For the "new CDW", a new kind of prefect

Love: Reuniting the objective and subjective...
R. Jared Staudt
The modern world has fallen into a dualism of body and soul in many ways. Descartes, a founding father of modern philosophy described the soul as a "ghost in a machine." It is only too easy to focus on the body in an animalistic fashion, focused on pleasure and gratification. The opposite extreme is to fall into emotionalism or even a spiritualism that sees no compelling connection to the body...


A couple of notes about the new Prefect of Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
Pope Francis has appointed Robert Card. Sarah, 69, as the new Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments. Hitherto, Card. Sarah, from Guinea, has been the head of the Pontifical Council "Cor Unum". Not long ago, I posted here about Card. Sarah's remarks concerning the poor...


Today is the Feast of St. Chrysogonus...
Dominicana
Today is the feast day of St. Chrysogonus. You may think you know nothing about him, but if you go to Mass regularly, chances are you've at least heard his name: "With Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian, and all the saints." Thus runs one part of the Roman Canon...

Satan at his most subtle: A reflection on the temptations and traps of the pious...
Msgr. Charles Pope
What is temptation? Temptation is the work of Satan to drag you to hell. And Satan can read you like a book and play you like piano. Do not exaggerate his power but do not underestimate it either. Some of his subtlest work is done in the area of religious observance since there, he can...

Homily for the Feast of Christ the King...
Pope Francis
Today's liturgy invites us to fix our gaze on Christ, the King of the Universe. The beautiful prayer of the Preface reminds us that his kingdom is "a kingdom of truth and life, a kingdom of holiness and grace, a kingdom of justice, love and peace". The readings we have listened to show us how Jesus established his kingdom; how he brings it about in history; and what he now asks of us...

How altar boys can serve with greater reverence and understanding...
Garrett Johnson
Today’s video provides both an excellent explanation of some of the ideas behind the altar server together with practical tips on how to serve with reverence and understanding. As a reflection, I would like to propose the idea that the liturgy, and above all the Mass, is indeed a School of Christian Living. There, in addition to receiving the sacraments...

Four popes, the Synod, and the future: An interview with Vatican expert Andrea Gagliarducci...
John Paul Shimek
Andrea Gagliarducci is one of Rome’s leading “Vaticanistas.” His blog “Monday Vatican” and countless columns and articles for the Catholic News Agency, the National Catholic Register, Inside the Vatican, and the Italian journals Il Tempo and La Sicilia appear on Catholic “Must Read” lists around the globe. But, more than a chronicler of Church affairs...

At the European Parliament in Strasbourg, Franciscan Polity 101...
Rocco Palmo
Tomorrow, the first American Pope heads to the heart of Europe as Francis addresses the Continent's 751-member Parliament at Strasbourg. Already, the last 20 months have revealed most of the key points the talk is likely to hit – a protest of the "idolatry of money" to which people are sacrificed and a call to reject the "throwaway culture" it's birthed; special pleas for the care of the young suffering under brutally high unemployment rates...

This week's featured guest in "How I Pray": Jimmy Akin...
Thomas McDonald
Every Monday in How I Pray, I ask various Catholics about their prayer routines, their prayer lives, and their experience of prayer. This week I'm joined by the great apologist Jimmy Akin, whose clear and irenic explanations of Catholic teaching are always a welcome oasis in the often-fractious world of online Catholicism. Who are you...

Mark Shea
Truly Reformed Protestantism suits a particular personality type: the sort of person who likes diagrams, neat hand-writing, little lists of facts, mathematical formulae, and a certain kind of precision. In its own limited sphere,...


The time for big curial changes may finally be here...
Andrea Gagliarducci
Bishop Marcello Semeraro, coordinator of the Council of Cardinals, should be the man who will communicate today to the chiefs of Vatican dicasteries the decisions the Council has made for Curia reform. At the presence of Pope Francis, following a schedule that has much of definitive and little to discuss, the chief of dicasteries have been convoked at the eve of the sixth meeting of the Council...

“Long live Christ the King!”...
Fr. Victor Feltes
We tend to think of Mexico as one of the most Catholic countries around, but for a time in 1920's it was illegal to celebrate the Mass there. That did not stop priests like Blessed Miguel Pro, S.J. from ministering to people clandestinely. After many close calls, Fr. Pro was captured by the police and...


Pope Francis seems poised for an Era of Good Feelings with secularism...
John Allen
Both in secular Europe and in the Vatican, it's a measure of how much things have changed that a visit by a pope next Tuesday to the European Parliament and to the Council of Europe seems to be generating almost zero controversy. Pope Francis will make a day trip to Strasbourg Tuesday, departing early in the morning and returning to Rome in the late afternoon...
