“It’s not a happy experience” — Pro-abortion Sen. Dick Durbin says he’s been banned from receiving Communion in his home diocese for 17 years...
A week after President Biden said that Pope Francis told him he was a “good Catholic” and should “keep receiving Communion,” and just days before the U.S. bishops meet to discuss the draft document on Eucharistic coherence, America Media published a strange interview with Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Illinois, the powerful chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
4 key clarifications about bishops, public officials, and Holy Communion...
As the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops prepares to meet in Baltimore, misconceptions about a proposed conference statement on the Eucharistic vitality and integrity of the Church in America abound. The confusions originating from online Catholic sources and social media have been exacerbated by a mainstream press that has consistently misrepresented what the bishops are doing...
Today is the 100th anniversary of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery...
Exactly 100 years ago, on Nov. 11, 1921, thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and ordinary citizens joined President Warren G. Harding and scores of dignitaries from throughout the United States and worldwide at Arlington National Cemetery for the dedication of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
A message from Omaha Beach...
I know a woman who visited the famous Omaha Beach, where the D-Day invasion occurred, and she met a veteran there she didn’t expect to encounter. He’d been a Nazi soldier at D-Day. And he shared with her the terror that he felt seeing a massive fleet of ships approach the beach. And when the Allies had gotten the upper hand, he had one bullet left in his gun and he thought, “This is the end.”
New film tells the story of C.S. Lewis, the ‘most reluctant convert’...
Acclaimed theater actor McLean plays the middle-aged Lewis, who looks back on the events that began his journey from vigorous debunker of Christianity to arguably the most influential Christian writer of the 20th century. Nicholas Ralph, star of the PBS Masterpiece hit All Creatures Great and Small, plays Lewis as a young man who has a difficult relationship with his father before going off to the trenches in the Great War...
Sacred Scripture offers this stern warning for those who have authority and influence...
During the current political period, when many leaders will be elected, we do well to recall the strong admonitions of God to those who attain to leadership, whether as politicians, community leaders, teachers, or others of significant influence. The Book of Wisdom contains a stern warning for those of authority and influence. This problem is older than the current year...

Why Catholics stay, USCCB preview, and the Lateran basilica...
If you’re a convert to Catholicism, or if you didn’t grow up celebrating many liturgical feast days, it might seem a bit weird that the Church periodically celebrates these feasts like today, that are about buildings rather than saints. I’ll write about that a little later in the newsletter. But first...

The Benedictines have more saints than any other order — and this Saturday is their feast day...
November 13th is the feast of All Benedictine Saints. The Benedictines have more Saints and Doctors of the Church than any other order, largely because their history stretches back to the 6th century. The number of saints begins to thin out in the latter part of the Middle Ages, as the emphasis shifts to more active orders, and then dries up almost altogether in the modern period, apart from the martyrs of the Reformation and French Revolution.
12 ways to overcome a scrupulous conscience...
Most of us have experienced scruples in our spiritual life and some of us have found them spiritually crippling. St. Ignatius of Loyola defines scruple as “when I freely decide that that is sin which is not sin.” The scrupulous conscience sees sin where there is none. We should distinguish this from a sensitive or tender conscience...

The Kalaam Cosmological argument is one of the more popular arguments for God’s existence. In essence, it states (1) that anything that has a beginning must have a cause, (2) that the universe has a beginning, and so (3) the universe must have a cause, which is God. There have been various attempts to show philosophically that the universe has a beginning, but these arguments don’t work.
Dualism is dangerous, false — and popular. Here’s how you can learn to recognize it...
Dualism is essentially the idea that the cosmos consists of two powers: the light and the dark and that these two powers are always at war with one another. Dualism is the spiritual philosophy you would come up with if you were making up your own religion. It seems obvious that there is good and evil, light and dark–two forces in opposition. Furthermore, dualism is a popular trend in contemporary culture...

It’s only Tuesday, but I’ve already got a candidate for the Vatican soundbite of the week. It came in a piece in the Financial Times, quoting an unidentified expert on the London real estate market on news that the Vatican is selling a property in the posh Chelsea neighborhood for $270 million, representing roughly a $130 million loss on its original investment of $400 million.

Cardinal Blase Cupich on Monday published an essay outlining his sense of the principles behind Traditionis custodes, Pope Francis’ limitations on celebrations of the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. Perhaps unsurprisingly, the cardinal is very clear on what he believes those principles to be, and how they line up with the intentions of the Holy Father...
This Sunday, even Jesus imitated the widow’s mite...
In the Gospel for the 32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Jesus is weeks away from his sacrifice on the cross when he observes a poor woman giving all she has to the Temple treasury. She stands as a warning against the wrong kind of giving — and a beautiful example of the remarkable gift he makes on the cross for us at every Mass. We get the phrase “the widow’s mite” from the King James translation of this Gospel passage.
