    Post by Sr. Clare Hunter, 3/13/2014

  • Holiness is more than Being
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope, 10/15/2013

    “We live in a time that has tended to reduce holiness to merely being nice and agreeable. In this manner of thinking holiness tends to be variously thought of as: getting along well with everyone, being kind, agreeable, helpful, likable, generous, pleasant, mild mannered, amiable, good humored, middle of the road, even tempered, placid, benevolent, friendly, forbearing, tolerant, thoughtful, and the like. It can all be summed up by saying that "so-and-so" is "basically a nice person." And thus the goal seems more to be nice than holy. ... ”

  • But Worldly Sorrow Brings Death
    What is the Difference Between Healthy and Unhealthy Guilt? - Post by Msgr. Charles Pope, 9/11/2013

    “On of the trickier terrains to navigate in the moral world is the experience of guilt. Guilt is understood here as a kind of sorrow for sin. On the one hand there is an appropriate sorrow for sin we ought to experience. Yet there are also types of guilt that can set up, either from our flesh or from the devil which are self destructive and inauthentic. Some forms of morbid or harmful guilt can cause great harm and actually increase the frequency of sin due to the way they render a person discouraged and self disparaging rather, rather than chastened but confident of mercy, healing and help. It may be of some value to make some distinctions so that we can discern what sort of guilt is healthy, and what is not. ... ”

  • Fasting with the Eyes and Ears
    Post by Fr. Paul Scalia, 9/11/2013

    “In Lumen Fidei the Pope examines the virtue of faith through the familiar images of seeing and hearing (cf. LF, 29-31). Scripture often uses these two human senses to describe the life of faith. Seeing the mighty works of God leads to faith: “They saw and believed” (cf. Jn 2:23; 20:8). At the same time, belief leads to and serves as a kind of sight: “If you believe, you will see the glory of God” (Jn 11:40). ... ”

  • Is the Syria of today the Assyria of the Bible?
    Post by Msgr. Charles Pope, 9/10/2013

    “Given all the talk of Syria in the news lately, I was asked if Syria is the same “Assyria” that is mentioned in the Bible. The answer is no from a political perspective. The modern state of Syria was formed after World War I and became independent after World War II. ... ”

  • Sober and Serious on Syria
    A Pastoral Teaching rooted in the Just War Teaching - Post by Msgr. Charles Pope, 9/8/2013

    “One of the more common critiques that many Catholics make of their clergy is that they seldom hear from their pastors on moral topics in the news and our culture such as fornication, divorce, abortion, religious liberty, homosexuality, redefining marriage and so forth.
