Catholic CEOs band together for help in living out faith

Fifteen years ago, a group of Oregon Catholic CEOs decided they wanted to live out their faith more deeply at work and even apply Catholic principles to the way they run their businesses. 

With the help of then-Archbishop John Vlazny, they formed a chapter of Legatus, a national organization founded in 1987 by Tom Monaghan, a Catholic who started Domino’s Pizza.

Calm called for amid protests

In the days after the presidential election, many Americans felt disillusioned and took to the streets in protest. Most demonstrators were peaceful, including in Oregon. But some Portland protesters turned chaotic, and police made more than 100 arrests. 

Archbishop Alexander Sample, at a U.S. bishops’ meeting in the nation’s capital, sent a statement back to Oregon seeking calm.

“While peaceful protest and standing up for our own views have been hallmarks of the American experience and our First Amendment rights, some of these demonstrations have turned destructive and violent,” the archbishop wrote.

Bad Santa 2

NEW YORK (CNS) — As soul-deadening as its squalid urban setting, "Bad Santa 2" (Broad Green) attempts to mine laughs out of human degradation.

As he did in the 2003 original, Billy Bob Thornton's alcoholic safe-cracker Willie somehow manages to desecrate more Christmastime traditions than might seem possible.

Where do we go from here?

We have just been through what is arguably the most contentious and even bitter presidential elections ever. The level of discourse and the allegations flying back and forth were supremely disappointing to many of us. But the election is over, and a new president has been elected. We must accept that and move forward as best we can.

This event, the second annual “Pantaloons Rally,” was created to draw the attention of Portlanders — which it surely did. Signs asked commuters for help providing basic hygiene items like underwear for homeless and impoverished residents of the Old Town neighborhood.
