Teresa Tomeo is considered one of today's leading contemporary Catholic thinkers and teachers. Here you will find her popular Eye on Culture column published through Our Sunday Visitor newspaper as well as her thoughts and reflections on issues of the day.
The Pope is back home in Rome safe and sound after his trips to Cuba and the United States. These are events Catholics and so many others glued to the TV or their computer following his travels will be unpacking (no pun intended) for months and even years.
After Pope Benedict’s visit to America, I downloaded the transcripts of his talks, as I wanted to remind myself what he had said, but also wanted to reflect upon it further. And so it goes with Pope Francis. While completely different in their style and approach, both Benedict and Francis brought and bring the world Jesus. They also remind us of our personal responsibilities: that once we encounter Jesus we all have to be willing to be more like Him, and do what we can to make a difference in our own way and in our own circles.
Experiencing the World Meeting of Families - Day 2
It’s hard to keep track of all the activities going on here at the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) but it sure is exciting, uplifting, and encouraging. Being in the midst of 17 thousand faithful pilgrims from all over the globe makes me realize once again that we are not alone and that there are an awful lot of us on the frontlines doing what we can to promote the faith, first at home and then out there in the parishes and beyond.
World Meeting of Families Day One: Set Up Day!
I arrived in the City of Brotherly Love late yesterday to be greeted by images and banners of the Holy Father everywhere; in the airport, on countless banners, in stores, and restaurants. There is great excitement for everyone whether they are local residents or attendees and it’s not just about the visit of the Pope which doesn’t happen until this weekend. Right now, it is the World Meeting of Families that is getting all the attention with the theme of the event being “Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive.” And you get a real sense of just how alive the Church really is as Catholics from all over the world begin to register and are very excited about the theme as well as the scheduled talks on a variety of issues facing today’s diverse Catholic family. The conference officially opens tomorrow.
As it says in the Old Testament Book of Esther, "for such a time as this," and what a great time it is to be Catholic. Given all the hits the faith has taken in recent months and years for being allegedly "out of touch" and "irrelevant" when it comes to things like the teachings on marriage and sexuality, you might be wondering how I can be so upbeat.
This week on my Catholic Connection radio program I interviewed Dan Gainor from the Media Research Center (MRC) concerning the coverage, or should I say lack thereof, on the part of the major broadcast networks and the powerful and shocking undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood.
It is something you always worry about as a street reporter: your safety and the safety of your crew. News is 24/7. It happens anywhere, and can place you in a variety of circumstances and situations: some of them exciting and glamorous, some routine, and some downright dangerous.
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards has been doing a lot of tap dancing lately trying to, of course, play the blame game when it comes to addressing questions regarding those very shocking and revealing undercover videos that continue to be released by the citizen journalism group The Center for Media Progress. Pointing at the accuser instead of looking in the mirror is one of the oldest tricks in the book when you’re caught between a rock and a hard place and have nowhere to hide. But the projection and deflection tactics are falling short, because the evidence against Planned Parenthood keeps piling up and so do those nagging questions.
Planned Parenthood es un negocio grande - un negocio mantenido por nuestros impuestos estatales y federales. Pero los impuestos no son suficientes para apoyar su codicia. El ser los mayores proveedores de aborto en el país no es suficiente. Ahora están vendiendo partes de los cuerpos de bebes. Aparentemente, corazones pequeños, hígados y extremidades son bastante populares en la comunidad de investigaciones.
Planned Parenthood is a big business - a business supported by the U.S. Government, state and local governments, and your tax dollars. But tax dollars are not enough to support their greed. No, being the largest abortion provider in the country isn't enough. Now they are selling baby body parts too. Apparently, tiny hearts, livers and limbs are pretty popular in the research community.
The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? How I wish, but that’s hardly the case; certainly not when it comes to trying to engage in a discussion on such hot button issues as the Supreme Court decision on marriage. These days truth is nowhere to be found.
Instead I feel like I am living with Alice in Wonderland, and walking along the street where the emperor is proudly showing off his “new clothes.” In other words, “Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.”
