"What was the saddest moment of your life?"
"When my mother died."
"What was your mother’s best quality?"
"How do you say in English—she always flew straight. Sometimes it makes your life much easier to go a little to the left, or a little to the right. She was a Catholic in communist Poland and it was not good to be a Catholic during that time. Especially because she was a teacher. It was very difficult for her, to be a Catholic and raise three children. It would have been much easier for her to join the Communist Party. But she never did.”

Figure skater Tara Lipinski always wears a gold medal.
Not the one she won at the 1998 Olympics, but a medal of St. Thérèse of Lisieux, which was given to her by the Rev. Vince Kolo, a Catholic priest from Pittsburgh.
Lipinski believes St. Thérèse has guided her life since 1994, when she first prayed to the saint known as the Little Flower.
"I know that, without her, I could never have done anything at the Olympics. Not that she made me win, but she gave me the faith to believe that there was someone who would keep me calm and help me through, no matter what happened," Lipinski said.

Washington, D.C. Field trips for the “flying nun” pre-flight class, including inspection tours of hangars at the Washington National Airport. Here, Sister Aquinas is explaining engine structure to her students (LOC) by The Library of Congress on Flickr.
Sister Mary Aquinas gained national fame as a pilot and teacher of aeronautics. The sister, whose family name was Kinskey, was born in Zanesville, Ohio. She entered the convent in 1911. Her teaching of aerodynamics to military personnel and a television play about her life brought her national attention.
Sister Aquinas became a licensed pilot in Manitowoc and taught aerodynamics and meteorology at a high school in Ironwood, Mich., in 1942. She later taught aviation and aeronautics at Catholic University in Washington.
In 1957, she was the subject of a television play, ”The Pilot.” The play was later the basis for a series, ”The Flying Nun,” starring Sally Field.
Sister Aquinas was honoured in 1957 by the Air Force for outstanding achievements for world peace and national security. She died aged 91, on a Sunday in 1985 at Holy Family Convent, where she had retired in 1977 after a stroke.
Sister Mary Aquinas Kinskey, OSF, earned a bachelor’s degree from Catholic University in 1926. She became a teacher and her interest in aviation stemmed from the enthusiasm for the subject from her students. In order to best teach her students, she wished to learn as much about the subject as possible. In 1942, she earned a Master of Science in Physics cum laude from the University of Notre Dame. Her dissertation was entitled “Electron Projection Study of the Deposition of Thorium on Tantalum.” Wanting hands-on aviation experience, Sister Mary Aquinas learned to fly in 1943.
In 1957, “the Air Force Association gave her a citation for her ‘outstanding contributions’ to the nation’s security and world peace” [“No Glamor Girl”]. As part of the honor, Sister Mary Aquinas had the opportunity to fly in a T-33 jet trainer and take the control for much of the flight, making her the first nun to fly a jet.

Blessed Martin Martinez Pascual, priest executed during the Spanish Civil War at the age of 25. When he was asked if he would like to face away from the rifles during his execution, he said no, all he wanted to do was bless those who killed him and pray that God would not hold his death against them. Then he shouted VIVA CRISTO REY!
Right before being shot, he smiled for the photographer, who took this last picture of him. In his eyes, one sees the courage and joy of a faithful priest.
Jules Gabriel Verne (February 8, 1828 – March 24, 1905) was a French author who pioneered the science fiction genre. He is best known for his novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before air travel and practical submarines were invented, and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the second most translated author in the world. Some of his books have also been made into live-action and animated films and television shows. Verne is often referred to as the “Father of Science Fiction”, a title sometimes shared with Hugo Gernsback and H. G. Wells.
One of the most important changes his publisher Hetzel enforced on Verne was the adoption of optimism in his novels. Verne was in fact not an enthusiast of technological and human progress, as can be seen in his works created before he met Hetzel and after Hetzel’s death.
In 1863, Jules Verne wrote a novel called Paris in the Twentieth Century about a young man who lives in a world of glass skyscrapers, high-speed trains, gas-powered automobiles, calculators, and a worldwide communications network, yet cannot find happiness and comes to a tragic end. Hetzel thought the novel’s pessimism would damage Verne’s then-booming career, and suggested he wait 20 years to publish it. Verne put the manuscript in a safe, where it was discovered by his great-grandson in 1989. It was published in 1994.
With no less dexterity, and, it must be said, with no greater regard to accuracy, then that displayed by Dumas in his adaptation of history to the whims and fancies of story-telling, he brought science into the realm of fiction, and whatever may be the final verdict on the value of his work, he deserves the commendation that none of his books contains anything offensive to good taste or morals. Verne lived and died a Catholic.

