Al llegar nuevamente el mes de la herencia hispana, los escritos del fallecido novelista mexicano Carlos Fuentes tienen relevancia especial.


En un bello libro titulado “El Espejo Enterrado,” publicado en 1992 para el quinto centenario, Fuentes advirtió: “Debemos recordar que la humanidad en un entonces no existía en nuestro continente. Todos nosotros venimos de otros lugares, empezando con las tribus nomaditas de Asia que fueron los primeros norteamericanos”.

WASHINGTON (CNS) -- Pledging to "heal and protect with every bit of the strength God provides us," the U.S. bishops' Administrative Committee Sept. 19 outlined actions to address the abuse crisis, including approving the establishment of a third-party confidential reporting system for claims of any abuse by bishops.


It also instructed the U.S. bishops' canonical affairs committee to develop proposals for policies addressing restrictions on bishops who were removed or resigned because of allegations of abuse of minors or adults.

Jesus was traveling around Galilee with his apostles. At one point, he asked Peter, James and John to come with him up a high mountain. 


Once they were on the mountain, Jesus was suddenly changed. His clothes became a dazzling white, and Elijah and Moses appeared to speak with him. A cloud came and cast a shadow over everyone, and a voice could be heard saying, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” 


Just as suddenly, the cloud, Elijah and Moses were gone. Jesus told them to say nothing of what they saw until the Son of Man rose from the dead.

The concept of “synodality,” originally applied to bishops meeting together to discuss church teaching, has become increasingly important and extended since the Second Vatican Council.


St. John Paul II emphasized that “a synodal assembly cannot be reduced to a consultation on practical matters. Its true raison d’etre is the fact that the church can move forward only by strengthening communion among her members, beginning with her pastors.”

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Without respectfully collaborating with teachers and schools, parents will risk being on their own when it comes to educating their children and be at a greater disadvantage for facing the challenges emerging from today's culture, mass media and technology, Pope Francis said.


Speaking to hundreds of parents, the pope told them that "teachers are like you -- dedicated each day in the educational service of your children."

DUBLIN (CNS)--In a stadium of Catholic families from around the world, Pope Francis told the laypeople they are the vast majority of church members and that, without them, the church would be cold, a collection of statues.

One day, Jesus told the apostles a parable to show the importance of watching for the coming of the Son of Man.


He told the story of a man who was going on a journey. Before he left, he put his three servants in charge of his possessions.


The man gave each servant money according to his ability. The first received five talents, the second received two talents and the third received one talent.
After the man left, the first servant immediately traded his talents and made five more.
