The Five Foundations for Discernment On the Path to God's Peace

It is not enough to merely know about God or even to practice our faith — we must know him intimately. This is the path of the mystics, but it is also the path to heaven.

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. …

"The Holy Catholic Church is our Mother. In a culture of death, She not only preserves the spark of life but transmits that life to a dying culture." -Fr. George Rutler

Physical science can tell us only about the bare fact of things. The “why” of things comes from the God Who orders all facts. Believe in God, and you live the truth; deny God, and you have to come up with lies. All that we are is because there is a God — a Three-in-One …

Those who pray first rise from their knees equipped for a battle which ultimately is not against “flesh and blood” but “principalities and powers.”

There is no arguing that we are facing a crisis of immense proportions in the Church. We most likely wince at the daily headlines of scandal, accusations, cover-ups, doublespeak, and unfaithfulness to vows, teaching, and immorality within the hierarchy of the Church—all of which leave her vulnerab...

The Priests We Need to Save the Church

"The Priests We Need" is a paean by a devout layman, for a worthy priest, to confront clerical malaise. Mr. Wells extends the virtues of priestly ministries he has known and studied into a rule he believes normative for all effective priestly ministries.

Kevin Wells pleads for the recovering of a Roman Catholic priesthood steeped in the muscular Christianity of bygone days. Invoking especially the memories of his murdered monsignor-uncle, he makes a fervent layman’s appeal for priests to abandon the niceness and complacency that have contributed t...

Through the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mary, souls are rescued, graces procured, and the plans of the devil intercepted.

“I am the Lady of the Rosary.” These are the words of the Blessed Virgin Mary when she revealed her identity to three children of Fatima, Portugal, in 1917. She taught them, “Pray, pray very much, and make sacrifices for sinners; for many souls go to hell, because there are none to sacrifice t...

Author hopes readers will reconnect to 'beauty, power' of the sacraments

For each sacrament, "Spirit and Life" provides its readers with a scriptural passage and explanatory paragraphs from the Catechism of the Catholic Church; a historical commentary on that particular sacrament written by a church father or a pope; and a reflection penned by a contemporary Catholic.

Rose Rea's name may be on the cover of the book, but she downplays her role in the creation of "Spirit and Life: The Holy Sacraments of the Catholic Church," published by Sophia Institute Press.

The Saints Can Teach Us How to Control Our Anger

St. Francis de Sales advises that, to avoid the sin of anger, you must quickly ask God to give peace to your heart when you’re angered and then turn your thoughts to something else.

“Let every man be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger, for the anger of man does not work the righteousness of God.” — James 1:19-20 Do you have a fierce temper? If so, you’re in good company: some of the saints were known for this — a characteristic that, with God’s help, …
