NEW ORLEANS — Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans prayed for victims of Hurricane Isaac as the archdiocese’s Catholic Charities affiliate assesses damage and helps those affected.

“We consciously place ourselves in God’s presence and ask him to give us his protection,” Archbishop Aymond said.

“God has always promised to protect us in challenging times, and we ask that God does that now, especially with those who are struggling. Bless us and help us reach those in need.”

Pope Benedict: Faith Must Be Lived With Integrity (3415)

The Holy Father reminded pilgrims Sept. 2 that God's law brings true freedom. The real meaning of following God’s law, he said, is 'to live in listening to God.'

Pope Benedict XVI says that God’s law brings personal liberation to each person who embraces it and lives it with integrity.

“God’s law is his word, which guides man on the path of life, releases him from the slavery of selfishness and introduces him to the ‘land’ of true freedom and life,” the Pope said during his midday Sept. 2 Angelus address.

“For this reason, in the Bible, the Law is not seen as a burden, an overwhelming limitation, but as the Lord’s most precious gift, the testimony of his fatherly love, of his desire to be close to his people, to be their ally and write with his people a love story.”

The Pope made his remarks before several thousand pilgrims who gathered in...READ MORE

Jewels Green is a stay-at-home mother of three boys. A former abortion-business worker, she left the industry and became a pro-life advocate in 2011. A former Lutheran, Green entered the Catholic Church on April 7, 2012. She recently spoke with Register senior writer Tim Drake from her home outside Philadelphia.

 

How did you first become involved in abortion work?

I worked at the Allentown Women’s Center, a freestanding abortion center that has been in continuous operation for more than 30 years. I was a poster child for cross-training. I did every job there except for doctor and nurse. I answered the phone and booked appointments; I took payments; I was trained in the lab, so that...READ MORE

The Church: Founded on Friendship (2975)

Aug. 26 issue column

09/02/2012 Comment

The modern world, in its crazy rush to eroticize everything, has been profoundly destructive of the sort of love called "friendship."

Eros, of course, has a real place in human relationships. It has rightly been the subject of song and story for as long as there have been people. Indeed, Genesis honors eros by pointing out the sacredness of the command to "be fruitful and multiply." God is tickled pink when man and woman fall in love and get married. That’s why he invented marriage: so that the union and fruitfulness of sex would find expression in man and woman with their children, made in the image and likeness of a Trinitarian God.

In fact, the whole thing is so sacred that Jesus...READ MORE
