VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News) — Pentecost shows the Holy Spirit created the Catholic Church for all people, Pope Benedict said in his homily to mark Pentecost Sunday, June 12.

“From the first moment, in fact, the Holy Spirit created (the Church) as the Church of all people. It embraces the entire world, transcending the boundaries of race, class, nation — it breaks down all barriers and unites people in the profession of the Triune God. From the beginning, the Church is one, catholic and apostolic,” said the Pope to a packed St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Pentecost is the one of the most prominent feast days in the Christian calendar. It is often referred to as the “birthday of the...READ MORE

NEW YORK — Nestled deep inside Manhattan’s dark, concrete canyons is a tiny, red-brick church that enkindles the light of hope. The Church of St. Francis of Assisi in New York City fights the good fight against urban poverty and despair by witnessing to Christ’s message. One way the parish’s Franciscan friars do this is by distributing bread to those in need, particularly on June 13, the feast of St. Anthony of Padua.

This year, the church will distribute 80,000 loaves of bread on the feast, in memory of the Franciscan saint’s care and concern for the poor.

A banner over the hall in which the bread distribution is held greets volunteers. It reads: “For those who have to share with those...READ MORE

Strong Catholic Identity Can Protect Religious Liberty (3935)

What increasing threats to colleges mean in light of Ex Corde Ecclesiae.

06/13/2011 Comments (4)

The National Labor Relations Board and the Vatican agree: Catholic colleges should have a strong Catholic identity.

And given increasing threats to the religious liberty of Catholic institutions, that may be a valuable lesson to learn. Legal experts warn that a weak Catholic identity makes for a weak defense against religious-liberty violations.

On May 26, the NLRB’s Chicago director concluded that St. Xavier University, a Sisters of Mercy apostolate, could not demonstrate a “substantial religious character” and, therefore, must accept the NLRB’s authority over faculty union organizing. In January, the agency’s New York office also claimed jurisdiction over Manhattan College, a Christian...READ MORE

Marriage vs. 'Marriage' (3701)

A Register Editorial: Our style reflects an important Church teaching.

06/12/2011 Comments (23)

A recent interview posted at NCRegister.com received quite a bit of attention, particularly from people identifying themselves in online comments as homosexual.

The interview was with Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, R.I., in which the bishop offered his thoughts on a controversy in his state over same-sex civil unions. Bishop Tobin’s fear is that settling for this compromise with same-sex “marriage” will leave the door open for that very thing: same-sex “marriage.”

One of the criticisms of the Register’s presentation of this interview, aside from the substance of Bishop Tobin’s argument, was this newspaper’s practice of placing quotation marks around “marriage” when referring to homosexual...READ MORE
