Fr. Robert Barron on Woody Allen’s Bleak Vision

            I was chagrined, but not entirely surprised, when I read Woody Allen’s recent ruminations on ultimate things.  To state it bluntly, Woody could not be any bleaker in regard to the issue of meaning in the universe.  We live, he said, in a godless and purposeless world.  The earth came into existence through mere [Read More...]

British cops overlook child sex trafficking ring…

…because they didn’t want to look racist. And by “racist” they meant “critical of Muslims”. The Church is caught between two diseased forms of spirituality: a watery secular spirituality that preserves in distorted and dilute forms certain virtues about “tolerance” and “diversity” out of the Christian tradition, and an inflamed and violent spirituality that preserves [Read More...]

A reader writes a very kind letter about Mary, Mother of the Son

Sez he: I am a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Seattle starting my first year of the theology at Mount Angel Seminary.

The Foggy Mysticism of Pro-Choice Rhetoric

I’m told that Christians hate science and go for mystical mumbo jumbo. But when the topic turns to abortion, it’s fascinating that prochoice rhetoric instantly turns to blather about the “mystery” of when human life begins and what human life is: all that stuff that is just so far above Obama’s pay grade that he [Read More...]

For those interested in the plight of refugees…

Kirk Morrison writes: Kirk from the American Solidarity Party and Christian Democracy Magazine here. Just wanted to pass along an initiative we’re working on and your readers might also be interested in. I should add (although it should go without saying) that we support refugee status for the young Central Americas crossing the border too. [Read More...]

Prayer Request

A reader writes: I’m asking prayers for a friend’s daughter who, after suffering four miscarriages, is 20 weeks into a new pregnancy but has just been diagnosed with cervical cancer. If she can hold on for at least another month, the baby can be delivered before her treatment starts and both may survive. Father, hear [Read More...]

When Standard and Poors is Warning about Income Inequality…

…it‘s okay to ignore the prattle about “class envy” from the usual apologists for Class Warfare against the poor and acknowledge that we are facing a very serious problem. Catholics would do well to consider the possibility that Pope Francis, speaking out of the same Tradition as his predecessors, knows what he’s talking about. So, [Read More...]

Destroy the Legion of Christ

The Legion needs to be destroyed bolt by bolt, piece by piece, until there is nothing left of this Maciel-glorifying robot. Machines don’t do what you want them to do. They do what they are designed to do. The Legion is a machine built by a monster of demonic evil to a) facilitate his crimes [Read More...]

Prayer Request from a Returning Catholic

He writes: I’ll try to keep what is a long story for me a short one for you.  I was baptized, had first confession, first communion, confirmation and was raised Catholic in that weddings, funerals, Christmas and Easter sort of way many people are.  Over the years I began questioning everything and I converted to [Read More...]
