The former carpenter was ordained to the priesthood in the Archdiocese of Hartford, Conn., May 17.

– Archdiocese of Hartford, Conn.

Father James Sullivan was ordained on May 17 in the Cathedral of St. Joseph for the Archdiocese of Hartford, Conn., after a 26-year career owning and operating Sullivan Brothers, LLC, contracting company in Wolcott, Conn., in partnership with his brother John.

After the brothers graduated from Providence College, they co-founded this business spur of the moment on a shoestring budget, with a single $5 ad that grew into a home remodeling and construction company employing 33 people. During his time in the working world, Father Sullivan also became a permanent deacon for the archdiocese, never expecting to someday become a priest.

Father Sullivan is from a family of four boys and two girls....READ MORE

The Cross and the Bible at Ground Zero (7887)

COMMENTARY: Paying a Visit to the National September 11 Memorial Museum at the World Trade Center

07/04/2014 Comment

'In Memoriam' Memorial Exhibition at the September 11 Memorial Museum

– 911memorial.org

At 8:45am on Sept. 11, 2001, I was walking into the Magnificat office, 20 miles north of the World Trade Center. My assistant told me that a plane had just flown into one of the Twin Towers and that there was general panic. I sent her home, and I went home, too. There, on television, I saw a jetliner fly into the South Tower.

In the days and weeks that followed, a number of my priest friends served as chaplains at Ground Zero. Hundreds of the victims — especially police officers and firefighters — were Catholic.

After 9/11, it was not unusual to pass a fire engine on the highway, a flag-draped coffin on its roof, headed to Gate of Heaven Cemetery. The sight triggered tears each time.

President Obama Draws Fire Over Border Crisis (4380)

Critics allege that administration policies are a substantial contributor to the current flood of migrant women and children into the United States.

President Barack Obama delivers remarks on border security and immigration reform June 30 from the White House Rose Garden.

– WhiteHouse.gov

WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of migrant women and children have crossed illegally into the United States from Central America, overwhelming Border Patrol agents and creating a humanitarian crisis at the nation’s southern border.

But the situation has drawn fire on President Barack Obama’s border policies, which some believe have played a significant role in triggering the recent exodus of migrants .

Since October, already 39,000 adults (mostly women) with children have turned themselves over to Border Patrol. Another 53,000 unaccompanied children have arrived from Central America, and the Obama administration is predicting 90,000 unaccompanied children will have arrived by September...READ MORE

KRAKOW, Poland — In a July 3 press conference in Krakow, Poland, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz presented the official logo and prayer for the 31st World Youth Day slated to take place there July 26-31, 2016.

Why We Serve: Religious Freedom and Catholic Service for the Poor (5227)


07/03/2014 Comments (8)

– USCCB.org

As we come to the close of the "Fortnight for Freedom," I’m reminded of an interview with Christopher Hitchens that I saw years ago. For those of you who don’t know, Hitchens, who died in 2012, was an essayist, political commentator, cultural observer and avowed atheist. He was one of these new atheists, the kind that are not content with merely being atheists themselves, but insist that everyone else should be too.

The interview I saw took place because of his then-recent book God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything. That should probably give you a sense of Hitchens’ approach to life. The interviewer, Peter Robinson, asked Hitchens why he was insulted when people asked him, “If...READ MORE
