In 2017, Antonio Spadaro SJ, editor of La Civiltà Cattolica, and Presbyterian pastor Marcelo Figueroa, editor of the Argentinian edition of L’Osservatore Romano, co-wrote an article on America’s culture wars titled “Evangelical Fundamentalism and Catholic Integralism: A Surprising Ecumenism.” The article provoked widespread debate, but today it seems even more...

There is arguably no papal document since the end of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) that has mapped out such a radical reform of Church governance, life and mission as Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Evangelii gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel). It is the blueprint for what the pope’s Secretary... Continue reading

When I learned quite recently that Pope Francis is such a fan of the work of the Italian philosopher Gianni Vattimo that he called him one day to congratulate him on his latest book, I was led to give more attention to Vattimo’s prescription for ecclesial health, that what the... Continue reading

We are living in an enormously traumatic moment in the life of the church, a moment that at its core has been produced by the sin of a church that is called in its every essence to reflect holiness to the world. At every level in the life of the... Continue reading

The results of the recent Pennsylvania grand jury report on clergy sexual abuse are as stark as they are staggering. They may also be surprising, because while we have long wrung our hands over the tragedy of priestly abuse, seeing the report’s statistics in aggregate may be the first time... Continue reading

In 2000, Monsignor David Malloy left his work in the papal household and returned to the United States to become an associate general secretary at the U.S. bishops’ conference. In 2006, he was elected general secretary, defeating Monsignor John Strynkowski of Brooklyn. In 2010, then-Archbishop Timothy Dolan was elected President... Continue reading

One could be forgiven for thinking that it has never been as bad as this—church authority assailed from within and from without, the episcopate in so many jurisdictions discredited, the papacy under siege from schismatic factions, the non-Catholic world appalled by a level of corruption the magnitude of which seems...

I have been trying to keep myself busy this summer, but I still find myself wishing students were back on campus. In any event, we received some great news this week. The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education’s Board of Commissioners granted accreditation to the College of Nursing’s doctor of nursing... Continue reading

I had never gone overseas before, let alone leave the East Coast; so I knew from the start that flying to Europe was going to be quite the experience. From playing Charades with an Albanian man, to having our flight cancelled, to finding creative ways to have my phone charged... Continue reading

We have become accustomed to the current political reality in the United States whereby previously seasoned diplomats, civil servants, cabinet officials and various factotums and underlings, to say nothing of supernumeraries, are dispatched at a whim, cast into the dark and unknown. This is not generally the case with the... Continue reading

Most everyone on the planet knows something about the Star Wars saga. The original series that began in medias res—then the sequels and prequels that continue to feed our love of the “story”— speak to the visceral human longing for the epic narrative. Theologians have mined the saga for its... Continue reading

SHU in Luxembourg celebrated its 25th anniversary this week, and I had the pleasure of participating in the festivities.

It was U.S. President Ronald Reagan who got serious about the Holy See. Persuaded, like his admiring ally British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, that the papacy of John Paul II was going to be critical to the dismantling of Soviet hegemony, he upgraded the status of the U.S. representative to...
