Pope Francis: ‘Be heralds and witnesses of God’s love’


Vatican News, January 26, 2020
By Linda Bordoni

Pope Francis addressed the pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square for the Sunday Angelus encouraging them to allow themselves to be transformed by the grace of the spirit and to become heralds and messengers of the saving Word of God.

He reflected on the Gospel of the day which tells of how Jesus met the disciples on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and called them to conversion.

Noting that Galilee was a place on the peripheries which was looked upon with suspicion as it was where the people mingled with the Gentiles, the Pope said “nothing good and new was expected from that region, instead, it was precisely there that Jesus began his preaching.” It was there, the Pope said that Jesus proclaimed: "Convert, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand".

This proclamation, he said, “is like a powerful beam of light that pierces the darkness and cuts through the fog.” Read more...

Protecting life from birth to death

By Anna Weaver
Hawaii Catholic Herald

Paulette Vernay, the Diocese of Honolulu’s Respect Life director, has been in the role for a year now. However, her diocesan work has involved pro-life ministry for two decades and she has been with the diocese since 1998.

Besides helping parishes foster pro-life ministries, the Respect Life office runs Project Rachel, a highly confidential post-abortion counseling service with trained priests and lay counselors, and Rachel’s Vineyard, a weekend retreat of 7-10 people going through a process of healing after having an abortion. The office also has two volunteer Natural Family Planning coordinators and currently plans an annual Life Symposium.

What follows are excerpts from the Hawaii Catholic Herald’s interview with Vernay on her role as Respect Life director. Read more...

Saint of the Week

Saint Thomas Aquinas
Feast Day - January 28

For better viewing click HERE.

Thomas so shocked his noble Italian family when he entered the Dominicans about 1244 that his brothers imprisoned him for a year. But he would not yield, and studied under St. Albert the Great, becoming a master of theology in 1256. For the rest of his brief life, the “dumb ox,” as he was dubbed, taught, preached and wrote, producing the monu-mental “Summa Theologica.” His thinking became enormously influential in later centuries and he was named a Doctor of the Church in 1567.
