 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Nicholas Cardinal Wiseman
The cardinal followed up the publication of his treatise by delivering a course of lectures on the same lines in St. George's Cathedral, and the note struck by him was taken up by Gladstone in the House of Commons.
All this greatly consoled the cardinal when troubled and harassed by many vexations, and a spirit of new cheerfulness and courage breathes from a sermon preached by him in May, 1855, dwelling in thankfulness and hope on the revival of Catholicism in England.
He had worked under the cardinal both in Rome and at Oscott, and they were intimate friends; but their differences of character and temperament were so marked that Errington foresaw from the first, if Wiseman did not, that the new relation between them would be one full of difficulty.

 Cardinals in the Catholic Church | Catholic-Pages.com
Most Cardinals are either Archbishops of the largest dioceses in their countries or regions, or the heads of the dicasteries of the Roman Curia (the Pope's Ministers of State, if you like).
Of course, the singular role that the Cardinals play is that of electing a new Pontiff when the See of Peter is vacant (see Electing a Pope).
Because the Cardinals are called to help the Pope in his leadership of the Church, they are also linked in a special way to the Diocese of Rome.

Cardinal: Pastoral Associates are very important to the life of a parish, since they are prepared to deal with every kind of pastoral issue, question, or problem that arises in a parish.
Cardinal: Actually, there is no such thing as the "Catholic traditionalist, modernist, movement." Either one is in full communion with the Catholic Church, in unity with the Successor of Peter, or not.
Cardinal: As the Second Vatican Council teaches us, it is the Church's belief that everyone goes to heaven "through the salvific merits of Jesus Christ." Therefore, if they belong to another faith community, we believe that it is still the merits of Jesus' Paschal Mystery that enables them to reach the Kingdom of God.

 Catholic World News : Anything But Relaxing
Strangely, the cardinal does not see homosexuality as a factor in priestly child abuse, despite the strong evidence from the United States, where the vast majority of sex-abuse cases have involved young males.
Even more surprising, the cardinal does not believe that homosexually oriented men should be barred from ordination, a precaution that has been suggested by the Vatican in the past, and confirmed in the light of the US experience.
The February issue of Briefings, the journal of the episcopal conference of which the cardinal is president, contained a letter from Cardinal Jorge Medina Estevez, then head of the Congregation for the Sacraments and Divine Worship, describing the ordination of homosexually oriented men as "inadvisable, imprudent, and pastorally very risky." The cardinal does not agree.

 Leading Cardinal: Science Incompatible with Catholicism » Outside The Beltway | OTB
An influential cardinal in the Roman Catholic Church, which has long been regarded as an ally of the theory of evolution, is now suggesting that belief in evolution as accepted by science today may be incompatible with Catholic faith.
In a telephone interview from a monastery in Austria, where he was on retreat, the cardinal said that his essay had not been approved by the Vatican, but that two or three weeks before Pope Benedict XVI’s election in April, he spoke with the pope, then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, about the church’s position on evolution.
Cardinal Schoenborn does not deny evolution and the science behind it, only the idea that God was not involved and nature unfolded randomly, not according to His effort.

The scandal erupted in January, when the Boston Globe won a court order releasing the documents from lawsuits against John Geoghan, a defrocked priest who was accused of molesting dozens of youngsters during his years of ministry in Boston.
But Cardinal Law's defenders could still argue that he had acted out of a misplaced compassion or had placed too much confidence in the advice of psychologists.
Cardinal Law himself wrote to Father Shanley in 1996, thanking him for his "years of generous and zealous care." He even recommended him for a position in a New York City home for troubled youngsters.

As with most official critiques of books and movies, Cardinal Bertone's recent comments will probably have the opposite of their intended effects, making even more people inside and outside the Catholic Church interested in experiencing what he has now suggested should be considered a forbidden fruit.
Cardinal Bertone has set out to criticize what he sees as, in his opinion, the dangerous and erroneous content of The Da Vinci Code.
Sadly, Cardinal Bertone seems to be suggesting a return to a time when Church leaders believed they could win intellectual and philosophical debates by simply banning or suppressing certain ideas.

