• Roots of a remake

    It has been said before that slavery was America’s “original sin.” When you consider that it has been more than 150 years since the end of the Civil War and race remains an issue on just about every nightly newscast, it makes one wonder if there isn’t some kind of mark of Cain on us.

  • Let there be light

    I usually don’t watch the Stephen Colbert show on CBS. His act is a little too “inside” and smug for my tastes. I will therefore resist the temptation to lament the loss of greats like Johnny Carson and sound like the angry guy on his porch shaking his cane at the kids on his yard … too late.

And I have written about this “second” coming of the Dark Prince before and don’t need to waste any more ink or readers’ time with plowing a field that has already been tilled.

  • Springtime for you know who

    Here’s the premise. There’s a new television series where a troupe of intrepid researchers comb the far corners of the globe seeking to unlock a mystery that has plagued the public imagination for decades and prove once and for all the whereabouts of a legendary beast.

     

  • Writer Chris Brancato gives ABC’s ‘Of Kings and Prophets’ a new look

    Although ABC picked up the Biblical drama “Of Kings and Prophets” and prepared to go to series, the original pilot got a lukewarm reception from advertisers when they got a look at it in May. But the network believed enough in the concept — based on the Books of Samuel — to give it a second chance.

  • A 'most powerful woman' – National Geographic's major hat tip to the Virgin Mary

    Our Lady. Blessed Mother. Virgin Mary. Queen of Peace. Theotokos. Handmaid of the Lord. Mother Mary.

  • This Catholic nun is competing on Food Network's reality cooking show

The world as it should be

Archbishop José H. Gomez

Catholic social teaching gives us a vision of the world as it could be and as it should be. ... The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the most radical doctrine in the history of ideas. If the world believed what Jesus proclaimed ... every society could be transformed overnight.
