...what reward will you have?
By Joseph Michael Di Marius
There seems to be a disturbing trend plaguing our society that instills in me a fear far greater than any fear that I might derive from the thought of terrorists or active shooters or any other kind of boogeymen that the talking heads on TV might try to force feed our already-weary psyches.
Safeguarding our Home Parishes
By Karl Erickson
Sunday morning found us sitting in the back gathering area at our church, as we had arrived a little late that particular morning. Fifteen minutes, or so, into Mass a young and disheveled man entered. He was muscular with his shirt wrapped around at his waist. Something like a black bandanna was tied about his head.
Did the Risen Christ Appear to his Mother?
By Joby Provido
The Resurrection was not witnessed by anyone. Jesus did not gloat at his detractors by showing the glory of his Resurrection with blinding rays of light. Instead, as silent as he was born from a womb in the obscure town of Bethlehem, so was he “born” silently from a tomb as to humbly not make a big deal out of it.

Saturday — the day between — the nothing day — the no thing day, no trials or scourging, no crying out or dying to even talk about it seems useless because that was yesterday, and today is just today, taking us to tomorrow.
Reflections on Holy Saturday
By Carol Ann Chybowski
Today is Holy Saturday, a day of silence a day of waiting, a day of trusting. This is the day we remember how Christ trusted in the promise of God, His Father, following His will into death on the Cross, then into the grave
Seven Sacred Words
By Bernice G. Dumitru
“Behold the Wood of the Cross on which hung the Salvation of the world, O come let us adore.” The priest sings as we gaze at the crucified one on Good Friday.
What Happens in an Abortion--a Clinical Worker Speaks
By Rose Cuervo
Last week, I was invited to a talk, sponsored by a Rutgers Medical School student group Vita et Veritas, on conscience rights. Their existence, like other pro-life student groups such as other big universities, is always a marvel to me. How I wished I had that faith and formation when I was younger.
The Vatican, Communist China, and Trump: Making A Deal With The Devil
By Rex Teodosio
With the upcoming visit of communist China’s premiere, Xi Jinping, to meet with President Donald Trump in Florida on April 6 - 7, several important issues are surfacing again.
Politics, Principalities and Powers
By Greg Schlueter
I voted Trump. I do not wave a flag for Trump. Trump is flawed. As are we. Trump has to deal with very imperfect circumstances. As do we. We recognize and accept that perfection is the realm of sainthood; politics, the realm of the greatest good possible. We are not on team conservative. We're not on team liberal. We're on team humanity.
Is Healthcare of Universal Right?
By Rob Agnelli
Last May, Pope Francis addressed 9,000 members of Doctors with Africa, a group that works to bring quality healthcare to African populations. During his remarks, the Holy Father said that healthcare is “not a consumer good, but rather a universal right, and therefore access to healthcare services cannot be a privilege.”
Somebody else's babies
By Denise Deverts
An Iowa congressman recently made headlines when he posted the following "tweet": "We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies."
Following in Their Footsteps—Sitting in Their Wheelchair
By Elizabeth Thomas
We really don’t know how anyone feels---until—we experience their trials and pain. Some wisdom can only come with ‘age and sickness.’
Consequences of Tepid Christianity: The Boston Marathon Bomber's Widow
By Dr. Lin Weeks Wilder
I saw Peter Berg’s recently released film, Patriots Day over a month ago. Of the many heroes portrayed in this movie, there is just one person who has taken up residence in my memory. She is a minor character, the woman now known as the “Boston Marathon Bombers widow.” Her presence in the film is shadowy, flashes of her presence, always in the background. Intentionally so.
New war and just war
By Josef Bordat
After the collapse of the bipolar world order (1989/91), many military conflicts broke out in the destabilized and deeply changing world, mostly with an ethnical or islamist background. Due to this fact the focus within the concept of war has changed from the aggression of sovereign states to military violence,
The Three Pillars Of Lent
By Kathy Lamb
Most practicing Catholics know what is expected and required of us during the Season of Lent. We talk about giving something up for Lent. We want to make Lent special. Most Catholics want Lent to be a spiritual experience, a truly life changing experience.
