The Genealogy of Jesus

Last edited 23rd December 2010

Everyone has a family history... so what is the story behind the family that Jesus was born into? In this video Fr Robert Barron comments on the genealogy of Jesus, and talks about some of the individuals within Jesus' family tree. As we celebrate the birth of Jesus this Christmas, there is no better way to reflect on his very human, yet supernatural birth, than examining his family history.

Discover Who Bombed the Vatican During World War II

Last edited 16th November 2010

November 5, 1943 at 8:15 P.M. in the midst of World War II, a plane flies over the neutral state of Vatican City.  It then goes on to drop five bombs on the world's smallest state, causing severe damage to the water tank near the railway station, as well as the offices of the governorate  and the Vatican mosaic workshop. The international press spoke of nothing else for almost a week, all trying to guess who was responsible for the bombing. Seven days after the blasts, Pius XII asked the press to end all speculations and his only wish was to avoid further violence.

The Snows of Saint Mary Major

Last edited 5th August 2010

Saint Mary Major - one of the prime basilicas of Rome – appeared in all its grandeur on 5 August 2010, marking its special feast. According to an ancient tradition, on the 5th of August in the year 358, snow covered the Esquiline Hill. The event was foretold in a vision Pope Liberius had of the Virgin Mary, who told him to build a basilica at that place the snow appeared. That marked the origins of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major. Since that time, every August 5th, the Basilica hosts the celebration of the miracle of the snows.