More science fiction and fantasy writers belong to the Catholic Church than to any other religious body. Notable among these are G.K. Chesterton, Andrew Greeley, J.R.R. Tolkien, R.A. Lafferty, Anthony Boucher, Clifford Simak, Walter M. Miller, Jr. and Gene Wolfe. On a per capita basis, there are more practicing Catholics than practicing Protestants among mainstream sf/f writers. In the introduction to Sacred Visions, Fr Andrew Greeley (the famed priest-sociologist-novelist) suggests Catholicism fits better with science fiction than Protestantism. The Jesuit priest/scientist is one of the most common types of religious characters in science fiction literature.

John Philip Holland (Seán Pilib Ó hUallacháin / Ó Maolchalann) (29 February, 1840 – 2 August, 1914), Irish, engineer, inventor of the submarine.
He was fortunate that while in Cork he had an excellent science teacher in Brother Dominic Burke, a Limerickman. Brother Burke encouraged him in his designs for a submarine and as early as 1859 he completed his first drafts for a submarine design, a design he never radically changed.
Holland was convinced that naval warfare of the future would be run by the country that used submarines to steal close to the iron-clad battleships and attack at close range. In 1870, Jules Verne published a novel, “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea”, and an excited Holland persisted in turning a dream into reality.
—The Liscannor Man who invented the Sub
He was one of four brothers who may have been born in Liscannor, County Clare, Ireland to an Irish speaking mother, Máire Ní Scannláin, and John Holland, and learned English properly only when he attended the local English-speaking National School system and, from 1858, in the Christian Brothers in Ennistymon. Holland joined the Irish Christian Brothers in Limerick and taught in Limerick and many other centres in the country including North Monastery CBS in Cork City. Due to ill health, he left the Christian Brothers in 1873.
—John Philip Holland
He emigrated to the USA in 1873 and, after working as a schoolteacher in Paterson, New Jersey, began designing submarines.
After a number of failures, he succeeded with the Holland I, a tiny two-ton, petrol driven sub in 1877. From there he moved to bigger and better boats that formed the first fleets of the US, British, Japanese and Dutch navies. He died only a few months before the first ever sinking of a warship by a submarine with a torpedo at the opening of the first World War.

It is interesting to contrast the origin and character of Batman with that of rival Marvel Comics’ most popular character, Spider-Man (Peter Parker). These two super-heroes could hardly be farther apart in disposition. Effervescent Parker is the epitome of everyman humanity compared to the almost inhuman, some would say monstrous, spirit of vengeance the Batman has crafted himself into. Yet the tragic events which launched both characters onto the path of the hero (or vigilante) was remarkable similar: The murder of Peter Parker’s parental Uncle Ben and the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents. If anything, Parker’s tragedy should have triggered far more guilt and obsession, as he was more directly culpable because he let the killer escape from an earlier crime when he could easily have stopped the man. Traditionally, young Bruce Wayne bears no such burden of guilt (although the movie Batman Begins introduced some small but unjustified childlike feelings of responsibility). In a literary sense, the difference between Parker’s homey Protestant upbringing and Batman’s Catholic background provides a plausible explanation for why such similar motivations produced such dissimilar results. (Of course, concepts such as Catholic guilt and Protestant commonness are often literary traditions or conventions more than real-world phenomena.)
From a psychological perspective, the traditional literary Catholic psyche provides a ready explanation for who Batman is on the inside. Privileged Episcopalianism, one of America’s most liberal denominations, deeply entrenched within and also defined by normative mainstream American culture, seems as wholly at odds with Batman’s persona as it is in keeping with Bruce Wayne’s.

