The Rite of Election: RCIA - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

A few weeks ago, there was a picture showing the Rite of Election at the Cathedral. The text did not tell what the Rite of Election is or what it leads to or that it is part of the RCIA. Perhaps you could answer the question, "What is the RCIA?"  Read more...

The Role of Permanent Deacons - Fr. William Saunders

The Roman Primacy and the Spiritual Life - Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J.

The Rules of Fasting - FR. WILLIAM SAUNDERS

Recently I was discussing the Lenten fasting and abstinence regulations with a friend. He told me that a person is supposed to fast one hour before receiving Holy Communion. I honestly have never heard that before. Can you clear up this matter for me?  Read more...

The Sanctity of Human Life - Fr. William Saunders

My friend is Greek Orthodox. In his Church, they make the sign of the cross crossing themselves from the right shoulder to the left, but we do the opposite. Why is there a difference? When did this come into practice?  Read more...
