Prayer Request

A reader writes: Between my small income and that of my wife, it seems we come up more and more short every month. Medical bills, childcare costs, and student debt are all big drains. For multiple reasons, neither I nor my wife have the luxury of staying home to cut costs. I would be happy [Read More...]

Fr. Robert Barron on Laudato Si and the Pope’s Recent Comments on Capitalism

Customary thoughtful common sense from Fr. Barron, punctuated across the blogosphere by outraged people asking absurd questions like “Why do we have to understand the context of the pope’s remarks?” I remember when Catholics understood that texts needed to be read in the context of the Tradition?  When did so many of us morph into fundamentalists? [Read more...]

A reader asks about explaining mortal and venial sin to Evangelicals

He writes: I enjoyed reading your blog this morning and have a quick question regarding “sin is sin.”  Today I was shocked by what some of my conservative evangelical friends told me about what was said in church yesterday about the Supreme Court ruling on marriage.  They all expressed sadness, but a naïve lack of concern about [Read More...]

Prayer Requests

A reader writes: A few months ago my husband and I discovered that our son has been smoking pot. We’ve been working with counselors and specialists since then and thought that things were getting better and that he stopped using. Apparently we underestimated the great powers of deception that drug users have. Last night we [Read More...]

You meet such interesting people when you blog

A reader writes: Let me start off with the narcissism of small differences, where all truly Modern conversations begin: I like you already. I was a cradle Catholic–a lukewarm one, albeit with perfect-ish attendance. Plenty of seeds. Shallow roots. After that I went to college, where I dressed up as a drunken communist who was [Read More...]

Chesterton vs. the Woolly-Minded

A reader writes, “If God is love why would he care who you love or how many.” Which reminds me inexorably of the Prophet Chesterton’s essay “The Usual Article” (in The Thing: Why I Am a Catholic) in which he replies to a letter to the editor that says pretty much exactly the same thing [Read More...]

Backfire: The Facts Were Bad Enough

America takes a look at the whole Planned Parenthood video and I now fear it is, once again, going to backfire on the prolife movement. The real horror of the video (and monstrous horror it is) is the PP rep’s casual discussion, over fava beans and a nice chianti, of her crushing and shredding human [Read More...]
