LOS ANGELES (CNA) — The new translation of the Mass promises to help Catholics “enter more deeply into the mystery of the faith” in a way that continues the Second Vatican Council’s liturgical renewal, Archbishop José Gomez has said.

“We become what we pray,” he wrote in his Aug. 20 column in the Los Angeles archdiocesan paper The Tidings. “The prayer of our Eucharistic worship is meant to make us become more like Jesus Christ.”

The words Christians pray, and how they pray, shape their beliefs and how they live out their beliefs, he explained.

Those words will now change in Catholic parishes across the United States with the implementation of the third edition of the Roman Missal, set to...READ MORE

WASHINGTON (CNA) — Several Catholics known for supporting Obama administration policies are opposing the lack of religious-conscience protections in rules requiring most new health plans to cover contraception and sterilization.

In an open letter issued Aug. 26, the self-described “ad hoc group of Catholic leaders and professors” called on Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sibelius “to extend conscience protection to religious charities, religious hospitals and religious schools in regards to mandated health-insurance coverage” under the 2010 Affordable Care Act.

The signatories, many of whom also signed an earlier letter criticizing House Speaker John Boehner in May, cited the...READ MORE

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CNA) — Public action is needed to defeat a California bill that would allow children as young as 12 to consent to Gardasil vaccines without parental permission. Opponents say the proposal is a violation of parents’ rights and is motivated by the desire to prepare children for sexual activity.

“We’re encouraging people to spread the word, to write letters to the editor, to contact state senators,” said Bill May, chairman of the San Francisco-based Catholics for the Common Good. “This bill has not received very much publicity in the mainstream press.”

“It’s a blatant violation of parental rights to put children in a position of being coerced into receiving vaccinations...READ MORE
