As you may already know, I announced last week that I added a new section on the site inviting youth leaders to ask questions and help each other out by providing helpful answers and insight as they are able.

One Man’s Amazing Journey Toward the Catholic Faith
Last edited 22nd April 2014

Richard Cole was not much of a believer: By his own admission, he didn’t pray, he didn’t worship. He was in recovery following years of alcohol abuse. Raised Methodist, he had fled the church of his youth to dabble in Zen, t’ai chi, New Age, witchcraft.

A plague of killer robots
Last edited 22nd April 2014

Killer robots are the stuff of sci fi nightmares. To speak of their ethical use sounds like an oxymoron. Their whole point is that they have no morality. But now killer robots — drones in an advanced stage of development — are a daytime reality. They will be autonomous in their operation, able to identify targets, track them down, work out the best way to destroy them, and learn from their failures — all without the need for human direction. These qualities do raise serious ethical questions...


Building a Relationship that Changes the World
Last edited 21st April 2014

I’ve been struggling and wrestling with this question over the last month now and it reached a climax when ten days ago, I put my wife on a plane to what is literally one of the world’s most cut off and inaccessible places. There is next to no reliable infrastructure and the mobile reception is patchy at best, with no emergency health care services if something goes wrong. Yet this week, at a point when I hadn’t heard from my wife at all for three entire days, I had an inexplicable peace. So am I irresponsible, indifferent or negligent? Am I a bad husband (I’ve certainly asked myself that!)? Or is there something greater going on here?


Good Friday at the Vatican - Homily
Last edited 18th April 2014

Pope Francis presided the celebration of the Passion of Our Lord in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome on Friday evening. The celebration of the Passion of Our Lord, also known as the Good Friday service, is the liturgy that recalls the crucifixion and death of Jesus. Fr Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher of the papal household, preached the homily.

Holy Thursday Homily of Pope Francis
Last edited 18th April 2014

Pope Francis preached an extemporaneous homily during the celebration of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, which was held at S. Maria della Provvidenza, a rehabilitation and long-term care facility in the suburbs of Rome. The following is an English translation of Pope Francis’ reflections on the Lord’s loving act of service, an act which the Pope himself imitated later in the mass, kneeling down to wash the feet of twelve patients of the centre.

Good Friday Meditations to Focus on Abused and Marginalised
Last edited 15th April 2014

The texts of the meditations for the Way of the Cross, which Francis will lead at Rome’s ancient Colosseum on Friday, have been written by Mgr Giancarlo Bregantini, Archbishop of Campobasso-Boiano in southern Italy, who has fiercely opposed the mafia in his writings. They were published today by the Vatican publishing house Libreria Editrice Vaticana.

If you are struggling because this Lent looks like it will end up like every other, may I make a suggestion?

Stem Cell Debacle Déjà Vu
Last edited 11th April 2014

Once again, a major advance in stem cell science has been tainted by allegations of fraud. A leading research centre in Japan, the RIKEN Institute, has apologised for “research misconduct” by a young scientist who had found an astonishing new method for producing pluripotent stem cells.
