That was my reaction first time I heard the name of this place years ago. It was popular and well-frequented in some parts of the country, the food was good, the people extra friendly, but there wasn’t one anywhere near where I lived in Chicago. Times have certainly changed, but the reaction hasn’t.

‘God In Action’

That’s the title of a new book out by Francis Cardinal George. It’s also a recurring theme turning up in news and human interest stories, whether overtly or not…

Build a culture of life. Be a martyr if necessary.

“If we’re uncomfortable being Christians in a public debate, then we’ve already lost the war.”

Illinois lame duckers

They’re trying to get out of town or at least the General Assembly by Thursday, so state reps returned to the floor Wednesday night to race through remaining business. One of those bills was the controversial civil unions legislation. Apparently, all the fervor expressed in an outpouring of citizen appeals to legislators didn’t match the force exerted by party heavyweights on those legislators once it came time to vote.

Social justice with love

There’s been plenty of controversy around the issue of ’social justice’ in political news lately, which is only catching up with the longstanding controversy surrounding it in the Church world. Cardinal Francis George honors the controversial Fr. Michael Pfleger with an award....and tries to teach a lesson about justice and love and life.

Bishops: Fix the bill

Well-intended and necessary as health care reform is, just expanding government programs to make more Americans insured to access a government controlled industry is not enough to affirm human dignity and serve the common good. At least not as mandated in the newly passed legislation, say the U.S. bishops.
