NEW YORK ENCOUNTER 2018 -- The events at the New York Encounter are not beautiful simply in and of themselves. They are beautiful because they show us something.

Why this priest isn’t afraid of Christianity’s waning influence

With Catholic proposals to literally head for the hills in response to Christianity's ever-lessening influence in secular culture, the leader of a global ecclesial movement has a provocative statement: This is actually a great time for the Church. “As a matter of fact,” says Father Julian Carrón, “it is a precious occasion to verify the validity of the Christian proposal.” [ 1,963 more word ]

Luigi Giussani Series on Faith & Modernity

What does it mean to say that Christianity is an encounter? For those of us who have spent many years in the Movement, these words can perhaps lose their flavor, their richness, becoming a dreaded cliché. And yet, at the second annual Luigi Giussani series on Faith & Modernity, we heard from two witnesses who brought them back to life for us in a way that was fresh and new. [ 989 more words ]

Part II of yesterday's CRUX interview with Julián Carrón

Father Julián Carrón, leader of the Catholic movement Communion and Liberation, is in favor of de-emphasizing the wars of culture, not because the Church’s traditional positions are wrong, but because starting with ethics was always the wrong way to present Christianity to the world.

'If you don't think Francis is the cure, you don't grasp the disease,' CL head says

Although some Catholics, especially the more conservative sort, often find Pope Francis a bit of a shock to the system, the leader of the Church's influential Communion and Liberation movement says that if you don't think this pontiff is the cure, then you don't understand the nature of the disease…

Fr. Tiboni: a man of faith in front of the world

Dearest friends, Father Tiboni has given us an example of what faith is: the loving recognition of a Presence and the passion to communicate it to everyone. This was his true greatness, and all the beautiful works that he accomplished are its fruit. As Father Giussani wrote to him in 2000: “Your existence is a moving testimony of the desire for Christ to be known by every man, lived in the circumstances as an abandonment and an obedience that renews the ‘yes’ of Mary, to which you taught us to consecrate ourselves at every moment.
