In our CATHOLIC PewPOINT today, we tackle the most recent decision by the Supreme Court and lament yet another nail in America's coffin for the decline began when the Justices took God out of the schools.

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga

On Tuesday we commemorate the 409th anniversary of the death of the holy Jesuit seminarian Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, who died at the age of 23. He had contracted the plague before he could be ordained while treating the sick of Rome. Before passing onto his Heavenly reward, he was given the last rites by Saint Robert Bellarmine. Aloysius was canonized by Pope Benedict XIII in 1726 and declared patron of Catholic youth by Pope Pius XI.

On Trinity Sunday the Holy Father marks the "heart of Jubilee Year" with Eucharistic Congress. In his Angelus Address he entreats all to emulate the Blessed Virgin Mary in our actions as we approach the Solemnity of Corpus Christi
His Holiness reads his Wednesday Message    In his first official Angelus Address of the summer months in St. Peter's Square on Trinity Sunday, Pope John Paul II shared with all the significance of this week with the events and ceremonies of the 47th International Eucharistic Congress being held in Rome this week in the natural transition from Trinitarian to Eucharistic. Amidst all of this the Pope shows how the Blessed Virgin Mary was in unison with the Divine Will in respect to her fiat to the Holy Trinity as the daughter of the Father, mother of the Son, and spouse of the Holy Spirit and how she continues to draw her children closer to her Divine Son present in the Holy Eucharist which is the focus for the upcoming Feast of Corpus Christi. For the full text of the Holy Father's Address, see THE VICAR OF CHRIST SPEAKS
