Chicago's archbishop encourages Catholics to pray on behalf of those, like him, who may be too weak to pray well. He also previews a new pastoral letter, which asks the faithful to return to the Rosary and other discarded Catholic customs.
Revelation presents the Church’s own story of its pilgrimage through history, a narrative once ingrained in Western culture, from the arts and literature to social tradition and medical ethics. But as many drift away from the stories of Abraham and Sarah, of the Incarnation and Lazarus, a revisionist narrative has been imposed, generating a false tale of the Church’s history in the world and tainting the faithful’s own view of Catholic tradition and doctrine.
