WASHINGTON — As new statistics show the accelerated growth of the Hispanic population in many areas of the country, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has launched a Spanish-language Facebook page.

Bishop John Wester of Salt Lake City, who heads the U.S. bishops’ Communications Committee and is a consultant to the Committee on Migration, explained that “Hispanics make up 16% of the total U.S. population, almost 40% of U.S. Catholics, and 50% of U.S. Catholics under age 25.”

“It is critically important to engage this demographic, especially through the expanding field of social media, and provide them with accurate, quality information that encourages them to grow in their faith,”...READ MORE

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — When 40 Days for Life launches its 11th national peaceful, prayerful campaign outside a record number of abortion businesses on Sept. 26, they hope to change not only the hearts and minds of women considering abortion, but also the hearts and minds of the workers inside who are engaged in the destructive business of abortion.

Over the past five years, a growing number of abortion workers across the country have had a change of heart and left their jobs. It’s a trend that is leading others to do the same.

“It does seem to be snowballing,” said Jewels Green, a former abortion worker just outside Philadelphia. Green started speaking out in 2011.

WASHINGTON — A bill to encourage freedom and respect for human rights, including religious liberty, in communist-run Vietnam was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives on Sept. 11.

“It is imperative that the United States Government send an unequivocal message to the Vietnamese regime that it must end its human rights abuses against its own citizens,” said Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., who authored the bill.

Smith, who chairs a House subcommittee on human rights, explained that the legislation would place limitations on U.S. aid to Vietnam until the government improves its human rights record, while at the same time allowing humanitarian assistance to continue as needed.

WASHINGTON — The Catholic vote is “too close to call,” a survey from a Catholic research center at Georgetown University indicates.

“The vote of Catholics remains quite evenly split: 47% for President Obama and 45% for Gov. Romney,” CARA (The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate) reported Sept. 17.

The statistically tied candidates have rarely topped 50% of the Catholic vote. The small percentage of Catholic registered voters will likely decide the winner of the Catholic vote in a country where one in four voters is Catholic.

CARA aggregated data from polls that surveyed a Catholic subgroup, including Pew, Gallup and TIPP.

Among Protestants, Romney leads the president by...READ MORE

LOS ANGELES — Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia told the Los Angeles Catholic Prayer Breakfast Sept. 18 that Catholics must take responsibility for the evangelization of the country and pursue this goal through humility and spiritual discipline.

“The task of preaching, teaching, growing and living the Catholic faith in our time, in this country, belongs to you and me. No one else can do it,” he told the crowd gathered outside the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

“The future depends on God, but he builds it with the living stones we give him by the example of our lives.”

During his remarks, he said Christians must rediscover God’s joy, “radiate” God’s word, and make their...READ MORE
