PREPARE THE WORD

Try A Little Kindness

One look at the daily news reminds us: It’s a cold, cruel world out there. Innocence is slaughtered every day. The harshness of the world can make us tough, self-protecting, and cold at the center: “Not my job. Not my problem.” But the violence of our generation really is our problem, and the job of responding to it can only be ours. We have one great weapon in the war against cruelty. Today, unwrap the gift of kindness. Use it liberally, especially with those who “trespass against you.”

Today's readings: 

Exodus 1:8-14, 22; Matthew 10:34—11:1 (389).

“Pharaoh then commanded all his subjects, ‘Throw into the river every boy that is born to the Hebrews.’ ”

Angelus

Happy campers grateful for miraculous rescue from Whittier Fire

The first thing you noticed at the Friday afternoon press conference was the size of the Whittier Fire camp. It stretched the length of Dos Pueblos High School up in the foothills of Goleta outside Santa Barbara. A village of pup tents had sprung up, but no one was coming in or out of them. Were these firefighters inside sleeping or out on the fire lines?

There were banks of white trailers, lime-green U.S. Forest Service trucks, a line of porta potties and lots of vans. It must have been some of these vans that brought the 82 camper kids (many from inner-city homes), counselors and staff out of Circle V Ranch Camp. Forest Service commanders, fire chiefs and a local sheriff talked about the bravery of Forest Service patrolman Dave Dahlberg and Santa Barbara County Firefighter Mark Linane. Dahlberg made it into the camp — sponsored by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, Los Angeles Council — over a 1 1/2-mile bumpy road of dirt and asphalt, when two previous tries by sheriff deputies had been driven back by flames and falling trees. Later, Linane drove a bulldozer to clear away the road for everyone to escape.

Church leaders in China remain open to dialogue with Vatican

Fuzhou, China, Jul 19, 2017 / 12:08 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- As the Catholic Church in China journeys toward a normalized relationship with the Holy See, one priest in dialogue with Chinese bishops has seen vast improvement in openness and dialogue on the part of leaders, both in the patriotic and underground Churches.

“That’s one very significant point, a growth in openness, a growth in the Christian churches. I think a second key change has been an openness of the Chinese to receive visitors to indeed dialogue with the Church here in Rome,” said Msgr. Anthony Figueiredo, who has been in personal contact with many Chinese bishops over the last decade.

Florida's abortion waiting period law awaits further testimony in courts

Tallahassee, Fla., Jul 19, 2017 / 04:43 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The attorney general of Florida has been given 60 days to gather evidence and testimonies in defense of a 2015 state law mandating 24-hour waiting periods for abortions. The law's constitutionality is being challenged in the courts, and it has been on hold since its passage. The decision was passed down by Florida Circuit Judge Terry Lewis after a July 19 hearing that had been meant to re-evaluate the law.

In February, the Florida Supreme Court had upheld a lower court’s decision to stay the law after its passage in June 2015. Among the plaintiffs challenging the law are the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida and Gainesville Woman Care, an abortion clinic which started the lawsuit. When the matter came before the state Supreme Court, they issued a stay on the law while they considered the law. The temporary injunction was issued in February.

Pope Francis renews prayer for Venezuela

(Vatican Radio) The Pope during his Angelus  in St Peter's Square on Sunday once again addressed his thoughts to Venezuela. Greeting the Venezuelan Catholic community in Italy he renewed his prayer for what he called, this "beloved country".  Pope Francis' prayer comes on a crucial day for Venezuela: this Sunday marks the popular referendum promoted by the opposition to say no to the constituent assembly proposed by President Maduro. The country's bishops support the initiative, which is not recognized by the authorities, to counteract - they say - the attempt to establish a Marxist military dictatorship. Meanwhile, as the political crisis deepens, the humanitarian crisis worsens. Italian Caritas has published a report entitled which shows that over 11,000 children died in 2016 for lack of medicines and maternal mortality rose by almost 70%. Faced with the food, health and safety crisis, the Italian Bishops' Conference has also offered to contribute 500,000 euros.
