Saints Joachim and Anne, Parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary, July 26 Rome, July 25, 2014 ( Fr. Jason Mitchell LC Sirach 44:1,10-15 Psalm 132:11,13-14,17-18 Matthew 13:16-17 Today we celebrate the memorial of Saints Joachim and Anne, the parents of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

July 25, 2014 breaking Comments Off on 2 Christian Brothers Face Jihadist Threat in Iraq: Will They Stay or Flee?

Rome, July 27, 2014 ( By Oliver Maksan There is no doubt in the mind of 23-year-old Haram. With his second child on the way, he is prepared to rush his family out of town at a moment’s notice: “My tank is always full,” he says. “If the situation escalates I’ll grab my wife and child and flee,” he adds with determination. Haram’s older brother has also made his choice—to stay, no matter what. Mohand’s certainty reflects an even bigger decision he made many years ago: to become a Chaldean Catholic priest.

July 24, 2014 breaking Comments Off on Bishops: Obama’s Executive Order on Discrimination ‘Implements Discrimination’

Washington, D.C., July 23, 2014 ( The bishop-Chairmen of two USCCB Committees responded with concern to President Obama’s July 21 executive order to prohibit federal government contractors from what the Administration deems “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” discrimination and to forbid “gender identity” discrimination in the employment of federal employees. The problems the bishops identify in the order relate both to the flaws in its core prohibitions, and to its lack of religious freedom protection. Two USCCB Chairmen – Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore, Chairman of the Ad Hoc Committee for Religious Liberty and Bishop Richard J. Malone of Buffalo, Chairman of the Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth – together issued the following statement on Monday.…Continue Reading
