In its earliest days, Christianity was a faith associated with cities. Cities were the spots chosen by the Apostles to begin spreading the Good News, the earliest Christian communities were found in city centers, and cities quickly became the focal points of persecution of Christians—and the blood of the martyrs was always the seed of the Church. B…

When Joseph Ratzinger became pope in 2005, there was a perception in some quarters that this new pontiff—a renowned theologian and former head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith—was a highbrow academic who would preach from the chair of St. Peter in abstruse theoretical language that the average Catholic would find impenetr…

In his latest book “Why Does Everything Come in Threes?” philosopher and author Peter Kreeft ponders the ways in which creation—and the story of humanity in creation—are indelibly stamped with the image of the Creator, that is, with the Trinity.

Because the Catholic Church has always taught that only men can be ordained to the priesthood instituted by Christ, there is a perception that the Church’s story is a story about men. There’s the Blessed Mother, of course, and maybe the occasional nun who rises to prominence, but since only men can be ordained, the thinking goes, it is men who have…

They’re simple questions, and ones that every believer has to confront at some point in his or her life: why do we suffer, and why does God—who we believe to be good and loving—allow it? Humanity’s struggles with these questions have inspired countless works of art and literature—from the book of Job on through the ages—as well as theological treat…

In a society that often claims to value the voices of the marginalized, one group that find themselves frequently silenced by the very people claiming to speak for them are detransitioners—men and women who have gone down the road of “gender transition,” only to change their minds, embrace their biological sex, and reverse course. In this episode, …

God is "more intimate to me than I am to myself," says Augustine. God lives in the deepest part of our being—the Mariana Trench of us, even deeper than our very identity. But if that's true, then we are, even in our remotest corners, in the very heart of God himself. And becoming aware of this could change everything.…
