Catholic world 2119 Card, Orson Scott. Ender's Shadow. New York: Tor (1999); pg. 304. "'Sister Carlotta, I'm on a leave of absence right now. That means I've been sacked...'

'Sacked! A miscarriage of justice. You ought to be shot.'

'If the Sisters of St. Nicholas had convents, your abbess would make you do penance for that un-Christian thought.' "

Catholic world 2127 Card, Orson Scott. Shadow of the Hegemon. New York: Tor (2001); pg. 33. "To: Carlotta%agape@vatican.net/orders/sisters/ind

Re: Danger

I have no idea where you are and that's good, because I believe you are in grave danger, and the harder it is to find you, the better... " [This begins a letter to Sister Carlotta, a Catholic nun who is one of the main characters in the novel. Many other refs. to her, and to Catholicism, in novel, most not in DB.]

Catholic world 2127 Card, Orson Scott. Shadow of the Hegemon. New York: Tor (2001); pg. 279. [From the letter from Sister Carlotta.] Pg. 279: "My manner of death is meaningless to me. Only my manner of life mattered, and that is for my Redeemer to judge. "; Pg. 282: "The worst fear of every loving parent, you see, is that they will have to bury a child. We nuns and priests are spared that grief. Except when we take it upon ourselves, as I so foolishly and gladly have done with you ['adopting' Bean as if he were a son]. "
Catholic world 2127 Card, Orson Scott. Shadow of the Hegemon. New York: Tor (2001); pg. 284. [From the letter from Sister Carlotta.] "I know you will not accept my religious terminology, but you know what it means to me. You have a soul, my child. The Savior died for you as for every other human being ever born. Your life is of infinite worth to a loving God. And to me, my son. You will find your own purpose for the time you have left to live. Do not be reckless with your life, just because it will not be long. But do not guard it overzealously, either. Death is not a tragedy to the one who dies. To have wasted the life before that death, that is the tragedy. Already you have used your years better than most. You will yet find many new purposes, and you will accomplish them. And if anyone in heaven heeds the voice of this old nun, you will be well watched over by angels and prayed for by many saints. "
Catholic world 2137 Resnick, Mike. Kirinyaga: A Fable of Utopia. New York: Ballantine (1998); pg. 268. "'My wife was a Catholic. My son and daughter bore Christian names. And I myself had grown used to European clothes and European conveniences.' "
Catholic world 2150 Dick, Philip K. The Divine Invasion. New York: Timescape (1981); pg. 11. "You either emigrated or they burned your ass in some fruitless war. The government did not even bother to justify war, now. They just sent you out, killed you and recruited a replacement. It all came from the unification of the Communist Party and the Catholic Church into one mega-aparatus, with two chiefs-of-state, as in ancient Sparta. "
Catholic world 2150 Dick, Philip K. The Divine Invasion. New York: Timescape (1981); pg. 30. "'The Party,' Herb Asher said. He still thought of it by its old name, the Communist Party.

'But in college I began to get involved in church work. I made the decision. I chose God over the material universe.'

'So you're Catholic.'

'C.I.C., yes. You're using a term that's under ban. As I'm sure you know.'

'It makes no difference to me,' Herb Asher said. 'I have no involvement with the Church.' "

Catholic world 2150 Dick, Philip K. The Divine Invasion. New York: Timescape (1981); pg. 50. "Probably it was necessary that he not remember. Had he been able to recall into consciousness everything, the basis of it all, then the government would have killed him. There existed two heads of the best, the religious one, a Cardinal Fulton Statler Harms, and then a scientific one named N. Bulkowsky. But these were phantoms. To Emmanuel the Christian-Islamic Church and the Scientific Legate did not constitute reality. He knew what lay behind them. Elias had told him. But even had Elias no told him he would have known anyhow; he would everywhere and at every time be able to identify the Adversary. "
Catholic world 2150 Dick, Philip K. The Divine Invasion. New York: Timescape (1981); pg. 55. "'...With God the remedy is greater than the malady.'

' 'Felix culpa,' ' Rybys said.

'Yes,' Elias agreed. To Herb Asher he explained, 'It means 'happy fault,' referring to the fall, the original fall. Had there been no fall perhaps there would have been no Incarnation. No birth of Christ.'

Catholic doctrine,' Rybys said remotely. "i never thought it would apply to me personally.'

Herb Asher said, 'But didn't Christ conquer the forces of evil? He said, 'I have overcome the world.' '

'Well,' Rybys said, 'apparently he was wrong.'

'When Masada fell,' Elias said, 'all was lost. God did not enter history in the first century C.E.; he left history. Christ's mission was a failure.'

'You are very old,' Rybys said. 'How old are you, Elias? Almost four thousand years, I guess. You can take a long-term view but I can't. You've known this about the First Advent all this time? For two thousand years?' " [More.]

