Posted by SCMO on 25th March 2005 in Christianity |

He describes this week's Parliamentary report on embryo research as a "development which would lead to even more destruction of human life" but points out that the MP's who prepared it will shortly face the electorate and should, like all candidates, be quizzed on life issues.  Cardinal O'Brien concludes with a call for the promotion of the...

...of major encyclicals or teaching documents, publishing 14 encyclicals, 15 Apostolic exhortations, 11 Apostolic Constitutions and 43 Apostolic letters.  Pope John Paul II also saw to the ongoing implementation of the Vatican Council s request for regular synods or meetings of bishops from all over the world. He presided at each one of these synods, some 15 in number, sitting through long hours of input from bishops, who had travelled to Rome, representing the views of their Bishops Conferences.

...ery first encyclical, he committed himself to carrying forward the ecumenical vision of Vatican II. He insisted repeatedly that it was the will of Christ that Christians work together for unity.  He reached out to other faiths. Think of his priority to renew relationships with Eastern Orthodoxy. And as recently as January of this year, he met with 100 Jewish leaders and called for renewed commitment to stronger dialogue between Jews and Christians.  The Chief Rabbi in Great Britain called the Holy Father s pilgrimage to the Western Wall, that sacred Jewish shrine, as one of the great healing moments of our time.  At the heart of all John Paul II did, was a...

Archbishop Gerhard Müller to deliver "Cardinal Winning Lecture"

Posted by SCMO on 13th June 2013 in Christianity |
...Pius XI s encyclical on Catholic Education, Divini Illius Magistri (1929), reflects the threat of the complete take-over of education by the State in a number of countries in which ideologies that deny or distort the dignity of the person, such as Communism, Facism and Nazism were prevailing.

Happiness both in this life and definitively in heaven, was to be un...
