Jun. 23 Saturday of the Eleventh Week of Ordinary Time, Weekday

According to the 1962 Missal of St. John XXIII the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, today is the Vigil of St. John the Baptist. The Birth of St. John the Baptist is a solemnity, and so observance still begins with Evening Prayer I in the Liturgy of the Hours of the preceding day. The liturgical day is from midnight to midnight in the Church's observance, except for Sunday and solemnities which begin with the evening of the preceding day.

Jun. 21 Memorial of St. Aloysius Gonzaga, confessor, Memorial

St. Aloysius Gonzaga's outstanding quality was his radiant purity and the Church praises this perfect innocence with the words, "Thou has made him little less than the angels." He was baptized in the womb, because his life was in danger, and he made a vow of chastity at the age of nine. When he was sixteen he joined the Society of Jesus and died at the age of twenty-three in 1591 as a result of his devoted nursing of the plague-stricken.

Bishop Barron on Pope Francis and Virtue Ethics

I recently finished a paper on chapters 7, 8, and 9 of Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which I was asked to talk about at the World Meeting of Families in Dublin. While many have focused on chapter 8 of this exhortation, I was really struck by the Pope's comments on moral formation, communication technology, and sex education in the previous chapter.

Bishop Barron on Priestly Celibacy

Everything in this world—including sex, family, and worldly relationships—is good, but not ultimate. This is why, the Church is convinced, God chooses certain people to be celibate: in order to witness to a transcendent form of love.

Bishop Barron on Confirmation Names

One of the marks of the sacrament of Confirmation is that someone takes a new name. It’s true—and weird—that while an individual chooses the name of a saint, in a much more significant way the saint chooses that individual, drawing them into the power of his or her life and witness. But two of the most popular names for young men and women in my three years of presiding at Confirmation—Sebastian and Teresa—reflect in a more universal way what it means to take this sacramentum, or sacred oath, and become a confirmed member of Christ's mystical body.

BISHOP BARRON'S ARTICLES

The Question Behind the Question

On the afternoon of June 14, a rather spirited, fascinating, and unexpected debate broke out on the floor of the USCCB spring meeting about the use of videos rather than texts. I will confess that as this lively discussion unfolded, a smile spread across my face, for I have believed for some time that the issue of how we communicate is perhaps as important as what we communicate—that is, if we are interested in moving the conversation beyond a very narrow circle.

Sowing the Wind and Reaping the Whirlwind: A Reflection on the Irish Referendum

I will confess that as a person of Irish heritage on both sides of my family, I found the events in Ireland last week particularly dispiriting. Not only did the nation vote, by a two-to-one margin, for the legal prerogative to kill their children in the womb, but they also welcomed and celebrated the vote with a frankly sickening note of gleeful triumph. Accompanying the entire process, of course, was the subtext of the Catholic Church’s cultural impotence, even irrelevance, in the wake of the great crimes of the last several decades. Is there a way forward for Ireland?

Michelle Wolf and the Throwaway Culture

At this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner, the comedian Michelle Wolf joked about "knocking around" unborn children, in order to abort them. Her shameless endorsement of abortion places her in line with Friedrich Nietzsche, who had a special contempt for the Christian values of sympathy and compassion for the vulnerable and believed all morality was relative. But if Wolf and Nietzsche are right—if good and evil are merely relative states of affairs—then there is nothing to hem in and control the tendency of cultural elites to dominate others. When objective moral values evanesce, armies of the expendable emerge.

Pope Francis tells journalists he authorized CDF prefect's letter on intercommunion (Vatican Press Office)

During a press conference on his return flight from Switzerland, Pope Francis weighed in on ecumenism, migrants and refugees, and peace. He also said that he authorized Cardinal-designate Luis Ladaria Ferrer’s recent letter blocking a proposal by the German bishops’ conference that would have allowed Protestant spouses of Catholics to receive Communion on a regular basis. The crux of the issue, said the Pope, is that canon law permits a diocesan bishop, not a bishops’ conference, to permit non-Catholic Christians to receive Holy Communion in limited circumstances. The Vatican, the Pope added, is preparing a “a guiding document, so that each of the diocesan bishops can manage what canon law already permits.”

Pope Francis and Swiss President Alain Berset “underlined the need for a pan-European refugee policy based on solidarity” during their June 21 meeting in Geneva, according to a statement from the Swiss government. “An important topic of the bilateral talks was the search for solutions for peace in conflict areas in the Middle East and the situation of certain religious minorities, including in Myanmar.”

Harrisburg, Pa., Jun 22, 2018 / 05:02 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The release of a Grand Jury report detailing cases of clerical sex abuse in six of the eight Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania has been blocked by the state’s Supreme Court for unspecified reasons.

During trial, former Vatican diplomat admits viewing child pornography

Vatican City, Jun 22, 2018 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- At the start of his Vatican City trial Friday, Msgr. Carlo Alberto Capella, a former diplomat for the Holy See, admitted to charges of the possession and distribution of child pornography while working in the U.S.

Capella, 51, a former Vatican diplomat, was recalled from the U.S. nunciature in Washington, D.C. last September after the U.S. State Department notified the Vatican of a “possible violation of laws relating to child pornography images” by a diplomat.

‘Not one more death’ – Nicaraguan bishops appeal for peace

Masaya, Nicaragua, Jun 22, 2018 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- Amid continued unrest in Nicaragua, Church leaders traveled to the city of Masaya Thursday to pray and appeal for peace.

Protests began April 18 after Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega announced social security and pension reforms. The changes were soon abandoned in the face of widespread, vocal opposition, but protests only intensified after more than 40 protestors were killed by security forces initially.

Commentary on the Culture

Redemption and Salvation in the Psalms

If so many different kinds of suffering are the subject of prayer in the Psalms*, it is impossible not to wonder how salvation is perceived by their authors. Is the saving power of the LORD invoked for personal health and prosperity in this life, for the ultimate freedom and peace of the Jewish people through an historical triumph, or for holiness followed by life with God beyond the grave?

Will Pope Francis now discourage &ldquo;discerning away&rdquo; impediments to Communion?

The latest letter from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to the German bishops may mark an important shift in the way Pope Francis is handling impediments to the reception of Holy Communion. In broad terms, the same fundamental issue lies at the heart of both the widespread desire to admit Catholics in invalid marriages and the German bishops’ desire to admit Protestants with Catholic spouses. In both cases, however, the traditional conditions for reception of Communion are typically unfulfilled.

Suffering in the Psalms

In the previous installment I stressed that the Psalms are first and foremost a collection of prayers.* As such they inescapably reveal the general themes which are uppermost in the minds and hearts of those who pray: Concern about present suffering and a better future, the thirst for God and the desire to understand His will, and our own ultimate end. Since the Psalms are part of Divine Revelation, we should not be surprised that they incorporate messages of Divine love and Divine justice, hints of God’s plan of redemption, and even some fairly specific references to Christ, which we can understand fully only since His coming.
