Franciscans mark jubilees

In Aston, Pa., 300 sisters gathered in Our Lady of Angels Chapel to begin a year honoring 28 jubilarians celebrating 75, 70, 50, and 25 years as Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia—1605 collective years of service. The jubilarians processed around the outside of the motherhouse, their voices singing Rufino Zaragoza’s “Praise and Glory.”

God's plan for human love a path to joy

ST. BENEDICT — Growing up, we have so many questions. Young children often need their parents to explain to them how, who, what, when, or why. Sometimes when our children ask questions, even the simple ones, it’s hard to explain in a way that they can understand or to guide them in their own discovery of the answer.

Archbishop Sample's Column
A Catechesis on Marriage
As I stated at the end of my last column on the Extraordinary Synod on Marriage, I believe we are currently reaping the fruit of 50 to 60 years of inadequate and failed efforts to form and catechize ourselves as to the true nature, purpose and meaning of marriage. I intend with this column to begin a formal teaching on this matter. This seems like a good time as we prepare for next year’s Ordinary Synod on Marriage and as we prepare for the World Meeting of Families to take place in Philadelphia next year.

A tale of two synods

At our recent meeting of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in Baltimore, Md., the bishops from the United States who participated in the recent Extraordinary Synod on the pastoral challenges of the family reported on their experiences. One of them, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York, spoke of a “tale of two synods.” By this he meant that the synod as reported and covered by much of the media did not match his own experience at the synod. He jokingly stated that he must have been at the wrong synod!

Am I my brother's keeper?
When God confronted Cain after callously killing his own brother, Abel, Cain responds to God with the now famous question, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” (Genesis 4:9)  This phrase from the Sacred Scripture has been used throughout the ages to help ponder our responsibility toward one another in the community of the human family.
Forgiveness is ours

Second Sunday of Advent
Every catechist knows that no matter how fine a teacher he or she might be, a child’s appreciation of the sacraments is largely learned in the home. This seems to be particularly true of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. If children have seen unconditional forgiveness in their homes, it is easy for them to believe that there is a God whose love is so generous that forgiveness is ours for the asking. If forgiveness is withheld or grudgingly given, the child expects similar treatment from God. Unfortunately, not all those who hear the words of today’s Gospel have lived in a forgiving environment. Not all those who hear these words are able so easily to forgive others or even themselves.

Revisiting the argument from desire
CHICAGO — One of the classical demonstrations of God’s existence is the so-called argument from desire. It can be stated in a very succinct manner as follows: Every innate or natural desire corresponds to some objective state of affairs that fulfills it.
