Allow the Year of Mercy to open and soften your heart

Before we know it the Year of Mercy will be upon us. “O, happy fault!”

Pope Francis strongly desires that this Extraordinary Holy Year be celebrated in all the dioceses of the world. He says the call is “to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father’s action” (Misericordiae Vultus, 3). The theme is “Merciful Like the Father,” taken from the Gospel of St. Luke (6:36).

Diocese of Duluth responds to court decision

The Diocese of Duluth made the following response available to media Nov. 4 regarding a recent court case:

The Diocese of Duluth does not dispute the claim of sexual abuse in the court case decided today. We have great sympathy for the victim, and we support his right and every victim’s right to seek justice. At the same time, it is hard for us to understand being held responsible for a religious order priest’s actions in 1978 that the Diocese of Duluth knew nothing about and could not have prevented. With this in mind, we will be considering all available options in response, including an appeal of today’s decision.
