‘The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns’ Portrays the ‘Reality’ of Religious Life

Floods of tears; ecstatic, frankly romantic visions of Jesus; low points and high drama — you’re either reading St. Therese’s autobiography “The Story of a Soul” or you’re watching “The Sisterhood: Becoming Nuns.” Of course, one of these is a classic work of spirituality by a Doctor of the Church, and the other is a [...]

Tenor Daniel Rodriguez ‘Would Love’ the Pope to Hear His New Christmas CD

Pentatonix Hails Mary on New Christmas CD

Ready it or not, it’s the Christmas season — and it’s fitting that one of the first bits of new music honors the woman who made it all possible. It’s true that, on balance, Catholics spend a great deal more time thinking and talking about — let alone praying t0 — Mary, the Mother of [...]

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.

UPDATED — EWTN Joins the Prayer War Against the Oklahoma City Black Mass (Video)

The Oklahoma City black mass is going on as planned at the Civic Center on Sunday, Sept. 21, but in a somewhat altered form. The usually nude female “altar” will be wearing lingerie, vinegar replaces human urine, and the pilfered Consecrated Host has been returned to its rightful owner, the Catholic Church, in the person [...]

Mother Angelica and the Crusades: Two Videos That Speak Truth to Power

There are a lot of folks out there that subscribe to the notion that if you don’t have anything nice to say, you shouldn’t say anything at all. But if that prevents you from speaking the truth when people need to hear it, that’s no virtue. Yelling “Fire!” in a crowded theater could be a [...]
