Bishop Golka to celebrate Mass for the repose of the soul of Pope Benedict XVI on Jan. 6

Mass will take place at 12:10 p.m. at St. Mary's Cathedral

COLORADO SPRINGS. Bishop James Golka will offer a Mass for the repose of the soul of Pope Benedict XVI on Friday, Jan. 6 at 12:10 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral, 22 W. Kiowa St., Colorado Springs, 80903. All are invited to attend. 

Pope Benedict XVI died the morning of Dec. 31 at Mater Ecclesiae Monastery in Vatican City. He was 95 years old and held the Catholic Church’s highest office from April 19, 2005, until his resignation on Feb. 28, 2013. 

“Pope Benedict XVI played a decisive role in the history of the Catholic Church through his vast scholarly writings, his contributions to Vatican II, his leadership of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and finally his eight-year reign as pope,” said Bishop Golka. “May he rest in peace. Well done, good and faithful servant.”

NEW YORK. Four and a half decades on from the bicentennial year in which it premiered, the “Rocky” franchise is still a cinematic gift that keeps on giving. Thus “Creed III” (PG-13, United Artists), the ninth film in the series, is a thinking-person’s sports drama that will appeal even to those with no particular interest in well-choreographed slugfests.

February and March are the months when we participate in the discipline of Lent. Fasting, praying, giving alms, confession, adoration — all good activities anytime — find even more purpose when we observe them in Lent. Though we are deep into Lent at this writing, there may be some ways that we can invest even more in our observances, and sometimes a good book can direct our thoughts.

Oh, the luck of the Irish! They say there are two kinds of people in the world: the Irish, and those who wish they were. But whatever our Catholic heritage, we all have gotten to experience a little St. Patrick, Emerald Isle magic, shamrocks, and corned beef (thanks to the blessed dispensation) on March 17.

"To prepare for worthy reception of this sacrament, the faithful should observe the fast required in their Church. (Cf. Code of Canon Law, canon 919) Bodily demeanor (gestures, clothing) ought to convey the respect, solemnity, and joy of this moment when Christ becomes our guest.” — Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 1387.
