Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, SEPTEMBER 9, 2011 Saint Robert Bellarmine by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Roberto Francesco Romolo Bellarmino was one of the most important figures in the Counter Reformation, launched by the Church in response to the Protestant Reformation. He was born in Montepulciano, Italy on October 4, 1542 to Vincenzo Bellarmino and Cinzia Cervini who was the sister of Pope Marcellus II. Roberto attended the newly established Jesuit col- lege and entered the Society Of Jesus on September 20, 1560. He spent the next three years studying philosophy at the Roman College then went on to teach the humanities first at Florence then at Mondovi. He was then sent to Louvain in Flanders (Belgium) to com- plete his studies in theology and obtain a fuller under- standing of the prevailing heresies. It was at Louvain that he was ordained, sub- sequently becoming well known both as a professor and as a preacher. The learned Bellarmine was fluent in Greek and Latin and lectured at Louvain on the Summa Theologica of Thomas Aquinas. In 1576 Bellarmine was recalled to Italy and accepted the position of Chair of Con- troversies recently founded at the Roman College. It was there that he began to write "De Controversies", a monu- mental work against the heresies of his day that attempts to explain and sys- tematize the various con- troversies of his time. It was a work that had a pro- found effect throughout Europe. In 1588, Bellarmine was made Spiritual Father to the Roman College, a position interrupted when he was sent by Pope Sixtus V to accompany, as theologian, Cardinal Gaetano on a mis- sion to France to represent the Church amidst the troubles of their civil war. Bellarmine later sat on the final commission for the revision of the Vulgate (Latin Bible) initiated by the Coun- cil of Trent. In 1592 he was made Rec- tor of the Roman College and in 1595 Provincial of Naples. Pope Clement VIII recalled Bellarmine .to Rome in 1597 and made him his own theologian and in 1599 he elevated him to Cardinal. He was then appointed Arch- bishop of Capua. Under Pope Paul V, Bellarmine was once again recalled to Rome, made a member of the Holy Office and chief advisor to the Holy See in theology. Bellarmine lived to see one more conclave and the election of Pope Gregory XV, 1621 then was permitted to retire to Sant' Andrea due to his failing health where he passed away on September 17. 1621. He was canonized by Pope Pins XI in 1930 and declared a Doctor of the church in 1931. He is the patron saint of catechists. 2011 Boston ( ihts) Festival Christopher Columbus Park on September 10th and 1 lth (ahts): The Boston Arts Festival features the best of the Boston Arts Scene both visual and performance.

DiZazzo The Beauty of Freedom Ciao Bella, Labor Day and the ending of summer are al- ways a bit sad. This sounded like a great idea to overcome the "Labor Day Blues." My Happy Feet Spa friend Patricia and I were walking our laps in the outdoor pool. She said the best thing to do before summer is over is to make plans for the upcoming season's autumn and winter. Whether it be some trips near or far, a concert, theatre subscriptions, lunch with the girls or even a new haircut and makeover. Made me feel good I could do those things, not only because I can but I have the freedom to do so! Coming up on the I0th Anniversary of September 11th there are so many American freedoms to be grateful for even though they, unsuccessfully, tried to take them away. We can use cosmetics as well as clothing freely. Stroll down the street and choose any salon or spa that can paint our naris from green to black! We can apply lipstick and glittery eyeliner. Showy or conservative -- it's your choice -- our choice of changing styles, having the blessed freedom to do so! We can wear short-shorts, maxi dresses, no sleeves, low cut, high cut cleavage AND booty enhancementsl So while we remember in our prayers the lost souls of September 11th- at least they all experienced the beauty of freedom and led lucky lives to be here in this grand United States of America for the time they walked the earth! When the only times a woman covered her face was with her fan so she could flutter her eyelashes at her latest admirer! On September 11th take that moment of believing in America and her beauty of freedom today and always. Buona giomata and God bless the United States of America! --Mary DiZazzo-Trumbull Read prior weeks' "All That Zazz" columns at wwm.allthatzazz.com.
