Recent Episodes

The Church is awash in clergy scandals, from the troubling writings of a head of a major Vatican dicastery to the depraved activities of well-known priests. What is a Catholic to do in the face of such corruption?

2024: The Path Forward for Catholics

Catholics have been debating how to react to the crisis in the Church for some time now: Should we ignore Rome and focus on our family/parish/community? Or should we actively resist the scandals and corruptions coming from the Vatican?

2023: The Year Pope Francis Went Too Far?
