Catholic Charities Give Generously (1670)

11/25/2011 Comments (6)

WASHINGTON (CNA/EWTN News)—Officials with Catholic charities and relief agencies have asked people to remember both the needs of the poor at home and those facing humanitarian disasters overseas.

Generosity is “so central to our faith,” said Tom Price, the senior communications manager with Catholic Relief Services. “It is the reason for the existence of any Christian charity.”

He cited Pope Benedict XVI’s words in his 2005 encyclical Deus Caritas Est. There, the Pope said that, for the Catholic Church, charity is not “a kind of welfare activity” that could be left to others. Rather, charity is “a part of her nature, an indispensable expression of her very being.”

CHRISTOVAL, Texas — Father Fabian Rosetti had a dream. The Cuba-born Carmelite wanted to build a hermitage on land that would provide monks with the necessary isolation they needed.

He found a suitable tract in central Texas, but the man who owned it made it clear that he was not willing to help.

“He was very blunt,” Father Rosetti recalled of the encounter he had with the landowner in 1991. “He said to me, ‘I don’t like you, and these are my reasons why: One, you’re Catholic. Two, you’re a priest. And three, you’re Hispanic.’ He had no plans whatsoever of helping me.”

Yet, this outspoken Protestant would eventually soften and agree to let Father Rosetti use 200 acres of his property....READ MORE

Thanksgiving and the Eucharist (2197)

Editorial from our Nov. 20 issue.

11/24/2011 Comments (1)

Just a couple of days after our national feast of Thanksgiving, Catholics in America will receive a tremendous gift, one for which we will certainly be thankful: a reorientation of our worship and a consequent deepening of faith, thanks to a newly translated Roman Missal.

Our focus on Thanksgiving at the dinner table will shift to thanksgiving — Eucharist, to use the Greek-derived word — at the table of the Lord.

The new edition of the Roman Missal, issued for the Jubilee Year of 2000, is finally coming to our parishes in a translation that, by all accounts, will be well worth the wait. The choice of words, dictated by a Vatican-ordered fidelity to the original Latin, places a much-needed...READ MORE

Vatican Conference Will Discuss How Blessed John Paul II Helped the Sick (6717)

President of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers: 'We have to give testimony to his life and suffering so that people can know the good that John Paul II did for sick people.'

11/23/2011 Comment

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—The life, death and legacy of Blessed Pope John Paul II will take center stage at an international conference for health-care workers that begins Nov. 24 in Rome.

“We really hope this great Pope, great in life, great in suffering, great in death, will, even after his death, live on in our hearts,” said Archbishop Zygmunt Zimowski, president of the Pontifical Council for Health Care Workers, in remarks to EWTN News.

“Because there is a new generation who only know him through books and through pictures,” Archbishop Zimowski explained, “we have to give testimony to his life and suffering so that people can know the good that John Paul II did for sick people.”
