 Article: Ecumenical Movement - Other Religions Uniting With Roman Catholics

The president of the Islamic Affairs Council of Maryland offered high praise for Pope Francis, saying the Catholic leader "resonates with the Muslim world," much like the saint from whom he takes his name.

"From my perspective, Pope Francis is really doing a wonderful job in terms of outreach, in terms of contributing to world peace, in terms of contributing to stopping wars and conflicts, praying for better understanding," said Imam Mohamad Bashar Arafat in an interview with Catholic News Service.

 October 12 - Only 1 in 3 Young Born-Again Evangelicals Believe Jesus Is Only Way to Heaven, Apologist Says
 Article: Miscellaneous

Young American born-again believers are moving away from a biblically-centered worldview, with only one in three affirming that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven, according to Steve Cable, senior vice president of Probe Ministries.

According to Cable, in books such as Souls in Transition and Lost in Transition, Smith identified five disturbing patterns found in emerging adults. The sociologist argued that most emerging adults are morally adrift - their morals are personal and subjective; they are captive to consumerism; they have little civic and political engagement; they believe that sex is not a moral issue, and they engage in intoxication, or fake feeling of happiness.

"We need to focus on the upcoming generations, saving the lost, saving the captive believers. Don't stop when they leave high school. Most people's brains are not fully formed until they are in their early 20s," Cable said

 October 15 - BNZ uses facial recognition to let customers know how they feel about their finances
 Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System

The Bank of New Zealand is using face and emotion recognition to let customers know what scares them about their own financial standing.  Called EmotionScan, the system was co-created by BNZ, nViso and Stuart Carr, a professor of psychology at Massey University.

Reported by The Financial Brand, EmotionScan works by analyzing users' faces as they listen to a series of scenarios related to eight different financial "areas of interest," which include cash flow, budgeting, mortgages, retirement, financial security, financial control, debt, dependents, donations and savings. The system runs through a browser and leverages webcams in user computers.

"Our technology tracks hundreds of points on the face," Tim Llewellynn, CEO of nViso said in the report. "We're able to map those points to over 43 muscles, allowing us to capture micro-expressions and translate those into a set of common emotions."

 October 15 - Ordinariate Use unites Anglican tradition to Catholic Church
 Article: Bridges To Rome

The introduction of a new Ordinariate Use liturgy for groups of former Anglicans is uniting some of their old traditions to the fullness of the Catholic Church.

The Vatican office responsible for adapting parts of the Anglican liturgy for use in the Catholic Church "has had the task of the scribe, trained for the kingdom of heaven, the householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old," said Monsignor Andrew Burnham. The monsignor serves as assistant to the ordinary of the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham.

"We have had to examine just what it is in the Anglican liturgical books that can and should be brought fully into the life of the Catholic Church," he explained during Mass on Oct. 10.

Established in 2011 by Pope Benedict XVI, the ordinariate allows for entire communities to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church while retaining elements of their Anglican heritage and liturgical practices, such as the Book of Common Prayer.