Catholic world 2150 Dick, Philip K. The Divine Invasion. New York: Timescape (1981); pg. 80. "A solemn prayer vigil had been formally called into being but nonetheless Bulkowsky continued to decline... Bulkowsky, as not only Cardinal Harms but the entire curia knew, was a devout Christian. He had been converted by the evangelical, charismatic Dr. Colin Passim who, at his revival meetings, often flew through the air in dramatic demonstration of the power of the Holy Spirit within him.

Of course, Dr. Passim had not been the same since he sailed through a vast stained-glass window at the cathedral of Metz, France. "

Catholic world 2150 Dick, Philip K. The Divine Invasion. New York: Timescape (1981); pg. 161. "'The Communist Party has not the world power that you are accustomed to. The term 'Scientific Legate' is not known. Nor is Fulton Statler harms the chief prelate of the C.I.C., inasmuch as no Christian-Islamic Church exists. He is a cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church; he does not control the lives of millions.' "
Catholic world 2160 Clarke, Arthur C. The Fountains of Paradise. New York: Ballantine (1980; 1st ed. 1978); pg. 86. "This was by no means the first time he had been on ground once sacred to some great religion. He had seen Notre-Dame, Hagia Sophia, Stonehenge, the Parthenon, Karnak, Saint Paul's, and at least a dozen other major temples and mosques... The faiths that had created and sustained them had all passed into oblivion, though some had survived until well into the twenty-second century. "
Catholic world 2166 Farmer, Philip Jose. "Riders of the Purple Wage " in The Hugo Winners: Volumes One and Two. (Isaac Asimov, ed.) Garden City, NY: Nelson Doubleday (1971; story copyright 1967); pg. 644. "'Uncle Sam. Sam is short for Samuel, from the Hebrew Shemu'el, meaning Name of God. All the Radishes are atheists, although some, notably Omar Runic and Chibiabos Winnegan, were given religious instruction as children (Panamorite and Roman Catholic, respectively).

'Young Winnegan's revolt against God, and against the Catholic Church, was undoubtedly reinforced by the fact that his mother found strong cathartics upon him when he had a chronic constipation. He probably also resented having to learn his catechism when he preferred to play. And there is the deeply significant and traumatic incident in which a catheter was used on him. (This refusal to exercise when young will be analyzed in a later report.) " [Also pg. 672-673.]

Catholic world 2166 Farmer, Philip Jose. "Riders of the Purple Wage " in The Hugo Winners: Volumes One and Two. (Isaac Asimov, ed.) Garden City, NY: Nelson Doubleday (1971; story copyright 1967); pg. 631-632. "Chib says, 'My brother and sister must have seen you sometimes when you were sneaking out to mass. Could they . . . ?'

'They think I'm a ghost, too. In this day and age! Still, maybe it's a good sign that they can believe in something, even a spook.'

'You better stop sneaking out to church.'

'The Church, and you, are the only things that keep me going. It was a sad day, though, when you told me you couldn't believe. You would have made a good priest--with faults, of course--and I could have had private mass and confession in this room.'

Chib says nothing. He's gone to instruction and observed services just to please Grandma. The church was an egg-shaped seashell which, held to the ear, gave only the distant roar of God receding like an ebb tide. "

Catholic world 2175 Clarke, Arthur C. & Gentry Lee. Rama II. New York: Bantam (1989); pg. 24. "The society that emerged in the 2170s was therefore dramatically different from the freewheeling laissez-faireism o fifty years earlier. Many very old, established institutions, among them the nation-state, the Roman Catholic church, and the English monarchy, had enjoyed a renaissance during the half century interim. These institutions had prospered because they had adapted quickly and taken leadership positions in the restructuring that followed The Chaos. "
Catholic world 2179 Sawyer, Robert J. Golden Fleece. New York: Time Warner (1990); pg. 133. "'...maybe everybody will have a couple of extra arms.'

'What good would that do?'

'Who knows? Maybe it would make it simpler for catholic guys to cross themselves and whack off at the same time.'

'Aaron!' She swatted him on the shoulder.

'Just a thought.' "

Catholic world 2199 Clarke, Arthur C. & Gentry Lee. Rama II. New York: Bantam (1989); pg. 59. "General O'Toole [a devout Catholic] stopped for a moment as he mentally completed his survey of the religious beliefs of the Newton crew. 'The European women des Jardins and Sabatini are nominally Catholic, although they would not be considered devout by any stretch of the imagination. Admiral Heilmann is a Lutheran on Easter and Christmas. Takagishi meditates and studies Zen. I don't know about the other two.' "
Catholic world 2199 Clarke, Arthur C. & Gentry Lee. Rama II. New York: Bantam (1989); pg. 154. "'I had a long discussion with Signora Sabatini three nights ago,' he said. 'About religion. She told me that she had become an agnostic before finally coming back to the church. She told me that thinking about Rama had made her a Catholic again.'

...'Nevertheless, I hope I haven't offended you in any way. Religion is a very private matter.' He smiled. 'But sometimes it's hard not to share your feelings, particularly since both you and Signora Sabatini are Catholics as well.' " [More.]

