VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Pope Benedict XVI said on today’s feast of All Saints that everyone is called by Jesus to holiness in their own path toward sainthood.

“The liturgy reminds us today that the original vocation of every baptized person is holiness,” the Pope said in his Nov. 1 Angelus address from the window of his apartment that overlooks St. Peter’s Square.

Jesus Christ, “with the Father and the Holy Spirit, has loved the Church as his bride and gave himself for it in order to make her holy,” he emphasized.

He also reminded Catholics to see the Church as more than just a human institution.

Today, he said, “we are thus invited to look at the Church, not in its temporal...READ MORE

PHILADELPHIA — Two employees of Philadelphia’s notorious abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell, have pleaded guilty to third-degree murder. Adrienne Moton, 36, admitted Oct. 27 to killing babies delivered alive, while Sherry West, 52, admitted her role in the 2009 death of Karnamaya Mongar.

Mongar, a 41-year-old Bhutanese immigrant, was 19 weeks pregnant when West gave her an overdose of painkillers and anesthesia. The overdose killed both Mongar and her unborn child.

West is not being charged with the death of the child.

The women had no training or licensing for the work they did at the Women’s Medical Society in West Philadelphia. The business, operated by Gosnell, was described by...READ MORE

From a very young age, Amy Leung had a very special devotion to the saints.

This devotion later inspired her to create a Christian clothing line called Saintly Tees.

The Vancouver company offers a variety of baby T-shirts, onesies and bibs from its website (SaintlyTees.com). Each shirt has a cute illustration with a Scripture verse or Christian saying on the bottom. Size range is 0-3 months to 24 months.

Leung first got the idea for a clothing line while leading a youth retreat. During adoration, she was encouraging the teens to ask God what he wanted each of them to do.

As she recalled, “I asked myself those same questions, thinking about what God wants me to do. I thought about what...READ MORE

WASHINGTON (CNA)—The chair of the U.S. Catholic bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace is calling on the U.S. Senate to reauthorize a federal commission that advocates for religious freedom across the globe.

“Today the mission of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom is more important than ever,” said Bishop Howard Hubbard of Albany, N.Y., in an Oct. 27 letter.

“Ongoing attacks against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East and in other parts of the world point to the need to pay more, not less, attention to religious freedom.”

Bishop Hubbard urged the timely passage of a bill to renew funding for the independent, bipartisan...READ MORE

All Saints’ Day, Nov. 1, is a perfect time to remind children of their friends in heaven: the saints.

“Each one,” Pope Benedict told the faithful, “should have a saint that is familiar to him, to whom he feels close with prayer and intercession, but also to imitate him or her. Hence, I would like to invite you to know the saints better.” 

Books provide a wonderful starting point for young readers to become acquainted with these faithful friends and to develop a devotion to particular patron saints.

WASHINGTON (CNA)—Marriage advocates are warning that a repeal of the U.S. Defense of Marriage Act could have disastrous consequences for the nation, including the further erosion of religious liberty and a continued effort to legalize multiple-partner relationships.

“Marriage is critically important because the marriage-based family is the original and best Department of Health, Education and Welfare,” said Robert George, law professor at Princeton University.

George told CNA that a healthy marriage culture is “crucial to the overall success of any society.”

In an Oct. 28 interview, George responded to reports that the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to consider a bill on Nov. 3...READ MORE
