  • Huffington Post re-defines
    Post by Noreen Daly, 11/16/2011

    “Earlier this year, the Huffington Post's Lindsay Dittman reported, in what at first glance appeared to be an attempt at humor, but the article on the "Most Radical Colleges" proved more of a joke than even its author likely intended. The article ranked my alma mater, Christendom College, as number 5 out of 9 so-called "radical" schools. ... ”

  • Why Vote Pro-Life?
    A Catechesis of the Catholic Church and the Political Process - Post by Bob Laird, 10/17/2011

    “I pastor friend of mine once told me that he's never had an original idea, but he takes all of his ideas from others. After hearing the homily at Mass yesterday by Father John DeCelles' of St. Raymond's Parish in Springfield, VA, I recalled that statement and realized that no amount of research and preparation could mimic his words. Father used the gospel reading of "Rendering to Caesar..." (Matt 22:15-21) to present a catechesis of the Catholic teaching on voting and our participation in the political process. It makes one think about and understand the genesis of the statement, "I vote pro-life!" and why every person who calls him or herself a Christian must internalize that statement and act on it. ... ”

Both were presented by the two priests assigned to St. Raymond's Parish in Springfield, VA on Sunday, October 2, 2011 - Father John DeCelles and Father Mark Pilon. ... ”

  • Time to Focus on Catholic News Sources
    Post by Bob Laird, 8/24/2011

    “As a cadet at West Point, each Sunday I was able to hear an outstanding homily from a young priest in the Archdiocese of New York. His name was Father Edwin O'Brien. He is now Archbishop Edwin O'Brien of Baltimore. Unfortunately, while I often went to daily Mass, I received my religion news from The New York Times. I remember vividly the day that Rev. Charles Curran published his treatise on Humanae Vitae in that paper even before a copy of the document had reached the shores of the United States. This all came back to mind as I read (http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/archbishop-new-york-times-cnn-msnbc-cant-be-trusted-on-abortion-faith?utm_source=LifeSiteNews.com+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=a72527a8d9-LifeSiteNews_com_US_Headlines08_24_2011&utm_medium=email) Archbishop Chaput's caution of using the secular press for news and especially commentary about our faith. ... ”

  • NFP Unveils the Truth about Personhood
    Post by Gerri Laird, 7/27/2011

    “Just when we think they aren't listening, some profound truth pops out! When our children were young, we always made it a point to sit up front during Mass - that is, until one Sunday when our youngest (age 4 at the time) jumped up on the kneeler just before the consecration and blurted out every word in perfect Latin before the priest even opened his mouth. ... ”
