Buenos Aires, Argentina, Jun 4, 2016 / 05:11 am (CNA).- What began with glowing rosaries and the rediscovery of a statue of the Virgin Mary in Argentina has now been approved by the local bishop as a series of apparitions that are “of supernational origin” and worthy of belief.And the designation is deeply significant, recognizing the messages of Our Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolas, which exhort peace and give dire warnings, one miracle researcher says.Bishop Hector Cardelli of San Nicolas in Argentina’s Buenos Aires province made the announcement May 22 at the conclusion of a Mass during the well-attended pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary of San Nicolas.The bishop has investigated the contents of the apparitions through 1990.“(I)n my twelfth year of pastoring San Nicolas and, having followed with faith and responsibility the Marian events that I have known about since the very beginning, I have reached the decision to recognize them for my...
(Vatican Radio) In a new Apostolic Letter, issued motu proprio, Pope Francis has established new norms providing for the removal of Bishops (or those equivalent to them in Canon Law) from their offices in cases where they have “through negligance, committed or omitted acts that have caused grave harm to others, either with regard to physical persons, or with regard to the community itself.”The Apostolic Letter “Come una madre amorevole” (As a Loving Mother) also clarifies that, with regard “to abuse of minors or vulnerable adults, it is sufficient that the lack of diligence be grave.”The full text of the Apostolic Letter, in Italian, can be found here.In a note explaining the new procedures, the Director of the Holy See Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, said, “The Apostolic Letter insists on the importance of vigilant care for the protection of minors and vulnerable adults, calling for a ‘particular diligence.” T...
(Vatican Radio) On Saturday Pope Francis met with National Directors of the Pontifical Missionary Societies and those who work with the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples.The encounter took place in the context of the one hundredth anniversary of the foundation of the Pontifical Missionary Union (PMU), which was inspired by Blessed Paolo Manna, a missionary priest of the Pontifical Institute for the Foreign Missions. In his address to the group, Pope Francis said that, “through the intuition of Blessed Paolo Manna and the mediation of the Apostolic See, the Holy Spirit has led the Church to have an every understanding of her own missionary nature, later brought to maturation by the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council.”Blessed Paolo Manna emphasized the importance of forming Bishops and Priests, and through them, the laity, for the missions. But, the Pope insisted, the emphasis on the formation of clergy does not mean “reducing the PMU to a simply cleric...

As I have loved you, so you also should love one another”. Jesus Himself is this &lsqu...
One million people from Uganda and beyond gathered on Friday 3 June to celebrate Martyrs Day at the Namugongo Shrine in Uganda.Given the immense importance that the celebration of the Solemnity of the Uganda Martyrs holds for the people of Uganda and beyond, the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of Sacraments, in the Vatican, gave the Ugandan Church approval to transfer the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus from Friday 3 June 2016 to Friday 10 June 2016.Uganda’s New Vision daily newspaper reports that the main celebrant, Bishop Joseph Anthony Ziwa of Kiyinda Mityana Diocese called upon the Faithful to emulate the Uganda Martyrs by sticking to the truth.
