There's only one source for peace and the world hasn't got a clue!

      In his column today, Pat Ludwa harkons back to the sage, simple advice of the first Franciscan Saint Francis of Assisi in the endless search for true peace and happiness. Pat cites other saints who knew that the simple equation of peace and true joy could only be found in following a humble Carpenter from Nazareth - following Him and emulating Him in all things, even to dying for when we die to ourselves we bring true joy to God Who in turn lights the path for everlasting joy with Him. That is the message Pat conveys today in his column Perfect Joy with Christ's Peace. For more, click on VIEW FROM THE PEW

Perfect Joy with Christ's Peace

The times may change, cultures may change, but the truths of Revelation and the Word never change nor do the dogmas of the Church

     On the feast of one of the first women Doctors of the Church Saint Teresa of Jesus, the Holy Father issued his 13th encyclical on the foundations of faith and reason entitled Fides et Ratio. Today we continue with the sixteenth part of this lengthy and important encyclical in installments spread out over several issues. The eighteenth installment continues the seventh chapter Current Requirements and Tasks focusing on the Current tasks for theology in which the Holy Father delineates the necessity of adhering to the truths of Revelation and the Incarnation in the overall foundations of truths that will lead to the ultimate Truth. No one can reason this without faith. For those wanting to read the entire encyclical, go to Fides et Ratio For the eighteenth installment, click on THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS.
