This is the key to increasing vocations...
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
It seems to me that if we want to see an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life, we have to start praying more specifically about what we really want and about what we are willing to give. For example, can we please stop lumping all vocations together? Marriage is sliding down the hill towards the edge of the cliff...

Pope John Paul II on Mary’s witness to the Resurrection of her Son...
Tom Perna
Although the Sacred Scriptures never speak of the Blessed Virgin Mary interacting with Jesus Christ after his Crucifixion on Calvary, it is highly doubtful that He would have never appeared to her or speak to her again. He does give her to Saint John on the Cross, “Women, behold your son”, who in turn represents all Christians and all of humanity...


10 reasons you should believe in the Resurrection of Jesus...
Deacon Matthew Schneider
St Paul said that if Christ did not rise from the dead we are the greatest of fools. But if Jesus did rise from the dead everyone else could be considered the greatest of fools. Now Easter is over, I thought it appropriate to present 10 reasons why the resurrection happened. For instance: If the Apostles made it up, they would have arrived before the women.


Do you like the Ford Mustang? On its 50th birthday, thank the Catholic who helped God create it...
Frank Weathers
His name is Lee Iacocca. A scrappy, first generation, American Italian, kid who got started in the car business as an engineer (schooled at LeHigh University, and Princeton), he switched gears and became a car salesman to the fledgling dealer networks that had arisen to sate the automotive appetites of post-World War II America.

The five-fold argument for the Resurrection...
Joe Heschmeyer
The New Testament consists of first-century, seemingly first-hand accounts of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It also claims to be an eyewitness account and makes some mighty bold claims about what the authors saw and heard. Yet a first-century audience (that is...

The teaching of the Church is clear: Souls are actually in hell now, and will be for all eternity...
Tim Staples
While we did not broach the topic of "how many" will be saved; that is for another time, our focus here will be on the question of whether there are and whether there will be souls in hell for all eternity. Greater minds than mine, like the aforementioned Hans Urs von Balthasar, and Fr. Robert Barron...

Catholic conversions are down nationwide, but Washington saw a record high number this year. Here's why...
Msgr. Charles Pope
There was an informative and helpful article in the Washington Post this Easter Sunday that demonstrates certain keys to success in evangelization. The focus of the article is the happy fact that the Archdiocese of Washington welcomed a record number of converts this year at the Easter Vigil. But the article also documents important factors that helped that number.

One man's amazing journey toward the Catholic faith...
Kathy Schiffer
Richard Cole was not much of a believer: By his own admission, he didn’t pray, he didn’t worship. He was in recovery following years of alcohol abuse. Raised Methodist, he had fled the church of his youth to dabble in Zen, t’ai chi, New Age, witchcraft. But then for his 49th birthday...

While the Church is firm on same-sex marriage, many Catholics are rejecting its teaching...
Greg Erlandson
There is probably no more divisive topic in the Church right now than the subject of gay marriage. Catholics, particularly younger Catholics, increasingly mirror the rapid change in attitudes toward same-sex marriage that has typified both popular and legal opinion. The Church finds itself pinned between its assessments that homosexual acts are gravely disordered...
