MADRID — Archbishop Gerhard Ludwig Müller, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, urged Catholics in Spain to embrace Church teaching as the foundation for a better society.

“We cannot lose the courage to proclaim the Gospel today,” said Archbishop Müller in an interview with COPE Radio on Jan. 28.

He explained that the Catholic Church has a “much better” understanding of human needs than the secular ideologies that are embraced by many politicians.

The archbishop underscored that the “secularist” mentality cannot provide an adequate response to man’s sufferings, to his existential problems or to what lies beyond death.

Nor can such a mentality...READ MORE

Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of Americans United for Life

WASHINGTON — Amid changing abortion rhetoric and significant legislative advances, a group of legal experts in the nation’s capital said that they are confident in the future of the pro-life movement.

“In this epic struggle,” said Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, “my money’s on the baby.”

Hosting a Jan. 24 symposium in Washington, Yoest and other speakers discussed changes in rhetoric surrounding the abortion debate, as well as growing legislative efforts in the 40 years since the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton decisions established a national “right” to abortion at any time, for any reason, during a woman’s pregnancy.

WASHINGTON — Surgical and medical abortions are associated with a host of untold and under-reported medical and psychological risks, said a panel of doctors at a recent conference in the nation’s capital.

“Abortion reporting has been a major impediment in receiving accurate information about abortion complications,” said Dr. Monique Chireau, assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Duke University School of Medicine.

She added that “improved abortion reporting, informed consent and public information regarding abortion complications should help reduce abortion rates.”

Chireau was part of a medical panel that spoke at the Americans United for Life Symposium on Jan. 24 in...READ MORE

MADRID — A replica image of Our Lady of Czestochowa is currently traveling throughout Spain on a pro-life and pro-family pilgrimage that will span 24 countries and more than 18,000 miles.

Dubbed “From Ocean to Ocean,” the tour began last September in Vladivostok on Russia’s Pacific coast and will conclude at the Shrine of Fatima on the Atlantic coast of Portugal.

Organizers of the tour hope that “the number of people who discover and defend the dignity of the human being from conception to natural death will continuously increase.”

The famous image of Mary, normally housed at the Jasna Gora Shrine in Poland, has been in Spain since Dec. 15, visiting more than 25 dioceses.

U.S. Bishops: Redefining Marriage Creates ‘Engine of Conflict’ (2438)

In a pair of Supreme Court legal briefs, the bishops warn against problems arising from a redefinition to include homosexual relationships.

01/30/2013 Comments (1)

WASHINGTON — In recent legal briefs filed with the Supreme Court, the U.S. bishops warned that a redefinition of marriage would create an “engine of conflict” that threatens freedom of religion, speech and other liberties.

“Marriage, understood as the union of one man and one woman, is not a historical relic, but a vital and foundational institution of civil society today,” said the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in a Jan. 29 amicus brief supporting the California ballot initiative Proposition 8.

“The government interests in continuing to encourage and support it are not merely legitimate, but compelling,” the brief explained.

California voters passed Prop. 8 in 2008, reversing...READ MORE
