Eternal Rest, Professor Rice

It is with saddened hearts that we learned of the passing last night of our Chairman, Professor Charles E. Rice.  May God grant his soul to rest in a place of just repose.

For us, Professor Rice has been a blessing to the Forum over the decades.  He had a quick wit and always had God’s interests at the front of his endeavors.

One thing that stands out in his life, was that despite how involved he was in legal matters, teaching, and Catholic interests, he always found time to keep Adoration.  Surely, over the decades, he amassed years of time in front of Our Lord.  It would not be that hard to imagine that, when Our Lord saw him, He said, “Charlie, I’ve been waiting to show you what I’ve prepared for you.”

As a student of his in law school, one thing stood out from both classes, you could not walk away from either without definitely having been impressed by him that “God loves us.”

The Forum will have more forthcoming about Professor Rice, but today, pray for his eternal rest, and that Our Lord and His Mother will comfort his family.

Great Reading for Lent

Every warrior needs refreshment.

The latest issue of the Bellarmine Forum Magazine is here:  Building a culture of life.  Even if you already love being pro-life and actively pray for an end to the culture of death, the topics, analysis, and articles in this issue will edify you and give you new hope! 

Delivered straight to your door, this issue brings an outlook of what the future holds for us, and how to be effective in the age ahead.  Makes a great tool for a work of mercy, too:  when you are finished, hand a copy to someone who doesn’t know about what it means to be pro-life. 


The Bellarmine Forum

Founded in 1965 to be Your Source of Defense of the Catholic Faith.


We saw it coming:  People doing whatever they wanted to do in the name of the Church and tradition being jettisoned in favor of positive thinking, liturgical dancing, innovation pawned off as pious practice, and sophistry replacing the power of reason.


We see it coming:  Because we pay attention to the observations of Mother Church throughout her history, we’ve identified issues and analyzed them years, sometimes decades before they are news.  Just consider that we were covering the problem of funding CCHD for over twenty years!


We’ve always been a place for the ordinary guy to find unvarnished opinions on the matters of the day and to share analysis and discussion of those things compared to tradition and common senses.  You won’t find ideologies here, but you will find ideas.

    Like An Aggressive Cancer… Historically, governments, healthcare personnel, and society in general shared the presumption in favor of life. But no more. A culture of death is spreading like an aggressive cancer, skewing values, twisting beliefs so that the precious gift of life is viewed as disposable like a used coffee filter. What can be…Continue Reading
