WASHINGTON (EWTN News)—A new campaign ad for the Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul highlights his commitment to defend the lives of the unborn.

The TV spot hails Paul as “a man of faith, committed to protecting life.” It recalls his years as an OB-GYN, applauding the fact that he has personally delivered “more than 4,000 babies.”

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Pope Benedict XVI called for new ways of doing business, in keeping with the dignity of workers and their families, during an Oct. 15 address to promoters of Catholic social doctrine.

“Family and work are privileged places for the construction of the vocation of man, collaborating in the creative work of God today,” he told the Fondazione Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice, a Vatican-based lay organization that spreads the Church’s social teaching around the world.

Its members met in Rome for a two-day conference on the relationship between family and business.

In his speech to the foundation, the Pope recalled how the Second Vatican Council “spoke of the family...READ MORE

Last March a bishop who had not yet reached his 41st birthday was appointed head of the largest Eastern-rite Church in communion with Rome. Only recently appointed a bishop to serve the South American Ukrainian Catholic faithful, Sviatoslav Shevchuk, was elected major archbishop of Kiev-Halychna, thus taking the helm of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church from Cardinal Lubomyr Husar, who had already served three years past normal retirement age.

With some 10 million faithful worldwide, the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church holds a unique position within the Catholic Church. It bridges Eastern and Western Christianity, tracing its roots to the Church in Kiev, which broke with Rome during the...READ MORE

Benedict wrote: "The 'door of faith' is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. He hopes this year will bring a rediscovery and renewal of faith within the Church and world.

VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News)—Pope XVI Benedict says the Church’s Year of Faith, starting October 2012, which he announced yesterday, Oct. 16, comes in response to a “profound crisis of faith that has affected many people” and left them searching for answers.

“Ever since the start of my ministry as Successor of Peter, I have spoken of the need to rediscover the journey of faith so as to shed ever clearer light on the joy and renewed enthusiasm of the encounter with Christ,” the Pope wrote in his letter, Porta Fidei (Door of Faith), announcing the yearlong initiative, which was released Oct. 17.

Two children are seen at a rescue station after their were rescued by police on Feb. 13, 2011, in Guiyang, Guizhou province of China. More than 9,300 kidnapped children in China have been rescued since April 2009 since a nationwide campaign was launched to crack down on human trafficking. In less than three weeks, a Chinese microblog called 'Street Photos to Rescue Child Beggars' attracted 175,000 followers and posted more than 2,500 images of begging children online for parents to identify. But agencies such as one run by the U.S. bishops conference might not be able to help such children if they lose goverment grants due to restrictions on religious liberty.

WASHINGTON — The federal government’s decision to end funding for a Church program for trafficking victims has fueled concerns that “abortion politics” are at work.

“There seems to be a new unwritten reg at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). It’s the ‘ABC Rule’: anybody but Catholics,” asserted Sister Mary Ann Walsh, the spokeswoman for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which established an ambitious range of services for trafficking victims in 2006.

The HHS’ Office of Refugee Resettlement and the American Civil Liberties Union have stressed that trafficking victims need access to the full range of “family planning” services, which the USCCB program won’t...READ MORE
