Tilma Summer 2012

In the Summer 2012 issue you will find the recently approved Rite for the Blessing of a Child in the Womb. You will also find information about the Marian Catechist Mass Guild, "A Fortnight for Freedom," and explanations to help clarify the distinction between just and unjust laws, between the Culture of Life and the Culture of Death, and between the freedom of worship and the freedom of religion.

Tilma Winter 2011

In the Winter 2011 issue you will find His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke’s reflection from the Enthronement of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the newly-relocated offices of the Marian Catechist Apostolate. You will also find His Eminence’s update on the progress of the revision of Servant of God Father John A. Hardon, S.J.’s Basic Catholic Catechism Course, and several resources which will help to shed light on our obligation as citizens, a particularly timely issue, given the threats to religious freedom which we currently face. The resources focus on how we must choose to follow the mandates of a conscience formed by the teachings of the Church, whose authority comes from God, over and above the dictates of the State.
