Who Will Be Saved, How Many and How? (11767)

Father C. John McCloskey recommends Ralph Martin's latest book "Will Many Be Saved? What Vatican II Actually Teaches and Its Implications for the New Evangelization"

09/28/2013 Comments (48)

Will Many Be Saved? What Vatican II Actually Teaches and Its Implications for the New Evangelization, published by Eerdmans, is an important and intriguing book by Ralph Martin, S.T.D., a lay theologian, professor at Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit, consultor to the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the New Evangelization and author of books on the spiritual life. Many readers will recognize him as an early leader of the Charismatic Renewal in the U.S. Today, he serves as president of Renewal Ministries.

Rarely have I seen a book endorsed by so many cardinals, bishops, Vatican officials and outstanding theologians. And for good reason, as the book considers questions that interest all...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — At 9am Monday, Pope Francis will convene an ordinary consistory in Rome to announce the date of the canonizations of Blessed Pope John Paul II and Blessed John XXIII.

The eagerly anticipated ceremony is expected to take place on Divine Mercy Sunday, which in 2014 falls on April 27, the first Sunday after Easter.

The consistory will be held in the Consistory Hall of the Vatican Apostolic Palace.

Why Are We So Afraid? (11953)

To Be Afraid of Hell

09/27/2013 Comments (42)

As I’ve taught classes and given talks on the “New Evangelization,” I’ve been struck at how both Jesus and the apostles make a regular part of their message not only the positive proclamation of the Good News that Christ has, by his sacrifice, won redemption for the whole world, but also the terrible consequences of neglecting such an offer: namely, hell.

Yet seldom is this foundational part of the New Testament’s message heard in the contemporary Church. Why are we so afraid of speaking about hell?

Some common reactions: “Our religion is a religion of love, not of fear.” “People already have a bad self-image, and this could make them feel worse.” “Fear of hell is an unworthy motive...READ MORE

‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2’ (4804)

FILM REVIEW: Feast for the Eyes Starving for a Better Script

'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2'

– Facebook

One of the nicer surprises on the big screen these last few years was the original Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs. Unlike certain animated features that strive for a kind of photo-naturalistic realism, Cloudy, which concerned a young inventor named Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) whose ability to make food out of almost nothing quickly gets out of hand, was delightfully cartoony and consistently inventive to boot.

What’s more, the film had positive things to say about father-son relationships, the value of intelligence (for boys and girls alike) and the dangers posed by pollution and the industrialization of food — all without being too on the nose about it, and all without...READ MORE

New Chinese-English Bible Marks Major Evangelization Breakthrough (3900)

The new Bible will help spread the faith among those curious about Christianity and wanting to learn English.

An open Bible

– Petr Kratochvil

WASHINGTON — A new edition of the Old Testament in both English and traditional Chinese is a valuable tool for Chinese Catholics and represents a new possibility for evangelization, say leaders in the community.

Carolyn Ng, director of religious education for the Our Lady of China Pastoral Mission in the Archdiocese of Washington, told CNA that she is “overjoyed” about the new translation, and  she is “very happy there is such a tool for evangelization as well as use among Catholics.”

She stated that the complete parallel translation will help baptized Catholics be able to participate more fully in the Chinese Catholic community, whether English or Chinese is their first language.
