Kolbe Report 6-30-18

Dear Friends of the Kolbe Center

Pax Christi!

I am sorry to have gone so long without sending out a newsletter. I was out of the country for three weeks, returned for our annual leadership retreat, and had to leave immediately afterwards to visit two of our daughters in a Benedictine Abbey. I have finally come down for a landing, and I will try to send the newsletter out at least once every two weeks for the next two months.

Our leadership retreat was professionally recorded this year, so I am happy to announce that you will be able to order the conference talks as audio CDs or as DVDs in the Kolbe web store next week. The speakers included Fr. Thomas Hickey on the Scriptural basis for the traditional Catholic doctrine of creation; Fr. Chad Ripperger on the metaphysical principles of traditional Catholic philosophy and their incompatibility with molecules to man evolution; Mr. John Wynne on the history of the Cartesian-Darwinian narrative; Miss Pamela Acker on the bankruptcy of the microbe-to-man evolutionary hypothesis and the icons of evolution; Dr. Robert Sungenis on the Copernican Principle and the Flat Earth movement; and many other interesting presentations. You can also view most of these talks on the Sensus Fidelium Youtube channel at this link.

One of the highlights of the conference was a play by the children who attended, involving St. Hildegard of Bingen, St. Bernard of Clairvaux and Abbot Peter Abelard. The play documents an early example of an attempt to exalt human reason above Divine Revelation within the Catholic community in the Middle Ages and shows how the great St. Bernard of Clairvaux confronted that challenge. If you would like to see a video of the play, please send me an email and I will send you a link to the video. Another highlight of the conference was the premiere showing of “Darwin’s Documentaries” by the members of the Gedney Family, a hilarious demonstration that the younger generation of fervent Catholics may expose the folly of evolutionary mythology more effectively with humor than with learned arguments. You can view the video, “The Missing Link: Missing No Longer,” at this link. It contains breaking news about a recent paleontological discovery here in the United States that appears to have identified the actual missing link between homo sapiens and lower life forms.

On Thursday morning, I was interviewed on the Mike Church show for the first time, and Mike has invited me to become a regular guest on the program, which would give us another opportunity to spread the true Catholic doctrine of creation far and wide. In August I will return to Uganda where we will give seminars to priests, seminarians, religious and lay leaders from various dioceses and will help with a Catholic medical mission. If you know a doctor or a nurse who would be interested in participating in a Helping Hands Medical Mission in Uganda at the end of August, please let me know. As demonstrated in the article at this link and in our book GMO Food: Boon or Bane? faith in the evolutionary hypothesis has been a disaster for medical practice and medical research. In Uganda we have the opportunity to help build a truly Catholic creation-based model of health care in place of the evolution-based, mechanistic approach to health care that has taken over the Western world. If you know of Catholic experts in relevant areas of knowledge who would be willing and able to assist us in this project, please let me know.

With gratitude for all of your prayers and support, I am

Yours in Christ through the Immaculata,

Hugh Owen
