Faith and Justice: Believers must join in condemning contemptuous and hateful speech directed at any religious group.
Faith and Justice
Faith and Justice: When I was a young political science student, a criticism of American political parties was that they did not stand for anything.
Faith and Justice: Pope Francis is known for preaching the compassion and mercy of God, but he can be pretty tough on priests and bishops.
Faith and Justice: The papal apostolic exhortation in response to the Synod of Bishops on the family is expected to have some reference to the “internal forum” as a solution to the pastoral problems of divorced and remarried Catholics.
Faith and Justice: No governance system is perfect since it has to be run by fallible human beings. But the church's current highly centralized system has come under heavy fire.
Faith and Justice: After the Iowa caucuses, how will Catholics vote in the Republican and Democratic primaries? Catholic voters make a difference in presidential primaries, for both parties.
Faith and Justice: Having written extensively on Pope Francis' encyclical on the environment, I decided it was time to see how I could implement it in my life.
Faith and Justice: Perhaps as early as March, Pope Francis will issue his much-anticipated document on the family. Will he take many recommendations from the draft or present his own vision?
Faith and Justice: The weakness of the conservative cause was shown by its need to use power when persuasion failed, but the liberal Catholic voice has never been successfully organized in the U.S.
Faith and Justice: I have some sympathy with what conservatives are experiencing today because I went through a similar experience in the late 1960s.
