Pope sends message to media on Feast of St. Francis de Sales: “Communicate the good news”


The Church doesn’t need your opinion, she needs your holiness...
Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble
We live in a world full of opinions. And the internet has amplified the number of opinions we hear each day. People who used to grouse about life to their best friend or next-door neighbors now have websites, blogs, and social media accounts through which they can announce their opinions on any given subject to the world. “I can be silent no more...

Pro-lifers care about the born, more than liberals know...
David Mills
The comment makes those of us involved in pro-life work roll our eyes or snort. It’s sometimes said with a furrowed brow and a shaking head, sometimes with a smug gleam of triumph. You’ve heard it too: Pro-lifers don’t care about children once they’re born. That’s quite wrong, but even if the charge were right, it would not matter...

My students were finding their seats, pulling notebooks out of bags, silencing their phones (praise God!). One of them, Michaela, had recently started a regular babysitting gig for a former student of mine and her young family – a young family that happens to include my godson, Dominic. “How’s my godson doing?” I asked Mic...

SNAP and Fittipaldi: Two missed opportunities for real reform on sex abuse...
John Allen
Two stories broke this week regarding the Church’s clerical sexual abuse scandals, one in Italy and the other in the States, and in different ways, each speaks to a missed opportunity. In Italy, a book came out titled Lussuria: Peccati, Scandali e Tradimenti di una Chiesa Fatta di Uomini (“Lust: Sins, Scandals and Betrayals of a Church Made of Men”) by journalist Emiliano Fittipaldi...

The only thing we can truly say about this God-forsaken world is that it is not God-forsaken...
Joseph Pearce
I am fond of telling the story of an American tourist who gets himself hopelessly lost somewhere in the wilds of the west of Ireland. In desperation, he stops to ask an Irishman the way. “If I were you,” the rustic sage replies, “I wouldn’t start from here.” We might not think such advice very helpful and no doubt our lost American tourist found it exasperating and infuriating in equal measure...

Marlon De La Torre
If you ever wondered what might be a good way of keeping our thoughts from becoming verbal assaults on another person, place or thing we might want to turn to St. Francis De Sales. In has masterful work 'Introduction the Devout Life' St. Francis teaches the importance of practicing virtue especially with our temptation to speak about anything...

A meditation on the story of Jonah...
Msgr. Charles Pope
To defy means to resist what one is told to do, openly and boldly. Defiance also indicates a lack of faith because it comes from the Latin “dis” (against) and “fidere” (believe). Hence Jonah is not just insubordinate; he is unbelieving and untrusting. His scoffing and defiance likely result from hatred or excessive nationalism...

Jenny Uebbing
I wanted to write something snarky. I wanted to dash off line after line of statistics and data supporting the appalling abuse committed against women and children in the name of “progress” and “equality.” I wanted to drop blistering one-liners about losing our bearings, rejecting our feminist roots and blowing past all the other pertinent issues surrounding women’s freedoms that don’t originate in the pelvic region...

Kathryn Jean Lopez
I was far from alone in being saddened by the death of Father Michael Scanlon, T.O.R., the longtime leader of the Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. Admittedly, this is one of those times when the sadness is a bit selfish. The holy man deserves rest and reward. But as we pray that he may see the face of God with haste...
