Number 51:

Father Ken Roberts

Dynamic priest in the mold of Archbishop Sheen suffers suppression like Blessed Padre Pio

    Today we bring you the 51st person selected out of the TOP 100 CATHOLICS OF THE CENTURY. The voters chose Father Ken Roberts, the inspirational English-American priest of 34 years who, at the age of 68, now must bide his time without the privilege of preaching or performing the sacraments. It is the heaviest of crosses he has had to carry throughout a life filled with crosses. But always, he remains obedient to the Church and knows that in God's time he will be exonerated and free to resume his priestly duties for the honor and glory of God just as Blessed Padre Pio survived his suppression in obedience.

Is John Paul II a troubled Pope or is PBS trying to make trouble?

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa refutes the one-sided two-and-a-half hour PBS special aired Tuesday night on Pope John Paul II titled Pope John Paul II: The Millennial Pope. The program was a travesty to every Catholic and could very well have been written and produced by a coalition from Planned Parenthood, the militant Jewish League in Los Angeles, Catholics for a Free Choice, Call To Action, and a liberal Jesuit dissident who cannot let go of liberation theology. It was so far left it reeked of propaganda against the Vicar of Christ, carefully couched in unsubstantiated accusations that left the viewer believing the lies. Rather than being an objective overview of the "Millennial Pope" it should have been called "Minimizing the Pope." That's truth in advertising which PBS failed badly just as they failed miserably in portraying the true essence of the man until the final fifteen minutes when they tried to justify all the bad-mouthing with the only truth of the program - the strong, undying faith of a humble and obedient man who is the shepherd for one billion people and considers himself the humble "servant of the servants."

"The harvest indeed is great, but the laborers are few. Pray therefore the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest. Go. Behold, I send you forth as lambs in the midst of wolves."
