The USCCB applauds the passing of a new immigration legislation that would provide a pathway to citizenship to thousands of immigrants. I encourage every Catholic to leave their political banner aside and support this effort that would provide legal protection to many immigrants. I’ve heard many Catholics repeatedly say that undocumented immigrants should be here the legal way or that they should somehow become “legalized.” This would be a “legal” way for them to obtain permanent residency and eventual citizenship…. Read more

Apparently the tragic death of 17-year-old Noa Pothoven has been widely misreported around the globe as euthanasia or assisted suicide, which is legal under certain circumstances in the Netherlands. According to new reports she in fact did ask to be euthanized but the hospital refused. It appears to be more of a case of suicide and not euthanasia.

Even though some people will remain skeptical and call it coincidences, we have seen the power of novenas in our family a number of times. I’m not the kind of guy who believes that God is just ready to grant us miracles if we only ask “in faith.” Don’t get me wrong, I believe in miracles but I don’t believe God’s primary job is to give us whatever we want. Only he knows exactly what we need and that is… Read more

“Pasado el sábado, María Magdalena, María la de Santiago y Salomé compraron aromas para ir a embalsamarle. Y muy de madrugada, el primer día de la semana, a la salida del sol, van al sepulcro.

Y entrando en el sepulcro vieron a un joven sentado en el lado derecho,… Read more

“When the Sabbath was over, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. They had been saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?” When they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had… Read more
