By Dr. Jeff Mirus, Catholic Culture - The future Pope Francis investigated a Eucharistic miracle that took place in Buenos Aires in 1996. I learned of this just the other day, when we received a fund appeal which included a report on “Eucharistic Miracles” from the newsletter of Saint Joseph de Clairval Abbey in France. The report cites scientific evidence which links this miracle to the more famous one in Lanciano, Italy around 750 AD—and by inference to all Eucharistic miracles.
By Tony Perkins, FRC - The last thing Planned Parenthood needs is more access to kids. So imagine parents’ reaction when they found out that the abortion group isn’t just visiting schools—it’s moving in! Thanks to a forced donation from taxpayers, Planned Parenthood is about to open 50 clinics inside Los Angeles schools, the biggest public education takeover of its kind. And maybe, the most controversial… These “wellbeing centers,” as schools are calling them, are all part of a new model Planned Parenthood is hoping to replicate in other cities.
By Matt Hadro, CNA - The White House hosted dozens of Catholic leaders on Monday afternoon for an internal briefing on life and religious freedom issues… The off the record briefing, held in the Indian Treaty room of the Executive Office Building, focused on “life, religious freedom, and other issues pertinent to the Catholic faith community,” according to an invite provided to participants. Attendees also had the opportunity to share their observations or concerns with the administration.
By Sandro Magister, L'Espresso - Pope Francis hammers relentlessly against sovereignisms and nationalisms, and in spite of this his faithful vote en masse for sovereignist and nationalist parties, in Italy and in Europe… In Italy, for example, the party most voted for today by practicing Catholics is Lega Nord, with its head Matteo Salvini (in the photo), devoted to the Blessed Mother and at the same time a champion of the rejection of immigrants… In the narrow circle of confidants of Jorge Mario Bergoglio there are some who must have pointed out to him this contrast between what he preaches and the behavior of the faithful.
