While leading the Regina Coeli prayer, Pope Francis prayed for the thousands of victims who died in Nepal, after a 7.8 earthquake struck the country. An estimated 3,600 people lost their lives.

I pray for the victims, the wounded and all those who suffer because of this catastrophe. May they find the comfort of fraternal solidarity."

World Day of Prayer for Vocations 2015
Last edited 27th April 2015

The fourth Sunday of Easter is Good Shepherd Sunday, and this year it fell on 26 April 2015. It is also the annual World Day of Prayer for Vocations! Prayer is an essential ingredient for vocations. Pope Francis once said that behind and before every vocation to the priesthood or consecrated life, there is always the strong and intense prayer of someone... vocations are born in prayer and from prayer, and only through prayer can they persevere and bear fruit. Watch this video reflection for more.

Who Would Dare to Love ISIS? (A Letter from the People of the Cross)
Last edited 24th April 2015

As the world responds to the Islamic State with hatred and vengeance, there is one group that is responding differently. They are not allies with ISIS but enemies. And they have been slain by the thousands in the hands of ISIS. ISIS calls them The Nation of the Cross - The ones they have killed are bringing a message of forgiveness and hope. Declaring a love that they do not know - A love that reconciles even the worst of us and can make enemies into brothers.

A Very Special Easter - Video
Last edited 15th April 2015

Crayon drawings animate real-life responses from children as they talk about Easter. Their unfiltered and heartfelt responses bring humor and depth to the subject. Only a child could mix the silly and the sacred to so powerfully illustrate what makes the story of Jesus and how we celebrate it so special.

“Our Work is to Pray, So We Pray for the World” - Sister Therese (Benedictine Sister from Jamberoo Abbey)
Last edited 10th April 2015

When visitors enter the Jamberoo Abbey church, located in southern New South Wales, the first thing to strike them is the stunning backdrop of full-length glass windows behind the altar and tabernacle, bringing the beauty of God’s creation right into the heart of the church and allowing all who worship there to turn their prayer outward, for the world. The impact of the windows is no accident, according to the Abbey’s guest mistress, Sister Therese, but is an integral part of the church’s original design. “We are Benedictines and our work is to pray, so we pray for the world,” she says.
