Msgr. Charles Pope
My father had an expression: “Charlie, people disappoint.” It was his way of saying that even people we think irreproachable, godly, and saintly can let us down, either with sin or simply by being unable to help us in key moments. Something of that comes through in the words of St. Paul from today’s first reading. Here were people that St...


29th Sunday of Ordinary Time — His life as a ransom for many...
John Bergsma
The First Reading for this Lord’s Day is personally very significant to me, because it caused me to be disturbed as a young man, and even contributed to a bout of depression I had. When I was in college, a group of Messianic (Christian) Jewish singers called “The Liberated Wailing Wall” came to my home church to put on a concert...

When was the Gospel of Luke written?
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
Why do scholars try so hard then to give a late date to the New Testament? Because they have another agenda. If Jesus really claimed to be God incarnate–as the gospels show–then it is difficult to avoid this conclusion about him. However, if these “mythological” elements can be shown to be later inventions, then they can be dismissed...

Bitter news with roots 1,000 years old: Russian Orthodox Church cuts ties with Bartholomew...
Terry Mattingly
Anyone who has studied the history of Orthodox Christianity knows the details of this story, as well as arguments about its signifigance. As the first Christian millennium was drawing to a close, something big happened among the East Slavic and Finnic tribes of Europe. As always, the change involved economics, culture, military might and...

What if the perfect happiness of Heaven is the End?
John Clark
When my son Athanasius was eight years old, his batting average for the baseball season was over .900. To be more specific for you baseball neophytes, he made a total of one out in an entire season of batting. And so, for a few years, he and I both dreamed of the major leagues in his future. On the way to baseball practice one day...

Sandro Magister
On the military terrain, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine continues at low intensity. But on the religious terrain, the clash has reached its peak. On October 15, the patriarchate of Moscow “and all Rus” broke off Eucharistic communion with the ecumenical patriarch of Constantinople, led respectively by patriarchs Kirill and Bartholomew...

John Allen
After an Iraqi cardinal said Tuesday that the U.S. government has “done nothing” to aid beleaguered Christians in his country, a Trump administration official on Wednesday insisted that “the U.S. is helping a tremendous amount, by any measure.” “We have mobilized a massive amount of resources,” said Mark Green, Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development...


Want to address priest sexual abuse? The Catholic Church needs to overhaul its seminaries...
Fr. Thomas Berg
Although clergy sexual abuse scandals aren’t new, the ones that have rocked the Catholic Church this summer revolved around a group seldom focused on before: seminarians. The sexual harassment and abuse of seminarians, and the response of seminary leaders, have been at the center of the case of former cardinal Theodore McCarrick...

Archbishop Charles Chaput
The Church is the United States is still strong compared to Catholic life in nearly every other “developed” country. We have good resources, many good young clergy and lay leaders, vigorous renewal movements, and plenty of thriving parishes. But we’re losing the young. That’s a huge challenge for the future.
