'Adoration of the Magi' by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo

– wikipedia

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI said on Sunday that the Magi’s visit to the Christ Child commemorated at the feast of the Epiphany shows that Jesus Christ is “the light of the world that guides the path of all peoples.”

“The faith of Mary becomes the first fruits and the model of the faith of the Church, the people of the New Covenant,” the Pope told the faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square Jan. 6. “But this people, from the beginning, is universal; and we see this today in the figure of the Magi, who come to Bethlehem following the light of a star and the indications of the sacred Scriptures.”

He said that Christmas shows the faith of the Virgin Mary, of St. Joseph and of the...READ MORE

MIAMI — Tom Peterson, founder of Catholics Come Home, announced that his Catholic evangelization organization will be airing a new national television commercial featuring retired college football coach Lou Holtz during college football week and ending with the BCS National Championship (Notre Dame vs. Alabama) on Jan. 7. The 30-second ad features Coach Holtz delivering a half-time “pep-talk” reminding viewers to keep focused on life’s goal: heaven.

The Nazi slaughter of the Jews in Poland, Germany and Czechoslovakia was well under way in February 1939, when Cardinal Eugenio Pacelli assumed the papacy, taking the name Pius XII. Horrified as he surely was by what was happening throughout Europe, it was his judgment that public denunciation of the persecution “would inevitably provoke further reprisals against the Jews,” according to Gordon Thomas in The Pope’s Jews.

Contraception Mandate Kicks In for Wave of Employers (4015)

The battle over religious freedom intensifies as the controversial federal contraception mandate goes into effect for many for-profit employers.

01/04/2013 Comments (12)

WASHINGTON — The battle over religious freedom is intensifying as the controversial federal contraception mandate goes into effect for many for-profit employers at the start of the new year.

“We shouldn’t have to give up our First Amendment rights to make a living,” said Maureen Ferguson, senior policy adviser for The Catholic Association, which seeks to bring a faithful Catholic voice to the public square.

Ferguson told Catholic News Agency on Jan. 3 that employers who did not win a court order blocking the mandate are now “placed in a horrible position, choosing between their livelihood and their faith.”

On Jan. 1, 2013, new employee health-insurance plans began for many companies...READ MORE

LONDON — The Archdiocese of Westminster has designated the historic Our Lady of the Assumption parish in London to a group of former Anglicans who have joined the Church and are known as an ordinariate.

“I hope that the use of this beautiful church ... will enable Catholics in the ordinariate to prosper and to offer to others the particular gifts of the ordinariate,” Archbishop Vincent Nichols announced Jan. 2.

For six years, the parish has hosted biweekly “Soho Masses” that are organized for the attendance of "gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered" Catholics in London. The group responsible for the Masses is now meant to “focus their effort on the provision of pastoral care” for...READ MORE