BATMAN’S cry might now be “To the confessional, Robin!” after he was unmasked as a Catholic yesterday.
One of the legendary superhero’s writers made the startling revelation in an on-line interview with fans of the Caped Crusader.
Chuck Dixon, who writes Batman cartoon strips for DC Comics, said the brooding superhero’s massive guilt complex meant he had to be a Catholic.
In a debate on Christianity in comics, Dixon said he had discussed Batman’s religion with cartoonist Graham Nolan.
Dixon said: “Graham and I had an ongoing argument about whether Bruce Wayne was raised a Catholic or a Protestant.
"I recently conceded to Graham that he must be a Catholic. No Protestant ever suffered guilt the way Bruce does."
They based their theory on Batman’s enormous guilt, and equated that to the so-called Catholic guilt. Catholic guilt is the feeling of remorse, self-doubt, or personal responsibility that results when a Catholic or lapsed Catholic engages in sinful acts. Habitual obsessive guilt over trivial or imagined sins is the error of scrupulosity and is suspected to stem from complex problems, arising out of a feeling of repentance for sin and helplessness in solving the world’s problems.
Yesterday, Scottish Catholic Church spokesman Monsignor Tom Connelly said: “Batman is well-known for overcoming evil with good and that is what being a Catholic is all about.
"I just hope the angels continue to guide him in everything he does.
"Batman as a Catholic is not something the Catholic Church in Scotland has a problem with in any way."

7th Day in the Octave of Christmas: Feast of Pope St Sylvester I
The French call New Year’s Eve “la Saint-Sylvestre”. It is usually celebrated with a feast called le Réveillon de la Saint-Sylvestre.
Italians call New Year’s Eve Capodanno (the “head of the year”) or Notte di San Silvestro (the night of St Silvestro).
New Year’s Eve is called Silvester in Austria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
If the year is a reference to the Birth of Christ why do our dates change on January 1st and not December 25th? Ah, this too has a very Catholic and religious answer. Most people think that Christmas Day is one day called December 25th. That is not accurate. It is the ancient Catholic practice that we celebrate the “Octave" of Christmas. (We do the same thing with Easter). So important is this feast that we celebrate it for eight whole days (Dec 25,26,27,28,29,30,31, Jan 1). But the “Octave" is really considered one long day. Upon the completion of this long day, on January 1 the Birth“day” of Christ is complete and our calendars advance to the next year. That is why we celebrate New Year’s Day one week later than Christmas. So very Catholic!

Beer holds a venerable place in our Catholic history, with some of the greatest breweries in the world being founded and run by Catholic monks.
—Catholic Beer Review
The name catholicbeer means “universal beer,” and also is a fun homage to the ones to whom all beer drinkers are indebted, the Catholic monastic Orders who brought beer brewing to its pinnacle (most commonly Trappist and other Cistercian off-shoots).
Beer makes you sleep easy.
Easy sleep makes you not sin.
Not sinning gets you into heaven.
Christianity brought with it the emergence of monasteries as centres of education and learning, where brewing knowledge could accumulate, quality standards could improve, and the craft of brewing could evolve, for the first time in Europe, into a true profession.

