ANAHEIM, Calif. — Los Angeles Archbishop Jose H. Gomez advised young Catholics to do three things: talk to Jesus, read the Gospels, and do deeds of love and mercy every day.

“The work of Jesus’ words continues through you and though me,” the archbishop said in a March 12 homily. “So in the same way, just be normal. Have fun, enjoy life. … Because Jesus wants to be your friend.”

Archbishop Gomez was the main celebrant and homilist at Mass with more than 15,000 young Catholics in attendance on Youth Day, the first day of the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress.

This year’s gathering March 12-15 at the Anaheim Convention Center drew close to 40,000 people.

The annual event, which began in 1968, draws Catholics from across the United States and other countries. This year, attendees hailed from 49 different states and 21 different countries, with 13 coming from Pakistan. Continue reading

Reader vote ranks top 10 stories of 2013

Readers overwhelmingly chose Pope Francis' election as the top story of 2013 via online vote at www.thecatholictelegraph.com.

By John Stegeman
The Catholic Telegraph

From Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation (see March 2013 cover) to Pope Francis’ election (April 2013 cover) and everything since, The Catholic Telegraph has had the story.

The year 2013 saw the paper’s cover redesigned, and an increased emphasis on the website and social media, even if things didn’t always go according to plan.

“There’s an old line that if you want to make God laugh, make a plan,” Editor-in-Chief Steve Trosley said. “That applies in news without a doubt. We started the year with some grand plans but the pace of the news — a papal election for example, the sheer size of the archdiocese and the requests from our parishes, schools and other groups for coverage preempted most of our designs.”

Still, more than 500 stories appeared in the pages and website of The Catholic Telegraph in 2013.

With that in mind The Catholic Telegraph nominated 10 stories as the year’s best and invited readers select the order via an online survey.

Below, in the order voted by readers, is a glance at the top 10 stories of 2013. Continue reading

Can’t name the 10 commandments? This is pitiful

Catholic Thoughts, September 2013

This is pitiful! Recently, an archdiocesan priest was teaching a class for catechetical certification for teachers and volunteers. The class included 28 Catholic schoolteachers. To change things up a bit, Father thought it would be fun to randomly ask the teachers a few questions of faith. The first question he asked was “What are the Ten Commandments?” He pointed to a teacher for a response, but the teacher could not name them. Continue reading
