But one had a unique experience: St.Joseph Sister Helen Prejean says she is a constant pilgrim to the "holyland" of the human dignity and pain of society's most despised members.The author of "Dead Man Walking" and a campaigneragainst the death penalty had a special experience Jan. 21 during the Vatican'sYear of Mercy "Jubilee for Those Engaged in Pilgrimage Work."

Washington D.C., Jan 21, 2016 / 03:02 pm (CNA).- It was an event that wasn't supposed to have anniversaries.When the March for Life started 43 years ago, abortion on demand up to the point of birth had just been legalized by the United States Supreme Court in Roe vs. Wade. At that point, pro-life issues weren't nearly as politically entrenched as they are today – in fact, many legislators on both sides of the aisle thought the decision was ill-conceived and would surely be changed.“People were just in shock, they were short of shell-shocked the year after Roe vs. Wade,” Jeanne Mancini, president of the March for Life Education and Defense Fund, told CNA.“People were thinking that this thing was going to get corrected...they were such poorly conceived Supreme Court decisions, and really outside of the parameters of what the Supreme Court would normally do,” she added.  But it's been 43 years since the March for Life began, and the event ...
Washington D.C., Jan 21, 2016 / 02:46 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The U.S. Supreme Court has announced that it will review a case about a Missouri Christian pre-school which was prohibited from participating in the state’s scrap tire program because it is run by a church.“All we are asking is that we be treated the same as any other group and not be disqualified from the grant program just because we are a church,” Philip Glenn, congregation chairman of Trinity Lutheran Church, told CNA.In January 2012, Trinity Lutheran Church Child Learning Center, which is run by Trinity Lutheran Church of Columbia, applied for the grant, which provides recycled tires to surface children’s playgrounds. The learning center wanted to replace a large portion of the pea gravel surfacing on its playground with a safer rubber product.But the Missouri Department of Natural Resources Solid Waste Management Program said the school could not participate in the 2012 Playground Scrap Tire Sur...
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan 21, 2016 / 02:18 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Archdiocese of Philadelphia and World Meeting of Families have announced that they have a unique way to raise money for local charities this year: auction off the car that Pope Francis used during his historic first trip to the United States.“I’m deeply grateful to FIAT Chrysler for its generosity in giving the Archdiocese of Philadelphia the two FIATS used by Pope Francis during his visit to Philadelphia on September 26-27, 2015,” said Archbishop Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. in a Jan. 20 press release.During his September 2016 visit, FIAT Chrysler made a pair of FIAT 500Ls available for the Holy Father to use during his time in Philadelphia.After the trip, the cars were donated to the archdiocese who has teamed up with the annual Philadelphia Car Show to auction at least one of the cars to benefit various archdiocesan charitable initiatives including Catholic Charities, a women’s maternity ho...
 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...
