Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

Catholics "Personally Speaking" to air on NBC TV

The Cafeteria Is Closed is reporting that there is to be a program scheduled to air on various NBC affiliates (does not say which ones) that will look in depth at the Catholic faith grounding three "famous" people (Mary Higgins Clark, Nicholas Sparks, and Jack McKeon) -- it sounds pretty good! It sounds like it is something that was produced by the USCCB's Communications Campaign (!) and hosted by Msgr. Jim Lisante (I've heard good things about him!)

I remember listening to Relevant Radio one day and hearing Nicholas Sparks talk about the importance of his Catholic faith in his life, and was very interested in it, if a bit surprised. I have read a few of his books, and they are not exactly chaste (not necessarily on par with good ole' Fr. Andrew Greeley's dubious novels, but still, a bit, shall we say, "gritty"). I would be interested to hear more of his story, particularly his faith timeline. Mary Higgins Clark too I have heard about before but never in any great detail. The other guy, a baseball manager I guess, I never heard of (sorry sir!).
