Pope announces June 29 consistory to create 14 new cardinals


On Pentecost, Francis revs up the Red Machine, taps 14 new cardinals...
Rocco Palmo
Marking another push to the church's “peripheries” – and even the Vatican’s – at the noontime Regina Caeli on this Pentecost Sunday, the Pope revealed his slate of 14 Cardinals-designate to be elevated at a Consistory on 29 June, the feast of Saints Peter and Paul. Francis' fifth intake into the College of his five-year pontificate...


Nazissism: The totalitarianism of the self...
Joseph Pearce
More than a century ago, in 1911 to be precise, Holbrook Jackson published a book entitled 'Platitudes in the Making,' a volume of aphorisms expressive of Jackson’s radical relativism. “Truth,” Jackson proclaimed platitudinously, “is one’s own conception of things.” “The Big Blunder,” Chesterton responded upon reading it...


Pentecost: Christianity is more than getting out of Hell...
Jason Craig
Christianity is more than a canceling of a sin-debt. The central piece of our faith is not just the communication of our cleansing, but the Incarnation of God Himself. But even that doesn’t say enough – it’s not the whole story. Because it is not just that the divine intermingled with man, like a visitor, but that through Christ man becomes divine...

How Our Lord’s mother holds the key to living Pentecost like a true apostle...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
The lilies had long died as the daily Gospel readings were preparing us for the arrival of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. On Monday before Ascension, we were still singing “At the Lamb’s High Feast” and various “Alleluia” hymns at the 7 a.m. Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. The Communion hymn seemed to help transport me to Divine Mercy Sunday...

A Catholic Anglophile on the royal wedding...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
I guess I can take the label of Catholic Anglophile. I moved to England in 1979 to study theology, became an Anglican priest, then converted to the Catholic faith. What do I think of today’s royal wedding? Well, part of me can’t help noticing that red-haired prince Harry married a divorced woman in St George’s Chapel, Windsor where King Henry VIII–another red haired royal with errm...

Oeconomicae et Pecuniariae Quaestiones: Considerations for an Ethical Discernment Regarding Some Aspects of the Present Economic-Financial System...
Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith
Economic and financial issues draw our attention today as never before because of the growing influence of financial markets on the material well-being of most of humankind. What is needed, on the one hand, is an appropriate regulation of the dynamics of the markets and, on the other hand, a clear ethical foundation that assures a well-being realized through the quality of human relationships rather than merely through economic mechanisms that by themselves cannot attain it...

The 7 best pro-life TV commercials of all time...
John Clark
Later this month, the citizens of Ireland will vote on the most important legislation in their nation’s history. The vote will decide whether preborn life will continue to have any rights under law. For a nation long-regarded as the world champion of the protection of unborn human beings in law, it is tragic that Ireland is even considering the repeal of the right-to-life amendment...


The Chilean Crisis points to greater accountability for bishops...
Matthew Bunson
The announcement from the Vatican on Friday that all of the members of the episcopal conference of Chile — 31 active bishops and three retired — had offered to resign over their handling of clergy sexual abuse is a watershed moment in the history of the handling of sex abuse in the Church. The dramatic step by the Chilean bishops followed less than 24 hours after the end of three days of meetings between the shepherds of Chile with Pope Francis in the Vatican...

After the landmark resignation of 34 Chilean bishops, what’s next?
Edward Pentin
The decision of Chile’s 34 bishops to submit their resignations was inevitable after Pope Francis’ 10-page letter highly critical of the Church leadership in Chile was leaked this morning. Francis issued a devastating critique of the Church’s handling of abuse cases. Not only did the letter include the notorious case of serial abuser Father Fernando Karadima...


The Pope’s next steps on sexual abuse in Chile...
J.D. Flynn
After meeting with him for three days, and reading his reflections on the problem of clerical sexual abuse in their country, 34 Chilean bishops submitted their resignation to Pope Francis Friday. The pope is unlikely to accept all of their resignations. He is likely to accept resignations from those who are at the center of Chile’s sexual abuse scandal...

Here are my 17 favorite Marian hymns. What are yours?
Tom Hoopes
May is the most beautiful month, so of course it is dedicated to Mary. But what are the most beautiful Marian hymns? I asked that question on Facebook, and heard from friends far and wide. I loved many of their suggestions — some of which introduced me to hymns I had never heard before. Others were hymns that may have once been favorites but which I have now sung maybe 35 or 50 times too many...

Let’s talk about bad singing in church...
Jimmy Akin
Have you ever been in church and had someone sitting near you belting out hymns off-key or off-pitch? It happened to me this Sunday. A woman in the pew behind mine was singing enthusiastically, blasting my right ear with notes out of sync with the cantor and the musician. This is a familiar situation in churches. It’s even more familiar in denominations that don’t have instrumental music—like the one my parents grew up in—to keep the congregation in tune...


Will Jacob Rees-Mogg become the next Catholic prime minister of the United Kingdom?
K.V. Turley
To most of Britain’s Catholic population, Jacob Rees-Mogg is, to say the least, a curious figure. Unlike many Catholic Parliamentarians, not only does Rees-Mogg say he is a Catholic but he votes in Parliament the way a Catholic should on certain—non-negotiable—issues. Furthermore, he is quite happy to tell the world this...
