As a Maryknoll priest during 2008, Bourgeois participated in a mock ordination of a woman and a simulated Mass at a Unitarian church in Lexington, Kentucky. The radical feminist group Roman Catholic Womanpriests staged the ceremony....

    Well, the media last weekend reported the latest instance of Oliver Stone being arrested for drug and alcohol charges in Beverly Hills. They found illegal drugs in Ollie’s car and arrested him for DUI. Oliver Stone had earlier been arrested in 1999 on alcohol and drug charges and, as part of a plea bargain, had at that time agreed to enter a rehabilitation program. He had been arrested for drugs before, the first time being when he was only 21. Now we know what you are all thinking, and that is that the media accounts of this could not possibly...

    NEW YORK — The head of the United Nations General Assembly signalled Friday a breakthrough is imminent in talks to resolve the political crisis in Honduras. Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann spoke in New York as thousands of supporters of Honduras’s ousted president, Manuel Zelaya, held rallies in the Central American country. “I have a feeling that we are moving in that direction rather quickly,” the former Nicaraguan revolutionary, who is also a Catholic priest, told a news conference at the UN. Insiders suggested that a timetable had been laid out in which Zelaya, a rich landowner whose leftist policies led him...

    WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Despite being threatened with excommunication by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Maryknoll Father Roy Bourgeois said he would not recant his belief that women should be ordained as Catholic priests. "There's nothing that Rome can do to me to take away the peace, the clarity I have on this issue," Father Bourgeois told Catholic News Service Nov. 12. "No matter what the consequences, I feel I am doing the right thing." Father Bourgeois sent a letter to congregation officials Nov. 7 outlining his stance on women's ordination and how he believes church...

    WASHINGTON -- Millions of American boys have dreamed of hitting a grand slam or pitching a no-hitter at Yankee Stadium because baseball's greatest have performed there. Talented musicians and singers aspire to New York's famed Carnegie Hall, for they know it represents the pinnacle of their profession. For gifted physicians and medical researchers, the Mount Everest of medicine is the Mayo Clinic. But certain institutions can bring out the worst in people. For the professional peddlers of anti-Americanism, haters of free enterprise, and true believers in global government, there is only one place that it really pays to perform: the...

    WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Maryknoll Father Roy Bourgeois will meet Aug. 18 with the three members of his order's General Council to discuss his participation in a recent ceremony sponsored by Roman Catholic Womenpriests.

These ceremonies have led to the excommunications of all involved because women cannot be ordained Catholic priests. Father Bourgeois, an internationally known peace and justice...

    NEW YORK (CNS) -- Six years later, the sound of fire engines brings Maryknoll Father Raymond Nobiletti back to ground zero. "Whenever I hear them, I have to stop and remind myself where I am," he said. On Sept. 11, 2001, Father Nobiletti answered an urgent call for priests from St. Andrew's Parish near the World Trade Center. He and two other priests from Transfiguration Parish in New York's Chinatown grabbed their stoles and holy oils and made their way through the sea of horrified people fleeing north. "The second plane had hit and it was clear that this was...
