Pope Francis and Armenian Catholicos Karekin II sign joint declaration on family, unity and solidarity


The Pope's prayer in Armenia: “May our communion be complete”...
Rocco Palmo
Amid what's arguably been the most under-covered PopeTrip of recent times – all the more given the usual hysteria surrounding this pontificate – Francis' weekend trek to Armenia hasn't lacked for striking moments and, indeed, a pocket of controversy in the Pope's unscripted use of the charged word "genocide" in his remarks to the country's leadership: a move which...

Brantly Millegan
NBA star Lebron James just led his team the Cleveland Cavaliers to their first NBA Championship, and his third. James is considered to be one of the best basketball players ever and was named MVP of the NBA Playoffs. But did you know that James believes in Jesus Christ?

You are called to be a witness in a new age of martyrdom...
R. Jared Staudt
When we think of the age of the martyrs, the great witness against the idol worship of the Roman Empire comes to mind. The Romans did not force any kind of religious uniformity on its conquered territories, save that the Roman Emperor himself could be included in a wide pantheon of gods. In a way, the Romans were forcing relativism and tolerance on their citizens: everyone can worship whatever god they prefer...

Pin the tale on the Christian? An ancient blame game is still in use...
John Clark
It would be a terrible understatement to say that Christians received a lion’s share of the blame for Roman society’s ills. Much more than that, Christianity essentially received all the blame; indeed, that was an institutional part of the societal framework. Tertullian noted that Christians were being blamed not only for every class of crime (including...

There were three demons who told Satan about their plan to destroy a certain man.

At the Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church gathered in Kolymbari, Crete, family metaphors are common. Sister churches. Brother bishops. Explaining why the concept of conciliarity means that each church is equal—i.e., that Russia isn’t more important than smaller churches—Dr. Ionut Mavrichi, spokesman for the Romanian Orthodox patriarchate...
