Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: The Shape of Things to Come

The novel is massive, turgid, rambling, and in the end, mind-numbing.  Both works imagine a future world-war that drags on catastrophically for decades, decimates the population, unleashes a terrifying plague, and results in the collapse of civilization and the rise of petty warlords.

Columna del Arzobispo Chaput: La forma de lo que vendrá

Wells (d. 1946), The War of the Worlds (La guerra de los mundos) y The Time Machine (La máquina del tiempo). Ambas fueron producidas dos veces como películas; ambas hacen grandes lectura […]

Statement of Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. on the 50th Anniversary of the Assassination of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.

He was a man of civility, nonviolence, intelligence, and respect for his opponents; but also a man with a tireless zeal for justice, inspired and directed by his Christian faith.

Archbishop Chaput’s Weekly Column: A Lesson for Holy Week

These few remaining days before Easter are the most sacred time of every year.  I began writing this column to explain what the word “holy” in Holy Week means.  But actions often speak and teach more loudly than words. On Friday, March 23, an Islamist gunman in southern France attacked a supermarket.  A jihadist loyal […]
