The Holy Mass is more than just a trip down memory lane...
Fr. Dwight Longenecker
I remember once a seminarian asked me if I got tired of saying Mass and whether it wasn’t “a bit boring sometimes?” The answer is no. Somehow each time one celebrates Mass the Holy Spirit is at work within that great prayer. Sometimes your mind goes to something or someone who needs to be brought to the altar in prayer. Other times a new meaning or detail in the readings or the words of the Mass come alive in a new way...

Full text of seven German bishops’ letter on Holy Communion for Protestant spouses...
Edward Pentin
The Register obtains a copy of the March 22 missive which expresses serious concerns about the recent German bishops’ decision to give Holy Communion to Protestant spouses in some cases. Sources say the seven bishops’ call for clarification, which is being fiercely opposed by the German episcopal conference, has the full support of Benedict XVI...


When it comes to Alfie Evans, extraordinary actions by Pope and Italy draw little ink in America...
Terry Mattingly
Once again, people who care about religion news have proof – as if they needed more – that not everything Pope Francis does and says is worthy of intense coverage by elite news media. What's the overarching trend? When Pope Francis sounds small-o "orthodox," it isn't news. When this pope sounds small-p "progressive...


The Pope's kitchen cabinet right now is a distracted bunch...
John Allen
According to William Shakespeare, “the course of true love never did run smooth.” Pope Francis might be forgiven right now for thinking much the same thing is true of efforts to reform the Roman Curia, meaning the central bureaucracy of the Vatican. Francis was elected in March 2013 partly on a mandate to clean up a perceived governance mess in the Vatican...


A call to humility in the mystery of the Seven Thunders of the Apocalypse...
Msgr. Charles Pope
In the Office of Readings last week, we examined some of the more terrifying passages from the Book of Revelation, related to the seven trumpets, seals, and bowls of wrath. There is also a reference to the underreported “seven thunders,” reminding us that there are some things that are not for us to know. Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven...

Hero nun of World War II, the Angel of Dieppe, dies at 103...
Matthew Archbold
A nun who became known as The “Angel of Dieppe,” for her heroic efforts in caring for WWII soldiers at the disastrous Battle of Dieppe, died at 103 years old. Sister Agnès-Marie Valois of Canada, an Augustinian nun, was trained as a surgical nurse before the war. She passed away on April 19 at a monastery near Dieppe, France...

We’re a people in need of ‘Babette’s Feast’...
Kathryn Jean Lopez
Everything seems to become at once deeper and lighter from the moment you sit down in the Theatre at St. Clement’s Episcopal Church for the off-Broadway production of Babette’s Feast. Originally a short story first published in English in Ladies’ Home Journal, it’s the story of a Christian community in Berlevag, Norway – “the most northern outpost of the continent of Europe in the arctic circle ...

It was a particularly mind-twisting conversation. A Protestant man on his way into the Church told me how much he loved praying to the saints. He loved the idea of saints being patrons of different things. I brought up Mary. I think I suggested he start saying the Angelus. He told me he didn’t like Mary being elevated over all the other saints...
