St. Joseph: Present or Absent at the Visitation? http://catholicexchange.com/st-joseph-present-absent-visitation
Recently a particular thought pervaded my meditation—whether or not St. Joseph was present for the Visitation. I asked several of my friends their thoughts. Most of them told me either they never thought about it before or they thought Joseph did not. I knew what my initial thoughts were, and I thought that I would …

The Visitation and Mary, the Walking Tabernacle http://catholicexchange.com/visitation-mary-walking-tabernacle
Do we react the same way that John the Baptist reacted? We have the benefit of 2,000 years of reflection; the benefit of centuries, millennia, of the most gifted theological minds grappling with the questions of the Eucharist, struggling to understand in some small way this great and august Mystery. We have beautifully-worded church documents which inspire great reflection on and devotion to the Eucharist. We even have developed practices that ar...

Scripture Speaks: The Gift of the Eucharist http://catholicexchange.com/scripture-speaks-gift-eucharist
This week, we celebrate Jesus’ gift of His Body and Blood in the Eucharist to His Church and the world. Yet our Gospel takes us back to the feeding of the five thousand. Why? Gospel (Read Lk 9:11b-17) On this solemnity of Corpus Christi, we might expect our Gospel to be an account of the …

Corpus Christi and the Mystical Body of Christ http://catholicexchange.com/corpus-christi-mystical-body-christ
Christ promised to be with us always, even unto “the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20) Each time we walk into a Catholic Church and see a flickering red light we are reminded of how he continues to keep this promise, through his Eucharistic presence. Growing up Catholic, attending a Catholic school, and very much …

The results of a recent survey on divorced (or separated) couples indicates that many married couples face crises in their marriages when the wives began to earn more money than their husbands. It appeared that the higher wages of the wife was a major factor behind the many tensions in the marriage that eventually led …

She was to die. The doctors had not said as much, but once the word cancer was uttered I knew it was only a matter of time. My mother took the news as she had taken all else in life: with an act of faith. She had been diagnosed just prior to Ash Wednesday; she …

Fernando III of Castilla: Saint, King, and Conqueror http://catholicexchange.com/fernando-iii-of-castilla-saint-king-conqueror
Fernando III of Castilla was the leader Christian Spain had long awaited. A just ruler, a merciful conqueror, a man of prayer and strict aestheticism, a great protector of the mendicant orders, and above all, a devoted subject of Jesus and Mary; St. Fernando was a Third Order Franciscan, a loving husband and father, and the Spanish ruler who won more territory back from the Moors than any other Christian leader in the Reconquista to date. When Fe...

This week we will celebrate the great Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, colloquially known as the feast of Corpus Christi (“the body of Christ”).

“Oh! how I wish I could make you realize what I mean! …It is trust, and nothing but trust, that must bring us to Love.” ∼ St. Therese of Lisieux In that wonderful Pre-Raphaelite painting by Holman Hunt, called “Light of the World,” in which Jesus is shown gently knocking on a door so that …

St. Philip Neri: The Humorous Side of Humilityhttp://catholicexchange.com/st-philip-neri-humorous-side-humility
We live in a world that takes itself too seriously. As it turns out, there is a saint to help us: St. Philip Neri. St. Philip Neri’s unique and comical approach to the spiritual life and the fostering of this virtue can help each one of us on our own journey to the Most Holy Trinity.

Most people are aware that Pope John Paul II credited Mary’s intercession for sparing his life when four bullets from a would-be assassin struck him while he was blessing pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square on May 13, 1981. A year to the day later, the pope placed one of those bullets in Mary’s crown at …

Bringing the message of Christ as proclaimed by the Catholic Church to the world
Introduction
Catholic Exchange is a non-profit media organization that seeks to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the world through the modern tools of mass communication. 

Inspired by Pope John Paul II's call for a "Springtime of a New Evangelization," and in faithfulness to Pope Benedict XVI, we strive to "put out into the deep" a relevant response to the need for greater catechesis and revival of the lay faithful.
