Who could have foreseen junk e-mail would become such a problem? While they do not take up much memory, they do fill up the inbox rapidly. Time to unsubscribe to some e-mailing lists...

The Wrong Approach

A Truly Catholic History of North America by Carl E. Olson

Recognizing the foundational Catholic roots of North American history, says historian Dr. Kevin Starr, author of Continental Ambitions, helps put away faulty narratives and negative stereotypes.

The author of Continental Ambitions: Roman Catholics in North America: The Colonial Experience probably identifies himself as a California; most American Catholics need to recognize that they are descendants of immigrants and act accordingly, but assimilating the local Anglo-American culture and protecting that culture and identity, instead of using their religion and Catholic Social Teaching to impose liberalism on their neighbors.

Bishop Robert Barron Reviews Silence

Scorsese's "Silence" and the Seaside Martyrs
My worry is that all of the stress on complexity and multivalence and ambiguity is in service of the cultural elite today, which is not that different from the Japanese cultural elite depicted in the film.
By Bishop Robert Barron

I have long been an ardent fan of Martin Scorsese's films. Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Goodfellas, The Aviator, Gangs of New York, The Last Waltz, Casino, etc. are among the defining movies of the last forty years. And The Departed, Scorsese's 2007 crime drama, was the subject matter of the first YouTube commentary that I ever did.
