WASHINGTON — Earlier his month, Angela McCaskill, the chief diversity officer for Gallaudet University, was placed on administrative leave after her signature was spotted on a petition to put a same-sex “marriage” referendum — known as Question 6 — on the Maryland ballot this November.

The referendum, which asks voters to decide Yes or No to legalize same-sex “marriage,” is viewed as a challenge to a state law passed last spring that made same-sex “marriage” legal in Maryland.

Alan Hurwitz, the president of the Washington-based university for the deaf, announced on Oct. 10 that he had removed the administrator because “Dr. McCaskill has participated in a legislative initiative that...READ MORE

As the Church celebrates 50 years since the opening of the Second Vatican Council, the Register spoke with a man who, like Pope Benedict XVI, knows Vatican II from firsthand experience — Cardinal Francis Arinze, the youngest bishop, at age 33, to take part in the Council’s final session in 1965.

The Nigerian cardinal, who served as president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue from 1985-2002 and as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments from 2002 until his retirement in 2008, discussed the Council's highlights, the problems that followed it and his hopes for the Year of Faith.

ROME — An American priest and scholar who was awarded the annual Ratzinger Prize for Theology by Pope Benedict XVI on Oct. 20 was both thrilled and surprised to receive the honor.

“It was a total surprise for me, but I'm really touched that they would think of me for this and that it would bear the name of our present Holy Father, whom I have always admired a lot,” said Jesuit Father Brian Daley, a professor of patristic theology at the University of Notre Dame.

The 72-year-old shared the honor with French Catholic lay philosopher Remi Brague.

“Father Daley and professor Brague are exemplary for the transmission of knowledge that unites science and wisdom, scientific rigor and...READ MORE

Vatican Deplores Beirut Car Bomb Attack (1836)

Pope Benedict XVI has called for Lebanon to be a witness to 'peace and hope' for its residents and throughout the region.

10/22/2012 Comment

– Catholic News Agency

VATICAN CITY —  The Vatican’s spokesman is condemning the car bomb attack in Beirut, Lebanon, which killed a leading Lebanese security official and seven other people while wounding dozens.

“The attack in Beirut deserves the firmest condemnation, for the senseless murderous violence which manifested itself and because it runs counter to the efforts and commitment to preserve a peaceful coexistence in Lebanon,” Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican’s press office, said Oct. 19.

He cited Pope Benedict XVI’s call for Lebanon to be a witness to “peace and hope” for its residents and throughout the region.

He said the Holy See shares in the grief over the deaths and injuries...READ MORE

Pope Benedict XVI presided over the Church’s canonization of the first American Indian, Kateri Tekakwitha, at St. Peter’s Square yesterday. The 17th-century virgin and laywoman, informally known as the “Lily of the Mohawks,” was born in 1656 in present-day New York and died at the age of 24 at the Jesuit mission village of Kahnawake, south of Montreal, in New France.

In advance of the Oct. 21 canonization, Father W. Carroll Paysse, executive director of the Black and Indian Mission Office of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, spoke to Rome correspondent Edward Pentin Oct. 17 about the significance of the life of St. Kateri and what her canonization means for the Church in the...READ MORE
