    There are bishops and there are bishops. Indeed, the Diocese of Little Rock had four of them before a priest named Andrew McDonald came out of Savannah, Ga., to become the fifth, and Lord willing there will be many others to come after. Yet when people in these parts referred to the bishop, there was no doubt whom they meant. For the bishop would spend 28 years here in Arkansas, and many had known no other. Yes, there were bishops before the Very Rev. Andrew J. McDonald and there would be other bishops after him, but there was none like...

    “…that unborn child has been carved in the hand of God from conception and is called by God to love…” – Mother TeresaMountains are neither fair nor unfair to those of us who scale them. Those who resolve to make it to the top, do so step-by-step, with no favors from the mountain. I thought about this today while on an 8-mile mostly uphill cleat-clad run.

    “But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because Jesus said, ‘If you receive a little child, you receive me,’” said Mother Teresa. “So every abortion is the denial of receiving Jesus, is the neglect of receiving Jesus. It is really a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself.”

    The Imminent Abortion Legalization in Brazil: the Pope Has Spoken… That It Was Not Necessary to Speak! By Julio Severo The international media has been in frenzy about pope’s statements on homosexuality. Usually, when Christians speak about homosexual issues, the media do not forgive: the barrage of attacks is endless. I have been a victim of such attacks, and I have written many articles defending (Catholic and Protestant) Christians under such attacks. In the pope’s case, there were no attacks. Apparently, some of his words were misrepresented. But, overall, he was celebrated by the international press. I will not...

    Post Office Issues Mother Teresa Stamp, Will Buyers Remember Pro-Life View? The U.S. Postal Service’s issuance of a stamp in honor of the late Mother Teresa shows just how monumental a figure the diminutive sister was in 20th century life. Mother Teresa embodied Christianity in action—preferential treatment for the poor, tireless self-giving, a beacon of joy in the midst of the world’s darkness. But I just wonder how many people who purchase a Mother Teresa stamp will reflect upon her courageous pro-life stand? http://LifeNews.com/int1636.html

According to the Catholic League, Empire State Building officials denied the request. In an of itself, that might not spark a lot of interest for most people. What is interesting and frankly, disgusting, is that Empire State Building officials happily honored the 60th Anniversary of the Chinese communist revolution, last September.

Yet, "Mother" Teresa, and those who worked with her, never tried to convert to Christ the dying people for whom they cared. Instead, "Mother" Teresa declared: "If in coming face to face with God we accept Him in our lives, then we are converting. We...

Speaking to AsiaNews, Sr. Nirmala said, "The culture of life loves life and protects life, promoting love, beauty, joy and peace - says Sr. Nirmala - The culture of death destroys life and sows hatred, discord and unhappiness…..The choice is ours". The concept that abortion...

    GUWAHATI, India (CNS) -- The sainthood cause of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta could cross its last hurdle if the Vatican approves an allegedly miraculous cure a priest claims he experienced on the 10th anniversary of her death. Salesian Father V.M. Thomas says Mother Teresa's intercession was responsible for the disappearance of a half-inch kidney stone in his lower ureter, reported the Asian church news agency UCA News. The stone disappeared in an unexplainable manner after Father Thomas celebrated Mass and prayed to Mother Teresa Sept. 5, the day before he was scheduled for surgery. UCA News reported that Archbishop...

    Whenever I start feeling sorry for myself over personal attacks by my far-left media opponents, and those have been known to happen, I think of Mother Teresa of Calcutta. Here's a woman who devoted her adult life to helping the poor and sick in one of the worst hellholes on earth. In 1979 she was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and up until her death in 1997 she was revered around the world. A couple of weeks ago, Newsweek magazine ran a story by atheist Christopher Hitchens about Mother Teresa's crisis of faith, which she articulated in a number of...

    For more than a half century, Mother Teresa of Calcutta was revered for her service to the poorest of the poor, and inspired people by the joy she apparently derived from pure faith and charity. But earlier this year, it was revealed that her faith and happiness may not have been all they seemed. In a newly published set of letters written over the course of her adult life, she expresses terrible sorrow about her life, describing it in terms of "dryness," "darkness" and "sadness." For some commentators, this was evidence that, if we scratch the surface of religious conviction...

    We should not be surprised. Mother Teresa’s life and ministry was always a stark contrast to the prevailing Western culture that embraced her as its unlikely spiritual icon. So shouldn’t it also be true that in her recent spiritual autopsy, the torment of her soul would be uncovered? Apparently nowhere can we find a soft spot in this woman’s faith. In a world where feelings are the predominant measure of personal worth, Teresa learned to believe without them. In the book, Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light, some pretty shocking secrets about the “Saint of the Gutters” are exposed. A...

    Mother Teresa “lived a trial of faith, not a crisis of faith”Madrid, Sep 13, 2007 / 09:55 am (CNA).- In an interview with the Spanish daily “La Razon,” Father Brian Kolodiejchuk, author of the book “Come Be My Light” and postulator of Mother Teresa’s cause of canonization, said the revered nun “lived a trial of faith, not a crisis of faith,” and that she overcame it showing that the love “is in the will and not in feelings.” “Come Be My Light” is a collection of letters Mother Teresa written about various aspects of her life, some revealing that she...

    On February 3,1994, Mother Teresa came to Washington and gave a speech that left the entire audience dazzled and part of it dismayed, including a United States senator who turned to his wife after Mother Teresa concluded and said, “Is my jaw up yet?” It was the annual National Prayer Breakfast at the Hilton Hotel and three thousand people were there, including most of official Washington. The breakfast is always an interesting and unusual gathering in the capital in that it is informed by an unspoken goodwill and because famous people, usually political figures, are invited to talk about what...

    Cambridge, Mass. ONE morning in January 1997, I walked into my office at a nonprofit group here after a visit to my hometown, Calcutta. A very senior colleague, whom I would have, until then, characterized as being the “sensitive” sort, greeted me: “Welcome back. And how is everyone in Calcutta — still starving and being looked after by Mother Teresa?” At first I thought this might be a bad attempt at humor, but I soon realized that my colleague was seriously inquiring about my city’s suffering humanity and its ministering angel — the only images Calcutta evoked for him and...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., September 4, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - September 5, 2007 marks the 10th anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa. Now declared "Blessed," she continues to inspire disciples of Christ worldwide. My own interaction with her came shortly after I took leadership of Priests for Life. I asked if I could visit with her in Calcutta, and spent a week with her in June of 1994 discussing the new ministry I was leading, and the direction of pro-life strategy overall. Two events that had recently occurred shaped our conversations. One was the speech she had given in February at the...
