The February issue of Catholic World Report is now online
The February issue of Catholic World Report is now available on the Catholic World News web site.
This issue's special topic was "Evangelizing Hollywood" and includes articles on The Passion of the Christ, The Return of the King, Therese, and The Matrix. John Allen's "Metaphor of the Physical" examines The Passion's impact as a piece of art. Michael O'Brien's "The Return of the Eternal King" examines The Passion and The Return of the King as two films take different routes on the path of evangelization. Steven Greydanus' "Mission Accomplished" looks at what final installment of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy accomplished and didn't. Greydanus also looks at "The Matrix Phenomenon in Perspective."
In other news, we examine Archbishop Raymond Burke's "Decisive Discipline" for pro-abortion Catholic politicians, "The Price of Loyalty" for underground Catholics in China, and whether the White House will make a stand on so-called emergency contraception.
Finally, Diogenes' close friend Father Andrew M. O'Really uses "Last Word" to sound the warning cry against the uber-conspiracy in the Church today.
