Pope Francis: Discern and Watch, Even in Good Times
2015-10-09 (Vatican Radio) The Christian must discern all things, even when everything is going well. At his Friday morning Mass at the Casa Santa Marta, Pope Francis focused his remarks on the necessity of discernment of situations, whether it seems to come from God or from the evil one “who always seeks to deceive, to make us choose the wrong path”.

From my youthful years this prayer has held an important place in my spiritual life. … The Rosary has accompanied me in moments of joy and in moments of difficulty. To it I have entrusted any number of concerns; in it I have always found comfort. Twenty-four years ago … scarcely two weeks after my election to the See of Peter, I frankly admitted: “The Rosary is my favourite prayer. A marvellous prayer! Marvellous in its simplicity and its depth ….” — Pope St. John Paul II, Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae
Today is the patronal feast of the Diocese of Duluth, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, from which our Cathedral gets its name. The liturgical feast was originally called “Our Lady of Victory,” and it was established by Pope St. Pius V in honor of a victory by the Christian naval fleet at Lepanto, which was attributed to the faithful praying the rosary.Read More

With continued emphasis at the local, national and international levels on improving safe environment programs, the diocese’s program to protect children and young people has seen some major upgrades over the summer.
Ernie Stauffenecker, director of safe environment for the Diocese of Duluth, said there are three main components to the changes: a new, more efficient, paperless online way to administrate the program; new child protection training for adults; and a new youth safety training program called Circle of Grace.Read More

As I rode the train from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia, I was texting Betsy Kneepkens, our director of marriage and family life, and Father Anthony Craig, pastor of St. Mary’s in Deer River, St. Joseph’s in Ball Club, Sacred Heart in Federal Dam and St. Anne in Bena, and associate in the office, and was delighting with them in our Holy Father’s visit to the United States and the World Meeting of Families.
The Diocese of Duluth was represented well. Along with Father Steve Daigle and Father Mike Schmitz (a presenter at the World Meeting of Families), we had several families attending: the Spry family, the Morrison family, the Pilon family, the Cazin family and the Toma family, as well as a group of devoted pilgrims from across the diocese.Read More
