Vatican City, Jul 16, 2019 / 09:19 am (CNA).- Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, who was prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from 2012 and 2017, presented an analysis with a series of objections and criticisms of the Instrumentum Laboris, or working document, of the Synod on the Amazon, to be held in Rome in October. The following is the full text of Cardinal Mueller's analysis: “For any other foundation no man can lay, but that which is laid; which is Christ Jesus.” (1 Cor 3:11) On the Concept of Revelation as presented in the Instrumentum Laboris for the Amazon Synod Cardinal Gerhard Mueller 1.

Parish Priest Confronted: Liturgy of the Word & Distribution of the Holy Eucharist by Layman wit

ATLANTA - On Thursday, I posted an article about the 12:30pm weekday mass that I observed at St. Anna's Catholic Church in Monroe, GA, where the parish priest and deacon were absent and a layman led the congregation through the Liturgy of the Word and Distribution of Holy Communion.

I was impressed to find a Catholic woman, in the middle of Georgia, wearing a chapel veil and attending a Novus Ordo parish. I decided

What Putin wants from the Pope

President Vladimir Putin visits Pope Francis in November 2013 (Getty) Russian President Vladimir Putin must have been nervous. Pope Francis’s foreign policy has been agreeable to Moscow.

The official reason was to support the UGCC “in the delicate situation in which

Pope Francis holds reliquary containing bone fragments of St. Peter during chanting of the Creed, concluding Mass for the Year of Faith, Nov. 24, 2013 ROME, July 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — In an unexpected and what some in Rome are viewing as an ominous gesture, Pope Francis has given away relics of St. Peter the Apostle to an Orthodox patriarch. Following a solemn Mass on June 29, the liturgical feast of the Apostles Sts. Peter and Paul, the Pope gave a delegation representing Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople a bronze reliquary containing nine bone fragments of the first Pope.
