Pope Benedict Returns to Germany (2866)

An exuberant welcome from his fellow countrymen dispels any controversy sown by the mainstream media. As usual, the Holy Father gets right down to business in his opening remarks.

WELCOME HOME. Pope Benedict XVI leads a Catholic Mass for 70,000 visitors at Olympiastadion on Sept. 22 in Berlin. Pope Benedict, who is German, was in Berlin for the first part of a four-day visit to Germany.

BERLIN — As the papal plane touched down Sept. 22, slightly ahead of schedule on a sunny and breezy autumn morning in Berlin, the atmosphere was a palpable mix of trepidation and eager anticipation.

The Pope’s first state visit to his increasingly secular homeland, the “country of the Reformation,” drew a good deal of controversy in the months preceding it. Would this nation, which has long struggled to understand the Catholic faith, welcome him with warmth and respect?

As if to show how much the Christian faith is being sidelined by the German people, one national newspaper listed the backgrounds of the key dignitaries welcoming him to Berlin: a divorced and remarried Catholic...READ MORE

LANSING, Mich. (EWTN News)—Paul Long, head of the Michigan Catholic Conference, is praising the Michigan Legislature for passing a bill to ban partial-birth abortion. He called the measure “the most commonsense policy a civilized society could enact.”

“There is no place in our state for those who seek to terminate the life of an unborn child partially delivered from his or her mother,” Long said on Sept. 21. “Today Michigan should stand proud in following the lead of dozens of other states and the federal government by prohibiting this most heinous and gruesome practice.”

One bill passed the Senate by a vote of 29-8, while the House passed its version by 75-33. The bills would allow...READ MORE

Bishops Tell President Obama to Stop Anti-Defense of Marriage Act Efforts (2445)

Archbishop Dolan: 'I urge yet again that your administration end its campaign against DOMA, the institution of marriage it protects, and religious freedom.'

09/22/2011 Comments (10)

WASHINGTON (CNA/EWTN News)—Archbishop Timothy Dolan, president of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ conference, urged President Obama and his administration to end their attack on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and the religious freedom of those who support it.

Archbishop Dolan warned in his Sept. 20 letter that by continuing its current course of action, the administration would “precipitate a national conflict between church and state of enormous proportions and to the detriment of both institutions.”

In an accompanying analysis, the bishops’ conference said it is concerned that if the administration continued its fight to redefine marriage, Catholic individuals and institutions would face...READ MORE

Reclaiming Our Story: A Register Editorial on Catholicism and Culture (3545)

Revelation presents the Church’s own story of its pilgrimage through history, a narrative once ingrained in Western culture, from the arts and literature to social tradition and medical ethics. But as many drift away from the stories of Abraham and Sarah, of the Incarnation and Lazarus, a revisionist narrative has been imposed, generating a false tale of the Church’s history in the world and tainting the faithful’s own view of Catholic tradition and doctrine. From the Sept. 25 issue.

Who tells the story of the Catholic Church — secularists, the faithful, ideological opponents, or cultural allies?

These days, the question is not a purely academic one. Catholic leaders struggle to counter negative media stereotypes and present a rich vision of faith and life that transcends the clergy abuse scandal and remains unafraid of engaging the modern world.

SDG Interviews the 'Machine Gun Preacher' (7600)

Sam Childers talks about his opening biopic, his work in the Sudan and his interactions with Catholics.

Sam Childers' story comes to the big screen in Machine Gun Preacher, which opens Sept. 23. (Photo: Wikipedia)

In 1998, a former gang biker named Sam Childers joined a church mission trip to the Sudan to help repair huts damaged in the Second Sudanese Civil War. Most of the people on that trip finished their charitable labors and left Africa behind, but Sam didn’t — not completely.

While in the Sudan, Sam came across the mutilated body of a child killed by a land mine. The experience shattered him, and Sam made a pledge to God to do whatever he could to help the children of the Sudan.

In spite of war-zone conditions, Sam embarked on a project that locals considered impossible: He built an orphanage near the Ugandan border. A dozen years later, over 1000 children have been sheltered in Sam’s...READ MORE
