‘Civil’ Marriage Does Not Exist

If we Catholics ever hope to convince supporters of same-sex “marriage” that it isn’t real, we first have to convince ourselves that “civil marriage” is just as unreal. Sure, the State thinks it controls something that it likes to call “civil marriage,” as though it is really a thing. But the Catholic view of marriage […]

Charlotte Bishop Peter Jugis has cancelled a speaking event by Sister Jennine Gramick that was scheduled to take place at one of the parishes in his diocese.

500 Priests in England and Wales Just Signed A Letter That Everyone Should Read

This letter may well be considered a historical document someday. Nearly 500 priests from England and Wales have signed a letter, published in the UK Catholic Herald this week, in which they state in no uncertain terms that the upcoming synod on the family should uphold the Church’s teaching on marriage. Hopefully this will be […]

A Catholic School Teacher Under Attack

You would expect a teacher working for a liberal, progressive school to get in trouble for putting up a Facebook post with an impassioned critique of the gay rights movement’s use of the 14th Amendment. You would not expect a teacher working for a Catholic school to get in trouble for such a posting.  But […]
