I've been divorced for three years. Is there life for me in the Church after divorce? Can I receive the Eucharist, can I date, or do I have to give up on catholicism, etc?

My husband had a ruptured appendix Sunday night. Can you give me some words to take back to the hospital for him?

I am starting my discernment for the priesthood. What can I do to make this more fruitful?

Is there such a thing as a bad Catholic? I was having an intellectual discussion with some friends, not personally attacking them, but they took offence to the fact that I said they were “bad” Catholics.

I’m trying to turn a new leaf this Advent and forgive my sister-in-law who has persecuted me for years. I tried to reconcile with her but she is obstinate. Where do I go from here?

My wife cheated on me. Is that grounds for divorce?

What advice do I give my friend about his relationship with his girlfriend? She wants to break up and he wants to make it work. The issue is that they are cohabitating, so if I tell him to stay with her they continue to live in sin...

My daughter used to go to Church, but when she went through pre-cana the priest said she was a bad Catholic. It turned her away from the Church and she quit going regularly. Now she wants her children baptized, but the priest won’t baptize them. What does she need to do to have the children baptized?

I married outside the Church and I want to have my marriage blessed. I’ve heard that I can’t come back and my kids can’t be baptized. What can I do?

I am a newlywed and I believe 100% in the way the bible describes marriage. My husband feels guilty/responsible for taking care of his parents and siblings. What should I tell him now that we are our own family?

My cousin posted a picture from a liberal site that basically said Pope Francis is better than Benedict because he is simple. How do I defend Pope Benedict?

It bugs me that the devil can hear things. Should I not pray out loud? I don’t want him to know what I’m praying for.

I’m a godfather to my niece. My sister (the mother) did not let my niece have first communion. I’ve talked to my sister about it. How do I manage this without damaging my relationship with my sister?
