Exhibition "As Subject and Object: Contemporary Book Artists Explore Sacred Hebrew Texts" showcases the work of 14 contemporary book artists who explore traditional themes in unconventional ways. Ancient Hebrew texts, ranging from the Hebrew Bible to the Talmud, the Passover Haggadah, and the story of Hanukkah, have inspired these twenty-first century artists to create works as varied in style as they are in media. Rather than merely illustrating the texts, the artists challenge and extend them through their personal interpretations.Through September 29, 2013. MOBIA is located at 1865 Broadway, at 61 Street in New York City.

A Post-Catholic Ireland? Renewing the Irish Church from Within
NEW YORK – article adapted from an address presented as the Russo Family Lecture at the Fordham Center on Religion and Culture in New York on April 24, 2013. Dublin's Archbishop Diarmuid Martin: "For decades Ireland was looked on as one of the world’s most deeply and stably Catholic countries. Today Ireland finds itself, along with other parts of Europe, being classified as “post-Catholic.” Everyone has his or her own definition of the term. You can fully define post-Catholic only in terms of the Catholicism that has been displaced. Irish Catholicism has its own unique history and culture. Renewal in the Irish church will not come from imported plans and programs; it must be home-grown."
