Lila Rose, president of Live Action

– liveaction.org

RICHMOND, Va. — If Planned Parenthood’s abortion providers had a top-10 enemies list, you would probably find Lila Rose, the 25-year-old president of the pro-life group Live Action, ranked there as enemy No. 1. And it would be for good reason: Over the course of eight years, her undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood facilities have given the public an inside view of Planned Parenthood, leading to criminal investigations, loss of state funding and new state laws.

Rose began her undercover investigations into abortion facilities at age 15, when she founded Live Action. The youth-led organization has grown exponentially since then, and it uses the tools of new media and social...READ MORE

01/10/2014 Comments (13)

WASHINGTON — The chairman of the Republican National Committee has delayed the start of the party’s annual winter meeting in order not to conflict with the 2014 March for Life in Washington.

Chairman Reince Priebus told The Washington Times that there was “a real interest among a significant portion of our members to attend and support the Rally for Life.”

“This is a core principle of our party. It was natural for me to support our members and our principles,” he said.

Priebus, a Greek Orthodox lawyer from Wisconsin, decided to delay the start of the party meeting so that he and other committee members could attend the Jan. 22 event on the National Mall in downtown D.C. Party...READ MORE

Catholic Leaders Call for Policies Promoting Decent Work and a Just Wage (3021)

Miami Archbishop Thomas Wenski and Catholic Charities USA President Father Snyder said the current minimum wage does not allow people to live in dignity and raise one child out of poverty.

01/10/2014 Comments (36)


WASHINGTON — As lawmakers in the nation’s capital discuss a possible increase in federal minimum wage, Catholic leaders are asking that the needs of workers and families be kept in mind.

The current federal minimum wage fails “to provide sufficient resources for individuals to form and support families,” argued Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami, chairman of the U.S. bishops’ Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development, and Father Larry Snyder, president of Catholic Charities USA, in a Jan. 8 letter to the U.S. Senate.

“We write not as economists or labor-market experts, but, rather, as pastors and teachers, who, every day, in our ministries and churches, see the pain and...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis welcomed an old friend — Father Fabian Baez — to ride on his popemobile after spotting the priest in the crowd at the Jan. 8 general audience in St. Peter’s Square.

The Argentinian priest has been friends with Pope Francis since they worked together in Buenos Aires.

According to the newspaper La Nacion, Father Baez was able to get past a security barrier to get close to the Pope. He called out to the Holy Father, who turned and saw him.

“Are you with somebody or alone?” Pope Francis asked. “No, I’m alone,” the priest replied, to which Francis said, “Come on. Get in!”

Father Baez was shocked, as were the papal security guards, who once again witnessed...READ MORE

– Legionaries of Christ

VATICAN CITY — Earlier this morning, the Legionaries of Christ began their first meeting to draft and approve their new constitutions, after which they will elect their new leadership.
