Celebrating ‘A Very Chrisley Christmas’

You have to give Todd Chrisley a lot of credit. Although he doesn’t live in Hollywood; he’s not related to anyone famous; he’s not a former sports star, celebrity attorney, musician, rapper or actor; he’s never been in jail; and he hasn’t stranded himself on a desert island, in the forest or in Alaska, he [...]

St. Nicholas and ‘The Klaubauf’s Wager’

Struggling urban store owners lost their livelihoods and life savings. The people of the town lost their trust in the justice system, or in their fellow citizens. [...]

No Greater Freedom

Each of us has our own hobbyhorses. Michael Sean Winters, for example, seems to have a thing about Philly’s Archbishop Chaput and the World Meeting of Families which Philadelphia will host next October. Winters is also very fond of hymns—a fine pastime, that—and of trying to curb overzealous Catholic prelates’ deficient notions of freedom, which Winters often takes [...]

NBC’s ‘Parenthood’: Producer Jason Katims on Amber’s Choice for Life

It’s one thing when the Church urges young women to choose life, but it’s quite another thing to see one woman’s decision played out in a secular context on primetime network television. In some ways, it’s even more powerful, and deeply human. On Friday, Nov. 7, NBC threw a party on the Universal Studios lot [...]
