The Final Word? Trust Me, Men… It’s Not Us!
By Mark C. McCann Recently, I attended a series of Christian talks on the “Gifts of the Holy Spirit” given at a local Protestant church. I thought it would be good to understand more clearly the evangelical point of view on the subject of gifts and how it compared to Catholic teaching. As I listened to the speaker offer his opinions on the subject, I was called to consider the Spirit behind those gifts and the role he plays in guiding the Church. One thing Catholics have is an anchor to the teaching and traditions of the Church that have been passed down t...

Respect Life Month Although we must cherish, protect, and defend human life year-round, the Catholic Church in the United States sets aside each October as Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between.
