Head of victim family group to speak in Portland
Those who lose a loved one to murder feel unimaginable sadness, sorrow, rage and anger. But members of Murder Victim Families for Reconciliation explain that the death penalty doesn’t help. Instead, they say things like: “Don’t kill in my name”, or “An execution is only more violence and does not bring closure.”

We could not have imagined
On the morning of March 13, 2013, my classmates and I came inside from break to see a live video of Vatican City projected on the board in front of us.

How long must we wait to end abortion?
I suggest that, rather than blindly supporting people who make big promises about stopping abortion but do not seem to ever follow through, that we look for people, programs and measures that support services to pregnant women. We can also roll up our own sleeves and get to work helping pregnant women in local shelters, community programs and outreach efforts.

X-Men: Apocalypse

NEW YORK (CNS) — One can only hope that "X-Men: Apocalypse" spells not the end of the world, as the title implies, but the conclusion of this tiresome franchise.

After all, how much more global destruction and superhuman angst can a reasonable moviegoer take?

A Hologram for the King

NEW YORK (CNS) — The simple joys of a stable career and a second chance at love are celebrated in "A Hologram for the King" (Lionsgate).

The Darkness

NEW YORK (CNS) — A cut-rate budget leaves the possession-themed horror flick "The Darkness" (BH Tilt) looking more than a bit frayed around the edges.

Big frights? Not here. Telekinesis? Nope. In fact, the low-rent demon at the center of it all mostly likes to turn on spigots when someone leaves a room.

'The joy of love,' a first look
This exhortation cannot be read in isolation. That is a danger that I frequently see when the Church issues a new document, even by the Pope. Some people will latch on to the new, thinking that this is all we need to read or know.

The Trinity Reveals a God of Love
Of this I am sure:  any and every human attempt to express God's self-revelation and our response to that revelation is limited by the simple reality that God is too great for us ever to comprehend much less commit to writing.
