WASHINGTON — The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops expressed strong objections March 30 to the “doctrine of God” arising from the methodology employed in Quest for the Living God: Mapping Frontiers in the Theology of God, a popular textbook used in some undergraduate theology classes.

Asserting that its author, Sister Elizabeth Johnson of the Sisters of St. Joseph, a highly regarded Fordham University theologian, “employs standards from outside the faith to criticize and to revise in a radical fashion the conception of God revealed in Scripture and taught by the magisterium,” the 21-page statement issued by the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Doctrine defended the rare public notification as...READ MORE

In the middle of a dispute with a religious order operating inn the archdiocese, Cardinal O'Malley has stated he will do "everything in my power to care for the thousands of people who have given their lives in the service of the Church.”

BOSTON — Criticism of the Boston Archdiocese’s lay pension system escalated last week, first as a former chancellor called for an independent takeover, and then as mediation with an order of nuns suing the archdiocese failed.

The Daughters of St. Paul filed suit in December against Boston Cardinal Sean O’Malley and the pension plan trustees. They had tried unsuccessfully for six years to withdraw the pension money of 44 of their lay employees from the archdiocesan fund.

The sisters are an international order with about 135 members in the United States. They run a multimedia publishing house, Pauline Books and Media, as part of their mission.

The Daughters had planned to establish a...READ MORE

Blessed Miguel Pro is shown being executed by the Secularist and Marxist Mexican Government forces on November 23, 1927 A.D. at the age of 36 years old. Father Miguel Pro S.J. became another victim of the government crackdown on all Catholic Church activities. At the moment the guns were fired at his execution, Blessed Miguel Pro yelled out "Viva Cristo Rey!", which roughly translates into English as "Long Live Christ the King!"

A new survey suggests that Catholics favor same-sex "marriage," but critics such as Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland, Calif., advise caution. Bishop Cordileone, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage, says, “The track record shows that polling data on this issue is not all that reliable. In state after state where this has been voted on by the people, the activists have cited polling data in their favor — but they have not won an election once."

WASHINGTON — Recent headlines trumpeting Catholic support for “gay rights” suggest that the faithful reject Church teaching. But critics allege that the latest opinion research is part of a political strategy to promote same-sex “marriage” and should not be trusted.

When the Washington, D.C.-based Public Religious Research Institute published polling data on what they termed “Catholic attitudes on gay and lesbian issues,” the media jumped on the striking numbers. The Institute’s report, subtitled “A Comprehensive Portrait from Recent Research,”
was released in late March. Despite competition from the military crisis in Libya and Japan’s tsunami tragedy, PRRI’s study drew immediate media...READ MORE
