BOSTON (CNA) — Iraqi Sister Olga Yaqob is beginning a women’s religious order in the Boston Archdiocese this year to carry out the Church’s mission to evangelize.
“Our main spirituality will focus on Jesus, and then carry his presence out into the world,” Sister Olga told CNA on June 21.

“I have seen a lot of spiritual poverty in our country: people who are spiritually hungry,” she said. “They don’t know what kind of loving Father we have, what kind of beautiful faith our Catholic Church has.”

The 44 year-old sister — known for her tireless energy and beloved by her students — responded to an invitation from Cardinal Sean O’Malley to start the new order and is leaving her current post as...READ MORE

ST. LOUIS (EWTN News) — Organizers of a June 24-26 Eucharistic Congress in St. Louis have produced a video that has been called “the movie trailer for the Eucharist” to draw local and worldwide attention to the peace that is found only in Christ’s presence.

The video, which already has over 2,000 hits on YouTube, juxtaposes the accelerated but draining lifestyle of the world and the animating quality of an...READ MORE

Thomas More's Legacy (3138)

Cardinal Raymond Burke recalls Christian witness of June 22's saint.

06/22/2011 Comment

– Wikipedia

ROME (CNA/EWTN News) — Cardinal Raymond Burke spoke with CNA about the inspiration he draws from the life and work of St. Thomas More, the patron of lawyers, whose feast day is June 22.

“I’ve always found him a font of courage,” said Cardinal Burke, prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura in Rome, the Vatican’s highest court.

“Oftentimes as a Christian — and especially as a priest or bishop — one is tempted by pressures to conform to society’s expectations instead of modeling oneself on the expectations of Our Lord.

“So St. Thomas More is really the example of how we need to — if we really want to do what is good and right — act according to Our Lord’s way and not...READ MORE

Obama and the United Nations (2117)

Is the current administration responsible for first U.N. homosexual-rights resolution?

06/22/2011 Comments (2)

NEW YORK (CNA) — State Department officials say the United Nation’s first-ever resolution on “sexual orientation and gender identity” represents an international victory for the Obama administration’s policy agenda.

“This is really a paradigmatic example of using the U.N. system to advance one of President Obama’s top policy priorities,” said Suzanne Nossel, deputy assistant secretary of state for international organization affairs, after the resolution’s passage on June 17. “We’ve been able to deliver on broad international support behind an agenda that we have set as a key goal for this administration.”

During the media briefing, the deputy assistant secretary of state for democracy,...READ MORE

Marchers and protesters rally at the steps of Los Angeles City Hall in 2008 in protest of passage of California's Proposition 8 banning same-sex 'marriage.' Some opponents of Prop. 8 have been accused of bullying supporters.

WASHINGTON — Last year, a Rutgers University student committed suicide after “friends” live-streamed his sexual encounter with another man. His death prompted a slew of media headlines and surveys charting a rise in “gay bashing,” a trend that homosexual-rights activists blamed, in part, on political and religious opposition to “marriage equality.”

More recently, the “bully” label was applied to the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), after the homosexual-rights group successfully lobbied a top law firm to drop its commitment to defend the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). A Washington Post editorial asserted that HRC “sullies itself and its cause by resorting to bullying tactics,” challenging a...READ MORE
