NEW YORK — Mario Cuomo, the three-time governor of New York who sought to justify Catholic lawmakers’ tolerance of abortion rights, died on Jan. 1; he was 82.

A self-identified Catholic who quoted Thomas Aquinas, challenged Ronald Reagan’s optimistic vision of economic opportunity in America and cited Church moral doctrine as he vetoed legislation enacting the death penalty, Cuomo’s policy positions and rhetoric often resonated with his fellow believers.

Cuomo served as the governor of New York from 1983 to 1995 and emerged as the standard-bearer of his party’s liberal wing. But he resisted efforts to make him a candidate for president and also turned down President Bill Clinton’s...READ MORE

Building a New Future for Church Buildings (3843)

New York’s current parish restructurings highlight the issue of how to use surplus Church properties constructively.

Children's books and stuffed animals are available in the library of the Holy Family Home for Women and Children, located in a renovated former parochial school in Providence, R.I.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — With plans to close 33 churches and merge 112 parishes, the Archdiocese of New York has embarked on a yearlong effort to decide which buildings will remain open and which ones will close.

And part of the process, as in many other dioceses that also have been forced to deal with the same issue, will be the question of how to make use of properties the local Church no longer requires for their original purpose.

In New York, parishes blessed with decades, if not more than a century, of faithful support from generations of Catholics will decide along with an archdiocesan-planning group what happens next to the closed churches, convents, rectories and schools, said Joseph...READ MORE

ROME — Catholic marriage preparation and pastoral care of the family in light of human nature will be the topic of an upcoming Rome conference that takes inspiration from the Extraordinary Synod of Bishops on the Family.

The conference, hosted at Rome’s Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, aims “to make a constructive contribution to the reflections of the Church on marriage and the family,” a brochure said.

The event will take place at the Opus Dei-affiliated university March 12-13. It is organized by the university’s School of Canon Law, with participation from the university’s other schools.

Speakers include Cardinal Carlo Caffara of Bologna, who will speak on the topic “Faith and...READ MORE

Irony of New ‘Human Rights’ Legislation Lost on D.C. Council (4728)

COMMENTARY: Two new pieces of legislation represent a very real threat to the practice of religion codified by the U.S. Constitution.

01/02/2015 Comments (17)

In the nation’s capital, two very different views of law are playing themselves out.

The District of Columbia has recently proposed legislation — ironically titled the Human Rights Amendment Act of 2014 — that threatens religious liberty. A companion law, the Reproductive Health Non-Discrimination Act, expands the nondiscriminatory language in the Human Rights Amendment Act.

The first law repeals the so-called Armstrong Amendment, a 1989 exemption, which was enacted to shield religious schools in the district from the requirement that they recognize school groups that contravene Catholic teaching.  Without that exemption, Church-affiliated schools would have been forced to recognize or...READ MORE

VATICAN — Pope Francis called on the faithful “to fix our gaze of faith and of love on the Mother of Jesus,” in his Angelus address on the Solemnity of Mary, the Mother of God, on Thursday.

Following is the full text of the Holy Father’s address, which was edited for style. Translation was provided by News.va.

 

Dear brothers and sisters,

On this first day of the year, in the joyful atmosphere of Christmas, the Church invites us to fix our gaze of faith and of love on the Mother of Jesus. In her, the humble woman of Nazareth, “the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us” (John 1:14). Because of this, it is impossible to separate contemplation of Jesus, the Word of Life, who is...READ MORE
