The Chaplain Is In

Fr. Vincent Serpa answers:

After my Episcopalian father died, half of his ashes were buried in one location and half in another location -- was this okay?

I have been in a custody battle with my ex-wife for my daughter -- am I right to call this a spiritual battle? 

Why do the bishops not come down harder on priests who don't follow their orders?

My daughter refuses to go to Mass and does things that I don't want my younger daughter subjected to -- how do I deal with this?

How do I respond to people who are against organized religion, especially when their oppositions involve the sex scandals?

Which is better: to marry a Catholic with whom you don't get along or a non-Catholic with whom you do get along?

When my Protestant dad passes away, is it okay to have a Catholic Mass said for him?

Do you have any advice on how to get back into my spiritual life?

My husband is buried in a non-Catholic cemetery, and my plot is next to him -- should I not be buried there?

How do I caution people about individuals like Joel Osteen, whose messages won't bring them to the ultimate truth?
