By Cindy WoodenVATICAN CITY (CNS) -- When people do not want to say"yes" to God, they usually do not say "no," they just hidelike Adam and Eve did after they sinned, Pope Francis said."Today is the feast of 'yes,'" the pope saidduring his early morning Mass April 4, the transferred feast of theAnnunciation. The Latin-rite church usually celebrates the Angel Gabriel's annunciation toMary March 25, but transfers the feast when it occurs during Holy Week.A group of priests celebrating the 50th anniversary of theirordinations and a group of Vincentian Sisters who are called to renew theirvows each year joined Pope Francis for the Mass in the chapel of the DomusSanctae Marthae.Even after the sin of Adam and Eve, the pope said, God continuallyreached out to holy men and women -- from Abraham to Moses to the prophets --asking them to cooperate in his plan of salvation."Today the Gospel speaks to us of the end of that 'yes'chain and the beginning of another" with Mary's willingness to carr...
(Vatican Radio) The operation to ship illegal migrants from the Greek islands back to Turkey got underway in the early hours of Monday morning, with the first few score being put on boats.But, as correspondent John Carr reports from Athens, the operation, agreed on two weeks ago by the European Union and Turkey, promises to be long and difficult.  Many migrants are bitterly opposed to going back, and many Greeks believe that the deal is ultimately unenforceable.Listen:  Meanwhile, violence erupted on the island of Chios last night as riot police clashed with residents who tried to block the arrival of migrants at a holding camp. There is also growing unrest at the makeshift camp at Idomeni at the Greece-Macedonia border, where residents accuse migrants of breaking into food stores run by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees. They’re demanding that the government disperse the camp, if necessary by force.The migrants, on the other hand, claim to be re...
Acts 5: 27-32, 40-41b; Rev. 5: 11-14; John 21: 1-19Fiddler on the Roof is a musical by Sheldon Harnick which had 3000 Broadway performances. It is based on the book Tevye and his Daughters by Joseph Stein, set in Tsarist Russia in 1905. The story centers on Tevye, the father of five daughters who owned a milk business, and his attempts to maintain his family and Jewish religious traditions while outside influences encroach upon their lives. Finally he had to move out of his village because of the edict of the emperor Tsar who evicted the Jews from their village. There is a very tender and moving scene in the play, Fiddler on the Roof. Tevye and his wife Golda are being forced to move from their home in Russia. One day Tevye comes into the house and asks his wife, "Golda, do you love me?" "Do I what?" "Do you love me?" Golda looks at him and then responds: "Do I love you? With our daughters getting married and this trouble in the town, you're ...
Indonesian Catholics are engaged in an environmental programme in central Java to help repopulate a local river’s fish stock.   Some 1,000 Indonesian Catholics took part on Divine Mercy Sunday in an effort to spread 500,000 fertilized fish eggs into the Banjir Kanal Barat river in Semarang.   The programme called, "Church Cares for River" was jointly conducted by seven parishes in Semarang to help preserve the 9.2-kilometer-long river, said Natalis Utomo, the event organizer.  "The programme is a movement of repentance for ecological sins so as to remind all of us that our life is very supported by the womb of Mother Earth," he told UCANEWS.  Utomo said that the program was aimed at spurring an interest in environment for all local residents, not just Catholics.Jesuit Father Agustinus Sarwanto, an ecological expert and parish priest at St. Therese of the Child Jesus Parish in Bongsari, said that the river and the Jatibarang r...
Church leaders from across the Philippines have condemned Friday’s violence in drought-stricken southern Mindanao island between police and farmers demanding food relief.  Two farmers died and dozens were injured after security forces opened fire as they dispersed protesters along a highway in Kidapawan City, the capital of Cotabato Province.  Several rights groups have blamed the government for the tragedy, in which 40 policemen were also hurt.  Archbishop Socrates Villegas of Lingayen-Dagupan, president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said “a death is always tragic, even more when violent death visits God’s poor.”  “We pray for our farmers in Kidapawan. May those who died find peace and happiness in heaven,” While appealing to the protesters and the victims’ families to avoid vengeance, Arch. Villegas hoped the issue will be resolved immediately.  May their families not give in t...
(Vatican Radio)  The Pontifical Council Cor Unum, the papal charitable office,  will be organizing the distribution of funds raised in response to Pope Francis’ appeal for aid to the people of Ukraine.Listen to this report by Tracey McClure: The situation in the former Soviet state remains dramatic though the ongoing conflict between government forces and pro-Russia separatists has fallen off the collective radar. Calling it a “worn out land,” on Sunday, Pope Francis appealed for an end to the conflict amid reports of fresh fighting.  More than 9,000 people have been killed since clashes erupted in April 2014.  1.7 million people have been displaced - particularly in Crimea, annexed by Russia - and the eastern Donbass region. Implementation of a deal agreed in Minsk last year and a lull in the violence had raised hopes that the conflict could be resolved soon.Half a million people urgently need food and health authorities say more th...
