    With their court battles apparently exhausted, supporters of Terri Schiavo's parents said Sunday that they would take their efforts to Washington on Monday. The Rev. Patrick Mahoney, a conservative Christian activist who has become a prominent figure in the protests over Schiavo's case, said he will go to Washington to plead with congressional leaders and the Bush administration to enforce a subpoena issued March 18 by a House committee for the 41-year-old woman to appear before Congress. The conclusion of Mahoney's news conference Sunday afternoon was disrupted by a minor scuffle among protesters jostling to get their signs within camera...

    Cardinal Roger M. Mahony is allowing Catholics who want to celebrate Chinese New Year today to observe Ash Wednesday on Saturday. Both holidays occur today. "I hereby commute the obligation to observe fast and abstinence on Ash Wednesday," Mahony said in a statement released recently. Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, a 40-day period that ends with Easter Sunday. Catholics are expected to fast on Ash Wednesday and to refrain from eating meat every Friday until Easter. Mahony's office estimates there are 1.8 million Asian-American Catholics in the Archdiocese, which includes Los Angeles, Ventura and Santa Barbara counties....

    LOS ANGELES -- Cardinal Roger Mahony marked the start of Lent Wednesday by calling for the Catholic Church itself to do penance, in part for the abuse of children by clergy and for not speaking out "forcefully enough" against Nazi atrocities. Mahony, head of the nation's largest Roman Catholic archdiocese, made his comments in a message to parishioners on the first day of a 40-day season during which Catholics prepare for Easter by doing penance for sins and seeking spiritual renewal through prayer, fasting and good works. "As we begin the Lenten journey this year, it is crucial to face...

By Jean Guccione Times Staff Writer September 8, 2004, 11:33 AM PDT Cardinal Roger M.

    The state of Arkansas unknowingly helped the al-Qaida terrorist network distribute propaganda promoting violence against the United States. Laura Mansfield, associate director of the Northeast Intelligence Network, first noticed the postings yesterday while monitoring a forum on an Arabic-language Internet bulletin board frequented by al- Qaida sympathizers. The Ansar forum received notoriety for releasing the video of the beheading of American citizen Nicholas Berg in Iraq. From July 9 to mid-morning yesterday, a self-proclaimed U.S.-based al-Qaida sympathizer known as "Irhabi 007," or Terrorist 007, listed a large number of video and audio files for download by fellow sympathizers, Mansfield reported...

    WELCOME BACK! Recently you each received a letter from the GLO Core Team expressing concern about the presence of the Gay and Lesbian community within the St. Monica parish; to many, it had appeared that we were not making the presence that we had in the past. As a result, this letter invited everyone to make a sign of unity and attend the 5:30 mass on April 18, and everyone was invited to a small gathering in the Duval Center afterwards. The evening was a great success and over 50 Gays and Lesbians attended mass and the event afterwards. This...

    On the evening of November 25, an interfaith Thanksgiving service was held at Holy Angels Church (370 Campus Drive, Arcadia). The Blessed Sacrament had been removed from the tabernacle in anticipation of non-Christian prayer, and the sanctuary was piled high with fruits of the harvest (pumpkins and so forth). The organ prelude was "Good Christian Men Rejoice." Monsignor Norman Priebe, pastor of Holy Angels, mounted the pulpit and welcomed us as people of faith. He then left for the rear of the building. "To You O God, All Creatures Sing" was the processional hymn. Monsignor Priebe led the column of...

    Cardinal Secrets Hiding the truth in Los Angeles. Rarely do I find common cause with the editorialists at the Los Angeles Times, but when they're right they're right. In a March 17 editorial, the Times was harshly critical of the archbishop of Los Angeles for his continued obstruction of investigations into sexual abuse by priests. "When it comes to investigating priests accused of molesting children," the column begins, "Los Angeles Cardinal Roger M. Mahony is more aggressive than any other bishop in the country. At shielding priests, that is, not at safeguarding children from sexual abuse." The editorial came three...

Negotiations over the claims, they said, could yield one of the largest clergy abuse settlements in the nation's history.

    Hit and Run Liberals By George Neumayr Published 6/18/2003 12:04:00 AM Phoenix Bishop Thomas O'Brien's hit-and-run incident is a metaphor for the America Catholic Church under limousine liberals. It speaks of "social justice," then leaves a trail of victims in its wake. It calls for "responsibility," then shirks it with surreal cravenness. A carpenter is left to bleed to death while the bishop who hit him speeds away in a luxury car. This is an apt image for a liberal club that preaches a Christianity indifferent to Christ the carpenter -- a Christianity so flabby, secularized and morally empty that...

The order made it illegal for pro-life protestors to protest abortion within 20 feet of an abortion clinic. "If Mister Ashcroft wants to incarcerate an American citizen for simply reading scripture on a public sidewalk, I would find that most troubling, particularly in today's climate, where America is facing terrorist attack," he said Tuesday.

    In a six-month period in 1692, religion-fired mass hysteria resulted in 19 women being hanged in the Massachusetts Bay Colony town of Salem because a lot of little girls, writhing in the spotlight, accused them of being "possessed." When sanity returned to the colony, 150 others awaiting trial were freed and the 19 declared innocent of witchcraft. But they remained, nonetheless, dead. It was a classic case of the kind of mindless fear that too often results in death or character assassination. In Salem, it was death. In the Commie-hunting McCarthy era less than 300 years later, it was character...

The cardinal made the revelation in a three-page statement faxed to The Associated Press.

Mahony is believed to be the highest-ranking sitting church official to be accused of sexual misconduct in the scandal that has engulfed dioceses across the country...
