By Dr. Jeff Mirus ( bio – articles – email ) | Jun 21, 2022 Sadly for Catholics today, most of us have friends or family members who have chosen to leave the Catholic Church and worship instead at a Protestant church of some sort, or no church at all. By far the most common cause of this is marriage issues. Catholics may marry outside the Church to escape a failed marriage which has no...

We march and fight under the banner of Jesus Christ…

In St. Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises, the training manual of authentic Jesuit spirituality and the most influential retreat program in the history of the Church, the founder of the Society of Jesus has us meditate on “Two Standards” — two flags or military banners — under one of which we must choose to march and fight.

Why the U.S. military is listening to shrimp…

Whale skeletons stand guard around the coastline of Fuerteventura in the Canary Islands, a stark reminder of the damaging effects of military sonar. Sonar from ships and submarines is thought to be one of the contributing factors to whale strandings, confusing the whales’ own sonar and casuing them to beach themselves on the shore. This whale-unfriendly technology, however, may soon have a r...

10 musical masterpieces: An entry point into classical music…

Classical music speaks to us, even if much of it is wordless. It communicates to us, nonetheless, through its powerful and complex melody, rhythm, and harmony, employing a beautiful and mathematical language that enchants, agitates at times, inspires, sooths, and stimulates. In contrast to the immediately pleasing and entertaining pop music, classical music opens up a new world of ideas and imagin...

The Eucharistic Revival, big news, and the Avs…

Hey everybody, The U.S. Church’s Eucharistic Revival has officially begun, and you’re reading The Tuesday Pillar Post.

Hello. My name is Tony, and I am a restorationist…..

Hello. My name is Tony. I am a restorationist. I wasn’t always this way. I grew up in the 1960s and the 1970s, and we all took for granted everything the priests and bishops said we had to do according to the directions of the Second Vatican Council. None of us had read the documents, but we figured that our leaders had, and we obeyed. They counted on it. When our pastor removed the marble communi...

Intentional or not, the Pope just offered a valuable conclave tip on abuse baggage…

Listen to this story: ROME – Even before Pope Francis stages his latest consistory on Aug. 27, inducting 20 new members into the Catholic Church’s most exclusive club, the event has managed to make news – in this case, not so much for the new cardinals who’ll be there, but the one erstwhile cardinal-designate who won’t. This past Thursday, the bishops’ conference of Belgium announced that the 80-y...

Sanity returns to transgender madness after Lia Thomas’ ban by FINA…

Finally, sanity prevailed in the world of women’s sports.  Swimming’s world governing body, FINA, announced a ban Sunday on biological men competing in women’s events, unless they had “transitioned” before the age of 12.  In other words, transgender athletes who have experienced the enduring competitive advantages of a male puberty flooded with testosterone, such as greater muscle mass, ...
