09/08/2011 Comment

CASTEL GANDOLFO, Italy (EWTN News/CNA)— Pope Benedict XVI told a group of Indian bishops visiting his summer residence on Sept. 8 that they should take special care to ensure that Church institutions convey the message of the Gospel.

“As you know, all of the Church’s activities are meant to glorify God and fill his people with the truth that sets us free,” Pope Benedict told a group of Indian bishops at Castel Gandolfo.

“This saving truth, at the heart of the deposit of faith, must remain the foundation of all the Church’s endeavors, proposed to others always with respect, but also without compromise.”

The audience was the Pope’s second meeting with the Indian bishops, the last of four...READ MORE

Helen Hull Hitchcock is co-founder of Adoremus.

O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
— Psalm 95:1-2

The opening words of this Psalm, with which Catholics have begun Morning Prayer for centuries, take on renewed meaning as the English-speaking world soon begins to sing the words of the new translation of the Roman Missal.

This long-anticipated translation of the Mass will replace the one that we have been using for nearly 40 years. It is the fruit of the intense labor of hundreds of bishops, scholars, translators and two popes — within a sometimes tangled and confusing vineyard....READ MORE

Imagine yourself, a senior in college, sitting in the middle of your dream medical-school interview. Because you have done your homework, the interview is going exceedingly well. You seem to have established a rapport with the interviewer, and your answers are crisp, clear and intelligent. It’s going so well that you are starting to feel confident regarding your chances of gaining admission.

That is, until the interviewer hits you with this question: “Suppose a young pregnant woman and her boyfriend come to you seeking an abortion. What would you do?”

What would you do? How would you answer? For pro-life medical-school candidates, there is only one answer: You counsel the couple not to...READ MORE
