CHICAGO — The Legion of Christ announced July 15 that Father Luis Garza, the vicar general of the embattled religious congregation, has resigned and will assume leadership of its newly created “Legion Territory of North America,” which combines the current Atlanta and New York-based territories.

The news about the appointment and the consolidation of the two U.S. Legion territories was posted on the Legion of Christ’s website, accompanied by statements from several members of the order’s leadership.

Father Garza will leave his post in Rome and assume his new duties Aug. 1, in a new development likely to fuel criticism and speculation from some present and former members of the order. Many...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA) — Pope Benedict called on Catholics to nourish their faith in order to “prevent evil from taking root” in their lives. His words came during his July 17 Angelus address, which took place at Castel Gandolfo.

The Pope reflected on the Sunday Gospel in which Jesus tells the parable of the wheat and the weeds, reported Vatican Radio. The Pope added that Jesus used parables to explain the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven.

“Jesus compares the Kingdom of heaven to a wheat field to help us understand that something small and hidden is sown within us which has an irrepressible life force.”
“Despite all obstacles,” he continued, “the seed will grow and the fruit...READ MORE

Saturday Book Pick: God’s View of Economics

07/16/2011 Comments (3)

Amidst a two-year economic downturn, a stock market that sheered most pension plans by a quarter and almost double-digit joblessness, a “Catholic perspective on overcoming money worries” is especially timely. Whether this is that book, or the book readers expect, are two separate questions.

Regarding the latter, Jeffrey lays out his cards (albeit on page 111): “You may have purchased this book hoping for financial advice and instead — by design — I’ve led you on a journey inward. Financial freedom is not found in any amount of money, but in the trust one has in God’s providence. It’s impossible to make peace with money until you make peace with God. That is the real solution to the...READ MORE

SDG Reviews 'Winnie the Pooh' (4371)

The Disney throwback is the summer’s best family film.

Disney’s new Winnie the Pooh is an unexpected gift, an unlikely return to a magical and gentle world that belongs so firmly to the past that I would have thought the journey all but impossible.

A.A. Milne’s beloved character, Winnie the Pooh, and his Hundred Acre Wood friends, for decades a cornerstone of the Disney empire, have languished since my childhood in second-rate, small-screen adaptations, as well as a few theatrically released films (The Tigger Movie, Piglet’s Big Movie, Pooh’s Heffalump Movie) indistinguishable from direct-to-video fare.

Until now, few if any of these latter-day efforts have displayed much grasp of the sense of whimsy and nonsense that is the soul of Pooh....READ MORE
