Earlier this month the Archbishop of Cincinnati announced his plan to restructure the archdiocese in light of changing demographics and the declining number of priests. The goal: to reduce the number of parishes by 70% over time. Pause for a moment and reflect on that: a major United States archdiocese plans to shut the doors […]Read More

“From the beginning of creation,” said Jesus, when the Pharisees, seeking trouble, tried to pin Him down on the matter of divorce, “God made them male and female. For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. So they are […]Read More

For years now, ordinary Catholics have been barraged with a number of trendy buzzwords and catchy slogans: “A listening Church,” “accompaniment,” “pastoral,” and more. While these words are not necessarily wrong or inappropriate for ecclesial discourse, they often serve as a Trojan horse through which heterodoxy and heteropraxy emerge. As preparation for the “Synod on […]Read More

“EACH OF US CAN DISCOVER IN JOSEPH – THE MAN WHO GOES UNNOTICED, A DAILY, DISCREET AND HIDDEN PRESENCE – AN INTERCESSOR, A SUPPORT AND A GUIDE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE.” — Pope Francis, Patris Corde
With the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021.
At the conclusion of his Letter, Pope Francis adds another prayer to St Joseph, which he encourages all of us to pray together:
Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil. Amen.
ST. JOSEPH INTERCESSIONS
THE ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK
That, during this Year of St. Joseph, we may care for one another the way Joseph cared for Jesus, the Son of God. We pray:
That all fathers may be inspired during this Year of Saint Joseph to imitate him as loving husbands and parents to their families. We pray:
That all refugees may be consoled during this Year of Saint Joseph by the saint who cared for his family when fleeing danger. We pray:
For all who labor to earn their daily bread; may they be strengthened during this Year of Saint Joseph, and may they receive a just wage. We pray:
For all those who quietly minister in the Lord’s vineyard. May they be inspired by Joseph, the silent saint, to work humbly for God. We pray:
For all families, that during this Year of Saint Joseph they may grow together in joy and love, as did Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We pray:
For unborn children and their parents;
For the elderly and the seriously ill;
For those on death row and all victims of violence; may all life be protected through the intercession of Saint Joseph. We pray:

A Christian slave of Rome, Callistus was ordained deacon by Pope St. Zephyrinus, whom he succeeded as pope in the year 217. As deacon he was guardian of the Christian cemetery on the Appian Way which is still known by his name. While he vigorously opposed heresy, his charitable attitude toward repentant sinners incurred the wrath of contemporary rigorists. St. Callistus I is honored today in both the current and former (1962) liturgical calendars.Read More

According to the previous liturgical calendar (1962), today is the feast of St. Edward (1003-1066), called the Confessor, was the grandson of St. Edward, king and martyr, and became king of England at the age of forty-seven. As king he was noted for his gentleness, humility, detachment and angelic purity. He preserved perfect chastity in his wedded life. So little was his heart set on riches that he freely dispensed his goods at the palace gate to the sick and poor. His reign was one of almost continuous peace. The people were prosperous and ruined churches were rebuilt. All spoke affectionately of the wise measures of the "good King Edward."Read More

Bl. Carlo Acutis, a Catholic Italian teenager who died in 2006, was beatified on October 10, 2021, in Assisi. Acutis, a gamer and computer programmer who loved soccer and the Eucharist, has been the subject of interest around the world. Pope Francis referred to Carlo as a model of holiness in a digital age. Carlo's life should teach today's young people how to properly use and enjoy technology, including the internet and social media. His motto was "To always be close to Jesus, that's my life plan"Read More
