• Secularist reactions to Hobby Lobby

    Considered either as an ideology or as a program of action, secularism is deeply coercive. Reactions to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act’s contraceptive mandate make that abundantly clear.

  • Birmingham, Vietnam and Murrieta

    Sometimes a picture says it all.

  • Influx of immigrant children: Reminiscent of ‘orphan trains’

    The humanitarian crisis on our southern border — where more than 60,000 children have crossed into the U.S. since October — has parallels to the plight of largely Catholic children who were shipped across America between 1854 and 1929 on so-called “orphan trains.”

  • Images of God

    Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we’ve learned until well after the fact. A few years ago while studying pastoral theology at Loyola Marymount University, a classroom exercise created a shift in my thinking.

  • Christian Hollywood: Mobilizing via a tsunami of God’s Spirit

    “Keep surfing the Wave... the Tsunami is the Spirit at work!” bid Anthony Palmer from his ministry’s home in Wiltshire, England, last week via e-mail before he left for Rome to meet again with Pope Francis.

  • The most important thing

    When I was little, I would play “house” all the time. I’d have my dolls and my imagination to set the scene. I would carry my babies from room to room, rocking them, “feeding” them, and taking them for walks in the stroller.

  • Crisis in the news business

    It was a week that began with the management of The New York Times forcing out the paper’s executive editor after just three years.

  • Sharing forgiveness, redemption around a cold metal table

    Working with the incarcerated demonstrates that food is a huge, essential, gigantic factor in their lives because most of the time their taste buds are being treated with either institutional or canteen food. 

  • Our spontaneous pope

    Spontaneity that reflects good-heartedness is a highly attractive trait, but the spontaneity of self-indulgence is reckless and often cruel. Spontaneity of either kind can cause confusion and dismay.

  • Simple strategies for successful learning

    When I speak or write about respecting individual learning needs, I am often met with skeptical remarks about how this could possibly work in a classroom or even in a homeschool setting.
