Declaración Del Obispo Joseph V. Brennan, D.D. En Colaboración Con El Derecho A La Vida De California Central (Right To Life Of Central California)

Como obispo y pastor de la diócesis, debo hacer eco y amplificar la voz profética de la Iglesia al oponerme a estos graves ataques a la dignidad humana. San Pablo II afirmó que ninguna sociedad civilizada puede permitir, o ningún católico puede apoyar el derecho legal al aborto. “Reivindicar el derecho al aborto, al infanticidio, a la eutanasia, y reconocerlo legalmente, significa atribuir a la libertad humana un significado perverso e inicuo: el de un poder absoluto sobre los demás y contra los demás.” La eterna enseñanza de este gran santo ha sido repetida por nuestro actual Santo Padre, Papa Francisco. more

Statement from the Most Reverend Joseph V. Brennan, D.D. in Collaboration With Right to Life of Central California

As the bishop and shepherd of this Diocese, I must echo and amplify the prophetic voice of the Church in opposing these grave attacks on human dignity. St. John Paul II affirmed that no civilized society can justly allow, nor any Catholic support, a legal right to abortion. “To claim the right to abortion, infanticide and euthanasia, and to recognize that right in law, means to attribute to human freedom a perverse and evil significance: that of an absolute power over others and against others.”1 The timeless teaching of this great saint has been echoed repeatedly by our current Holy Father, Pope Francis. more

California Bishops Speak Out Against Desecration of St. Serra Statue

We respect the pain felt by our native brothers and sisters and their anger at the historical abuses committed against their ancestors, both during the Mission Period and especially afterward. But we need to again remind our fellow Californians, St. Junípero Serra had nothing to do with these abuses. The true historical record is clear on this point. St. Junípero loved and bravely defended the native peoples, even writing a bill of rights to protect them from the ambitions of the Spanish colonizers. more

California Catholic Conference Issues Statement on Removal of St. Serra Statues in the State

During the past week the specific question of removing statues of political, military and cultural leaders of the past has gained momentum. If this process is to be truly effective as a remedy for racism, it must discern carefully the entire contribution that the historical figure in question made to American life, especially in advancing the rights of marginalized peoples. more

California bishops hold a “virtual” Stations of the Cross to draw attention to the sin of racism

Bishops from throughout the state of California released a video today reenacting the Stations of the Cross to draw attention to the sin of racism and ask God’s help in eliminating it. It is also intended to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the tragic killings at Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, and the Juneteenth holiday this Friday, celebrating the end of slavery in the United States. “People today suffer unjustly simply because of the color of their skin or their national origin,” says Bishop Robert McElroy, leader of the Diocese of San Diego and president of the California Catholic Conference. “Let us acknowledge the sin of racism and work to combat it in our social structures, our institutions and our hearts.” more
