ROME (CNA/EWTN News) —The effort to renew the evangelization of mankind begins in the human heart, Pope Benedict XVI told the clergy, religious and laity of the Diocese of Rome on June 13.

“To be effective, the proclamation of faith must begin with a heart that believes, hopes, loves; a heart that loves Christ and believes in the power of the Holy Spirit!” the Pope told those gathered at St. John Lateran Cathedral for the Rome Diocese’s annual convention.

The Pope pointed to how St. Peter’s proclamation of Jesus’ resurrection at Pentecost was “not confined to a simple list of facts,” but “cut to the heart” of those who heard him.

WASHINGTON (CNA) — The Catholic University of America plans to return to single-sex dormitories to reduce binge drinking and the “culture of hooking up,” university president John Garvey has announced.

“Next year all freshmen at The Catholic University of America will be assigned to single-sex residence halls. The year after, we will extend the change to the sophomore halls,” he wrote in The Wall Street Journal. “It will take a few years to complete the transformation.”

The intellect and virtue are connected and influence one another, he said, and this means that colleges and universities should concern themselves with virtue as well as intellect.

“The goals we set for ourselves are...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — The early-morning sun is rising over Capitol Hill as Jesuit Father Patrick Conroy walks up the marble steps of the Capitol building.

He passes through a hall of marble statues on his way to his office underneath the famed Capitol Rotunda. He then makes his way to the House of Representatives chamber, where, as the new chaplain, he will offer a short prayer to open the day’s legislative business.

“This is one of those things where you almost can’t believe it’s happening,” Father Conroy said during a recent interview.

Father Conroy, 60, was still meeting lawmakers and their staff members and learning when and where the various congressional prayer meetings are held.

VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News) — Pentecost shows the Holy Spirit created the Catholic Church for all people, Pope Benedict said in his homily to mark Pentecost Sunday, June 12.

“From the first moment, in fact, the Holy Spirit created (the Church) as the Church of all people. It embraces the entire world, transcending the boundaries of race, class, nation — it breaks down all barriers and unites people in the profession of the Triune God. From the beginning, the Church is one, catholic and apostolic,” said the Pope to a packed St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Pentecost is the one of the most prominent feast days in the Christian calendar. It is often referred to as the “birthday of the...READ MORE

Giving Bread Like St. Anthony (3190)

Manhattan parish carries on centuries-old tradition, especially in tough economic times.

NEW YORK — Nestled deep inside Manhattan’s dark, concrete canyons is a tiny, red-brick church that enkindles the light of hope. The Church of St. Francis of Assisi in New York City fights the good fight against urban poverty and despair by witnessing to Christ’s message. One way the parish’s Franciscan friars do this is by distributing bread to those in need, particularly on June 13, the feast of St. Anthony of Padua.

This year, the church will distribute 80,000 loaves of bread on the feast, in memory of the Franciscan saint’s care and concern for the poor.

A banner over the hall in which the bread distribution is held greets volunteers. It reads: “For those who have to share with those...READ MORE
