Defending Life with Love

July 3, 2024 at 5:26 p.m.


The image of newborn twins that graces the cover of The Monitor Magazine’s July issue tells one of the joyful stories coming out of the tumultuous two years since the U.S Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade. With abortion rates rising and national support for legalized abortion growing, this month’s IN FOCUS offers a post-Dobbs progress report and highlights the many ways that the Church and other leaders continue to advocate for and support both the mother-to-be and her baby in the womb.


Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., writes about the upcoming World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly, encouraging readers to use the day established in 2021 by Pope Francis to reach out to the elderly and infirm in their families and communities, letting them know they are not alone.  The Bishop also announces the annual diocesan collection for Retired, Elderly and Infirm Priests Fund set for July 27 and 28 at all Masses.


As Catholics across the country are preparing for the National Eucharistic Congress later this month in Indianapolis, look for special content on what we can expect for this historic gathering in the life of the modern Church.


Other coverage you won’t want to miss:

DIOCESE: Cyclists help fight poverty through CCHD’s cross-Diocese bike ride; Francis House of Prayer marks 50 years; Discernment BBQ welcomes young men considering vocations; The Monitor Magazine garners recognition from Catholic Media Association

YOUNG CATHOLICS: Mission: Jersey summer service opportunities; St. Timothy Award winners announced; Theology on Tap event welcomes Catholic comedic actor

LOCAL: Glorious Choir Convention draws musicians to Middletown; Father James Smith installed as pastor of St. Isaac Jogues, Marlton; Catholic Charities campaign to raise awareness; Father Brian Butch honored by local Knights of Columbus council
