Crossroads invites you to New York Encounter, an annual four-day public cultural festival that intends to offer to a large audience opportunities for education, dialogue and friendship through conferences, artistic performances, and exhibits. Friday, January 14, 2011 7:00 pm |...

The State of Marriage


Ross Douthat, over at the NY Times has an interesting article on the state of marriage in the modern American cultural context. I have seen this before, in other places, and I've been thinking about it for a while. It...

Why Haiti?


Msgr. Albacete had an interesting article in America Magazine's online blog on the question of suffering in front of a Tragedy like Haiti. I should have added this earlier, but I forgot I had a blog . . . which...

She's no Joycelyn Elders


Rocco has some great information on the nomination of Dr. Regina Benjamin as President Barack Obama's pick as the new Surgeon General. A Catholic and a longtime advocate of health care for the rural poor, Dr. Benjamin has also served...

The Audacity of the Pope


In my opinion, the most interesting "conservative" writer on the scene today is the former senior editor of The Atlantic and the NY Times' new conservative editorialist Ross Douthat. At 29, he's also the youngest. In his latest column, Douthat...

Doing the Nasty


Nasty job of theological critique, that is, with particular respect paid to certain teachers' views on the theology of the body. This has been one of those "insiders" arguments for about 11 years, pretty much ever since Christopher West graduated...

Riding the Wave . . .


Honolulu, HI has held its (and presumably the world's) first e-lection. In its recent "neighborhood council" elections, residents of Honolulu were invited to vote through a website or on the phone. I'll set aside the problematic nature of its accuracy...

Hope FOR Obama


In the wake of the Notre Dame events, one must wonder, is there any hope that can emerge from the Obama-Notre Dame fiasco? Many are saying "No," In fact, Bishop Finn of Kansas seems to think that all possibility of...

Truth & Power


Daniel Philpott, a political science professor at Notre Dame, writes movingly of the events of last Sunday, when the University of Notre Dame hosted President Barack Obama as it's commencement speaker. I have included a portion of the text below,...



Sarah Palin's Choice


My friend Sharon Mollerus has written a very interesting article in on the debate (which I was completely unaware of) that surrounded some comments made by Sarah Palin at a recent Right to Life dinner in Evansville (which the...

Glendon Will Not Accept the Laetare Medal


It's too bad for Notre Dame, really. I am moved by Prof. Glendon's witness. This was her decision to make and I'm glad that she is doing this as a way to be faithful to the Church. I think this...

Taking A Step


Our visitor, Giorgio Vittadini, very much wants all of our communities to hold an assembly, as soon as possible, on the Notre Dame flier and the answers of Fr. Carron to questions posed to him on Sunday morning at our...

D'Arcy is a Bad-Ass


I love what Bishop D'Arcy is saying these days. In response to the Notre Dame-Obama kerfuffle, I am more and more impressed by how Bishop John D'Arcy is handling these things. I know the man personally. I have great esteem...

3 at Last Count


The ex-bishop, kinda-communist, President of Paraguay Fernando Lugo has fathered 3 kids at last count. I love a chance to play a little Diana Ross.

Notre Dame and Obama: A Witness to an Event


I seem to be all things Notre Dame and Obama lately. Oh well. I wanted to share one more, which is the personal account of Paolo Carozza, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Notre Dame, who led, with...

CLU at Notre Dame: The New Commencement Begins


The Observer, the student newspaper of the University of Notre Dame had a front page article on an assembly (discussion) of the well-commented judgment I posted below which the University students of Communion and Liberation wrote in response to President...

Y Tu Mama Tambien! And in all things, Charity.


I am not inclined to agree with Deal Hudson in general, but I think he writes a good essay. I'm not advocating that we should just try to "play nice" with each other. I don't really care about that and,...
