• Our daily bread

    May is Mary’s Month. It is a new moment ... when we reflect on the love that our Blessed Mother showed to us in bringing Jesus into the world. As I was reflecting on this week’s column, I found myself wondering: Did Our Lady ever pray the Our Father?

  • Praying for holiness and the kingdom

    The Church’s saints have always recognized that the Lord’s Prayer is a summary of his whole Gospel. And each word and phrase in the prayer is a rich source for us to contemplate and reflect on.

  • Praying as children

    We have so much to pray for in our lives and in our troubled world. As you do, I pray for many things during the course of any day. And often events cause me to pray for special intentions.

  • Reflections on ‘The Joy of Love’

    Amoris Laetitia (“The Joy of Love”) is a deep and important document. Pope Francis has asked us to read his new apostolic exhortation on marriage and the family slowly and patiently. ... The pope is clear that he has no intention of changing Church doctrine or teaching. Instead he wants to change our hearts.

  • Statement on Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation on Love in the Family

    Amoris Laetitia (“The Joy of Love”) is a deep and important document. It comes at a critical time, when the meaning of marriage, family and human love is confused and disputed in our society. So I welcome this document as a gift to the Church but also to everyone who wants to understand what God really intends for our true happiness as men and women.

  • Praying the Our Father

    We are still living in the beautiful and joyful light of Easter! And I want to return in my column to the theme of prayer that I introduced during Lent. ... In these coming columns, I want to talk about the prayer that Jesus gave us, the Lord’s Prayer.

  • In this time of Easter

    I hope that you and your loved ones and families had a blessed Easter. I shared Easter here with my family and it was a beautiful time. ... This was a special Easter here in Los Angeles and in the universal Church. 

  • Holy Week and the Supreme Court

    We are preparing to enter into the most sacred days in the Church’s calendar — Holy Week, the week of our salvation. ... On Wednesday of Holy Week, March 23, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a critical case concerning religious liberty.

  • Stopping the Christian ‘genocide’

    The story of Christianity is written in the blood of martyrs. ... And nearly every week throughout the year, our liturgy remembers the witness of someone who has shed his blood or her blood for following Jesus.

  • Where God’s desire meets our own

    I was inspired to see so many of you at our Religious Education Congress this weekend. This year marked the Congress’ 60th anniversary, making it one of the oldest and largest Catholic gatherings of its kind in the world.
