There be 'Isms' (3038)

Saturday Book Pick: John Zmirak's guide to navigating college ideologies.

09/10/2011 Comment

Navigating a new college environment is difficult enough for Catholic freshmen without having to combat each secular philosophy and "ism" that lurks around every corner. Unless you’re fortunate enough to attend a faithful Catholic college or university, you need to discern the agenda of each and every professor. Chances are, it’s not compatible with the Catholic faith.

However, there is good news for students trying to crack the code of these "isms." John Zmirak, author of The Bad Catholic’s Guide to the Seven Deadly Sins and Choosing the Right Catholic College, has asked more than a dozen professors, priests, journalists, philosophers and theologians to help budding scholars navigate the...READ MORE

Pope Benedict Marks 10th Anniversary of 9/11 by Praying for America (3273)

The Holy Father wrote of the need for global peace in a letter to Archbishop Dolan of New York.

09/09/2011 Comment

NEW YORK CITY (CNA) — Pope Benedict XVI spoke of the world’s need for compassion and justice in a letter marking the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

“It is my fervent prayer,” the Pope told New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan in the letter, “that a firm commitment to justice and a global culture of solidarity will help rid the world of the grievances that so often give rise to acts of violence and will create the conditions for greater peace and prosperity, offering a brighter and more secure future.”

In the letter, dated Sept. 11 but released two days in advance, Pope Benedict told Archbishop Dolan that his thoughts were occupied...READ MORE

Jesus Goes to College

It’s that time of year again: A new academic year begins. So many possibilities for learning about different subjects — and faith.

The most important must-have students can bring to college is Christ.

Christ is needed more than ever on campus. Be the students who bring Jesus there, witnessing with your words and actions and choices — in and out of class. Be active in Catholic student clubs or your local Newman Center. Go to Mass. Attend a Bible study. Share your faith with others.

I studied English literature and pre-medicine in college at a Big Ten university. I don’t remember organic chemistry anymore, although I can tell you the major themes of Jane Austen’s novels....READ MORE

John Paul II's Reaction to 9/11 (5097)

The former U.S. ambassador to the Holy See recalls the late Holy Father's response to the terrible events 10 years ago.

Pope John Paul II, although a man of the Church, was possessed with an uncommon sense for the dynamics of globalism and the complexities of peoples and cultures.

My first one-on-one meeting with Pope John Paul II was on Sept. 13, 2001. The occasion was the formal presentation of my diplomatic credentials as the new United States ambassador to the Holy See. It was planned to be a festive occasion; instead, it was a sad event, as the world was grieving the horrific events of just 48 hours prior.

The first thing the Pope said to me was how sorry he felt for my country, which had just been attacked, and how sad it made him feel. We next said a prayer together for the victims and their...READ MORE

SDG Reviews 'Warrior' (5575)

Rough-and-tumble sports movie touches on God, guilt, forgiveness and family.

09/09/2011 Comments (1)

Warrior opens with a welter of Christian iconography and references: a Pittsburgh church adorned with Eastern-style three-bar crosses from which we see Paddy Conlon (Nick Nolte) emerge; a rosary dangling from his rearview mirror as he drives home to discover his estranged son Tommy (Tom Hardy) waiting on the stoop of his house; a Bible that Tommy contemplates on Paddy’s table.

“So you found God. That’s awesome,” Tommy says softly, meaning the opposite. “Mom kept calling out for him … but he wasn’t around. I guess Jesus was down at the mill, forgiving all the drunks, huh? Who knew?”

Jesus may have forgiven Paddy, but Paddy’s sons haven’t. His drinking and violence drove his wife away when...READ MORE

CHICAGO — Inspired by Kenneth Clark’s 1969 BBC television series Civilization, Father Robert Barron always dreamed of doing something similar to showcase the beauty of the Catholic Church.

More than two years and 12 trips to 16 different countries later, the result is an ambitious 10-part documentary series called Catholicism. Parts of the unprecedented documentary will start to air nationwide on PBS at the end of September through the fall. (Hear him talk about the series today, Sept. 9, at 2pm Eastern on “Register Radio.”)

“This is the most important media project in the history of the Catholic Church in America,” said papal biographer George Weigel. “Catholicism could well become one...READ MORE
