New on the site today is an article by Charles J. Chaput, the newly designated leader of Philadelphia’s Catholics. If you haven’t seen it already, you can read it here . It’s a follow-up to an article last week on the same topic, which you can find here .
I’ve spent much of the day reading through Chaput’s contributions to the magazine. They are pieces animated by love and loyalty, the pastoral concern of a bishop and the patriotic commitment of a faithful citizen. Here’s a sampling:
Violent Video Games and the Rights of Parents , July 2011
The American Experience of Religious Liberty , March 2011
Misunderstanding Benedict XVI , November 2010
Catholics and the Next America , September 2010
Health Care Reform and ‘Catholic’ Witness , March 2010
Catholics, Health Care, and the Senate’s Bad Bill , March 2010
St. Paul in the Public Square , July 2009
When I Campaigned for Bobby Kennedy , June 2008
The Role of the Priest in the Public Square , April 2008
Education and Our Witness to Christ , September 2007
Conscience, Courage, and Down Syndrome , September 2007
Suing the Church , May 2006
You should also look at Chaput’s excellent articles at Public Discourse and his interview with R.R. Reno from October 2009. All in all, a wealth of insight from one of the Church’s most inspiring pastors. There’s much here to read and study as we celebrate this happy news.
