From Planned Parenthood to Pro-Life (5543)

Linda Couri brings firsthand knowledge of the tragedy of abortion to her work for the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Linda Couri

Linda Couri of Libertyville, Ill., 42, is a Catholic wife and mother who works hard to maintain a deep prayer life, and strongly supports the Church’s teachings on the gospel of life. She serves as the director of lay ministry for the Archdiocese of Chicago.

It’s hard to believe that, just a decade ago, Couri was agnostic and contemptuous of Catholicism — and was a staunch advocate of legalized abortion who worked as a volunteer and employee for Planned Parenthood. In fact, she herself once had an abortion.

“I’ve come a long way,” Couri acknowledged. “And God has supported me through this process.”

Couri was born in Chicago and attended Catholic schools. She stopped going to Mass when...READ MORE

Rep. Smith: V.P. Biden's Remarks on China's One-Child Policy 'Unconscionable' (4211)

House Speaker John Boehner also said he was 'deeply troubled by the comments ... regarding China’s reprehensible one-child policy, which has resulted in forced sterilizations and coerced abortions and should not be condoned by any American official.'

– Wikipedia

WASHINGTON (CNA) — A leading human-rights advocate in the U.S. House of Representatives says Vice President Joe Biden betrayed Chinese women and children by saying he “fully understood” the country’s one-child policy and was not “second guessing” it.

“The one child-per-couple policy is cruel, inhumane and the most egregious systematic attack on women ever,” said Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., on Aug. 23. “For the vice president to publicly state that he fully understands the one-child policy is unconscionable.”

“He and all of us should be defending the women of China from this state-sponsored cruelty of forced abortion and forced sterilization, not supporting and enabling it.”

Biden made the...READ MORE

World Youth Day Pilgrimage Ends With a Visit to Avila: Praying Where St. Teresa Prayed (2208)

Our Register staffer's WYD adventures come to a blessed conclusion.

For the last day of our World Youth Day pilgrimage, we headed to Avila.

This beautiful town is located an hour and a half from Madrid, out in the rolling countryside of Spain. For all the Carmelite fans and religious out there, it is an essential stop when visiting Spain.

We headed out around 10 this morning, only to have a slight mix-up on the Metro. If we were going to get lost, today was the day to do it — rather than when everything was pure chaos due to WYD!

I fell in love with the little town of Avila. It is so quaint, with gorgeous views and ancient churches. It is also the hometown of St. Teresa, Avila’s famous Carmelite nun. She lived here from 1515 to 1582. She had frequent...READ MORE

Mass Changes Us (3442)

Aug. 28 issue feature: Cardinal Donald Wuerl offers an introduction to the Register's series on the new translation of the Roman Missal.

– Archdiocese of Washington Facebook

The implementation of the new English translation of the Roman Missal provides an occasion for all of us to reflect once again on the meaning and central significance of the Mass. As we prepare to welcome the changes that will go into effect on the First Sunday of Advent, it is a time to renew our own understanding and appreciation of the Eucharistic Liturgy.

In his call for a New Evangelization, our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, pointed out that such an effort entails two aspects: a deepening of our own faith and a commitment to share it. What better way to prepare for the new English translation and, at the same time, participate in the New Evangelization, than refreshing...READ MORE

Does the Lone Star Governor Have a Prayer or a Major Catholic Problem? (10959)

Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. Rick Perry speaks to workers Aug. 18 at Epoch Homes in Pembroke, N.H.

The morning before the Iowa Straw Poll — essentially a fundraiser for the Republican Party in the Hawkeye State — Rick Perry, the sitting governor of Texas, announced his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination, a race that is still in its relatively early stages.

Perry brings with him executive experience and Lone Star electoral-vote magic. With that experience, of course, comes a record, with the baggage that can bring with it.

Different issues will set off different alarm bells. An early one has been the governor’s decision to issue an executive order to mandate that girls as young as 11 be vaccinated for the human papillomavirus, a sexually transmitted disease. In a good...READ MORE
