ARCHBISHOP CHAPUT’S WEEKLY COLUMN: SEX, SANITY, AND BELIEFS THAT ‘LIVE LOUDLY’ WITHIN US

On Tuesday, August 29, a group of prominent evangelical scholars and pastors – including respected public voices like Russell Moore — issued the “Nashville Statement.”  It’s worth reading in the original, rather than reading about it.

Columna del arzobispo Chaput: sexo, cordura, y creencias que ‘viven fuertemente’ en nosotros

El martes, 29 de agosto, un grupo de prominentes eruditos evangélicos y pastores –incluyendo respetadas voces públicas como Russell Moore, emitió el «Nashville Statement» (declaración de Nashville). Vale la pena leer el original, en lugar de leer acerca de él.

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.

Columna del Arzobispo Chaput: la verdad, y nada más

ARCHBISHOP CHAPUT’S WEEKLY COLUMN: THE EPIDEMIC AND ITS CURE

The reason the Church names anger as one of the seven “deadly” sins is because it’s simultaneously so poisonous, so delicious, and so addictive.  Anger congeals quite comfortably into hatred.

Columna del Arzorbispo Chaput: la epidemia y su cura

La razón por la que la Iglesia nombra la ira como uno de los siete pecados «mortales» es porque al mismo tiempo es tan venenosa, tan deliciosa y tan adictiva. La ira se convierte muy cómodamente en odio.

STATEMENT OF ARCHBISHOP CHARLES J. CHAPUT, O.F.M. CAP. REGARDING RACIAL VIOLENCE IN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA

Racism is a poison of the soul. It’s the ugly, original sin of our country, an illness that has never fully healed. Blending it with the Nazi salute, the relic of a regime that murdered millions, compounds the obscenity. Thus the wave of public anger about white nationalist events in Charlottesville this weekend is well warranted. We especially need to pray for those injured in the violence.

DECLARACIÓN DEL ARZOBISPO CHARLES J. CHAPUT, O.F.M. CAP. CON RESPECTO A LA VIOLENCIA RACIAL EN CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA

El racismo es un veneno del alma. Es feo, el pecado original de nuestro país, una enfermedad que nunca se ha curado. Mezclado con el saludo nazi, la reliquia de un régimen que asesinó a millones, agrava la obscenidad. Por lo tanto la ola de enojo público sobre los eventos nacionalistas blancos en Charlottesville este […]

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: A Moment for Women in the New Evangelization

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: “A Moment for Women in the New Evangelization”
When an event sells out five weeks in advance with 300 people on a waiting list, it’s safe to conclude a few things. First, the event matters. Second, it’s meeting a serious need. Third, the topic greatly interests its intended audience.
