Ignatius Press, 2012

While familiarity is generally a good thing, the liturgy of...READ MORE

The feast of the Holy Innocents on Dec. 28 — celebrated in the Church as early as the fifth century to recall and honor the children of Bethlehem martyred because of Our Lord shortly after he was born — has taken on added meaning for many in St. Paul, Minn.

There, the Knights of Columbus' Saint Paul Council 397, based at St. Mary Church, has instituted an annual prayer event officially called the Knights’ Rosary for Love and Life today.

Members and others gather in St. Paul’s Midway section for this prayer event in front of the city’s Planned Parenthood. Considered the country’s third-largest abortion facility, the building is near the University of Minnesota and many other college...READ MORE

‘The joy of Christmas is overshadowed by the staggering violence in Syria,’ the patriarch lamented in his Dec. 20 message.

JERUSALEM — The Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem, Fouad Twal, has issued a Christmas message that both laments the violence and refugee situation in the Middle East and calls on Christians to live out their faith.

“The joy of Christmas is overshadowed by the staggering violence in Syria,” he said Dec. 20.

He noted the Catholic Church’s work to assist 250,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan, saying this shows the Church is “full of compassion for the victims.”

Conflict between rebel forces and the Syrian government has killed tens of thousands of people and driven many more from their homes.

The refugees are mainly women and children who need food, shelter, medical treatment and clothes.
