Does Catholic Social Doctrine Allow Us to Say that bin Laden Deserved Death?
There has been much written on the issue of Osama Bin Laden’s death, but if you’ve been avoiding reading it all, Catholic Moral Theology has a nice reflection on the justice involved in these kinds of life and death decisions.

When Was the Word “Catholic” First Used?
To be honest, I’m embarrassed to admit that I thought the word didn’t come into use until after the Council of Nicaea in 325.

On The Universal Religious Sense
Last week, Pope Benedict XVI began a new series of Wednesday audiences dedicated to prayer. This follows his extended series on the lives of the Saints. I found this talk to be particularly enjoyable.

Notes from the Tilt-a-Whirl
I’m reading a great book right now that, in part, inspired this week’s blog post, A Little Wonder.... The link goes to the Amazon page for the book. The video below is a trailer for the book. It’s a randomly fantastic read… if you’re in to that sort of thing.
