Vivir el Año de la Misericordia

Authored by Edward Sri, STD in Issue #2.1 of The Catechetical Review

In 1990, Pope John... Read more
Curriculum from a Catholic Worldview
By R. Jared Staudt
We can take for granted the fact that the Catholic Church runs a large number of schools throughout the world. It is clear that the Church must offer religious education, but why does the Church teach math, gym class, science, literature, and history? Wouldn’t it just be easier if the Church focused more narrowly on the supernatural; why also... Read more
