      Catholic Bishops Back Decision to Deny Nancy Pelosi Communion: She Must Repent

      Over the weekend, more Catholic bishops have come out in support of the decision to deny Nancy Pelosi communion due to her aggressive promotion of abortion up to birth. As LifeNews reported, Cordileone said he formally notified U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week that she can no longer be allowed communion because she is no longer in communion with the Catholic Church by virtue of her repeatedly promoting abortion.

      What the world can learn from the Buddhist concept loving-kindness

      (The Conversation) — As the world deals with the trauma caused by COVID-19, World Kindness Day , observed on Nov. 13 annually, is a good opportunity to reflect on the healing potential of both large and small acts of kindness. Indeed, it was the kind acts of essential workers that helped save many lives . As a scholar of Buddhist studies, I have researched the ways in which Buddhist monks talk about kindness and compassion toward all beings.

      Catholic Bishops: Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 Vaccine ‘Morally Compromised’

      The Archdiocese of Miami agrees.

      “If you had a choice between the three vaccines we recommend either Pfizer or Moderna, which are cleaner ethically. But if you have no choice, due to material cooperation, you should still be able to take the vaccine in good conscience.”

      The stance contradicts the Vatican, which earlier this year said it was acceptable for Roman Catholics to get “any” COVID-19 vaccine, even one derived from aborted fetuses.

      Rabbi Abraham Cooper: De Blasio’s angry outburst scapegoating Jews in coronavirus pandemic is dangerous Praying at home this year will result in the lost opportunity to recite specific communal prayers, such as Kaddish and Yizkor for loved ones who have passed away; the inability to hear the Torah read publicly; and the inability to fulfill the commandment of hearing the shofar (ram’s horn) blown.

      My spiritual path through the COVID-19 darkness

      My spiritual path through the COVID-19 darkness by Email (RNS) — It started three months ago with a sore throat. Then the dizziness began. When my heart rate jumped to a precipitous 150 beats per minute, I went to the emergency room, or rooms, I should say — I have lost count but am sure of at least four ER visits. Once, when my oxygen dipped into the 80s, indicating hypoxemia, I was admitted to the hospital, but I was one of the lucky ones who did not get intubated.

      As a pandemic peaks at Christianity’s Easter climax, churches adapt online

      On Palm Sunday (April 5), the Rev. Ted Gabrielli, a bespectacled Jesuit with a bushy beard, stood in the bed of a roving pickup truck that traveled through Boyle Heights, a mostly Latino neighborhood on Los Angeles’ east side.

      Gabrielli, a pastor at Dolores Mission Church, greeted neighbors from the truck and blessed the homes, alleys and streets he passed. He greeted many by name. One neighbor, caught on a Facebook livestream of the procession, stood from her home waving palms, the symbol of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem in the week before he was crucified.

      Pope Francis prays to empty Vatican, St. Peter's Square

      As Easter approaches , images from an empty St. Peter's Square during a prayer Friday paint a stark portrait of the Vatican, which, along with surrounding Italy, has been afflicted by coronavirus. During the Urbi and Orbi prayer, Pope Francis stood underneath a canopy as he spoke to an empty St. Peter's Square. The Pope likened the coronavirus pandemic to an "unexpected, turbulent storm" that brings us on "the same boat."

    14. DIOCESE OF ORANGE RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS | OC Catholic

      As news surrounding coronavirus continues to emerge, Catholics across Orange County are asked to take necessary precautions to stop the spread of this virus. We acknowledge the importance of washing of our hands, “social distancing” and “flattening the curve” to restrict its spread.

      The mission of the Church is the salvation of souls. We consider it essential that churches remain open for worship for the care of souls, just as hospitals remain open for care of the body. While other parish-related gatherings are being canceled, during this time of crisis the Church is called to provide hope and comfort.

      The public’s health and safety are paramount to the Diocese of Orange. We are monitoring the health situation and will make changes as needed.

      Ash Wednesday: A changing tradition

      Are you ready to give up caffeine for 40 days? What about your social media accounts? While giving up those things may seem hard for you, Christians long ago used to give up a whole lot more.

      Ash Wednesday is today. It marks the first day of Lent in Western churches. The ashes symbolize penance and the dust from which God made people.
      When priests mark Christian's forehead with the ashes they often say, 'Repent and believe in the Gospel,' or 'Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.'

      How to Pray the Psalms

      Share on Facebook Christian history certainly supports a robust use of the Psalms in our worship. In the first few centuries after Jesus, the Psalms generated more commentaries than any other biblical book. By the fourth century, at the latest, the book of Psalms (the Psalter) was being used regularly for Christians to sing. For Benedictine monks, the Rule of Saint Benedict (c. 530) stipulated that all 150 Psalms should be sung each week! We have come a long way from this focus on the Psalms.

      Dissatisfaction

      What are you dissatisfied with in your life?

      Dissatisfaction is Gods way of pointing out an area of our life that we are passionate about and needs some work.  We need to think about it and clearly understand our dissatisfaction, where it comes from WHY we are dissatisfied, and then give careful thought and consideration on how we are going to respond to our feeling of dissatisfaction.  The challenge is to understand it and develop a plan to respond to it instead of simply REACTING to it.

      I'm an end-of-life educator. Here's what I've learned about death.,

      It’s not the kind of career you dream about as a kid. It’s not glamorous like an astronaut or a rock star, and it’s not easy to explain when someone asks what you do for a living. If you’re self-employed like I am, there’s no 401(k) or vacation pay, and you work seven days a week. But the good news is that there’s no glass ceiling, and no age discrimination (maturity is an asset).