[The Blessing of Beer from the Rituale Romanum]
V. Adjutorium nostrum in nomine Domini. (Our help is in the name of the Lord.)
R. Qui fecit caelum et terram. (Who made heaven and earth.)
V. Dominus vobiscum. (The Lord be with you.)
R. Et cum spiritu tuo. (And with thy spirit.)
Oremus. (Let us pray.)
Bene+dic, Domine, creaturam istam cerevisiae, quam ex adipe frumenti producere dignatus es: ut sit remedium salutare humano generi, et praesta per invocationem nominis tui sancti; ut, quicumque ex ea biberint, sanitatem corpus et animae tutelam percipiant. Per Christum Dominum nostrum.
(Bless, + O Lord, this creature beer, which thou hast deigned to produce from the fat of grain: that it may be a salutary remedy to the human race, and grant through the invocation of Thy holy name; that, whoever shall drink it, may gain health in body and peace in soul. Through Christ our Lord.)
St Brigid, who legendarily changed dirty bathwater into beer, would regularly give it to the lepers to lighten their suffering; and in the words of St Columbanus, “It is my design to die in the brew-house; let ale be placed to my mouth when I am expiring so that when the choir of angels come they may say: ‘Be God propitious to this drinker.’”
—Veritatis Praeco: Why We Drink
St. Arnold (580-640), also known as St. Arnulf of Metz, was a seventh-century bishop of Metz, in what later became France. Much beloved by the people, St. Arnold is said to have preached against drinking water, which in those days could be extremely dangerous owing to unsanitary sewage systems — or no sewage system at all. At the same time, he frequently touted the benefits of beer and is credited with having once said, “From man’s sweat and God’s love, beer came into the world.”
Wise words, and St. Arnold’s flock took them to heart. After his death, the good bishop was buried at a monastery near Remiremont, France, where he had retired. However, his flock missed him and wanted him back, so in 641, having gotten approval to exhume St. Arnold’s remains, they carried him in procession back to Metz for reburial in the Basilica of the Holy Apostles. Along the way, it being a hot day, they got thirsty and stopped at an inn for some beer. Unfortunately, the inn had just enough left for a single mug; the processionals would have to share. As the tale goes, the mug did not run dry until all the people had drunk their fill.
Now, I’m not saying that Catholic drinking involves miracles, or that a miracle should occur every time people get together to imbibe. But good beer — and good wine for that matter — is a small miracle in itself, being a gift from God to His creatures, whom He loves. And as G. K. Chesterton wrote in Orthodoxy, “We should thank God for beer and burgundy by not drinking too much of them." In other words, we show our gratitude to God for wine and beer by enjoying these things, in good cheer and warm company, but not enjoying them to excess.

St. Brigid of Ireland, like many monks and nuns, was good at making ale and beer (and was known to miraculously multiply it).
Saint Brigid’s Feast:
"I would like a great lake of ale for the King of Kings;
I would like the people of heaven to be drinking it through time eternal.
I would like the viands of faith and pure piety;
I would like the flails of penance in my house.
I would like the people of Heaven in my house;
I would like the baskets of peace to be theirs.
I would like the vessels of charity to distribute,
I would like caves of mercy for their company.
I would like good cheer in their drinking,
I would like Jesus, too, to be among them.
I would like the Three Marys of illustrious fame,
I would like the people of Heaven there from all parts.
I would wish that I were a rent-payer to the Lord,
That I should suffer distress, and that He would bestow on me a good blessing.
I would like.”
Oh, and it’s not the normal word for beer or ale, it’s corm/cuirm — a strong barley beer or ale that was indispensable for a good feast with lots of drinking.
I would like the angels of Heaven to be among us.
I would like an abundance of peace.
I would like full vessels of charity.
I would like rich treasures of mercy.
I would like cheerfulness to preside over all.
I would like Jesus to be present.
I would like the three Marys of illustrious renown to be with us.
I would like the friends of Heaven to be gathered around us from all parts.
I would like myself to be a rent payer to the Lord; that I should suffer distress, that he would bestow a good blessing upon me.
I would like a great lake of beer for the King of Kings.
I would like to be watching Heaven’s family drinking it through all eternity.

The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say: Behold a man that is a glutton and a wine drinker, a friend of publicans and sinners.

