The Death of Death?

Many of our tech elites are spending vast amounts of money to defeat death and achieve physical immortality.

Humble Weapons for Humble Warriors

Relics and sacramentals—bone, skin, muscle, clothing, salt, water, ash—are all things that ground us, the humblest of spiritual weapons.

No Ordinary Woman

Mary is not the poster child for either the prosperity gospel or liberation theology; she is the one who declares that God “has put down the mighty from their thrones, and exalted those of low degree.”

Summoning Our Inner St. Paul

When everyone is going along to get along, no one really gets along. Cowardice is the beginning of the end for all things good.

We Become the Symbol

Wedding “unity” ceremonies, while well-intentioned, often replace sustenance with ritual and sentimentality.

Thirsting for Souls

Unlike Dennis Prager’s “silo approach” to sin, the Christian view of sin includes a wholesome, integrated view of the human person.

Just Plain Stupid

The technological marvels of our era have promoted mass vanity, the delusion that we are the masters of our destiny: a perfect storm for mass stupidity.

Big Medicine’s Fight Against Nature

Conversion Is Not a Four-Letter Word

Tomorrow, July 30th, is the 100th anniversary of Chesterton’s reception into the Catholic Faith. Let us look to him for a deeper understanding of the importance of calling non-Catholics to conversion to the Church.

Cookie-cutter philosophers will always cleverly label the wisdom of the ages as yesteryear’s worn-out fashion—as archaic ideas whose time has come and gone. They will attempt to free us from the very thing that gives us freedom. 

Beyond Bumper-Sticker Theology

The Faith dies a little with each desperate reductionism—with each attempt to convince rationalists that reason can comfortably be abandoned in favor of faith because, well, shut up!

Brotherly Harshness in a World of Tribal Empathy
