• From Hell to Hail Mary: A Cop’s Story

    Retired LAPD detective Frank DiPaola never thought he’d be a guy who could connect with kids — they just weren’t his “thing.” He never imagined his life revolving around saving kids from delinquency and crime and leading them to a life of hope and values.

  • Loaded: Money and the spirituality of enough

    Some people are attached to being rich. For a long time, I was attached to being poor.

  • Hope for America in Going Local: De-nationalizing politics could end the current spectacle

    One of the clearest writers on politics and civil society today is Yuval Levin, a leading conservative thinker at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and author of the new book, The Fractured Republic: Renewing America’s Social Contract in the Age of Individualism.

  • The Sacred Beetle: Jean-Henri Fabré’s ‘Book of Insects’

    Jean-Henri Fabre’s “Book of Insects” is a 1921 classic, with beautiful, tissue-paper-protected color plates by E.J. Detmold.

  • A crash course in Miracles 101

    What do a grilled cheese sandwich and the tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe have in common?

  • A book report 100 years late

  • The write stuff

    Writers writing about writing can be a dubious endeavor. Catholic writers writing about the “soul” of the Catholic writer is even more dangerous. So it is with a certain amount of trepidation that I sally forth and throw my rosary beads into the fray.

  • ‘The Shepherd Who Didn’t Run’: An interview with the author

    María Ruiz Scaperlanda remembers first hearing about Oklahoma’s missionary martyr priest from her then school-aged children.

  • Taking Religion and Politics Seriously

    Religion comes up a lot in politics, and yet, not at all. Not substantively. That’s the argument author Stephen Mansfield makes in Ask the Question: Why We Must Demand Religious Clarity from Our Presidential Candidates.

  • Farewell, my lovely: Noir novelist Raymond Chandler

    Raymond Chandler (1888-1959) created the character of hard-boiled L.A. private eye Philip Marlowe. His novels — among them “The Big Sleep” (1939), “Farewell, My Lovely” (1940) and “The Lady in the Lake” (1943) — are widely considered masterpieces of noir crime fiction.

Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Decision in United States v. Texas

Archbishop José H. Gomez

Our nation’s ongoing failure to address the immigration crisis is a humanitarian tragedy. For more than a decade, state and local governments, Congress, the President, the courts — and now the highest court in the land — all have failed in their responsibilities to address this issue.
