David Daleiden fined $195,000 in court battle over Planned Parenthood videos...

David Daleiden is a courageous pro life campaigner. For three years he ran an undercover operation to expose Planned Parenthood’s sickening business of selling body parts from aborted babies to research labs. He set up the Center for Medical Progress as a front to infiltrate the Planned Parenthood abortion regime. Posing as a potential buyer...

The logic of the Resurrection...

The meaning of human existence was definitively determined and confirmed about 2,000 years ago in a little cave just outside Jerusalem when a dead man suddenly came alive again. Nobody saw the event itself – it was secret. Only its effects were perceived, just as this same man’s public miracles had been... in the midst of confusion...

Cardinal Cupich’s rationale for not taking canonical action against prominent pro-abortion Catholic politicos is as unconvincing as ever...

No one thought that Chicago’s Blase Cdl. Cupich would follow Springfield’s Bp. Thomas Paprocki’s example in calling upon Catholic state legislators, who had supported Illinois’ express attack on the basic rights of pre-born babies, to refrain from holy Communion until they repented of their evil deed (Canon 916), further directing that his ministers withhold holy Communion from two specific legislators based on their protracted and public support of such measures (Canon 915)...

Bishop-elect in Chile resigns after controversial statements on sex abuse crisis...

Pope Francis has accepted the resignation of an auxiliary bishop-elect in Santiago, Chile, after he made controversial comments on the sexual abuse crisis, women in the Church, and the Jewish community. “The Holy Father has accepted the resignation of Father Carlos Eugenio Irarrázaval Errázuriz as auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Santiago...

Who’s responsible for the USCCB’s Twitter account?

Over the course of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops’ spring general assembly, questions arose online: what was going on with the suddenly-chatty USCCB Twitter account? Did they give an intern, or perhaps a particularly hip young priest or enthusiastic new convert the password? Had the account been hacked? As it turns out...

French politicians divided over how to rebuild Notre Dame...

It has been two months since a fire at the start of Holy Week destroyed the roof of the famed Notre Dame Cathedral. The large gothic structure now sits, enveloped in scaffolding, as a part of the low-rise Parisian skyline. The 300-foot spire that once appeared to stretch out to heaven is missing. These are constant reminders of that April 15 blaze and the hard work that lies ahead...

‘Sin City South’ offers a lesson in religion as the kudzu of the cosmos...

Although horticulturists insist that the black legend of kudzu, an ornamental Asian plant popularly known as the “vine that ate the south,” is largely undeserved, it’s nonetheless infamous below the Mason-Dixon line. Introduced in the late 19th century to prevent soil erosion, it became known for its uncontrollable expansion - no matter how hard you tried to kill it...

The power of Francis Poulenc’s “Dialogues of the Carmelites”...

The Metropolitan Opera’s series of High Definition (HD) broadcasts, transmitting opera performances live into movie theaters around the world, has been a bright spot on the cultural landscape for some time. Attending an HD broadcast is the next best thing to being at the opera house, and sometimes it can be even better. That was my distinct impression when I attended this season’s revival of Francis Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites...

If this man asks for a penny, don’t give it to him. It’s a pyramid scheme.....

This is the last video showing the construction of the New World Record Penny Pyramid, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. This beats the previous record, which used 100 people and was built in Lithuania.

Three slogans that show the Church and science agree about abortion...

Whenever pro-life policies advance, such as the fetal “heartbeat” bill in Georgia, the protection of children conceived by rape in Alabama, and the National Institute of Health’s (NIH) defunding of fetal tissue in research, the same old pro-choice slogans pop up again in the media: “My Body, My Choice!” “Parasites Don’t Have Rights...
