In Rome he reorganized the Catholic hierarchy disrupted by the persecution. He was exiled and put to labor. He is considered a martyr as he died in 309 because of his treatment during his exile.Read More

It was from St. Jerome (+ 420) that the west learned of the life of St. Paul the Hermit; the book, which he devoted to the life of the first Christian hermit, charmed and instructed generations of the faithful and formed the inspiration of many artists. St. Paul is said to have died in 341, in a hermitage in the region of Thebes in Egypt after having received at the age of 113 a visit from St. Antony. According to the 1962 Missal of St. John XXIII the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, St. Paul is celebrated as a Confessor, III class and St. Maurus is commemorated.Read More

Along with St. Hilary his feast is celebrated today on the Extraordinary Form Calendar. St. Hilary's feast is celebrated on January 13 in the Ordinary Form Calendar.Read More

BISHOP BARRON'S ARTICLES

While I was in Chicago for the Christmas break, I had a wonderful meeting with around thirty young Jesuits. They were massively impressive people: smart, articulate, passionate about their work, and dedicated to the Gospel. Toward the end of our time together, one of the men posed a question that, he warned, would “put me on the spot”—and the discussion then became especially lively and illuminating.Read More

During this Christmas holiday, I’ve been reading Anthony Gottlieb’s breezy and enjoyable history of modern philosophy, entitled “The Dream of Enlightenment.” I found his chapter on Spinoza extremely clarifying and indeed useful as a foil for what I take to be a properly religious view of things. Answering him point by point is a good exercise for anyone who would aspire to evangelize the culture today.Read More

Over the Christmas break, I spent a fair amount of time binge-watching Jordan Peterson videos. Of the many Peterson videos, the ones that intrigued me the most featured his dialogues with Sam Harris, one of the “four horsemen of the new atheism” and perhaps the most strident critic of religion on the scene today.Read More

Indian prelate questions usefulness of 'traditional formulations' of doctrine, 'strict application of the Law' (AsiaNews)
01/16/19 5:01 am
Bishop Thomas Dabre of Poona, 73, delivered the opening address at the January meeting of India’s Latin-rite bishops. He added, “In our situation, people do not properly understand and appreciate the orthodox formulations ... Hindus say all rivers will go to the ocean so also all people of different religions will go to God. Jainism and Buddhism affirm that one is one’s own saviour by one’s own effort. These views do need to be seriously considered as we affirm the vicarious role of Christ and his sacrifice.”Read More

Vatican City, Jan 16, 2019 / 05:05 am (CNA/EWTN News).- God the Father will always be there for his beloved children, Pope Francis said Wednesday, with a reminder that the unconditional love of God is not limited by our own sense of guilt or unworthiness.
“God is looking for you, even if you do not seek Him. God loves you, even if you forget Him. God sees beauty in you, even if you think you have squandered all your talents in vain,” Pope Francis said in his general audience Jan. 16.Read More

Commentary on the Culture
01/15/19 12:22 pm
I admit it: I am getting so jaded that I initially misread one of yesterday’s Catholic World News headlines: CDF, Asian bishops to discuss challenges to Catholic doctrine. I thought it said “CDF, Asian bishops to discuss CHANGES to Catholic doctrine”. Perhaps this suggests a certain accuracy in the recent Gallup report that confidence in the “honest and ethical standards” of clergy is down among American Catholics, plummeting from 61% in 2008 to 31% today.Read More
