Although Catholics have become accustomed to the current translation of the Roman missal and some may wonder why a new one is being introduced, Msgr.  Andrew Wadsworth, who is executive director of the International Commission on English in the Liturgy — which prepared the   forthcoming translation that debuts in Catholic churches in the U.S. on the First Sunday of Advent — says it was high time for a revision.

“When our current translation of the Roman Missal — the first English version — was implemented in 1973, it was recognized that it would need revision in time. Many people thought it would be only five years before it was revised,” he said. “That was over 40 years ago, so such a...READ MORE

INDIANAPOLIS (EWTN News) — Indiana’s attorney general has indicated that the state is likely to challenge a federal judge’s injunction that ordered the state to resume funding for Planned Parenthood on June 24.

“The federal government’s position in this case is in tension with its own regulations, which specifically acknowledge state authority over provider qualifications,” Attorney General Greg Zoeller wrote in a June 24 response to the injunction ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Pratt.

Judge Pratt ordered Indiana to restore Planned Parenthood funds, saying the state cannot cut funding for otherwise “competent” Medicaid providers in a way that would limit patients’ health-care...READ MORE

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York’s Catholic bishops have called on the Empire State’s faithful to renew their appreciation for authentic, sacramental marriage in the wake of New York becoming the sixth and largest state in the country to legalize same-sex “marriage.”

“The Church fought this with everything we had,” said Dennis Poust, spokesman for the New York Catholic Conference, the public-policy arm of the state’s Catholic bishops.

On the night of June 24, the New York Senate passed the Marriage Equality Act by a vote of 33-29 following days of closed-door negotiations between the Senate’s Republican leadership and the Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who championed the same-sex “marriage” cause...READ MORE

ROME (CNA) — An expert on Pope Pius XII expressed support for an Israeli ambassador who faces controversy after publicly praising the World War II pontiff for helping save Jews during the Holocaust.

Israeli ambassador to the Vatican Mordechai Lewy said on June 27 that his positive comments about the late Pope were historically “premature,” after he was criticized by Jewish groups.

However, author William Doino commended the ambassador for “opening up healthy and productive discussion” and supports his stance in favor of Pope Pius XII, who is often accused of turning a blind eye to the Holocaust. 

Ambassador Lewy sparked the debate at a ceremony honoring the Italian Pope on June 23, when...READ MORE
