Pope Francis, the Holocaust, and abortion

We need to be reminded of lessons we vow never to forget.

Four popes, two saints: The soul of the global village

Sheila Liaugminas | 29 April 2014
In an age of skepticism or denial of the transcendent, there’s a mighty lot of interest in the pope.

JPII to Mandela: one great human being to another

Some people transcend tribe and nation, race and religion. They belong to all of us.

Pope Benedict’s retirement fatigue

Sheila Liaugminas | 12 February 2013
The man himself is clearly a tired and overly wrought servant who recognizes and admits his failing health and strength. The global coverage of his historic announcement to step down has unleashed an exhausting barrage of analysis, mostly from those who know not of what they speak.

Media’s role in world peace

Church and monarchy share calendars

Blessed John Paul II

Sheila Liaugminas | 15 January 2011

After he passed away and it seemed like most of the world converged on Rome to mourn the loss but also to celebrate a life that so touched humanity,cries of “Santo Subito!” went up from St. Peter’s Square. Looks like the crowds are getting their wish.


Religious restrictions in the name of freedom?

Sheila Liaugminas | 11 February 2010
This happened during the Enlightenment. Nations and states and societies with short memories, or the gullibility to succumb to revisionist history, are letting it happen again. Even where people are not losing their faith, they’re losing their rights to freely express their religiously informed voices. 
 

Sheila Reports promises a perspective here that you may not be getting in mainstream media and the politically charged blogosphere. Don’t expect political correctness, because politics doesn’t determine what’s correct. This space is grounded in the natural law and moral order. And it expects civility, goodwill and an openness to truth and reason.
