Staff Spotlight: Meet Rico McCahon, Sophia's devoted and dependable database director.

When not solving problems, adding efficiencies, and keeping our systems humming, Rico enjoys roaming the hallways for whimsical chat, decocting recipes from our cookbooks, and being the first to read, and spin, our latest books.

We're grateful for his serene and cheerful presence, dry sense of humor, and thorough lack of interest, and comprehension, of even the most basic pop culture references (e.g., The Brady Bunch, Ghostbusters, "May the Force be with you" The Beatles, etc.).

Hell Hath No Fury Like a Female Democratic Senator Scorned | The American Spectator | USA News and Politics

Op-ed from "The Politics of Envy" author Anne Hendershott:

"The truly envious are the truly prideful who believe that no one is more deserving of advantages and rewards than they. All of this was on display in the Senate chambers as the Democratic senators vented their resentful rage on Judge Barrett."

In the Barrett hearings, Senator Klobuchar’s lament, “I might have thought someday I’d be sitting in that chair,” was the most revealing.

Rethinking the Enlightenment - Crisis Magazine

"The Catholic Enlightenment generally adopted a temperate attitude toward change. It did not promote an ideology of political revolution. It did not look for cultural conflict. Rather, the Catholic Enlightenment’s major characteristics included compromise, conciliation, and moderation."

“We are victims of our century,” wrote one of the Carmelites of Compiègne before going to the guillotine in 1794, “and we must sacrifice ourselves that it be reconciled to God.” Attacks on Catholic churches, anti-Christian elites, and suffocating political correctness—the eighteenth centu...

Transcending our Temptations: Advice from St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Because Saint Margaret Mary walked along the path of suffering and humiliation during her earthly life, her words have a distinct power to address our own personal temptations and sufferings.

One good source of inspiration for all vocations and lifestyles is the Letters of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque. Saint Margaret Mary was a French Visitation nun who received revelations from the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Robert Royal: The Attacks on Columbus Expose the Crisis of the West

We have many fellow citizens who have never been properly taught about their culture, are deeply alienated from their own civilization in the Americas, and therefore believe that the only moral thing to do is to reject it from its very origins, with Columbus.

#columbusday

The violent attitude of many protesters towards Christopher Columbus has less to do with the historical record and more to do with a crisis within Western civilization.

A Long-Hidden Heritage “Where can I learn the Faith?” For centuries, this question has prompted men and women to seek after clear and concise reference texts for Catholic doctrine: a need often met by catechisms, those humble guidebooks for an average readership, simply restating Church teaching...

In honor of today's feat of the Holy Archangels, we're sharing a prayer from Fr. Gabriele Amorth's "An Exorcist Explains the Demonic".

Prayer for Deliverance (approved for the laity):

My Lord, You are all powerful, You are God, You are Father.

We beg You through the intercession and help
Of the Archangels Michael, Raphael, and Gabriel
for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters
who are enslaved by the Evil One.
All saints of heaven, come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness, and obsessions,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

From hatred, fornication, envy,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

From every thought of suicide and abortion,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

From every form of sinful sexuality,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

From every division in our family, and every harmful
friendship,
We beg You, free us, O Lord.

From every sort of evil spell, malefice, witchcraft,
and every form of occult,

We beg You, free us, O Lord.

Lord, You who said, “I leave you peace, my peace I give you,” grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell and enjoy Your peace always. In the name of Christ,
our Lord. Amen.

You Can Intercede for Others on the Spot

"If we are going to pray better on the spot, we need to be better about making prayer the center of our lives. The absence of a constant prayer life will lead to the absence of following through on prayer requests."

-Joseph Hollcraft, Unleashing the Power of Intercessory Prayer

Spontaneous prayer arises from the heart of contemplation. The more we withdraw into the deep caverns of our hearts, the greater the desire we will have to intercede on the spot.
