Current events

Being Catholic has an impact on the way I perceive the world and what happens in it. It colored the way I looked at the killing of Osama bin Laden. It meant that in between stories of revelation and celebration in the news, I was also reading reflections by Catholic thinkers and others (such as this one) about concepts like revenge versus forgiveness, the value of life, the cycle of violence. The discussion is coming out of Christianity, but my view is particularly through the Catholic lens.
