At last night's Opening Mass for the National Prayer Vigil for Life, Cardinal Seán O'Malley, Archbishop of Boston, gave a fantastic homily comparing "reproductive rights" to the emperor's new clothes. Those of us who espouse a Catholic view on abortion and see the inherent fraud in morality based solely on personal choice feel disempowered to speak up. We feel like we're the crazy ones. But we can't be deceived like the crowd in the Hans Christian Andersen story. Here's the footage of his entire homily, and you can find the text of Cardinal Seán's homily below.

When my kids were younger, taking them to church was a challenge. They were loud and moving about everywhere. When my children were very young, we first attended a church that had a crying room. Many of you will remember those rooms, stuffed with children who were running around as their parents chased after them and tried to control them.

It takes the talents of many different people to put together the Telethon each year. A lot of planning and preparation happens beforehand, and the two days of the Telethon itself are a whirlwind of excitement. We spoke to some of our CatholicTV personalities, who shared their favorite Telethon memories, both on and off camera.

Each year, on the fourth Thursday of November, Americans gather with their people around the nation for feasts of thanksgiving. They break bread with their loved ones, and take time to express gratitude for the blessings of the year. For many Americans, the day is one of only a handful in the year when they can be reunited with their families.

I have often written about loneliness over the years. I once had a conversation with my good friend, Father Frank McFarland, and he told me of all the letters he had received from people talking about being lonely. They talked about how hurt they were and spoke of a pain that was difficult to alleviate. I thought about that conversation a great deal, and that is why I began to write about the subject.

As of August 24, the Archdiocese of Boston is blessed to have two new auxiliary bishops: Bishop Mark O’Connell and CatholicTV’s own Bishop Robert Reed. As modern-day successors of Jesus’s Twelve Apostles, bishops have a big job. That job is always changing and evolving to meet the needs of the Church and the bishop’s specific diocese. In particular, auxiliary bishops are called to take on the duties assigned to them by the Ordinary.
