The Pope and the President

The inspiring impact of two moral giants of our times

   In this weekend's editorial, we take a short trip down memory lane to ten years ago when the iron curtain came tumbling down. The architects were Pope John Paul II and President Ronald Reagan who, though no longer president in 1989, had laid the groundwork with the Holy Father, with Mikhael Gorbachev and the "Catholic connection" within Reagan's cabinet which included Dr. Alan Keyes, the only hope for continuing that connection and for righting America's slide into the abyss of immorality and perdition.

Events this weekend in Church History

    Friday represents the 43rd anniversary of the release of the encyclical Datis nuperrime by Pope Pius XII which dealt with the Soviets' invasion of Hungary and the tanks in Budapest. It is another example that refutes those who criticize Pius for being a weakling and not speaking out against tyranny.
