BURLINGTON, Vt. (EWTN News/CNA) — With the guidance of Vermont Catholic Charities, the Church in the state is assessing the extent of the storm’s devastation to determine the particular needs of the people, the Diocese of Burlington said on Aug. 30.

Irene dropped up to 11 inches of rain on Vermont over the weekend and caused normally small mountain streams to flood. The floodwaters smashed buildings and ripped homes from their foundations, surprising many.

As of Aug. 30, the death toll for Hurricane Irene stood at 42 people, and of that number, at least three were from Vermont. The flooding caused by Irene has also isolated people, closing 260 roads and 30 highway bridges.

Addressing Former Students, Pope Apologized for 'Cradle Catholics' Not Sharing the Faith (1831)

Benedict's summer school focused on the New Evangelization.

CASTEL GANDOLFO (EWTN News/CNA) — Pope Benedict XVI has asked forgiveness on behalf of generations of “cradle Catholics” who have failed to transmit the faith to others.

“We who have known God since we were young must ask forgiveness,” said Pope Benedict to a gathering of his former students at the papal summer residence of Castel Gandolfo, south of Rome, on Aug. 28.

The Pope said an apology is due because “we bring people so little of the light of his face, because from us comes so little certainty that he exists, that he is there, and that he is the Great One that everyone is waiting for.”

The Pope’s comments were made at a Mass to conclude the annual meeting of his Schülerkreis...READ MORE
