LOS ANGELES (CNA)—Dolores Hope, the widow of entertainer Bob Hope and a supporter of many Catholic charities, was a Catholic of “deep, abiding faith,” Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles said in tribute to her life.

“Both the entertainment world and the Church have lost a woman of profound faith, gifted musical talent and dedication to the betterment of peoples worldwide. The death of Dolores Hope leaves a huge void in Southern California,” he said.

“May she now enter into that eternal life and light prepared for her by the God whom she loved so fully and deeply.”

She died Sept. 19 at the age of 102.

She was born Dolores DeFina in New York on May 27, 1909. During the 1930s she sang in...READ MORE

ROME — Pope Benedict XVI is “as normal as ever,” his elder brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, has said in a candid interview published Sept. 18.

Ratzinger spoke openly and affectionately about the Holy Father, sharing what the two hold in common, how the Pope is coping with the papacy, and looking ahead to his younger brother’s four-day visit to his homeland this week.

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (CNA)—Pope Benedict XVI gave a rare television address in which he urged Germans to restore God to their horizon, just before he travels to the country later this week.

“I am very happy to be departing for Germany in a few days time,” said the Pope on the German religious program Wort Zum Sontag (Word on Sunday). The brief address was recorded several days ago in his summer residence of Castel Gandolfo. Word on Sunday has been running on German television for more than 50 years; each week it features a priest or pastor with a sermon. Pope John Paul II appeared on the same program back in 1987.

NEW YORK — The election of a little-known Republican businessman to a congressional seat long held by Democrats underscores widespread voter discontent with the country’s current direction, say political commentators.

Bob Turner, the former cable television executive who won the Sept. 13 special election to fill the seat vacated by disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner, ran his campaign as a referendum on President Obama’s policies and said voters’ frustrations with the administration were “at the bottom line” of his victory over New York Assemblyman David Weprin, the better-financed Democratic candidate.

“The present administration is being held responsible for a sagging economy, lack of...READ MORE

LOS ANGELES (EWTN News)—Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles urged local Catholics to respond to the late Pope John Paul II’s call to re-evangelize modern society during a multicultural Mass on Sept. 17.

In “this holy Mass, this celebration of all the cultures in the family of God, let us renew our promise: that this great Church of Los Angeles may always be a sign that God is near, that in his loving eyes we are all his children, and that no one is a stranger to any of us,” the archbishop said.

The annual Mass, held at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, was streamed live by the archdiocese in honor of the vast number of ethnicities in the local Church. The Mass is offered in 42...READ MORE

Archbishop Dolan: Clergy Should Speak Out About Unemployment and Poverty (2351)

'We pray for those who need work. We lift up the poor and suffering. We ask God's guidance for our nation.'

09/20/2011 Comments (10)

WASHINGTON (EWTN News/CNA)—Bishops and other Catholic clergy should speak about unemployment and poverty in their homilies, U.S. bishops’ conference president Archbishop Timothy Dolan said Sept. 19.

“Widespread unemployment, underemployment and pervasive poverty are diminishing human lives, undermining human dignity, and hurting children and families,” Archbishop Dolan said. “I hope we can use our opportunities as pastors, teachers and leaders to focus public attention and priority on the scandal of so much poverty and so many without work in our society.”

The archbishop of New York said that 46 million people, 15% of the population, now live in poverty in the U.S. Recent unemployment...READ MORE
