Creation, the Catechism, Evolution and Angels

Creation, the Catechism,  Evolution and Angels

My purpose in writing this article is twofold; in the first place to look at what the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) has to say on the subject, and secondly too see whether it is possible to throw any light on why there has been suffering and disorder in nature not only since the fall of Adam and Eve, as was once thought, but seemingly since the creation of the first living beings.

Social Media and the Anti-Contemplative Spirit

In his acclaimed new book The Power of Silence Cardinal Sarah states that contemplative silence is a silence of Adoration and listening by a person who stands in the presence of God.

Interview with Cardinal Gerhard Mueller

Interview with Cardinal Gerhard Mueller

Meeting the Prefect of the CDF does have an agreeable sense of drama about it – the opening scenes of a film. And the tall, rather imposing figure in a cassock with red piping fits the scene – ease and dignity as he comes through the double-doors into the vast high-ceilinged room. But the greeting is a warm and friendly one, the eyes are smiling, and somehow the conversation flows freely from the start.
