Pope: Follow Elijah's Example (2328)

'Let us be ever more convinced of the power of intercessory prayer, so that we can help all people to know the one true God, to turn away from every form of idolatry, and to receive the grace offered to us on the wood of the cross and in the fire of the Holy Spirit,' Benedict said.

VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News) — “When God disappears, man falls into the slavery of idolatry,” Pope Benedict XVI said at his June 15 general audience in St. Peter’s Square, the sixth Wednesday audience delivered by the Holy Father on the topic of prayer.

This phenomenon, he said, is clearly “shown by the totalitarian regimes of our time and with various forms of nihilism, which make man dependent on idols and idolatry, which enslave.”

The Pope said that this “seduction” of “the illusion of being able to ‘serve two masters’” has been a “constant temptation to believers” throughout salvation history.

To make his case, Pope Benedict drew upon the Old Testament story of the prophet Elijah....READ MORE

New York Marriage Vote Looms (2080)

NEW YORK (CNA) — New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan is concerned that state senators might “reinvent the very definition” of marriage — society’s basic institution — as five more lawmakers pledged to support a same-sex “marriage” bill.

“Not every desire, urge, want or chic cause is automatically a ‘right,’” the archbishop explained in his June 14 blog post titled “The True Meaning of Marriage.” True freedom, he said, is not “the license to do whatever we want, but the liberty to do what we ought.”

Later that day, Gov. Andrew Cuomo presented the “Marriage Equality Act” to the state Legislature after a key Republican senator voiced support for it. Four Democrats who previously voted...READ MORE

KRAKOW, Poland (CNA) — A reliquary of Blessed Pope John Paul II’s blood has been placed in the altar of a new church in Krakow named for him.

Krakow is the city where he rose from being a parish priest to archbishop.

Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow said in a Mass that the blood recalls the sacrifice John Paul II made in serving Christ when he was shot by a Turkish gunman in 1981.

He also invoked Pope John Paul II’s slogan: “Be not afraid!”

Leading churchmen in attendance at the ceremony included apostolic nuncio Archbishop Celestino Migliore, Archbishop Kazimierz Nycz of Warsaw, Cardinal Franciszek Marcharski and Cardinal Stanslaw Nagy, according to the John Paul II Institute.

Patrick Fagan is the director of the Marriage and Religion Research Institute (MARRI). A clinical psychologist by training, he decided to create the institute because research showing the positive impact of religion and marriage was being underreported or ignored by the popular media, policymakers and public figures.

A growing body of research shows marriage and religious practice improve the lives of parents and children — and society as a whole. The enormous impact of religious attendance on the school success of poor black children is just one example.

MARRI conducts its own research, but its biggest project is to synthesize the research of others and produce, over the next 10 years,...READ MORE
