A daily guide to what’s happening in the Catholic Church
Pope Francis urged Christians to discover the date of their baptism and celebrate the day annually at his general audience this morning (short video, full video).
The Pope has written a letter to Eugenio Scalfari, the atheist founder of La Repubblica newspaper, about whether God forgives those who don’t believe in him (full Italian text).
Jesuit priest Fr I Michael Bellafiore offers “10 ways to revitalise the Catholic Church“.
George Weigel praises GK Chesterton’s “singularly fetching way of demolishing an intellectual opponent without drawing blood or leaving bruises“.
And a priest who gave Francis a 1984 Renault claims papal security guards are terrified the Pope will “be tooling around the Vatican in my car“.
