    Pope Francis has brought American Catholics to their knees. As the pontiff wraps up his first year in the Vatican, a new poll has found that 40 percent of his U.S. flock says they are praying more often than they did a year ago. It could be one sign of what's being called the "Francis Effect" — the impact of a very popular pope with the common touch who isn't afraid to shake things up.

    Terry McAuliffe and Ken Cuccinelli are both looking to make Tuesday's election for governor into a referendum on President Barack Obama's health overhaul. McAuliffe planned to campaign Monday with Vice President Joe Biden a day after Obama weighed in, throwing national Democrats' full backing into the race. Cuccinelli, meanwhile, would be campaigning with Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and planned his final campaign rally with former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, a hero of the libertarian wing of the GOP.

    May is the "month which the piety of the faithful has especially dedicated to Our Blessed Lady... During this month Christians, both in church and in the privacy of the home, offer up to Mary from their hearts an especially fervent and loving homage of prayer and veneration.” (Paul VI: Encyclical on the Month of May) What better way to please the Blessed Mother and her Son, Jesus Christ, than praying the rosary as she asked us to do at at Fatima. I’d encourage anyone who has thought of saying a family rosary to begin or continue for this month...

Another infant showed signs of abuse. We want to warn you that some of the photos with this story are very graphic and not appropriate for children. Officers at the Fort Smith Police Department have seen many things, but this is one of the worst cases.

    The daughter of French far-right leader Jean-Marie Le Pen has compared Muslims praying outside overcrowded mosques with the Nazi occupation.Marine Le Pen said at a weekend rally of the anti-immigrant National Front there were "10 to 15" places in France where Muslims worshipped in the streets. "For those who want to talk a lot about World War II, if it's about occupation, then we could also talk about (that), because that is occupation of territory," she said at the gathering in Lyons, which was part of her bid for the party leadership when her father steps down in January.

    A Chicago man says he's fighting charges of disorderly conduct for simply standing on a public sidewalk and praying. Joseph Holland, a 25-year-old graduate student at Northwestern University, says he was standing still praying the rosary outside a Planned Parenthood facility in downtown Chicago July 3 when police arrested him for violating the city's new "Bubble Zone" ordinance. The law, passed in October, states that a person cannot approach within 8 feet of another person without consent "for the purpose of passing a leaflet or handbill to, displaying a sign to, or engaging in oral protest, education or counseling" within...

    A judge has ruled that two Christians fired by the University of Texas at Arlington for praying for a fellow employee, will get their "day in court." The women were fired in 2006 for praying at work after hours for the coworker, who at the time was not even aware of their desire to pray for her needs. Officials at U.T.A. in the Dallas suburb of Arlington, claimed the women were fired because praying for someone was a form of "harassment." Judge Terry R. Means of the Northern District Court in Texas says, "Can a prayer for someone constitute harassment...

    Riyadh – Worshippers at a mosque in a Saudi Arabian village near Mecca discovered they were praying for 10 years in the wrong direction, a newspaper in the country reported Thursday. Muslims are meant to pray in the direction of the most sacred site in Islam, known as the Kaaba, a large granite structure in the holy city of Mecca. Villagers in Hadda, 20 kilometres north-west of Mecca, should have prayed southeast, but instead bent down five times a day in a northern direction. After realizing the error, the mosque’s leaders changed the direction of the prayer carpets so the...

    A new Biblical Obama slogan making the rounds on conservative T-shirts and bumper stickers is being interpreted as calling for the president's death. The slogan “Pray for Obama: Psalm 109:8” seems innocent enough, but the actual verse reads: “Let his days be few; and let another take his office.” The psalm goes on to say: "May his children be orphans, and his wife a widow." Read the entire psalm here.

The first time Joe Biden told Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace that he was "praying," it got my attention. By the third time - using the variant "I pray to God" - I was thoroughly curious. Then something happened at the end of the interview that might explain Joe's sudden bout of religiosity. By the way, Biden claimed to be 'praying' in response to various pieces of evidence that Wallace confronted him with suggesting that, at long last, the...

    Jefferson can find hope in past caseFriday, May 26, 2006 Lolis Eric Elie "There are two sides to every story," Congressman William Jefferson said Monday. I doubt anybody would disagree with that general sentiment. But unanimity may have been lost when the New Orleans Democrat tried to apply that platitude to the specifics of his own situation. We've heard only the FBI's side, but it's pretty compelling. The feds say they have a videotape showing Jefferson accepting a $100,000 bribe. They also say most of that money ended up in Jefferson's freezer. Two of Jefferson's former associates have pleaded guilty....

    Please pray for my Jewish friend who is only in his early 50's and is dying of cancer. The doctor's have given him 3 - 8 weeks to live. He is Jewish, but has lived a secular life. I have to say he treated me like a son for the 10 years I worked for him and I wouldn't be where I am today here in the US if it wasn't for him. Haim, I hope you beat this cancer, but I am one of little faith these days. I wish I knew how to share my faith with you,...

  • ACLU Wants Jail For Public School Teachers, Principal

    05/19/2005 6:27:20 PM PDT · by blueberry12 · 52 replies · 1,374+ views
    NEW ORLEANS -- The American Civil Liberties Union has asked a federal judge to jail public school teachers and administrators for allegedly violating a court-imposed ban on school prayers. It's the fourth time the ACLU has told Judge Ginger Berrigan that officials in Louisiana's Tangipahoa Parish are flouting her prayer ban. This time, the ACLU said an elementary school teacher repeatedly held prayers in her fourth-grade class, encouraged students to bring their Bibles to school, held Bible studies in the school cafeteria and admonished students who didn't show up. In addition, the ACLU cited a prayer "in Jesus' name" that...

    ROME, NOV. 23, 2004 (Zenit.org).- Answered by Father Edward McNamara, professor of liturgy at the Regina Apostolorum Pontifical University. Q: What is the official teaching of the Church on using taped music at Mass? We just attended a funeral today and two songs were played over the loud speaker that were professional recordings. Each of these had a Christian message. Another song was pre-recorded onto a tape and was sung by a relative. Is there any official document that has guidelines that would help with this situation? -- C.Y., Murdock, Minnesota A: There are few universal norms which explicitly forbid...

    A Lebanese has been the victim of a scam orchestrated by a Syrian and a Nigerian who made him believe they could multiply his $50,000 four times after they hypnotized him, judicial sources said Wednesday. The victim, identified by the sources only as Jihad, woke up to discover his “pocket emptied.” He rushed to the Judicial Palace to file a complaint, according to which Internal Security Forces personnel arrested the Syrian national but were unable to locate the Nigerian. Investigations showed that the Syrian, identified as Jamal, was a professional conman. He had been previously arrested along with his Nigerian...
