Backstage at the Lincoln Assassination: The Untold Story of the Actors and Stagehands at Ford’s Theatre

  • Description: Last week we remembered that anniversary of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln - April 14, 1865. A famous actor pulls a trigger in the presidential balcony, leaps to the stage and escapes, as the president lies fatally wounded. In the panic that follows, forty-six terrified people scatter in and around Ford’s Theater as soldiers take up stations by the doors and the audience surges into the streets chanting, “Burn the place down!” But there is an untold story - the forty-six stage hands, actors, and theater workers on hand for the bewildering events in the theater that night, and what each of them witnessed in the chaos-streaked hours before John Wilkes Booth was discovered to be the culprit. Thomas Bogar is here to tell that story.

Pope John XXIII: Overlooked in This Week’s Canonizations?

  • Description: Published in the 50th anniversary year of the historic Vatican Council II, The Good Pope by Greg Tobin is the first major biography of Pope John XXIII, a universally beloved religious leader who ushered in an era of hope and openness in the Catholic Church—and whose reforms, had they been accepted, would have enabled the church to avoid many of the major crises it faces today. Tobin offers a timely and important investigation into the history of the Catholic Church, and a celebration of one of its true heroes.

Strength and Solidarity at the 118th Boston Marathon

  • Description: Laurie Kearney, 47, of San Diego had already planned to run in the Boston Marathon for the 19th time before the terrorist bombs exploded a year ago — abruptly ending the iconic event with bloodshed, death and terror. However, she said the attack motivated some of her San Diego friends to qualify for this year’s marathon “as a show of strength and support that the bad guys weren’t going to take away this race.” At Mass in a nearby chapel after her run, Kearney thanked God that she and her husband had a safe race, there were no “major catastrophes” and that Meb Keflezighi, a Californian by way of Eritrea, won. We talk to Justin Bell of the National Catholic Register who reported on the bombing then and now

        • Tabor Life institute - The Tabor Life Institute is dedicated to the sacramental-liturgical worldview of the human person and of the entire created order. This is a worldview which in fact holds the answer to all of life’s questions precisely because it is the most honest and fully integrated vision of reality. The sacramental-liturgical worldview, therefore, has an immense capacity to liberate and to transform people’s lives, at times even instantly. Pope John Paul II’s theology of the body is the principle delivery system for this sacramental, liturgical worldview. Along with the teachings of Pope John Paul II, the Tabor Life institute incorporates the sum total of the spiritual wisdom of the Church both east and west, irrefutable science, personal testimonies, and common sense in presentations that are fully integrated and comprehensive. The Tabor Life Institute presenters come from both the Roman Catholic and Eastern Catholic spiritual and liturgical traditions. This greatly contributes to Tabor’s special capacity for fully integrated presentations of the sacramental-liturgical worldview. The Tabor Life Institute specializes in compassionately yet forthrightly bringing honesty, clarity and perspective to the most controversial and delicate issues related to the entire experience of human sexuality. Therefore, youth, disenfranchised Christians and non-believers are a particular concern and focus of our work. The Tabor Life Institute was founded in 2003 by Catherine Baranko who serves as its current President. We are also members of TOBIA, (Theology of the Body International Alliance.)

Alabama Supreme Court Opinion Rules that “Child” Includes “Unborn Child”

  • Description: Friday, in an 8-1 decision authored by Justice Tom Parker, the Alabama Supreme Court held that the word “child” in Alabama’s chemical-endangerment statute applies to the born and unborn. This decision follows a similar one handed down last year by the Alabama Supreme Court in Ankrom v. State, where Alabama’s highest court also ruled that the word “child” includes the “unborn child.” We talk to attorney Clarke Forsythe from Americans United for life about the impact of this ruling.

Earth Day 2014: The Papal Edition

  • Description: Pope Francis offered a homily at his inaugural Mass which centered on the need for the Church and its members to take up the vocation of "protector," inspired by the example of St. Joseph, for all of humanity and for creation. It means protecting all creation, the beauty of the created world, as the Book of Genesis tells us and as Saint Francis of Assisi showed us. It means respecting each of God's creatures and respecting the environment in which we live. The new Pontiff sees no conflict between protecting creation and the protection of each person. This Monday was Earth Day and today we talk to G. Tracy Mehan about Earth Day – The Papal Edition.

        • The Catholic Girl's Survival Guide for the Single Years - Three parts sexual license, two parts corporate ladder, with a dash of Monolo Blahnik. If a woman’s single years were a cocktail, that would be the culture’s preferred recipe. Alternatively, there’s two parts husband-hunting novena, one part weeping and gnashing of teeth, with a generous splash of "Offer It Up"—a concoction that makes for a more sanctifying albeit equally unsatisfying brew. Then, there’s this book. Equal parts fun and faithful, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide is chock full of practical insights on the nitty-gritty “how to” of the single years, helping women address some of the most pressing questions on their plate, including: Why am I still single? Is there any such thing as a “Single Vocation”? What is authentic femininity and what’s so great about it in the first place? How do I date as an adult without losing my sanity or my soul? Why shouldn’t I throw in the towel on chastity? How do I make decisions about school, work, and finances when there's no husband or babies on the immediate horizon? How do I deal with all my married friends and their children? And what does it take to battle the Single Girl Blues? As hopeful as it is honest, The Catholic Girl’s Survival Guide for the Single Years is the perfect companion for women whose journey to “I do” is turning out to be a longer one than they (or their mothers) would have liked.
