When Reagan and Ratzinger Teamed Up on Faith and Hope (7936)

COMMENTARY: Thirty years ago, the duo wrote words of wisdom worth paying attention to today.

08/30/2014 Comments (14)

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI almost a year after the June 2004 death of Ronald Reagan.

I don’t know if Ratzinger and Reagan ever met, though there’s a chance they did during one of Reagan’s visits to the Vatican to meet with Pope John Paul II, especially his first and most prominent visit, in June 1982.

Beginning then, Reagan got to know John Paul II well and admired him greatly. The two forged a friendship, a partnership, and even found a notable degree of spiritual harmony, despite their theological differences as a Protestant and a Catholic.

In truth, those differences were not vast. Ronald Reagan was not only remarkably pro-Catholic, but also strikingly Catholic...READ MORE

ROME — Those who are in irregular marital situations cannot receive holy Communion but are still part of the Christian faithful and “must feel at home” in Catholic churches, a leading Italian bishop has said.

Bishop Nunzio Galantino of Cassano all’Jonio told a national liturgical gathering of the Center of Liturgical Action Aug. 27 in Orvieto, Italy, that Communion is “the sacramental act that excellently expresses the union with Christ and the Church.”

The bishop, who serves as secretary general of the Italian bishops’ conference, noted Catholic teaching: that those in “an irregular marital situation” cannot receive Communion “because of their condition.”

He discussed how people in...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — A priest of the Legion of Christ has offered his profound apologies for published comments in which he is quoted as comparing the Legion’s disgraced founder, Father Marcial Maciel, with St. Mary Magdalene.

In a pamphlet entitled “Magdala: God Really Loves Women,” Father Juan Solana wrote that Father Maciel’s initials “are also MM, just like Mary Magdalene.”

The saint, the first witness to the Resurrection who is often thought of as the second most important woman of the New Testament after the Blessed Virgin Mary, “had a problematic past before her deliverance, so there’s a parallel,” he wrote in the pamphlet, which was published to promote the Legion-operated Magdala...READ MORE

The post-earthquake aftermath at Kolbe Academy in Napa, Calif.

– Kolbe Academy Facebook

At 3 in the morning on Sunday, Aug. 24, a 6.0-magnitude earthquake shook Napa Valley, Calif. — its reverberations were felt all the way to Marin County and Sacramento. It was the strongest quake in 25 years.

The Gospel reading on that calamitous day was Matthew 16: Jesus tells St. Peter that he is the rock on which the Church is built. Though the earthquake has devastated property and caused injuries, local Catholics’ faith remains as stable as that rock, as local clergy and Catholics alike attest.

Msgr. Gerard Brady’s parish, St. Thomas Aquinas, is in southwest Napa, not far from the earthquake’s epicenter on Milton Road.  

He said that his church only suffered broken dishes and glasses...READ MORE

Successful Okla. Lawsuit Could Block Future Satanist Black Masses (2250)

A lawyer who helped recover the Satanists’ stolen host says it provides a legal bulwark against the staging of such ceremonies.

08/29/2014 Comments (5)

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — A lawyer who helped recover a stolen host that organizers of an Oklahoma City black mass intended to desecrate said that the Church’s legal victory could have far-reaching effects.

“I don’t think we’re going to see Satanists doing this again, or they’ll going to understand we’re going to come after them, anywhere, any time this happens,” attorney Michael Caspino of the Irvine, Calif.-based law firm Busch & Caspino told CNA Aug. 27.

“We’ve now gutted the significance of their black mass. Now, it’s really just a bad show with bad actors,” Caspino said.

The occult group Dakhma of Angra Mainyu scheduled a black mass at the Oklahoma City Civic Center Music Hall Sept....READ MORE

Pope Francis arrives for Mass in Daejon, South Korea, for the Solemnity of the Assumption on Aug. 15.

SEOUL, South Korea — A former Korean ambassador to the Holy See spoke of the effects of Pope Francis’ recent visit to South Korea, saying that all of Asia now feels a long-term challenge to imitate his humble ways.

“All the media in Korea are already speaking of ‘Francis syndrome,’” former ambassador Thomas Han told CNA Aug. 26.

“The Korean people, having been deeply impressed by Pope Francis’ person and his lifestyle, seriously reflect upon the meaning of their lives and seek to see the things in life that really matter.”

Han explained that leaders “at every level of society” now feel an “unspoken pressure to make their own the leadership style the Korean people have witnessed in Pope...READ MORE
