Catholic Daughters of the Americas Comments on Pope's Resignation
The Catholic Daughters of the Americas respects Pope Benedict XVI's recent decision to resign and appreciates his selflessness in doing so for the good of the Church. In his Ash Wednesday liturgy on February 13 the Pope spoke of the virtues of Christian unity and in his Lenten message his theme was "believing in charity calls forth charity.” The motto of the Catholic Daughters is “Unity and Charity” and we are grateful that Pope Benedict included these two faithful qualities among his final communications, especially during the all-important season of Lent. The Holy Father will remain in the thoughts and prayers of all Catholic Daughters during his remaining days as Pope and throughout the next chapter of his life.
Father Matthew’s Sunday Reflection
I want to take a break from our regular scripture reflections to speak a bit about one part of what it means to be a parish: the parish as a place of joy. Our local parishes are celebrating their annual festivals this month and next, which I thoroughly enjoy. I love seeing people take a break from their routines to celebrate being a family in Christ.
