To Attend, or Not to Attend

The following post is from the Catholic Answers website.  I mentioned it on the Women of Grace Live radio program today and am posting it here for those who have been struggling with this issue.

I have been an apologist for Catholic Answers since 2003. When people find out how long I’ve been with Catholic Answers, they sometimes ask, “What is the most-asked question you receive?” That’s easy: Can I go to this wedding? The question has been asked so often, in fact, that in 2007 I created a checklist for laypeople to use to decide for themselves if they could go to a particular wedding. In the years since, that checklist has become one of the most-viewed apologist Q&A’s on the Catholic Answers Forums, with over 75,000 views. Read the rest…

Remembering Helen Hull Hitchcock, ‘a true daughter of God’

HHHrgb1This week, the EWTN family pays tribute to Helen Hull Hitchcock, a true daughter of God and defender of Catholic faith and family.  She was a pioneer in the renewal of the sacred liturgy and reclaiming women’s authentic role in the Church.

In October of 2003,  I had the great privilege of interviewing her about Pope John Paul II’s then new encyclical Ecclesia Dei, which sought to correct many of the liturgical abuses that were taking place at that time.  You can watch our interview here. Read the rest…
