Mea Maxima Cuppa
Of course there will always be things we don’t necessarily want to do. But I submit that God will make them bearable because we are taking up his yoke rather than some newfangled hotness we think he wants us to carry.

Why we Catholics do what we do
Realizing the meaning of what Catholics do during Mass has enriched my faith, and has me looking forward to attending Mass every Sunday.

Catholic apps to keep you prayerful, biblical, up-to-date
Of course, one cannot forget their spiritual life amidst this new access to Catholic news. The Bible app is a no-brainer, but there are additional apps that provide the daily readings such as the Magnificat app.

To pot smokers: Recall common good
If marijuana use must be legal in Oregon — a big mistake — we should at least make sure those who use the drug don’t flaunt the common good. Day after day, regular Oregonians walking, biking or driving down the street must go through pungent clouds of smoke.

Oppose a demagogue
In The Philippines, the bloodthirsty president-elect is showing nothing but ignorance and malice when it comes to Catholicism, good sense and moral behavior. That even though 80 percent of his people adhere to our faith.

Home is where the Eucharist is
For the first time, I knew exactly what to do, what I was supposed to say and I did not need any guide to point me in the right direction—I was home.

What is a priest?
“What is a priest?” is a question I have asked all of my life since I was about six years old and noticed a brief cheerful Capuchin named Father Hugh at our dinner table every few weeks.

We thought you might like to meet us, the Catholics of Portland, and learn what we do and what we stand for. You might be surprised.

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. Our fifth grade teacher, Mrs. Withers, was fascinated by what was happening and told us that the leaders of the church were about to make their decision on who was to be the new pope.

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.

New Catholics
Regarding April 1 “A longing to be Catholic: fulfilled at the Easter Vigil” report about the four new Catholics; it was just wonderful.

Challenged to be hospitable
We’re glad and proud to hear that Catholic Community Services of Lane County will coordinate a refugee welcome program, making a home for families from Iraq, Syria and other troubled lands. We should also feel challenged.

Bring on the 'Catholic' guilt - we can take it
Bottom line: don’t reject feelings of guilt outright. Feeling bad doesn’t mean you’re bad — rather, it might just mean you have a well-formed conscience.

Farewell from the editor
More than a year ago I assumed the reins of the prestigious Catholic Sentinel with the commitment to take it to the highest possible place in its evangelizing mission. Today, with great sorrow, I inform you that for family reasons, I conclude this noble work.

Thanks to distinguished pro-life leader
Though Richard Doerflinger and Oregon Catholics didn’t prevail 20 years ago when it came to countering doctor-assisted suicide, the fight was clean, consistent and sensible. Some day, history will smile upon our cause.

In a nation already struggling with poverty, this disaster threatens many lives and CRS has been there for years and so know how to help better than anyone else.

Beautiful crucifix
It was one of the nicest things that ever happened to me in my writing career.

Bible doesn't justify it

Christians have often misused scripture to justify the death penalty. This is not only unscholarly, but a decidedly un-Christian practice of using the Bible to support violent acts against fellow human beings.

What is a pope?

We all have heard about the pope. Pope Francis this, Pope Francis that. But why do we even have a pope? He doesn’t do anything, does he?
