True Freedom (4109)

Saturday Book Pick: Cardinal Dolan's first e-Book takes up a timely topic: religious liberty.

07/07/2012 Comments (2)

In 1978, when I was preparing for the priesthood in Rome, I had the privilege of being present in St. Peter’s Square when the newly chosen Pope John Paul II came out on the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica and addressed the crowd by quoting Our Lord’s words “Ne Timeas” (Do not be afraid).

I, along with the rest of the throng present, somehow sensed that the world was going to be different under this man who came “from a far country,” as he put it.

And, indeed, it did change. The Holy Spirit outdid himself by sending this epochal holy man of God to lead us through the end of the era of the Evil Empire and help us cross over into the new millennium.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan is such a...READ MORE

Vatican Astronomer: 'God Particle' Is Exciting But Has No Theological Bearing (4351)

'It is a wonderful piece of science,' said Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, a researcher and spokesman at the Vatican Observatory.

While it has no direct bearing on theology or revelation, the scientific discovery hailed by some as the “God particle” is an important achievement, a Vatican astronomer says.

“It is a wonderful piece of science,” said Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, a researcher and spokesman at the Vatican Observatory, in a July 5 interview with EWTN News.

On July 4, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) publicized results suggesting it had found the elusive “Higgs boson” particle, thought to explain the physical mass of objects in the universe, by means of subatomic experiments carried on at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva.

Brother Consolmagno said the apparent discovery of...READ MORE

Cheri Lomonte assumed our men and women in uniform had ready access to a Catholic chaplain and could attend Mass every Sunday. But talking to a Marine officer’s wife, she was more than mildly shocked to learn that the military in all branches, especially those deployed, might not have a Mass or see a chaplain for weeks at a time.

Lomonte, the founder and host of Mary’s Touch radio program, felt there was a void that needed to be filled. So she founded Frontline Faith, a nonprofit organization in Austin, Texas, to fill MP3 players with faith content and send them to soldiers, especially those deployed or being deployed to the fronts.

Since launching the program on July 4 two years ago,...READ MORE

KENNESAW, Ga. — St. Catherine of Siena, one of the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s largest parishes, wants to be the first Catholic church in the United States to create an independent motion picture.

Following the example of Protestant churches that have come together to produce films such as Courageous and The Grace Card, St. Catherine is working on a film called Five Blocks Away. The project is being spearheaded by filmmaker Kevis Antonio, founder of Rising Faith Productions and a St. Catherine’s parishioner.

“Last year when I went to a prescreening of Courageous, I asked myself, Why don’t Catholics make films?” said Antonio, who is serving as writer, director and producer. “It’s great...READ MORE

Robert Muise has spent the past 12 years in state and federal courts defending religious liberty, freedom of speech, the traditional family and the sanctity of life. In January of this year, he co-founded the American Freedom Law Center and was one of the first to file a lawsuit challenging the Health and Human Services mandate, on behalf of Priests for Life.

He spoke with Register correspondent Bob Horning.
