Hace poco visité una familia devastada por la pérdida de su hijo recién nacido. Al entrar al cuarto de hospital encontré a la madre en cama con el pequeño niño envuelto en una cobija blanca hecha en casa. Lo miraba con una ternura de madre mientras acomodaba sus bracitos colorados. El bebe tenía un sombrerito triangular blanco que cubría su cabeza y sus ojos estaban cerrados. Ninguna palabra podía consolar plenamente ni cualquier expresión podía sanar plenamente tal pérdida significativa para la pareja joven.

NEW ORLEANS (CNS)--While the ministry of the deacon has changed in the Catholic Church’s history, Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin of Newark, New Jersey, said deacons today are a sign of what Christians are called to be in their service of God and neighbor.


Speaking at the 2018 National Diaconate Congress in New Orleans July 22-26, Cardinal Tobin said the diaconate is absolutely crucial to the Church’s life. Deacons have a threefold ministry of “word, sacrament and charity ... permeated by a commitment to charity and justice.”

Fifty years ago in issuing his encyclical “Humanae Vitae,” Blessed Paul VI “reaffirmed the beautiful truth that a husband and wife are called to give themselves completely to each other,” said the president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.


“Marriage reflects the love of God, which is faithful, generous and life-giving. Through their vocation, spouses cooperate with God by being open to new human life,” Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston said in a July 25 statement marking the 50th anniversary of the document.

Any parent who ever grappled with the “new” math knows that education often falls victim to the latest trend.


But one growing trend in Catholic education is actually taking students back to what’s enduring and unchanging, according to Catherine Neumayr, who just completed seven years as principal of Holy Rosary Academy, an independent Catholic classical school in Anchorage, Alaska.

God was upset about the evil ways of King Ahab of Israel. Ahab had married the Sidonian princess Jezebel and began to worship her false god, Baal.


One day, God called on his prophet, Elijah, to tell Ahab that there would be no dew or rain in the land except at Elijah’s word.


Drought and famine spread through the land for three years. During this time, Elijah was in hiding and Jezebel put the other prophets of God to death.


In the third year, God told Elijah to return to Ahab and end the drought.

On July 25, 1968 – in the midst of the “sexual revolution” which aggressively promoted premarital sex, pornography, homosexual activity and artificial contraception – Pope Paul VI, with the courage of a prophet, gave the Catholic Church and world an entirely different message.


In his encyclical letter "Humanae Vitae" (“Of Human Life”), soon to be canonized Pope Paul VI prophetically predicted that contraception would “open wide the way for marital infidelity and a general lowering of moral standards.”
