Washington D.C., Jan 22, 2016 / 09:15 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Pro-lifers must make their lives a Nativity scene where they provide a welcoming witness and  see Christ in the faces of the unborn, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York said at the Jan. 21 March for Life vigil Mass in Washington, D.C. “In the tiny baby, born or pre-born, we see the infant Jesus; in that child’s mother, especially when confused, scared, and hopeless, we see Mary at the crib of Bethlehem,” he said in his homily. An estimated crowd of 9,000 attended the Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the largest church in North America. The Mass started an all-night prayer vigil for life on the eve of the annual March for Life. Thirty-three cardinals and bishops, along with some 250 priests, concelebrated the Mass. Sixty deacons and 400 seminarians were also in attendance. Friday, Jan. 22 marks the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme C...

(Vatican Radio) In his annual allocution to the Roman Rota, delivered on Friday, Pope Francis touched on two major themes: the role of faith in making a marriage, and the complementarity of truth and mercy – especially as the Church’s marriage law is concerned in practice.The Roman Rota is the highest ordinary appellate court in the Catholic Church’s legal system, and deals primarily with cases of marital nullity.One of the judges – Prelate-auditors is their official title – of the Tribunal of the Roman Rota, Msgr. David Maria Jaeger, OFM, told Vatican Radio the speech struck many of the Canon Law experts who heard it as a corrective to more-or-less widespread misconceptions about the way that faith “works” to make a marriage valid, and about the way that the twin objects of justice and mercy are served through the Church’s judicial organs.“In speaking afterwards with professors of Canon Law,” said Msgr. Jaeger, “I ...
(Vatican Radio) International Director of Jesuit Refugee Service, Father Tom Smolich said unless we deal with the “push-factors” the flow of refugees and migrants to Europe will continue no matter what dangers, walls, borders or other barriers we place in their way. He said that’s why it's so imperative to end the war in Syria. Father Smolich was speaking about the latest tragedy involving the deaths of over 40 migrants when two smugglers boats capsized in the Aegean Sea and the remarks made by the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls who warned that Europe’s migration crisis was putting the EU at risk.Listen to the interview with Father Tom Smolich, International Director of Jesuit Refugee Service:  Asked for his reaction to the deaths of over 40 migrants and refugees who drowned when two smugglers’ boats sank in the eastern Aegean Sea, Father Smolich spoke of his sadness, saying the drownings were another example of the lack of value placed b...
The contribution of religions, which go beyond racial and ethnic divisions, is important for peace and reconciliation, said Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and Card Malcolm Ranjith, Archbishop of Colombo, at a ceremony marking the Tamil harvest festival of Thai Pongal, which this year fell on 18 January.  At the event, held at the Payagala Hindu College in Kalutara (south of Colombo), several cultural and religious activities were held to promote peace and reconciliation, starting with pupils. "Building peace and reconciliation does not take place only through the implementation of laws and the adoption of a new Constitution. It can only be done through religious philosophies,” said President Sirisena in his address.  In a country that is still suffering from the wounds caused by the war between the army and Tamil rebels, which lasted about 30 years, “religion is essential in the construction of national unity,” said Card Ranjith. Fo...

 WASHINGTON-Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York called on everyone "concerned about the tragedy of abortion" to recommit to a "vision of life and love, a vision that excludes no one" on January 14. His statement marks the 43rd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion. Cardinal Dolan chairs the Committee on Pro-Life Activities of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops."Most Americans oppose a policy allowing legal abortion for virtually any reason - though many still do not realize that this is what the Supreme Court gave us," wrote Cardinal Dolan. "Most want to protect unborn children at later stages of pregnancy, to regulate or limit the practice of abortion, and to stop the use of taxpayer dollars for the destruction of unborn children. Yet many who support important goals of the pro-life movement do not identify as 'pro-life,' a fact which should lead us to examine how we present our pro-life vision to others.""Even as Americans rema...
