Rep. Chris Smith speaks during a press conference with nurses in the background who were suing the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey hospital Nov. 14.


NEWARK, N.J.  — Last week, a New Jersey hospital   settled with a group of nurses, who charged that they were forced to participate in abortions, in violation of state conscience protections.

In a Dec. 22 statement, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark agreed not to require nurses to participate in abortions or any service related to those abortions.

“Now it is the hospital’s responsibility to make sure respect for conscience is...READ MORE

The Eucharist is being used more and more as a way to save unborn children and convert those who favor abortion.

As the United States prepares to mark the 39th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, adoration chapels across the country are being set up next to abortion businesses. It’s a growing movement that Father Steve Imbarrato, chaplain of Holy Innocents Chapel in Albuquerque, N.M., says he hopes will increase.

“I want to promote Eucharistic adoration to fight abortion,” Father Imbarrato said. As the director for Project Life, he said everything he does to promote life involves the Eucharist. “The chapel is the spiritual center of all our pro-life work,” he stated.

Vaclav Havel and Kim Jong Il (3610)

Good and evil in the lives and deaths of two world leaders

12/27/2011 Comments (5)

Two very different leaders died last weekend, Vaclav Havel, 75, former president of both Czechoslovakia (1989-1992) and the Czech Republic (1993-2003) after it split from Slovakia, and Kim Jong Il, 69, dictator of North Korea since 1994.

The first helped defeat communism in 1989, ushering in freedom for a huge swath of Eurasia, from Berlin to the Bering Strait; the second prolonged it into the 21st century, with disastrous consequences, especially for the North Korean people.

A simple narrative, accurate in a minimalist sense, calls one man good and the other evil. Catholic theology calls us to deeper considerations.

Havel, who died Dec. 18, was buried with an exquisite Catholic Requiem...READ MORE
