Vatican City, Jan 7, 2016 / 10:01 am (CNA/EWTN News).- One year after the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris that left 12 dead, the Vatican daily newspaper has condemned the French satirical paper’s anniversary cover which depicts God as an armed terrorist.The illustration on the paper’s front cover “is insulting toward faithful of all religions,” Anouar Kbibech, President of the Conseil français du culte musulman said in a Jan. 7 article in the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano.“It is a caricature which is not at all helpful at a time when we need to stand by each other.”On Jan.7, 2015, exactly one year ago, armed Muslim extremists stormed the Paris headquarters of French newspaper Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people. They claimed the attacks avenged the cartoons printed in the publication that depicted offensive images of the Prophet Mohammed.Hebdo’s cover for the one-year-anniversary of the tragedy uses Christian iconography t...
New York City, N.Y., Jan 7, 2016 / 07:01 am (CNA).- It’s not hard to think of a myriad of reasons why people today might be afraid.Terrorists at home and abroad choose seemingly random cultural and civil events at which to gun down the innocent and incite fear in the rest of the world. Economic instability and political uncertainty have brought the United States to a point where presidential candidates are campaigning on the fears of their constituents.But fear is not a new human emotion, it is one that has been experienced throughout history.That’s why the New York Encounter, a cultural event hosted by the Communion and Liberation movement, will aim to explore the universal feelings of fear and desire, and whether fear can be overcome for a greater good.“We long to sail on the sea of life and yet we are afraid of leaving our safe harbor,” the event’s introduction reads. “What is the final word on man’s desire? Is there an attraction capable...
(Vatican Radio) Relics associated with St Gregory the Great and St Augustine of Canterbury will be brought together in Canterbury Cathedral next week as Anglican leaders meet for an encounter concerning the future of the worldwide Communion.Part of a precious pastoral staff from the Rome Church of San Gregorio al Celio is being shipped across to the UK on Friday, where it will be on display, alongside a rare 6th century book of the Gospels given by Pope Gregory to St Augustine as he set off on his mission to take the Christian faith to England. The manuscript is the oldest surviving Latin illustrated Gospel book and one of the most ancient European books in existence.The idea of loaning the relic, just ahead of the annual week of prayer for Christian Unity, was the brainchild of Australian Fr Robert McCulloch,  a longtime missionary in Pakistan who currently serves as Procurator General of the Society of St Columban here in Rome. Fr Robert, together with Rev Marcus Walker, as...
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis warned against false spirituality and worldliness saying many people appear to be spiritual but live in a way that is totally detached from the presence or needs of others. He stressed that works of mercy are at the heart of our faith in God and the visible sign of that faith. The Pope was speaking at his first Mass at the Santa Marta residence since the Christmas break. The cue for the Pope’s homily came from the first letter of John where the Apostle writes of remaining in the Lord. The Pope explained that a Christian is somebody who remains in God, who has the Holy Spirit and who is guided by Him.  Noting that John warned against Antichrists, Pope Francis said not every spirit is to be trusted and it's necessary to test them to see whether they are from God.  He said to do this we need to discern if we follow the spirit of God.  And this is the daily rule of life that John teaches us."But what does it mean to "...
Christian leaders ask government to provide protection against Hindu  hardliners who continue to threaten the community in eastern Indian Odisha  state that has witnessed major anti-Christian violence. Using a strike that called for tribal rights as a pretext, the mobs blocked roads on Christmas morning with logs and stones in several villages to ensure that villagers were unable to get any help during an attack. Although police later cleared the roads, "Christmas was celebrated in  fear and sadness. Father Santosh Digal from Cuttuck-Bhubaneswar Archdiocese said the roadblocks always create panic among local Christians because of past experiences.Christian leader Amir Nayak said mobs have been blocking roads in the tribal-dominated district that witnessed several instances of violence against Christians, the worst being four-months of violence that broke out in September 2008. Rampaging Hindu mobs that month burned down Christian houses, convents and ...
The Church of Our Lady of Bandel or simply Bandel Church, is the oldest and most famous Catholic Marian shrine in eastern India.  Some 50 kms from Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal state, the historic monastery on the river Hooghly was built by Portuguese traders in 1599 and entrusted to small group of Augustinian Friars.  Later a church was built with the statue of Our Lady of the Rosary, which now is on the balcony of Bandel Church, revered as Our Lady of Happy Voyage.  Bandel Church came under the charge of the Salesians of Don Bosco in 1928.  Archbishop Thomas D’Souza of Calcutta has designated Bandel Church as a special Jubilee of Mercy Church during the current Jubilee of Mercy, which Pope Francis officially inaugurated for the worldwide Catholic Church by opening the Holy Door of Mercy of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome on Dec. 8.  Since June 2015, Indian Salesian Fr.
