• Lent is a time of solidarity and concern for others

    Lent comes early this year. In fact, next week, February 18, is Ash Wednesday and Lent begins.

  • Marriage and the mystery of the family

    In the family, we learn that our Father has a loving purpose for our lives and that each of us has a “vocation” or calling from God — either to marriage or the priesthood or consecrated life or to live as lay faithful serving our neighbors in the worlds of work and family.

  • ‘As long as there are Christians, no one should have to suffer alone’

    There are many injustices in our society, but the most fundamental is the one we rarely acknowledge — this routine taking of innocent human life that goes on every day. So as we pray for these little souls, we pray tonight for our city, our state, and our nation.

     

     

  • America’s next saint, St. Junípero Serra

    America’s next saint will be the man who evangelized California and is associated with the beginnings of Los Angeles.

  • OneLife LA and 9 Days for Life

    I am looking forward to Saturday’s OneLife LA celebration.

    This will be a day of family and friendship in celebration of the beauty and dignity of every human life — from conception to natural death. 

  • Archbishop calls Serra sainthood 'moment of grace'

    In a press conference earlier today on the airplane to the Philippines, Pope Francis announced that he intends to canonize Blessed Junípero Serra, OFM, when he comes to the United States next September. This is great news and I am very happy about it. We are grateful to our Holy Father Pope Francis for this gift to California and the Americas.

  • ‘We Are One Family Under God’

    For more than 25 years now, the United States Catholic bishops have recognized the first week of every new year as National Migration Week. This is intended to remind us that America is a nation of immigrants and that the Church in America is a Church of immigrants. I worry sometimes that we are forgetting this. But it is true.

  • A year of new discovery and new dedication

    Merry Christmas! I hope that you and your families had a wonderful Christmas.

  • Christmas and the love of God

    Jesus came into this world as a child, vulnerable and dependent. 

  • Mercy is the measure of our love

    Mercy is at the heart of the Gospel and at the heart of our identity as Christians. Jesus came to show us God’s mercy and he is calling us to follow him in showing mercy to others.

Easter and beyond

Anne Hansen

We move quickly from our major religious holidays each year. It’s not intentional. Life hurries along and as soon as the sun sets on one holiday the next is being touted by merchants looking to sell us whatever the next big day brings. To remain in the spirit of the religious holiday — in this case Easter — takes deliberate intention.
