Vatican City, May 18, 2016 / 12:16 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- While Pope Francis might have chastised animal-lovers who treat their pets better than people in last week’s general audience, that didn’t stop him from giving a good pat on the head to Magnum – the Saint Bernard with VIP access to today’s audience.Magnum is quite literally a “Great Saint Bernard.” Bred by an order of priests known as Augustinian Canons, he was born on the Great Saint Bernard Pass, one of the highest passes in the Alps connecting Switzerland and Italy.  He is also a descendant of Barry, one of the most famous St. Bernard rescue dogs known to history.Long before Beethoven drooled his way onto the big screen, Saint Bernard dogs had been made famous by the Augustinians for a more noble cause: saving lives.Since the early 18th century, the Augustinian monks who lived in the treacherous Great Saint Bernard Pass kept the dogs in order to help them on their rescue missions to s...

IMAGE: CNS/Paul HaringBy Cindy WoodenVATICAN CITY (CNS) -- In recognizing civil unions ofheterosexual and homosexual couples, the Italian government has equated thoseunions to marriage, said the head of the Italian bishops' conference.While some supporters of the new law, which passed thelegislature May 11, insisted the law did not recognize gay marriage, CardinalAngelo Bagnasco of Genoa, president of the bishops' conference, said thedifferences are only in the vocabulary used and in "easily circumventedlegal devices."The bill passed after its sponsors removed languageexplicitly allowing one partner in a gay union to adopt the biological child ofthe other partner. Supporters of the bill said it now would be up to individualjudges in adoption cases to decide."The final blow -- which is already being spoken ofpublicly" -- Cardinal Bagnasco said, would be the legalization ofsurrogate motherhood. Surrogacy, he said, "exploits the female body"and profits from the poverty of women willin...
Washington D.C., May 18, 2016 / 05:11 pm (CNA).- While both sides say they are happy with the Supreme Court decision on the Little Sisters’ case, the long-term outcome remains to be seen, legal experts said.Dr. Marc DeGirolami of St. John’s University School of Law said that “there will very likely be another round of litigation” in Zubik v. Burwell, “unless the parties can come to an agreement.”And an agreement might not happen, Dr. Helen Alvare of George Mason University Law School said, because the government’s lawyers “were not at all cooperative” when asked to propose such a solution.On Monday, the Supreme Court sent the current HHS mandate cases of religious non-profits – bundled under the title Zubik v. Burwell – back to the lower courts where they had originated and vacated the previous circuit court rulings in those cases. The Supreme Court emphasized in its decision that it was not issuing a ruling on the me...
Chicago, Ill., May 18, 2016 / 04:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- With the conviction that pro-family policies are critical for a healthy Church, the Archdiocese of Chicago will soon start offering its employees 12 weeks of paid parental leave.The policy, which will go into effect June 1, was announced in the archdiocesan newspaper, the Catholic New World.It will cover both mothers and fathers working at least 26 hours per week who have just had a child or adopted a child.Previously, women at the archdiocese were able to pay for maternity leave through sick time and vacation days. Employees were allow to accrue sick time, and after about three years generally had enough time accumulated for six weeks of leave.Even this policy was more generous than that offered by many companies which have a use-it-or-lose-it approach to sick leave and do not allow it to build up year after year.But the new policy far surpasses the previous one and brings the archdiocese to the forefront of family-friendly p...
Washington D.C., May 17, 2016 / 03:38 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- If you are a Christian, your life should not be a perpetual Lent – this was the message of the communications director for the Little Sisters of the Poor at a prayer breakfast on Tuesday.“Don’t let anything rob you of the joy of the Gospel. Dare to be of good cheer,” Sister Constance Veit, LSP, said at the annual National Catholic Prayer Breakfast May 17 in Washington, D.C.An archbishop had counseled her with those words during the sisters’ ongoing HHS mandate case against the federal government, a case that was sent back to the circuit courts by the Supreme Court on Monday.The National Catholic Prayer Breakfast has been held annually in Washington, D.C. since 2004, with an attendance of over 1,000. Catholic priests, bishops, religious, and lay leaders all gather to reflect and pray for the country.Cardinal Robert Sarah of Guinea, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline...
