FRENTE A LA CRUZ | Jesús restablece el orden de la creación

A lo largo de la semana que viene, las lecturas diarias nos llevan a reflexionar sobre el orden que Dios ha escrito en el mundo a través de la creación y el pacto, sobre lo que sucede cuando nos alejamos de ese orden y cómo Jesús vino para restaurarlo.

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson led the rosary walk to Planned Parenthood and was followed by Kenrick-Glennon seminarians.  The annual memorial Mass and prayer vigil commemorating the 44th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision to legalize abortion was held at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. Archbishop Robert J. Carlson was the celebrant and homilist. In his homily he spoke passionately against Board Bill #203 proposed by the St. Louis City board of Alderman.  Following the Mass about 650 participants walked in a rosary procession to the Planned Parenthood facility nearby to pray.

Those who witness to life are undergoing a trial by fire, from the historic Roe vs. Wade decision, to the recent effort in St. Louis City to protect abortion and other reproductive health decisions.

More than 1,000 people attended the annual memorial Mass and prayer vigil Jan. 21 at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. The Mass, organized by the archdiocesan Respect Life Apostolate, commemorates the 1973 Roe decision and includes a Rosary procession to Planned Parenthood.

BEFORE THE CROSS | Jesus became human so we might share in His divinity

The Christmas season concludes on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (this year on Jan. 9). Ordinary Time starts the next day. What memory or grace from the Christmas season will you carry into Ordinary Time to help you live more closely with the Lord this coming year?

The Baptism of the Lord provides a good possibility. In prayer and in our imagination, we might go down into the waters with Jesus. Then, when we rise with Him, we hear the Father speaking over us: you are my beloved son/daughter.

FRENTE A LA CRUZ | El plan de Dios para la salvación nos es revelado un paso a la vez

Muchos niños — y algunos adultos! — están diciendo: "No puedo esperar por las Navidades"

Pero si observamos las lecturas de la semana final de Adviento, vemos como el plan de Dios se descubre en la historia de la salvación, un paso a la vez. Esto nos anima a no apurar la temporada navideña, sino más bien a dejar que las cosas maduren de acuerdo con el tiempo de Dios.
