God or Nothing

Dear Friends for Life: In recent months, newspapers, magazines and news reporting have shown worsening trends regard current life issues. The slippery slope is widening and people’s lives are hurting. God is gradually being removed from society, leaving a road of confusion, suffering and hidden guilt. During my annual retreat earlier this year, Psalm 139 caught my attention with its powerful message on Life and God’s personal relationship to us as individuals. The Psalm is very meaningful and easy to understand. The Psalmist teaches us God’s direction to Life, Happiness and Truth. While reflecting on the greatness of God’s character to the reality of troublesome times surrounding us, a thought struck me, “What would the world be like without the living presence of God in my life, in the life of the world?” Continue reading at Fr.

New! John Henry Newman: An Ecumenical Conversion

New! Things Worth Dying For: The Nature of a Life Worth Living

Charles J. Chaput
It's a good thing, a vital thing, to consider what we're willing to die for. What do we love more than life? To even ask that question is an act of rebellion against a loveless age.

This essay is adapted from a lecture delivered on October 11, 2019, for the Constitutional Studies Program at the University of Notre Dame.

Fungible Human Rights for Negotiable Human Beings

Judie Brown
Somehow we, as a human race, have gotten it into our heads that babies are either something to be desired or not, something to be controlled or destroyed, or something to be tinkered with. Gone is the notion that human beings are created in the image and likeness of God and, thus, should be respected and cherished. Here are the days of doing whatever we want with our bodies and the babies created - no matter how - for whatever selfish reason we may deem acceptable.

Selling Homosexuality to America

Paul E. Rondeau
This article explores how gay rights activists use rhetoric, psychology, social psychology, and the media - all the elements of modern marketing - to position homosexuality in order to frame what is discussed in the public arena and how it is discussed.
