    Credit: Michael Brant via Flickr (CC BY-NC-ND 2.0). San Diego, Calif., Jul 3, 2015 / 10:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Few love stories can say that they began at the age of eight. But for Jeanette and Alexander Toczko, they couldn't have imagined life any other way. What began as a childhood crush later bloomed into a deep, committed love – a love that would last throughout a war, five children, and seventy-five years of marriage. “Their hearts beat as one from as long as I can remember,” said Aimee Toczko-Cushman, one of the couple's five children, according to the Daily...

    German media are reporting on a fiftieth anniversary panel discussion of Nostra aetate, the Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian Religions of the Second Vatican Council, organized by the German Catholic bishops conference. It was meant to be a respectful look back and a celebration of good relationship between Christians and Jews in Germany. But it turned out differently than planned. Josef Schuster, the president of the Central Council of Jews, unexpectedly called for the revocation of the newly formulated Good Friday petition for the Jews which Pope Benedict wrote in 2008. Even more unexpected, Bishop Heinrich...

    Calling all Christians to unite together in prayer tonight at 11:00 EST. We know the effectiveness of prayer (James 5:13-18). After our Lord had ascended the church had gathered in the upper room. Acts 1:14 tells us "these all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer...." We may recall when Peter was in jail the church was praying fervently to God for him. The Lord sent an angel to free Peter (Acts 12:1-7). I can think of no other course of action for the followers of Christ than to cry out to Him at this time.

    June 19, 2015 Friday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time Reading 1 2 Cor 11:18, 21-30 Brothers and sisters: Since many boast according to the flesh, I too will boast. To my shame I say that we were too weak! But what anyone dares to boast of (I am speaking in foolishness) I also dare. Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they children of Israel? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I. Are they ministers of Christ? (I am talking like an insane person). I am still more, with far greater labors, far more...

    June 18, 2015 Thursday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time Reading 1 2 Cor 11:1-11 Brothers and sisters: If only you would put up with a little foolishness from me! Please put up with me. For I am jealous of you with the jealousy of God, since I betrothed you to one husband to present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his cunning, your thoughts may be corrupted from a sincere and pure commitment to Christ. For if someone comes and preaches another Jesus than the one...
