Pope Francis: Homily for World Day of the Poor

Pope 1119172017-11-19 (Vatican Radio) Pope Francis celebrated Mass on Sunday – the XXXIII Sunday in Ordinary Time and the first-ever World Day of the Poor – in St. Peter’s Basilica.

"Omission", said the Pope, "is  the great sin where the poor are concerned. Here it has a specific name: indifference. It is when we say, “That doesn’t regard me; it’s not my business; it’s society’s problem”. It is when we turn away from a brother or sister in need, when we change channels as soon as a disturbing question comes up, when we grow indignant at evil but do nothing about it. God will not ask us if we felt righteous indignation, but whether we did some good." Read more here.

Father Michael Schmitz: When not liking the liturgy leads family to stop going to Mass

Question: My family refuses to go to Mass because there are too many “extras” (like baptisms), too much singing, and too many announcements. Why can’t we have a “low Mass” without all of that stuff? Isn’t the church supposed to adapt and keep up with all the people?

Answer: There are a couple of elements in your question that I would like to address individually.

Father Richard Kunst: Learn from St. Hubert — don’t skip church to go hunting

If you are an outdoorsman, November is the most wonderful time of the year! Hunting is in the air, and although hunting is an interest of both sexes, I certainly see more wives alone at Mass during this time than I see husbands. Often, women will refer to themselves as hunter’s widows.

Though I was born and raised in northeastern Minnesota, I was never a big hunter. For several years, I would hunt pheasant on my family’s property, but I personally never got into big game like deer or bear. But I sure appreciate hunters, and I have to admit I am attracted to the idea of going hunting more often than I do. (Last time I went, I got a tick with Lyme Disease.)

Betsy Kneepkens: Hefner death, NFL controversy show that our bodies reflect our souls

I can’t help but get excited when the secular world unwittingly reports beliefs imparted by the Catholic Church and does an exceptional job proving those teachings true.

This past month, two entirely different news stories were widely published, frequently discussed, and commented about on social media: the ongoing story of NFL players who have opted to kneel during the National Anthem and coverage of the death and legacy of Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy and a progressive in the area of what has been termed “sexual freedom.”
