Cardinal Mahony's Legacy: L.A. Archdiocese Docs Show Child Sex Abuse Coverup

A question on the minds of a lot of Catholics and non-Catholics alike is why Cardinal Roger Mahony has not faced criminal prosecution, but it's not one that the Vatican can answer. Ultimately, it lies with the Los Angeles County district attorney and the U.S. attorney's office, both of which conducted investigations into allegations that Mahony covered up child abuse accusations and sheltered accused perpetrators in the Los Angeles Archdiocese.

Russell Crowe Wants Pope Francis to Screen 'Noah'

When the Catholic Church has approved of something printed about it or the Faith, the book or document bears a stamp that reads Nihil Obstat, a Latin phrase indicating "nothing stands in the way" of it being published, along with the Imprimatur of the local bishop, which means "let it be printed."

Vatican Takes Rolling Stone to Task for Errors in Pope Francis Profile

Imagine, on Super Bowl Sunday, if a sports reporter piped up and said things like, "Hey, since it's called football, can you touch the ball?" or "Hey, what's with the blocking and tackling? That's kind of mean," or "Hey, touchdowns, those are important, right?" No one would tolerate a sports reporter that showed that level of ignorance about a subject he's chosen to address, but when it comes to the Catholic Church in general and the pope in particular, the under-informed just let their freak flag fly.

Bones of Contention: Catholic Burials for the Remains of Kings Richard III and Alfred?

As the Church of England, known popularly as the Anglican Church – along with its American cousin, the Episcopal Church – struggles to find its place while rapidly incorporating 21st Century social mores and cultural shifts into its flexible theology, there's a temptation to think of England and her national church as one.

Pope Francis and Pop Culture

Hollywood may not care much for Christianity or for actual Christians, but it loves the Roman Catholic Church – and it's not an affair that began with the election of Pope Francis in March 2013. Jan 19, 2014 6:10 AM PT

Author Michael Coren on Pope Francis, Orthodoxy, and 'The Future of Catholicism'

Michael Coren didn't have to be Catholic. Actually, he's had several opportunities to walk away from the enterprise altogether. Born to a Jewish cab-driver father in Essex, England, in January 1959, he became a Roman Catholic in his 20s while still living in the U.K. A talk show host and author of fifteen books, Coren took time to answer some questions from Breitbart News on his views and prognostications.

Dale Ahlquist on G.K. Chesterton, Pope Francis

In 1996, writer, editor, and speaker Dale Ahlquist founded the American Chesterton Society, which is devoted to promoting interest in 20th-century English author, journalist, dramatist, biographer, and lay theologian G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936). The Baptist Ahlquist was received into the Roman Catholic Church the next year, following the lead of the object of his admiration, who had traveled from Anglicanism through Unitarianism (and various other -isms) before converting to Catholicism in 1922.

Has Pope Francis' Message Been Lost in Translation?

Argentine-born Pope Francis wrote the newly released Evangelii Gadium ("The Joy of the Gospel") in his native Spanish, which may help to answer some thorny questions being raised about the English translation of the pontiff's first solo official document (the recent encyclical, Lumen Fidei, or "The Light of Faith," was largely the work of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI).

Pope Francis, Money, the Mafia and the Man With No Face

In an interview with CNN last week, Italian anti-Mafia prosecutor Nicola Gratteri warned that Pope Francis' efforts to reform the scandal-plagued Institute for the Works of Religion (IOR), aka the "Vatican bank"--including the Nov. 18 release of a Motu Proprio outlining new regulations for the Vatican's Financial Intelligence Authority--may put him in peril from mobsters.
