Catholics to lawmakers: ‘Don’t shred safety net’ for state’s poor

Prayers for protection
Face masks are seen on a man and a statue of St. Jude, patron of desperate situations, during a prayer service outside a church in Mexico City April 28. Masses, canceled in the Mexico City Archdiocese since April 26 because of an outbreak of the H1N1 virus, were to resume May 10.
     Father Dan Danielson, administrator in the Oakland Diocese, sent a letter to pastors April 30 urging them to follow “common sense guidelines” during liturgical celebrations. These include asking parishioners to stay home if they are ill and reminding all ministers of Communion, including priests, to sanitize their hands before distributing the host.

The Diocese of Oakland's fourth bishop, Salvatore Cordileone, knocks three times on the closed doors of the cathedral to begin the May 5 installation ritual, attended by more than 1,300 people.
