This week in Catholic news: Doritos, #ashtag, Mexico, Beards (2/13)

1. The Super Bowl had two ads about babies, instantly putting some pro-choice organizations up in arms. We took a closer look at the story behind the Doritos loving baby who made an, um, emergency exit. And the ad about the Super Bowl babies most likely made for some awkward conversations between children and their […]

#WeirdQuestionstoaskGod

There have been so many times in my life when, finding myself up against an impossible question, I’ve said to my friends: “That’s something I’m going to ask God when I get to heaven.” #WeirdQuestionstoaskGod is trending on Twitter this afternoon, and apparently a lot of people have stuff to ask the Big Guy. Here are some of our favorites: […]

NEW YORK -- Marines from 6th Communications Battalion, Marine Forces Reserve, marched in the annual New York Veterans Day parade, here, Nov. 11. This year marks the 92st Anniversary of The New York City Veterans Day Parade. The parade is hosted by the United War Veterans Council, Inc. on behalf of the City of New York. It is the oldest and largest of its kind in the nation. Since November 11, 1919, the parade has provided an opportunity for Americans and International visitors to honor those who have served in the nation’s largest city. Sgt. Dakota Meyer, the recently awarded Marine Medal of Honor recipient, rode in the parade. Major Gen. Melvin Spiese, Deputy Commanding General, I Marine Expeditionary Force, represented the Marine Corps as one of the reviewing officials of the parade. (Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Randall A.

Expanding the draft? What Catholics should question

By: Adelaide Mena Even though I lost any dependent status a few years ago, I think of myself as a military “brat” through and through. I was born on a base, baptized in a military chapel, grew up surrounded by military families and bases, and I didn’t stop falling asleep to the sound of jet planes […]

How the CDC accidentally united the nation’s women, and other Catholic news you may have missed (2/5)

This week in Catholic news: Outrage over new CDC announcement hilariously unites women across political spectrums:   It was probably hard to miss at least some of the news about the CDC’s latest recommendation, which is essentially that all women of childbearing age who have a snowball’s chance in Arizona of getting pregnant should refrain from alcohol […]

The Super Bowl is pro-life!

Kind of, anyway…. Turns out, the city that wins the Big Game usually sees a boom in births 9 months later. There’s even an NFL commercial featuring a song performed by Super Bowl babies from years past (Disclaimer: If the word ‘canoodle’ shocks you, skip the video). Of course, the Super Bowl is usually about […]

A song for St. Brigid and the “Lake of Beer”

“I should like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings. I should like the angels of Heaven to be drinking it through time eternal.” While that might not exactly sound like a quote from a Catholic nun, it is actually an excerpt from a poem attributed to St. Brigid, one of three […]

Snow altars and Leonardo DiCaprio, Bless the Lord: This week in Catholic news (1/29)

Catholic news you may have missed during the week: 1. Last Saturday, I jokingly texted a friend of mine chaperoning the March for Life, asking if he was stuck on a bus in a snowdrift. He said: yes. (And I felt bad for joking.) So what do dozens of pro-life high school and college students do when […]

Meet the students who rock the March for Life every year

Every year they’re the life of the party at the national March for Life in Washington, D.C. If you’ve attended the march, you’ve no doubt noticed them – teenagers sporting yellow “LIFE” sweatshirts and carrying towers of yellow balloons which match the official Vatican colors. They wave Vatican flags, all jumping, dancing, drumming and chanting, […]

The Best Photos of the Historic Turnpike Mass of 2016!

By: ChurchPop As you may have heard, a Catholic pro-life student group going home after the March for Life got stuck on the highway due to heavy snows. With tons of time and not much to do, they did something incredible: they build an altar out of snow and had Mass on the side of […]
