A Spiritual Father to a New Flock (3782)

Bishop Robert Vasa reflects on first year shepherding the Diocese of Santa Rosa.

06/15/2012 Comments (4)

Moving from the Diocese of Baker in rural eastern Oregon to the San Francisco Bay Area has been a major transition for Bishop Robert Vasa. He has traveled far from the Lincoln, Neb., farm where he grew up, the grandson of Czech immigrants, and now leads a large and diverse diocese. But he hasn’t let the transfer impede his drive to be a spiritual father to his flock.

Since becoming bishop of the Diocese of Santa Rosa, Calif., one year ago, he has become fully engaged as shepherd of 171,887 Catholics living within his 11,711-square-mile diocese, stretching from Petaluma to the Oregon border. Last August, he invited two sisters from the Spokane, Wash.-based Sisters of Mary, Mother of the...READ MORE

June is the traditional month dedicated to the Sacred Heart, and the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus on the Friday following the Second Sunday after Pentecost. This year it falls on June 15. What better time to enthrone the Sacred Heart of Jesus as King of yourself, your home and your family?

“Our Lord himself has provided us with a most wonderful way to welcome him into our homes,” wrote Cardinal Burke to his flock in 2004, when he was archbishop of St. Louis.

Jesus was welcomed by St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, to whom he appeared at her convent in Paray-le-Monial, France, from 1673 to 1675. He revealed his Sacred Heart to her, as depicted in statues and...READ MORE

Archbishop Lori: Labeling Knights of Columbus Partisan Is an Injustice (5743)

At bishops' meeting, head of religious-freedom committee responds to a reporter's question about funding.

– CNA US Catholic News

ATLANTA -- Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore argued that it is an “injustice” to imply that the Knights of Columbus’ support for defending religious freedom creates a sense of partisanship.

At a June 13 press conference at the U.S. bishops’ spring general meeting in Atlanta, the archbishop was questioned by Jerry Filteau of the National Catholic Reporter about funding for the bishops’ campaign to defend religious liberty.

Filteau said that he had heard “rumors” that much of the funding for the bishops’ effort is coming from the Knights of Columbus, whose head, Carl Anderson, is a former Reagan administration official.

He suggested that there may be “a partisanship aspect to the...READ MORE

National Character Test: Morality and Religious Freedom Matter (1782)

June 17 issue editorial for Flag Day.

06/14/2012 Comment

Painfully high unemployment figures have led many political commentators to insist that the upcoming presidential race is — to repeat the tired refrain — “about the economy, stupid,” a phrase first used in the 1992 presidential election year. In other words, American jobseekers will  shrug off other concerns and vote solely on the basis of bottom-line goals.

Yet what has always been distinctive about our culture, as Alexis de Tocqueville presciently observed in his masterwork, Democracy in America, is that our experiment in ordered liberty depends on the strength of our national character, and that means social issues and moral principles matter.

In our history, religious movements...READ MORE

ATLANTA — As the U.S. bishops continue their battle against the federal government’s contraception mandate, they have been under increasing pressure to focus on a defense of the free exercise of Catholic institutions and set aside the issue of conscience protections for individual employers who oppose the new law on religious or moral grounds.

But Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore, the chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, yesterday embraced the conscience rights for small businessmen and other employers who oppose the inclusion of contraception, abortion drugs and sterilization in private employee health plans.
