GREEN BAY, Wis. — Bishop David Ricken didn’t criticize St. Norbert College’s (SNC) decision to host pro-abortion feminist Gloria Steinem when the announcement was first made on Sept. 29, 2014.

But that’s only because he wasn’t made aware of it.

Now, after receiving a steady stream of complaints from concerned Catholics in the Diocese of Green Bay, Wis., Bishop Ricken has left no doubt about where he stands on SNC’s invitation of the feminist activist, who once said that Planned Parenthood was the most important organization in the world.

“I do not approve of the appearance of Gloria Steinem at St. Norbert College,” Bishop Ricken wrote in his Jan. 8 column in the diocesan publication The...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — A pro-life organization is aiming to highlight how men are affected by abortion — and offer hope for healing and renewal — through a new video called The Apology.

“The pain of regret is one of the hardest things to deal with, because it is a constant reminder that we let down God; we let down others; we let down our child,” stated one of the men featured in the video.

The film was released by Heroic Media, a life-affirming multimedia organization, and produced under the direction of John Blandford, one of the men featured in it.

The short video showcases three men, all Christian believers from different backgrounds, who admit that...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis has rejected the “simplistic” belief that large families are among the causes of poverty, stressing that economic systems that create a culture of waste are to blame.

“Families know they are essential to the life of society,” the Pope said Jan. 21 during his first weekly general audience since returning from his Jan. 12-19 tour of Sri Lanka and the Philippines.

Speaking to the crowds gathered in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall, the Holy Father recalled his Jan 16. meeting with 1,000 families in Manila, one of the main events of his visit to the Philippines.

“It gives consolation and hope to see many large families who welcome children as a true gift of God,” he...READ MORE

Catholic psychotherapy is grounded in St. Thomas Aquinas’ teaching that grace perfects nature.

“In other words,” explained Christina Lynch, director of psychological services at St. John Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver and president of the Catholic Psychotherapy Association (CatholicPsychotherapy.org, CPA) , “God’s work in the human person does not supplement or bypass our humanity, but, rather, heals, strengthens and transforms it.”

“One cannot separate the person into parts of healing,” she explained. “Therefore, those who engage in psychological counseling in conjunction with spiritual direction are more likely to flourish, as opposed to addressing only one part of the person.”...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — Instances where business owners and other individuals have been sued or threatened with legal action for not accommodating same-sex “married” couples are motivating some lawmakers and legal analysts to call for new state laws to protect religious liberties.

As of mid-January, at least 19 states had passed their own versions of the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and several other state legislatures are considering similar bills this year.

“I see this as a shield for religious liberty. That’s why I filed the bill. Anything we can do to further protect the First Amendment and religious liberty is the goal,” said Indiana state Sen. Scott Schneider, R-Indianapolis, who...READ MORE
