Pope Francis, Humanae Vitae, and Margery Eagen’s devastating fallacies
Filipinos at Pope Francis’ Mass in Manila, Jan. 18. (Photo: AFP/Ted Aljibe.) You would think that a writer billed as a “spirituality columnist” for a website that professes to cover “all things Catholic” would have some familiarity with Catholic teaching, e...

Talking smack about the Pope
It’s been over a week now, and certain people still haven’t
gotten over the spanking Maureen Mullarkey received for her
rather slanderous attack on Pope Francis . And a spanking it was; R. R.

Catholic Blogisterium overreacts to German bishops’ statements
Cdl. Reinhard Marx at 2010 consistory: “That's the one that got away!” (Allessia Giuliani/CPP/Ciric) In a completely unsurprising move, traditionalist members of the Catholic Blogisterium, such as Catholic Connection and Rorate Caeli, have flown into a pani...