[A bright red Catholic monster]
So, could Hellboy be a Catholic? Bizarrely, yes. The demon is raised by a traditional Catholic (Prof Broom) and he carries a rosary with him, tying it around his wrist before entering battle.
This has a lot to do with Mike Mignola, the Catholic graphic artist who originally created Hellboy.
But it must also have something to do with Guillermo del Toro, the film’s director. Del Toro was raised in Mexico by his grandmother, and it shows. He described Pan’s Labyrinth, his last film which scooped three Oscars, as “a truly profane film, a layman’s riff on Catholic dogma”. But others described it, less paradoxically, as being simply Catholic.
—The Catholic Herald
Anung Un Rama, better known as “Hellboy”, is a demon who is a native of a Hell-like dimension. He was not raised in his native dimension, however, as he was found abandoned in a church as an infant. The young demon was raised as a traditionalist Catholic by Professor Trevor Bruttenholm.
As an adult, Hellboy has remained a devout Catholic.
Hellboy works for the Bureau of Paranormal Research and Defense. He is one of the world’s foremost defenders against demons and other mystical threats.

Here again, there’s a good deal of Catholic imagery throughout, generally superficial, and a perceptible religious subtext. Thus Red’s exercise of free will still trumps both his originally hellish nature and a prophecy that he will cause the destruction of the human race. In that crucial scene of Nuada tempting Red, moreover, a white neon cross glows behind.
That confrontation ended, the city saved from destruction, and the baby returned to its frantic mother, Red — like Christ — finds himself rejected and mocked by the very people he has come to serve. Along with its medieval bestiary and its Gothic atmosphere, this sequel touches on Tolkienesque themes of power and destiny, making del Toro — employing the visual style of his “Pan’s Labyrinth” — a natural fit for the forthcoming adaptation of “The Hobbit.”
—Harry Forbes & John Mulderig, CNS Movie Reviews: Hellboy II: The Golden Army
Guillén: When Guillermo and I sat down to talk, we spoke a bit about the Catholic underpinnings prevalent in much of his manifested world. I’m aware that you are also a practicing Christian, are you Catholic?
Jones: I’ve been a lot of denominations over the years but I call myself a generic Christian, yes, and am attending a church now that would remind you of Catholicism. It’s more orthodox. On the first Hellboy, when I was given the script the first day and was told to go home and read it that day and get back to him that night, I’m reading the script called Hellboy and he’s a demon from Hell. I’m thinking, “Okay, I have to respectfully find a way to tell Guillermo I can’t do this movie.” That was my first thought before I cracked open the script. Then I started reading it and realised, “Oh my goodness, I am so not offended by this. In fact, I’m enlivened by it. I’m finding my faith being nurtured and challenged by this story. This is good.”
I loved seeing images in that first movie, where Hellboy had a decision to make. He was being enticed and tempted by the nemesis in that film to regain his princely place in Hell. “Here is the power you can have. Here is what you were meant to be really. And here’s what I can offer you.” That’s when his horns grew back, during this decision, when he was feeling tempted by that offer. Well, that’s when our young agent Myers was watching this, got Hellboy’s attention, and tossed him the rosary that his father Professor “Broom” had given him and that he grew up with as a boy demon. Hellboy caught that rosary in his hand and the image of the cross was burned into his palm. Looking down at his palm is when he realised who he is now and what decisions he had made in the life he’d chosen for himself. That was such beautiful imagery for me. Anyone who comes from the faith that I come from can relate to it and understand.

"I’m fireproof, you’re not."
Weapons: Hellboy is known for using various weapons and mystical items in his fight against evil. His most recognisable weapons are the Right Arm of Doom (which seems to be an unnatural addition to his anatomy) and the Samaritan, a powerful hand cannon. In the movies, he also uses special ammunition that is made to be effective against most any supernatural entity. These bullets usually hold silver shavings, holy water, white oak, garlic, and bits of iron, making them dangerous to almost any creature Hellboy might come across.
Hellboy also carries a golden cross that is attached to a chain that hangs from his belt. This cross is a symbol of Hellboy’s Catholic faith and upbringing.
