Life Imitates Art

I've always felt that evolution is so fascinating to its friends and foes alike, not only because it has real explanatory power for certain aspects of why organisms act like they do and are built like they are, but even more because evolution embodies one of the great mythic stories of the modern age. There is something enormously attractive about the plucky hero who overcomes various forces all bent on his annihilation, only to survive and prosper and see his children grow fruitful and multiply ("All dinosaurs from the enormous Brachiosaurs to the terrifying Tyrannosaurs trace their origins back to small bird-like reptiles like Coelophysis."). It's a great first act!

Equally great is the...READ MORE

Why is the US Suicide Rate Skyrocketing?

Something is wrong in our country. Very wrong. I think we all feel it and know it.

My thirteen year old daughter noticed something the other day. We were stopped at a traffic light on the way to school and she looked around at the other drivers and to be honest they all looked pretty miserable. One woman was crying. Another man had his head in his hand. The other was just staring ahead rather hopelessly. Maybe we were just seeing them all at a bad moment (it was morning) but I don't know. We live in a country with a quality of life which is the envy of the world in many ways. So many of us have cars, cable, and food in the refrigerator. And yet a report just came out that suicide rates are...READ MORE

Neglected for Decades, Here's St. Faustina's Original Divine Mercy Image

What do Hot Pockets, Harry Connick Jr. and Divine Mercy Have in Common?

04/24/2016 Comments (19)

While many pilgrims to World Youth Day will make their way to St. Faustina’s convent in Krakow, there is another image that predates the well-known one hanging on the convent church wall.

I caught up with film director Daniel diSilva to talk about his movie “The Original Image of Divine Mercy” that features the original image, the mystery around it and its theological significance. 

The film features a broad range of theological experts on Divine Mercy including Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz, archbishop of Kraków, Bishop Robert Barron, auxiliary bishop of Los Angeles, Fr. Dwight Longenecker and papal biographer George Weigel. Comedian Jim Gaffigan and singer, songwriter Harry Connick Jr....READ MORE

Where Did You Go, Michelangelo? The Problem With Ugly Churches

How is it that the oldest churches in Christendom—the four major basilicas of Rome (St. Peter’s, St. Paul’s Outside the Walls, St. John Lateran, St. Mary Major), Notre Dame in Paris, Chartres—all seem timeless, undated almost? That is, if you visited the Cathedral at Rheims or San Marco in Venice or the Duomo in Milan or even some of the finest Minor Basilicas in America (Our Lady of Victory in South Buffalo, Sacred Heart at University of Notre Dame), you’d be hard-pressed to say, “Hey! I know this Church was built in [date]!” without consulting a guide book.

By contrast, it’s not hard to figure out when a post-Vatican II church was built. There seemed to be a time, in those heady days...READ MORE
