Lent: Share Christ's love

Pair gives sign of peace at outdoor Ash Wednesday Mass in Tennessee meant to draw attention to plight of people who are homeless.
The season of Lent is upon us. It’s a time, Pope Francis reminds us, of renewal for the Church and among the faithful. And the path to renewal is through love — love of Christ, our brothers and sisters and our selves.

Families, we want to help
Here is our message to families of western Oregon: We want you to thrive. We want joy for you. We want to help you in your struggles.

In Glock we trust? The question of guns and God
It's Sunday. Time for church. Do I pack a prayer book or a pistol?
Monday, February 16, 2015
Protecting the innocents while respecting freedom
The constantly quoted "guns don't kill people, people kill people" is being shouted across the United States in one way or another. People line up on both sides of gun issues, some packing firepower and marching to state capitols to voice their opinions about their Second Amendment rights.

Wealth gap obscene
Despite the economic downturn of recent years, bank accounts of the world's billionaires have grown deliberately fatter as the financial canyon between rich and poor has widened. It has reached a point that by 2016 the world's richest one percent could own more than half the planet's wealth.

On freedom of speech, its limits and its obligations
Pope Francis once encouraged young people at World Youth Day to go out and make a holy mess, and one gets the clear impression he likes to do this himself, too -- especially when he gets onto an airplane with journalists.

Keep your faith on fire
Pope Francis last week, while preaching in the chapel of Domus Sanctae Marthae in Vatican City, reminded us that our excitement for loving Christ must continue to be rekindled and kept on fire.

Speak less, do more
Among the things Pope Francis has taught us is that it’s good for Christians to talk less and act more.

Being an informed voter harder than it used to be
If, as the saying says, "All politics is local," then why are we bombarded by advertisements paid for by public action committees that are anything but local? We hear sound bites by the dozen about one candidate running for public office and then another. Often, the impression those sound bites give are anything but accurate.

Civility, not confrontation, shows the face of God
Successfully proclaiming the Gospel requires changing hearts and minds. Incivility hardens hearts and closes minds.

True satire defends what is sacred, instead of belittling it
The Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, in contrast, strike against the core of human dignity, the sacred center of the human person which yearns for union with God. That sacred center typically expresses itself through fidelity to one of the great religions.

'500 ... and counting'
We must continue to pray each day for all unborn children and for their mothers and fathers to choose life. May the number of these ultrasound machines continue to grow, and be among the tools that open the hearts and minds of all expectant parents to see what a wonderful gift their child in the womb is.

Standing up for dignity of life
Much like the hundreds of thousands of pro-life marchers who descend upon Washington each year to rally against abortion, it will take the grass-roots efforts of families with Down syndrome children to convince couples who have received a positive prenatal diagnosis for Down syndrome not to end their baby's life.

Couples: Share a simple life of prayer
Prayer is both the gift of grace and a response to God’s invitation to covenant relationship as a married couple. Prayer allows husbands and wives to walk humbly before God in the obedience of faith — it is listening to the voice of God and allowing that voice to change their lives and shape their marriages. Prayer draws them deeply into God’s heart so that every day they recommit themselves to a personal relationship of love and intimacy with Him.

Logical name?
Let’s vote on the proper and logical name, “Christmas” tree.

Cartoon regarding Charlie Hebdo attack
Here is a cartoon from Catholic News Service regarding the attack on French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.

Support King legacy
This year, half a century has passed since people of faith, both black and white, stood side by side in Selma, Ala., to demonstrate for the Voting Rights Act.

God at work in schools
National Catholic Schools Week is being celebrated Jan. 25-31. When it comes to seeing how the Holy Spirit continues to act in the world, Catholic Schools are a good bet.

Pope puts church's weight behind effort to rid world of nuclear weapons
Pope Francis, who has already broken new ground in his outreach to a suffering humanity, has put the weight of the Catholic Church behind a new humanitarian movement to rid the world of nuclear weapons.

Attack on Anchorage cathedral poses age-old challenge
It gives one pause that vandals would attempt to burn down an outdoor shrine to the Blessed Virgin, smash the windows of the Dominican priests' vehicle, barge into the sanctuary and throw down statues of Mary, Joseph and Jesus, while stripping the holy altar and overturning the archbishop's chair and other furnishings. Add to this that at least one Dominican friar has also been punched in the face and attempts have been made to break into the priests' residence.

Move forward in Cuba
Following half a century of hostility, and guided by the intervention of Pope Francis, the United States and Cuba have agreed to try to become good neighbors. The detente announced between the two nations on Dec. 17 is welcomed news to end a year that witnessed too much hatred.