 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Catholicism vs. Freemasonry—Irreconcilable Forever
For Catholicism is essentially a revealed religion; it is essentially supernatural, both in its destiny and in its resources.
Although Pope Leo does not explicitly speak of this essential opposition between Catholicism and Masonry in terms of the First Commandment of God—"I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have strange gods before me"—surely the most radical and simplest way of situating this opposition is to say just this.
It is, in a word, "Counterfeit Catholicism." For its "God" is the "Counterfeit God": the one who would be as God, the one who is the prince of this world, the one who is the Father of Lies.

 FT April 2001: Catholicism & Capital Punishment   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
Although Cardinal Bernardin advocated what he called a “consistent ethic of life,” he made it clear that capital punishment should not be equated with the crimes of abortion, euthanasia, and suicide.
Catholic authorities justify the right of the State to inflict capital punishment on the ground that the State does not act on its own authority but as the agent of God, who is supreme lord of life and death.
This was a major point in Cardinal Bernardin’s speeches and articles on what he called a “consistent ethic of life.” Although this argument may have some validity, its force should not be exaggerated.

The cardinal summarized the long history of anti-Catholicism in Maryland, despite the fact that it was a colony founded by Catholics.
The cardinal cited Philip Jenkins’ 2003 book, “The New Anti-Catholicism: The Last Acceptable Prejudice,” in which the author states that in modern American history "no mainstream denomination has ever been treated so consistently, so publicly, with such venom" as has the Catholic Church.
The cardinal said Catholic immigrants and Catholic youth actively defend their beliefs and are “unapologetic about their Catholic heritage and about what it means to be Catholic.”

In an effort to understand the supercharged atmosphere, the Roman news agency I Media spoke with Cardinal Paul Poupard, a French native who now serves at the Vatican as president of the Pontifical Council for Culture.
Cardinal Poupard: I remember accompanying Pope John Paul II on June 1, 1980, when he visited the Catholic Institute in Paris while I was the rector there.

A certain sense of superiority and complacency in Irish Catholicism may have rendered the Church ill-prepared for the changes of Vatican II and the greater secularization of the culture.
He points to Cardinal Lustiger of Paris as an example of a bishop who does not hesitate to speak on controversial issues in the public square in a manner that does not merely repeat various dogmatic statements but attempts to persuade others and offer new approaches to problems.
He also maintains that Irish Catholicism needs to rediscover its rich medieval contemplative heritage, which was destroyed by the Reformation.

 Jamaica Gleaner - Catholicism and 'Cardinal' errors - Sunday | December 22, 2002
CATHOLICISM TOOK another heavy blow a week ago when Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston in the United States, tipped by some pundits as a contender to the papacy, offered his resignation to Pope John Paul II.
The decision by Cardinal Law to step down, after his role in transferring paedophile priests was exposed, must be commended, but it must be remembered that he only did so after tremendous pressure, especially from his own congregation.
However, many people have lost faith, not in God, but in institutionalised religion, because its leaders have been more committed to politicking and back-scratching than to the care of their congregations.

Cardinal Alfons Stickler, retired prefect of the Vatican Archives and Library, is normally reticent.
, the Cardinal scored Catholics within the fold who have undermined the Church—and in the final third of his speech made clear his view that the "Mass of the post-Conciliar liturgical commission" was a betrayal of the Council fathers.

Likewise, Pope John Paul II, in the “letter” Cardinal Schonborn dismissed as “rather vague and unimportant,” claimed “We know that the truth cannot contradict the truth.” Perhaps theologians of the Church, then, should NOT be taking upon themselves to define what comprises valid science.
We have to be M Sagan on a tail end of a nondescript galaxy in a peripheral arm precisely because anywhere else we couldnt exist.
You are correct that Schonborn’s piece is not official Church doctrine (even though he is a cardinal of the Catholic Church and a member of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith).

 John Henry Cardinal Newman's Importance & Influence   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-08-20)
John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890) was a (if not the) leading figure in the Church of England prior to his conversion to Catholicism in 1845; a scholar at Oxford who possessed brilliant speaking and writing abilities.
Subsequent generations have agreed that Cardinal Newman greatly enriched both the Anglican and the Catholic traditions by his scholarship and his personal commitment to the one Lord of the church.
The philosophical and theological thought and the spirituality of Cardinal Newman, so deeply rooted in and enriched by Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Fathers, still retain their particular originality and value.
