A Model Pope

Pius V was not a “political” Pope. Instead, he lived his lofty mission in a supernatural manner, with his gaze fixed solely on the glory of God and the good of souls.

By Roberto de Mattei - The cardinals who elect the next Pope need a model to look to, and in order to find one, it will be necessary to look to the past.

Sermons on the importance of the family Rosary, the fruits of a weekly family Holy Hour, or even the need for a devoted prayer life are all but forgotten in Catholic America, because many priests don’t spend private, intentional time listening to God and speaking to Him themselves." -Kevin Wells, The Priests We Need to Save the Church

What is the point of faith, and, in particular, of the Catholic Faith?

Written in a welcoming style, this straightforward book provides a clear, compelling answer to that question. As such, it’s meant for non-Catholics who are curious about the Catholic Faith, for cradle Catholics who may never have really understood the Faith, and for longtime Catholics who’ve begun to question the Faith and may even be thinking of leaving it.

“I Can Find Heaven on Earth” The person who says this usually means he hopes to find happiness by the accumulation of riches. Although it seems that few people actually make that statement, a good number live as if that were their goal. The fictional play Doctor Faustus portrays a man who propos...

Holy Thursday is the day when only one hour is given the Christian to rejoice in an inestimable favor: “The Lord Jesus, on the night in which He was betrayed, took bread, and giv­ing thanks, broke it, and said, ‘This is my body which shall be given up for you; do this in remembrance of […]

Why Muslim Politicians Vote For Gay Marriage

William Kilpatrick writes: “Historically, Christianity has been Europe’s strongest bulwark against Islamization. That heritage has been squandered to the point where it is almost lost.” His most recent book, “What Catholics Need to Know About Islam,” is an effort to reclaim that heritage.

While Islam has receded from the public mind, Islamic ambitions remain intact. President Biden is poised to facilitate those objectives.

Aladdin meets 'Chosen' in new picture book for Lent

The marked difference with Benedictus, of course, is that it is patterned exclusively on the traditional liturgy, and draws on the piety and scholarship of the ages of faith.

As the Vatican continues its bizarre feud with the venerable Roman Rite, going so far as to prohibit the offering of the Ancient Mass in St. Peter’s upper basilica (the very Mass for which that basilica was built), it is […]
