Statement of the Bishops of New York State (6064)

'This definition cannot change. ... Some will attempt to enact government sanctions against churches and religious organizations that preach these timeless truths.'

06/25/2011 Comments (57)

The following statement was issued by the bishops of New York state after the New York state Legislature passed a bill June 24 legalizing same-sex “marriage.”

The passage by the Legislature of a bill to alter radically and forever humanity’s historic understanding of marriage leaves us deeply disappointed and troubled.
We strongly uphold the Catholic Church’s clear teaching that we always treat our homosexual brothers and sisters with respect, dignity and love. But we just as strongly affirm that marriage is the joining of one man and one woman in a lifelong, loving union that is open to children, ordered for the good of those children and the spouses themselves. This definition cannot...READ MORE

The World of the Church Fathers (4623)

Saturday Book Pick: Jimmy Akin’s ‘Essential Guide’ to Patristics

06/25/2011 Comments (5)

Once upon a time, Catholics (in contrast to Protestants) were not well-acquainted with the Bible. Although Protestants generally remain more familiar with the Bible, Catholics today — thanks to the revised Lectionary, parish study groups and individual reading — know Scripture better than in the past.

Both Catholics and Protestants, however, share a common ignorance of Patristics, the study of the Church Fathers who lived from about A.D. 100-700.  The Orthodox and Eastern Catholics know the Fathers well, but Western Christians are largely unaware of the rich heritage of Patrology.

Jimmy Akin, a Protestant convert, Register blogger and devoted apologist with Catholic Answers, set out to...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA) — Pope Benedict XVI met with members of an Eastern Catholic aid organization on June 24, urging them to concentrate on the survival of threatened Christian populations in the Middle East.

“I ask you to do everything possible,” Pope Benedict told members of the Reunion of Organizations for Aid to the Oriental Churches (ROACO), “to ensure that the pastors and faithful of Christ can remain in the East, where they were born, not as strangers but as citizens who bear witness to Jesus Christ as the saints of the Eastern Churches did before them.”

ROACO, which coordinates the work of several agencies providing funds to the Eastern Catholic Churches, began four days...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA) —The Vatican’s new initiative aimed at sparking dialogue with atheists and agnostics may soon be coming to North America.

Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, told EWTN News in a recent interview that the “The Courtyard of the Gentiles” may come to three cities.

“Quebec in Canada, which is one of the so-called ‘most secular’ places there is, where it seems like these days the question of faith is almost bothersome,” he said. “And, also, we’re thinking about two U.S. cities: Chicago on the one hand and Washington on the other.”

The project was launched as an answer to the Pope’s call for a “New Evangelization.” It...READ MORE
