• A book report 100 years late

    In the past, I have written ad infinitum, some may say ad naseum about Catholic writers and Catholic filmmakers and still hold firm to the belief that great “Catholic” writing does not necessarily have to deal with overtly religious subject matter or even religiously inclined protagonists and antagonists.

  • The write stuff

    Writers writing about writing can be a dubious endeavor. Catholic writers writing about the “soul” of the Catholic writer is even more dangerous. So it is with a certain amount of trepidation that I sally forth and throw my rosary beads into the fray.

  • All the faithful can receive God's love in confession – Pope Francis

    God's love is offered to everyone who goes to the sacrament of confession, Pope Francis said in his new book on mercy – even those who are not able to receive absolution from their sins.

  • We're wounded – that’s why we need mercy, Pope Francis says

    In his new book on mercy Pope Francis offers extensive reflections on the topic that has shaped much of his pontificate, getting personal about his own experiences of mercy, what it means for him, and why humanity is in such desperate need of it.
