Pope returns to Rome, says choice of word ‘proof’ in comments on Chilean bishop ‘was not the best’


What attachments are and what they are not...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Are there ways we can distinguish attachments from ordinary and proper desires? What are the signs that we are too attached to someone or something? To address questions like these I turn to a great teacher of mine in matters spiritual, Fr. Thomas Dubay. Fr. Dubay died more than seven years ago but left a great legacy of teaching through his books...

Cardinal O’Malley's rebuke of Pope Francis on sex abuse stirs wide reaction...
Inés San Martín
It’s not every day that a close ally and adviser to a pope, not to mention a cardinal of the Catholic Church, distances himself from that pope. So when Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston said Saturday night it was “understandable” that Francis’s language in Chile about abuse victims accusing a bishop of a cover-up had caused “great pain...


How do you find out which territorial parish you live in?
Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
The 1983 Code of Canon Law starts out describing a diocese as a “portion of the people of God”. Dioceses are usually circumscribed by borders, indicating territory. You belong to your diocese because you dwell in the diocese in a relatively stable way. There are exceptions, as in the case of the Archdiocese for the Military...

“People with a specific disability are being targeted,” Patricia Heaton, the actress known for “Everybody Loves Raymond” and currently in her ninth season on the primetime family series, “The Middle,” said in an interview about Down syndrome and abortion. During the summer, Heaton found herself in the position of fact checker when a CBS News tweet declared...

Is it wrong to fall asleep during prayer and adoration?
Shaun McAfee
Years ago, I signed my name to a list of parishioners who would ensure our adoration chapel received a perpetual adoration by giving one hour a week. I was one of the last to sign up, so I might not have received the most convenient time of the lot: 3:30 a.m. on Tuesdays. It was especially hard because I went into work at 6:30 a...

In dangerous times like ours, where are the churchmen with chests?
Fr. George Rutler
To have been the proverbial fly on the wall during a conversation, one good time would have been during dinner in the White House on September 2, 1943 when Franklin Roosevelt was hosting Winston and Clementine Churchill with their daughter Mary and the newly appointed ambassador to the Soviet Union, Averill Harriman. The other dinner guest was Cardinal Spellman...

‘Forgiveness science’ founder can't prove it, but suspects a ‘Francis effect’...
John Allen
Scientific study of the world has been around for a while now, so it’s rare these days to meet the founder of an entirely new branch of science. That, however, is what you’ve got in full living color in the person of Robert Enright, a Catholic who teaches at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, and who pioneered what’s today known as “forgiveness science...

Why we get angry at other Catholics who don’t know what we know...
Simcha Fisher
Catholic social media is a strange place to dwell. A few weeks ago, about 70 percent of my feed was taken up with Catholics explaining that, no matter what the department stores say, Christmas is not over yet. It goes until Epiphany or until the Baptism of the Lord or until Candlemas—but it is not over yet! The remaining 30 percent of my friends were irritably complaining that we all already know Christmas is not over yet...

Rome conference planned on divisions in Church, papal infallibility...
Edward Pentin
One of the late Cardinal Carlo Caffarra’s last wishes — to have an international conference to examine ways to resolve the current crisis of division in the Church — will take place in Rome in early April, the Register has learned. Details have yet to be officially released, but the conference is expected to explore the limits of papal infallibility as well as seek ways to overcome the division in the Church...

As more details emerge, the mid-air marriage gets muddier...
Edward Peters
Popes on planes aren’t supposed to be a setting from which to draw fodder for canon law essay exams, but as far back as Pope Benedict XVI, such flights have occasioned more than their fair share of papal words or actions carrying canonical implications but undertaken with little apparent advertence to canon law. Let’s start with some fact questions in regard to the mid-air marriage recently officiated by Pope Francis...
