Laudato Si and Romano Guardini

Typical excellence from Fr. Robert Barron: In 1986, after serving in a variety of capacities in the Jesuit province of Argentina, Jorge Mario Bergoglio commenced doctoral studies in Germany. The focus of his research was the great twentieth century theologian and cultural critic Romano Guardini, who had been a key influence on, among many others, [Read More...]

About Those Five Non-Negotiables, Donald Trump, Jimmy Carter, and Colossians 2:8

As I have mentioned in this space in the past, I think the five non-negotiables thing was well-intentioned. For them what don’t know, it was an attempt to prioritize abortion, euthanasia, Embryonic stem cell research, gay “marriage”, and human cloning and remind Catholic voters that these are things the Church cannot change its teaching on.

Gillis Harp Writes a Fine Piece for Crisis

…pointing out the obvious fact that capitalism, unmoored from all consideration except profit is as deadly an enemy to the Faith as Communism (perhaps more deadly since Communism kills the body while capitalism seduces the soul). He is instantly shouted down by a great crowd in the comboxes. And do not fear those who kill [Read More...]

Pope Receives Summer Re-Education Camp Arts and Crafts Project

So the Pope is in South America right now and at a recent audience, some guy brought him a geegaw as a diplomatic gift. It’s a truly ugly reworking of a hammer and sickle into a crucifix, and the pope’s magnificent “What the WTF?” expression .brings tears of laughter to my eyes. Here, watch for [Read More...]

Fr. Robert Barron Brings the Common Sense, Faith, and Hope

… to the SCOTUS decision: So what do we do? We continue to put forth our point of view winsomely, invitingly, and non-violently, loving our opponents and reaching out to those with whom we disagree. As St. John Paul II said, the Church always proposes, never imposes. And we take a deep breath, preparing for [Read More...]

Laudato Si’s Christian prayer in union with Creation

Any Christian who thinks such a prayer is “New Age” is utterly ignorant of the psalms. A Christian prayer in union with creation Father, we praise you with all your creatures.

Laudato Si’s Light Yoke

One of the remarkable things about the encyclical is the tininess of the concrete steps it asks ordinary people to take.  There was much cow-having in the rightwingosphere over the trivial example Francis made of using air conditioning a little less and fans a little more.  Likewise, among the secularists many pants were wetted over [Read More...]

A word of thanks to all who respond to prayer requests

I started running prayer requests several years ago for a simple reason: I’m terrible at prayer.  I cleverly decided that since I’m so lousy at it, I would post the prayers I got from various folks in the hope and trust that *some*body out in my readership actually had charisms of intercession.  Result: tons more [Read More...]
