Immigration and the 'Next America': Perspectives From Our History (10377)

08/01/2011 Comments (45)

Our political debate about immigration in America frustrates me. Often, I think we are just talking around the edges of the real issues.

Both sides of this argument are inspired by a beautiful, patriotic idea of America’s history and values. But, lately, I’ve been starting to wonder: What America are we really talking about?

America is changing, and it has been changing for a long time. The forces of globalization are changing our economy and forcing us to rethink the scope and purpose of our government. Threats from outside enemies are changing our sense of national sovereignty.

America is changing on the inside, too.

Our culture is changing. We have a legal structure that allows,...READ MORE

Wadowice: Pope John Paul II’s First ‘Seminary’ (2654)

Part 2 of Joan Frawley Desmond’s journal about her pilgrimage to Poland.

08/01/2011 Comments (1)

Part one of this series appeared July 26.

Our pilgrim group, organized by Franciscan University at Steubenville and headed by Bishop Zubik of Pittsburgh, wended our way to Wadowice, the birthplace of Karol Jozef Wojtyla, the Polish boy would become Pope John Paul II.

Born in 1920, he lived in this small city during his childhood and adolescence, until 1938, when he entered the Jagiellonian University in Krakow.

Suffering and loss soon entered the life of the small family, with the death of Karol’s mother in 1929, and then his older brother in 1932. Yet a deep faith and sense of hope — rather than desolation and bitterness — pervaded the Wojtyla home, a spiritual perspective fostered by...READ MORE

Dawn Eden's Teatime With Archbishop Sambi (1816)

Convert recalls late papal nuncio's love for the Jewish people and all people: 'The way that the archbishop was so warm, so fatherly and personable, it felt like he was conveying the Holy Father's love for each one of us, which is, of course, an extension of God’s love for each one of us.'

WASHINGTON (CNA) — Author and Catholic convert from Judaism Dawn Eden remembers Archbishop Pietro Sambi as a pastoral leader with a “fatherly” heart who shared a special connection with her over his deep affection for the Jewish faith.

Archbishop Sambi, the Pope’s diplomatic representative to the U.S., died on Wednesday, July 27, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore after lung-surgery complications.

Eden, known for her 2006 bestseller The Thrill of the Chaste, remembers a unique and surprising series of events with the late archbishop that are forever branded in her memory.

In a July 29 interview with CNA, she recalled meeting Archbishop Sambi for the first time in 2007 at a dinner...READ MORE

Responsible Use of the Media (3704)

Saturday Book Pick: Steubenville professor outlines relationship between faith and media.

07/30/2011 Comments (3)

In this, his first book, Eugene Gan seeks to lay out the basic principles that, according to Scripture and the magisterium, “should govern Catholics’ understanding and use of the media,” most especially new media such as the Internet. He expounds on seven “media keys” culled from Church documents on social communications which date back to 1936. These keys include balance, dignity of the human person, truth and skillful development.

Gan, who teaches communication arts at Franciscan University of Steubenville, feels many people are unaware of “the relationship between faith and the media they use.” The principles laid out in the book are a guide to not only facilitating awareness of the...READ MORE

Saving Notre Dame's Soul (28438)

Our Lady’s University is at a critical juncture, says longtime history professor.

University of Notre Dame

– Wikipedia

SOUTH BEND, Ind. — “Notre Dame is a place that is not clear about its mission and identity. There is a debate here as to whether it will be a Catholic university at its heart or just in a peripheral way.”

So says Notre Dame history professor Father Wilson Miscamble.

While Notre Dame has made headlines in recent years over salacious — and scandalous — controversies involving The Vagina Monologues on campus, honoring President Barack Obama, and, most recently, a now-former trustee who was generous in her support to abortion-advocacy organizations, daily Mass continues in single-sex dorms on campus. Meanwhile, many faithful professors lie low but provide solid anchors to the school’s...READ MORE
