Imagine being a liberal Catholic under the reigns of JP2 and Benedict. As a liberal Catholic, you continue going to mass faithfully even though you disagree with the Pope on issues that are important to you. Combined, those reigns lasted about 35 years, from October 16, 1978 to February 28, 2013.  Imagine going for 35 […]

I walked into the parish not knowing what to expect. A large silver bowl filled with water sat in a wooden pedestal in the center of the foyer. As people walked by it, they dipped their fingers into the water, then with a single dab they touched their foreheads, their chests, then each shoulder. Feeling […]

Justice we think about mostly to blame someone for injustice. It’s not a pleasant topic of conversation, but our strong feelings about justice, especially anger, nevertheless make it impossible to put aside. An old liberalism, supposedly able to quell anger, required that polite conversation avoid religion & politics. But that opinion was abandoned & forward […]

That’s the only thing I can conclude from watching the very funny first episode of the new sitcom by just-about-my-favorite comedian, Jim Gaffigan. The cameos alone were amazing – people who have been the topic of many a post here at Ricochet. Would you believe  – Jon Stewart? and Glenn Beck? Preview Open

One of the things that convinced me of the truth of the claims of the Catholic Church is its view of human sexuality and marriage. I found it very beautiful, compelling, and a proclamation of truth. Once I understood the teaching, I thought to myself, “If the Catholics are right about this, what else are […]

The question at hand: What is the doctrine of the Catholic church regarding the salvation of non-Catholic Christians? This question arose in the commentary on MJBubba’s excellent post about SSM and the Indiana RFRA, titled “Ricochet vs. anti-gay Christians.”  It generated an interesting exchange, but was rather off-topic, as it arose in my response to […]

I read the news about Our Savior church in New York city, and I pour over emails I’ve received in the past year and it reminds me of the other times I’ve watched a successful traditional parish destroyed. Let’s not pull any bones here — when you read the letter Fr. Rutler wrote when he […]

Our sufferings today are the prelude of those you, Europeans and Western Christians, will also suffer in the near future. I lost my diocese. The physical setting of my apostolate has been occupied by Islamic radicals who want us converted or dead. But my community is still alive. Please, try to understand us. Your liberal […]

We’re officially entering the mirrored fun-house. Check this out: “There is more support for official Roman Catholic Church ‘positions’ among evangelical protestants than Catholics”  So said the man from Public Policy Research Institute, as quoted in the liberal magazine The Atlantic and picked up by Pertinacious Papist: Preview Open
