Canadian Group Wants Curb on Exorcisms

Last edited 19th April 2012

The Centre for Inquiry, a Toronto group, said that exorcisms should be restricted because they are dangerous and unscientific. The group said that behavior that might be interpreted as evidence of demonic possession can also be attributed to mental illness (a fact that the Catholic Church does not dispute). The group professed alarm at the idea that exorcisms would be performed regularly--although there is no evidence that the ritual is done.

Regina Coeli

Last edited 18th April 2012

Every Sunday, the Holy Father meets with a crowd of people in St. Peter's Square to pray the Angelus. But during the Easter season, he prays what we call the "Regina Coeli" instead - which is Latin for 'Queen of Heaven'. It is a good reminder that the Easter season continues until Pentecost, when we will go back to praying the Angelus. Watch this video for more.

Pope John Paul II's Divine Mercy Sunday Homily - 2001

Last edited 12th April 2012

"Fear not, I am the first and the last, and the living one; I died, and behold I am alive for evermore", (Rev 1:17-18). Visit this article to read the full text of Pope John Paul II's homily, on the first universal celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday in 2001. The Feast of the Divine Mercy was very close to JPII's heart during his pontificate, and it remains an important part of his legacy - he died on the Vigil of the Divine Mercy, and was beatified on Divine Mercy Sunday on 1 May 2011.
