Pell: Young People Know Nothing About the Faith

Hat tip to Amy Welborn here for this piece from Cardinal Pell from Austrailia: Catholic Youth in Danger Pell points out that most young people do not know their faith or are, at the very least, confused by it. The real irony here is that we have the MOST theologically educated laity at this point […]

Paulists Launch The Catholic World

A new internet retrieval has sprung from my bosses! The Catholic World Online is an internet journal at the intersection of faith and culture in North America. A project of the Paulist Fathers which once was an actual paper magazine that Paulist founder Isaac Hecker started, has the online magazine covering the issues from a […]

Rudy Giuliani strikes a chord for balance

Rudy Giuliani stands up for Clinton…and states the obvious about whose fault 9-11 was. Good job outta him. From the AP: “The idea of trying to cast blame on President Clinton is just wrong for many, many reasons, not the least of which is I don’t think he deserves it,” Giuliani said in response to […]

Fr. Roderick: Catholic Insider

Fr. Roderick from Daily Breakfast and Catholic Insider podcasts came by (all the way from The Netherlands!) yesterday. The guy’s got all the enthusiasm of a four year old child. An incredibly nice man. I was running late yesterday and found him on the street videotaping some of his famous “soundscaping” features (think walking tour). […]

Terrell Owens: Suicide?

I wonder what the real story here is? Some conspiracy theories that have been floated thus far: 1) He took steriods and had to flush it out of his system before a urine test (that’s the most interesting one–thus far). 2) His story just as he said it. He mixed cortizone and supplements and had […]

Go Keith Go

Similarly, I thought President Clinton had an accuarate view of the media distortion that has gone on with 9-11. Olbermann sums up nicely here on this very issue. http://feeds2.feedburner.com/GooglingGod

Sirus Update

The launch of the Catholic Channel was delayed slightly…or at least the talk portion of the channel has been delayed. The channel did launch with things like Motzart’s Requiem being played–a nice touch, even if the station will have a much different feel once the “talk” portion debuts…or at least that’s my sense of things. […]

Dave Dwyer and I (pictured, above with Archbishop Michael Sheehan of Sante Fe, Archbishop George Niederhauer of San Francisco and Bishop Jaime Soto of Orange, CA) have agreed to a deal with the Archdiocese of New York and Sirius Satellite radio to do a radio show on Sunday nights […]

Memories of 9-11

As a NYer I remember all too well the tragic events of 9-11. Fortunately for me, I had a doctor’s appointment in my home borough of Queens that day and was not on Manhattan Island. My wife was on Queen’s Western tip in Long Island City and had a classroom that had a direct view […]

Wikapediaing God

The number two google result for God leads us to Wikipedia…where you get a general definition of God as a supreme deity. Karl Rahner defined God as the “inexhaustible one.” The “question which has no answer.” As much as we try to find out about God (through wikipedia, or Google, or other sources) we never […]
