VATICAN CITY (EWTN NEWS)—Pope Benedict XVI believes that in a noisy world of constant communication people need silence more than ever.

He outlined his thoughts in his message for World Communications Day 2012, which is entitled “Silence and Word: Path of Evangelization.” The Pope’s letter was released Jan. 24 at the Vatican press office by Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, head of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.

“When messages and information are plentiful, silence becomes essential if we are to distinguish what is important from what is insignificant or secondary,” the Pope says in a statement that will be read in Catholic churches around the world on May 20, 2012.

On Jan. 19, we published an article on a renewed effort by some legislators in New Jersey to legally redefine marriage. The article referenced a statement issued by New Jersey bishops in 2009, when such a legislative redefinition was first attempted in the state.

On Jan. 20, the Catholic bishops of New Jersey issued a new statement on the defense of marriage. We would like to present that statement in its entirety here.

Washington Gov. Christine Gregoire intends to sign a bill that would redefine marriage, but the National Organization for Marriage wants to prevent the bill from getting to her desk in the first place.

Gregoire, a Democrat who is not seeking re-election, recently changed course on the issue and requested the legislation to change the legal definition of marriage.

Washingtonians voted against this stance in 1998 when...READ MORE

March for Life 2012 dawned cold and rainy. For the thousands of young people who have grown up making the yearly trip to D.C., harsh weather conditions are nothing new.

We come because we are the generation who has been hurt by abortion; youth are missing countless brothers, sisters, cousins, friends ...

Although the day was gloomy, the crowd was joyful, if not a bit too exuberant at times. For once, the group I was with made it to the rally early. We were right in front of the main stage and saw and heard the testimonies...READ MORE
