Brandon Vogt’s Least Read Blog Post? That Would Be This One…

Originally posted on July 15, 2010, almost one year before The Church and New Media burst onto the scene.

Another week, another pithy review of European History. I have to think that when Belloc wrote this book in 1936, he was at the height of his literary abilities. [Read more...]

Did You Know St. Thomas Aquinas Preached A Sermon on Lying?

I didn’t either, until earlier this year when I picked up a copy of The Aquinas Catechism, published by Sophia Institute Press.

Francisco De Osuna’s Little Guide On The Dangers of Gossiping

A few days ago, Pope Francis gave a homily in which he warns folks against gossiping, and instead calls us to focus on following Jesus. It’s another of his wonderful string of homilies delivered in the chapel of the Casa Santa Marta where he resides. Perhaps one day, these gems will  be known as the Little Way of Pope Francis.

As il Papa notes, gossiping is something that we love to do. [Read more...]

The Conversion of Takashi Nagai, And His Vocation of Love

All the buzz a few months back was the cause for the sainthood of Dorothy Day. The New York Times even weighed in on her cause, though they don’t quite know what to make of her, and of Catholics who admire her for being, how can I put this…Catholic.

Jesus giving St. Peter the Keys

Which also helps explain why when the Catholic Church holds a teaching as being true, there will be no modification of it. I’ll discuss a few examples of this in the near future.

But first, Monsignor Benson, a convert from the Church of England, helps make it clear for Christians of all stripes how the Church interacts with the Deposit of Faith. Especially in terms of when She speaks as the voice of Christ to the world. [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 9, Easter Saturday)

This is the eve of Divine Mercy Sunday and we are back to where we started. On this, the final day, we pray for lukewarm Christians. [Read more...]

For The Divine Mercy: A Novena (Day 5, Easter Tuesday)

 

It is the fifth day that we are praying the Divine Mercy novena.  And it is being prayed worldwide, not only by we few (we happy few) YIM Catholic readers, but by other Catholic Christians as well. They hail from every clime and place, to borrow a phrase from the Marine Corps hymn. And on this day from all of us around the globe, Our Lord asks us to pray for the unity of His Church.
