Pope calls for Christian presence on social networking sites

Image via CrunchBase Vatican City, Jan 24, 2011 / 12:23 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Facebook, MySpace and Twitter should be used by Christians looking to bring "truth, proclamation and authenticity of life" to the web today, the Pope said in his message for the 45th World Day of Social Communications.

In his message released on Jan. 24, the Pope called for a greater Christian presence online in the midst of the "vast cultural transformation" caused by the digital age. New technologies, he said, are "giving birth to a new way learning and thinking, with unprecedented opportunities for establishing relationships and building fellowship."

If technologies are used with wisdom, he explained, "they can contribute to the satisfaction of the desire for meaning, truth and unity which remain the most profound aspirations of each human being."

Pope Benedict also warned about the dangers of falsifying one's online profile and creating a "parallel existence.&q…

First priests ordained to new Catholic Church structure for former Anglicans

First priests ordained to new Catholic Church structure for former Anglicans :: Catholic News Agency (CNA)London, England, Jan 15, 2011 / 01:05 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- An official jurisdiction for members of the Church of England opting for full communion with the Catholic Church was established just in time to receive its first three priests on Saturday.

On Jan. 15, the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith decreed the creation of "The Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham." The announcement of the establishment of the ordinariate, a special diocese-like structure, was announced during the Mass at London's Westminster Cathedral to ordain three former Anglican bishops to the Catholic priesthood.

The very name of the personal ordinariate denotes the Catholic-Anglican connection, both Churches have Marian Shrines in the English village of Walsingham. Blessed John Henry Newman, the most well-known Anglican to seek communion with the Catholic Church,…

Sign of the cross is reminder of the Trinity dwelling in us...

Vatican City, May 30, 2010 / 10:30 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The sign of the cross reminds us of the Trinity which resides in us, of God's name and of our commitment to the faith from the moment of baptism, said Pope Benedict before Sunday's Angelus. He also noted the essential role of the priest in bringing the “Spirit of Truth” to us. The first Sunday of ordinary time brought with it a return to the Angelus prayer from the traditional Regina Coeli prayer of the Easter season. With the arrival of "ordinary time," the Holy Father said, the Christian commitment should not decrease. Rather, "entered into the divine life through the sacraments, we are called daily to be open to the action of Grace, to progress in love towards God and neighbor." Turning to Trinity Sunday, which "recapitulates" God's revelation concerning the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Paschal mysteries, Pope Benedict said that despite the inadequacy of human thought and language t…

The Solemnity of the Epiphany in the East

Today in Eastern Orthodox churches, the emphasis at this feast is on the shining forth and revelation of Jesus Christ as the Messiah and second person of the Holy Trinity at the time of his baptism. Usually called the Feast of the Theophany, it is one of the great feasts of the liturgical year. "Theophany" comes from the Greek for "God shining forth."

Benedict XVI calls religious leaders to renew commitment to peace

Vatican City, Jan 1, 2011 / 01:28 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- The Pope invited religious leaders from around the world to Assisi, Italy to renew their commitment to peace. Pope Benedict announced plans for the peace summit in his words before the Angelus on Jan. 1. The October gathering will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the first World Day of Prayer for Peace, reported Vatican Radio. The Pope's announcement came shortly after suicide bombers in Egypt killed 21 Coptic Christians leaving Mass on Jan. 1. In addition to calling for the October meeting, Benedict XVI asked Catholics to pray “for peace throughout the world.” “I invite all of you to join in heartfelt prayer to Christ the Prince of Peace for an end to violence and conflict wherever they are found.” The Pontiff then prayed that those gathered receive “God’s abundant blessings” in 2011.
