SORT BY Relevancy
As an dedicated pro-peace activist, I frequently encounter anti-war proponents who have the idea that religion is at the heart of most wars. They cite the Crusades, the sectarian violence in the Mideast and "religious" riots in Myanmar, India, Bangladesh and elsewhere.
What they do not recognize is that religion is not the problem. Abuse of people's faith in religious leaders is. It is one thing to put your trust in God, but if you trust any leaders to tell you what God wants you are going to find that those who seek power will often abuse this trust. It doesn't matter if they are priests or politicians, imans or idolators praying at the altar of corporate profits.
With some 80% of Americans and most of the rest of the world professing belief in some sort of God, it is foolish and short-sighted to demonize the faith of the majority of people who we need to build a united international front against fascism and war. War was outlawed by the Kellogg-Briand treaty only because religious leaders put aside differences to work together with secular groups and individuals in the common cause of peace. That is a lesson we all must learn from.

This week Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from Cunard’s flagship, the R.M.S. Queen Mary 2, or QM2. This is a Transatlantic ocean liner, and the only liner in service between South Hampton and New York. Equal in height to a 23-story building and nearly four football fields in length, QM2 is unmatched in her class and is the last such liner to be built since 1969. But don’t let her size fool you. A Transatlantic crossing is a luxurious experience for reasons that go beyond the obvious.
Richard Meadows, President of Cunard North America, stops by to expound on why an on-board experience is unforgettable and Commodore Ronald Warwick talks about his 36 years with Cunard and his favorite ports. There’s all of this and more on this week’s episode of Travel Today with Peter Greenberg.

In the year 1214 Saint Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers, was in anguish because he was failing in his attempt to convert the Albigensian Cathar heretics. St. Dominic attributed this to the deepness and gravity of sinfulness of the heretics and the poor example of Catholics. He went alone in to the forest and wept and prayed continuously for three days to appease the anger of Almighty God. He flogged his body and scourged his flesh. From the fasting, pain, and exhaustion, he passed in to a coma.
St. Dominic experienced an apparition of Blessed Mother Mary while in the coma, which forever links Saint Dominic and the Rosary. The Immaculate Mary with three angels appeared and asked St. Dominic, “Dear Dominic, do you know which weapon the Blessed Trinity wants to use to reform the world?” Dominic’s response was Blessed Mary knew better than he because she is a part of our salvation.
Mary responded, “I want you to know that, in this kind of warfare, the battering ram has always been the Angelic Psalter* which is the foundation stone of the New Testament. Therefore if you want to reach these hardened souls and win them over to God, preach my Psalter.”
