  • Francis presides over historic day of four popes 


    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Two 20th-century popes who changed the course of the Catholic Church became saints Sunday as Pope Francis honored John XXIII and John Paul II in a delicate balancing act aimed at bringing together the conservative and progressive wings of the church.
    As if to drive the message of unity home, Francis invited retired Pope Benedict XVI to join him on the altar of St. Peter’s Square, the first time a reigning and retired pope have celebrated Mass together in public in the 2,000-year history of the church.
    An estimated 800,000 people — many of them from John Paul’s native Poland — filled St. Peter’s, the streets around it and bridges over the Tiber River, a huge turnout but only half the size of the crowd that came out for John Paul’s 2011 beatification.
    John reigned from 1958-1963 and is a hero to liberal Catholics for having convened the Second Vatican Council. The meetings brought the church into the modern era by allowing Mass to be celebrated in local languages rather than Latin and encouraged greater dialogue with people of other faiths, particularly Jews.

  • How important is the resurrection?

     

    “Just how important is ‘the resurrection’? Isn’t the important thing just that people believe in Jesus and love others like He loved?”—Rob

    Over the centuries, the importance of an historical, bodily resurrection has been downplayed by numerous schools of thought. Some have dismissed as myth or wishful thinking or outright fraud the early Christian declaration of a resurrection event. Others have expressed doubt concerning the veracity of the biblical record. Some critics, both within Christianity and without, have promoted the idea that indeed the historical event is not necessary; that is, one merely needs to possess the kind of hopeful faith that would exist had a resurrection actually occurred.
