NEWSMAKER INTERVIEW: Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl, a longtime advocate for victims of pedophile priests, took aim this week at a recent U.N. commission report on the Catholic Church's child sex abuse scandal, saying it failed to recognize the progress the church has made in the past decade.
A standing-room-only crowd joined Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl, archbishop of Washington, in celebrating Easter Mass, where he explained how Pope Francis had the honor of leading the 2,000-year-old tradition for 1.2 billion Catholics around the world.
With the election of Argentine Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as supreme pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church, there seems to have been no shortage of people — Catholic and non-Catholic — offering the new Pope Francis advice. Much, if not most, of that advice has been theological, suggesting a wide range of changes in Church doctrine and rules.
The archbishop of Washington is one of 118 men who will be locked inside a chapel in Vatican City in the coming weeks to decide the new leader of the Roman Catholic Church. But he's most looking forward to seeing the art.
As D.C. resident Orlando Olmo looked around the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Tuesday, he stopped to take in the scene.
It was a deceivingly simple question. "What does 'Alleluia' mean?"
The archbishop of Washington encouraged Catholics this Christmas to renew their faith and remain mindful of God's presence in their lives.
The archbishop of Washington urged Catholics on Easter Sunday to boldly rejuvenate their faith and share it with others.
A new effort by the nation's Catholic bishops to protect marriage got plaudits recently from several prelates, including Washington Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl.
Catholics eager for the arrival next month of Pope Benedict XVI helped create overflow crowds at Easter Sunday services across the region.
Almost a year into his job as the spiritual leader of the Washington area's 560,000 Catholics, Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl has set a personal agenda and style that are worlds apart from those of his more flamboyant predecessor.
The U.S. poverty level is an entirely different standard than those of other nations, he said.
"I can say with total conviction that it was the Holy Spirit that chose, guided the election of Pope Francis," Cardinal Wuerl said. "You go into the conclave, there are no nominations, no candidates, no speeches, no talking. You simply pray and vote, and out of that came this extraordinary pope."
