Pope Francis: “Non-Violence: A Style of Politics for Peace”
26 August 2016 (Vatican Radio) “Non-Violence: A Style of Politics for Peace” is the title of the Message for the 50th World Day of Peace (January 1, 2017), the fourth of Pope Francis. Violence and Peace are at the origin of two opposite ways to building society.
The proliferation of hotbeds of violence produces most serious negative social consequences. The Holy Father sums up this situation in the expression: “A Third World War in Pieces”. Peace, by contrast, promotes social positive consequences and it allows the achievement of real progress. Read more here.

Abortion numbers have dropped in eight of the last nine years in Minnesota to their lowest level since 1974. Officials at Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life attributed the drop in part to the success of lifeaffirming laws that provide women with abortion information and alternatives and empower them to choose life for their unborn children — and themselves.
The annual Abortion Report, issued July 1 by the Minnesota Department of Health, showed a decrease in 2015 of 2.6 percent, following a trend of fewer abortions statewide since MCCL helped to enact the Positive Alternatives law, which took effect in July 2006. The report also shows that nearly 1,700 women decided to give birth after considering the Woman’s Right to Know factual information about fetal development, abortion and alternatives.Read More

We are blessed to have 13 seminarians in formation this fall. Please pray for them as they open their hearts to a life of sacred service in the Diocese of Duluth.
The Seminarian Appeal, which should have arrived by now to every home, is one way in which we financially and prayerfully support our seminarians. The appeal helps to meet the costs of educating and forming our future priests, and is designed to coincide with the feast day of St. John Vianney (Aug. 4), patron saint of all priests.Read More

People nourished by the Latin Mass got some welcome news in July when Father Joel Hastings, pastor of St. Benedict Church in Duluth and director of liturgy for the Diocese of Duluth, announced that beginning in Advent the parish’s noon Mass on Sunday would be offered in Latin.
At least twice a month, it will be offered in the “extraordinary form” (the missal from 1962), and on the other Sundays it will be from the “ordinary form” liturgy celebrated in most parishes, but in Latin with Gregorian chant.Read More
