More good news on the pro-life and social justice front. “Lock em up and throw away the key” doesn’t mesh with Catholic social teaching, especially in regards to minor offenses.

becket: Click on the above link to see the USCCB’s website evangelizing marriage, called For Your Marriage. It’s a great website with some insightful articles and statistics and explanations of how the Church views marriage and just what couples are being invited into. This is exactly the type of resource that we need a lot more of. The sad fact is that in our crazy culture so many people...

topraisetoblesstopreach: The Wall Street Journal: Much of the film portrays a skeptical Colin O’Donoghue having a crisis of faith. Did you have a similar struggle with doubt? That part is actually fictionalized. I would say this. The first few weeks in Rome, I was very skeptical about what I was seeing in terms of the manifestations. Were they really real or was it a placebo effect or what...

Handout for Talk "St. Peter: The First Pope"
The pope is easily the most well known figure of the Catholic world. His quotations and thoughts are consistently front page news in our newspapers, and millions of people flock to see him when he travels. It is a far cry from beginnings of the Church, when accepting the office of the papacy meant almost certain death in the face of constant Roman persecution (many of the popes were martyred). ...

The Apologetic Substitute →
Some really interesting thoughts in this article. I really agree with a lot of it. I think I really kindled my faith with many of the “apologetics” that the article cites. After a while though, I saw that it did lead to Pharisee-ism, and wasn’t holistic enough in its approach to the Christian life. The Church has a blue print for good formation of the Christian person when it...
