The 5,000-capacity Liushi church in China, which boasts more than twice as many seats as Westminster Abbey and a 66-metre crucifix that can be seen for miles around, opened last year with one theologian declaring it a 'miracle that such a small town was able to build such a grand church.'

One Man’s Amazing Journey Toward the Catholic Faith
Last edited 22nd April 2014

Richard Cole was not much of a believer: By his own admission, he didn’t pray, he didn’t worship. He was in recovery following years of alcohol abuse. Raised Methodist, he had fled the church of his youth to dabble in Zen, t’ai chi, New Age, witchcraft.

Last edited 22nd April 2014

Killer robots are the stuff of sci fi nightmares. To speak of their ethical use sounds like an oxymoron. Their whole point is that they have no morality. But now killer robots — drones in an advanced stage of development — are a daytime reality. They will be autonomous in their operation, able to identify targets, track them down, work out the best way to destroy them, and learn from their failures — all without the need for human direction. These qualities do raise serious ethical questions...


Building a Relationship that Changes the World
Last edited 21st April 2014

I’ve been struggling and wrestling with this question over the last month now and it reached a climax when ten days ago, I put my wife on a plane to what is literally one of the world’s most cut off and inaccessible places. There is next to no reliable infrastructure and the mobile reception is patchy at best, with no emergency health care services if something goes wrong. Yet this week, at a point when I hadn’t heard from my wife at all for three entire days, I had an inexplicable peace. So am I irresponsible, indifferent or negligent? Am I a bad husband (I’ve certainly asked myself that!)? Or is there something greater going on here?

Holy Thursday Homily of Pope Francis
Last edited 18th April 2014

Pope Francis preached an extemporaneous homily during the celebration of the Mass of the Lord’s Supper, which was held at S. Maria della Provvidenza, a rehabilitation and long-term care facility in the suburbs of Rome. The following is an English translation of Pope Francis’ reflections on the Lord’s loving act of service, an act which the Pope himself imitated later in the mass, kneeling down to wash the feet of twelve patients of the centre.
