Why we get angry at other Catholics who don’t know what we know...
Simcha Fisher
Catholic social media is a strange place to dwell. A few weeks ago, about 70 percent of my feed was taken up with Catholics explaining that, no matter what the department stores say, Christmas is not over yet. It goes until Epiphany or until the Baptism of the Lord or until Candlemas—but it is not over yet! The remaining 30 percent of my friends were irritably complaining that we all already know Christmas is not over yet...


Working for the Kingdom: A homily for the 2nd Sunday of the Year...
Msgr. Charles Pope
The readings of “Ordinary Time” (Tempus per annum in Latin) focus on the call to discipleship and the living of the Christian Faith. The readings for today’s Mass are no exception, as they present us with a number of disciplines for disciples. These disciplines free us to serve Christ and His Kingdom joyfully, energetically...

Is it wrong to fall asleep during prayer and adoration?
Shaun McAfee
Years ago, I signed my name to a list of parishioners who would ensure our adoration chapel received a perpetual adoration by giving one hour a week. I was one of the last to sign up, so I might not have received the most convenient time of the lot: 3:30 a.m. on Tuesdays. It was especially hard because I went into work at 6:30 a...

How NOT to count the crowd at a March for Life...
Kevin Knight
How do you count — or miscount — the crowd at a pro-life march? Taking the Jan. 13 Celebrate Life March in Denver as an example, let us count the ways. First, how to count a stationary crowd. There's a science to this, but it's not rocket science. It's just a matter of multiplying area times density. Area estimation is the easy part thanks to drones...

More often than you might think, journalists find themselves covering a story we personally think is important, but which we suspect won’t be of great interest to a broad audience. The question in such a situation is, do we just forget about it? Or, do we find a way to draw an audience to the story, even if it may be a little artificial...

Rome conference planned on divisions in Church, papal infallibility...
Edward Pentin
One of the late Cardinal Carlo Caffarra’s last wishes — to have an international conference to examine ways to resolve the current crisis of division in the Church — will take place in Rome in early April, the Register has learned. Details have yet to be officially released, but the conference is expected to explore the limits of papal infallibility as well as seek ways to overcome the division in the Church...

Popes on planes aren’t supposed to be a setting from which to draw fodder for canon law essay exams, but as far back as Pope Benedict XVI, such flights have occasioned more than their fair share of papal words or actions carrying canonical implications but undertaken with little apparent advertence to canon law. Let’s start with some fact questions in regard to the mid-air marriage recently officiated by Pope Francis...
