Two mothers from the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis want to make sure that young people know what real love is. That set them on a course four years ago to develop a Catholic school program.

Purely You is designed for children in their pre-adolescent and adolescent years (as early as fourth grade) to understand who they are, what it means to be made in God’s image, and how their bodies and relationships are made for chaste love, modeled after God’s free, total, faithful and life-giving love for us. The material, based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, The Truth and Meaning of Human Sexuality and other Church sources, includes six lessons on physical, emotional, moral and...READ MORE

Silence and Word: Path of Evangelization (2514)

Message of His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI for the 46th World Communications Day

02/29/2012 Comments (1)

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As we draw near to World Communications Day 2012, I would like to share with you some reflections concerning an aspect of the human process of communication which, despite its importance, is often overlooked and which, at the present time, it would seem especially necessary to recall. It concerns the relationship between silence and word: two aspects of communication which need to be kept in balance, to alternate and to be integrated with one another if authentic dialogue and deep closeness between people are to be achieved. When word and silence become mutually exclusive, communication breaks down, either because it gives rise to confusion or because, on the...READ MORE

'We Are Crossing the Rubicon': House Tackles HHS Mandate Threat (7356)

Bishop Lori, legal and policy experts raise concerns; a representative of the Institute of Medicine defends the federal rule.

Bishop William Lori

WASHINGTON — Yesterday a full House Judiciary Committee hearing provided opponents of the HHS contraception mandate with a forum to explain why President Obama’s “accommodation” failed to address their concerns.

“This ‘accommodation’ would not change the scope of the mandate and its exemption,” stated Bishop William Lori of Bridgeport, Conn., in his Feb. 28 testimony during the House Judicial Committee hearing, “Executive Overreach: The HHS Mandate Versus Religious Liberty.”

“Instead, it would take the form of additional regulations whose precise contours are yet unknown and that may not issue until August 2013,” noted Bishop Lori, the chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee for Religious...READ MORE

St. Oswald of Worcester: A 'Leapling' Saint for Lent (14190)

02/29/2012 Comment

Catholics can celebrate “leap day” as a uniquely Catholic holiday because of a saint — Oswald — and the fact that the idea of a leap year is a Catholic one.

The pagan Julian calendar, named after Julius Caesar, began in 45 B.C., and from its start, it was out of sync with the progression of the stars and seasons. So a new calendar with a leap day was proposed.

In 1582, Pope Gregory XIII mandated a reform to the calendar — after the Church’s astronomers determined that one year was actually 365.2425 days. He also amended the rule for determining a leap year by defining it as a year that was divisible by 100 as long as it was also divisible by 400. Thus, 2012 is a leap year, as was 2000,...READ MORE
