Last edited 10th February 2016

The Pope Made a Surprise Visit to Pray at the Relics of Padre Pio and Saint Leopold Mandic
Last edited 8th February 2016

After having lunch, in his home in Santa Marta, Pope Francis went to St. Peter's Basilica to pray to the relics of Padre Pio and Saint Leopold Mandic. He was accompanied by Monsignor Fisichella. He appeared without warning, to the surprise of the hundreds of pilgrims who were in the basilica. Upon arrival, he stopped standing in front of the relics of Padre Pio and Saint Leopold Mandic. Then he sat down next to some nuns and friars and joined them in prayer as one with the pilgrims. Even he carried in his hand a picture of Padre Pio and read a prayer repeatedly. He was very concentrated during his prayer, while the visitors in the basilica, shocked to see the Pope there, did not stop taking pictures. When finished, he walked back home to Santa Marta.

Syria 'Exterminating Detainees': UN Report
Last edited 8th February 2016

Detainees held by the Syrian government are dying on a massive scale, amounting to a state policy of "extermination" of the civilian population, a crime against humanity, United Nations investigators say. The UN commission of inquiry on Monday called on the Security Council to impose "targeted sanctions" on Syrian officials in the civilian and military hierarchy responsible for or complicit in deaths, torture and disappearances in custody, but stopped short of naming them. The report, Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Deaths in Detention, covers the period from March 10, 2011 to November 30, 2015. It is based on interviews with 621 survivors and witnesses, and evidence gathered by the team led by chairman Paulo Pinheiro.

Confessions of a Girl Who Sucks at Praying
Last edited 8th February 2016

Look, I’m by no means an expert here but I know I got hung up on the idea of there being a right and wrong way to pray and obsessing over that made me scared to pray for a long time. It can be too easy to psych yourself out and think you don’t have the right words or the right location to pray and then what happens is your just end up not praying! Jesus just wants to talk to you! He knows you might not always say the right thing but as long as you make the effort to converse with Him then you’re heading in the right direction! The more you pray the better you get at it and if you do it every day, you’ll be awesome at it in no time!
