CUA’s Rome Expansion, Emphasis on Catholic Identity Draws Praise from Cardinal Pell
3/23/2015
Vatican official Cardinal George Pell recently praised the collaborative efforts between The Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, D.C., and the Australian Catholic University (ACU), as the institutions prepare to open a joint study-abroad center in Rome, according to the National Catholic Register. The Center will reportedly help CUA expand its study abroad program and encourage a true understanding of Catholic identity and education.

The three-continent partnership between the Universities, which The Cardinal Newman Society reported in January, created The Rome Center of The Catholic University of America and the Australian Catholic University, an institution “dedicated to Catholic education,” the Register reported.

Studying in Rome can be immensely significant in the formation of students as “Rome has much to offer, humanly and religiously,” Cardinal Pell, a former ACU board of trustees chairman and current prefect of the Vatican’s Secretariat of Economy, reportedly stated. “I wish the organizers every success for the years ahead. It is another fine example of American-Australian cooperation.”


‘Right Thing to Do’: Sens. Cruz, Lankford Make Last-Ditch Effort to Protect D.C. Religious Schools
3/20/2015
With only three weeks remaining for Congress to overturn two Washington, D.C., laws that violate the religious freedom of Catholic schools and colleges—as well as other religious and pro-life organizations—Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and James Lankford of Oklahoma have done the “right thing” by introducing joint resolutions this week, said The Cardinal Newman Society’s Bob Laird.

The District’s Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Amendment Act (RHNDA) and the Human Rights Amendment Act (HRAA) were signed into law by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser in January, despite significant concerns by The Cardinal Newman Society, The Catholic University of America, the D.C. Catholic Conference, and Washington Cardinal Donald Wuerl. Several other D.C.-based organizations—both religious and pro-life—have called on Congress to protect their constitutional rights to religious practice and free speech.


Catholic Schools Must Place Learning in Light of Christ, Says President of Austrian Catholic College
3/18/2015
Dr. Christiaan Alting von Geusau, the president of the International Theological Institute (ITI) in Trumau, Austria, recently wrote an article for Plough magazine, titled “What’s the Point of Christian Education: Preparing Children for the Freedom – and Cost –of Discipleship”. In it he discussed faithful education and explained how stories of persecution and martyrdom can teach children critical lessons.*****Stories of Christian martyrdom show children “the reality of what it means to be a Christian in today’s world” and communicate lessons of discipleship, faithfulness, and formation, argued Alting von Geusau, who also founded the Schola Thomas Morus high school in Austria.

“[W]e must foster in children the desire to pursue the truth with a listening heart, one that applies reason and is guided by a living faith,” Alting von Geusau, asserted in his piece. “Our families, our schools, and our churches should all be places where children receive this kind of formation – an education that sets all we learn and do in the light of Christ.”

Discipleship is primarily a friendship with Christ that serves as a foundation for the rest of one’s life, he explained. Through this relationship students can learn to see others as Christ sees them and to develop virtuous human friendships.
