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.
