Refreshingly Christ-Centered (2747)

Saturday Book Pick: Orbis, Maryknoll’s publishing house, showing signs of being more comfortable with the magisterium. A volume on world religions and another on Catholic social teaching provide evidence.

07/23/2011 Comment

Few might accuse Orbis Books of regularly publishing works clearly reflecting the magisterium’s teaching on world religions. Now, something may be changing.

One thing recent work, Catholic Engagement With World Religions: A Comprehensive Study, aspires to do just this. Engagement is a thoroughly engaging work on the “state of the question” of ecclesial reflection within the sphere of Catholic interreligious dialogue. This is examined in light of that restatement of Catholic teaching — by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger — entitled Dominus Iesus (“The Lord Jesus.”)  Though this is the latest installment in the Orbis “Faith Meets Faith” series (which has offered works not only by such...READ MORE

OSLO, Norway (CNA/EWTN News) — Catholics in Norway are shocked by what appears to be a terrorist attack on government headquarters in Oslo that killed at least seven people and injured another 15 on July 22.

“We are so used to being this quiet little nation where nothing like this happens,” said Father Paul Bratbak, the communications director for the Diocese of Oslo, in a July 22 interview with CNA.

“It’s just too much to take in at the moment.”

Following the explosion, a gunman opened fire at a youth camp connected to Norway’s ruling Labour Party, killing at least 20 youth, according to The Associated Press.

Responsibility for the explosion and subsequent shooting remains...READ MORE

– Diocese of Joliet

JOLIET, Ill. (EWTN News) — During his installation Mass, Bishop R. Daniel Conlon of Joliet, Ill., stressed the need for bishops to be humble, courageous and conscious of their role as someone sent by God.

“I did not seek to be a bishop, nor am I worthy to be one,” he said in his homily. “This is all someone else’s idea. And, although God may use human instruments, in the end, it is his idea.”

“With Christ Jesus, the ultimate apostle, as the model, nothing central to our faith starts with us: not the Scriptures, not the sacraments, not the doctrines, not the moral principles. Nor can we treat God’s household as though it were our own,” he continued.

SDG Reviews 'Captain America: The First Avenger' (7987)

Old-fashioned heroism highlights rousing action movie.

07/22/2011 Comments (20)

– Marvel

Early in Captain America: The First Avenger, we find Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) in a darkened movie theater unhappily protesting the boorish, disruptive behavior of another patron. “Hey, you wanna show some respect?” he appeals, not too hopefully.

How can any film lover resist such a hero? How many ringtones will echo in theaters showing Captain America this weekend? How many flashing handheld screens will distract viewers while their neighbors text or tweet about the movie or about what they had for dinner? A hero who champions respect, civility and silence in movie theaters is surely a hero for our times, even if the year is 1943 and there are no mobile phones yet. Why don’t more of us...READ MORE
