Florence, Italy, May 8, 2016 / 05:27 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece, Adoration of the Magi, will soon be undergoing testing that could help digitally reconstruct the artist’s face and offer clues about his life and health.According to the U.K. outlet Sky News, researchers with California’s J Craig Venter Institute, the pioneer behind human genome sequencing, will be searching for hairs and flakes of skin on Da Vinci’s paintings and notebooks.Genetic analysis will be performed, and DNA will be compared to Da Vinci’s known living relatives, and that taken from his parents’ graves.Scientists hope to determine the eye color, hair color, skin tone, and face shape of the Renaissance master. These details could add to the evidence in existence about his appearance. Health information could also be discovered.Ultimately, Fox News reported, the hope is to evaluate the unproven claim of whether Da Vinci is actually buried in a chapel of ...
(Vatican Radio) The Prefect of the recently created Secretariat for Communications at the Vatican, Msgr. Dario Edoardo Viganò, has written a commentary on Pope Francis’ Message for the 50th World Communications Day, which is published on intermirifica.net – the website of the Global Catholic Media Network, which has a specially dedicated web space packed with resources for the annual recurrence.Focused on communication as a sacred trust and a Gospel duty, the commentary, titled, “Called to remove our sandals” recalls the episode in the Book of Exodus (3:5) in which God speaks to Moses to tell him that he is on holy ground – i.e. in God’s very presence, as God speaks to him. 
(Vatican Radio) Sunday is the 50th World Day for Social Communications , an annual recurrence begun by Bl. Paul VI in the wake of the II Vatican Council as a way of setting in relief the importance the Council Fathers put on recovering the genius of the Church for proclaiming the Gospel, especially in a world ever more signed by the spread and growth of communications technology and ever more starved for truth.Pope Francis’ Message for the 50th World Communications Day focuses on the need to foster fruitful human encounters by communicating with mercy. “In a broken, fragmented and polarized world,” writes Pope Francis, “to communicate with mercy means to help create a healthy, free and fraternal closeness between the children of God and all our brothers and sisters in the one human family.”You can find out more about the the 50th World Communications Day by visiting the dedicated website space created by the new Secretariat for Communication at this l...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis used his remarks to the faithful at Sunday’s Regina coeli to mark the 50th annual recurrence of World Communications Day, recalling the fundamental mission of the Church to proclaim the Good News of Christ’s victory over death, and the duty of all the baptized faithful of every age and in every state of life within the Church to make themselves protagonists of that mission.“The [II Vatican] Council Fathers,” he said, drawing on his Message for the occasion, published earlier this year, “reflecting on the Church in the contemporary world, understood the crucial importance of communications, which ‘are capable of building bridges among persons, families, social groups, and peoples – and this both in physical and in digital environments.’”The Holy Father went on to say, “I offer cordial greetings to everyone working the field of communications, and I hope that our way of communicating in the Chur...
