Today’s Holy Innocents

When one looks at the liturgical calendar, one sees a message the Church is attempting to instill within us.  Right after we erupt with jubilation over the birth of Christ, we meditate over the first martyr, St. Stephen.  He reminds us that this joy has a price, and that price is higher than we could […]

Also, […]

We are days away from a national election that has stirred in me an unprecedented level of both […]

Why the Prophetic Voice of Pope Paul VI Still Matters

by

Those of us who live in prosperous countries may not realize the full impact of the contraceptive ideology around the world. You know the ideology I mean: everyone old enough to give meaningful consent is entitled to unlimited sex without a live baby showing up.

Pro-Choice Puritans

So a radical feminist and two childless women walk into a courtroom. How do you expect them to rule on abortion or contraception? Their lives as they know them, depend on both.

Why Everyone Should Oppose Surrogacy

by

I am an outspoken critic of gestational surrogacy, in which the gestational mother carries a child to term for another person or couple. I have noticed that many people do not understand the stakes in this issue.

Latest Pope Francis Controversy and Why Non-Catholics Should Care

by

Non-Catholics may be wondering why Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation, Amoris Laetitia or The Joy of Love, has Catholics in an uproar. Has the Pope changed Catholic doctrine? Has he left the doctrine officially intact, but changed pastoral practice so much that the doctrine is annulled? Now that I have taken the weekend to read it, […]

Does God Hear the Theological Silence About Racism in Abortion?
