NEW YORK — A new series of discussions taking place on the streets of New York City is shining a light on authentic love and relationships — and cultivating a following that is spreading to other parts of the country.

Love & Responsibility NYC is a 13-week discussion series that was launched last summer on a street in SoHo by Patrick Langrell, director of young-adult outreach for the Archdiocese of New York.  It is run by a group of young adults who moderate small-group discussions based on the book Men, Women and the Mystery of Love by Edward Sri, which provides practical insights from John Paul II’s Love and Responsibility.

Langrell, 23, read Sri’s book early last summer and was...READ MORE

Bishops Mourn Those Lost on 9/11 and Comfort America on 10th Anniversary (2182)

Archbishop Dolan: 'Let us pray that the lasting legacy of 9/11 is not fear, but rather hope for a world renewed.'

NEW YORK — On the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, leading American Catholic bishops mourned the dead, commemorated their sacrifices and looked for signs of renewal and resurrection.

Their Sunday homilies noted the consoling power of God, the struggle between good and evil, and the need for fellowship, peace and reconciliation.

In New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Archbishop Timothy Dolan told how the city’s firemen regularly inspect the cathedral’s wooden ceiling. They have a custom of etching their names in the high, grime-encrusted windows.

“On there are four names of firefighters who were here just days before 9/11 and who lost their lives trying to rescue others on that...READ MORE

Bishops Speak Out About Alabama Immigration Bill (2407)

They say law would threaten the Catholic Church’s ministry.

09/13/2011 Comments (18)

WASHINGTON (CNA) — The U.S. bishops have backed efforts in Alabama to turn back a state law they say would threaten the Catholic Church’s ministry to undocumented immigrants.

Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, chair of the migration committee of the U.S. bishops’ conference, offered his “solidarity and support” to Archbishop Thomas Rodi of Mobile, Ala., Bishop Robert Baker of Birmingham, Ala., and other religious leaders in the state who are trying to reverse the law.

Archbishop Rodi and several Protestant denominations are seeking relief from a law they say criminalizes parts of the Church’s mission and interferes with the free exercise of religion.

“The Catholic Church provides...READ MORE

How Live Action Influenced Illinois Law (23054)

A teen’s dream has led to exposés and pro-life legislation.

Live Action

Lila Rose

– Live Action

A sting operation in New Jersey undertaken by pro-life activists has had a ripple effect across the country, leading to new laws protecting the unborn.

A man and woman entered a Perth Amboy, N.J., Planned Parenthood clinic in January seeking help for their sex ring of 14- and 15-year-old girls. The girls needed STD testing, they told manager Amy Woodruff, as well as birth control and abortions.

Woodruff was accommodating and offered no objection to children being used as prostitutes. In fact, she offered helpful tips, such as telling them to indicate they are students so they can get the best prices on birth control: “Just kinda play along that they’re students. We wanna make it look as...READ MORE

The Daughter of a Saint Speaks of Her Mother's Holiness (6669)

Gianna Emanuela Molla, the daughter of St. Gianna, recalls a life of sanctity.

St. Gianna Beretta Molla (Oct. 4, 1922-April 28, 1962), an Italian pediatrician, is one of the Church’s lay saints. When suffering from a life-threatening disease while pregnant, she rejected the possibility of having an abortion to save her own life and gave her own to save that of her fourth child, Gianna Emanuela.

Her heroic example, both in life and death, led her to become a patron saint of the unborn, and she now has a growing devoted following worldwide — reports of miracles and graces granted through her intercession continue to this day. Molla was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 2004.

Many American Catholics met Dr. Gianna Emanuela Molla when she visited the United States over...READ MORE
