'The basic cell of society'
We feel more hopeful for mothers, fathers and children because this humble, graceful man has devoted so much of his life to them.

Let your children learn
Our kids and teachers are back in school, whether they’re our own children, our grandchildren, our neighbor’s children, or that lady who usually sits behind us in the pews who is a teacher.

The way the pope sees
We are delighted that Pope Francis continues to design the church as a field hospital. But make no mistake — the pope’s work is a firm challenge to 21st-century America.

An article about Frs. John Domin and Edmond Bliven in the Aug. 7 issue omitted an important fact about Father Domin.

Middle class good for all

In the white-hot heat of global capitalism, the American middle class is drying up and blowing away. We must reverse the damage.

Misfortune calls for mercy
Ten years ago, America watched the Katrina coverage with growing horror. Throughout September 2005, the images showed a nightmarish situation in what seemed like some foreign country. The days went by and still people were stuck on roofs and in the ring-of-hell that the New Orleans Superdome had become. The Houston Astrodome was incomparably better, but still was a dystopian, Mad Max scene.

Ferguson? Who cares?
A year of prayerful events and projects aimed at bringing people together along with efforts to bring improved education and jobs to urban youth should be our focus as we strive for progress in these areas.

Wise leaders needed now more than ever
Jesus Christ is not running for public office this year, so we have no choice but to select candidates who are less than perfect. Wisdom does not demand perfection, but it does require intelligence, experience and, above all, good character.

Our segregated schools
This fall, millions of children already disadvantaged by the burdens of poverty will return to failing schools. Only when the fate of black and brown and white students is intertwined can our country go beyond interminable reform battles and move on to build an education system that our children deserve and our democracy demands.

Back-to-school charity
For many families in need across Oregon, going back to school means a struggle to acquire funds for the purchase of those supplies, which is not always easy for those on a fixed income.

They teach us discipleship
In addition to their many good works and the prayers they say on our behalf, religious priests, brothers and sisters are important because of their witness.

World meeting of families: a place for faith, unity and conversion
For many Americans, and certainly for many American Catholics, the beginning of fall in Philadelphia is a much bigger deal this year than most.

Finding dignity and purpose in work
What is your attitude toward work? Do you work in order to live, or do you live in order to work? How do you express yourself through your work? Do you feel that you accomplish something of value most days, or do you feel that your labor is meaningless toil that only achieves your minimal paycheck?

A summer reflection on the cross
I was there when Father Ted Hesburgh was buried under a blanket of snow in that cemetery;I want to see his grave covered now with green grass and surrounded by the squat cross markers of hundreds of his companions in the call to follow Christ in the Congregation of Holy Cross.

Take of two polls - or four
A lot of Catholics were bemused and then gratified by Pope Francis’ nearly immediate popularity. Recent news about Pope Francis’ poll numbers, which are still high but not as high, was sad.

Abortion explanations won't work any more
Over the years the pro-abortion lobby has attempted to change the conversation about abortion from the death of innocent children to women’s reproductive and health care rights. And for a great deal of the American public this argument has worked. Until now.

The Supreme Decision

On June 26, Justice Anthony Kennedy announced that the Supreme Court ruled that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage by a 5-4 vote. Now is not a time for forcing our wills on others, but a time to renew our trust and devote ourselves to follow God’s will together.

When baby parts are worth more than the baby
When you cut through the tortured logic Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards employs to defend the primacy of privacy over the natural law, what you are left with, unfortunately for the nation's abortion Goliath, is the child.

Christianity vs. sexual revolution

In case you haven't noticed, we're in the middle of a war between Christianity and the sexual revolution. It has been going on since the 1960s with the development of oral contraceptives, which allowed women to engage in sexual activities with less fear of becoming pregnant.
