Are we in the midst of a ‘golden age’ of the papacy?

  • Description: The recent canonizations of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II and the announcement that Pope Paul VI will be beatified in October have caused different reactions. Some feel that we have entered a golden age of the papacy, and others fear it is a time of dangerous self-canonization. Most of the popes from the last century are either beatified or being considered for beatification; only three deceased popes since 1878 are not candidates for canonization. Matthew Bunson, a senior correspondent for Our Sunday Visitor, discussed the issue in a recent article. Matthew joins us.

Iraq's top cleric calls for deal on PM by Tuesday

  • Description: Iraq's top Shiite cleric stepped up the pressure Friday on politicians to agree on Iraq's next prime minister, after incumbent Nouri al-Maliki lost the confidence of former allies in the fight against Sunni militants. The appeal by Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani comes as al-Maliki is fighting to keep his job, with even key patron Iran exploring alternatives in the face of Iraq's worst crisis since U.S. troops withdrew at the end of 2011. The conflict has drawn the Americans back to Iraq with special forces being deployed to help Iraqi troops. The U.S. also has started flying armed drones over Baghdad to protect U.S. interests in the Iraqi capital, a Pentagon official said Friday. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the new flights on the record. We talk with Dakota Wood who served as a Marine for two decades and is a Senior Research Fellow for Defense Programs at The Heritage Foundation.

Evangelizing Catholics: A Mission Manual for the New Evangelization

  • Description: You can't keep the faith unless you give it away. That's a fact. To be a Christian is to be an evangelizer. When the Catholic Church calls us to a "New Evangelization," that's simply a reminder to us of what has always been true. The good news is: you can do it - you can evangelize - and Dr. Scott Hahn is here to show you how. You don't need esoteric knowledge. You don't need to master a new set of skills. Evangelization, for Catholics, is simply friendship raised up to the highest level. Enter a deeper friendship with Christ, and you'll want to share his companionship more and more with a wider circle of friends. Scott joins us.

The Urging of Christ's Love: The Saints and The Social Teaching of the Catholic

  • Description: In “The Urging of Christ’s Love,” Omar Gutiérrez tells the story of eleven people who lived their lives in pursuit of Christ. Each Saint, Blessed, or Servant of God is considered in the context of Catholic Social Teaching. The end of each chapter features a prayer and quotes from the Compendium of the Social Doctrine of the Church, which help link the lessons we can learn from the saint’s life to Church teaching. By discovering new saints and rediscovering old ones, this book presents Catholic Social Teaching in an accessible and important way.

'High Stakes' Involved in Supreme Court's Pending Hobby Lobby Decision, Says Lawyer. Decision Coming in Next Three Days
