Catholic film director puts 'a lot of myself into my movies'
 WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Mike Cahill, a Georgetown University graduate and director of the new drama "I Origins," asked an interviewer he knew was Catholic: "What did you think of the film? I'm Catholic. What did the story make you feel?" Cahill almost can't help it. "I put a lot of myself into my movies, spiritually, philosophically speaking," he said during a July 23 interview in Washington.

"Tsa," they reply hesitantly, and she makes them repeat the word several times. Pointing to the treetop, she says, "Suzapira." Except that the last vowel is somewhere between and "i" and a "u" — it is written as an "i" with a crossbar — and the children,…

FORT PIERCE, Fla. (CNS) -- A new radio program launched in the Palm Beach Diocese in June with a focus on shedding light on pro-life issues, and sharing ways to get involved in promoting the culture of life in the not-so-pro-life world. Organizers believe the program may be the only one of its kind in Florida, if not the United States, that is broadcast from a site across the street from an abortion clinic. "We are doing battle on the frontlines," said Anne Lotierzo, a parishioner of St. Joseph Parish in Stuart, who hosts "CrossRoads" with Duane Berreth, a parishioner…
