WASHINGTON — Archeologists believe they may have discovered the place where Jesus’ trial before Pontius Pilate took place in Jerusalem.

In an effort to expand the Tower of David Museum, archeologists began excavating an adjacent, abandoned prison building, The Washington Post reports. As they stripped away layers of the prison floor, they realized they were likely uncovering a missing link in the puzzle of the Holy Land’s history.

Although the discovery began over a decade ago, the site is just now being opened to the public for the millions of religious pilgrims who flock to the area every year.

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis’s choice of 20 new cardinals announced on Sunday is consistent with the Holy Father’s wish to go out to the peripheries, but it also ran contrary to some expectations.

Speaking to pilgrims at the end of the Jan. 4 Angelus in St. Peter’s Square, Francis said that, on Feb. 14, he will have the “joy of holding” his second cardinal-making consistory, which manifests “the indissoluble links between the Church of Rome and the particular Churches present in the world.”

The College of Cardinals advises the Holy Father in the governance of the Church and elects the next pope, should he die or resign. The majority of the newly named cardinals come from the developing...READ MORE

KHARKIV, Ukraine — For Bishop Stanislav Shyrokoradiuk of Kharkiv-Zaporizha, the situation in Eastern Ukraine is dramatic: His Roman Catholic diocese encompasses almost the entire eastern part of Ukraine, including areas that are no longer under the control of the government in Kiev.

More than 80 people have already died of it in Luhansk and Donetsk,” emphasized Bishop Shyrokoradiuk, who is also the director of Caritas Ukraine, during a talk with employees of the international Catholic pastoral charity Aid to the Church in Need.

The Diocese of Kharkiv-Zaporizha is one of six Roman Catholic dioceses in Ukraine. Most of the...READ MORE

Mario Cuomo delivers his speech about Catholic politicians and abortion at the University of Notre Dame on Sept. 13, 1984.

– newsday.com

NEW YORK — Mario Cuomo, the three-time governor of New York who sought to justify Catholic lawmakers’ tolerance of abortion rights, died on Jan. 1; he was 82.

A self-identified Catholic who quoted Thomas Aquinas, challenged Ronald Reagan’s optimistic vision of economic opportunity in America and cited Church moral doctrine as he vetoed legislation enacting the death penalty, Cuomo’s policy positions and rhetoric often resonated with his fellow believers.

Cuomo served as the governor of New York from 1983 to 1995 and emerged as the standard-bearer of his party’s liberal wing. But he resisted efforts to make him a candidate for president and also turned down President Bill Clinton’s...READ MORE
