The Power Of Love

Our long, difficult summer in this country seems to continue without end. Even as the violence of Charlottesville and its aftermath still weigh heavy on our hearts and minds, this past weekend we saw the outbreak of new violence and racial tensions in St. Louis. We have come a long way in...

Achievement Versus Fruitfulness

There’s a real difference between our achievements and our fruitfulness, between our successes and the actual good that we bring into the world. What we achieve brings us success, gives us a sense of pride, makes our families and friends proud of us, and gives us a feeling of being worthwhile,...

Sunday Readings For September 16 & 17

Mercy and forgiveness should be at the heart of the Christian life. Yet, as today’s First Reading wisely reminds us, often we cherish our wrath, nourish our anger, refuse mercy to those who have done us wrong. Jesus, too, strikes close to home in today’s Gospel, with His realistic portrayal of...

The Pope’s New Translation Rules And The Future Of Catholic Worship

While Pope Francis was in Colombia on Sept. 9, the Vatican issued a new legal document in his name that transfers the lion’s share of the control over translation of texts for use in Catholic worship to local bishops’ conferences and away from the Vatican. In effect, it was the clearest signal to...

The Red Shoes

As a child, Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875) was poor and forced to work for a living as a tailor’s apprentice. He suffered a lifelong unrequited love for opera singer Jenny Lind. His “fairy tales” are full of orphaned and abandoned children, inanimate objects that suffer human emotions, and...

Since 1895, The Tidings has been telling the story of the Catholic Church — both here in Los Angeles and across the globe. On July 1, 2016, we transformed the Tidings newspaper into a multimedia platform, Angelus News.

Angelus is the weekly print “home” for, John Allen and his colleague, Inés San Martin. Nationally known Catholic journalists and essayists like Ruben Navarrette, Kathryn Lopez, Grazie Pozo Christie, and Mike Aquilina regularly contribute. Best-selling Catholic author, Dr. Scott Hahn, writes a weekly Scripture column for us. These voices complement key contributors like Archbishop Gomez, Bishop Robert Barron, Father Ronald Rolheiser and Heather King.

Angelus News provides national and worldwide reporting, stunning photography and a design that’s attractive to Catholics of every age. Features include: a weekly newsmagazine, a complete daily digital edition, social media channels and Always Forward, our weekday digital newsletter.

As the largest archdiocese in the United States, we have a great story to tell. Our parishes, pastors and community of faith are the core of our story. And Angelus News tells it well.

St. John Paul II Was Here — 30 Years Ago This Week

I talk a lot about the saints who have come to Los Angeles to pray and to minister and to encourage us. I hope I will never lose that sense of amazement that I feel, knowing that we are walking in the footsteps of saints, praying in the places where they prayed, working in places where they...

Stuck In Traffic

There’s a famous billboard that hangs along a congested highway that reads: You aren’t stuck in traffic. You are traffic! Good wit, good insight! How glibly we distance ourselves from a problem, whether it is our politics, our churches, the ecological problems on our planet, or most anything...

Sunday Readings For Sept. 9 & 10

As Ezekiel is appointed watchman over the house of Israel in the first reading, so Jesus in the Gospel reading establishes his disciples as guardians of the new Israel of God, the Church (see Galatians 6:16). He also puts in place procedures for dealing with sin and breaches of the faith,...

Art, For God's Sake

When movie directors want us to know that a church is Catholic, what do they show? Art. The camera scans a row of stained-glass windows depicting the saints — then comes to rest on a statue of the Blessed Virgin crushing the head of a serpent. Hanging over the altar is a crucifix. Painted...

Innovations, Old Lessons Go Hand In Hand In Education

It’s back to school time. And that means a new twist on the familiar laws of supply and demand. As a parent of school-age children, and someone who has taught in public schools, it’s clear to me that this generation of parents is among the most demanding in recorded history. And, in response,...
