Catholic Word of the Day: DEATH INSTINCT, 11-26-12
| Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Featured Term (selected at random):
A term for the irrational desire for destruction and death and, when joined with pleasure, is a morbid drive for pain. It partly explains why some people commit suicide. It also helps to explain the nihilistic tendency in certain modern movements that exhibit a positive genius for destroying what may have taken centuries to build in religious or secular society.
