VATICAN CITY — The parents of freelance journalist James Foley, who was beheaded by ISIS terrorists earlier this week, were “deeply moved and grateful” for Pope Francis’ telephone call yesterday, a Vatican spokesman has said.

The director of the Holy See Press Office, Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, confirmed last night that the Holy Father called Foley’s family in New Hampshire to console them on the loss of their son. Diane and John Foley received the Pope’s call at about 3pm Thursday afternoon, local time.

“He was very compassionate, very loving,” said a priest friend of the family, Father Marc Montminy, of St. Michael’s Church in Exeter. Father Montminy added that Pope Francis spoke...READ MORE

DETROIT — Cardinal Edmund Szoka, who had served as archbishop of Detroit and president of the Vatican City State, died Wednesday of natural causes at the age of 86 at the local Providence Park Hospital.

“We mourn the loss of a dedicated shepherd. For 60 years, Cardinal Szoka gave himself totally to his priestly service of Christ and his Church,” said Archbishop Allen Vigneron, current archbishop of Detroit. “He has gone home to the Heavenly Father with our prayers. May the Lord give him the reward of his labors.”

Born on Sept.14, 1927, Edmund Casimir Szoka grew up in Grand Rapids as the child of Polish immigrants. He attended St. Joseph Seminary and was ordained a priest on June 5, 1954,...READ MORE

ORLANDO, Fla. — Actor Gary Sinise’s respect and admiration for military men and women goes far beyond his role as Lt. Dan in the popular 1994 film Forrest Gump.

For generations, members of his family and his wife’s family have served their country, which inspired Sinise to support veterans for years and ultimately start the Gary Sinise Foundation in 2011.

This past year, the Knights of Columbus donated $200,000 to help build a “smart home” for U.S. Army Cpl. Kyle Hockenberry, who lost three of his limbs in combat.

“They are a great, tremendous charitable organization and have demonstrated that for over 100 years,” Sinise told CNA Aug. 7, “so to get their support is very meaningful and...READ MORE

Satanists Return Stolen Host to Archbishop Coakley (8364)

The organizer of a Sept. 21 black mass surrendered the consecrated Host, one day after the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City filed a lawsuit for its recovery.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City's archbishop voiced relief that Satanists organizing a "black mass" in the city returned a stolen host that was to be desecrated, but restated his concern that the event should happen at all.

The host was given to a priest Aug. 21 by an attorney representing Adam Daniels, who organized the black mass.

“I am relieved that we have been able to secure the return of the sacred Host and that we have prevented its desecration as part of a planned Satanic ritual,” Archbishop Paul Coakley said Aug. 21.

“I remain concerned about the dark powers that this Satanic worship invites into our community and the spiritual danger that this poses to all who are involved in it,...READ MORE

‘Black Masses’ and God’s Beloved Children (5584)

COMMENTARY: Mockery does not stop Jesus Christ — the Eternal Victor.

In just a few weeks, on Sept. 21, a “black mass” is scheduled to be conducted in Oklahoma City. 

The “celebrant” is Adam Daniels, a supposed “Satanic priest,” who has booked the Oklahoma Civic Center for the event. My good friend Archbishop Paul Coakley, the Catholic archbishop of Oklahoma City, has asked Christians everywhere to pray with and for the people of Oklahoma City in response to this event.

This is the second time in recent months that a black mass has become an issue in the United States. In May, a student club at Harvard University planned to stage such an event. After backlash from students and from the community, the event was moved from the Harvard campus, and it was...READ MORE

‘The Giver’ Offers Reflection About Human Life, Free Will (2905)

The World Over interviewed those involved in the film as well as the author of the book on which the movie is based.

The new dystopian movie The Giver has drawn praise for its deep thematic content on the value of human life, suffering, free will and the dangers of a world that distorts language to do evil.

“We all love to be comfortable,” actor Jeff Bridges, one of the movie’s leads, told EWTN's The World Over host Raymond Arroyo in an interview broadcast Aug. 14. “The movie asks the questions: What are you willing to pay for that comfort? What does that comfort cost?”

Bridges told Arroyo that he was drawn to the work because of its themes. “It’s provocative,” he added.

“Hopefully, it will have people asking these questions: What am I willing to do just to be comfortable? What is that costing me? Is...READ MORE
