Care for the poor, says Pope Francis, for “they are your passport to paradise”


DC’s newly-opened Museum of the Bible highlights the Holy Book and time-honored treasures...
Thomas McDonald
Every museum has its controversies, but few topics are more filled with potential pitfalls than the Bible and its history. The Museum of the Bible, which opened to the public Nov. 18, embraces those controversies, creating a multimedia space that explores the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures in all of their many confounding aspects...

Hell has to be...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Today we come to the final of the Four Last Things: Hell. I have written extensively on this topic over the years, largely in response to the widespread dismissal of the revealed doctrine of Hell. In contradiction to Scripture, many presume that Hell is an unlikely destination for most. Never mind that Jesus taught just the opposite (e...

SDG reviews ‘The Star’...
Deacon Steven Greydanus
Two of my favorite Bible movies are animated films that came out within a couple of years of each other nearly two decades ago. One is the brilliant 2000 stop-motion Jesus movie The Miracle Maker, co-created by U.K. and Russian animators who also collaborated on a series of Old Testament shorts (Testament: The Bible in Animation)...


Muslims are converting to Christianity in record numbers...
Patti Armstrong
“We are in a time of the first ever mass conversions of Muslims,” Father Mitch Pacwa SJ told me in a phone interview. “God is doing a mighty work among them.” Pacwa is a host for EWTN radio and TV, a frequent pilgrim guide to the Holy Land and is fluent in 13 languages including Arabic. He is considered an expert on the Middle East and produced the DVD Christianity & Islam: Are We at War...


Things really are changing. Prepare for the new Puritanism...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
What does this new and unexpected social phenomenon mean? I think it indicates that a new generation of women don’t give two hoots about the old feminist agenda. The main objectives for women have been pretty much obtained-fair pay and fair treatment in the workplace. Now a new generation of women is saying, “We don’t have to put up with the harassment and objectification that still continues...

On losing my faithful dog Moby, whom I loved...
David Mills
Sunday began like any Sunday, except that I slept a little later than usual and woke to a lovely fall day. It ended with my sitting cross-legged on the floor of Exam Room # 2, holding my dog Moby’s head in my lap, with our two youngest children on either side of him, my son burying his face in the crook of his arm, as the vet put him to sleep...


Why Naumann's big win over Cupich isn't necessarily all about Pope Francis...
John Allen
Elections within the U.S. bishops' conference are more akin to races for department chairs at a university, or officers in a social club, than a U.S. congressional race, meaning that the personal often triumphs over the political. As a result, yesterday's victory of Archbishop Joseph Naumann of Kansas City, Kansas over Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago may have been in part a referendum on Pope Francis...

Clear doctrine strengthens the Church...
Fr. George Rutler
The Baptist church in Sutherland Springs, Texas has been made a shrine, for the massacre there has left it a hallowed place for mourners. A red rose marks where each of the victims died, and then there is one pink rose. That is for the unborn baby that died in the womb. To the frustration of some, Texas is one of 38 states that recognize an infant in utero as a victim when the mother is assaulted...


“I therefore order the following”: Francis bets even more on the nuncios, including the black sheep...
Sandro Magister
The resolution with which Pope Francis endows the Vatican secretariat of state with a third section on an equal level with the two already existing is in a letter that he wrote in mid-October to cardinal secretary of state Pietro Parolin. The following is the executive part of the pope’s letter: “In the conviction, therefore...

Live from Friar Field: A Blessed for Detroit...
Rocco Palmo
It's like deja vu – this time, just bigger. Much bigger. Less than two months since the first-ever beatification of a priest on US soil, today in Detroit brings an even more massive moment, as the Church takes over the city's NFL field and a crowd of 75,000 witnesses the rites elevating the beloved local Capuchin Fr Solanus Casey to the step before sainthood...


Have women you love left the faith? Here's why...
Carrie Gress
I recently spoke on Catholic Answers about Mary and the modern woman. A man called in asking about his daughter, saying that although he homeschooled her and taught her the catechism, at 17, she now had little regard for the Church. It was clear he was struggling with how he had failed her. Based on what he told me, this concerned dad was not the problem...


God’s Elect in the First Epistle of Clement...
Jimmy Akin
Calvinist theology places a great deal of emphasis on the concept of God’s elect. The term “elect” is taken from the Greek word eklektos, which means “chosen.” In Calvinist thought, the elect are those that have been chosen by God to be saved on the last day. The Westminster Confession of Faith states, “God hath appointed the elect unto glory” (3:6)...

Married priests can’t make up for missionary failure...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
It is not quite right to say that married priests are coming to the Catholic Church — they have been here for quite some time. But recent decisions by Pope Francis mean that something new is almost certainly coming in a few years — the ordination of married men to the priesthood for the Amazon region of South America. Whether it will be extended more widely remains to be seen...

As the Bard might say...
George Weigel
Four centuries after his death, Shakespeare remains a peerless playwright because of his remarkable insight into the human condition. Love, ambition, fear, guilt, nobility, pomposity, patriotism, absurdity, sheer wickedness – you name it, Will grasped something of its essence. His work continues to help us understand ourselves better because...
