'The general rule here is that as long as technologies don’t replace the natural function but help it to achieve its intended function, it’s morally permissible,' he said."

  • "Catholics, Muslims seek mutual understanding," The Catholic Spirit, July 19, 2007. "As the word suggests, dialogue means that both Catholics and Muslims share and learn with each other, said University of St. Thomas professor Edward Ulrich, who will teach a class on interreligious dialogue this fall in the Catholic Studies program. Dialogue takes many forms, from dinner with a Muslim neighbor to working together for social change. But it requires both parties to meaningfully discuss their faiths, Ulrich added. St. Thomas theology professor Terrence Nichols credits the Second Vatican Council with the breakthrough in interreligious dialogue. 'Muslims aren’t idolators, they’re not heretics — they worship the same God [as Christians worship],' he said.
  • "Two Benedictine sisters profess vows," The Catholic Spirit, July 19, 2007.
