Pope Francis: Gospel Must Be Proclaimed with Humility

Pope 0425172017-04-25 (Vatican Radio) The Gospel must be proclaimed with humility, overcoming the temptation of pride. That was the exhortation of Pope Francis at the morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, on the feast of St Mark the Evangelist. 

Jesus gave His disciples a mission: to proclaim the Gospel, “to not remain in Jerusalem, but to go out to proclaim the Good News to all. In his homily, Pope Francis reflected on passage from the Gospel of St Mark, which relates the story of the Great Commission. He said “the Gospel is always proclaimed on the journey, never seated, always on the journey.” Read more here.

Diocese News From The Northern Cross

Father Michael Schmitz: Gluttony is not joy — we can only truly enjoy things when we’re free

It seems like every time I want to do something that I think will be fun, the church has a rule against it. Why is the church so against pleasure? What’s wrong with enjoying yourself and the good things in life?

This is a great question. It is connected to how profoundly misunderstood God’s rules and the church’s teachings are. You mention that there seem to be so many “noes” for those who want to follow God that we can be tempted to think that God dislikes pleasure and enjoyment. But is that really the case?

Bishop Paul Sirba: Don’t fall away from the sacrament of confession this Lent

It is hard to appreciate God’s mercy if we don’t acknowledge that we are sinners. It’s difficult to think good news is good news if we are not in need of it.

Recently, a priest from another diocese called and spoke to me about what he perceives as a falling off in the reception of the sacrament of confession. He is pastor of a large parish, several thousand families, which has a good tradition of participation in this great sacrament of healing. He doesn’t have the numbers yet, but he senses that fewer people have come to confession this Lent. Coming off the Jubilee Year of Mercy, this is distressing to him. He is wondering: Why?
