VATICAN CITY (RNS) Pope Francis met with President Obama for the first time on Thursday (March 27) in a meeting heavy in symbolism that reportedly touched on some hot-button disputes between the White House and the U.S. Catholic bishops.
ROME (RNS) The Vatican said Monday (March 17) that Pope Francis will preside over a prayer vigil dedicated to victims of mob violence in Italy and their families.
In the first century BC, a grassy hillside just north of what is now St. Peter’s Square was used as a burial place for local Romans.
ROME (RNS) Did you hear that Pope Francis plans to call a Third Vatican Council? Or that he uncovered previously unknown Bible verses? Or that he sees the story of Adam and Eve as just a fable?
Here’s the problem: None of it is true.
