WASHINGTON — Cardinal Edward Egan, the archbishop emeritus of New York who balanced the books and strengthened Catholic schools, but avoided the spotlight, died on March 5. He was 82.

Cardinal Egan's funeral Mass will be held at St. Patrick's Cathedral on March 10 at 2 pm, with Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York as the chief celebrant, joined by five cardinals and 30 bishops.

After the Archdiocese of New York confirmed that Cardinal Egan had died following cardiac arrest, Church leaders swiftly reacted to the news.

They expressed sadness at his death. But they also celebrated his remarkable legacy in New York, as well as his previous service as the bishop of Bridgeport, Conn., and in...READ MORE

‘The Sound of Music’: A Memorable Movie Full of Catholic Milieu (4194)

COMMENTARY: The classic film celebrates 50 years since its release this week, bringing back memories of Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer and the children playing the von Trapps on the big screen at Radio City Music Hall.

With The Sound of Music celebrating 50 years since its release this week, my mind goes back to a chilly spring morning in New York City, when the sisters of my Catholic school brought us students to see Julie Andrews, Christopher Plummer and the children play the von Trapps on the big screen at Radio City Music Hall.

Writing out this account not only brings back fond memories, it also illustrates how much things have changed in the Church and the world over the past half century.

The year was 1967, when movies made long public runs, prior to cable and online on-demand options. I was in the fourth grade, soon to receive the sacrament of confirmation. I was thrilled to join my fellow...READ MORE

The United Kingdom is poised to become a world leader in manufacturing. The product: genetically engineered babies and human clones.

That’s the trajectory of votes this month, first in the House of Commons and just this week in the House of Lords. Approval of the concept by the British Parliament paves the way for clinics to create babies who will have DNA contribution from two mums and a dad.

The techniques proposed to create three-parent babies purport to “treat” mitochondrial genetic diseases. Mitochondria are small energy factories within every cell of the human body, with tens to thousands of mitochondria in each cell.

Just as the DNA in the cell nucleus is subject to mutation, so...READ MORE

‘It’s a Mistake to See Francis as Wanting Kasper’s Proposals’ (4790)

Author Austen Ivereigh weighs in on the Pope and the October Synod.

– catholicvoices.co.uk

VATICAN CITY — The October Ordinary Synod of Bishops on the Family has sparked much discussion about just what Pope Francis really intends to achieve.

In this recent interview with Austen Ivereigh, author of the recently published The Great Reformer, probably the most comprehensive biography of the Holy Father to date, he discusses with the Register Francis’ probable intentions, how he is likely to view the well-publicized disagreements the synod has engendered and whether he really would like to see Cardinal Walter Kasper’s controversial proposal for re-admitting divorced-and-civilly-remarried Catholics to holy Communion adopted by the universal Church. Ivereigh, a former deputy editor of...READ MORE

States Grapple With Lethal-Injection Problems (2354)

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to consider the issue, Virginia’s Catholic bishops join with other death-penalty opponents to thwart a state bill that would have shrouded such executions in secrecy.

03/06/2015 Comments (6)


WASHINGTON — Legal scholars and anti-death-penalty advocates are speculating about the possible impact the U.S. Supreme Court could have when it hears arguments next month on the constitutionality of Oklahoma’s controversial three-drug protocol for carrying out executions by lethal injection.

Florida has already stayed the scheduled execution of a convicted murderer until the Supreme Court’s ruling, which is expected sometime this summer. Some states, including Pennsylvania and Oregon, have moratoriums in place while they review their respective death-penalty protocols.

Meanwhile in Virginia, the state Catholic conference and allies in late February helped defeat a bill, supported by Gov....READ MORE
