The Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes--and the Wonderful Story of the Immaculate Conception
FEBRUARY 11 - FEAST OF OUR LADY OF LOURDES “I am the Immaculate Conception.” The young girl shook her head—she didn’t understand what she was hearing. The Lady had just told her who she was, but it made no sense to Bernadette. She had never heard those mysterious words before. * *

Everyone's Dying. Lent reminds us of that. Lent affords us an opportunity to reflect on our own mortality, and to change our lives.
It seems the news lately has been full of death: We’ve lost Hollywood actors like Alan Rickman, rock stars like David Bowie and the Eagles' Glenn Frey, Celine Dion's husband and manager René Angélil. We've lost politicans and athletes, writers and race car drivers. Every day, souls are propelled off this planet, separated from the twisted bodies

Cast and Crew of Sony Pictures' RISEN Visit the Vatican, Meet Pope Francis. My interview with RISEN star Joseph Fiennes 
“A deliciously beautiful film, while at the same time honorable and true to Scripture.” Actor Joseph Fiennes is talking about Affirm Films’ and Sony Pictures' upcoming release Risen, in which he plays an agnostic centurion serving under Pontius Pilate. It was my privilege to interview Fiennes during his U.S. visit last month, and to hear firsthand

Faith of Our Fathers: Abraham Lincoln's Daily Devotional 
Abraham Lincoln, in his Second Inaugural Address, quoted Matthew 7:1-3, a scripture which has become inextricably linked to the papacy of Pope Francis: “Let us judge not, that we be not judged.” Lincoln sought to move this nation forward with as little hate as possible; and so he repeated that “judge not” line when Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts

Why does the Catholic Church insist that you must attend Mass every Sunday?
Sunday’s coming. Where will you be? I got into a discussion recently with some good Catholic friends about going to church on Sunday. To my surprise, several of them had recently failed to fulfill their Sunday obligation to attend Mass. I’m pretty sure this is not a unique phenomenon among believers, even among those who consider themselves

On God and Government: Did President Obama Really Delete "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance? and more...
Did President Obama remove the words "Under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance, and order that it be banned from all government buildings in the nation? NO, HE DID NOT. That story has been repeated time and again this week in the media. It appears the source was a website called TD Alliance,

On Superbowl Sunday: Remembering the Heidi Game, the Great Pumpkin and the Family Hour 
In honor of tonight's Superbowl game, I am reposting an article from November 2014 about the "Heidi game" and a more recent television scandal. * * * * Do you remember the Heidi Game? On November 17, 1968, the Oakland Raiders defeated the New York Jets

The Dalmatic Is Dramatic--But Where Did It Come From? (Can you tell the difference between a priest and a deacon?)
http://kathyschiffer.com/why-do-catholics-do-that/the-dalmatic-is-dramatic-but-where-did-it-come-from/

Priests wear chasubles. Deacons wear dalmatics. My own husband is a deacon, so I already know that. An awful lot of Catholics don’t know, though, how to tell the difference between the liturgical attire for a priest and a deacon. Deacon's DALMATIC in green, the color

God at the Iowa Caucus: How the candidates pray tells you something about how they will lead.
There are no atheists in foxholes, says the old saw; and likewise, you've got to dislodge a lot of rocks to dig up the atheists in political campaigns. A recent Pew study reported that 51% of Americans say they would be “less likely” to vote for an atheist. So perhaps I shouldn't be surprised to
