  • Letter: Zimmerman more like Christ? Maybe he ...

    Regarding the July 18 letter: “What if Zimmerman acted more like Christ?” Maybe he would mentor black children for free? Maybe he would protest the police’s lack of interest in prosecuting a guy that beat a homeless black man? Maybe he would look in on neighbors who had been terrorized by home invaders? Maybe he would volunteer to spend time watching out for his neighbors? I would like to add that those are all things George Zimmerman has done. I didn’t just make those questions up off of the top of my head. Allan Dick, Estes Park, Colo.

    We continue our series of considering Catholic identity today by looking at Dorothy Day. Monday, I set the tone for the week by recalling the response of Flannery O’Connor to a group of erudite Catholics who thought the Eucharist was a great symbol: “Well, if it’s just a symbol, then to hell with it.” Then, I examined the counterfeit of faith known as civil religion. Yesterday, I looked at the Vatican new motu proprio regarding the Catholic identity of our charities and a different counterfeit form of Christianity, a reduction of the faith to a social justice ethic. Today,...

Maxwell, “Becoming a Disciple,” Ensign, Jun 1996,  12He who bore the atoning yoke has asked us to “take my yoke upon you and learn of me.” Indeed, the taking of Jesus’ yoke upon us is what constitutes serious discipleship.How grateful I am that we may rejoice in God’s great gift of immortality, unearned and universally given to mankind through the Resurrection of His Son Jesus Christ. “For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be...

    Manchester, NH: After testing his (2008 Presidential) stump speech Tuesday night, Senator Sam Brownback rose early on Wednesday for a tour of the cavernous chapel and regimental dining hall used by the 30 remaining monks of St. Anselm's abbey. Mr. Brownback, an evangelical Protestant turned Roman Catholic from Kansas who attends two services in the two faiths each Sunday is contemplating a big bet in resurgence of traditonalist faith.He came here to asses the potential for a Republican presidential primary campaign centered on opposition to abortion and support for God in public life, while back in Washington his current role...
