Planned Barrenhood Parenthood is getting hammered with evidence that they profit off of the sale of the body parts of fetal remains from abortions. And it’s about time. Three undercover videos released by the Center for Medical Progress reveal Planned Parenthood representatives haggling over prices for body parts and even suggesting they alter their abortion […]
There’s a lot to enjoy in episode 2 of Daredevil. The acting, the revelations about Matt Murdock’s past, the introduction of new characters — including, and especially, Claire. [If you haven’t already, now’s a good time to read Part 1 in this series.] Played by Rosario Dawson, Claire is a nurse who has the pleasure(?)
For months I’ve been a little annoyed on the road. I see these bumper stickers that market a lie, and I can’t help but be bothered. One advertises the lie that the sexual act of two men is equivalent to the sexual act of a man and woman. Another purports that all religions and worldviews
[Edit – July 27: Mea culpa! Fr. Z. has rightly noted that I failed to declare that I was speaking only about the Ordinary Form of the Mass. I imagine anyone familiar with the Extraordinary Form recognized my undeclared specificity rather quickly. Regardless, no disrespect intended; many of us at EpicPew are fond of the EF.
St. Mary Magdalene’s feast day is July 22 and it can be said that hers was perhaps Jesus’ greatest conversion of a woman. She is named at least 12 times in the four Gospels, which is more than most of the apostles. Jesus loved her and she loved him all the way to the foot of the
I recently had the pleasure of attending the funeral of a holy and faithful man. One of this man’s daughters is a very close friend to my wife and I and we felt it an honor to be present for his funeral Mass. My wife and I flew out to see the family a few

*This letter by Abby Johnson originally appeared at LifeSiteNews.com Dear Dr. Nucatola, I watched the video put out with your face on it. I heard you talking about harvesting fetal body parts. I saw you sip your wine while talking about how to remove an intact fetus. I want you to know that I’m not
Spending 12 years in homeschool as the oldest of 4, I learned a thing or two. Public school kids think we’re somehow deficient on common experiences, but let me put this to rest: there are dozens of things that only homeschoolers understand. 1. There is no correct way to spell “Homeschool” Home school, Home-school, Homeschool?
Call it “the hill”, “the bubble”, “the light to the nations”, “the bootcamp”, or whatever you’d like; but here’s how you know if you truly call Franciscan University of Steubenville “home”. You’ve played “spot the homeschooler” You honed your craft of picking out the backpack runners and pride yourself on your accuracy. You’re either in
The last thing we want to is insult someone, most of all our priests. However, sometimes, words slip, are chosen unwisely, or just come out wrong. There are though, things you should NEVER say to a priest. Here’s a few: 1. “So…did women not find you attractive or something?” How is a priest supposed
The Second Vatican Council Document Orientalium Ecclesiarum, The Decree on the Catholic Churches of the East, says: “All members of the Eastern Rite should know and be convinced that they can and should always preserve their legitimate liturgical rite and their established way of life…” (no. 6) and… If any separated Christian should, under the guidance of
Sometimes people can be weird. They say weird things that leave you wondering if they heard themselves say it. My husband and I became Catholic about 3 years ago. And because I live a pretty public life, I’ve heard some of the strangest and sometimes offensive things from other Catholics. To be helpful, and also a
