The Church in France has long been called the “eldest daughter of the Church,” but today there are challenges and crises for French Catholics in all directions. But there are also signs of hope and promise. This week on Register Radio we talk to Register Senior Editor Jonathan Liedl about his recent trip to France. And then, as the nation marks the anniversary of Roe v. Wade and the pro-life movement marches in Washington, DC, and around the country, we are joined by Lauretta Brown with an update on pro-life news and a look ahead to the Supreme Court’s decision on Dobbs v. Jackson.
‘EWTN Pro-Life Weekly’ has a new host. This week on Register Radio we welcome Prudence Robertson, a former spokesperson for Susan B. Anthony List. Then we have another Editors’ Corner on upcoming news and events.
As we look at 2021 in the rearview mirror one image continues to stand out: the powerful perseverance of the prolife movement. With the Mississippi 15-week abortion ban before the Supreme Court and the Texas heartbeat law facing opposition from the federal government, we saw what the pro-life movement is made of. And the story isn’t over — 2022 will continue to see the shift in the abortion policy landscape. Lauretta Brown joins us with a perspective on where we’ve been and where we’re going. Then we have an Editors’ Corner reflecting on international and other national highlights of 2021 as we continue our year in review coverage.
Happy New Year! At the start of 2022, take a moment to review the last year as we say goodbye to 2021.

Are you set to have the Best Christmas Ever? Even better, do you hope to give a gift that helps someone else have the Best Christmas Ever? Register staff writer Peter Jesserer Smith brings us a heartwarming story of how one parish in Minnesota generously helped a family and a community do just that. And we also look to Charles Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ to learn the importance of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Register Columnist John Grondelski guides us through this lesson.
The year 2021 may very well known as the “Year of the Parent.” Parents are asserting their rights as primary educators to their children — voicing their concerns at school board meetings and flexing their muscles in the voting booth.
What happens when your children go off to college? Who is helping them defend the truth and grow in faith?
What is gender ideology? Is it really being promoted to students at school? How can concerned parents, teachers, clergy and other Catholic leaders push back against the creep of gender ideology into the classroom? You can find answers to these questions and more on this episode of Religious Freedom Matters.
Equal protection under the law is a foundational principle of our Constitution and our civil rights laws. And the Church teaches the inherent dignity of every person. But as a nation, we struggle to live up to these ideals and truths. What is the best way to combat racism and promote principles of equality to the next generation?
American children spend roughly 33 hours a week at school. What goes on in the classroom directly shapes them and impacts their families. It also affects the future of the nation and the Church.
