• God’s magnificent plan for the family

    As the summer winds down and we move into fall, we need to turn our prayers and reflection to the meeting of the world’s bishops that Pope Francis has called for October 5-19 in Rome.

  • The new media and the new evangelization

    This week, we held our annual C3 Technology Conference at Loyola Marymount University.

     

  • Make time to pray

    As I write, we are preparing for the Feast of the Transfiguration.

  • Praying for the world

    As we look around the world during these summer months, we see that there is a lot for us to pray about. 

  • ‘You gave your children good ground for hope’

    The following is adapted from the archbishop’s homily at the annual Mass in Recognition of Immigrants July 20, after which thousands lined up, inside and outside of Our Lady of the Angels Cathedral, to venerate the traveling relic of Santo Toribio Romo. 

  • Do we have hearts that are ready for the Gospel?

    Archbishop Gomez is on vacation this week. The following is adapted from his homily last Sunday at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. His column will return next week.

  • A time for tenderness and hospitality

    The immigration “issue” is not going away because immigration is more than a political issue. Every day we hear new stories of personal tragedy and families who are suffering because of our broken immigration system.

  • After the Hobby Lobby case

    The U.S. Supreme Court made a good decision this week in recognizing that Hobby Lobby’s owners can follow their religious beliefs and conscience in running their family business. 

  • Holiness is our daily task

    Holiness is the heart of our relationship with Jesus and holiness is the heart of our mission as Christians.

  • We need a new conversation about religion in American life

    Last week at the annual Spring meeting of the United States Catholic bishops, my brother bishops and I voted unanimously to continue our “ad hoc” Committee for Religious Liberty for another three years.

Vocational formation and the new evangelization: Ongoing discernment

The 35-year old lawyer asks himself, “Do I leave the job that I love, sell my condo, and give up the life that I have been living to enter the Seminary? After all, I have been thinking about the priesthood since grade school.”
