VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA)—Pope Benedict XVI reminded Christians Oct. 12 to thank God for the good things in life, instead of only bringing problems to him.

“Dear brothers and sisters, in our prayers, we should look at how often, in the events of our lives, the Lord has protected us, guided us, helped us,” the Pope said at his general audience in St. Peter’s Square.

He encouraged Christians to “be more attentive to the good things that the Lord gives us. We are always attentive to the problems, difficulties and almost do not want to see that there are good things come from the Lord.”

In his latest discourse on prayer, Pope Benedict dwelt on Psalm 126. It charts the joy of the Jewish...READ MORE

MADISON, Wis. (EWTN News) — Citing a need for reverence, Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison, Wis., has asked priests to move in the direction of giving Communion only in the form of the Host and not the Precious Blood and to limit occasions when both kinds are distributed.

“What we say and do at the Mass, and what we do before the Lord present in the tabernacle, matters,” he said in an Oct. 10 letter to his diocese’s priests.

Bishop Morlino cited the new edition of the Roman Missal’s instruction on Communion under both species. It says the diocesan bishop may permit this whenever it seems appropriate to a pastor, provided that the faithful are “well instructed” and there is “no danger of...READ MORE

WASHINGTON (EWTN News) — A new bill introduced by U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., would require abortion providers to make an unborn child’s heartbeat visible and audible to its mother in order for her to give her informed consent for an abortion.

“A pregnant woman who enters an abortion clinic is faced with a decision that will forever change two lives,” said Bachmann. “That’s why she must have the very best information with which to make that decision.”

The Heartbeat Informed Consent Act, which was introduced in Congress on Oct. 6, is similar to laws in several states that require a pregnant woman to be given the chance to see ultrasound images of her unborn child before she...READ MORE

The New Missal Translation: Renewing Awe and Wonder (3248)

Bishop Vasa explains how it will help the Church grow in faith.

10/12/2011 Comments (3)

Bishop Robert Vasa is the bishop of Santa Rosa, Calif. Like all bishops throughout the country, he is planning to implement the new English translation of the Mass on the First Sunday of Advent.

Liturgy, the prayer of the Church, reveals our faith and our life. Liturgy is that timeless place in time where man encounters God in a communion of love. How we pray forms the foundation for how we believe.

Bishop Vasa spoke about what the Church is trying to show us with the new translation of the Roman Missal.

What is liturgy?

The liturgy is the work of Jesus. It is the work of God in our midst. There has been a great emphasis since the 1960s on what we are doing for God as opposed to what...READ MORE

WASHINGTON (EWTN News) — Ninety percent of priests say they are happy. One priest who has studied priests’ happiness says a feeling of inner peace, a positive view of celibacy, and a good relationship with God contributes to their happiness.

Msgr. Stephen Rossetti, clinical associate professor of pastoral studies and associate dean for seminary and ministerial programs at Catholic University of America, presented his findings Oct. 5 at a symposium on the priesthood held at Catholic University in Washington. He discusses his findings in his book Why Priests are Happy: A Study of the Psychological and Spiritual Health of Priests.

Other studies corroborate his findings on priests’ happiness....READ MORE
