WASHINGTON-From Mayan communities in Guatemala breaking language barriers that bring them closer to the Catholic faith, to at-risk youth and young adults in poverty stricken communities in Colombia and Peru becoming faith leaders in their neighborhoods, these outcomes are possible because of the faithful in the United States who contribute to the Collection for the Church in Latin America (CLA). The next collection will be taken in most parishes the weekend of January 23-24.In 2015, the Collection allocated over $6.8 million through more than 425 grants distributed to 25 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. The Collection supports a broad range of pastoral programs throughout the region aimed at deepening the faith. Programs include evangelization, family ministry, formation of laity, prison ministry, youth ministry, and catechesis. Pope Francis recently commended the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Collection for the Church in Latin America for its work throughout th...

Vatican City, Jan 15, 2016 / 04:07 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- On Sunday Pope Francis will become the third pontiff to cross the threshold of the Major Temple in Rome, the most important and significant synagogue in the city.Thirty years have passed since the historic visit of John Paul II in 1986, and in these decades the relationship between Jews and Catholics has become closer, more intense, and, because of this, not absent of difficulty.St. John Paul II brought the spirit of Nostra Aetate into the synagogue, making the historic document that reshaped Catholicism’s relationship with Judaism concrete when in 1986 he became the first Pope since the first century to ever set foot in a synagogue.But the story as to how John Paul II’s decision to visit Rome’s Major Synagogue came about has a little-known twist, beginning with the planning of an international papal trip.In an interview with CNA, Gianfranco Svidercoschi, a longtime Vatican correspondent, the former vice-direc...
Washington D.C., Jan 15, 2016 / 04:03 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- In 2013, there were some 2,100 Christians killed for faith-related reasons across the globe. Last year, that number rose to at least 7,100, according to a recent report from an advocacy group.“The persecution of Christians is getting worse – in every region in which we work – and it’s getting worse fast,” Lisa Pearce, CEO of Open Doors UK and Ireland, said in the group’s 2016 report. “Many countries have dropped down the list, not because persecution there is decreasing, but simply because others are getting worse faster. And it wasn’t good three years ago.”“We can and must be strenuous in protecting Christians and all others facing persecution for their faith,” Pearce added.Open Doors has worked to help persecuted Christians for over 60 years. It was founded by a Dutchman known as Brother Andrew. He smuggled Bibles into Eastern Europe at a time when communist...
Washington D.C., Jan 15, 2016 / 03:30 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Planned Parenthood is suing the pro-life group that released a series of undercover videos exposing its role in offering fetal tissue from aborted babies to harvesters for compensation.The group Center for Medical Progress responded on Thursday that the lawsuit is “frivolous” and they have “done nothing more than tell the truth about Planned Parenthood’s lawless operations.”The lawsuit, filed in a California district court, calls CMP a “complex criminal enterprise” and alleges that they created false companies and identifications, violated contracts, and illegally taped Planned Parenthood officials “with the ultimate goal of interfering with women’s access to legal abortion.”Last summer, the Center for Medical Progress released a series of undercover videos featuring top Planned Parenthood doctors discussing the transfer of fetal tissue from aborted babies to harves...
 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...
