Diocese of Rochester confirms it requested Fulton Sheen beatification delay


The U.S. bishops must clear up this Communion confusion...
Msgr. Charles Pope
Judge Sara Smolenski, Chief Judge of the 63rd District Court in Kent County, Michigan, was recently advised by her pastor, Father Scott Nolan, that she should not receive Holy Communion because she claimed to enter into a “marriage” with a woman. He did this privately, but she chose to make the matter public. You can read the full story here...


The painful re-definition of heroism...
John Clark
We live in an age of lesser — lesser goods, lesser men, and a widespread acceptance of lesser evils among the great evils of the age. To make matters worse, we’ve become much too accepting of that fact. Regarding their personal vices as harmless irrelevancies compared to what we think are favorable political agendas, we neither require nor expect chastity or charity from our leaders...


When I was a kid, the Christians I knew liked rules too much...
David Mills
“Don’t do this. Don’t do that. And never never ever do that.” That’s what I heard. The Christians I first knew, knew well enough to listen to, emphasized the restrictions. The positive commands, like “Love your neighbor as yourself,” they didn’t talk about so much. Even people who clearly loved their neighbors as themselves tended to stress The Rules...

Terry Mattingly
And now for something completely different. Long, long ago, in my previous life as a weekly music columnist in Champaign-Urbana, Ill., I used to spend many enjoyable hours talking about music in that college town’s clubs and main record store. One of the hot debate topics, over and over again: Name the greatest rock band of all time...

The baffling Sheen beatification delay is embarrassing, but it could still turn out well...
Fr. Raymond de Souza
That postponement of the beatification of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen is just the latest baffling development in the cause that has brought no small measure of embarrassment to what should have been an occasion of edification. But the latest fiasco may finally get the Sheen beatification the treatment it deserves, namely a proper celebration for the universal Church...

Humility is underrated, misunderstood, and more important than ever...
Christopher Kaczor
Humility may be the most misunderstood of the virtues, but it remains one of the most important. Humility is important because it is needed to love God and other human beings. Since we cannot find true happiness without loving God and neighbor, we cannot find true happiness without humility. But what exactly is humility? The humble person is not the one who proclaims...


A last chance for Australian justice...
George Weigel
My late parents loved Cardinal George Pell, whom they knew for decades. So I found it a happy coincidence that, on November 12 (which would have been my parents’ 70th wedding anniversary), a two-judge panel of Australia’s High Court referred to the entire Court the cardinal’s request for “special leave” to appeal his incomprehensible conviction on charges of “historic sexual abuse...


George Lucas’ first credit was for this Catholic short film...
Philip Kosloski
Star Wars creator George Lucas began his legendary directing career first by getting behind the camera. Lucas graduated from Modesto Junior College in the early 1960s and then enrolled at the University of Southern California, where he began to experiment with cinematography. However, Lucas was struggling to find any work in Hollywood and needed something to give him more experience...

It’s official: Pope accepts resignation of Buffalo Bishop Richard Malone...
Rocco Palmo
And now, it's official – as first reported here on Monday, at Roman Noon this Wednesday the Pope has accepted the resignation of Richard Malone as 14th bishop of Buffalo, and named Bishop Edward Scharfenberger of Albany as apostolic administrator until the 15th bishop takes office. Both moves have immediate effect. On a context front...

“The Crown” and the primacy of grace...
Bishop Robert Barron
Like, I daresay, most of the English-speaking world, these past couple of years I’ve been watching episodes of The Crown, the beautifully filmed, marvelously written program on the life and times of Queen Elizabeth II. The series deals with the psychological dynamics within the royal family as well as with the cultural changes and political challenges that the Queen has faced in the course of her long reign...


Why Christians should embrace “neurodiversity”...
Fr. Matthew Schneider
I am an autistic priest. When I was first diagnosed with autism as a priest, my superiors gave me a choice regarding how public I wanted to be about being diagnosed. One point always resonates with me when I think about being autistic. Not long after I told my local religious community, one of the priests pointed out that now I found cross while many others struggle to recognize what their cross is...
