VATICAN CITY — In his Sunday Angelus message March 9, Pope Francis stressed the importance of resisting temptations by finding refuge in God’s word.

For this reason, Jesus, rather than dialoguing like Eve did, chooses to take refuge in the word of God and responds with the force of this word.”

“Let us remind ourselves of this in moments of temptation, in our own temptations: no discussions with...READ MORE

Bishop Borys Gudziak, 53, is eparch of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Eparchy of Paris, a diocesan bishop serving Ukrainian Catholics in five European countries.

In 2012, he was ordained a bishop, and, today, he resides in Paris. He remains president of UCU, however, and still regularly travels to the Ukraine.

CHICAGO — Cardinal Francis George of Chicago told his archdiocese that Lent finds him in “poor health,” as cancer in his right kidney that was dormant for over a year is “showing signs of new activity.”

“While I am not experiencing symptoms of cancer at this time, this is a difficult form of the disease, and it will most probably eventually be the cause of my death,” he wrote in his most recent column for the Catholic New World archdiocesan paper.

Cardinal George said that after “many tests, scans, biopsies and other inconveniences,” he was advised to enter into an aggressive round of chemotherapy, which will take place over the next two months.

The 77-year-old cardinal underwent a...READ MORE

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis will continue to have a number of pressing engagements during Lent, but next week he will participate, as is tradition, in the annual weeklong spiritual exercises with the heads of Vatican departments.

The retreat normally takes place in the Vatican, but, consistent with St. Ignatius’ Spiritual Exercises, this year it will take place far from familiar surroundings.

At 4pm on Sunday afternoon, after reciting the Angelus, the Holy Father and Curial heads will leave the Vatican by coach and embark on a 45-minute journey to Ariccia, a small, picturesque town in the Castelli Romani district, close to the papal summer residence of Castel Gandolfo.

The retreat itself...READ MORE
