The night of Aug. 16 belonged to both Pope John Paul II, the great friend of the world’s young people and the Catholic faith of Spain.

With 500,000 young Catholic pilgrims gathered in central Madrid for the start of World Youth Day and the impending arrival of Pope Benedict XVI later in the week, the open-air Mass celebrated by the cardinal archbishop of Madrid, Antonio Ruoco, was marked by recalling the past and continuing spiritual presence of Blessed John Paul II in the lives of young Catholics throughout the world.

Cardinal Ruoco also called his fellow citizens of Spain to remember their Catholic roots and to see the week ahead as an opportunity to renew and strengthen their ancient...READ MORE

For Father Bourgeois, Today's the Day (5254)

As last chance to recant from his support for women’s ordination looms, the maverick Maryknoll priest holds on to his views.

COLUMBUS, Ga. — Father Roy Bourgeois sat in his modest apartment on Tuesday, Aug. 16 with only seven hours left to say two words: I recant.

These words would free him of a looming dismissal from the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America (Maryknoll). Father Bourgeois was ordered to recant his open campaign in favor of ordination of women as priests, a position in direct conflict with Church doctrine.

“Wednesday is the day,” Father Bourgeois said in a conversation with the Register on Aug. 16. “I poked the beehive of the patriarchy, and those bees got very upset with me. I am in very serious trouble. Yes, we have to obey our leaders. But above that is loyalty to conscience, and...READ MORE

Opening Mass Welcomes Pilgrims to WYD (2774)

Day 2 in Madrid: What an incredible, amazing day!

Today was so full that I cannot do justice to it. From the amazing guides provided by Youth in Europe (which will soon be changing its name to JMJ Youth), to the patient security guards on the crowded metro, it seems the Holy Spirit is touching everyone.

Our day began with a little clash in cultures — not Spain and the United States, but Northeast/Pennsylvania and Southeast/Alabama. Our groups both have the same guide, and our poor friends from Philly had to put up with us Alabamians running out the door.

We are not known for keeping schedules, and our completely opposite friends are perfectly themed, even down to their matching neon green T-shirts. It must be a case of divine Providence...READ MORE

NEW YORK — Catholic leaders in New York City are decrying a new mandate that students in the city’s public middle and high schools attend sex-education classes.

Beginning in the second semester of the 2011-2012 academic year, the city schools’ health curriculum will include lessons on puberty, birth control, teen pregnancy, preventing sexually transmitted diseases and getting help with sexual decisions, among several topics.

The New York City Department of Education says the curriculum will also include lessons on abstinence and purity, resisting sexual pressure and avoiding high-risk situations, but some classroom instructions would also have sixth- and seventh-grade students learning...READ MORE
