First Topic - Vatican Consistory: 22 New Cardinals
After elevating 22 new members to the College of Cardinals, Pope Benedict XVI told the new cardinals that to be a leader in the Church means to "preside in love." The Holy Father conferred red hats on the 22 new cardinals at a consistory on Saturday, February 18. On Sunday the new cardinals joined him to concelebrate Mass, and on Monday he held private audiences with them and their families. Joan Lewis has attended the ceremonies and reports from Rome.
Second Topic - Indivisible: Restoring Faith, Family, and Freedom Before It's Too Late
Many books have been written on conservative politics. Many more have been written calling Christians to holiness and spiritual revival. Few, however, have managed to combine a clear explanation of the conservative political perspective with its corresponding personal and spiritual virtue. Jay Richards tackles tough, controversial political issues facing conservative Christians today, including abortion, stem cell research, education, economics, health care, the environment, judicial activism, marriage, and others. Written to appeal to a broad spectrum of believers, he not only argues political questions from a Scriptural standpoint, it also provides simple arguments that Christians can use to support their beliefs in public settings.
