PARIS — It seems to be over, but as one of my French confreres soberly suggested, “It could be just the beginning.”

I just came from watching on live television the assaults on both sites — one of which is located at the Porte de Vincennes, about a mile from where I live in Paris — where terrorists involved in the massacre at the headquarters of the magazine Charlie Hebdo had taken hostages in what I can only assume was meant to end in their martyrdom. The news anchors and reporters kept repeating that what France has been facing the past couple of days presents a new reality and a new threat, a sentiment that might resonate with any number of countries and peoples that have experienced...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — Fostering reconciliation after a bloody civil war, consoling many affected by a catastrophic natural disaster and promoting interreligious dialogue will be some of Pope Francis’ most important tasks when he embarks for Sri Lanka and the Philippines on Monday.

The Holy Father’s seventh and longest apostolic visit outside of Italy will also include the canonization of Sri Lanka’s first saint, three open-air Masses and dining with survivors of a devastating typhoon in the Philippines.

Francis’ apostolic voyage comes exactly 20 years after Pope St. John Paul II made a similar visit to Sri Lanka and the Philippines. Blessed Paul VI also visited both countries in 1970.

Confraternities of Catholic Clergy Reaffirm Church’s Teaching on Marriage and the Family (5171)

Cardinal Raymond Burke encouraged the gathering of representatives for nearly 1,000 priests at a conference in Rome not to give up amid the ‘troubled waters of confusion and error which surround us.’

– 2013 CNA/Lauren Cater

VATICAN CITY — A large group of clergy from English-speaking countries have unanimously reaffirmed their support for Church teaching on marriage and the family, implicitly rejecting proposals at the 2014 Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the Family that the Church alter pastoral practice and doctrine in this area.

In a statement issued at the end of a five-day conference in Rome Jan. 5-9, the Confraternities of Catholic Clergy in the United States, Australia, Britain and Ireland said they pledged their “unwavering fidelity to the traditional doctrines regarding marriage and the true meaning of human sexuality, as proclaimed in the word of God and set out clearly in the Church’s ordinary...READ MORE

Pope Francis Cautions Against Hearts Hardened by Fear (4391)

Only the Holy Spirit can prompt one’s heart to say Father and break the hardness of heart, so that it is free to love, the Pope said in his homily at Friday’s Mass.

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis cautioned against the narcissism of those who close their hearts out of fear, insecurity or vanity, saying that only the Holy Spirit can make us docile and open to love.

“We have ‘mirror men and women’ (who are wedded to their own images in the mirror), who are closed in on themselves and are constantly looking at themselves, right? These religious narcissists, right?” the Pope told those present for his Jan. 9 daily Mass.

These people, he said, “have a hardened heart, because they are closed in on themselves; they are not open. And they seek to defend themselves with these walls that they have created around themselves.”

Pope Francis spoke to those present in...READ MORE

Interview: ‘Selma’ Actor David Oyelowo on Playing Martin Luther King Jr. (3810)

The star of the new civil-rights drama talks with the Register’s film critic about his Christian faith, playing an American icon and why it was important to him that Selma depict the role of religion in the civil-rights movement.

01/09/2015 Comments (12)

If an actor in a faith-based indie like Son of God told you he felt God had told him he was meant to play the role in question, you might not bat an eye. It’s more striking to hear such a thing from the star of a $20-million Hollywood film like the civil-rights drama Selma — from an actor who has played in such films as Interstellar, The Butler and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

David Oyelowo, who plays Martin Luther King Jr. in Selma, isn’t shy about discussing his Christian faith. British-born to Nigerian parents, he speaks with an Oxford accent that vanishes on-screen in a variety of American accents — in this case, the rich cadences of King’s Georgia-accented oratory.
