VICTORIA, British Columbia — For 25 years, Catholic Christian Outreach (CCO), a university missionary apostolate inspired by evangelical Protestant groups such as Campus Crusade for Christ, and its missionaries, have been bringing to Canadian campuses — and parishes — Catholic truths about the sacraments and especially the real presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

The group’s message to university students is that life in Christ can bring great freedom, while the ostensibly liberated campus culture of unrestricted sex, drugs and alcohol is the way to slavery.

“In a world that is searching for something tangible to believe in,” said CCO missionary Mark Dumbrique, 20, “you can’t have...READ MORE

ROME — Ursuline Sister Cristina Scuccia, the young Italian religious who won the past season of The Voice Italy, renewed her temporary vows of poverty, chastity and obedience on July 29 at one of the congregation’s convents in Sicily.

A member of the Ursuline Sisters of the Sacred Family in Milan informed CNA about the ceremony but said she could not give her name because of harassment the community has endured from Italian tabloids.

In recent days, a reporter from the Italian magazine Di Piu followed Sister Cristina and two others to a store near their convent, located on the outskirts of Milan.

“Right now, I’m tired,” she told the reporter. “The last six months have been hard. Right...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — Warning that the international community neglected the initial outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, a relief agency testified before Congress about the need to take the disease seriously in order to contain it.

“[T]he international response to the disease has been a failure,” said Ken Isaacs, vice president of program and government relations for Christian aid organization Samaritan’s Purse.

He told members of Congress Aug. 7 that the world was comfortable allowing just a few relief agencies to shoulder the burden of the disease when it broke out in three countries.

“It took two Americans getting the disease in order for the international community and the United States to take...READ MORE

Hospital-Admitting Requirements for Abortion Facilities Could Draw Supreme’s Attention (4635)

In the wake of conflicting recent court decisions on the matter, legal analysts suggest the issue will be decided by the nation’s top court.

WASHINGTON — Abortion-facility regulations are under assault by pro-abortion activists in federal courts across the country, because they believe those regulations cause too many abortion facilities to close their doors.

Arguing that constitutional law prevents states from imposing an undue burden on women seeking abortions, the pro-abortion lobby has secured significant recent victories in blocking laws in Alabama and Mississippi that would have required abortionists in those states to have local hospital-admitting privileges.

Meanwhile, a federal judge in Texas heard arguments last week from the Center for Reproductive Rights, a pro-abortion organization that alleges a 2013 state law...READ MORE
