• Squaring the circle

    In years gone by, it was hardly unusual for periodic assemblies of the world Synod of Bishops to pass largely unnoticed by the media and just about everybody else. Not this time.

  • Pope Francis’ popularity

  • Militarization will not resolve underlying problems in El Salvador

    SAN SALVADOR — Violence has escalated over the past few weeks in El Salvador. Gang hitmen — sicarios —recently killed two soldiers who were guarding a bus station that is part of the recently opened Metropolitan System of Transport of Grand San Salvador (SITRAMSS).

  • ‘God’s will is not a checklist’

    In the past year, my family has driven to my sister-in-law’s house in Fayetteville, Arkansas, multiple times. Once, we drove out through the plains on I-40 before heading north in the Ozarks, but usually we stop to see my mother and father-in-law in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on the way.
