America Magazine - The Jesuit Review The Jesuit Review of Faith and Culture America magazine was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1909 as a Catholic weekly review of faith and culture.

The first editor in chief was John J. Wynne, S.J. (1859-1948), who also conceived the idea of the Catholic Encyclopedia, the first volume of which appeared in 1907 under his direction. From 1892 Wynne edited a devotional Catholic monthly, The Messenger of the Sacred Heart.

When’s the last time you called grandma? Pope Francis’ homily for the World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly

"We need a new covenant between young and old. We need to share the treasure of life, to dream together, to overcome conflicts between generations and to prepare a future for everyone."

How do we see our grandparents and elderly persons? When was the last time we visited or telephoned an elderly person in order to show our closeness and to benefit from what they have to tell us?

If young people and elderly don’t meet and talk, “history does not go on, life does not go on. We need to resume this: I...

Pope Francis celebrates grandparents on first World Day for elderly

If young people and elderly don’t meet and talk, “history does not go on, life does not go on. We need to resume this: It is a challenge for our culture. Grandparents have the right to dream while watching young people, and young people have the right to prophecy by taking sap from grandparents,'' Pope Francis said.

The pope urged people everywhere to reach out to older generations.

Christ breaks down no doors. He always knocks, but the smallest crack allows him to enter.

Aquinas once asked: What if a dog consumed a consecrated host?

Christ breaks down no doors. He always knocks, but the smallest crack allows him to enter.

St. Thomas teaches that a brute animal, who might consume the body and blood of Christ, would not receive Holy Communion, because sacraments are ordered towards faith.

"Might Catholics become more attentive to God’s presence if catechists devoted more effort to cultivating the “inner senses” in addition to explicating doctrine?"

How do believers "make God real"? And what effect do these beliefs and practices have on their lives? A new book by T.M. Luhrmann asks these questions and more.

Lesson from Hungary: Anti-Catholicism is not a good response to anti-L.G.B.T.Q. laws

The Hungarian law extends a ban on teaching critical gender theory in schools. The United States is in the middle of a similar culture-war debate about critical race theory.

Some activists in Hungary have reacted to an anti-L.G.B.T.Q. law by calling for an investigation of the clergy sexual abuse crisis, writes Marc Roscoe Loustau. But turning the crisis into a political…

As a deaf Catholic, the Latin Mass gives me equal access to the liturgy

The Latin Mass has given me an incredible gift: A greater sense of belonging and inclusion than I have found in contemporary Mass parishes with a dominant hearing culture.

If the Latin Mass that I attend currently were to cease, I would be back to square one for determining which aspects of myself I am willing to sacrifice on Sunday.

Making sense of Pope Francis’ new restrictions on the Latin Mass

Overall, I agree with Francis’s motu proprio, not simply based on my own experience of the growing divisiveness over the Mass, but even more on his consultation with bishops around the world who have weighed in on the experiences of the People of God.

A while we were told that at a Jewish museum they were doing a tribute to Pope John Paul II. It was great. I looked around more and saw a painting. It was of people going into a small building and coming out ready to be killed. It gave me a idea. Make one like it for Right to Life. A pregnant woman going in and coming out not, with a trash can next to her. How you like?
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD… SO WHY ARE THERE SO MANY RELIGIONS? Why do you feel your religion is the right one, because your mother says so? There is no harm in exploring, that is the only way to find out if the grass is greener on the other side. Finally, a book has been written that has studied all religions including atheism views and have come up with a perfect layout for you to achieve the Kingdom of Heaven. God did not create any religion, that is why thy body is thy temple. Learn that no matter whatever religion you belong to or no religion at all, what you need to guide you through life to the Pearly Gates. Don’t be afraid, only ye who seek shall find. For those who are still hesitant and afraid, remember if you really believe in God, you can walk through the Valley of Death and fear no evil. You will never know if what you are doing is right unless you read this book. Either you will say I am on the right track to heaven, or you may need to change some and say, I once was blind but now I see. Only after reading it can you decide.

Hello Everyone, we are going through some tough times with this Coronavirus. Some of our loved ones have been the sacrificial lamb. But our faith will not be broken, for we have been through tribulations before, and together we will get through this terrible crisis as well. Amen BENDING ON MY KNEES When I am feeling down, and I have not a single friend around. When I search for a solution but there is not one to be found. When I find myself alone without anyone to comfort me? This is the time when I find myself bending on my knees. When I feel totally hopeless and don’t want to live anymore. When I look at others who have everything while I remain poor. When I feel like my final hope is gone. When I ask myself, to deserve this, what did I do wrong? Why have I been chosen to endure so much pain? When I feel like I am going totally insane. Whenever something goes wrong, I am the scapegoat that they blame. I feel just so worthless and so totally ashamed. When I feel that there isn’t a soul in the world who cares for me. That is when I find myself bending on my knees. I don’t know where the money will come from to pay the rent. Yet I know something will get here if only Heaven sent. Hello Everyone, we are going through some tough times with this Coronavirus. Some of our loved ones have been the sacrificial lamb. But our faith will not be broken, for we have been through tribulations before, and together we will get through this terrible crisis as well. Amen But you can always find the way if you have the will. Remember in order for one to get up they must first be down. If God can keep the world spinning, I know God can turn my life around. All that God asked of me is to hold on and not to give up. Like Job weather out those storms that are rough. Cause we know sooner or later there will be calm seas. Until then I am going to keep bending on my knees. (Check out the book below for some good Godly poetry)
