Kansas City, Kan. (EWTN News/CNA) — At a Kansas City conference on end-of-life care, Cardinal Raymond Burke said that suffering does not cause a person to have less meaning in his life, nor does it give the government the right to decide if that person should live or die.

“No matter how much a life is diminished, no matter what suffering the person is undergoing, that life demands the greatest respect and care,” Cardinal Burke, prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, the Vatican’s highest court, told EWTN News.

“It’s never right to snuff out a life because it’s in some way under heavy burden.”

Cardinal Burke spoke July 23 to a packed auditorium of more than 350 people at the Archdiocese of...READ MORE

Pope Talks About Good vs. Evil and Prays for Norway Massacre Victims (2024)

Holy Father: 'In reality, the true quality of our own life and that of society depends on a person’s rightly formed conscience, and on everyone’s capacity to recognize good, separating it from evil, and to try and bring it about patiently to contribute to the cause of justice and peace.'

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (EWTN News/CNA) — Pope Benedict XVI issued a “heartfelt” plea to all on July 24, following the terrorist attacks in Norway. He called on everyone to “abandon forever the path of hatred and escape from the logic of evil,” as he offered his prayers for the victims and their families.

The Pope said that the news of the bombing in downtown Oslo and the subsequent shooting at a youth camp caused him deep sorrow and left him grief-stricken.

The July 22 attacks began when Anders Behring Breivik — by his own admission — detonated a car bomb at the government headquarters in downtown Oslo. That attack took the lives of seven people and injured many more.

Philly's New Shepherd (3022)

A Register Editorial: Archbishop Chaput is a trailblazer with a knack for advancing the claims of faith in the public square.

07/24/2011 Comments (12)

During a time of mounting challenge for the U.S. Catholic hierarchy, Pope Benedict XVI appointed a new Church leader for Philadelphia: Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver. He’s a trailblazer with a knack for advancing the claims of faith in the public square, explaining inconvenient truths to pro-choice politicians, and reinvigorating the religious identity of Church institutions.

Some leaders of Catholic universities and social agencies see their religious legacy as a threat to greater government subsidies or secular prestige. The archbishop contends that if our outreach isn’t deeply Christ-centered, we shouldn’t call it “Catholic.” He’s also prepared to cross swords with self-identified...READ MORE

Spanish Civil War: 75 Years Later (6788)

Church and society still feeling the effects of brutal, convulsive conflict.

07/24/2011 Comments (14)

A photo which ran in the London Daily Mail showing Republicans shooting at a statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus during the Spanish Civil War. The Church suffered some of the worst persecution in its history, and Popes are still beatifying martyrs from that time.

MADRID — On July 17, Catholic churches in Spain marked with sadness and prayer the 75th anniversary of a brutal, convulsive, three-year conflict. For the Catholic Church, the Spanish Civil War was a low point in a century with a lot of lows.

When Pope Benedict XVI meets with hundreds of thousands of young people gathered in Spain next month for this year’s celebration of World Youth Day, he will encounter a Spain that was deeply influenced by the war, three quarters of a century earlier.

“I was 6 years old in July 1936 when the war started,” remembers Ismael Virto, a U.S. representative of Spain’s University of Navarra. “There was a knock on the door, and it was the militia —...READ MORE

Refreshingly Christ-Centered (2569)

Saturday Book Pick: Orbis, Maryknoll’s publishing house, showing signs of being more comfortable with the magisterium. A volume on world religions and another on Catholic social teaching provide evidence.

07/23/2011 Comment

Few might accuse Orbis Books of regularly publishing works clearly reflecting the magisterium’s teaching on world religions. Now, something may be changing.

One thing recent work, Catholic Engagement With World Religions: A Comprehensive Study, aspires to do just this. Engagement is a thoroughly engaging work on the “state of the question” of ecclesial reflection within the sphere of Catholic interreligious dialogue. This is examined in light of that restatement of Catholic teaching — by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger — entitled Dominus Iesus (“The Lord Jesus.”)  Though this is the latest installment in the Orbis “Faith Meets Faith” series (which has offered works not only by such...READ MORE
