Catholicism

Though the relationship between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism has long been marked with animosity, the past two decades have seen the two groups move to a better understanding of the other—and in some cases, collaborate together. The 1994 formation of Evangelicals and Catholics Together, led by evangelical Chuck Colson and Catholic Richard John Neuhaus, was key in this process. In more recent memory, Catholics and Protestants have united in the political arena to bring joint concerns about healthcare (specifically the contraception mandate) and religious liberty to light.

  • Chinese Catholic Church Flourishing
    There were no churches being torn down in the North China provinces I visited, but there were certainly churches being built. The thousands of churches that were torn down or confiscated on Party orders during the fifties and sixties have nearly all been rebuilt or refurbished, often with foreign donations. This includes the parish church at Dongergou in Shanxi province that I visited, where Masses have been held continuously for more than 220 years.
  • Uganda: 'Pentecostal' Priest Upsets Catholic Church, Tranferred
    A group of Ugandan Christians are seething after the archbishop of Kampala transferred a priest. Fr Kibuuka, a young priest ordained in 2008, last year started charismatic prayer sessions in the Lubaga Nursing School, a stone's throw away from the cathedral, which attracted huge crowds, on Sunday afternoons. These prayer sessions reportedly attracted non-Catholics, including Muslims, coming from as far as Jinja, Masaka and Mukono districts. This was after some believers claimed that Kibuuka worked miracles.
