• The Church of Christ without Christ?

    With the collapse of the mainline Protestant churches in America, Joseph Bottum argues, what has taken their place is something he calls — borrowing from author Flannery O’Connor — the Church of Christ Without Christ.

     

     

  • Anticipating the Supreme Court’s ruling on marriage

    The likelihood that the Supreme Court next June will announce its discovery of a constitutional right to same-sex marriage raises an obvious question for the Catholic Church: What do we do now?

     

     

  • God is calling each person and every nation to repent

    “The kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the Gospel.”

  • Trying to take politics seriously

    I try to take American politics seriously, I really do. Serious issues are at stake, after all. But sometimes, entirely too often in fact, the realities of American political discourse make taking it seriously awfully hard. Considering the seriousness of what’s at stake, this may be what hearing Beethoven’s Ninth performed on the harmonica would be like.

  • Ideals and norms

    Human beings always fall short of ideals. So, when it’s a question of marriage, why not just welcome back people who’ve married without annulments after their first marriages failed and offer Communion to those who want it?

  • Heroes

    Let’s face it, 2014 was a rotten year for heroes and hero worship.

  • A Christmas gift for suffering South Sudan

    The world’s newest nation is in big trouble. After more than 20 years of civil war between the southern and northern areas of Sudan, the southern part of that country became the independent nation of the Republic of South Sudan on July 9, 2011.

  • Child’s play

    There is a somewhat defendable historical legend that when Lord Cornwallis ordered the striking of the English colors and the surrender of his army to the rabble of the American Continental Army on Oct. 19, 1781, he ordered the British Army band to play a song called “The World Turned Upside Down.” 

  • A life devoted to service and prayer

    During 2015, the Year of Consecrated Life, the Bishops of California join with Pope Francis and the worldwide Catholic Church in honoring the women and men who fulfill their baptismal vocation by formally consecrating their lives to service, prayer and care for others.

Remains of Rebellion

Father Ed Benioff

Every generation in its turn is proud of its accomplishments — proud even to the point of arrogance. Usually we’re a lot more impressed than we ought to be. As we get older, if we are wise like King Solomon, we come to realize that “Nothing is new under the sun!”
