NAPLES, Fla. — “If you want to get scoffed at, go to the halls of Congress and say, ‘I believe in abstinence,’” former President George W. Bush said recently.

But he wasn’t getting scoffed at here. Far from it. The 43rd president of the United States received a standing ovation at a lunchtime gathering during the annual Legatus Summit in Naples, Fla.

Bush headlined the international gathering of Legatus members, addressing the convention by drawing from his two terms in the White House.

The former president also addressed the controversial “contraceptive mandate” issued by the federal Department of Health and Human Services. Speaking Feb. 4, as Catholic-led protests of the Obama...READ MORE

Every year, countless articles and TV spots spring up advising lovers on how to find the ideal gift for their Valentines. Most of these are really just advertising in a not-very-subtle disguise, but even those that aren’t tend to cast the net into the shallows. They assume that the gift giver is looking to present his beloved with a modestly thoughtful gift that will serve to placate the idols of Romance for another year: a gift which can be procured during lunch hour and which says, “Please don’t divorce me for another 365 days.”

Fair enough. People are busy, and in a good marriage, a Valentine’s gift is often just a small, thoughtful formality, like a good-morning kiss as you leave the...READ MORE

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — When filmmakers Jon and Andrew Erwin tackled October Baby, they knew that their movie was imitating life. The film is loosely based on the life of abortion survivor Gianna Jessen.

What they didn’t know is that their art was imitating life in more ways than one, through the story of one of the film’s actresses.

The part road-trip, part-romance drama follows the journey of Hannah, a college freshman who learns that she was adopted and the survivor of a failed abortion attempt. She sets out to find her birth mother and ends up learning a lesson about forgiveness. The film is being distributed by Sony’s Provident Films and opens in theaters nationwide March 23.

VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News)—Christian families should be a happy and loving environment in which young people can discern calls to the priesthood or religious life, Pope Benedict XVI says in his message for the World Day of Prayers for Vocations.

“Families are not only the privileged place for human and Christian formation; they can also be ‘the primary and most excellent seed bed of vocations to a life of consecration to the Kingdom of God,’ by helping their members to see, precisely within the family, the beauty and the importance of the priesthood and the consecrated life,” the Pope said on Feb. 13.

The 49th World Day of Prayer for Vocations will be celebrated on April 29 with the...READ MORE

Bishops Reject Obama's 'Accommodation' (3516)

'We are dismayed that he does not understand the root issues which are involved here,' says one bishop.

02/13/2012 Comments (14)

WASHINGTON — After President Obama announced accommodations to the controversial Health and Human Services mandate that stirred a backlash from Catholics, Christians, Orthodox Jews and others, responses rolled in.

They range from caution to rejection.

As the official statement from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) was readied and released, some individual bishops remained studying the government’s “accommodation” before commenting on it, while some began to weigh in on the matter quickly.

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput rejected the Obama administration’s attempt to revise its contraception mandate, saying the rule remained “insulting” and “dangerous” to believers’...READ MORE
