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)

Meet the students who rock the March for Life every year
