MADRID (EWTN News/CNA) — Archbishop Timothy Dolan predicts that the recent redefinition of marriage in New York will have a “big impact” on future attempts by young people to build up Catholic family life.

“That’s a good example of how our young people find, very often, the culture of our society to be at odds with what they treasure as Catholics,” the archbishop of New York told EWTN News on Aug. 17 prior to an evening prayer service for hundreds of young New Yorkers at World Youth Day.

Gay “marriage” became legal in New York state last month following the passage of the Marriage Equality Act in the state Legislature by 33 votes to 29. The approved bill was signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo...READ MORE

World Youth Day kicks off Aug. 16 in Madrid, Spain, with a projected record number of participants in a country with a distinctly Catholic history.

Despite the distance, many American young people plan a pilgrimage to join other Catholics from around the world for the event, whose theme is “Planted and built up in Jesus Christ, firm in the faith (Colossians 2:7).”

Michael Hannon of the Office of Young Adult Outreach in the Archdiocese of New York attended World Youth Day in 2008 in Sydney and will accompany a group of nearly 50 to this year’s event.

“I had a great experience in Sydney — an awesome look at the next generation of the Church,” Hannon said. “I have similar hopes for Madrid, but I...READ MORE

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (EWTN News/CNA) — Pope Benedict used his Aug. 17 general audience to reflect on Mary’s example of prayer and meditation just before he travels to Madrid to celebrate World Youth Day with more than 1 million young people.

“In our time, we are absorbed by many activities and duties, worries, problems,” he said.

“Mary teaches us how necessary it is to find in our days, with all of its activities, moments to gather our thoughts in silence and meditate on what the Lord wants to teach us, on how he is present and acts in the world and in our life.”

At his summer residence in Castel Gandalfo, the Pope reflected on the passage from Luke’s Gospel that says Mary observed...READ MORE

The night of Aug. 16 belonged to both Pope John Paul II, the great friend of the world’s young people and the Catholic faith of Spain.

Cardinal Ruoco also called his fellow citizens of Spain to remember their Catholic roots and to see the week ahead as an opportunity to renew and strengthen their ancient...READ MORE

For Father Bourgeois, Today's the Day (5395)

As last chance to recant from his support for women’s ordination looms, the maverick Maryknoll priest holds on to his views.

COLUMBUS, Ga. — Father Roy Bourgeois sat in his modest apartment on Tuesday, Aug. 16 with only seven hours left to say two words: I recant.

These words would free him of a looming dismissal from the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America (Maryknoll). Father Bourgeois was ordered to recant his open campaign in favor of ordination of women as priests, a position in direct conflict with Church doctrine.

“Wednesday is the day,” Father Bourgeois said in a conversation with the Register on Aug. 16. “I poked the beehive of the patriarchy, and those bees got very upset with me. I am in very serious trouble. Yes, we have to obey our leaders. But above that is loyalty to conscience, and...READ MORE
