Jeff Grabosky is no ordinary Catholic athlete. On May 21, he reached the Atlantic Ocean at Smith Point, Long Island, N.Y., to complete a run he started in Oceanside, Calif., on Jan. 20. In 121 days, his coast-to-coast run tallied an incredible 3,701.8 miles — and he prayed from start to finish.

Why did he even consider such a challenge? From an athletic standpoint, it was a big step up from the marathons he had done and other runs to raise money for various charities.

“But I wanted to basically make a difference in the world,” Grabosky explained, “and what better way than by praying for people? I wanted to help everyone. Running is a talent of mine; using that talent to spread the good...READ MORE

ALBANY, N.Y. — The battle over same-sex “marriage” has reached a critical point in New York, where the Democratic governor and well-financed homosexual-rights activists are aggressively lobbying lawmakers to legalize homosexual “marriage.”

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been campaigning across the state, urging voters to lean on their representatives to vote in favor of legislation that would make New York the sixth and largest state in the country to legalize same-sex “marriage,” which opponents say would have a dramatic impact on the issue nationwide.

“This is not just about a fight in New York. If we lose the battle here, we will ultimately lose the fight across the country,” predicts Michael...READ MORE

Washington Grapples With Catholic Social Teaching (10507)

May has marked a month of renewed focus on Church thought and its practical implications.

WASHINGTON — When John Boehner arrived on the campus of The Catholic University of America as commencement speaker May 14, the Catholic speaker of the House of Representatives did so under a cloud of controversy. The media attention was the result of a well-timed, backhanded welcome letter sent by a group of professors from Catholic universities.

The letter was patronizing in tone. “We write in the hope that this visit will reawaken your familiarity with the teachings of your Church on matters of faith and morals as they relate to governance,” the letter said. It continued: “Mr. Speaker, your voting record is at variance from one of the Church’s most ancient moral teachings. From the...READ MORE

Love and Wonder (2072)

Saturday Book Pick: Peter Kreeft’s Socrates Meets Hume.

05/21/2011 Comments (1)

I studied philosophy under Peter Kreeft, so reading this book was like going back in time to sit in the classroom again.

Which is a good thing, because Professor Kreeft was always challenging, rigorous, honest and humorous. Philosophy under his guidance was exciting: to unfold the basic tasks of human beings; to try to find out why things are the way they are; to love wisdom, which is what the word philosophy means. And that love, he said, quoting St. Augustine, begins in wonder.

Wonder is not something David Hume wrote much about. He was an 18th-century English philosopher who seems to have refuted just about everything he could: the idea of a self, the validity of general ideas, the...READ MORE
