Ex-Legionary, Fox News personality Father Jonathan Morris asks to leave the priesthood...
Inés San Martín
Father Jonathan Morris, a former member of the Legion of Christ who was at one time among the most prominent Catholic priests in America as a contributor to Fox News, has asked to be dismissed from the clerical state, indicating he wants to be free to “marry and have a family” though saying it’s not about an “existing relationship...


A Christian gentleman in the nation’s capital...
George Weigel
Clement Attlee once described Winston Churchill as akin to a layer cake: one never knew which layer of his personality would be displayed at a given moment — the 17th-century Churchill, imaginatively riding across the battlefields of Europe with his great ancestor, Marlborough; the 18th-century Churchill, standing in Parliament alongside Edmund Burke; the man born into 19th-century aristocracy at Blenheim Palace; the colossus of the democratic 20th century; or the visionary of the 21st century...


New D.C. leader says of facing abuse crisis again: ‘I’m not afraid’...
John Allen
Seventeen years ago, a charismatic young African-American bishop of Belleville, Illinois, rose to national prominence as president of the U.S. bishops’ conference at a time when the clerical sexual abuse crisis exploded in Boston in 2002, and then quickly rippled across the country. In a dark moment for the American Church, many Catholics felt Wilton Gregory was a rare point of light...

With America’s Vatican ‘checkup’ on tap, the reports come due...
Rocco Palmo
Even more than usual, the last 11 months have seen no shortage of notable stories come up, only to get washed out within hours by the latest curveball on the crisis front. Among other instances, this happened last July when – at the start of what should've been a quiet summer weekend – a Friday night saw the first report of plans for the all-important ad limina visit of the US bishops: American Catholicism's first Roman "exam" in the age of Francis ...


9 things I wish I could go back in time to tell my young self about the Faith...
Mary Jo Gerd
I occasionally like to reimagine what my life might look like if I could have a heart-to-heart with that 12-year-old kid I used to be. What if I could share with her all that I’ve learned about the beauty and genius of the Catholic Church? What if I could shake her and tell her to take a plunge into the depth of her faith? I consider myself blessed to be finally gaining some fluency...

Mainstream press still ignoring church vandalism in France — even after Notre Dame fire...
Clemente Lisi
It has been exactly a month since a fire destroyed the roof and spire of Notre Dame in Paris, leaving the Catholic world — and beyond — in shock over the destruction of such an important structure in Christendom and Western Civilization. In the days and weeks that followed, we were treated to news coverage that was exceptional to the ordinary to the downright bizarre...


8 questions every Catholic leader should answer...
Marcel LeJeune
Church renewal is really hard. In fact, merely managing the daily grind of running a parish (or diocese / ministry) can be hard. That means trying to do all of the day-to-day and still make time for growth, evangelization, discipleship, change, renewal, and more is VERY hard. Yet, it is still worth it. If you believe it is worth the time...

On the sufferings of St. Paul and the price of the Gospel...
Msgr. Charles Pope
As we turn in this week of Easter to the Acts of Paul section of the Acts of the Apostles, we do well to ponder the kinds of sufferings the apostles endured to announce the gospel and win souls for Christ. In the “softer” Church of the declining West, it is hard for us even to imagine such suffering. How many Catholics today can even bear to rouse themselves to get to an hour-long Mass on Sunday...


Alabama’s abortion bill and what it means to be pro-life...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
I’m a pro life priest. We have a strong and active pro life ministry in our parish. Every year we take a bus and March for Life. We pray at the abortion clinic. We support Birthright–our local support group for women in crisis pregnancies. We encourage and support families who foster and adopt. I’m happy about the Alabama vote...

The Kingdom of Love: The readings for the 5th Sunday of Easter...
John Bergsma
The Easter Season is passing quickly. Already it is more than half over, as we progress toward the great Feasts of Ascension and Pentecost. We want the Season to slow down, so that we may savor the joy and consolation of these readings from Acts and John that dominate the Easter Cycle, but tempus fugit. The Readings for this Fifth Sunday of Easter describe the growth of the Kingdom of God...

How the Resurrection transforms you from a tomb to a temple...
R. Jared Staudt
Easter marks the time that brought us from death to life. We became a new creation in Baptism, through which we died and rose with Christ. It changed us from a tomb, a place of spiritual death, to a temple of the Holy Spirit. We might compare this transformation to the Holy Sepulcher: it was a place of death but now testifies to the living presence of Christ...

What should my child know about his Catholic Faith?
Marlon De La Torre
A predicament I often discover with how parents raise their child is the question about the child’s overall development. I argue most parents want to be sure their child is appropriately cared for and that their overall physical, physiological, mental and academic development is on par. However, a parent’s consumption of the physical...

When sex ed goes over the top, it’s children who lose...
Fr. Regis Scanlon
Colorado’s House Bill 19-1032 which passed recently, calls for “comprehensive sex education” for our children in Colorado schools. While it is difficult to determine what elements of sexual activity will be studied and at what age this will be given to children to learn, the word “comprehensive” is a hint of what is to come...
