James Bartel lights a candle before a prayer service for the dead at Gethsemani Cemetery in Portland. The Archdiocese of Portland offers policies to help Catholics plan funerals.

To help pastors and individuals, the Archdiocese of Portland for some years has had a set of funeral policies, culled from canon law, general instructions and local custom. Here are some questions the policies address.

Liturgy's beauty reveals Christ

More than 90 people last month came from around the Northwest to a Portland conference on sacred liturgy. The dozen lectures explored the beauty and treasures of the liturgy as gift and revelation from God.

Archbishop Sample's Column
What the Synod was . . . and was not
I have followed with no little concern the coverage of the recent Synod on marriage and the family in the media, especially in the secular media. If one did not know better, we might have thought that we were in the middle of an ecumenical council of the Church, a sort of Vatican III. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Integrity of faith
The Archdiocese of Portland recently celebrated the ordination of three permanent deacons and two transitional deacons. (Transitional deacons are men who, God willing, will also be ordained priests.) There is a moment in the ceremony of ordination that struck me particularly strong on these two occasions. It is when the Book of the Gospels is solemnly handed over to the newly ordained deacons.

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!

Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe
Christ introduces us to a form of kingship that is alien to our world. In this Gospel, he tells us about his kingship. He is the one whose crown is made of thorns and whose throne is a cross.

Look to Mary, she knows our lives
OREGON CITY — We often do not think about it, but Mary was only around 13 years old we she said yes to God. That is really young to be the mother of God.

Sacraments linked to seasons
Ever since I moved out of my crib, I have been surrounded by the rituals of farm life and have learned the routine of each season. Over these years of growing in faith, I have found that the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church have a peculiar way of connecting to the seasons of the year.
