By Msgr. Charles Pope - There are some today who speak of annulment as “just another name for a Catholic divorce.” However, this is not correct. An annulment (more technically described as a “Declaration of Nullity”) is a recognition by the Church, based on evidence, that what may in fact have seemed to be a marriage, was not due to some intrinsic flaw at the time the vows we exchanged.
By Dr. Maike Hickson, LifeSiteNews - There is a small part of an interview conducted by the well-respected American historian and book author, William Thomas Walsh, with the Fatima seer Sister Lucia that might now strike a special note with us, in light of the ongoing disorderly and revolutionary conditions in the U.S... Sister Lucia of Fatima was one of three children who witnessed apparitions of the Blessed Mother in 1917 in Fatima, and she continued to receive messages from heaven for years afterward.
By JD Flynn, CNA - The White House said Sunday that Washington’s archbishop was invited to attend an event with President Donald Trump several days before it took place, amid media reports that the archbishop did not learn of the event until the night before it took place... White House deputy press secretary Judd Deere told CNA June 7 that “Archbishop Gregory received an invitation to the President’s event at the St. John Paul II Shrine the week prior to the President’s visit. He declined due to other commitments.”... Correspondence between Archbishop Wilton Gregory's office and the White House indicates the same.
By Most Rev. Joseph Strickland - I write on June 1, 2020, the Memorial of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church. A relatively new addition to the Liturgical Calendar, but a very ancient title attributed to our Lady. On February 11, 2018, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments issued a decree, at the request of Pope Francis, to inscribe this memorial in the General Roman Calendar on the Monday following Pentecost. It is to take precedence over any other memorials.
