Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: Respect Life 2017

Reverence for the sanctity of the human person starts with a defense of the unborn child.  The right to life is foundational.  Without it, all other rights and all other discussions of justice and human dignity are built on sand.

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: Sex, Sanity, and Beliefs That ‘Live Loudly’ Within Us

Archbishop Chaput’s Column: The Truth, And Nothing But

Over the Labor Day weekend I got a note from a friendly Catholic scholar who’s an expert in the history of religions.  She teaches at one of Europe’s large secular universities.  And while she doesn’t publicize her faith, neither does she hide it – a fact which does not always help her academic career.

Durante el fin de semana del Día del Trabajo recibí una nota de una amistosa erudita católica que es experta en la historia de las religiones.
