, the majority party of the United States Senate, of course. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocked amendments to the necessary and tough-to-veto Highway Bill. Among those amendments he killed was language defunding Planned Parenthood...


Hunger and hallucinations: How the stages of starvation describe the decaying West...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Yesterday’s post dealt with the capacity of this world, by God’s promise, to provide sufficient food for us. While hunger does exist, it is due more to human sinfulness than insufficient resources. But even more prevalent these days than physical hunger is spiritual hunger, if not outright starvation. As is the case with physical hunger...


10 "isms" that are destroying the Church...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
One of the talks I present when I am conducting a parish mission is “The Attack of the Isms” and portray them as an alien attack on rational earthlings. I discuss twelve different forms of relativism, and as Pope Benedict referred to “the dictatorship of Relativism” notice how all ten lead to tyranny of one kind or another...


From the good old days to the hellish ISIS days for Christians in the Middle East? Really?
Terry Mattingly
At the time of 9/11, I was living in South Florida and attending an Eastern Orthodox parish in which the majority of the members were, by heritage, either Palestinian, Syrian or Lebanese. Needless to say, I spent quite a bit of time hearing the details of their family stories – about life in the old country and the forces that pushed them to America...


Belated thanks to Roger Cardinal Mahony...
Karl Keating
As my first book was going through the publishing process at Ignatius Press, the editors sought endorsements from prominent Catholics. Among those who were asked for a blurb was Roger Mahony, then Archbishop of Los Angeles, a see to which he was appointed in 1985. (Six years later he was named a cardinal.) Three weeks after receiving the manuscript of my book...

5 things Christians shouldn't say to atheists...
Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble
I recently returned from a trip to Iowa where I met so many wonderful people, but two people in particular have stuck in my mind. While I was sharing my story during a talk to a parish youth group, I noticed one teenager slumped in his chair. His posture screamed, “Not interested” but his eyes were alert. He listened intently...

The Trinitarian God has made the cosmos in His image...
Joseph Pearce
Many months ago I wrote an essay for The Imaginative Conservative entitled “The Mysteries of Atheism” in which I highlighted the mysterious trinity which all atheists acknowledge, albeit without knowing it; or, to be precise, the two trinities that they unknowingly acknowledge, namely, the trinity of space and the trinity of time...
