The former Duke lacrosse player, through his attorney Michael Cornacchia of Manhattan, has asked top North Carolina officials to demand the resignation of Durham District Attorney Michael Nifong, and to order a criminal investigation into Nifong's conduct and the conduct of several Durham police officers.
  • Apparently It's True (Levada to be head of CDF?)

    It appears, based on very reliable sources, that indeed Archbishop William Levada of San Francisco is going to be appointed the new Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. This is not good news. Archbishop Levada is the prelate who compromised with the city of San Francisco over the city’s demands that Catholic Charities and other Church organizations provide “domestic partner” benefits to employees. His archdiocese is also a mess with dissenting priests, homosexual activists running all over the place, the University of San Francisco trampling the faith, and more. I’m really very surprised by this. I...

    7/17/2004 - 11:00 AM PST Bishop Vasa will deny Senator Kerry the Eucharist. He is no stranger to controversy nor does he shy away from defending Church teachings.

During this conversation, Bishop Vasa (pronounced Va'.sha) helped reinforce Church teachings regarding the scandal of the sacrilegious reception of Holy Communion by persons who obstinately persist in their manifest grave sin. In answer to the question, 'If the pro-abortion 'Catholic' Senator...

    The American Life League, based in suburban Washington, has a simple message for Catholics: You can't be pro-abortion and Catholic. To reach the faithful in the Northeast, where its research shows the greatest concentration of Catholics who say they favor abortion rights, the league has sent 12 college students on a "Crusade for Life," visiting cities and parishes from Maine to Washington. The students, who will be in the Philadelphia area fromWednesday to July 19, speak at churches, pray and counsel women outside abortion clinics, and speak to anti-abortion- rights groups. Their message - and their methods - may not...

    Boston College Magazine ^ | 11/03 | Mary Gordon
    Coming of age in the 1960s and early 1970s, it wouldn't have occurred to me that the kind of piety I rejected as simplistic and sentimental, the kind I associated with the Rosary, was precisely the kind connected with women. But it was mainly women who prayed the Rosary, women of two types: old women who wrapped the circuit of beads several times around gnarled fingers, or young women who wore Mary-like gowns to the senior prom and thought of spaghetti straps as the work of the devil. I was not that kind of young woman. Even in my most...
