Congratulations to Fr. Paul J. Rosing on his 45th Anniversary of Ordination on June 9. Fr. Rosing has served at St. Paul in Akron, Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Barberton, St. Joseph in Cuyahoga Falls, St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception in Wooster, Annunciation (now Visitation of Mary) in Akron and is currently the Pastor of Holy Family Parish in Stow. Father has also faithfully served on many Diocesan and civic boards and committees. Please keep Fr. Rosing in your prayers as he celebrates the gift of the priesthood, remembers those he has ministered to and with these last 45 years and hopes of fruitful service as a priest of Jesus Christ in the years ahead.
Fort Lauderdale, FL—”At its core, asylum is an instrument to preserve the right to life. The Attorney General’s recent decision elicits deep concern because it potentially strips asylum from many women who lack adequate protection. These vulnerable women will now face return to the extreme dangers of domestic violence in their home country. This decision negates decades of precedents that have provided protection to women fleeing domestic violence. Unless overturned, the decision will erode the capacity of asylum to save lives, particularly in cases that involve asylum seekers who are persecuted by private actors. We urge courts and policy makers to respect and enhance, not erode, the potential of our asylum system to preserve and protect the right to life.
Additionally, I join Bishop Joe Vásquez, Chairman of USCCB’s Committee on Migration, in condemning the continued use of family separation at the U.S./Mexico border as an implementation of the Administration’s zero tolerance policy. Our government has the discretion in our laws to ensure that young children are not separated from their parents and exposed to irreparable harm and trauma. Families are the foundational element of our society and they must be able to stay together. While protecting our borders is important, we can and must do better as a government, and as a society, to find other ways to ensure that safety. Separating babies from their mothers is not the answer and is immoral.”
