VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News)—Nobody is “worthy” of the call of Christ, and yet Jesus still calls everybody to him, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr of Cincinnati said at the tomb of St. Peter on Feb. 1.

Archbishop Schnurr said he often hears young men who think they are called to the priesthood exclaim, “Archbishop, I’m not worthy of that!”

“But that’s the point, isn’t it?” he said. “None of us is worthy to be considered an instrument of God, shaping his Church, shaping his people, making them into the livings stones upon which the Church is built.”

Yet, “in humility, we accept that role,” especially since anything can be achieved by a person “filled with Christ and filled with confidence in...READ MORE

Catholic leaders of both religious and secular businesses across the country are denouncing the Obama administration’s contraception mandate for forcing a moral dilemma on them and negatively impacting their companies.

Jonathan Reyes, president of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Denver, said that the “horrific” decision is a “violation of conscience” that will negatively impact his ability to operate his business.

On Jan. 20, the Department of Health and Human Services finalized a “preventative services” mandate that will require virtually all employers to purchase health-insurance plans that cover sterilization and contraception.

JERUSALEM — When Pope Benedict XVI announced that New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan was to be elevated to cardinal on Feb. 18, many people expected the popular archbishop of New York to cancel a Holy Land retreat he had planned to lead.

But Cardinal-designate Dolan, who heads the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, wouldn’t hear of it. He didn’t want to disappoint either the 50 New York-area priests who were scheduled to accompany him or the Holy Land Christians who had long anticipated their visit.

Also, Cardinal-designate Dolan yearned for the retreat as a way to spiritually prepare for the challenges his new position will entail.

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Christians should trust in the loving providence of God, even when going through dark periods in life, Pope Benedict XVI said in his Feb. 1 general audience.

“In prayer we must be able to bring before God our fatigue, the suffering of certain situations and of certain days, our daily struggle to follow him and to be Christians, and even the weight of evil we see within us and around us, because he gives us hope, makes us aware of his nearness, and gives us a little light on the path of life,” he said.

Pope Benedict offered his reflections to thousands of pilgrims who gathered in the Vatican’s Paul VI Hall.

His address continued an ongoing series on the...READ MORE

Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua Dies at 88 (3150)

The Philadelphia archbishop was instrumental in implementing the new Code of Canon Law, serving on the Pro-Life Activities Committee and in immigration services.

PHILADELPHIA — Bells tolled from St. Martin’s Chapel on the campus of Philadelphia’s St. Charles Borromeo Seminary last night, announcing the death of Cardinal Anthony Bevilacqua. The 88-year-old cardinal died in his sleep in his apartment at the seminary.

With the death of Cardinal Bevilacqua, who was the retired archbishop of Philadelphia, the Church in the United States lost its second cardinal in less than two months. Cardinal John Foley died Dec. 11 in the archdiocese’s home for retired priests.

Cardinal Bevilacqua, who fought cancer and dementia recently, led his flock of 1.5 million members from 1988 until he retired in 2003.

DENVER (CNA)—Former Mexican soap-opera-star-turned-pro-life-activist Eduardo Verastegui told a crowd of more than 500 that he thinks abortion in the U.S. will one day come to an end.

“I think we will see regeneration and the end of abortion in this country,” he said at a sold-out Jan. 26 fundraiser for Lighthouse Pregnancy Center in Denver.

Verastegui gave his testimony about growing up in a pro-life country and eventually seeing Mexico City legalize abortion.

“Pro-choice, pro-life, all that; all those terms in Mexico didn’t exist until a few years ago, when Mexico City passed that horrible law.”

Although abortion was legalized in Mexico City in 2007, 19 states have since passed...READ MORE
