More than 40 young people who walked across the U.S. for pro-life service, advocacy and witness held a rally at the U.S. Capitol on Saturday to mark the end of the 18th annual cross-country trek run by the group Crossroads.

“Even though the walks are over, we still need to continue on and let the Lord work, to continue that mission of transforming the culture of death into a culture of life,” Jim Nolan, Crossroads' national director, told EWTN News Aug. 13.

Walk participants began on the West Coast on May 19. They passed through 40 states, visiting hundreds of churches and standing outside of dozens of abortion businesses, where they prayed and offered pro-life counseling.

Last month, the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem revised a controversial text on Pope Pius XII used in its exhibition, changing it from an unfairly negative assessment of the wartime Pope and his record in saving the Jews, to one that includes a few arguments in his defense.

But the new text omitted sensational claims, originating from a former Romanian intelligence chief, that efforts to muddy Pius’s reputation began in Moscow very soon after World War II, and that the Soviets later led a campaign of disinformation — called “Operation Seat 12” — against the wartime Pope.

The claims were made in 2007 by General Ion Mihai Pacepa who once headed the Romanian intelligence service...READ MORE

Leonel “Leo” Manzano won an Olympic silver medal for the U.S. in the 1,500-meter race, after 44 years since the last victory by an American, to the delight of his fellow parishioners at St. Ignatius the Martyr in Austin, Texas.

Born in Mexico and raised in the U.S., at 5-feet tall, Manzano caught the attention of the media first for his height and also for his habit of blessing himself and praying before competing.

During the race on Aug. 7 at London's Olympic Stadium, he stayed in second-to-last place for the majority of the event. But in the last 200 meters, Manzano sprinted past the entire group to claim the silver in the race's fastest time ever for an American athlete.

Pope Benedict XVI's personal assistant, Paolo Gabriele, has been charged with theft amid suspicion that he leaked confidential papal documents to the press with the help of an accomplice.

Examining Judge Piero Bonnet announced Aug. 13 that the papal aid would be tried in a Vatican city state court on charges of “aggravated theft,” Vatican Radio reported. If found guilty, he could face six years in jail.

Claudio Sciarpelleti, a computer technician at the Vatican Secretariat of State, faces a lesser charge of “aiding and abetting” Gabriele.

In a 35-page report released Monday, Judge Bonnet said Gabriele initially denied involvement in the “Vatileaks” scandal, in which secret documents...READ MORE

Diocese of Peoria Files Suit Against HHS Mandate (2333)

Bishop Daniel Jenky said: 'As bishop of the Diocese of Peoria, I cannot remain silent while the right of Catholics to practice our faith is being so gravely threatened.'

The Diocese of Peoria, Ill., on Thursday filed a lawsuit against the Department of Health and Human Services mandate, charging that it requires an “intrusive government investigation” to determine whether the diocese is exempt from the controversial federal rule.

Bishop Daniel Jenky of Peoria believes the new federal lawsuit is necessary because of a lack of effort on the part of the federal government to correct the mandate’s flaws, the diocese said.

“I have an obligation to protect the Church’s ability to freely practice our religion,” he said Aug. 9. “As bishop of the Diocese of Peoria, I cannot remain silent while the right of Catholics to practice our faith is being so gravely...READ MORE

Pope Benedict: Jesus Reveals Himself as the Bread of Heaven (2293)

The Holy Father said to doubt the divinity of Christ means 'opposing God’s work' during his Aug. 12 angelus.

08/13/2012 Comments (20)

Pope Benedict XVI says that all Christians should reflect on how “hungry” they are to know and love Jesus Christ.

“We too must ask ourselves if we really feel this hunger, hunger for the word of God, hunger to know the real meaning of life,” he said in his Sunday Angelus remarks Aug. 12.

“Only those who are attracted by God the Father, who listen and allow themselves to be instructed by him, can believe in Jesus, encounter him and nourish themselves of him and find true life, the path of life, justice, truth and love.”

The Pope addressed pilgrims gathered within the courtyard of his summer residence at Castel Gandolfo, 20 miles south of Rome. He based his reflections upon the...READ MORE
