He cleaned and tended the front desk whilethe Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, founders of the school, had dinner."Hewould leave Central High School at 2 p.m. and work in the library until about 6p.m. Then, he would go to the Columbia Gym and work out," said Tori MurdenMcClure, Spalding's president and an athlete who worked with Ali in years past.Ali, who was raised in a Christian household,learned to box at the Columbia Gym, located in the basement of ColumbiaAuditorium, which is now the Spalding University Center.

Washington D.C., Jun 9, 2016 / 04:02 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- There is a young and vital presence of religious sisters, novices and postulants in U.S. Catholic life, a new survey has found.The Council of Major Superiors of Women Religious has released its latest survey of its 120 member communities in 137 U.S. dioceses.Mother Mary Agnes Donovan, S.V., council chairperson and superior general of the Sisters of Life, said the council is “blessed” to have both older and younger institutes in its membership.“The presence of the well-established communities lends a wisdom and guiding presence to the newer communities,” she said. “I am sure that without the mentoring support and generosity of these superiors, communities such as ours would never have come to fruition.”The council membership survey report, released in May, drew on 106 responses from the major superiors of the 120 member communities. There are about 6,000 women religious among the counci...
Vatican City, Jun 9, 2016 / 03:02 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The sick and disabled have always held a special place in Pope Francis’ heart, and have been the recipients of some of his most tender acts as Bishop of Rome. Now they will take on the prominent roles at a Mass for the Year of Mercy at the Vatican.Thousands of sick and disabled persons will journey to Rome with their families and caregivers this week for a special jubilee in their honor, culminating with a June 12 Mass said by Pope Francis in which the sick and disabled will conduct all of the readings, do the singing, and serve at the altar.“I would like to highlight the importance of this jubilee of the sick and disabled because we know that many times in our ceremonies a small group of them are present, but in this opportunity they will be the protagonists,” Archbishop Jose Octavio Ruiz Arenas said June 9.Secretary of Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, Archbishop Ruiz spoke to jo...
Los Angeles, Calif., Jun 9, 2016 / 02:49 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Assisted suicide will change California for the worse, Archbishop Jose Gomez of Los Angeles said on Wednesday, adding that Catholics and others must take action to show they will care for the ailing, not aid in killing them.“With the new ‘End of Life Options’ law we are crossing a line – from being a society that cares for those who are aging and sick to a society that kills those whose suffering we can no longer tolerate,” the archbishop said June 8.“Our government leaders tell us that granting the right to choose a doctor-prescribed death is compassionate and will comfort the elderly and persons facing terminal and chronic illness,” he said.“But killing is not caring. True compassion means walking with those who are suffering, sharing their pain, helping them bear their burdens. Loving your neighbor as yourself is not a duty we fulfill by giving our neighbor a lethal dose ...
By Carol GlatzVATICAN CITY (CNS) -- A "my way or the highway"attitude is not Catholic -- it's heretical, Pope Francis said."Jesus always walks with us, he gives us the ideal,he accompanies us toward the ideal, he frees us from this cage of rigidity ofthe law," the pope said June 9 during a morning Mass in the chapel of theDomus Sanctae Marthae.Jesus teaches "a healthy realism," he said, onethat endorses a peaceful resolution over a war of entrenched, opposinginterests. The pope's homily focused on the day's Gospel reading (Mt5:20-26) in which Jesus tells his disciples to settle with their opponents andbe reconciled with their brothers because they will be judged for harboringanger and lobbing insults."We are so used to (certain) adjectives and we havea very creative vocabulary for insulting others," the pope said, accordingto Vatican Radio. Swear words, he said, are often spoken "with muchcharity, but we say them to others."Insulting others is "killing, because it is giving aslap t...

(Vatican Radio)  Pope Francis has decided to set up a committee to oversee the distribution of money to Ukrainians who are affected by the conflict in the east of the nation. The money was collected by Catholic churches across Europe on Sunday 24th April in response to a personal appeal by the Pope. The setting up of the committee came just days before a scheduled visit to Ukraine by the (Vatican) Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin.Speaking to journalists, the Director of the Holy See’s Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, said the money would be distributed to all those impacted by Ukraine’s conflict, regardless of their religion or ethnic group.  He said the committee will consist of a President, Jan Sobilo, auxiliary Bishop of Kharkiv-Zaporizhia, and four other members and its mandate will run for one year and will be renewed if deemed necessary. Experts say there are more than 1.7 million displaced people in Ukraine as a result of the con...