"
Catholic world 2250 Stapledon, Olaf. Last and First Men. Los Angeles: Jeremy P. Tarcher, Inc. (1988; first published 1930); pg. 59. [Year is estimated.] "About two centuries after the formation of the first World State, the President of the World declared that the time was ripe for a formal union of science and religion, and called a onference of the leaders of these two great disciplines.... the heads of Buddhism, Mohamedanism, Hinduism, the Regenerate Christian Brotherhood and the Modern Catholic Church in South America, agreed that their differences were but differences of expression. One and all were worshippers of the Divine Energy, whether expressed in activity, or in tense stillness. One and all recognized the saintly Discoverer as either the last and greatest of the prophets or an actual incarnation of divine Movement. "

I realize that my understanding of these things may be imperfect, but these eldritch lands seem to be far older than Christianity. How did you find yourself here?'

'My father followed the custom of the times, and having more sons than he knew how to employ, he sent me--for I had shown some talent for reading and ciphering--into the clergy. I did well in my education and after being ordained arranged to be sent home again. There I could have done well but for my pride... I lorded my collar and my education over my less formally educated brethren. In time, they grew tired of me and one full moon near the spring equinox they brought me to this place...' ";

The various religions' treatments of the metaphysical issues of life, death, afterlife, reward, and punishment fed a portion of his maturing psyche that had been sadly starved... a boy young enough to be his great-great-grandson, no matter how brilliant that boy might be.

And so Jay attended Catholic Mass, presided over by the Pope in real-time virt persona. He sat hushed as an electronic bodisatva explained the nature of maya--that illusion was not a matter merely of appearance, but of perception. He danced at a voudon ceremony, but none of the loa selected to ride him. "

Catholic world 2250 Zelazny, Roger & Jane Lindskold. Donnerjack. New York: Avon (1998; c.1997); pg. 348. "'Use land in the U.S. of A. They still have provision for freedom of religion in their Constitution. Plant a rumor that the attempts to clamp down on our celebrations are only the beginning of widespread restrictions on religious freedom. Lots of religions claim to manifest their gods--Catholic through the Eucharist, voudon through the loas. There are others. Make them our allies in this.' "

Catholic world 2301 Bester, Alfred. The Demolished Man. Garden City, NY: Doubleday (1953); pg. 117. "There was a faithful reproduction of the Notre Dame Cathedral in the center of the cemestary. It was painstakingly labeled: Ye Wee Kirk O Th' Glen. From the mouth of one of the gargoyles in the tower, a syrupy voice roared: 'SEE THE DRAMA OF THE GODS PORTRAYED IN VIBRANT ROBOT-ACTION IN YE WEE KIRK O TH' GLEN. MOSES ON MT.

(See pg. 77).] "'In a green country wet with springtime I found the great stones of Newgrange, where a folk forgotten once buried their kings; and along its western cliffs, where the sea roared gray, I went into a little parish church from when the people found their hope in Christ, and I knelt before his altar.

'Light streamed on me in many colors through the windows of faerie York Minister and soaring Chartres Cathedral. At the University of Salamanca, which remembers the wise Moors, I lost myself in books.

'I looked into the big eyes of the Empress Theodora at Ravenna and knew why men had loved her. I saw Michelangelo's Judgment Day in Rome and wished that the doom in our cosmology had such a meaning.' "

Catholic world 2977 Stableford, Brian. "Mortimer Gray's History of Death " in Immortals (Jack Dann & Gardner Dozois, eds.) New York: Ace Books (1998; c. 1995); pg. 204. "Just as the Protestants were trying to replace the Catholic Church's centralized authority with a more personal relationship between men and God, Gray argued, the creative artists of this era were trying to achieve a more personal and more intimate form of reconciliation between men and Death, equipping individuals with the power to mount their own ideative assaults. He drew some parallels between what happened in the Christian world and similar periods of crisis... "

The slightest knowledge of the Inquisition makes one ashamed to belong to the human species . . .

That would have been his hero, Pius XX--I'm sure I mentioned him to you. Look him up--he's usually called the Impius! It's a fascinating story, and exactly parallels something that happened just before you were born. You must know how Mikhail Gorbachev, the President of the Soviet Empire, brought about its dissolution at the end of the Twentieth Century, by exposing its crimes and excesses.

He didn't intend to go that far--he'd hoped to reform it, but that was no longer possible. We'll never know if Pius XX had the same idea, because he was assassinated by a demented cardinal soon after he'd horrified the world by releasing the secret files of the Inquisition . . .

The religious were still shaken by the discovery of TMA-0 only a few decades earlier--that had a great impact on Piux XX, and certainly influenced his actions... "

But the government census taken last year gives the total population of Yugoslavia at 23,575,194. That leaves only 74,132 for the other religious and irreligious bodies. Aware of the large Moslem population of Yugoslavia, I suspected an inaccuracy in the published statistics and consulted the computer at St. Peter's, which informed me... that the lat count of the Faithful in Yugoslavia, made a year and a half ago, places our numbers at 14,206,198.
