Why Our World Needs the Good News of Marriage

By Fr. Shenan J. Boquet | February 19, 2024 |
cross with wedding rings

A few days ago, Archbishop Gabriele Giordano Caccia, Permanent Observer to the Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations, expressed his concern that “the family is increasingly downplayed or even denigrated in international fora.” Archbishop Caccia was addressing the 62nd Session of the Commission for Social Development at the United Nations in New York. He noted that even the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognizes that the “family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.” As such, he noted, it is “central to social development,”…

Stories of Hope from Our Mission Field

By Marisa Cantu | February 21, 2024

Mwajuma Kabati of Tanzania was suffering immensely. She civilly married in 2016 at the age of 24, but her marriage only lasted for 4 years. The reason? She was unable to bear children.

She divorced her husband and civilly remarried, but due to her infertility, this marriage, too, lasted only a few months. Rumors about Mwajuma’s infertility found their way to…

Canada MAID Mental Illness Expansion Delayed

By Marisa Cantu | February 9, 2024

Canada has delayed the impending change to their euthanasia laws that would have expanded euthanasia to those whose sole underlying condition is a mental illness. We recently reported that this expansion was set to take effect in March of 2024 after being delayed from March of 2023. Last week, Canada delayed the expansion once again until 2027.

And yet, despite this delay in expanding euthanasia (referred to in Canada as “MAID”, which…
