College freshmen and their parents choose Catholic institutions of higher education not only for the schools’ ability to impart and strengthen the Catholic faith, but also on the quality of the schools’ academic offerings. One thing that truly sets Catholic colleges and universities apart is that they often offer courses not found anywhere else.

Catholicism informs nearly every topic, thus allowing Catholic colleges and universities the opportunity to teach in ways that show how faith intersects with everything from leadership to architecture.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama on Feb. 10 confirmed that his administration was offering an “accommodation” to religious groups opposed to a controversial federal rule requiring private health plans to provide contraception and abortion services.

As reported in the media, church-affiliated employers would not have to directly cover those services; instead, their insurance plans would cover them.

The announcement prompted an expression of gratitude from Daughter of Charity Sister Carol Keehan, the president and CEO of the Catholic Health Association, and a polite, but wary response from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which said they needed to study the proposed...READ MORE

NAPLES, Fla. — “If you want to get scoffed at, go to the halls of Congress and say, ‘I believe in abstinence,’” former President George W. Bush said recently.

But he wasn’t getting scoffed at here. Far from it. The 43rd president of the United States received a standing ovation at a lunchtime gathering during the annual Legatus Summit in Naples, Fla.

Bush headlined the international gathering of Legatus members, addressing the convention by drawing from his two terms in the White House.

The former president also addressed the controversial “contraceptive mandate” issued by the federal Department of Health and Human Services. Speaking Feb. 4, as Catholic-led protests of the Obama...READ MORE

Every year, countless articles and TV spots spring up advising lovers on how to find the ideal gift for their Valentines. Most of these are really just advertising in a not-very-subtle disguise, but even those that aren’t tend to cast the net into the shallows. They assume that the gift giver is looking to present his beloved with a modestly thoughtful gift that will serve to placate the idols of Romance for another year: a gift which can be procured during lunch hour and which says, “Please don’t divorce me for another 365 days.”

Fair enough. People are busy, and in a good marriage, a Valentine’s gift is often just a small, thoughtful formality, like a good-morning kiss as you leave the...READ MORE

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — When filmmakers Jon and Andrew Erwin tackled October Baby, they knew that their movie was imitating life. The film is loosely based on the life of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen.

What they didn’t know is that their art was imitating life in more ways than one, through the story of one of the film’s actresses.

The part road-trip, part-romance drama follows the journey of Hannah, a college freshman who learns that she was adopted and the survivor of a failed abortion attempt. She sets out to find her birth mother and ends up learning a lesson about forgiveness. The film is being distributed by Sony’s Provident Films and opens in theaters nationwide March 23. Among its...READ MORE
