Featured Article: Reflections on Race in America Today - I grew up in the Deep South, at a time of even deeper segregation, a convenient term used to describe the complete separation of the races. It defined every aspect of our lives, where we lived, worked or went to school, and, especially, where we worshiped. (Martin Luther King, quipped, that Sunday morning church services were the most segregated hours.) For families venturing out for entertainment or recreation it meant figuring out what was opened to us, and staying away from those that were restricted. We were cautioned at an early age to not cross those boundaries. Read Full Story

Pope to engaged couples: After ‘I do,’ comes ‘may I, thank you, sorry’

The secrets to a loving and lasting union, he said, include treating each other with respect, kindness and gratitude, and never letting daily struggles and squabbles sabotage making peace and saying, "I'm sorry.

"The perfect family doesn't exist, nor is there a perfect husband or a perfect wife, and let's not talk about the perfect mother-in-law!" he said to laughter and applause. Full Story

Planned Parenthood agrees to pay $2 million in fatal abortion procedure

Tonya Reaves was a healthy 24-year-old African-American woman. Sixteen weeks pregnant, she had an abortion performed on July 20, 2012 at Chicago's Planned Parenthood clinic on South Michigan Avenue. There were complications - and Reaves died on the operating table. Planned Parenthood has now paid out $2 million to Reaves' family. Full Story

Atheist And Muslim Presidential Candidates Face The Most Bias

While ninety percent of Americans would vote for a black, a woman, Catholic, Hispanic, or Jewish presidential candidate, only 54 percent would vote for an atheist and only 58 percent would vote for a Muslim according to a Gallup poll Full Story

Israelis look forward to Pope’s Holy Land visit, rabbi says

Pope Francis’ visit to Holy Land is scheduled for May 24-26. Fr. Hofmann outlined three paths of dialogue: the first is to develop the “theological dimension of dialogue,” because “Christian roots are Jewish, and because Christ was Jewish.” The second path is “collaboration for justice and charity, with a priority to the poor, the homeless, and sick and marginalized people.” The third path, he said, is a closer and more visible collaboration in education.

Canon Law Society of America

On November 12, 1939 in Washington, DC, a group of canonists established the Canon Law Society of America as a professional association dedicated to the promotion of both the study and application of canon law in the Catholic Church. In February of 1981, the Society incorporated as a non-profit corporation in the District of Columbia. Today, the Society's membership includes over twelve hundred (1,200) men and women from thirty-five (35)countries. The Society remains active in the study and promotion of canonical and pastoral approaches to significant issues within the Latin and the Eastern Catholic Churches.
