Truth, Beauty, and Goodness:
Signs of Contradiction to a Secular Culture

US/Russia/China Personal Report from Moscow

US/Russia/China/ relations are not very happy. I quote below from what Dr. Robert Moynihan, editor of Inside the Vatican magazine, wrote on January 3 and 4 from his retreat in a monastery in Manoppello, Italy, about a Skype conversation with his friend in Russia. He wrote, “I don’t know what to do.”

I say, let us pray the Novena in Honor of Jesus as True King for the intention of world peace and our protection. Jesus asked us to pray, “Protect, O Lord our King, our families and the land of our birth. Guard us, we pray, Most Faithful One! Protect us from our enemies and from Your Just Judgment.” You may copy and paste it from here.

Obedience Is the Answer to Ferguson Style Violence

As a former lawyer and judge, I believe that obedience to the law is the answer to Ferguson style violence. If there had been obedience to lawful authority, there would not have been any death and violent mayhem in Ferguson. The ripple effects of Ferguson’s violence continue to go out through the nation because of the alleged racism that led to the death of Michael Brown. The Catechism of the Catholic Church defines racism in its Glossary as “Unjust discrimination on the basis of a person’s race; a violation of human dignity, and a sin against justice.” Racism is a sin. Acting in self-defense is not. Officer Darren Wilson acted in justifiable self-defense against the assault of Michael Brown.

Why Did God Allow the Newtown School Slaughter

We are mindful of the victims, their families and the survivors of the Newtown School Slaughter. We mourn for them. We pray for them and for those children who must return to school with these horrid memories. This slaughter reminds us of “Rachel weeping for her children, and she would not be consoled, since they were no more.” (Matthew 2:18).
