VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA) — On June 28, Pope Benedict XVI will launch the Vatican’s first multimedia news portal, which is also designed for mobile devices.

“We are trying to give everybody an opportunity to have Vatican news immediately in a modern and accessible way, using new technology,” said Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications, in an interview with EWTN News on June 27.

He explained that the Pope will have the privilege of giving the “first click” to take the site online, a reflection of the way Pope Pius XI inaugurated the transmission of Vatican Radio 80 years ago.

Albany, N.Y. (CNA) — A possible miraculous cure attributed to Catholic media pioneer Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C., could advance the beatification cause of the “Rosary Priest” known for his motto “The family that prays together, stays together.”

A tribunal based in the Diocese of Albany, N.Y., has investigated the alleged miracle and will forward its findings to Rome on June 28.

The details of the possible miracle cannot be shared at this point, explained Father John Phalen, C.S.C., president of Holy Cross Family Ministries. However, he did report that the case involves a man in his 60s who was admitted to the hospital with “life-threatening, multiple organ failure.”

WASHINGTON (EWTN News) — Legislative moves to strip Planned Parenthood of its funding are gaining traction across the U.S., with several states already enacting laws and several more drafting similar measures.

Lawmakers in Indiana, Kansas, North Carolina and Wisconsin have already voted to defund the nation’s largest abortion provider, while pro-life advocates in Tennessee, Texas, Oklahoma and Minnesota are pushing for the same legislation.

In Wisconsin, the state Senate voted on June 16 to keep provisions in the state budget, which revoked taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood and directed federal Title V family-planning dollars to public-health agencies. The provisions also...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — Friday night’s vote in the New York state Senate to legalize same-sex “marriage” adds new impetus for church-led efforts to defend the institution of marriage.

New York is now the sixth and largest state to approve homosexual “marriage,” fueling optimism among activists seeking to secure “marriage equality” in every state.

Meanwhile, a new representative of the U.S. bishops will bring the truth about marriage and family to key legislators on Capitol Hill.

Calling himself “the bishops’ marriage guy” — a tongue-in-cheek comment that sums up his role — Daniel Avila describes traditional marriage as “critical to human development.”

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (EWTN News) — Prominent speechwriter Bill McGurn delivered a call to pro-life action at the University of Notre Dame, saying the movement must speak the truth fearlessly and persevere in a spirit of love.

“So many of our fellow citizens have been wounded by what Pope John Paul II called the culture of death. To reach these people, to get to their hearts, we must bring our hearts where our tongues are far too eager to tread,” said McGurn, who was the chief speechwriter for former President George W. Bush.

His remarks came at the June 16 inauguration of the Vita Institute, established to educate students about the dignity of human life, especially during its earliest...READ MORE

Pope: 'Without the Eucharist, the Church Simply Does Not Exist' (2634)

Benedict XVI and Archbishop Gomez celebrated Corpus Christi Mass in Rome.

VATICAN CITY (CNA/EWTN News) — The Eucharist is the medicine which can heal our individualist society, Pope Benedict XVI said in his midday Angelus address on Corpus Christi Sunday.

“In an increasingly individualistic culture in which Western societies are immersed, and which is tending to spread throughout the world, the Eucharist is a kind of ‘antidote’ which operates in the minds and hearts of believers and is continually sowing in them the logic of communion, of service, of sharing: in other words, the logic of the Gospel,” said Pope Benedict to pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square on June 26.

Catholics believe that the bread and wine offered by Christ at the Last Supper literally became...READ MORE
