What is the Angelus?

Last edited 9th August 2012

Every Sunday at 12 in the afternoon, the pope prays the Angelus with pilgrims that gather in St. Peter's Square. The Angelus recalls the moment of the Incarnation, when the angel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary that she was to be the mother of Jesus.

Faith of Olympic Proportions

Last edited 13th August 2012

Religion has been a part of the Olympic games since, well, always. The first Olympic games trace back to 776 B.C. when events tied to festivals celebrating Zeus, the most important Olympic god and father of humanity. Olympia, Greece, the site of the ancient games, served as a meeting place for worship and religious practice, while the sporting events — wrestling, running, javelin, boxing, and horse and chariot races — were dedicated to the gods.
