Archbishop Kurtz on preparations for papal visit to the U.S.

(Vatican Radio) The head of the U.S Catholic Bishops Conference, Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, says Pope Francis will come to his country as a pastor and a prophet, to walk with people but also to challenge them to conversion of heart.

With less than a month to go before the papal plane touches down in Washington DC at the start of the Pope’s week-long visit to the U.S, Archbishop Kurtz joined other American Church leaders to brief journalists at the annual Religion Newswriters’ Association Conference, which concluded in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Pope's general prayer intention for September is for jobless youth

The general prayer intention of Pope Francis is for thejobless youth: that opportunities for education and  employment may increase for all young  people.   The Holy Father is greatly concerned about high jobless rates among young people, saying they are becoming a lost generation - victim of today’s “throw-away” culture that casts aside anyone who is not profitable economically.  It’s painful to see young people on the lookout for their first job turned away for lack of previous experience, thus nipping them in the bud.  The Pope says the problem is more than merely economic.  It is a problem of dignity.  Without work, one ‎cannot have the experience of dignity which comes from being able to put food on the table and to have a family and a home.  Pope Francis stressed that high  unemployment among youth is a crisis of the  family, “a true social plague” that leaves young people feeling useless.  If the youth are deprived of hope, then the very future and hope of society and of the Church is jeopardized.   Let’s therefore join Pope Francis in his general prayer campaign during September and in saying “no” to the throw-away culture and “yes” to increased opportunities for ‎education and employment  for young people everywhere, for they are  truly the future of humanity.

Pope Francis at Angelus: pray for pure, whole hearts

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis prayed the Angelus with pilgrims and tourists gathered in St Peter’s Square on Sunday. In remarks to the faithful ahead of the traditional prayer of Marian devotion, the Holy Father reflected on the Gospel reading for this Sunday, August 30, the 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, taken from the 7th Chapter of the Holy Gospel according to St. Mark. The reading recounts the questions certain Scribes and Pharisees put to Our Lord, regarding His and the disciples’ observance of certain long-standing customs – or their lack of observance – specifically concerning practices associated with ritual purity.
