By: Larry T At a recent Scripture study class an older woman, a convert to Catholicism, frowned throughout the discussion of infant baptism, and finally snorted, "Man-made laws – not God's laws!" At yet another meeting my cradle-Catholic friends said they had never been accused of following man-made laws.

This Is Interesting: Kevin O'Brien on Charlie Johnston ABBEY ROADS - April 30, 2016 ... him. Nevertheless, Mr. Johnston has turned up in Catholic news once again, thanks in part to Kevin O'Brien calling him out. Mr. O'Brien makes a pretty good case that Mr. Johnston may be 'dissimulating' some facts about himself. Kevin O'Brien is an excellent commentator - he's always reminded me of Bill Geist, sharp wit, straight commentary - and funny. He writes well and is a great character actor. Although he's serious in his take down of Charlie Johnston - who now makes me ...http://abbey-roads.blogspot.com/2016/04/this-is-interesting-kevin-obrien-on.html

Cultural Identity Theft CRISIS MAGAZINE - April 20, 2016 ... martyrs of Otranto, they must wonder why they all didn't just convert. That would have been the sensible thing to do. In a contest of wills, who seems more likely to prevail? The young Muslims in Brussels or the young "whatevers" in Italy? I used the term "whatevers" because so many young people in the West are conditioned to go in whatever direction the tide is flowing. The two students in the class of twenty-five who went against the tide—who refused to consider ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CrisisMagazine/~3/9v3sbgOC6sI/cultural-identity-theft

The Titanic's Catholic Priest Who Went Down Hearing Confessions DA MIHI ANIMAS - April 14, 2016 ... Amidst all the tales of chivalry from the Titanic disaster there is one that's not often told.

A 42-year-old English convert, Fr. Byles was on his way to New York to offer the wedding Mass for his brother William. Reports suggest that he was reciting his breviary on ...http://salesianity.blogspot.com/2016/04/the-titanics-catholic-priest-who-went.html

Catholic parents, she warns, should watch with their children so that they can clear up any confusion. But then Kate spotlights what I found to be most unsettling about the episodes I've previewed: their calm acceptance of all beliefs equally. The series goes to great effort, Kate writes, "…to give all the faiths discussed (and that includes some ancient pagan ones) equal time and equal weight.

Living in Europe means an acceptance and respect for her Christian origins and history. Living in Europe means throwing off the backward cultural thinking of a religious sect forged in a seventh-century desert. To be European is to accept that which is ever ancient and ever new. All of these considerations were implicit that Easter when Allam publically rejected his former beliefs and ...http://pblosser.blogspot.com/2016/04/two-easter-vigils-two-popes-two-visions.html

RIP Mother Angelica CROSSED THE TIBER - March 29, 2016 This past Easter evening, Mother Angelica, foundress of EWTN, went home to the house of her Father. There is a fair chance I wouldn't be Catholic if it wasn't for this cloistered nun who started the largest religious broadcast in the history of cable. In 2002, my wife started watching EWTN when she began her journey to Catholicism. I was extremely unhappy about her interest in Catholicism, but I couldn't help but listen in from the other room as I heard stories of ...http://crossed-the-tiber.blogspot.com/2016/03/rip-mother-angelica.html

I grew up Lutheran but for all practical purposes, I was an atheist. I was received into the Church the year before. It was exciting. My faith was growing. I soaked up everything I could. That year, 1995, I was reading the Bible through in its entirety. I was on fire for the Lord and for the Church. And so today is a special day for me as well.

Mattox on the "gender regime" of this supposedly Catholic university : Working in my Marquette office one afternoon in the spring of 2010, I heard unusual sounds coming from the normally quiet lawns outside my window.
