  • How I Stayed Catholic at Harvard ... every Christian must be a "disciple." Or, as Blessed John Henry Newman says in many places, every Christian serious about his faith must commit to living "under a rule."Aurora Griffin, the author of "How I Stayed Catholic at Harvard" (Ignatius Press, 2016), studied classics at Harvard, won a Rhodes Scholarship to Oxford, where she studied theology, and has accepted a job offer with the prestigious consulting firm, McKinsey. That is quite a series of credentials. And now she has written her first book.By its title you might suppose that the book is another offering in the genre of "how to stay Catholic in a hostile secular environment." Yet it is not that, but rather an enthusiastic recommendation for ...

  • Why we should address Jesus as ‘thou’ December 5th, 2016By Bishop Robert BarronOn the final morning of the November meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, we were treated to a fine sermon by Archbishop J. Peter Sartain. The leader of the church in Seattle spent a good deal of time discussing Pier Giorgio Frassati, a saint from the early-20th century to whom he and I both have a strong devotion. But what particularly struck me in his homily was a reference to the great St. Catherine of Siena. One of the most remarkable things about that remarkable woman was the intimacy which she regularly experienced with Mary, the saints, and the Lord Jesus himself. Archbishop Sartain relayed a story reported by ...

  • Vatican and Vietnam close to normalizing ties Overshadowed by current secret talks — and a possible breakthrough agreement — between the Vatican and China after 65 years of estrangement, Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang’s trip to the Vatican last Wednesday (Nov. 23) did not attract a good deal of international attention. Mr. Quang’s Vatican visit — during which he was privately received by Pope Francis and held talks with the Holy See’s Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin and Secretary for Relations with the States Archbishop Paul Gallagher — was the sixth by a Vietnamese leader since 2007. All of this shows, while Beijing has just secretly entered talks with the Vatican this year, its communist comrades in Hanoi have long established high-level dialogue with the latter ...

  • Pope to Georgian Catholics: imitate St. Therese's 'little way' Vatican City, Oct 1, 2016 / 01:52 am (CNA/EWTN News).- It’s important to follow the example of St. Therese's “little way,” trusting in God and his consolation with the faith a small child, Pope Francis said Saturday, which marked the feast of the young saint and Doctor of the Church.Quoting from her autobiography, he said St. Therese “shows her 'little way' to God, the trust of a little child who falls asleep without fear in his Father’s arms, because 'Jesus does not demand great actions from us, but simply surrender and gratitude.'”“To receive God’s love we need this littleness of heart: only little ones can be held in their mothers’ arms,” the Pope ...

One day, while cleaning a garden in Lahore, the twenty-seven-year-old Pakistani Catholic was accused of deliberately piling garbage against the wall of a mosque.

We Are Catholic

What does it mean to be Catholic in today's world? There are many lies and distortions placed upon the Church by the world and the evil spirits that prowl it. So we must proclaim the truth loudly!

Catholic Priest: 'Your Soul Will Be In Grave Danger' If You Vote For Pro-Abortion Politicians

Citing the 5th Commandment, "thou shall not kill," the Catholic Rev. John Lankeit said he was bound to speak out in defense of the most innocent and vulnerable in society -- babies in the womb -- and that faithful Catholics must do the same, especially in this election year. He added that if a Catholic votes for a candidate who supports abortion, then that Catholic's "soul will be in grave danger."

"Make no mistake!" said Fr. Lankeit, the pastor of the Saints Simon & Jude Cathedral in Phoenix, Ariz. "There is no single issue that threatens innocent human life more directly, consistently, imminently and urgently than the deliberate killing of baby boys and baby girls in their mother’s womb. No issue!"
