An Atheist's Last Stand: Jennifer Fulwiler's Journey to the Catholic Church SEASONS OF GRACE - November 17, 2016 "What was wrong with me that I had to leave a place that I loved in many ways because I couldn't be around religious people?

Evangelization in Modern Ireland - Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan CLERICAL WHISPERS - October 24, 2016 ... excluded any religious element to this new development. No church was allowed to be built. There was no need of God. In 1983 in Port au Prince in Haiti JP II called for a New Evangelization of the Americas. He called for this to begin in 1992. Why 1992? Because the first evangelization of the Americas took place after the discovery of America in 1492. Five centuries earlier the great Catholic countries were Spain, France and Italy. Now the great Catholic countries are Brazil, Argentina, ...http://clericalwhispers.blogspot.com/2016/10/evangelization-in-modern-ireland-bishop.html
What Would the World Look Like Without the Catholic Church? AGGIE CATHOLIC BLOG - October 13, 2016 ... What would our culture be like? Some might rejoice at this. In fact, this number is growing rapidly (see the link above). Some would mourn. Some would be indifferent.

Here are a few things that Church has given to the world: The Bible The University and the modern education system The Church educates 2.5 million children in the ...http://www.aggiecatholicblog.org/2016/10/what-the-world-would-look-like-without-the-catholic-church/
Accruing Our Heritage Transitus of St. Francis A FRIAR'S LIFE - October 4, 2016 ... Assisi. Then, I thought of all the wars [in the world]. Francis is also the man of peace. That is how the name came into my heart: Francis of Assisi. For me, he is the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and protects creation. He is the man who gives us this spirit of peace, the poor man … How I would like a Church which is poor and is for the poor!" So, again I ask, what's in a name? I once heard someone say that, "A name accrues its heritage." When you ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2016/10/accruing-our-heritage-transitus-of-st.html

Overcoming Apathy, the Killer of Souls and Destroyer of Civilization CATHOLIC CHAMPION BLOG - September 1, 2016 ... Civilization I have written articles on apathy and how it is probably the most spiritually dead state we can be in. Apathy, or what is also known as lukewarmness is what Scripture warns us about in Revelation 3:16 "But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, not hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth." As I said in an earlier article, those who think they can just meander about being "good" enough, are a large portion who will ...http://catholicchampion.blogspot.com/2016/09/overcoming-apathy-killer-of-souls-and.html
