(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis invoked Saint Francis of Paola during his weekly General Audience on Wednesday. The Holy Father greeted devotees of the saint, who are marking the sixth centenary of his birth.Saint Francis of Paula was born in Calabria in 1416, and as a young man entered the Franciscan Order. Seeking a more austere spirituality, he later founded the Hermits of Saint Francis of Assisi, which was afterward renamed the Minim friars.After greeting the saint’s devotees, the Holy Father called on young people to “learn from Saint Francis of Paola that humility is a strength, not a weakness.”
(Vatican Radio) Later this week, The Sutton Chorale, a South London-based choir consisting of Christians from different denominations, will be performing at various locations around Rome and Florence.Under the baton of their director, Martin French, they will perform a repertoire of English sacred choral music in some of Rome’s great churches, including at Mass in St Peter’s Basilica, and a special ecumenical celebration of Evening Prayer to bid farewell to Her Majesty’s outgoing Ambassador to the Holy See, H.E. Nigel Baker, in the Oratorio di San Francesco Saverio del Caravita. However, their most poignant performance will be a concert of sacred music which will be held in the historic basilica of Sant’Eustachio on 29 May at 19.30, only a stone’s throw from the historic Pantheon.Few tourists to the basilica realize that it is not only a sanctuary of prayer, but also one of faith and charity-in-practise. At 1pm every day (except Sundays), the nav...

And we must learn this well: To ignore thepoor is to despise God!" the pope said May 18 during his weekly generalaudience.Thepope focused on the Gospel parable of the rich man and Lazarus and said thestory is a reminder of the "harsh reproach" that will come at thefinal judgment for those who ignore the needs of the poor.Lazarusrepresents both "the silent cry of the poor of all time and thecontradiction of a world in which vast wealth and resources are in the hands ofa few," the pope said. Byexcluding Lazarus, the pope said, the rich man "made himself thecenter of everything, closed in his world of luxury and waste."In theparable, the rich man has no name, he noted, while Lazarus' name --which means "God helps" -- is mentioned five times."Lazarus, lying at the door, is...

ShemitzBy Carol ZimmermannWASHINGTON (CNS) -- When Pope Francis accepted a proposal at theVatican May 12 to form a commission to study the possibility of women servingas deacons today, it generated plenty of buzz.The pope's agreementon the idea -- raised by members of the International Union of SuperiorsGeneral, the leadership group for superiors of women's orders -- wasinterpreted by some as a thumbs-up to women deacons and eventually womenpriests, which the Vatican spokesman was quick to rebut the next day.Pope Francis"did not say he intends to introduce a diaconal ordination forwomen," and he certainly did not speak about the ordination of womenpriests, said Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, the Vatican spokesman.But even a studyof women deacons -- suggested by women and approved by the pope -- carries prettyhefty weight, some are saying.Even the contextof the possibility of this commission is important, said Kathleen Sprows Cummings, directorof the Cu...
