(Vatican Radio)  Two-hundred years ago, on the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul in 1816, a small group of men came together to create an apostolic community and do just what St. Paul himself sought to do: preach the Good News of Jesus Christ to the poor and most abandoned.That group of men is known today as the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (OMI) one of the largest missionary religious orders of the Church, numbering nearly 4,000 priests and religious brothers.The Oblates of Mary Immaculate were founded on February 25, 1816 in Aix-en-Provence in post-revolutionary southern France in response to the deplorable situation of the church in the countryside after the war.Fr. Louis Lougen, OMI, is the Superior General of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate and a Permanent Member of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.Listen to the full interview: Their story begins on 25 February 1816 in southern France when St. Eugene de Mazenod and four compani...
 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...

By Carol GlatzVATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Pope Francis told a group ofseminarians that seeking a so-called "normal" life in the priesthoodwould turn them into pastors who were "mediocre or worse."A priest who is tempted to live the way most people livetoday "begins to settle for getting some attention, judges his ministry onthe basis of his achievements and eases into seeking what he likes -- becominglukewarm and without any real concern for others," he said."Instead, 'normalcy' for us is pastoral holiness,giving one's life," Pope Francis said. "If a priest chooses to bejust a regular person, he will be a priest who is mediocre or worse."The pope's remarks came during an audience Jan. 25 withseminarians and staff of Rome's Sts. Ambrose and Charles Pontifical Seminary,which trains priests for Italy's Lombardy region. Cardinal Angelo Scola ofMilan, metropolitan of Lombardy, also attended the private audience. The pope told the men that preparing for the priesthoodin Rome wasn't just about ...
