Why is the womb of consecrated life sterile?"But he warned against fast fixes, saying some religious"congregations experiment with 'artificial insemination,'" in whichthey accept anybody, leading to a host of problems.The vocations process must be done "withseriousness, and one must discern well that this is a true vocation and help itgrow," he told members of religious orders, secular institutes andconsecrated virgins Feb. 1 in the Vatican audience hall.The pope met with some 5,000 men and women taking part inevents in Rome to mark the close of the Year for Consecrated life, which beganNov. 30, 2014, and was to end Feb. 2, the feast of the Presentation of the Lordand the Jubilee of Consecrated Life.Handing his writ...
Vatican City, Feb 1, 2016 / 10:33 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Christ-like obedience, the “terrorism of gossip”, and hope for future vocations were some of the themes Pope Francis addressed during a Monday audience marking the end of the Year for Consecrated Life.Some 5,000 religious men and women attended the audience to mark the end of the year dedicated to the consecrated vocation, which ends Tuesday.Setting aside the prepared text, Pope Francis delivered an off-the-cuff address Feb. 1 in the Vatican's Paul VI Hall, which centered on what he said were three of the core pillars of the religious life: prophecy, nearness to others, and hope.Pope Francis began by reflecting on obedience of the consecrated person, which is essentially “prophecy.”Religious men and women, he said, are carried by a “strong poverty” and “chaste love” toward a “spiritual paternity and maternity for the Church, an obedience.”The obedience of a consecra...

 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...
