What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.
Page 12 Campus ministry news Saint of the month: bv carolvn smillie November 4th is the feast Day of Carroll’s Patron Saint, Charles Borromeo. St. Charles was a tireless servant to all people, an advocate for improving the education of the clergy, and a defender of the Roman Catholic faith.

One witness related that during the great plague Charles sold his own bed to provide for the sick and dying in Milan.

St. Charles is a wonderful example to us at Carroll College of service, witness to the gospel of Jesus, and moral integrity.

Voting responsibility bv laura d’esterre With the recent elections there arises the issue of an individual’s responsibility/duty to vote and make their voice heard in society. Many people tend to be intimidated by the fact that their vote is only one among many, however, it is important to recognize that the public is sim ply a multitude of individuals, and no voice is more easily silenced than one that fails to make itself heard. It is important to vote, but one must vote with an understanding of the issues and the candidates. The U.S. Conference of Bishops urges people to be consistent with their beliefs and voting patterns. They have stated, “Catholics who bring their moral convictions into public life do not threaten democracy or pluralism but enrich them and the nation. The separation of church and state does not require division between belief and public action, between moral principles and political choices, but protects the right of believers and religious groups to practice their faith and act on their values in public life (Catholics in Political Life ~ http:// www.usccb.org/bishops/catholicsinpoliticallife.shtml.) They go on to urge individuals to vote as they assert, “We are not powerless. We are citizens. And in America, this means that we are the architects of our experiment in governing for the common good. The character of our nation depends on each of us. Citizens create the future not by being silent, but by advancing their beliefs vigorously by every ethical and legal means at their disposal. In fact, the more we involve our convictions in the public square, the more we serve the community by building a dialogue of truth. And truth, as Pope John Paul II has written, is the inner structure of freedom. ” For further info, please go to Faithful Citizenship: Building a Just Society - http://www.usccb.org/prolife/programs/rlp/OOrlflier.htm Thursday, November 9 ,2 0 0 6 Volume 9 0 , No 2
