VATICAN CITY — The Vatican secretary of state told the Synod of Bishops on the New Evangelization that the planned peace mission to Syria will still happen but has been postponed following flare-ups in violence.

“Given the gravity of the situation, the visit will be postponed, probably until after the conclusion of the synod, and the composition of the delegation will be modified, also due to other commitments on the part of its members,” Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone said Oct. 23 at the synod.

Cardinal Bertone originally announced the papal delegation at an Oct. 16 session of the synod. It was scheduled to embark this week, ahead of the synod's conclusion on Oct. 28.

WASHINGTON — The Congregation for Divine Worship has approved the celebration of Blessed John Paul II’s feast day in the dioceses of the United States, after setting the feast day for Oct. 22.

The congregation was petitioned for permission by the U.S. bishops’ conference following their November 2011 meeting.

Blessed John Paul II’s feast day is observed as an optional memorial in the dioceses of the United States. His office includes the opening prayer at Mass and the second reading in the Office of Readings, which is part of the Liturgy of the Hours. Additional texts for the Liturgy of the Hours should be taken from the texts common to all pastors who are celebrated liturgically.

WASHINGTON — Earlier his month, Angela McCaskill, the chief diversity officer for Gallaudet University, was placed on administrative leave after her signature was spotted on a petition to put a same-sex “marriage” referendum — known as Question 6 — on the Maryland ballot this November.

The referendum, which asks voters to decide Yes or No to legalize same-sex “marriage,” is viewed as a challenge to a state law passed last spring that made same-sex “marriage” legal in Maryland.

Alan Hurwitz, the president of the Washington-based university for the deaf, announced on Oct. 10 that he had removed the administrator because “Dr. McCaskill has participated in a legislative initiative that...READ MORE

The Nigerian cardinal, who served as president of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue from 1985-2002 and as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments from 2002 until his retirement in 2008, discussed the Council's highlights, the problems that followed it and his hopes for the Year of Faith.
