Most religious groups have lost ground in the last 40 years. We Catholics, by far, have gained the most, growing from 19 percent in 1961 -- the same year John F. Kennedy took office as the nation's first Catholic president -- to just over 30 percent today: mid-2009.

Catholics make up a larger share of the Senate (37 percent) than the House (21 percent). That's the good news. The sad news is that Catholics are powerfully divided between Republicans and Democrats.

Good news: A Catholic Nancy Pelosi is Speaker of the House, leader of the Democrats, and a Catholic John Boehner is Minority Leader of the House, leader of the Republicans.

Sad News: Though both catholic, they fuss and dispute like bitter enemies: one may as well be a communist or a atheist!

Bad News: Quite a few of the Catholics in Congress are refused Holy Communion by Bishops and Cardinals including 2004 Presidential candidate John Kerry, for his strong Pro-Abortion views.

Pope Benedict XV, 1914-1922

Introduction of Roman Catholic Bible translated from Latin Vulgate:

“The responsibility of our apostolic office impels us to… promote the study of Holy Scripture in accordance with the teaching of our predecessors, Leo XIII and Pius X…

We shall…never cease from urging the faithful to read daily the gospels, the Acts and the Epistles so as to gather hence food for their souls…

[A]s ignorance of the Bible means ignorance of Christ.”

“In her belief in the Divine Authority and the perfect truth of the Bible as being the inspired Word of God, the Catholic Church has never hesitated, neither has she overlooked the fact that this message must lie sealed and silent to many of her children unless given them in her own language.”

WHAT DOES PROTESTANTISM OWE CATHOLICISM?

Protestants owe Catholics their Bible, from Catholics protecting Scriptures for well over 1,000 years, to the Latin Manuscripts, to Erasmus - who is deified by the modern King James Version crowd - who was a Catholic scholar.

Protestants owe Catholics the whole Right to Life Movement: as they have and do take the lead in all things "against Abortion'.

Protestants owe Catholics the still-lawful traditional marriage that does NOT include same-sex marriage.

Protestants owe Catholics their whole Christian school & home school movement. Had not the Catholics stood against encroaching government for 200 years there would be nothing but government Christian Schools today!

Protestants wouldn't even have the right to build churches, establish homes for unwed mothers, or senior citizens, had not the Catholics stood against encroaching government for 200 years!

Protestants wouldn't even have the right to use the Name of Jesus on TV & Radio ministry if Catholics had not the Catholics stood against encroaching government for 200 years!

The truth is, Protestants owe Catholics everything - from A to Z - so quit judging and condemning them and greet them as brothers & sisters in Christ Jesus!

Catholic Schools Struggling

BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland is considered the cradle of Roman Catholic education in America, but if that heritage is to endure, decisive action must be taken soon to address falling enrollment at Baltimore's parochial schools, the archbishop said.

For a decade, leaders have prayed the situation would turn around, Archbishop Edwin F. O'Brien said. But this academic year, enrollment at archdiocese schools is down 5%, or approximately 1,200 students, according to the archdiocese. That's the equivalent of four full schools and twice the average decline of the previous five years.

SURVEY: Iran and Alabama share religiosity

FAITH & REASON: Pope and Pelosi: Were they in the same room?

MORE: Pope says politicians must protect life

"To punt any further would be to lose the school system completely," O'Brien said. "It's obvious that some action has to be taken."

O'Brien recently gathered priests and educators to discuss the problem, and he'll introduce a committee formed to find solutions over the next 18 months. Leaders want most of all to avoid closing schools, but they'll also have to look at other painful options such as consolidation.

Baltimore, where English Catholics settled in the 1600s, was home to the first U.S. diocese, and was where in 1806, Elizabeth Ann Seton opened a Catholic school for girls. Seton, who was canonized in 1975, is credited with starting the parochial school system in the U.S.

The archdiocese's schools are facing the same problem as many Catholic school systems across the country, especially in the Northeast, said Mark Gray, research associate at the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University.

Catholic schools nationwide traditionally served immigrants who were concentrated in northeastern cities. As Catholics move to the suburbs and the Sun Belt, school buildings can't follow, Gray said.

In the suburbs and the South and Southwest, the problem is reversed with many Catholic schools not having enough seats for their growing communities, Gray said.

Another demographic shift affecting enrollment is a trend toward smaller families, which translates to fewer students, O'Brien said.

Historically, the work of members of religious orders kept costs low for Catholic schools, but now the staffs are mostly lay people and systems have to keep up with the costs of salaries and health benefits, Gray said.

The worsening economy has exacerbated problems, leaving families with less money to spare for tuition.

"There is a real concern about the future," Gray said. "Who are Catholic schools for if the average Catholic family can't afford tuition? It's supposed to be accessible to any Catholic family that wants to send their children there."

Ensuring that schools are accessible geographically and financially is key to increasing enrollment, O'Brien said. But Catholic school systems may find themselves reevaluating their missions.

"Our primary responsibility is to educate our Catholic kids in our tradition," O'Brien said. "But we also realize we have become kind of a refuge for others because of the state of public school systems in some areas. So we certainly have an obligation to the common good."

In the nearby Archdiocese of Washington, church leaders recently went through a process like Baltimore is beginning, holding a convocation on enrollment in October 2007.

One result was the fine-tuning of the archdiocese's tuition assistance program. Previously, the archdiocese helped needy schools balance budgets, but the new program aimed at retaining and attracting students means money can go toward an education instead of just paying bills, said spokeswoman Susan Gibbs.

The archdiocese spent $940,000 this academic year to retain 311 students and attract 238 new ones, and those families are paying $1.8 million in tuition, Gibbs said.

This academic year, Washington also took the unusual step of converting seven schools to a public charter group, which aims to maintain the high standards and values of Catholic schools without focusing on religion. Excluding the number of students lost through the conversion, enrollment in the archdiocese's schools was 2% lower this year.

The Diocese of Brooklyn and New York City announced just this month that they are considering a similar move, converting four schools with falling enrollment into publicly funded charter schools without religious instruction. However, state law prohibits converting religious schools into charters, so leaders will lobby to change the statute.

In Baltimore, parishioners know there will have to be sacrifices, but they don't want to lose their schools, O'Brien said. The archdiocese might have to take action before the committee completes its work, he said.
