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

Philadelphia is the place where both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were written. For more than two centuries, these documents have inspired people around the globe. So as we begin our reflection on today’s readings, I have the privilege of greeting everyone here today — and every person watching or listening from a distance — in the name of the Church of my home, the Church of Philadelphia, the cradle of our country’s liberty and the city of our nation’s founding. May God bless and guide all of us as we settle our hearts on the word of God.
