Benedict XVI argues that Jesus was born “several years” earlier than is commonly thought in his new book, Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives, published yesterday.

The beauty of the faith can never be an obstacle to the creation of artistic beauty,” Pope Benedict has said in a letter to members of the Pontifical Council for Culture.

Opus Dei is suing the Danish publisher of a strategy-based game called “Opus Dei: Existence After Religion” for trademark infringement.

A Catholic diocese in America has asked a church that has offered “blended Roman Catholic and Episcopal services for three decades” to stop the practice.

Former Anglican clergyman Fr Dwight Longenecker argues that the real crisis in the Church of England is not about women bishops.

Kathryn Boughton profiles Declan Murphy, a former Catholic priest who has dedicated his life to helping haemophiliacs.

And Vatican Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi tweeted in Latin yesterday to promote the launch of the Pontifical Academy for Latin (Cardinal Ravasi’s Twitter account).

    Maybe God should sue Opus Dei for a] trademark infringement , b] breach of contract & c] defamation.

    Why should God ever submit his work to the judgements of man’s opinion – even in jest – not least if the works to be judged are not to the taste of a personal opinion?

    The Popes love Opus Dei.
    And when St. Josemaria was canonized, a third of the world’s bishops wrote letters in support – which is incredible, given how much the secular media hates Opus Dei and how politically incorrect it is to support St. Josemaria.

    Opus Dei is hated for the same reason that Pope Benedict is hated – they dared to be real Christians.
