The Players in the Holy Father's historic "Jubilee Journey"

    In today's editorial, we begin a multiple part commentary on the whole mess over the Holy Land that hinders the way for the Holy Father to complete his historic "Jubilee Journey" next year, retracing the roots of our Christian heritage. We point out how the Pope wants to keep this a spiritual journey, from Iraq to Egypt to Nazareth to Jerusalem he is averting any political significance to his pilgrimage. But it is politics, not religion that is holding everything hostage. For the editorial, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do" see CATHOLIC PewPOINT

part two

True leisure is not lazy

      They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"Never before have men possessed so many time saving devices. Never before have they had so little time for leisure or repose. Yet few of them are aware of this: advertising has created in modern minds the false notion that leisure and not-working are the same - that the more we are surrounded by bolts and wheels, switches and gadgets, the more time we have conquered for our own."
