US National Collection Helps Religious Orders Care for Their Elderly Members

The 33rd annual Retirement Fund for Religious collection will be held in most U.S. Catholic parishes from December 12-13. Coordinated by the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO) at the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), the appeal assists hundreds of religious order communities in providing for the ongoing needs of their aging Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests.

The U.S. bishops initiated the collection in 1988 to address the significant lack of retirement funding among U.S. religious orders. Distinct from retired priest collections held in respective dioceses for the care of retired diocesan priests, this annual collection benefits eligible religious orders to help underwrite retirement and health-care expenses for nearly 30,000 elderly religious.

The 2019 appeal raised $26.2 million, and this past June, the NRRO distributed $25 million in financial assistance to 341 religious communities across the nation. The beneficiary religious order communities combine this funding with their own income and savings to help furnish day-to-day necessities, including medications and nursing care, and the distributions may be applied toward immediate retirement needs or invested for future eldercare expenses.

Inter-Religious Dialogue: ‘Tolerance Isn’t Enough,’ says Monsignor Jurkovic

In the matter of religious tolerance, “simple tolerance isn’t enough!” said Monsignor Ivan Jurkovic, the Holy See’s Permanent Observer at the United Nations in Geneva, during a meeting in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, on November 22, 2020. “It’s about seeking mutual enrichment,” he explained.

Invited by Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Issa, Secretary-General of the World Muslim League, the Archbishop took part in the presentation of the book “The Promotion of the Inter-Cultural and Inter-Religious Dialogue as Instrument for Peace and Fraternity.”

In his intervention, pointing out “the growing tendencies to egoism and to individualism,” he stressed that fraternity “is essential.” In fact, the great problem today stems from the fact that “differences are often experienced in terms of conflict.”  However, “the recognition of a mutual fraternity can change this perspective, it can reverse conflicts.”

Asia Bibi Backs Campaign to Free Those Jailed for Faith

Asia Bibi – Pakistan’s first woman to be sentenced to death for blasphemy – has thrown her weight behind a Catholic charity’s campaign calling for the release of those unjustly imprisoned because of their faith.

Bibi, a Catholic who spent almost a decade in prison before her conviction was overturned, is backing Aid to the Church in Need (ACN)’s campaign for #RedWednesday, which took place on November 25.

This year’s campaign calls for Christians unfairly held against their will to be set free.
