Matthew Fox, a Dominican priest who has mixed liberal New Age philosophy with Roman Catholic doctrine, has been sentenced to a year of silence by the Vatican, according to a report in a Catholic newspaper. Fox, who has previously said he was not afraid to be labeled a heretic, will be prohibited from speaking publicly or publishing his writings, effective Dec. 15, said a report in the National Catholic Reporter, a liberal weekly published in Kansas City.

Matthew Fox, 52, a popular teacher of a brand of theology he calls "creation spirituality," received notice of his dismissal Wednesday.

I'm not the confrontational type. But I can be a real noodge if my heart is in it. And, I figure, what good is a job like this if you can't bug the people in power? So I pressed my advantage recently when I saw Fox Entertainment Group President John Matoian at a press party. I wanted to talk about family. I wanted to talk about quality. Both of which, ironically, I had found on a Fox television show.

Worshipers danced to a pulsating rock beat in the darkened basement of Grace Cathedral. Around the room, screens and monitors filled with shifting images: planets in motion, planes dropping bombs, plants sprouting from the ground. A large globe hung over the circular altar, projecting the face of the minister as he declared, "Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again." Welcome to the Planetary Mass: part rave, part New Age mysticism, part Anglican church service.

Matthew Fox, the avant-garde priest defrocked by the Vatican for his free-spirited theology, will mark his new identity as an Episcopalian with a high-tech, high-decibel "Rave Mass" later this year in the basement of Grace Cathedral. Fox got the idea for the head-banger liturgy after visiting a band of unorthodox young Anglicans in England--where the "Rave in the Nave" features loud music, women dancing in bikinis and video monitors flashing messages such as "Eat God."

Each week on "Party of Five" the five young members of the Salinger family gather around a corner table and honor their pact to share a weekly dinner at the San Francisco restaurant formerly owned by their father. Amid the comforting sounds of clinking glass and china and the din of conversation, this party of five can breathe a collective sigh of relief. For despite the roller-coaster ride they face growing up without their parents, who died in a car accident, they are together.

Matthew Fox got a bit lost early Friday morning in Oregon, where the actor was reportedly headed for some fast food but wound up in jail. Fox was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence around 3:30 a.m. near Bend, the town where he lives with his family, according to TMZ. The outlet says Fox was traveling with an unidentified passenger seeking a late-night snack, but wound up in police custody. He was apparently released later on Friday, TMZ reported. While a rep for Fox did not immediately return a Ministry request for comment, this isn't the "Party of Five" star's first run-in with the law. In August 2011, on location in Ohio, Fox reportedly was detained by police.

Looks like some drama from that mystical island in "Lost" still lingers, as two of the show's former stars -- Dominic Monaghan and Matthew Fox -- are caught up in a cringe-worthy conflict stemming from Twitter. A fan tweeting at Monaghan on Sunday suggested he recruit former co-worker Fox to open an account on the social network, and Dominic wasn't shy in expressing his lack of enthusiasm over the request. "He beats women. No thanks," Monaghan responded . When the fan pressed about their "good times," the actor elaborated on the charge.
