VATICAN CITY (EWTN News/CNA) —The Vatican will celebrate Pope Benedict’s 60th anniversary of priestly ordination with an exhibition featuring 60 artists from around the world.

Pope Benedict was ordained to the priesthood, along with his brother Georg, in the Bavarian town of Freising on June 29, 1951.

Details of the anniversary exhibition entitled “The Splendor of Truth, the Beauty of Love” were unveiled in Rome June 17.

“We wanted to think of a very fluid and generic theme closely connected to the papacy of Benedict XVI — on the one hand truth and on the other charity,” explained the head of the Pontifical Council for Culture, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi.

“It’s almost like a card of...READ MORE

Archbishop Fisichella Discusses the Council for the New Evangelization (2469)

– Wikipedia

On the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul last year, Pope Benedict XVI made a surprise announcement: the creation of a new Vatican office dedicated entirely to promoting the New Evangelization.

The focus of the new pontifical council is on those countries, located primarily in the West, where secularism has taken hold. In May, the new department began to take shape with the appointment of a team of consultors and a secretary and under secretary.

The Holy Father has asked Archbishop Rino Fisichella to run the council. He spoke with Rome correspondent Edward Pentin in May about the aims and mission of the new council — the first completely new department a pope has created since Blessed John...READ MORE

WASHINGTON (CNA) — A new video from the U.S. bishops’ conference gives married couples’ reflections on marriage issues, the place of children and the complementary nature of the union of a man and a woman. Openness to children, it says, has a “major impact” on the Catholic view towards proposals to redefine marriage.

Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland, Calif., chair of the Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, announced the new video, Made for Life, during his report to the U.S. bishops at their June 2011 meeting in Seattle.

“Our culture is one that often forgets the sacred gift of the child, and, in so doing, it also fails to recognize the vital importance of a...READ MORE
