Dangers to the Faith: Al Kresta’s Latest Book

book-small

“The great need today is to love our enemies into the saving power of Jesus Christ. How can we do that unless we know who they are? Many thanks to Al Kresta for showing us the field of our love with Dangers to the Faith. He treats mainly of ideas, but it is people who hold these ideas. Some of these may even have taken small root in our own hearts. Let us allow Christ’s love to root them out and then help us to be a sign of salvation to our whole world.”

Bishop Earl Boyea, Diocese of Lansing, Michigan 

A storm has been brewing in society and its treatment, views, and activities toward the Catholic Faith.

Some are subtle, others are more brazen — New Age thought, questionable spirituality, “creedless” Christianity, relativism, scientific skepticism, the triumph of technology, and even the self-styled spirituality of Oprah Winfrey.

All these masquerade as “truth,” making it tough for the average Catholic to Continue Reading

March 5, 2013

The College of Cardinals, meeting today for the 2nd day of the sede vacante period, have not yet set a date for their conclave to select a new Pope.

Briefing reporters after the morning meeting, Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Vatican press office, said that the cardinals were evidently in “no rush” to proceed with the conclave. He pointed out that the cardinals’ congregation had chosen not to hold meeting on Tuesday or Wednesday afternoon, suggesting that this decision underlined their intention to proceed deliberately.

During the daily congregations, cardinals have spoken about the needs of the Continue Reading

“Our problem isn’t in Washington; it’s in our parishes. Only if we first build the Church can we, will we, bless the nation.”

–Al Kresta

Al Kresta, host of the popular “Kresta in the Afternoon” broadcast on Catholic radio and President and CEO of Ave Maria Communications, is talking about the Catholic vote in the 2012 election. In November, according to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, forty percent of Mass-attending Catholics voted for President Obama, a self-identified champion of two intrinsic evils: (1) abortion, including partial-birth abortion; and (2) the redefinition of marriage.

Most elections don’t permit such black and white assessments. In this case, Continue Reading
