Can one put God first and at the same time seek excellence in the business world?

The general and the cardinal: Separated at birth?

18 Nov

AVE MARIA, Florida (November 18, 2016) — In scanning the news this morning, I noticed that President-elect Donald Trump has asked Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Army, Retired), 57, to be his national security adviser. I also took note that Chicago Archbishop Blase Cupich, 67, will receive his red hat from Pope Francis this weekend. It’s a monumental weekend for both men.

And I couldn’t help but notice that from a certain angle they look very much alike. A Google search for them pulled up zero mentions that they are brothers or perhaps twins separated at birth. The cardinal-elect should be flattered. He’s a full decade older than the general. Further, no one else has pointed out the striking similarity. Your thoughts?

Voice of the Vatican: Legatus and the Eternal City

29 Oct

a319c-upclose-with-patrick-novecoskyROME (Oct. 29, 2016) — Legatus, the world’s premier organization for Catholic business leaders, had its origin in Rome, the editor Legatus magazine told Shalom World TV‘s Ashley Puglia Noronha during an interview at Rome’s Pontifical University of the Holy Cross.

Patrick Novecosky told Noronha on an episode of Voice of the Vatican that business leaders–presidents, CEOs and other executives–have great influence. Catholic business leaders have a great responsibility to set the ethical bar high for many reasons. Employees will rise or lower their ethical behavior after the model set by their company’s leader. Also, he said, ethically run businesses thrive and can weather storms that others cannot.

voiceNoronha asked Novecosky about Legatus magazine and its purpose. The magazine, he said, exists to help Legatus members to learn, live and spread their faith. Once they do that, their impact is virtually unlimited. He pointed to Tim and Steph Busch, California Legatus members who are helping build the business school at the Catholic University of America.

Novecosky also pointed to Pope St. John Paul II’s influence on Legatus and its mission. CLICK HERE to watch the entire interview. 9 minutes 28 seconds.
