The future of the Church

Michael Coren

I speak a great deal at Catholic and pro-life venues in Canada, the United States, and Britain. It’s perhaps the aspect of my professional life that gives me most pleasure—travel, meeting people, seeing the Church and the various moral struggles through the eyes and experience of others. Most of the men and women I meet are extraordinarily impressive, even inspiring. But there is—as they say—always one. Always one person who attends only to be offended and annoyed. And in a Toronto church ... (Continue reading)

Most years, the last week of Advent finds my family scrambling to finish the Christmas preparations.

For the past few years, I have given a few family members knitted presents. I usually start Christmas knitting in early November, but since November was pretty ... (Continue reading)

“This is MY Body—But I Don’t Want It!”

From the CCBR blog. Fellow feminists, In case you haven't noticed, women (or "womyn," if you prefer) are immensely powerful. And I'm not just talking "Lady Macbeth" meets "Charlie's Angels." While there is something to be said about feminine beauty and strength, our power lies in the very thing that makes us fundamentally different from men. In case you need a reminder, it's that women have the extraordinary ability to help create and facilitate the development of another human being—inside her ... (Continue reading)
