Jean Danielou - Participation   - As the writer observes, Vatican II called on the laity to take a more active part in the liturgy, as in other functions of the body of Christ. Their customary passivity was not consistent with their dignity, nor with their responsibility to participate in the Church's mission.
Norman Cardinal Gilroy, Archbishop of Sydney - The Magisterium of the Vicar of Christ -  Here is described the great benefit to the Church of the Pope's magisterium, and the obligation to assent, not only when he speaks ex cathedra. "A loyal Catholic does not seek to distinguish between the different modes by which the Pope exercizes his teaching authority before making up his mind whether he will accept the teaching or not."

First Things June/July 1999
  Former federal judge and scholar Robert Bork writes of 16th-century figure Thomas More, whose recent popularity he attributes to More's life in relation to today. He stood courageously for piety in a culture war much like our own. View this article at:
