WARWICK – Tucked behind Sts. Rose and Clement church in a large, grassy field is a fenced-in slice of gardening paradise. more

In his column on celibacy in the September 27 issue, Fr. Joseph Lennon asks : Does today’s mutual exclusiveness of matrimony and holy orders cripple the Church’s ability to love? A letter to the editor argues that it does. I propose that there is a complimentarity between marriage and celibacy which enables the Church to love fully. more
LINCOLN – The parishioners of St. Basil the Great Parish know that their church is much more than a building. more
May I take this moment to thank you for touching our lives for so many decades and most especially, thank you for my Mom, Mary E. Burns? She died on March 27, 2007, and raised us reading The Providence Visitor. She would have been thrilled to see the new name and meet our new Bishop, not only in person, but also in his wonderfully written and engaging columns. (She loved all of our bishops – Bishop McVinney, Bishop Gelineau, Bishop Angell, Bishop Mc Manus, Bishop Mulvee — and of course was thrilled when Bishop Thomas J. Tobin was installed.) more
I just finished reading Father Kiley's column regarding Christianity's enemy (“Secularism, not other religions, is Christianity’s true enemy,” RI?Catholic, Oct. 11, 2007.)

Two Blackstone Valley men were recently featured on the front page of the local press celebrating their same-sex nuptials formalized in nearby Massachusetts. Some of their justification for entering into the legal novelty of a same-sex union focused on the little harm that their lifestyle imposed on their neighbors and their community. They go off to work and eat at nearby restaurants and conduct much of their lives as any other couple might. “What fault is there in that?” they might suggest. And, of course, on an individual basis, there probably is very little mischief that can be laid at their doorstep. more
Truth in advertising has long been practiced by businesses trying to sell themselves and their wares to the public. The principle can also be applied to colleges and universities in their recruitment of prospective students, and should certainly be a practice of those institutions that identify themselves as Catholic. more
When did you start thinking about being a priest? I first thought about being a priest during the preparation for my Confirmation. more
