Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: On Anger, Grief, and the Future

The latest grand jury report is a bitterly painful text.  But rage risks wounding the innocent along with the guilty, and it rarely accomplishes anything good.

Columna del arzobispo Chaput: en ira, dolor, y el futuro

El último informe del gran jurado es un texto muy doloroso; pero la ira pone en riesgo herir al inocente junto con los culpables y rara vez logra nada bueno.

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: Katharine Drexel and the Gift of Hearing

In an age of relentless noise, silence is a treasure beyond calculation.  In silence we can think.  In silence we can make sense of a confusing and difficult time.  In silence, if we commit ourselves to truly listening, we can hear the quiet voice of God.

Columna del arzobispo Chaput: Katharine Drexel y el don de la audición

En una época de incesante ruido, el silencio es un tesoro que no se puede calcular. En el silencio podemos pensar; en el silencio podemos dar sentido a un tiempo confuso y difícil; en el silencio, si nos comprometemos a escuchar verdaderamente, podemos escuchar la voz silenciosa de Dios

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: Thoughts On The Synod: The Power Of Faith

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: Daughters of the King

The question of identity is at the center of the 2018 Catholic Women’s Conference this October. In choosing the theme “Daughters of the King,” the organizers have made a wise move. In a culture where the question of identity is everywhere, they’re inviting women to discover and embrace the one unshakable, permanent and lasting identity that they’ve been given from God: You are a daughter of the King of Heaven and Earth.

Columna del arzobispo Chaput: Hijas del Rey

La cuestión de la identidad está en el centro de la Conferencia de Mujeres Católicas 2018 de este mes de octubre. En la elección de la temática «Hijas del Rey», los organizadores han acertado. En una cultura donde la cuestión de la identidad está en todas partes, están invitando a las mujeres a descubrir y abrazar una identidad inalterable, permanente y duradera que han recibido de Dios: eres una hija del Rey de cielos y tierra.

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: A Great Nation, if we Act Accordingly

If we really want to “make America great again,” with a moral character that proves it, then the people who make and apply our laws need to act accordingly.
