George Weigel’s (Northern Hemisphere) Summer Reading List

As the Northern Hemisphere enters their warm, summer days, George Weigel has produced a reading list that anyone can enjoy, regardless of season.

Ticket to oblivion?

St John Henry Newman, among the church’s most brilliant modern converts, opposed himself above all else to one “great mischief.” As the October Synod approaches, we would do well to listen to the English saint’s warning…

Invoking John Paul the Great

The recent 10th anniversary Mass of St John Paul II’s canonisation was something of a “grand recapitulation” of the John Paul II years, writes George Weigel.

Dignitas Infinitas could’ve been stronger

The Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith’s new document on human dignity underscores the Catholic Church’s commitment to human dignity and defence of life from conception to natural death. It’s a good document, but George Weigel makes a few suggestions about how it could have been stronger

The good news is that the bad news isn’t all the...

Let’s try a different kind of Lenten fast before Easter, and celebrate the many signs of growth in the church instead of doom-mongering, writes George Weigel

Two lives that reveal the face of courage

Both Blessed Stanley Rother and Russian dissident Alexei Navalny exemplified the cardinal virtue of courage, which is also a gift of the Holy Spirit. Only one is officially a martyr, but that might change, writes George Weigel

George Weigel: America’s slide into terminal foreign policy unseriousness

With the world on the brink of chaos, the US Secretary of State is emailing diplomats about gender identity best practices.... What are America's priorities, asks George Weigel

Two years on, Ukraine is still unbroken

Ukraine remains unbroken after two years of devastating war. If only Americans were less susceptible to Russian propaganda, writes George Weigel
