After decades of cultural and political losses, what is the point of the modern Conservative Movement? Should Catholics still embrace this failed movement?

Hallow, the popular Catholic prayer app, recently ran into controversy when it hired rabidly pro-abortion actor Liam Neeson. Yet this was just a symptom of its problematic monetization and celebritization of prayer.

The election of libertarian candidate Javier Milei as president of Argentina raises the question among Catholics: Can a Catholic support a libertarian? Or is libertarianism contrary to Catholicism, particularly Catholic social teaching?

The institution of marriage is under attack; in fact, in many ways it seems to be on its last legs. How have Catholic leaders failed in defending marriage, and how can Catholics rebuild our respect for this sacred institution?

War in the Holy Land

The recent attack on Israel by Hamas has led many prominent voices in government and media to call for a substantial response, including an escalation of the conflict to include America and Iran. How should Catholics judge this conflict and America's role in it?

What Is a Catholic’s Duty to the Pope?

The current papacy has many Catholics wondering what level of obedience and submission is due to the pope's various actions and statements, such as exhortations on climate change and synods contemplating radical changes to the Faith.
