Tips for family prayer

Holy Cross Father Patrick Peyton, with a thick brogue, once said, “The family that prays together stays together.” Now designated a Servant of God, the advocate of the family rosary is now on the path to sainthood.

Sister of Charity celebrates jubilee
Sister of Charity Dolores O’Dwyer (BVM) celebrated her diamond jubilee last month along with 26 other BVM sisters. The group included sisters celebrating 74, 73 and 70 years as BVM sisters. The group gathered at the Mount Carmel Motherhouse Chapel in Dubuque, Iowa, for a liturgy of thanksgiving.
Sister O’Dwyer entered the BVM congregation in 1941 and taught at St. Clare School, Portland.

Archbishop Sample's Column
A need for a deep breath . . .
The other day I came into my office at the Pastoral Center and announced, “Stop the merry go round, I want to get off for a while!”  This statement, meant very much as a lighthearted comment, was prompted by the latest “surprise” news from our beloved Holy Father, Pope Francis, concerning changes being made in the process for seeking a declaration of nullity for marriage in the Church. The last year or so has been quite a ride for the Church, both locally and on the international level. There is a lot going on!

A final word (for now) on marriage

With this column I bring to a conclusion a lengthy catechesis on the subject of marriage and family life. I wish to briefly recall that the reason for this extended teaching has been the attention being given these days throughout the universal Church to this important topic. We are between two synods of the world’s bishops on the subject of the pastoral care of the family. Also we are preparing for a World Meeting of Families to be held this fall in Philadelphia with our Holy Father.

The dignity of homosexual persons and marriage
“Who am I to judge?”  These may well be the most often quoted words of our Holy Father, Pope Francis.  They were delivered during an informal interview given by the Pope.  These words have very often been taken out of context and used to imply the Holy Father’s support for all sorts of things, most notably the gay lifestyle and even same-sex “marriage.”
When we live out our faith, unknown love becomes known
At the end of July my grandpa turned 90. He is the full time care-giver of my 85-year old Grandma who has Alzheimer’s disease. She does not remember me anymore. Over the last couple of years she has forgotten who her children are, and for a while now she has not recognized Grandpa and has been unable to speak in sentences. When I would go visit, Grandpa would explain to me how Grandma was doing. When I would ask him about how he was doing he would just smile and then pay attention to what Grandma was trying to say as she noticed something out the window.

Twenty-Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
The Synod on the Family begins its second session in Rome today. The Oct. 4-25 synod will have the theme: “The vocation and mission of the family in the church and the modern world.” Today’s Gospel offers a powerful reminder of one of the most difficult issues facing today’s families and, consequently, the Synod.
