Fr. Jack Collins, CSP, hits the streets of New York City’s scary Greenwich Village, asking young adults what they know about the origins of Halloween — how it began, why people wear costumes, and the two Catholic holidays surrounding All Hallow’s Eve.

The saints are our mentors and models who show us ways to live our faith. However, some of their stories can be terrifying and downright…spooky. Fr. Steve presents one of these spookier saintly stories as he tells the tale of Saint Christina the Astonishing –– a woman that some called mad, and some called holy. Watch this short, spooky video, right in time for Halloween and All Saints Day.

Busted Halo® interns help to keep our ministry going — and growing — and each one brings his or her own unique gifts and talents to the table. We have interns who have excellent writing abilities or marketing skills who help us reach out to young adults disconnected from their faith. Interns assist us with fundraising and development work, including thanking YOU, our generous donors. We also feature interns on the Busted Halo® Cast podcast — helping us to answer listeners’ questions of faith and also producing the podcast itself.
One of the things we find our interns excel at is using social media. Whether that be Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, we rely on interns to help us engage young…

This month I’m passing a few milestones: 50 years since my mother gave birth to me; 20 years since I entered the Paulist Fathers’ community; and 10 years since I took the reins as director of Busted Halo ministries. For all these I am immeasurably grateful: grateful to my family and friends for making me the person I am today; grateful to my brother Paulists for their support in mission and common life; and grateful to God for our being able to reach out and reconnect unchurched young adults through Busted Halo in so many effective ways. So, as this is a birthday where the gifts in my life and ministry are so numerous already, I could only ask any of you tempted to give a present to please give to our “50 at 50”…

FXX begins running a marathon of every Simpsons episode ever today for the next 12 days, prepping us all for Simpsons World in October (an exhaustive app/portal allowing users the ability to watch all 552 episodes from all 25 seasons of the show whenever they want). We decided to take this opportunity to rewatch, remember and list below our favorite spiritual (mmm…sacrilicious…) moments of our favorite animated series. Please feel free to add your own favorite Springfield spiritual moments in the comments below.

Busted Halo® says goodbye to Fr. Steve and sends him off with a list of our favorite Fr. Steve moments!

For the past two years, the readers of BustedHalo.com and the listeners of The Busted Halo Cast podcast and “The Busted Halo® Show” on Sirius XM Radio have been blessed by the ministry of Fr. Steven Bell, CSP. Later this month, Fr. Steve will be leaving the Busted Halo® team and begin sharing his many gifts with the more than 50,000 students at Ohio State University, where the Paulist Fathers have a vibrant campus ministry outreach.
We here at Busted Halo® have been so very thankful for the pastoral care that Fr. Steve brought to readers and listeners through his many articles, videos, virtual retreats, podcasts, and many segments on The Busted Halo® Show. He shared a passion for helping others deepen their…

Although some schools and universities still begin their school year in September, most students and teachers out there find themselves a little bit melancholy when August rolls around, signally imminent “Back to School” days and their waning freedom. So this month we provide you a tranquil image (St. Peter’s Church bell tower in Perugia, Italy) to keep you calm during your last few weeks of summer vacation. The Transfiguration and the Assumption are the big holy days of this month, of course.
