Tributes to Mr. Al Antczak (May he rest in peace)

In its current issue, The Tidings remembers its late editor, Mr. Al Antczak, very well. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace, Amen. Here are the links:

The following is from the last item above:

'Life is Theological'
(In one of many talks he gave to Catholic organizations, Al Antczak gave this reflection at a 1966 address to the Cabrini Literary Guild on the role of a journalist.)

My remarks will be simply those of a newspaperman --- a reporter and an editor. I am not a theologian, philosopher, historian and scientist --- only a reporter.

Although a good reporter is not necessarily a theologian, he should recognize that the central fact of life is theological; that man has a relationship to God and that when his relationship is ignored there is disorder.

A good reporter is not necessarily a philosopher, but he recognizes that there are orderly, systematic methods of thinking and reasoning. And that when these are ignored, then there is fallacy and error...

Remember him well. Worked very hard with a small dedicated staff, including the late John Truxaw, to produce a Real Catholic Newspaper.
The tabloid put out by the Archdiocese is a caracature of the Antczak Tidings.
