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…

This 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…
This morning I received the following email request from Fr. Benedict Groeschel’s community, the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. They have asked for special prayers, through the intercession of Venerable Solanus Casey, for his recovery and healing. I hope that you will join me in praying.
It was my pleasure recently to host a live recording of Women of Grace from EWTN’s Annual Family Celebration. It was awesome and I can’t begin to tell you what a thrill it was for me to collaborate with such excellent representatives of womanhood and authentic femininity. Our fabulous guests included Teresa Tomeo and Janet Morana (Co-hosts of “The Catholic View for Women” and more), EWTN Rome Bureau Chief Joan Lewis, Barbara McGuigan (“The Good Fight”), Joy Pinto (“Jim & Joy Pinto”), Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle (“Everyday Blessings for Catholic Moms”), Joanna Bogle (“Feast & Seasons” and more), and “Women of Grace” Board Members Kathy Mathieson and Catholic journalist Mary Jo Anderson.

May the abundant life of Jesus Christ be yours and may God bless you!
