Jesus in the sacraments brings healing to souls

Father Shea Bowora, parochial administrator of St. Daniel the Prophet, knows all about healing hearts.  “[Priests] are literally in the business of healing hearts. That's what we do seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Jesus does the heavy lifting. He's specifically healing souls, broken souls. It's Christ Himself who's setting that person free.” In his own walk with the Lord, Father Bowora noticed the Lord healing him and showing him love. He even owes part of his journey to the priesthood to the CDA. 

Pope: Christians must rekindle hope in fighting today’s forms of slavery

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Lent is a time to free oneself from slavery and take action to free others suffering from the multiple forms of slavery that afflict the world, Pope Francis said. Even though baptism has begun a process of liberation, "there remains in us an inexplicable longing for slavery. A kind of attraction to the security of familiar things, to the detriment of our freedom," the pope said in his message for Lent, which begins Feb. 14 for Latin-rite Catholics. Echoing the tragedy of the ancient Israelites, a modern-day Pharaoh "stifles dreams, blocks the view of heaven, makes it appear that this world, in which human dignity is trampled upon and authentic bonds are denied, can never change," the pope wrote.

Pope: For the terminally ill, incurable does not mean ‘un-care-able’

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- People who are terminally ill and their families should always receive the care and assistance they need, Pope Francis said. Incurable does not mean "un-care-able," the pope said in a video message from the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network, formerly known as the Apostleship of Prayer, released Jan. 30. The pope's prayer intention for the month of February is dedicated to people who are terminally ill, and in his video message, he said, "Even when little chance for a cure exists, every sick person has the right to medical, psychological, spiritual and human assistance."
