St. Teresa of Calcutta

Monday, September 5th, 2016

After a fast-track process Mother Teresa has been declared a saint.  The church throughout the world rejoices.

Her feast day is September 5, the date of her death in 1997.  She was 87 years old.

Yet despite widespread affection and admiration for her in the secular world, there is also a vocal current of opposition and animus in the international left.  An interesting editorial analyzes the causes of this disdain.  It is well worth reading.

Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation: The Joy of Love

Saturday, April 9th, 2016

Pope Francis’ long awaited document on marriage was published yesterday, April 8th.  Amoris Laetitia, “The Joy of Love”, is a beautiful reflection on the nature of marriage between one man and one woman, how to promote it among our youth, and how to heal it when it is wounded.  In the case of “irregular” marriages, the Pope’s effort is to take these unions where the are and strengthen the connection of the couples with the church as far as possible in the effort to help move them forward toward full participation in the church’s understanding of sacramental marriage.

This article summarizes the basic points.  It includes a link to the document itself.
