The only sacramental I continued to wear was my brown scapular.

 “Too many Catholics can’t articulate why the State should not redefine marriage,” Horn said. “And since the popular culture has forsaken...

In the Gospels, the most famous miracle associated with Jesus—other than the Resurrection—is the Feeding of the Five Thousand. It’s recorded in all four Gospels.

But Matthew and Mark record an additional, similar miracle, known as the Feeding of the Four Thousand. The numbers connected with this miracle are a little different (four thousand people are fed, they use seven loaves and “a few small fish,” and they pick up seven baskets of leftovers...
