Pope Francis at the crossroads of history...
Andrea Gagliarducci
There is an anecdote that relates better than any other how Pope Francis tackles issues.

5 Protestants who surprisingly defended Mary's perpetual virginity...
Brantly Millegan
It is a dogma of the Catholic faith that the Blessed Virgin Mary was not only a virgin when she conceived and bore Jesus but that she remained a virgin ever after. Most Protestant Christians today deny this—but do they know that many of their early leaders believed it? Here are 5 examples of major Protestant leaders who rejected huge swaths of Catholic dogma...

There were three demons who told Satan about their plan to destroy a certain man.

With Russian Church absent, new Orthodox leaders emerge...
Victor Gaetan
At the Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church gathered in Kolymbari, Crete, family metaphors are common. Sister churches. Brother bishops.

Pope Francis shows Armenian Church that unity with Rome “lifts up the lowly”...
John Allen
In theory, at least, size doesn’t matter in Christianity. One’s spiritual dignity is not supposed to correlate with numbers of followers, infrastructure, or bank accounts; as Pope Benedict XVI once put it, “statistics are not our god.” Rarely, however, will you see a clearer demonstration of that principle than what’s unfolded in Armenia during Pope Francis’s June 24-26 trip to this small nation in the South Caucasus region...


As the world grows more crazy and cruel, shun the mob and follow Jesus Christ...
Rebecca Hamilton
Peoples is crazy. And they are getting crazier. They are also getting meaner. And more deadly. California’s euthanasia law locked on recently, allowing medical murder. The support for this law comes from claims that killing people is actually a kindness to them, and those who opposed this killing lack compassion. New York City’s Commission on Human Rights recently released a “guidance” for employers and landlords...


The Pope's prayer in Armenia: “May our communion be complete”...
Rocco Palmo
Amid what's arguably been the most under-covered PopeTrip of recent times – all the more given the usual hysteria surrounding this pontificate – Francis' weekend trek to Armenia hasn't lacked for striking moments and, indeed, a pocket of controversy in the Pope's unscripted use of the charged word "genocide" in his remarks to the country's leadership: a move which...

During this Fortnight for Freedom, the US Bishops have asked us to “Hold firm, stand fast, and insist upon what belongs to you by right as Catholics. — Our First, Most Cherished Liberty.” Furthermore, Archbishop Lori has pointed out that we must fight for freedom in a spirit of joy, signaling out the Little Sister of the Poor saying...

You are called to be a witness in a new age of martyrdom...
R. Jared Staudt
When we think of the age of the martyrs, the great witness against the idol worship of the Roman Empire comes to mind. The Romans did not force any kind of religious uniformity on its conquered territories, save that the Roman Emperor himself could be included in a wide pantheon of gods. In a way, the Romans were forcing relativism and tolerance on their citizens: everyone can worship whatever god they prefer...

Pin the tale on the Christian? An ancient blame game is still in use...
John Clark
It would be a terrible understatement to say that Christians received a lion’s share of the blame for Roman society’s ills. Much more than that, Christianity essentially received all the blame; indeed, that was an institutional part of the societal framework. Tertullian noted that Christians were being blamed not only for every class of crime (including...
