• America’s next saint, St. Junípero Serra

    America’s next saint will be the man who evangelized California and is associated with the beginnings of Los Angeles.

  • OneLife LA and 9 Days for Life

    I am looking forward to Saturday’s OneLife LA celebration.

    This will be a day of family and friendship in celebration of the beauty and dignity of every human life — from conception to natural death. 

  • Archbishop calls Serra sainthood 'moment of grace'

    In a press conference earlier today on the airplane to the Philippines, Pope Francis announced that he intends to canonize Blessed Junípero Serra, OFM, when he comes to the United States next September. This is great news and I am very happy about it. We are grateful to our Holy Father Pope Francis for this gift to California and the Americas.

  • ‘We Are One Family Under God’

    For more than 25 years now, the United States Catholic bishops have recognized the first week of every new year as National Migration Week. This is intended to remind us that America is a nation of immigrants and that the Church in America is a Church of immigrants. I worry sometimes that we are forgetting this. But it is true.

  • A year of new discovery and new dedication

    Merry Christmas! I hope that you and your families had a wonderful Christmas.

  • Christmas and the love of God

    Jesus came into this world as a child, vulnerable and dependent. 

  • Mercy is the measure of our love

    Mercy is at the heart of the Gospel and at the heart of our identity as Christians. Jesus came to show us God’s mercy and he is calling us to follow him in showing mercy to others.

  • OneLife LA — and a challenge for Advent

    Advent is a season of mercy. The mercy of God is the great theme running through the first stories of Jesus’ coming. In her Magnificat, Mary sings: “His mercy is from age to age.” Zechariah, father of St. John the Baptist, sings: “The tender mercy of our God … will visit us.”

  • Statement on the announcement of presidential executive orders on immigration

    I am happy that some temporary relief is being offered to help parents and children who right now are living in daily fear that their families will be broken up by arrests and deportations. But the President’s actions today are no substitute for the comprehensive immigration reform our nation needs.

  • Archbishop Gomez on immigration and the next America

    Many of us have forgotten our immigrant roots. But our Church has always been a Church of immigrants, as our nation has always been a nation of immigrants. In earlier generations, we welcomed newcomers from every nation in Europe. Today, we are still welcoming newcomers — but now they come from Latin America, Asia, Oceania and Africa.

Loneliness and prayer

Anna Maria Scaperlanda Biddick

When I was a single adult, as for most single people, loneliness was a presence in my life.  The loneliness didn’t come on Valentine’s Day, when I showed up alone to a wedding, or when I saw an engagement on Facebook.
