Stole this from Ignatius Press’ Facebook page: “The supreme adventure is being born. There we do walk suddenly into a splendid and startling trap. There we do see something of which we have not dreamed before. Our father and mother do lie in wait for us and leap out on us, like brigands from a […]

In case you missed it the first time around, I’ve re-published my article The Catholic Church is No Enemy of Science or the Infertile over at Ignitum Today: Because of her opposition to third party reproduction, the Catholic Church is often accused of being anti-science and insensitive to those who suffer the pain of infertility.

There are a few stories that I was going to try to post on today, but I’ve got a busy couple of days ahead of me…and I’m sure most of you do as well! Even if you’re just going to relax this Thanksgiving, I’m sure you’ll be visiting with family and NOT browsing the blogosphere. […]

JC Sanders has the best analysis of this whole mess I’ve read yet: The facts are not all in just yet—in fact, very few facts have really been made available at all.

“Today I’m going to marry my best friend!” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen that announcement or something similar to it (“today my best friend asked me to marry him,” etc…) on Facebook. That’s why I was so intrigued to read this article from Marjorie Campbell on why she’s glad her husband […]

God’s real strength is not mere human strength—it is not a matter of physical, mental, or intellectual abilities, useful though they may be. God’s strength is made perfect in man’s weakness, as St. Paul says.1 We are invited to let ourselves be visited in our littleness, our poverty, our weaknesses, to receive a new strength: […]

To say that Christopher West is busy spreading the Gospel of the Theology of the Body would be an understatement. On top of teaching several week-long TOB immersion courses at the TOB institute, he’s got a seventh book coming out next January, he’s about to embark on a second national tour with the folk-rock group […]

It’s been a long time since I’ve done one of these posts or even mentioned the Theology of the Body here at all. Continuing his series on Blessed John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility over at the Integrated Catholic Life, Dr. Edward Sri has written a new article giving a very brief explanation of some […]
