cmocb

-by George Vogt Opinion (MetroCatholic) – Many Catholic figures whom I have much respect for have been clamoring about the “scandal” caused by Ted Kennedy’s Mass of Christian Burial.

- by George Vogt Little Elm, TX (MetroCatholic) – I wrote this piece 2 years ago. With a few modifications, it is even more relevant today.

prolife

- by George Vogt WASHINGTON, DC (MetroCatholic) –  The statement and actions of the Attorney General with regards to Dr. Tiller’s murder is exactly why pro-life people and organizations around the nation have felt compelled to be so vocal in denouncing such an action.

Bishop Kevin Farrell - Bishop Kevin Vann

 by George Vogt Dallas / Ft. Worth, TX (MetroCatholic) – A few days ago, I received an e-mail from a very respectable member of my parish.

Steps forward, steps backward

- by George Vogt (MetroCatholic) – This past week has been marked by progress, challenges, and set-backs alike. The participation in the Roe v Wade Memorial events in Dallas has never been higher.
