The Melchizedek Project is a discernment group for high school seniors and above who love Jesus Christ and His Church, and who are willing to talk to other like-minded men about their future. The group meetings are NOT meant to convince you that priesthood is your vocation. You could very well be called to marriage or another vocation. But as a Catholic man – even if you’re currently dating – at some point you have to ask yourself whether or not God is calling you to be a priest. Learn more here.

        On Ash Wednesday morning Pope Francis celebrated the general audience with 30,000 faithful gathered in St. Peter's Square. Pope Francis dedicated this Ash Wednesday's catechesis to the Lenten journey of 40 days that leads us to the Easter Triduum, and recalled the two suggestions offered to us by the Church in this period: to be more aware of the redemptive work of Christ, and to live our Baptism in a more committed way.

        Continued misrepresentations about the Advanced Directives bill from the 83rd Texas Legislature have prompted the Texas bishops to issue a letter correcting the specifics of the reforms and how they comport with Catholic moral teachings. The bi-partisan legislation (H.B. 1444 and S.B. 303) endorsed by the Texas Catholic Conference would have protected the lives of patients, respected the wishes of families, and safeguarded the consciences of medical providers at the end of life. It was a tremendous improvement over existing law, which fails to protect life by allowing unilateral Do Not Attempt Resuscitation orders for patient's without notice, permits withholding of nutrition and hydration to hasten death, and discriminates against the disabled when deciding to end treatment. The reform bill endorsed by the bishops prohibited withholding of food or water, required patients and families be notified of their rights to reject DNARs, and provided a clear, balanced procedure for resolving disputes between doctors and families.

        Texas' Roman Catholic Bishops issued a statement expressing disappointment at the decision by the Federal District Court in San Antonio to strike down the state’s constitutional ban on same-sex marriage that voters approved in 2005. This is the latest maneuver in an unfortunate campaign to redefine marriage as a legal endorsement of individual lifestyles rather than as a sacred and beneficial social institution between one man and one woman. This campaign totally ignores the rights of children to know their father’s love and their mother’s love.

        Pope Francis wrote a letter to families asking them to pray for the next Synod of Bishops, which will be celebrated in the Vatican in October, and the theme of which will be “The pastoral challenges of the family in the context of evangelization.” The letter, dated Feb. 2, Feast of the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, is published in full here...

        These insights from Pope Francis are inspired by the words of Saint Paul: “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that by his poverty you might become rich.”

        Pope Francis on Wednesday afternoon met with a group of about 500 young people from the Diocese of Piacenza-Bobbio in St. Peter’s Basilica. The youth are on a pilgrimage which is part of their diocesan celebration of the Year of Faith.
