The Council of Trent (Latin: Concilium Tridentinum), held between 1545 and 1563 in Trento (Trent) and Bologna, northern Italy, was one of the Catholic Church's most important ecumenical councils. Prompted by the Protestant Reformation, it has been described as the embodiment of the Counter-Reformation. Four hundred years later, when Pope John XXIII initiated preparations for the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II), he affirmed the decrees it had issued: "What was, still is."
As well as decrees, the Council issued condemnations of what it defined to be heresies committed by Protestantism and, in response to them, key statements and clarifications of the Church's doctrine and teachings. These addressed a wide range of subjects, including scripture, the Biblical canon, sacred tradition, original sin, justification, salvation, the sacraments, the Mass and the veneration of saints. The Council met for twenty-five sessions between 13 December 1545 and 4 December 1563, all in Trento (then the capital of the Prince-Bishopric of Trent in the Holy Roman Empire), apart from the ninth to eleventh sessions held in Bologna during 1547. Pope Paul III, who convoked the Council, presided over these and the first eight sessions (1545–47), while the twelfth to sixteenth sessions (1551–52) were overseen by Pope Julius III and the seventeenth to twenty-fifth sessions (1559–63) by Pope Pius IV.

John of Parma - John Buralli, the seventh minister general of the Franciscans, was born at Parma in the year 1209, and he was already teaching logic there when at the age of twenty-five, he joined the Franciscans. He was sent to Paris to study and, after he had been ordained, to teach and preach in Bologna, Naples and Rome. He preached so well that crowds of people came to hear his sermons, even very important persons flocked to hear him. In the year 1247, John was chosen Minister General of the Order of Franciscans. He had a very difficult task because the members of his community were not living up to their duties, due to the poor leadership of Brother Elias. Brother Salimbene, a fellow townsman who worked closely with John, kept an accurate record of Johns activities. From this record, we learn that John was strong and robust, so that he was always kind and pleasant no matter how tired he was. He was the first among the Ministers General to visit the whole Order, and he traveled always on foot. He was so humble that when he visited the different houses of the Order, he would often help the Brother wash vegetables in the kitchen. He loved silence so that he could think of God and he never spoke an idle word.
JC Niala loves people. She began her journey of working with people as an Osteopath & Naturopath and for the last 12 years has run a total of 7 practices on 2 continents where she has helped thousands of people improve the quality of their lives.
She also has a fascination for people’s stories and so, as a fourth generation working mother herself, interviewed over 100 women on 5 continents about their experiences.
She drew practical examples from these interviews and shared this with women around the world through her book “Beyond Motherhood: A guide to being a great working mother while living your dream”
Her book shares wisdom of working mothers and inspires others who may feel that it is but a myth, that it is possible to have the life that you imagined. The book has turned into a conversation with women (and men) during her webinars.
JC also writes and publishes children’s books and was invited to participate in the world’s largest children’s book fair in Bologna in 2014. She has recently re-released her enchanting book "Baby Elephant's Safari".

The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds welcomes two legends of stage and screen, Renee Taylor and Joseph Bologna as well as one of the most influential men in the New York theatre, Theodore “Ted” Chapin. Early in their 47-year marriage, Renee Taylor and Joe Bologna had a huge fight — a fight that ultimately led to a highly autobiographical, two-person show. “I told him to get out,” Taylor recently said in an interview. “So he started packing. But then I started packing, too. He asked me why and I said, ‘If you ever leave me, I’m going with you.’” Forty-seven years later Taylor and Bologna have established themselves as one of the major power marriages in entertainment. They both have distinguished careers as actors. Bologna has starred in movies such as “My Favorite Year and is probably best known for TV’s “Married With Children.” Taylor has appeared in “The Producers” and “Alfie.” She is probably best known as Fran Drescher’s mother, Sylvia Fine, on “The Nanny.” They have written and directed for the theater. Their first play together, “Lovers and Other Strangers,” was a Broadway hit that became a film, earning them an Oscar nomination. Their relationship is always at the heart of their creativity. THEODORE S. CHAPIN is President and Executive Director of Rodgers & Hammerstein: An Imagem Company. He is past-Chairman of the Board of Trustees for the American Theatre Wing. He served as a Tony Awards nominator for two seasons, and is currently a member of the Tony Administration Committee.
