Elizabeth Arabella Rose Ray

Daughter-in-law Anna gave birth to Elizabeth Arabella Rose Ray tonight! That will make Number 8, and the third grand-daughter.

(Man, am I glad its not me! I used to think men were tough until I watched my wife give birth to our first — then I knew who was tough!)

Review of “Being Catholic Now”

by Steve Ray on June 10, 2009

screen-capture-81Kerry Kennedy, daughter of Senator Robert Kennedy, recently published a book of essays by leading American “Catholics” on their experience as Catholics over the last few decades.

Many of them are liberal “Catholics” with an obvious lack of Catholic formation. However there are others like Tom Monaghan. The title of the book is Being Catholic Now published by Crown.

Dr. Francis Beckwith, new revert to the Catholic Church, has written a very excellent review of the book which was just published in the June 2009 issue of the Catholic World Report. It is well worth reading. It will help you understand the problem we have with liberal Catholic politicians and those who have caved in to the tyranny of relativism yet still want to call themselves Catholic.
