• Strange indeed

    Whether it was guys wearing animal skins hunkered around a campfire or Boy Scouts out on their Jamboree, the ghost story has been a staple of human entertainment. Now, there is a lot of caution bandied about, as I have bandied myself, about the occult and how careful we should all be when approaching it for entertainment purposes.

  • Honestly funny – comedian Jim Gaffigan blends faith, humor in new TV show

    God and comedy clubs are not generally something most families throw together; then again, most families don’t create a cable comedy show either.

  • Excess baggage

    In its opening weekend, the fourth installment of the “Jurassic Park” franchise brought in a world-wide box office income of half a billion dollars. That’s billion with a “b.”

  • Tuning in to Jesus

    Say the word “televangelist” in a crowded room and you might just as well have yelled “shark” at the beach. The word didn’t always evoke such a near universal response of disdain … until Fulton Sheen.

  • The Devil You Say

    Lucifer is no laughing matter, though movies, television and pop music are saturated with various riffs on the Prince of Darkness. Not wanting to be left out in the cold — or heat — Fox television is launching a series with the Devil himself as the lead character in a weird kind of cop procedural show called — what else? — “Lucifer.” Talk about your ultimate “bad-good guy.”

  • Talk talk talk

    Trying to tell millennials about Johnny Carson is like trying to tell them about The Beatles. It only confuses them and reinforces the stark reality that as a baby boomer, I am well beyond the puppy stage.

  • Post mortem: The end of ‘Mad Men’

    After seven seasons over the course of eight years, AMC’s award-winning series, “Mad Men” has closed its doors. In a show filled with just about every vice and human failing known to man (and woman) all woven into the fabric of almost every character, I did not expect so many tidy endings to so many untidy lives.

  • These twin friars are taking it to the streets - and your TV - to save souls

    It’s a good thing Brother Angelus wears glasses, otherwise it would be really hard to tell him apart from Brother Innocent.

  • Big love

    There was a show on HBO in the not-so-distant past called “Big Love,” which followed the travails of a practicing polygamist in Utah. I think they got the title wrong and that I could have come up with several alternative titles, but I want to continue to write for The Tidings so I will refrain from such linguistic exercises.

  • Inspired by the divine

    For the second consecutive year, reporter Julio César Ortiz, (Univision Los Angeles-KMEX Channel 34) was awarded the prestigious Gabriel Award — sponsored half a century ago by the Catholic Academy of Communication Professionals — for his sports and human interest story, “A Saint on the Field.”

Habitat: Living out the Gospel call

Anne Hansen

The discussion over faith and good works has been going on for centuries:  Is faith alone enough for salvation, or is it necessary to engage in good works as well? The Catholic understanding is that faith and good works go hand in hand — an understanding based in Scripture.
