Father Stanley Rother – reflections from those who knew him

A story on the Catholic News Agency (Sept. 13, 2013) website tells of the family history and recollections of Father Stanley Rother by two close relatives. Fr. Rother will be beatified on Sept. 23 in Oklahoma City.

One of the storytellers is Sister Marita, Fr. Rother’s sister and the other, Father Don Wolf, his second cousin.

Fr. Rother was martyred on July 28, 1981 in Guatemala.  It is the story about an unlikely priest, from an unlikely place, to take on an unlikely task, and die an unlikely death, now on an unlikely path to become a canonized saint.

Sr. Marita is a religious sister of the Adorers of the Blood of Christ. Fr. Don is a priest of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City and pastor of St. Eugene Parish in Oklahoma City. He is past-president of NFPC (1997-2000).

Monterey priest to receive Lumen Christi award

Father Enrique Herrera, a priest of the Diocese of Monterey and pastor of Holy Trinity Church in Greenfield, Calif. will received the Catholic Extension Society’s 40th anniversary Lumen Christi Award. He will receive the award at a Mass at his parish on Dec. 10.

In announcing the award, Father Jack Wall, president of Catholic Extension, said, “The Lumen Christi Award shines brightly to honor and give recognition to people who are great missionaries in our country. Father Herrera is a great example. He has stood up as a shepherd for his flock and raised them up. He is a ‘voice for the voiceless,’ but he is also helping people to find their own voice, helping them to aspire and to dream. He is a true missionary.”

According to the National Catholic Reporter (Sept. 13, 2017), since arriving at Holy Trinity in the Salinas Valley, Father Herrera saw that parishioners were struggling to feed their families and had few opportunities for a brighter future, he decided that his parish would become a beacon of hope.

Together with his parishioners, he started new programs focused on strengthening faith, education and community.

“Hearts were opened. Individuals started changing. Families started changing. Neighborhoods started changing. Classrooms started changing. The Police Department, Fire Department, school officials, City Council and mayor all got on board.”

A city of 16,000, Greenfield is in the heart of the Salinas Valley. It is comprised mainly of immigrants who come to harvest lettuce, broccoli, grapes and strawberries. Half of the city’s population is under age 21. The average income there is almost 40 percent below the national poverty level.

Fr. Herrera is a member of the Monterey Presbyteral Council.

Pope speaks to newly appointed bishops

In an address to a class of new bishops on Thursday, Sept. 14, Pope Francis told them, “I invite you … to cultivate an attitude of listening, growing in the freedom to renounce your own point of view when it is shown to be partial and insufficient in order to assume God’s point of view.”

The pope told them their job is to “humbly — without attention-seeking or narcissistic behavior — offer your own concrete witness of union with God, serving the Gospel that is cultivated and helped to grow in that specific situation.”

Authentic discernment,” the pope said, “although definitive at every step, is always an open and necessary process, and can be completed and enriched.”

Although Francis did not make any direct reference on Thursday to the controversy surrounding his document on the family, Amoris Laetitia, and its cautious opening to allowing divorced and civilly remarried Catholics to receive Communion, many of the new bishops in his audience may have heard an echo of those debates at several points.

Pope Francis was speaking Sept. 14 at the end of several days of meetings at the Vatican for priests appointed as bishops for the first time, hosted by the Congregations for Bishops and the Oriental Churches and commonly referred to as “new bishops’ school.”

Council of Cardinals talk about ongoing reform of the Curia

In meeting for the 21st time from Sept. 11-13 at the Vatican’s Apostolic Palace, one of the key talking points of the Pope’s Council of Cardinal’s was the selection of personnel in the Roman Curia, with an emphasis on making it more international, and with a higher number of young people and women and ongoing reform of the Roman Curia

In a briefing about the meeting, Vatican spokesman, Greg Burke, said the group’s reflection included Pope Francis’ December 2016 address to the Roman Curia and his October 2015 address on the role of the Synod of Bishops in the church.

Burke called the latest meeting of the council, the group’s 21st since its creation in 2013, a “pause for reflection” led by Honduran Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, its coordinator.

The next meeting is scheduled for Dec. 11-13.
