OnePeterFive exists as a place to begin rebuilding the Catholic ethos. We’re not just here to zero in on the problems, but to offer concrete solutions. We want to restore Catholic culture, rebuild the Church as a patron of the arts, reinvigorate the family and the traditions that keep it strong, reform the liturgy, support vocations, dust off the old devotions and make them relevant again. We want to help infuse the world with beautiful music, inspiring art, families that pray together, parishes centered around the Eucharist, strong communities, and a new generation of Catholics who can effectively bring the Gospel message to a world hostile to that message.

“A site of film appreciation, information and criticism informed by Christian faith” was how I first described Decent Films back in 2000. I wrote then, and write now, out of an abiding love of good movies, good writing and good conversation. I write as a Catholic Christian, with the hope of addressing interested readers of my own faith, of other faiths and of none. I have learned and benefitted a great deal from critics and other writers with outlooks different from my own, and my work is offered in that spirit.

My name is Jimmy Akin, and I am your blog host.

I was born in Texas and grew up nominally Protestant. But at age 20 I experienced a profound conversion to Christ. I planned on becoming a Protestant pastor or seminary professor, and I started an intensive study of the Bible. The thing was, the more he immersed myself in Scripture, the more I found it to support the Catholic faith. Eventually, I had to become Catholic, which I did in 1992. My conversion story, “A Triumph and a Tragedy,” is published in the book Surprised By Truth.

These days, I am a Senior Apologist at Catholic Answers, a member on the Catholic Answers Speakers Bureau, a weekly guest on the global radio program “Catholic Answers Live,” a contributor to Catholic Answers Magazine, and the author of more publications than you can shake a stick at. My books include The Fathers Know Best, Mass Revision, and The Salvation Controversy. I hope you’ll check them out!

IGNITUM TODAY is a website co-founded by Tito Edwards and Stacy Trasancos in 2011 for young adults who wanted to evangelize through writing. Lots of people were starting blogs, the blog-boom if you will, and we wanted to offer a platform for bloggers to unite and gain exposure.

We now have a team of volunteer editors to help oversee publication. Nothing is worth doing if it does not lead to Heaven, and every new Catholic writer that adds a voice to the communion of the faithful makes the Catholic presence that much more luminous and outstanding in the world.

In the early 1900s a bankrupt publisher in Huntington, Ind. offered young Father John Noll a printing press for a single dollar.

Who would have ever thought what would come from this simple $1 investment to a local parish priest: a huge Catholic publishing and offertory solutions enterprise that not only survived but has thrived for over 100 years!

Father Noll's investment in the printing press and the responsibility that came with it was an act of radical trust in God; trust that a parish priest in a small town in a small state could launch such an enterprise and succeed.

In the thirteenth century, St. Thomas Aquinas wrote that…

"No man is able of himself to grasp the supreme good of eternal life; he needs divine help. Hence, there is here a two-fold object, the eternal life we hope for, and the divine help we hope for."

In this second decade of the twenty-first century, the divine help is what we Americans need most of all.

Hope is not empty optimism springing from a naive confidence that the future will necessarily be better than the past. Hope and trust are the premise of responsible activity and are nurtured in that inner sanctuary of conscience where ‘man is alone with God’ and he thus perceives that he is not alone amid the enigmas of existence, for he is surrounded by the love of the Creator!

The opinions expressed by our authors and those providing comments are theirs alone. As such, they do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Catholic Journal or its editors. We do, however, reserve the right to exclude essays and comments that are deemed to be objectionable, inappropriate, or lacking in charity.

Crisis has conceived its mission around the Holy Father’s insights. Each day, Crisis will remind countless Catholics of their heritage, give them the confidence to defend the common good, a just society, the teachings the Church, the family, the dignity of work and the sanctity of life. Our authors hope to help the new laity (and clerical readers) form both their intellect and their spirituality in a scholarly, but accessible, way.

Crisis will analyze, discuss, and propose—from a variety of prudential positions— sane solutions to social and economic problems. We hope not merely to arm our readers with the arguments necessary for navigating the ideological (and theological) minefields of the day, but to do so by proceeding into the temporal order with charity and humility. There is seldom a single Catholic solution to the challenges that beset us.

We hope that the staff of Crisis continue to display all the doggedness and the fidelity of the original editorial architects and contributors of this magazine. Our Catholic Faith and our society demand no less.

St. Paul Street Evangelization (SPSE) is a grassroots, non-profit organization, dedicated to responding to the mandate of Jesus to preach the Gospel to all nations by taking the Catholic Faith to the streets. Christ’s call to evangelize was made to every Catholic Christian, and the Second Vatican Council reiterated this need, urging each of the baptized to bring the Gospel, found fully in the Catholic Church, to a culture that has largely reverted to paganism. As an on-the-street Catholic evangelization organization, St. Paul Street Evangelization provides an avenue for people to share the Person of Jesus Christ and the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith with a hungry culture.
