When it comes to the use of military force, Americans tend to be in two camps: those who want it to defeat our enemies and those who oppose it.
Faith and Justice
Faith and Justice: A journalist has some failings he'd like to get off his chest, so he goes to see a priest for confession.
Faith and Justice: The news around the world is tragic and depressing. Our choices are: do nothing, use diplomacy, impose sanctions, or intervene militarily. Are there other options?
Faith and Justice: On immigration, the bishops, unlike politicians, show their concern for the poor and their clear attention to the root causes of the crisis.
Faith and Justice: Watching the U.S. Catholic bishops and the Obama administration fight each other has been a depressing experience. The two are natural allies on many issues.
Faith and Justice: The church has had problems with finances since Jesus appointed Judas to take care of the purse. Will the recent reforms of the Vatican bank solve things?
Faith and Justice: The work of reforming the Roman Curia is not easy, but it is going well, two members of the Council of Cardinals say.
Faith and Justice: The bishops are celebrating this decision as a victory for religious freedom, but it may be used against them by lower courts.
Faith and Justice: There is little beautiful or inspiring in the new instrumentum laboris. If married life is as boring and joyless as this document, I am glad I am celibate.
Faith and Justice: The goal of the White House order is laudable, but it remains to be seen how the bishops and the church will handle it.
